Series: Night Time Television
Genre: Romantic Comedy
The last person I expected to see on this tropical island is my ex. Although, since I never actually broke up with her, isn’t she technically still my girlfriend?
Yeah, I’ve got some explaining to do. And groveling. Probably some begging, too. Good thing we’re stuck at this resort together for the next three weeks.
Corrine Harper is the only girl I’ve ever wanted, and I won’t let her slip through my fingers again. They call me Aiden the unattainable. Consider me attained.
Aiden Legend’s, 21, happy life was turned upside-down when he lost his parents at eighteen. In the process of grieving, he also pushed away the girl he adored.
“‘The last time the world felt right was when I was with you.’”
But now that he’s got his life back on track and the girl he always wanted in his sights, he’s ready to make amends.
“‘I should know what you taste like. What turns you on. What you look like when you sleep. Where your most ticklish spot is, and how you like to be kissed. By now, I could’ve known your body better than I know my own.’”
Aiden’s a total sweetie and an all-round good guy. I flove that he didn’t whore around in the years he was grieving; he was just lonely and lost. And man does he always know how to say the right thing.
“‘I’d rather rack myself in the nuts than break her heart.’”
Corrie Harper, 21, has her quirks. Like I might have a phobia or two, but this girl made me feel totally normal. None the less, it lends the comedic elements to the tale.
Told via their dual alternating first person POV, the pair doesn’t waste any time making up for lost time or rising the temperatures on a tropical island with their hot and dirty encounters.
“‘Call me old fashioned, but I thought you coming on my cock was a pretty good sign for the future.’”
All in all, a sweet, safe, low angst second chance romance with a super epilogue. Theo and Hadley from Untrainable make appearances with Theo proving what an awesome big brother he can be. Still the story can be read as a standalone, though the other two in this series really are must reads.
“Why are you so hellbent on denying that we kissed?” he interrupted heatedly, splashing water to the side.
Some of the droplets sprayed my neck and chin, and I let out a gasp of outrage.
“Because!” It was my turn to slap the water, making sure some of it hit Aiden’s chest.
“Because why?” He splashed me again. Definitely on purpose this time. “Our lips touched. That’s a real kiss.”
Shoving my hands forward with all the force I could muster, I caused a wave to arc straight to Aiden’s face. I had to bite the inside of my cheek to hold in my smile when he sputtered and scrubbed his eyes.
“It was my first kiss,” I said, once he could see me again.
I wanted to scream that it was my only kiss, but that would’ve been giving him too much power. “It’s the one that’s supposed to be important and magical. The one that’s supposed to be longer than a millisecond. It’s not your fault that it didn’t last longer, but I feel cheated—”
Without warning, Aiden lunged forward. For a second, I thought he was starting the splash war again, but instead of water, I was assaulted by a slab of hard muscle.
Backing me against the wall, he smashed his lips to mine.
Surprised, I gasped as a lifetime of pent-up passion overflowed in the form of a hard press of his mouth.
Now this… this was a kiss.
