After some bad news, Ella jets off to sunny Bermuda for a bit of solo R&R...

By day six, surrounded by honeymoons and smug-marrieds, she has to admit the solo bit is getting a teeny bit boring! Why say no to a casual date at the bar with ripped, tanned and enigmatic Cooper Delaney?

It's really not Coop's style to flirt with tourists, let alone hook up with one again. But he can't get the sweet London girl out of his head. A business trip to Europe is the perfect chance to see her. Only he finds Ella curvier, prettier... and keeping a secret he was so not expecting...!

Who doesn’t like to go on a vacation to Bermuda. Sun, beach, a beautiful beach and most of all a lot of beach boys/men. But seeing all those happy couples walking hand in hand can put a damper on your perfect vacation. This is Ella’s story. Bermuda should have been the best vacation she’s ever had. But once there she realizes that it might have been the biggest mistake she has ever made in her life. That is until Cooper shows up in her life. He shows her what she has been missing her whole life. They have one wonderful day and night before Ella heads back to England. When Cooper sees her again after a couple of months he doesn’t know yet how their lives are about to change forever.

I really liked Ella and Cooper together. They might not have realized it at first but they make each other stronger. Ella wants him to be a part of her baby’s life and she will do everything to keep him in their lives in some sort of way. But at the same time she doesn’t allow him to start making all the demands. Cooper was very closed in the beginning, he had a difficult past and he still doesn’t like to talk about it. He had some pretty big issues, so I can see why he was so reluctant at first when it came to Ella and the baby. The biggest problem between Ella and Cooper was that they didn’t talk. Yes they talked about non-important things but they never asked one another how they felt about the whole situation. A lot of their issues could have been resolved earlier when they had communicated better with each other.  But in the end I loved them both. They needed each other to heel and they made each other a better person. A person they could never dreamed of being.

All in all I liked this book, it was cute and a lot of fun to read. But I missed the real connection between the characters. Yes there was a lot of chemistry between them from the start but I missed the part where I could see them fall in love with each other.
