What can I say I wasn't sure what to expect and wow was I pleasantly surprised.

This book had me crying and laughing, how Beverly writes about Tess and Tom is very well done. It's full of emotion, cracking scenery and eloquently written all the way through.

Definitely worth checking out if you like a good romance, it's definitely worth it's 5 stars.

Tess has spent the last 12 months grieving for her husband after he unexpectedly died from a heart attack. They'd married young, been together 25 years and had 3 children. She decides to return to Bora Bora where they'd spent a lot of idylic holidays and release his ashes. Tom escapes to Bora Bora from the media circus of his showbiz world as an actor. Two very different people yet they connect from their very first meeting despite the fact that Tom arrived on the island with a date. This book covers their sizzling sexual attraction but it's deeper than that as they get to know each other. When they leave the island the press hound them as Tess is older than his typical dates but his friends help out as they're determined to not let her fall foul of the stunts women will pull to bag an actor, even if it's just for the night. A photo of Tom and a woman that isn't Tess causes him problems with her protective children as well as with Tess. While some of the book was predictable a lot of it wasn't and it was nice to read a book from the romance category that had some depth to the storyline and characters.

Wonderfully romantic and exquisitely hot! If a romantic, erotic getaway, filled with wonderful worldly places, sounds like your idea of a dream come true, you'll want to pick up this book and find a relaxing couch or sun bed for an unforgettable and enjoyable read.

At the outset, the reader is introduced to independent minded - Tess Matthews, as she sets out to close a very sad chapter in her life. Tess travels to Bora Bora, to say her last private goodbye to her recently deceased husband Richard, by scattering his ashes in one of their favourite places. Tess is heart-broken and her heart and body ache and long for the touch of Richard, as she recalls the happy times and marriage they had enjoyed together, before he was unexpectedly taken from her and her charming children.

While trying to makes the arrangements for Richard's last journey on her arrival in Bora Bora. Tess spots "Hollywood Hottie" and famed lethario, actor - Tom Clemmins in the reception of the resort. Unbeknown to Tess, this chisel-chested Hollywood hunk would be accompanying her on the boat trip to say goodbye to Richard. At first, furious, angry and feeling her private space had been invaded by the alleged lethario. Tess finds herself falling for the charms and soft touch of this sexy hunk. She tries to ignore the surprising sexual chemistry between them, but Tom appears determined to gain her love. Unable to resist the physical pull between them, Tess and Tom let down their smouldering protective guards and engage in a hot, steamy and sensual love affair. Tess senses Tom's apparent reluctance and resistance to commitment, and expects nothing more then a holiday affair. Yet, the longer they spend together; the more they seem drawn together to the point where separation appears almost impossible.

What a lovely story. Tess is happily married for many years until the worst thing happens. She's widowed. Struggling to come to terms with her loss, she travels to Bora, Bora, a place where she'd spent many happy holidays with her late husband. Her plan is to scatter his ashes in the ocean at a favourite chosen spot. What happens next is beyond her wildest dreams and I've no intentions of spoiling it for anybody. You'll have to get your own copy and enjoy the journey with Tess. Beverley Preston tells this tale in a heartwarming way. I was pulled in from the first page and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. The scenic descriptions had me right there with the totally believable characters. Tom was easy to fall in love with as I know Tess did from the start. That instant love takes them on an emotional and very passionate roller-coaster ride to a very fitting climax if you'll pardon the pun! Thanks for a fab story, Beverley. Will look forward to reading more.

I have now read this book twice and it still has the power to transfer me to a wonderful place of happiness with a scattering of contented sighs as I flip through the kindle pages.

The first time I read it was back in 2012 when it was first released and my initial thought was how lovely to find a book that is not all about the young but this is about a woman who has gone through that first flush of youth, first love, happy marriage and children. But also a woman who has learnt to cope with loss, bereavement and utter desolation.

Tess Matthews is returning to Bora Bora, a place that held special memories for her, where she and her husband spent such happy times. It is here she finds herself again, a year after his death, to scatter his ashes and where she first sets eyes on the famous movie star, Tom Clemmins.

Tom is at the peak of his career, he has worked his way to the top with little or no time for a personal life. That's when he decides to take a long deserved break, which brings him to Bora Bora and he meets the entrancing Tess on a boat trip.

The book is all about their developing romance with all the trials and tribulations that brings. As in all good love stories there are outside influences that are a threat to the couple and trying to break them apart. This is not helped by their vast differences - Tessa with her `normal' life with her three grown up kids and Tom with his fame and fortune and all that brings with it, especially the press.

I really loved getting lost in this book (both times!) and I instantly fell for Mr Clemmins. He was so badly portrayed in the press as a player and was constantly having his picture snapped all over the globe with a bevy of beauties on his arm.
