I have to start this review by saying, the title of this book, for some reason, makes me think of Bob Marley. I can assure you however, that Bob plays no part whatsoever in this book, but every time I look at the title I want to burst out into song, Jamaican accent and all.
Anyway getting back to the book itself, I think I may have been a little too harsh with the first book. I stated that I wasn't sure the characters were memorable enough. Well I have to hang my head in shame, because that most definitely is not the case in any way, shape, or form.
Vaughn & Bailey are most certainly memorable and it didn't take me long at all to get right back into the world of Hartwell and all of it's residents.
I absolutely adored Vaughn. He was the perfect Alpha male, but by the same token it took someone like Bailey, who refused to let him control her too much, to balance things perfectly. However Vaughn had control in the bedroom or wherever the sex took place. The sex was hot by the way.
This was a perfect story of how two people, who on the surface appeared to despise one another, but ultimately fancied the pants off each other and yes there was a clear build up of future couples stories, which at times did distract me from the main story, but overall this was a hot little read.

Hartwell, Delaware—the perfect place to get away from it all, and find what you never knew you needed…
Bailey Hartwell has many reasons to feel content—her successful business, a close circle of friends, and her steady boyfriend…even if their romance feels staid after ten years without a serious commitment. The only challenge in her life comes in the form of sexy businessman Vaughn Tremaine. She thinks the ex-New Yorker acts superior and that he considers her a small-town nobody. But when Bailey’s blindsided by a betrayal, she’s shocked to discover Vaughn is actually a decent guy.
Vaughn admires Bailey’s free spirit, independence, and loyalty. As his passion for her has grown, his antagonism toward her has only worsened. Every little thing Bailey does seduces him. But when Vaughn’s painful emotional past makes him walk away in fear he will hurt her, it opens an old wound in Bailey, and she uncharacteristically retreats.
Once Vaughn begins to realize he’s made the biggest mistake of his life, he has no choice but to fight like he’s never fought before to convince Bailey that the love they’ve found together only comes around once in a lifetime.
