Toni Westmore doesn’t do relationships. She has a demanding boss at her high end Soho art gallery job and an even more difficult and critical mother – who needs the mess of a relationship?
Enter Irish Doctor Gavin McKinnon, her friend’s brother, also known as the perfect summer fling: tall, muscled, smart, funny, definitely ready for a good time and stamped with an expiration date. He’ll go back to Ireland and his family medical practice in a few weeks and she’ll return to her real world and plan her next career move.
Gavin’s in town not only to visit his sister, but to try and heal his broken heart. He gets a little help when Toni, his sister’s friend and roommate, enters the picture. Inexplicably drawn to her, Gavin tries to remind himself to look but not touch, but Toni is hard to resist… and when she offers him a no strings fling, how could he say no?
But as Gavin’s departure date looms, Toni realizes that her sexy summer fling is anything but. And she was sure she could kiss Gavin goodbye with no regrets…
Will she attempt to break their no strings rule? Or will Gavin leave Long Island without looking back?
Oh, if this isn't the summer romance story!! It is so sweet, tender, adorable, passionate, hot, sizzling, and frail. Cause they live on the opposite sides of the ocean, and they only have four weeks of this perfect, delicious romance.
It was supposed to be only a fling. But the connection, chemistry and bond between Gavin and Toni is so real, solid, and unique, their feelings soon come into the play, and things don't go so smoothly after that. Cause the end of the summer is coming fast, and they are running out of time.
Gavin has issues with trust, trusting Toni's feelings, cause in the past relationship, he was left behind after four years. Now he only has four weeks to convince Toni, that he is serious, and willing to do anything and everything to make their relationship to work.
Toni was emotionally abused in her previous relationship, and just scared of all the intense feelings Gavin is bringing out of her. She is not sure about a thing in her life right now, everything seems to be spiraling out of control.
And the departure is agonizing, Toni has so much to figure out, big changes she needs to make in her life, she needs to find her courage, belief in herself, and take a leap of faith.
This is a story that made me smile, and later brought tears in my eyes. I loved the characters, adored them! Toni and Gavin are so perfect together, perfect for each other, with all their faults and all.
