My Review: CARIBBEAN CROSSROADS by Connie Sokol
New college grad Megan McCormick just got dumped. Hard.
Swearing off men and relationships, Megan is coaxed into performing on a cruise ship where she meets the star performer, Bryant Johnson. Handsome and charismatic, he looks like trouble, but she can't deny the intense attraction between them.
Urged to find a wife and run the family lumber business, Bryant is torn between his family's expectations for his life and his own. However, when he meets spunky, but love-skittish Megan McCormick, settling down doesn't look so bad.
Just when Megan begins to trust again, and Bryant makes some big decisions regarding his future, her former fiance returns with a malicious surprise, taking Megan and Bryant to their own CARIBBEAN CROSSROADS.
In short, a delightful summer romance. I had so much fun reading about Meg and Bry's adventures aboard ship and beyond that I had a hard time putting the book down when it was all over. I understood Meg's hesitancy to jump into another relationship, but Bryant was such an awesome guy I had to cheer for him--and sometimes yell at her for being so obstinate. And, boy, when Meg's ex makes his appearance for Thanksgiving *I* wanted to slug him. What a slimeball.
If you're looking for a fun summery read I'd check out Caribbean Crossroads. Here's Amazon's links for the PAPERBACK or KINDLE versions.
