Genres: Contemporary Romance

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

He’s British.
She’s American.
They meet on vacation.
And agree to fake name each other.
One is lying about everything.
The other is telling the truth.
They’re about to embark on a sexcation.
But what happens when it’s over?


I loved this fun filled holiday romp! It’s a light-hearted read that moves at a fast pace and has just enough heat to make you believe you’re on a Caribbean island.Story recently broke up with her boyfriend and decides to go on a well-deserved vacation, to Bermuda, by herself. While checking into the hotel she notices a handsome man in the lobby. Guess who’s assigned the adjoining room next to her? Yep, the handsome stranger! Oh, did I mention that handsome and sexy stranger has a British accent?When he’s accosted at the pool, and almost molested, by three man hungry ladies, he sees Jade and makes his way to her, pretending she’s his wife. She agrees to go along with him, lying about being married, only after making up some rules first. Rule number one, they pretend to be someone else. They can’t tell each other who they really are, what they do, where they’re from and not get emotionally involved. So she tells him her name is Jade and he says his name is Jackson. They decide to throw sex into the mix, too. Sex and vacation!

“The definition of sexcation: when you go on vacation and have copious amounts of sex with strangers. Jackson isn’t a stranger and I can’t quantify what copious means. I’m not intending on having sex with anyone else while I’m here.”

 After spending a week in paradise, and sharing a truth about each other every day (another rule) they head home, where ever that might be, not knowing anything about each other. And maybe a little broken hearted. So much for rules!

Fate has other plans for Jade, whose real name is Story, and Jackson (he didn’t lie about his real name). They actually question whether they would’ve met in NYC had they not met in Bermuda. It seems like they were destined to meet, either way.

Story, I’ve never told you how much I love your name. Even though Jade was exotic and perfect for our vacation, Story means everything, and as far as I’m concerned, ours isn’t anywhere near finished.”

I laugh and find myself tempted by her hand, which sits on the metal table. After our impromptu snogging session, Jade put on a nice little sundress which has my imagination running wild and some strappy sandals. Her toes are painted a turquoise blue. I found it a little weird at first; normally I see reds or pinks on toes, but rarely a blue colour. I quite like it. I like it a lot. In fact, I’ve yet to find something about this woman I don’t like. 
“And yet, you didn’t. I came over and kissed you. You could’ve punched me, kicked me in the nuts, or groped me. I’m grateful you let me kiss you the way I did.”
She blushes again. “Why did you? I’m sure there are other, more beautiful women at the resort that would’ve been happy to oblige you.”
“But then I wouldn’t be here with my pretend wife, trying to get to know more about her.”
Her eyes don’t waver from mine as she takes a sip of her cocktail. “Do you really want to get to know me?”
“The fake you, yes. I don’t want to get cornered by one of the triplets and not know my facts.”
“Are they in fact, triplets?”
I shake my head. “I haven’t got a bloody clue, to be honest with you. Fake tits all look the same at the end of the day.”
Her mouth falls open into a sexy little O and images of other ways I can make that happen pop straight into mind. “I named them Muffy, Tuffy, and Buffy. The names seemed fitting,” she says with a shrug. 
I crack the fuck up. “Then that is what we’ll call them until they leave.”

“Do you know when that is? Or what room they’re in?”
I lean over the table and pick her hand up. “They leave after us, and no, I don’t, thank goodness. I don’t care either. I made you a promise and I always keep my promises.” I bring her hand to my lips and let them linger against her skin until a passer-by makes a comment about us being in love. 

Not love, lust though, and I couldn’t be happier that I chose her to be my distraction this week. When I finally let go of her hand, she picks up her drink and finishes it. 


“Want another one?” I ask, already standing by the time she nods. I lean down and kiss the top of her head, inhaling the scent of her shampoo. The smell of grapefruit assaults my senses, making my heart race. I groan as I walk into the restaurant. I could’ve easily waited for the waitress to come back to us, but I needed to step away from Jade for a minute. She’s fucking deadly with her innocent façade and I have a strong reason to believe I’m going to fall victim to her and love every minute of it. 
When I walk out, there’s a bloke talking to her as if it’s an everyday occurrence. I have never been jealous of any man until now. The pure rage I feel, watching him talk to my pretend wife almost takes over my body, yet I find the will to let it go. Who am I to stand in the way of her potential hook-ups?
