Author: Alice Ward
Website: The Playboy
Goodreads: The Playboy

Blurb: Hot tropical nights. One hot girl next door. What could go wrong?

Blowing in like an ocean breeze, she takes my breath away with just a look. Something inside me stirs, not just my legendary member.

Thing is… she appears to be immune to my charms. Sloane Anderson is mysterious. Different. And she’s hiding something. I’m not sure what, but I sure as hell intend to find out.

The more I discover about her, the more intrigued I become. In only a few days, we are inseparable. Then our perfect world is shattered when I discover her lies. How deep are they? And is she even who she says she is? Before I can find out, she leaves without even saying goodbye.

But I love her and vow to find her.

The problem is… how can you find someone you don’t even know? 

 

There are those books, that give you a very good idea what to expect with the cover and the blurb. They are not so complicated, easy reads if you just want to turn your brain off and not think about anything.

This book is one of them. Short, fun but nothing special.

We have our notorious playboy in a tropical island setting with two women, then he sees his new neighbor and instantly wants to get her. So he desperately wants to prove to her he is not as bad as she assumed from first glance. I have to say, he was very cute, easy to fall in love with and surprisingly smart.

Our heroine was holding many secrets from him, but with a good reason. I have to say, for me, this part of the story was a little bit too… unrealistic. I wanted to love the story and the base was not bad, but it was just not working with this added element. I will not write spoilers though, do not worry.

The characters felt a little empty, the story lacking, so the whole book was somewhat shallow. They were cute, it was a fun thing to read, but not something I will remember forever. It just was not that gripping story.

Alice Ward is a USA Today bestselling author whose books consistently break into the top 100 on Amazon. Two of her books were top 10 Amazon bestsellers, one of which reached an all-time high of #4. She’s an amazingly prolific writer, releasing a new book almost every single month. Her books are widely read, especially by women and any other lovers of the romance genre. My Stepbrother, My Lover, was her first smash hit.

Alice has been in love with love since she was a little girl. She had quite the collection of Barbie dolls growing up and spent much of her playtime crafting the perfect Barbie wedding day (and when she wasn’t doing that, she was working on attempting the perfect cartwheel).

When Alice outgrew Barbie dolls, she began to write her thoughts down in her diary. This was how she discovered that she had a knack for telling romantic stories. Her first fans were her close girlfriends, and her stories were a hit among them. They, along with her family, enthusiastically encouraged her love for writing.

Alice now lives in Miami with her wonderful, hunky husband. The beach is her all-time favorite place to relax with her laptop and write. When she needs a break from writing (and when no one’s looking) she loves thumbing through celebrity gossip magazines. It’s her guilty pleasure. She also might or might not have a thing for Gerard Butler (it’s the accent).
