After losing her husband to a sudden heart attack, Tess Mathews escapes to Bora Bora to lay her husband and sorrow to rest. What she doesn't expect is a new beginning.
Tom Clemmins is an A-list actor whose life revolves around work and an onslaught of women. He travels to Bora Bora for a much-needed break. Tom has a few ideas of how he'll enjoy his vacation, but love isn't one of them. Until he sees Tess.
Reserving a private shark-feeding excursion to scatter her husband's ashes into the lagoon, Tess is furious when Mr. Hollywood bribes his way onto the boat, leaving her no other choice but to share the boat ride.
Tess is torn between tremendous guilt and zealous lust when their boat ride turns into a week full of romance and desire neither thought imaginable. Utterly smitten with a woman for the first time in his life, Tom casts his commitment phobia aside and whisks Tess off to Malibu where he introduces her as his "girlfriend" on the red carpet.
As the paparazzi besiege, can Tess survive the media blitz that ensues in order to find her second chance at love?

The story is about finding love twice in a lifetime. Tess was fortunate enough to fall in love and stay in love for 25 years with her husband. But a sudden heart attack took all that away from her. Yet she is blessed enough to find it again with someone very unexpected and very special one.
- I only gave the book 3 stars because I just found it uneventful and boring. Not even sure why it was boring -maybe I just couldn't really connect with the characters? And nothing intriguing happened? I'm searching here. It has a lot of sex, which does not make a book bad or good to me...depends on if their is build up, hotness, tenderness. This has hotness and fun and tenderness, but just never felt connected to the characters. I really just didn't find it very interesting and was wanting it to be over.
Good story and even better message - never take good things for granted. They really could go away unexpectedly. Book not just for young adults.
Narrator is very good. I rated book four stars only because of the Tess character being so aggressive sexually. Not realistic and added nothing to the book. Just too much or would have rated five stars.
