An empty bed and breakfast
A summer storm
One night they'll never forget - so they thought...
When my aunt passed away and left me her dilapidated bed and breakfast it was all so surreal. I hadn't been back to that beach in many years, and the idea of revisiting left me sad and vulnerable. I never planned on having guests. In fact, I just wanted to close up the place and sell it, so that I could move on with my life.
Then the storm happened. Taken by surprise, I planned
on waiting for it to pass. The house creaked and the power went out. That's when someone knocked on the door.
He was a stranger, dripping couldn't turn him away...
What happened next between us opened new doors, changing everything I thought I wanted for myself.
The only question is if I can trust him, or will his secrets destroy it all?
Erica drew me into the story from the very beginning. Her aunt left her the beach B&B where she spent several summers as a child. Her intention was to sell it, but I hoped she would change her mind. For some reason, it just seemed like the right place for her to be. Somehow the business world didn't seem to be a good fit for her.
Shawn is a kind ex-marine who has fallen on hard times. He's no longer in the military and needs to find his niche in life now. He and Erica hit it off from the beginning. What started out as an innocent encounter quickly turns hot and heavy.
I loved getting stories from both POV's. The first half of the story, "The Storm" is told from Erica's POV. In that part, you get the beginning and development of their relationship. The in "The Hurricane", the second half, you get Shawn's history told from his point of view. His part was harder to read, more heart-wrenching but I loved every word. I wasn't expected the major plot twist at all.
I highly recommend one-clicking this amazing read today.
