Daisy Adler has a family motto—never give up. With a broken engagement behind her, and dreams of branching out to start her own PR company, she knows this latest PR campaign must be her best yet. She’s prepared for everything, except a scintillating encounter on the beach with her client, Hart Rochester.

Hart Rochester is determined to fix the failing hotel chain left to him by his Pa—the one man who stood by him even if he continued to push him away. Hart grew up in the foster system until his Pa discovered his existence, yet the damage had already been done. Hart is closed off to any form of emotional connection, but Daisy sees something in him no one else ever has.

Their attraction is immediate, and neither can ignore it. Working together on a PR campaign for the picturesque Gem Island brings these two up close and personal. They agree to a no-strings-attached affair, yet both continue to open up to the other, sharing personal information and connecting on an emotional level. Definitely not part of their original plan.

The author had me wanting to book flights to the Whitsundays—the descriptions within the book were wonderful and really helped deliver a sizzling sexy read. I loved Daisy, she was bright and witty and gave as good as she got. I loved how she challenged Hart at every opportunity and had an admirable inner strength. Hart was surprisingly vulnerable, and it was a nice change to see him on the back foot towards the end of this novel. Compromise was reached by both and I feel the author did an excellent job of keeping the reader guessing until the nth minute as to whether these two would sort out their differences.

The banter between these two was fun and had me chuckling out loud a few times. It delivered on all the Dare promises and I look forward to reading more by this author.
