For the next eleven days all Amelia Adler wants is a nice relaxing vacation on the beach. All she’ll do is drink pineapple margaritas and read sexy steamy romance novels. She doesn’t want to think about the stress of her daily life nor the fact that she doesn’t know what to do with her life.
Craig Patrice just wants to spend his last spring break catching wave after waves during the day in the Pacific Ocean, and relax as much as he can at night. This is his last break before finishing law school and starting at a firm this upcoming summer. He has no desire for a fling or a girlfriend. All he wants is to buckle down and finish this year off right. That is until he gets a glimpse of his vacationing neighbor, and for the life of him, he can’t look away. Though Craig and Amelia are somewhat reluctant for a relationship, they seem to find comfort in one another and can’t let go of each other. Finding romance on vacation is one thing, but can their relationship withstand the demand of real life and once their past catches up with them will believing in each other’s truth save their future.

Sitting back, I try to relax again, but I’m hyped and overly aware of all the sounds around me. Cory comes through the glass sliding doors, and offers me a three finger Macallan then settles down into the lounge chair next to me with a drink of his own. There are some things in this world that you cannot skimp on, and a good scotch is one of them.
“Whoa, whose big ride? Wasn’t there five minutes ago,” Cory states.
“Yeah, seems like we’ll be having a neighbor for a couple of days,” I say nonchalantly.
“Neighbor? As in one?” Cory asks.
“Yeah, she’s a cute lil’ thang,” I drawl, laughing to myself. You can take the boy out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the boy.
“Hmmm, maybe she’ll want to come over later for our get together with the girls from this morning,” Cory grins to himself.
I let out a laugh, dividing my focus between Cory and the house across the drive path.
“You trying to woo them with your cooking?”
“Hey! A lady has to appreciate a man who can grill, right?” Cory asks, taking of a sip of his scotch.
“Yes, a lady would, but those girls…” I raise a questioning eyebrow at my brother.
Cory laughs. “Yeah, okay, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate what they have to offer me.”
“Okay, just don’t appreciate them so much that you can’t catch some waves tomorrow.”
My brother and I have two different ideas of this vacation. Cory wants to meet as many girls as he can, I just want to catch as many waves and adrenaline rushes as I can.
“I won’t,” Cory chuckles and leans back in his chair facing the ocean. “Hey! You okay man? You’ve been quiet, and let me tap into what mom would say, umm, ‘reflective’, lately. What’s going on in that head of ours?”
I laugh at my brother’s concern. Cory and our mom have always been close. Cory is a year younger and is a bigger mama’s boy than I am. Whenever we’re looking out for each other, we always worry through our mom’s eyes, so to speak.
“Yeah, I’m fine, just finishing up school is stressful and then next year, you know.”
“Man, you just need a girl!” Cory states. This is not uncommon for him to say. It’s his answer for everything. Bored? Get with a girl. Going to get food? Get it with a girl. Going to buy toilet paper? Get it with a girl. Some part of Cory just doesn’t want to grow up, it seems.
