The heroine: Amalie (a.k.a. Ami) – on her wedding day, at the reception, her new husband Armstrong is heard over the PA system in the reception hall cheating on her with one of the guests. Ami runs off on the to Bora Bora, bringing along her husbands passport so he won’t be able to follow her.
The Hero(es): Lexington (a.k.a. Lex) – cousin to Ami’s new husband Armstrong. His date to the wedding is the one that was caught with Armstrong, while Lex was hiding from her inane chatter in the bridal suite and getting drunk because the girl he really wanted was the bride.
The story: In her utter despair and embarrassment after hearing Armstrong getting busy on the PA system, Ami runs to the bridal suite at the reception hall to get out of the $15,000.00 wedding gown that she never wanted, but Armstrong talked her into getting. She sees Lex and asks him to help her get some revenge, which he turns down. Only to end up sitting next to him on her flight to Bora Bora.
I just love Helena Hunting’s sense of humor! This book was funny, steamy, romantic, crazy and an all around enjoyable book. As for the narration, both Jacob Morgan and Muffy Newtown were perfect for the parts of Lex and Ami. I loved that this book was told in Dual POV and the narrators were perfect for the blend of humor, angst and scorching heat.
Both characters were incredibly likable and the supporting characters were great. Armstrong was both funny and crazy. Bane and Ruby from Shacking Up were heavily featured in this book as well. I loved the exotic location of Bora Bora in addition to New York. I can’t wait to read more of this series. I haven’t yet read Bane and Ruby’s story but I plan to read that and the rest of the series.
