When book doctor Jane Pearson arrives at Griffin Lowell's beach house, she expects a brooding loner. After all, his agent hired her to help the reclusive war journalist write his stalled memoir. Instead, Jane finds a tanned, ocean-blue-eyed man in a Hawaiian shirt, hosting a beach party and surrounded by beauties. Faster than he can untie a bikini top, Griffin lets Jane know he doesn't want her. But she desperately needs this job and digs her toes in the sand.
Griffin intends to spend the coming weeks at Beach House No. 9 taking refuge from his painful memories-and from the primly sexy book doctor who wants to bare his soul. But warm nights, moonlit walks and sultry kisses just may unlock both their guarded hearts....
Firstly I was reading this as part of the TBR challenge, new author to me. However just seen the date so it doesn't count! Should have checked more closely.
However that said, Christie Ridgway is a new author to me and I will be reading more of her books, starting with the next one in this series. I enjoyed it. It has great characters - a fun family, a crusty old man next door and two main characters that are placed in opposition to each other, with a satisfactory outcome at the end.
I liked the pyschological aspect to this novel, with the exploration of PTSD that the journalist/writer was suffering from. A good read.
