My Rating: 3/5
Goodreads Synopsis: When small-town girl Emma LaRue won a vacation to an exclusive tropical island, a last minute cancellation meant she would be going by herself. Shy and studious, she never had time to fall in love, and often wondered if she was just meant to be alone. However, that all changed when a handsome stranger literally walked into her life while on the beach and sparks began to fly.New York's most eligible billionaire bachelor Jack Saunders thought this vacation would be the perfect escape, one last hurrah, before taking full control of his father's company. When an innocent Emma didn't recognize him, he figured that he might get a chance to have a vacation from being rich. He didn't tell her about the cars, the yacht, or the penthouse. All he did was let her fall in love with him. Soon, Jack found that he was the one falling in love with Emma. When they enjoy a fantasy marriage ceremony on the beach, they thought it was a bit of harmless fun before returning to their normal lives. A bittersweet goodbye was supposed to be the end of their perfect vacation romance, but when photos of the ceremony were leaked to the press, everything changed.
Feeling lied to and thrust into a world of wealth and privilege, Emma must choose between following her dreams or following her heart. Will she be content at being nothing more than the billionaire's wife, or will she return to her normal life with only memories of saltwater kisses?
My Review: This was a cute story and a must read for the beach. I enjoyed the story, but I didn't love it. This book had a lot of moments where all I could think was "yeah, right. Like that could ever happen in real life." It's a story that you would wish is your own. At the beginning of the story, there appeared to be a definite connection between Emma and Jack. They shared a steamy week at the beach and did something that neither of them imagined doing by the time they left. However, when the setting of the book changed back to their 'real lives' the book just got to be a little too ridiculous to believe. Cute read if you don't want anything too deep.
