Genre: Contemporary Romance
Alice Evans wants to shake things up. Two years after tragedy first brought her back to Cape Cod, she’s still going through the motions, stuck in the same old routine. She’s looking for something to get her heart racing… Something, or someone — like the handsome stranger who comes roaring into town on a classic motorcycle, turning heads and sending the summer temperatures soaring.
Jackson Kinsella isn’t looking to be tied down. A world-class photographer, he’s just in town visiting his grandfather and getting some much-needed rest and relaxation. But the mysterious brunette he meets on the Fourth of July won’t let his mind rest, and the sparks between them are anything but relaxing…
The connection between them is immediate, and soon, their romance is heating up Sweetbriar Cove. But can Alice find the strength to start over? And will Jackson’s restless spirit keep him from true love? Find out in the new swoon-worthy standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!
This is a sugary sweet story perfect for a day at the pool or beach. If you’re familiar with the Sweetbriar Cove series, you’ll enjoy re-appearances by previous characters and couples, but if you’re new like me, you’ll get swept away into the world of this breezy little beach town and want to go back and read from the beginning. While this is a standalone series, I do think I would’ve benefited from reading from the beginning and maybe would’ve connected a bit more to the story. While I did love Jackson & Alice and thought they were adorable together, I wish there was a bit more steam and intensity. I did enjoy this for the most part though, and would recommend to anyone looking for a light and quick read.
