If you’re looking for a super fun, quick summer read, look no further. Audrey is escaping a situation in Chicago that has her perpetually looking over her shoulder when she meets Jake, ex pro-surfer who agrees to take her on as a student. Inevitably, a relationship develops. It’s an adorable story, set in a gorgeous landscape (Maui). I do wish it were a full length instead of a novella to give the characters a little more time to develop but overall it was great. I’m looking forward to the next one with hopes that I’ll be able to dig my claws into the characters and storyline just a teensy bit more.

Sex, suspense, and surfing in one enticing tale of a woman who calls herself Audrey Logan.

I moved to a small town on the island of Maui, ready to live out my days on my own and far away from the monster I left back in Chicago.

It was the perfect reset until I needed something more. Someone more.

When I met Jake, the hottest guy in board shorts this side of the island, I started to live again. He’s teaching me how to surf, making my toes curl from pleasure, and is the one person I want to let into my world, with one condition…

He can never know my real name.

No one can.

Because if I’m found, the life I’m building with Jake will vanish.
