*Book was provided by author for honest review*
Emergency Room doctor, Lucy Grey, thinks she has it all figured out. She has a great job, a flat in London, and a boyfriend who loves her. But one night at the hospital changes everything.

On impulse, she runs away to Koh Tao, a small island off the coast of Thailand, hoping to figure out what to do with her life.

What she hasn’t bargained on is meeting dive instructor, Rudy. With big brown eyes, a lop-sided grin and a seriously sexy body, he instantly takes her breath away. He helps her escape into a new, underwater world, but, as they grow closer, Lucy is riddled with guilt.

Should she tell him about the boyfriend back home and her early mid-life crisis, or pretend to be someone she’s not? When a storm hits the island, Lucy has to make a decision.

But Rudy has secrets of his own and secrets drive people apart...


What I thought

This was a good story. It was engaging from the first page. It was a nice, light romance. The budding romance was fun to read. Lucy hadn't wanted to meet anyone, but sometimes you just can't help falling for someone on vacation.

Lucy's escape from London was interesting. We don't get to know right away what drove her away, but it was interesting to see it all unfold. She doesn't talk about her work much but ends up using her doctor skills to help out on her trip

The only thing I didn't care for was that Lucy had a boyfriend back in London. But that is a personal preference, it did make some scenes hard for me to get into but once I could put him out of my head, I was able to enjoy the rest of the story.

This sounds like a cute read! I think I could look past the boyfriend in London (and hopefully she broke up with him!) and enjoy the story otherwise. Sounds like a good summer read!

It was a good summer read! It did take me a bit to get around the boyfriend thing, but once I did I enjoyed it a lot.

A great read especially for anyone who has been to Thailand. The description and feel of the story is very evocative.

I hope to see it one day. I have family moving there soon so I can more reasons to visit!
