NOTICE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Samantha is celebrating her newly retired status from competitive triathlons with a diving holiday in her favourite place in the world: Australia’s Lord Howe Island. But all divers need a buddy, and Sam can’t dive solo. A chance meeting with rugby league superstar Cooper Sterling in the dive shop seems serendipitous. Sam can’t wait to have a partner who might be able to keep up with her.
It soon becomes evident that Cooper and Sam are compatible both in and out of the water, and things gets seriously sexy. But Sam is disinclined to be another football groupie, and Cooper has been burned before. So the rules are clear: a holiday fling, no strings attached, and they part as friends at the end.
But as the final days of their time together come to a close and a life apart becomes a reality, Sam and Cooper start to question their decision. Is this holiday fling really the finish line or can Sam and Cooper turn their friendly competition into more than sizzling sex?
I honestly can't rate this book, because I couldn't get past the beginning. I thought this was going to be a hot, quick read, but nothing in the writing sucked me in. The writing suggested that Samantha was this hot, sexy woman, but I thought all the writhing around and excessive flirting she was doing would've turned off anyone. Cooper didn't seem all that interested either. I'll let you decide . . . Maybe it's just me . . .
