He’s smiling down at me with tears in his eyes as I say my solemn vow:
‘I, Laura, take thee, Matthew, to be my lawful wedded husband…’ I thought I would never feel like this about anyone ever again. Not after my first love… Not after the heartbreak and the loss and the trying to pick myself back up again… Then I met Matthew, and I know that he has my heart forever: my perfect, gorgeous, adoring Matthew. And then I wake up. And I remember that he’s not perfect. He’s so far from perfect that my heart could surely collapse from the pain that instantly engulfs me…
To say Laura is unlucky in love is an understatement. Her first boyfriend died in a horrific accident, and now she’s just discovered that her husband of six months has been hiding a terrible secret. Devastated and unwilling to face reality, she escapes on a girls’ holiday to Key West with her best friend Marty. But a deep and instant attraction to a sexy Cuban scuba diver takes her completely by surprise. When her two weeks in the sun come to an end, Laura doesn’t want to go home again. But she can’t run from real life forever. Can she?

My Thoughts:
Oh wow. What a great book. I love Paige’s books and I think that this just beat Lucy in the Sky as my favourite Paige Toon book. As with all of Paige’s books I was hooked instantly. I don’t know how she does that but, I love it. The location well, it’s just heavenly. The sun, the sand and then the men. Oh the men and by men I really mean man. Leo. That man is hot, sexy and troubled. A chiselled jaw, dark eyes, dark eyebrows, olive skin and short black hair. Did I mention hot and sexy? Sorry I’m a little bit in love.  Lets talk about Laura. Laura was first introduced in Chasing Daisy. Here she was portrayed as a perfect socialite and quite honestly I didn’t like her. At all. However after one or two pages of this book I completely changed my mind. This book had a little bit of everything; laughter, sadness, sun, sand, love and heartbreak. There was such a shocking twist in this book. I did not see it coming. I loved the ending of this book and I really really hope Paige brings these characters back for a squeal.
