A temporary agreement neither could keep…

Brainy, organized Sophie Birch is no beach bunny. In fact, she’s totally out of her element among the sun-bronzed crowd at a film festival in beautiful White Strand Cove. When a surf lesson introduces her to Zane Hollander, suddenly she's up close and personal with the world's sexiest surf star. But what can a great-looking, experienced athlete possibly see in a klutzy out-of-towner who’s never set foot in the ocean?

Zane Hollander's playboy reputation has never been a problem…until recently. Now his management team wants him on his best behavior to entice a meaningful new sponsor. Sophie Birch is the perfect girl to help reform his image. She's genuine and respected—and their relationship is purely fictional. But the more Sophie blooms under the beachy sun, the more Zane knows he'll just break her heart. Because nothing's more important to Zane than following the tide.

Loved it!  Sophie is sweet and smart but lacking in confidence with the opposite sex.  When she is on a working vacation, she meets Zane Hollander, sexy surf star.  Zane is the opposite of Sophie, always in the public eye and has a certain reputation with the ladies.  Sophie quickly makes friends with Holly, who pushes to break out of her shell, have a good time and enjoy Zane as her "Mr. Right Now" while she's in town.  It was nice to see them evolve from friends to lovers slowly.  

There is more to Zane than surfing and his bad-boy image.  Sophie has a way of bringing the real Zane out and making him feel smart.  He shared things with her that only his family or his two best friends Danny and Bryce know about.  Zane brings out the more adventurous side of Sophie and helps build her confidence.  The more time Sophie and Zane spend together, the more their feelings get involved and the harder it becomes to say goodbye at the end of the film festival.  Zane screws up and lets Sophie go by hurting her.  Once he get his head on straight, he has to convincer her to give him another chance.  The ending is super cute and romantic, but I don't want to spoil it for you, so you will just have to read it!

Great start to the series, can't wait to read about Bryce and Holly, I'm dying to know what happened between and why she was avoiding him.  Sweet and romantic, gets a hot towards the end!
