It thought it was a weekend from hell, until he showed me a little piece of heaven.

Spending the weekend at a four-star resort was supposed to be a getaway from my hectic life. Sure, I was still technically working, but at least I could enjoy the sand and surf while I was at it.

That was until a run of bad weather threatened both my vacation and my job.

My last hope was a surly boat captain named Gabriel Rossi who looked like an angel. If only he didn't have the temperament of a devil.

When the storm leaves us stranded until morning, it could only mean disaster...or desire.

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


My Review

“It’s funny how you don’t realize a part of your life is missing until a beautiful woman strands and blindsides you with her perky smile and sweet perfume.”

Anchor, by Author Nicole Blanchard, is a quick and saucy read that takes us on a vacation and work adventure with Gabriel (Gabe) Rossi and Chloe McKinney as they pass from one environmental storm into a sexy storm that leads to a possible calm in their lives that they didn’t know they were missing.

“…do us both a favor and take your train wreck somewhere else.”

If Anchor were a fairytale it would be called “The Princess and the Douchebag”.  But, that’s only an initial glance of these lovable characters.  There’s a point reached in the story that makes us realize the actual fairytale would more likely be “Beauty and the Beast”, with a large side of fire and heat. 

“What’s a princess without her glass slipper.”

Within the first few pages I connected with Chloe. She was accident prone at the worst times, which I can definitely identify with. Gabriel had no time for a girl like Chloe.  He needed to tend to what seemed most important. Their short time together left me wanting more and more. The dual points of view were perfectly written for this story. It wasn’t like a retelling from one person to the next, but rather an expounding upon and telling from different personalities that added more depth to the story.  I arrived at one point in the book with a particular happening that totally took me by surprise and wanted to scream “I love you, Nicole Blanchard!!!”  It was so wonderfully written. I look forward to the next book in this series and more from this author.

“I was perfectly content to go on living my life as I had been. And then you blew into my life, literally, and changed all my plans.”
