Caribbean Crossroads by Connie E. Sokol
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Description: New college grad Megan McCormick just got dumped. Hard. Swearing off men and relationships, Megan is coaxed into performing on a cruise ship where she meets the star performer, Bryant Johnson. Handsome and charismatic, he looks like trouble, but she can't deny the intense attraction between them. Urged to find a wife and run the family lumber business, Bryant is torn between his family's expectations for his life and his own. However, when he meets spunky, but love-skittish Megan McCormick, settling down doesn't look so bad. Just when Megan begins to trust again, and Bryant makes some big decisions regarding his future, her former fiance returns with a malicious surprise, taking Megan and Bryant to their own CARIBBEAN CROSSROADS.
My thoughts: Meagan has been hurt. Tragically, the man who she thought she loved ended up a callus jerk! She was blindsided because she did not see the horrendous break up coming. Throughout the book, new details are revealed that let us know why it was so traumatic and why she has a hard time trusting.
Bryant is a nice guy. He comes across at first as a bit arrogant. The more you learn about him, the more likable he becomes. He has many issues that he has to learn to deal with until he can be the man that Meagan needs.
It is interesting to see the two develop as characters and the attraction they feel is full of sparks.
This is a fun and clean romance. ***This review was originally posted June 22, 2012. ***
