Can past hurts be forgotten to make a future together?
Jaqueline Pennington once had the world at her feet, but she threw it all away for a man from the wrong side of the tracks—handsome, smart and the love of her life, Logan Forrester—only to find that she’d dropped everything for him to abandon her.
Logan wanted one thing out of life—to be with Jackie and give her the life she deserved. When that plan went to hell, he walked away and applied himself to becoming a prosperous security software engineer. A job that, years later, brings him back to Jackie.
They haven’t seen or heard from each other since that fateful night, but the chemistry that still crackles between them is too good for either one to pass up. So Jackie and Logan reach an agreement and burn off the sexual tension, getting closure during their time in St. Lucia.
But what happens to their plans when the truth about their separation comes out? Can they get over the past to build a future?
Jackie and Logan have a past. They used to be in love, until something tore them apart. Imagine their surprise when they see each other after years apart while acting as attendants at a destination wedding. The bride is Jackie’s childhood friend and the groom needed someone to fill in for a missing groomsman. Logan is the developer of the security system of the resort and agreed to help the groom out. Each thought the other left them in the past.
Upon seeing each other, they both feel the intense attraction to each other as if time never passed. Logan sides up to Jackie in the pool and shows her just how hot she makes him. They agree to use the time together to burn off some sexual tension and get the closure they never got before. Before long, their agreement turns to more and they fall in love with each other.
While I really enjoyed the story and the couple reconnecting, I found the misunderstanding of their breakup to be frustrating and made Jackie seem very immature. I understand how feelings get hurt and the misinformation about their breakup caused them to move on. But, why wouldn’t they contact each other after realizing that they left? I just didn’t fully understand the problem.
Other than that, the writing was great and the characterization well done. I really enjoyed the details of the beach, resort, and hotel and could envision each place in my mind very easily. Overall, this is a good story with that one thing that bothered me.
