Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 17, 2017
Logan Marsh never stays in one place for long. Through his family’s foundation, Logan spends his days traveling to the world’s most dangerous places to deliver disaster relief, which really puts a damper on his sex life—until he reconnects with his high-school crush. Stranded together in the Caribbean, they enjoy a steamy fling that awakens feelings Logan has ignored for too long. But family drama calls him away from her sweet embrace . . . or so he thinks.
Brooke Gallagher loved being a home economics teacher and cheerleading coach. Then an unexpected tragedy forced her to take some time off. Now she’s back in D.C. and despite the intensity of her tropical encounter with Logan, she’s shocked to bump into him again. Logan’s dealing with his own issues (including a newly discovered half-sister) and he’s itching to get back on the road. More than anything, Brooke wants to be there for him. But first, he has to decide if love is enough to keep him in one place.
I've been reading these from the beginning and while they probably stand alone okay, the characters are so interconnected that I recommend starting from book one. I think this one is my favorite so far. We finally get to meet Logan! He is pretty fantastic. He's rushing home to meet the sister he didn't know about when he runs into Brooke, his old high school crush. Things get steamy and then he's off. But they bump into each other again and again and it is super sweet. He's always off to different parts of the world saving people so he doesn't think he can be in a relationship when he'll just have to leave again. Brooke understands. But they have a hard time keeping things light. I just really enjoyed this one.
A love of romance then drew her to wedding planning. Ultimately she succumbed to her lifelong love of books and now writes award-winning contemporary romance, including the Naked Men and Aisle Bound series. Christi can always be found whipping up gourmet meals (for fun, honest!) or with her nose in a book. She lives in Maryland with the best husband in the world.
