SOME PEOPLE WADE INTO LOVE. OTHERS UNEXPECTEDLY FALL IN THE DEEP END.
My life seems to be running me, and not the other way around. That’s why I’ve taken a leave from work and come to this small island to try and “find myself” for the first time since . . . well, ever.
Unfortunately, ever since I got here, my life has become a series of humiliating events that all seem to center around my flirtatious new neighbor, Deacon King.
I need to stop running into him before I embarrass myself even more, and he needs to stop flashing me his bright smile, ocean-blue eyes, and perfectly sculpted abs. And he also needs to start remembering that he’s married with a kid, or he is going to find out just how much trouble I can be.
I feel like my new neighbor is going to be a lot of trouble. Sam Turner is one of the most unexpected hurricanes to ever blow onto this island. She can’t catch a break whenever she’s around me and ends up in the most uncomfortable situations . . . for her. Personally, I find it adorable.
I can tell she’s trying to avoid me, but a tug in the middle of my chest keeps pulling me to find ways to be with her—even though it’s the last thing I should do.
She seems a little bit of crazy and a whole lot of complicated, but my heart doesn’t seem to care.
And for some reason, she thinks I’m married.
