He’s been benched and needs redemption. She’s the single mom of their child. He’s back in town to make amends.
Charlotte Nilsen never thought she’d see McCoy again after he hit the big time in the NFL. After all, she’s the one who insisted on an annulment after his scandal with the cheerleader.

She’s rebuilt her life now. Her one regret is she never told McCoy their brief marriage resulted in a son.

McCoy Armstrong has been benched. A shoulder injury will do that to an NFL quarterback. Enough time has passed that he dares to hope that his ex-wife Charlotte will forgive the follies of his youth. When he arrives home in Getaway Bay, he finds Charlotte living next door and his house destroyed by a storm.

No amount of money, even a billionaire’s entire bank account, can buy a spouse’s trust. He must find another way.

Is this injured quarterback strong enough to rebuild everything he has broken and reclaim everything he has lost?

Escape to Getaway Bay and join the Clean Billionaire Beach Club for some seriously sweet romance.

Each book can be read as a standalone, with a happily-ever-after ending, and clean, sweet-without-losing-the-heat romance!

My Review: 5 Stars

Hawaii...romance...a second chance. Yes! I love Jennifer Griffith's writing style. Her characters are funny, unique, and really come to life through her words. And this setting? I can totally visualize the tropical beaches, lava fields, swaying palm trees, and warm, salty air. I think I need a trip to Getaway Bay, ASAP. If only it was a real place...

Charlotte and McCoy have a tumultuous past, thanks in part to a trampy ex-cheerleader. They each have secrets and hurt, but they've also both clung to their hopes, dreams, and love, which gives them a good starting point to build their second chance on. 

I love the solid characters and the way they interact with each other, but most especially the undeniable undercurrent of attraction that sizzles between them. This is definitely a swoony romance and I'm excited to get myself immersed in Getaway Bay again soon.

PS I LOVE the alliteration in the titles of this series--how fun is that?!
