Publisher: Swoon Romance
Andrew Sheffield and Ally Arietta meet in paradise: Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They have nothing in common: He’s a workaholic CEO, embittered after the failure of his first marriage. She’s been caring for her ailing Sicilian grandmother who’s just passed away, and now she’s ready to put herself first for a change. The sparks fly, but Andrew is no easy guy to get along with. His workaholic ways have them bickering from the start, but Ally decides that doesn’t matter: It’s just a fling.
But when Ally nearly dies during a para-sailing accident, Andrew realizes she means much more to him than casual sex. The accident causes Ally to run scared: She’s vowed to put herself first after years of self-sacrifice. She breaks it off and returns to Chicago to resume the life she interrupted to care for her grandmother, but she hasn’t seen the last of Andrew, who is determined not to let her walk away.

Ally is finally getting the chance to do things for herself after having taken care of her grandmother for the last few years. In Mexico the last thing she was looking for was a relationship, after all that means looking out for more than herself, but when she can't get the annoying Andrew off her mind she decides she needs a vacation fling.
Andrew cares more about his company than what others think of him. So why does this curvy beauty capture his interest so much? Making him give up his access to his phone and laptop for a chance to spend time with her he begins to realize that maybe making money isn't everything. When she nearly dies in an accident he realizes he not only wants but needs to reprioritize his life. But when she runs what will he do and can he prove what he really wants or will his addiction to his work run Ally off for good?
Ally is feisty, she knows what she wants and is willing to go to bat for it. She may look like a pushover from the outside, but inside she has her values and sticks to them.
Andrew is cocky and confident, he tell things like they are and appreciates people who can stand toe to toe with him. When he realizes his life isn't going the way he wants it he does what it takes to change things even if it means learning some hard truths along the way.
I enjoyed this story and even more so a strong heroine who doesn't just roll over. They both had their ideals and it was fun watching them both learn that what they both wanted wasn't quite what they thought it was and how to accept each other, faults and all.
