A dream job, two handsome men, one destructive act. Will Freya’s opportunity of a lifetime end in tears?
When Freya leaves her publishing job in London to be a barefoot bookseller in the Maldives, it’s the push she needs to move on from her sadness and reignite her passion for life.
While resort owner Zander is charming, it’s handsome dive instructor Aaron who befriends her when she needs it most. But all is not what it seems and there’s trouble brewing in paradise.
Taking a chance on happiness is harder than she imagined. Can Freya let go of her heartache and allow herself to fall in love again?
Sun. Sand. Book in hand. This book was truly the perfect escape! What more could a book loving, beach loving girl want then a barefoot book shop in the middle of a tropical paradise? I am seriously ready to pack my bags and head to the Maldives! Freya is in need of a change of scenery after going through some dark moments in her life. When she sees an ad for the opportunity to run a barefoot book shop in paradise she is excited, but a little apprehensive. Her energetic personality and experience as an editor makes her the perfect candidate and she is selected from over 20,000 other applicants for the job. When she gets to the Maldives she is instantly in love with the Islands beauty, and charmed buy a couple gorgeous men. When reading the blurb to this book I was hesitant because I’m not always a huge fan of a love triangle. However, this was a love triangle done well. Freya was a very likable sympathetic character. I completely related to her love for Books and this gorgeous setting. I also felt for her and what she’s been through. I was very happy with the direction the book took and pleased with her choice for love. This is the perfect summer read, a little vacay in a book.
