Sometimes secrets surface after the wedding date.

‘Don’t wait for the storm to pass; learn to dance in the rain…’
Laura has been married to the man of her dreams for seven months. But a week before the wedding, Matthew made a terrible mistake.
Escaping the humiliation that is now her marriage, Laura is whisked off to Florida’s Key West by her best friend Marty. A carefree holiday full of cocktails and fun, surrounded by gorgeous, tanned men, is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Distraction comes in the form of sexy Cuban scuba diver Leo. Laura’s instant attraction to him knocks her flying, and she falls hard.
As the end of the holiday approaches, Laura doesn’t want to go home. Is it time to face the music? Or is there more to Key West than a holiday romance?

Oh wow. What a great book. I love Paige’s books and I think that this just beat Lucy in the Sky as my favourite Paige Toon book. As with all of Paige’s books I was hooked instantly. I don’t know how she does that but, I love it.

The location well, it’s just heavenly. The sun, the sand and then the men. Oh the men and by men I really mean man.

Leo. That man is hot, sexy and troubled. A chiselled jaw, dark eyes, dark eyebrows, olive skin and short black hair. Did I mention hot and sexy? Sorry I’m a little bit in love.

Lets talk about Laura. Laura was first introduced in Chasing Daisy. Here she was portrayed as a perfect socialite and quite honestly I didn’t like her. At all. However after one or two pages of this book I completely changed my mind.

This book had a little bit of everything; laughter, sadness, sun, sand, love and heartbreak. There was such a shocking twist in this book. I did not see it coming.

I loved the ending of this book and I really, really hope Paige brings these characters back for a sequel.
