Some people just need a good "thunk" to the head to put them on the right path. Luckily for Andrew, there's Tasha. Luckily for Tasha, there's Andrew. While they are, unfortunately, stereotypical of romance characters, they are quite fortunate in that their actions are governed by the twisting and turning of author Maddie James' imagination.
The tropical location and bus strike provided the basis for the eccentric quirks of fate that led Andrew to Tasha. True, his character's paranoia and suspicion also played into the plot quite a bit, but that just kept things interesting.
Meanwhile, Tasha has those overwhelming urges. You know the ones - mother instinct to protect and help the poor introverted man to "blossom", all the while fighting off the not so maternal sexual attraction that no good romance is without.
This is not the story of a grand romance. It is, however, a fun and lively story that can fulfill those moments when you need something lighthearted to read. (Well, if making a vehicle go off the side of a cliff can be termed "lighthearted".) You can tell the author has a vivid imagination and a unique sense of humor. These qualities kept the story from being run-of-the-mill and trite. They are also what kept me reading.
Grab a copy of the story and keep it on your e-reader for those times when you "just need something . . . " You won't be sorry you did.
