Falling in love is like swimming with sharks…
Sharona Blaire is only in Australia for a business audit, but she’s determined to make the most of her one free night. So when she spills her drink on a handsome stranger and they end up flirting, she does something completely out of character—she kisses him. But the prospect of taking it further totally freaks her out…almost as much as discovering the next morning that the man she’s auditing is the sexy, tanned stranger she left with zero explanation.
An audit during his crew’s most important expedition yet is a complication marine biologist Jeff Cruz doesn’t need—especially when the auditor is the gorgeous, fascinating woman from the night before. Out at sea with nowhere to run, he’s forced to admit Sharona draws him in like a shark to blood. But Jeff’s one passion is his job, and nothing—not even love—will get its hooks in him…
Sharona went to Australia for work, but on the way there she already catches the eye of a gorgeous guy named Jeff, when she accidentally spills the drink on him. That’s not the first nor last time it happens, on the second time they actually hit it off, but when things are about to get hot, she freaks out and leaves him waiting for her. The next morning, when she going to a auditing, Jeff and Sharona meet once again and that gives them the time to either work through their issues or end everything before it even started.
It’s a short and sweet romance. I liked the setting in the book, the warm and summery Australia seemed a good choice on a rainy autumn day. The characters were likeable and relatable, even though the story is short, which means there isn’t a lot of character development.
