I don't read a lot of romance because most of the time the writing is just not that compelling and I feel like throwing the book across the room about halfway through even if I like the characters. This book was the exact opposite. Not only was it a sweetly romantic story, but the writing was great. Just a good old fashion love story. The characters Cecelia and Kyle were both believable and interesting. I like the dark edge that the author gives Cecelia. And of course, Kyle is sexy and male and just wants to protect her, which is hot. I really enjoyed it. Perfect for beach reading!
