Bayside Books

When Quinn Rockwell left Rockwell Island a decade ago to build a shipping empire, he never thought he’d return to live on Cape Cod Bay—that is, until his grandfather summons Quinn and his four siblings to take over the prestigious Rockwell Resort. Quinn is already working fifteen-hour days, and the last thing he has time for is his grandfather’s demands. But on his first night back, when Quinn finds a gorgeous and carefree woman skinny-dipping in his favorite cove, he’s tempted to ignore his work for a while…and focus on her instead.

As a free spirit who follows her heart and her dreams, Shelley Walters is not the kind of girl to wait around for Mr. Right, so she heads to Rockwell Island for the honeymoon of her dreams—a solo honeymoon. Ready for a week of sun and fun, she never expected to meet a man like Quinn Rockwell.

Wealthy and intensely driven, Quinn is everything Shelley swore she didn’t want. Refreshingly spontaneous and a true romantic, Shelley is everything Quinn never knew he needed. Drawn together despite their differences, during a week of sizzling-hot passion and deep conversations, they fall head over heels for each other. But when their perfect week on the island is over, will their love survive in the real world?

This was such a light, sweet and romantic story! Just a wee bit insta-love but if you don't mind that sort of thing then I would definitely recommend it. Great choice for a beach read when you're in the mood for something that has a feel good ending.
Quinn and Shelley were such a good fit for each other. Quinn is a workaholic and Shelley is a free spirit. Together they each help the other find balance and of course... love! Their attraction for each other is not just physical, they just simply enjoy each others company and I love how they spent their time together doing simple things. It was a great way for them to connect.
Shelley came to the island for a solo Honeymoon experience. A little strange yes, but I thought it was an interesting spur of the moment thing for her to do. And, as it turns out, going solo was a great idea because it led her to Quinn.
Quinn was summoned back to the island that he grew up on because his scheming grandfather has plans for them to take over the family business of running the island.
Despite his resistance, he finds that being back on the island and meeting Shelley was a sort of wake up call that his workaholic tendencies may be keeping him from finding true happiness.
I love how this book revolves around the importance of family and that sometimes the simple things in life can bring you more happiness than a loaded bank account. Things like taking walks on the beach, playing in the sand, splashing around in the ocean... who wouldn't want to spend every day doing that?? Cape Cod was peaceful and relaxing, a perfect setting for a blooming romance.
This is the first of the series and it set the stage nicely for future installments.
