After losing her husband to a sudden heart attack, Tess Mathews escapes to Bora Bora to lay her husband and sorrow to rest. What she doesn’t expect is a new beginning. Tom Clemmins is an A-list actor whose life revolves around work and an onslaught of women. He travels to Bora Bora for a much-needed break. Tom has a few ideas of how he’ll enjoy his vacation, but love isn’t one of them. Until he sees Tess. Reserving a private shark-feeding excursion to scatter her husband’s ashes into the lagoon, Tess is furious when Mr. Hollywood bribes his way onto the boat, leaving her no other choice but to share the boat ride. Tess is torn between tremendous guilt and zealous lust when their boat ride turns into a week full of romance and desire neither thought imaginable. Utterly smitten with a woman for the first time in his life, Tom casts his commitment phobia aside and whisks Tess off to Malibu where he introduces her as his “girlfriend” on the red carpet. As the paparazzi besiege, can Tess survive the media blitz that ensues in order to find her second chance at love?
My Thoughts <3:
No More Wasted Time has been on my kindle for what feels like forever! I finally decided to step away for signing up for so many tours, and read something that I have been wanting to read for a while!
I have throughly enjoyed this book. I loved the story line, even though at times I felt it was slow paced or more like I should be further in the book than what my % showed.
I loved that the characters were mature adults that were established in who they were and what they wanted. I love that they took a risk on each other in Bora Bora. I honestly think one of my favorite parts of the book is about half way through the book… when Tom surprises Tess with an extended vacation… I thought it was super cute how he took the time to make sure her girls knew she was ok! I also loved how Tom always put Tess first… in everything, it is a great story about a mature relationship… & how love should be! Finding your soul mate, and being together forever! It’s like a an adult happily ever after!
I really enjoyed this book, and am glad it is now off my TBR list! If you want a read that is about mature adults, but still hot and steamy… this is your read 🙂
