Character development: ☺️🤬🥵😘
The heroine: Natalie – recently divorced she is on a bachelorette trip to Cancun. She is determined to have a good time and not get into anything serious. Natalie owns her own successful realty business in Santa Barbara.
The Hero(s): Parker – On a trip with a bunch of guys to try to raise the spirits of one of the guys that just lost his job and fiancé in one fell swoop. Parker is a Hollywood stunt man who lives in San Juan Capistrano.
The Story: Parker and Natalie meet at LAX and are seated next to each other on the plane to Cancun. They are immediately taken with each other and spend time getting to know each other in the few days they spend in Cancun.
“The electricity between us could power a city.”
They end up seeing each other once they get home as well. Though Natalie has some hang ups stemming from the fact that she always believed her husband until she found him in bed with someone else. Parker finds that Natalie is “the one” very early on but a former girlfriend tries to get in between them.
I liked the story, I liked that it was set in different places (Cancun, San Juan Capistrano, Santa Barbara, movie sets and more). It is far away from sitting in my house in Minnesota while it is 20 degrees outside. Fun in the sun sounds so good right now.
The narration was perfect. Erin Mallon does a good job and sounds like the perfect age for a thirty-something career woman and Brian Pallino has a nice deep voice which is perfect for the Stunt Man Hero who can lift up the heroine and toss her around into different positions at a moments notice.
