Synopsis: JUST A SUMMER FLING?Morgan Merrifield sacrificed her teaching career to try to save her family's bed-and-breakfast and care for her younger sister. She can't let herself get distracted by Ryan Butler. After all, the rugged ex-Special Forces soldier is only in Seashell Bay for the summer. But her longtime crush soon flares into real desire-and with one irresistible kiss, she's swept away.
Ryan values his freedom. As much as he wants Morgan, he's not ready to settle down with anyone, much less in sleepy Seashell Bay. But his code of honor doesn't allow him to leave a woman in distress-and she's in desperate need of help to fix the inn. It only takes one day working under the same roof and Ryan is already hoping for a lifetime of hot summer nights . .
My Thoughts: This was my first time reading something by this author. At first, I found it to be a little slow, but after the third of fourth chapter it really started to pick up for me. Morgan left her teaching job to come back to Seashell bay to try and save her family's Inn. Ryan Butler, ex-special ops is on leave before he renews his contract. Morgan and Ryan shared something the summer before and when they meet on the ferry to Seashell Bay, Morgan has an idea. Offer Ryan a room at the failing Inn in exchange for him to help fix up the place. During Ryan's stay with Morgan the two of them realize that there is something between, but Morgan doesn't want to be a summer fling. She wants a real relationship and Ryan isn't the man for that. Poor Morgan just can't get a break, it seems like disasters follow her around. From a fire to everything going wrong. Ryan is by her side the whole time, he helps Morgan save the Inn and at the same time he ends up falling for her. Ryan decides that he doesn't want to renew his contract, that he wasn't to stay in Seashell bay and help Morgan, but when the company offers him his dream job, he has a huge decision to make.
By the end of this book I loved all the characters and I didn't want the book to end.
