Lainey Stratton does not fall in love with strangers she meets on vacation. It simply doesn’t make logical sense. So when Lainey meets Carter Thompson on the first day of her Caribbean vacation, she knows it could never amount to anything more than a crush. At the end of the vacation she will return to Dallas and he will return to D.C., and that will be the end of it. Well, unless he wants to join her at a friend’s destination wedding, which would be considered vacation too, right?

But when an unexpected tragedy sends Lainey’s logical world spiraling out of control, she realizes her vacation crush might be the only one who can help her pick up the pieces of her shattered life. That is, as long as she can get out of the way of her own happiness. And as long as Carter’s past doesn’t catch up with him before she gets a chance.

It's always a bit of a chance picking up a book by an author you don't know and haven't really heard anything about.  I do believe this is Rachel Magee's first book and if it isn't, it's MY first book by this author.  I was hopeful going in, but unsure.  Man, I am SO glad I joined in for this book tour because this book was fantastic.  It's more than just a sweet romance, it's a journey filled with emotion and growth.

The book starts out in a tropical paradise where two people meet.  All the initial feelings of attraction and butterflies were there.  It was a fun place to be.  Then we move to this middle part where Lainey and Carter navigate a new long distance friendship/relationship.  They are both a bit unsure and aware that distance is hard when cultivating the newness of a relationship.  Carter is solid though, where Lainey is hesitant.  He is honestly the rock star of this book in every way.  I LOVED him.

The last part of the book is filled with emotion that yanked my poor heart out.  I was fully invested in the lives of these characters.  Their journey wasn't easy, but it was satisfying.  I loved my time spent with this book.  I'll be watching for more from Rachel Magee!  She is now on my radar.  :) 

About the Author

Rachel Magee wrote her first novel when she was twelve and entered it into a contest for young author/illustrators. Unfortunately, the judges weren’t impressed with her stick figures. So she dropped the dream of becoming a world famous illustrator and stuck to spinning stories. When she’s not busy working on her latest book, she loves to travel with her family and friends. By far, her favorite destination is the beach, which tends to work its way into most of her stories. Between vacations, you can find her at home in The Woodlands, TX with her wonderful husband, their two adventurous kids and a couple of spirited pets, all of whom share Rachel’s love of the ocean. Well, except the cat and dog. They’re both afraid of water. Find out more about what Rachel has been up to at rachelmageebooks.com.
