Niki Hamilton had her hopes pinned on moving to Europe with her boyfriend. But then he dumped her. By text message. Just before her sister’s wedding. Left dateless in a flamingo-pink monstrosity of a bridesmaid dress, she decides to drown her sorrows in a glass of tall, dark, and handsome.
Firefighter Grant Powers has been burned by love, but when his best friend’s new sister-in-law falls into his arms—and stays there for one sexy night—he enjoys the experience a little too much.
Then a rental snafu leaves Niki temporarily homeless. So, gentleman and masochist that he is, Grant offers his spare bedroom. Despite the smoldering sexual tension between them, starting anything would be playing with fire.
Now, they just have to survive living together for a few weeks…
Niki Hamilton is just looking for one night of rebound. Having been recently dumped by her boyfriend she has a one night stand with the best man of her sister’s wedding. Grant Powers is freshly burned from a divorce, he is not looking for a relationship. When Niki is left homeless unexpectedly Grant is asked to take her in by her brother in law. They are not looking to rekindle their one-night stand but the tension between them is palpable.
In ” an Oyster Shell – It was an alright romance nothing that was especially wowing.
The Pearls – I like that is a series. I might go back and read the first book. It reads great as a stand-alone. You get to see other characters in the book that would make sense came from the last book. You get a sense of their story with out reading the first one. You can go back if you like.
The characters were lovable and some easy to hate. Niki’s boss was a real jerk and was easy to dislike. It added an interesting element to the story. Niki was a great character who adapted to the obstacles she was faced with. Grant was a loveable hero. Niki and Grant played off eachother really well. I really like how you could see Niki through Grant’s perspective.
The romance was sweet. It started out as a one night stand and ended up being more than that. It was a romance that progressed nicely through out the book.
The Sand – The book didn’t wow me too much. It was a pretty average romance. Nothing in particular stood out about it.
