About the Book:
After another lonely Valentine’s Day, Gabi Romano trades mountain snowfall for sunshine and sand at a luxurious Caribbean getaway. There she finds not one but two thrilling new passions: creating art glass, and Flynn Brogan, the sexy caretaker next door who brings her fantasies to life. But when violence interrupts their romantic interlude, she learns that Flynn is living a lie. Heartsick, she decides to concentrate on her craft. Playing with fire is safer than loving a man like Flynn.
Flynn is determined to make things right with Gabi—until his enemies interfere. Now damaged and driven by a need he cannot define, he seeks out Gabi’s Colorado community as a mystery man searching for peace, though not expecting redemption. But he never imagined a place like Eternity Springs, where lives are changed, second chances are given, and the possibility exists for two wounded souls to find their way home . . . to each other.
This is another one of those books that doesn't suffer from excessive realism. The original premise isn't too far-fetched: The dog-sitter for the rich folks meets the guy she thinks is the pool boy next door, only of course he isn't. It turns out they are both running from their pasts to some degree. I enjoyed watching them get to know each other, but somehow neither Flynn or Gabi really came alive for me. In short, a basic formula romance with a couple of dreamy settings. It is part of a series so there are some useless characters running around, but the back story isn't really significant to this story.
