Title: Holiday Affair
Author: Annie Seaton
Genre: Romance, Beach Read
Unadventurous Lissy McIntyre believes choosing the right man should be based on common sense. She would never pick a rolling stone like Nick Richards for long-term love. But a red-hot, tropical romance? Yes, please. He’s got a swoon-worthy body and his kisses leave her senseless. A tropical holiday romance might be what she needs…
When Nick moves to his new job in a small country town, he’s stunned to discover that his no-nonsense neighbor and co-worker is the beautiful woman he spent a memorable night with on a tropical island. He’s unaccustomed to staying in one place for long, but he just can’t seem to stay away from the intriguing woman. Nick doesn’t do forever but having Lissy around has him thinking maybe he could…
This book was not to my taste. I will admit that. There was nothing strictly wrong with the writing but as someone who has been reading in the genre for a while there were certain aspects of the book that were quite predictable, though I won’t name those here as I do not believe in spoilers.
Lissy as a character, and if she were a real person, would not be someone that I like at all. There is a sense of manipulation about her as she plays games with Nick and he does the same in turn. She is many different people all at once, hiding behind masks and using her mother’s relationships as a reason to keep behaving the way she does.
The secondary characters were interesting, especially Tomas, who I would’ve liked to learn a bit more about.
All in all this is a quick read, a quick romance and good for those that like something other than slowburn. I would’ve preferred a more in depth look at their work lives as it was quite quickly explored.
