Review: Sea Glass Island

About the Book:
Under summer skies, New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods evokes family, friendship and heartfelt emotion

With her two younger sisters heading for the altar, will Samantha Castle exchange old dreams for new ones? Lately she'd rather be on the North Carolina coast with family than in New York with agents and actors. Though she vows not to let her teenage crush on Ethan Cole influence her decision, it's hard to ignore her feelings for the local war hero.

Ethan lost more than his leg in Afghanistan. He lost his belief in love. Even being surrounded by couples intent on capturing happily-ever-after won't open this jaded doctor's heart. It's going to take a sexy, determined woman—one who won't take no for an answer.

My Comments:
When we are young we think we can do anything; as we grow older we realize that we can't.  That's not a bad attitude, it's reality.  When pursing dreams, whether personal or professional, most of us hit a ceiling at some point.  Some are able to be happy under that ceiling; others realize they need to find a new house.  Samantha has always wanted to be an actress and has done well enough at it to keep herself fed (well, between acting and waiting tables).  However, she's getting older and knows that for most it is a  young woman's game.  I enjoyed watching her look at different options and finally settle on the one that was best for her.

I liked Ethan too.  He lost some of his dreams with his leg but now is learning to dream again.

They get intimate but we are outside the door.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.  Grade:  B.
