Ellie is on a much-needed dream vacation away from her boss and the pressures of work as a lawyer. She meets Sam, a professional soccer player enjoying some time off from the real world. While Ellie is wary of relationships seeing failed ones every day, she can’t deny being drawn to Sam. What ensues is a week of the two growing close in the idyllic setting perfect for romance.
I need to be vague with my review because it would be easy to spoil such a wonderful story. After knowing each other for a day, they both knew there was an incredible connection, things just felt easy and right between the two. Ellie is the strong main character we need because she’s strong and assertive, she’s a bit insecure in her relationship and that’s completely understandable. Sam is sweet, he’s open with his feelings, their relationship makes you swoon.
I was lucky enough to be able to Beta read this and I’m so pleased I was asked to. This was such an interesting and well thought out story, there’s more to their relationship at play than the reader realizes. The characters are great and I really liked Cass and would love to see her get her own book. There’s the right amount of tension, drama, and romance, a great combo for another wonderful read from author Kristina Beck, very well done!
