A Fairy Tale for the Modern Age
For wealthy playboy, Evan Ashford, Hawaii is his playground in paradise. Everything comes easy for this charming bad boy, even the women, until he sets his sights on a fresh off the plane, smart-mouthed mainlander as his next vacation hookup.
Mallory Wray is escaping more than the cold of Colorado when she lands in Oahu for the summer. Leaving a cheating ex behind, she’s ready to cut loose and determined to have a good time in paradise. Throwing caution to the wind, she goes against her head and follows her heart… right into Evan Ashford’s bed.
When passion entangles the two together, an undeniable attraction causes fireworks to fly. With a past Evan wants to bury and a local rival vying for the girl he now wants, he will either let his past define him or decide to fight for his future.
Listening to his ego got him into this mess, but will listening to his heart get him out?
Our eyes meet and we spend a moment looking into the others’, reading the fear and the love that mingles within. I move slowly down and kiss her forehead, her nose, her eyelids, her cheeks, and her chin before I kiss her lips again—soft and gentle, not rushed, but sensual. She smiles and I die inside knowing that I won’t get to see her face every day. I’ve been spoiled by this sweet angel giving me all her days and nights. I possessively take hold of her wrists and like so many times before, the air stills as our connection intensifies. I can’t help myself when it comes to her.
I kiss her.
Rain pours down harder and I wrap my arms around her, engulfing her body, her love, her soul.
I have faith our love can overcome the obstacles that will undoubtedly arise from us choosing to be together, but I still worry… Will our good intentions be good enough?
Evan Ashford is sex personified. He makes me feel things I never have and crave things I’m not sure I should. Time doesn’t exist when we’re together—all of our worries becoming obsolete. Our tongues touch, and as if by memory, they move in harmony, feeling at peace, feeling at home.
Despite his mother’s best efforts to drive us apart and the miles that separate us, I’m ready—ready to claim what’s mine.
In an instant, his lips are pressed firmly against mine, consuming my words as if hearing them isn’t enough. Desire turns to need as he tastes and savors every syllable ever spoken from my heart to his.
Mallory Wray caught my attention and stole my heart. The emerald of her eyes draws me in, and it’s so easy to see why I fell in love with her. I run my hand over her cheek and into her hair, admiring everything I’ve missed so much. That familiar intensity that formed our bond back in Hawaii exists again. It’s comforting, engulfing, making my chest ache in the most painfully acute way. My heart feels grounded in her. This is right, this is us, I can finally breathe again.
Her hand settles on my cheek and a soft smile appears. “My sweet surfer. What a change a month makes.”
“It’s not the month that changed me. It’s the girl.” I turn and kiss her palm. “You make me want more than I feel I deserve.”
“You deserve everything your heart desires.”
“My heart only desires you.”
“Then I’m yours. All yours. Always.”
Life has taken these two young lovers in different directions. Can their love bring them back together? Will they be able to find their paradise once again?
