My rating: 4 of 5 stars
David Hannon hasn’t written a word of his latest detective thriller since he threw out his lover Clark five months ago after he caught Clark cheating on him. So when his agent informs him that he’s about to leave New York to take a little trip to an island off the south coast of England, David is torn. It could be just what he needs—or the vacation from hell. Once he arrives there, David quickly falls in love with the beautiful, tranquil Steephill Cove. The quiet little bay has everything David needs, including the opportunity to get laid regularly, in the gorgeous shape of Taylor Monroe, who runs a water sports equipment hire business. David’s a happy man. He always writes better when there is a plentiful supply of good sex.
When Taylor first meets the Lighthouse’s newest occupant, he can almost hear the click. David is just what Taylor needs—an older, sexy guy who is willing to share his bed, no strings, no promises. At least, that was the plan. As the two men spend more time together, Taylor finds himself growing to like the confident writer more and more. Taylor’s family like him. Taylor’s friends like him. And then there comes the moment when Taylor realizes that maybe it’s no longer a matter of liking David, but something a whole lot stronger.
Unfortunately, his epiphany occurs a little too late, when a visitor to the bay forces Taylor to accept that David might be spoken for. In any case, David is leaving at the end of September—and it looks like he’ll be taking Taylor’s heart with him…
So what did I think?
I just liked this book. I’m not sure I really even know why. There is no stand out reason, no major event or climatic moment that enthralled me, the characters are lovely but not spectacular – something just appealed.
The story is about David, a well-published author who is suffering writer’s block after being betrayed by his lover. His publisher forces him to take a break and books him accommodation on an island off the English coast.
Here he meets free-spirit Taylor, a younger man who eventually captures his heart.
I loved the location, I loved Taylor and I enjoyed the story with it’s low-angst but a few moments of tension and misunderstanding.
This was a great sequel to the first book, although totally able to be read stand-alone.
