The most unlikely couple in Hollywood can’t keep their hands off each other!

Silver is a sultry actress with a horrific past that haunts her. Kolby is a sexy, carefree surf champion who lives for the sun, sand and sea. But when Silver’s best friend, a famous indie director-producer, unexpectedly throws them together in a steamy, unscripted scene for his erotic film, the sparks fly!

Kolby is the direct opposite of Silver’s rough, edgy leading men on and off screen. Yet they instantly sizzle together. He’s got a world title to win, but Kolby can’t escape the magnet-and-steel effect he and Silver share. Their hot-and-heavy romance comes with a price when Silver’s ex-lover stalks her. She’ll have to lay it all on the line for her happy ending.

As I sat and read this book, I was faced with the fact that sometimes we are the ones who resist happiness and seek the drama in our lives. We sometimes are driven to sabotage what we have out of fear or out of guilt for some act in our past, and we seek to punish ourselves.

The subject of domestic abuse is one that is hard to deal with. Reading about women being abused who stay with their partner our fear or lack of courage is particularly painful.

This book deals with the aftershocks … how our children are affected by abuse or mental health problems in their parents.
Two beautiful adults, at the height of their chosen profession (Silver is a movie star and Kolby a professional surfer), meet for the second time in their lives and cannot deny the attraction they always feel for each other. Through one of the sexiest scenes I have ever read, they must come to grips with this attraction.

Only the fear she feels of entangling this nice man into the complications and drama in her life makes Silver try to avoid getting any closer to Kolby. He on the other hand, is so smitten with her; he cannot keep himself in check. He must pursue her, but takes a slow burn approach to seducing her in order to win her trust and affection. This makes for a beautiful courtship and a hot love story — one I thoroughly enjoyed.
