Acting out seduction scenes in movie costumes is a beautiful ex-cop’s path to healing & love.
Traumatized by a deadly underwater dive, police diver Catrina Turner abandoned her career and escaped to Muskoka, Canada’s upscale, private vacation destination favored by wealthy celebrities. She and her retired police dog Titan provide security services to safeguard empty luxury homes over the winter. Her PTSD is a tightly-held secret…until an affair with a visitor changes her life.
Hollywood screenwriter Chett de Groot needs a hit to save his career. He accepts a movie star’s offer to use her secluded lake house as a writing retreat, and discovers a closet full of her old movie costumes.
Lonely, freezing in Muskoka, and out of ideas, Chett entices the beautiful security guard to wear costumes and role-play in love scenes for inspiration. They discover how satisfying acting can be. Soon Catrina’s ad-libbing passionate lines in scorching “performances” that knock his thermal socks off.
Chett secretly writes Catrina’s terrifying dive into a spec script. Then a film producer makes Chett an offer he can’t refuse. But when Catrina finds out, will he lose her forever?
This curl-your-toes romance can be read as a stand-alone short novel. Love music? Enjoy the optional “soundtrack”—a YouTube playlist that reflects the characters’ emotional roller coaster ride to love.
I was completely immersed in this story from the get-go.
The characters were probably my favorite part. I really enjoyed each of their stories. I didn't feel like anyone was out of place or didn't fit.
The plot was smooth and I liked the way it flowed from chapter to chapter. The romance had a sweet build up. A quick and easy read and overall great Romance.
And might I add a gorgeous cover?
