City girl Janine Wilson’s career is taking off but the same can’t be said about her love life. No matter—as manager of the Inn at Blue Moon Bay, Janine’s in charge of throwing a huge party to celebrate the Inn’s recent expansion and doesn’t have time for distractions. Unfortunately, two big ones suddenly show up: her thrill-seeking incompatible ex, Cody, who refuses to accept their breakup, and Cody’s handsome and charming best friend, Texas cowboy Jackson Davis.

Reluctantly, Janine agrees to meet Cody for one last dinner because Cody says he has a huge business opportunity for the Inn. But when Cody takes her on a boat ride to show her his great idea, Jackson is at the helm. Janine has been trying to resist her attraction to Jackson because they have no common interests, not to mention he’s her ex’s best friend. Once they stop on a deserted island, though, Janine doesn’t expect the sparks that fly between them, the spontaneous kiss they share, or what Cody does after witnessing said kiss.

Janine was convinced she needed a sophisticated man who shared the same interests as her. Now that she’s been stranded on a deserted island with Jackson, will she discover he’s everything she never knew she really wanted?
My Review: 5 Stars
Janine is a take-charge character and when a tricky little ploy by her ex-boyfriend leaves her stranded with her crush on an island, the humor emerges. You see, Janine is a city girl and snakes, rain, cooking over a campfire with limited supplies aren't in her repertoire.  

Although Janine is a girly girl and everything on the island scares her or bothers her, she eventually mellows and I really grew to like her. Jackson is one cool cowboy and his patience and swoon definitely make him a keeper. I adored him from the start and that feeling only grew stronger as the story progressed. This relationship definitely has sparks!

I have come to cherish Blue Moon Bay. I adore the characters who live there; I'm fascinated by the legend; and I love the small-town, quirky, charming feel. Ms. Hatler does a fantastic job of transporting the reader straight to the heart of the story, making them feel like an honorary character, and this one also delivered a healthy dose of humor. I can't wait for more!

Content: mild romance; mild moments of peril
