Some mistakes are worth repeating…
Tasha Riordan's one night with Luc Bradshaw was the best of her life. The following two—when she got thrown into a Bahamian jail on bogus charges—were her worst. Now, seven years later, the undercover DEA agent is back. Invading her town. Her restaurant. Her fantasies. She can't trust a man who lied to her. Yet, neither can she trust herself—not when their chemistry burns even hotter than before.
Learning he has two half brothers shocks Luc. Discovering they live in the same town as Tasha—that's a different kind of thrill. Their mutual lust is still off the charts, but he can't get her to listen to his side of what happened on that long-ago night. Good thing he's got powers of persuasion that go deeper than words. Because nothing has ever felt this right…
This is one of those books that was simply fun to read. It starts out with that morning after in the Bahamas where everything went from fantasy-worthy perfect to every tourists nightmare for Tasha. She never thought she'd see the drug-dealing "Diego" again, so imagine her surprise when she walked into her friends house only be introduced to their brother Luc...the man who was "Diego" and left her to rot in a Bahamian jail.
Luc was actually an undercover DEA agent and he was assured that Tasha in no way got caught up in that mess. In fact, he's always thought she ran out on him that morning after a night that he thought had been pretty incredible. So there's a whole mystery of what really happened in the Bahamas seven years ago playing in the background of the story throughout the entire book.
But now these two have to get along because her two best friends are involved with his half-brothers and they are constantly being thrown together. Tasha doesn't trust him to not break her heart. He's going back to an undercover job in the DEA...there's no way for their chemistry to end up as anything more than heartache.
It's a good set-up and I did really enjoy the book. I liked all the characters and the interactions between everyone. Tasha runs a pizza parlor and there was a sub-story about a couple of teens that was a nice sub-plot too. The book and story kept me entertained and engaged the entire time I read it.
I'd definitely recommend this one for a light, fun read.
