In the sleepy fishing town of Port Lucia, everyone knows everyone, but Isla Diaz really knows Colby Callahan, with his blue-gray eyes and the tousled brown hair always tucked sexily into his cap. After all, Isla has been crazy about Colby ever since she can remember—even if he treats her like a kid sister. Now, without her best friend, Felicity, around, Isla spots a golden opportunity to take things to the next level . . . or at least wrangle a kiss out of Colby.
By random chance, a tropical storm is headed toward the coast, leaving them stranded together overnight—and there’s nothing to do but drink. As the evening wears on, Isla gets the feeling that her not-so-secret crush may finally release her from the friend zone. With her dreams finally coming true, Isla isn’t about to pump the brakes, but is this just a one-time thing? What if the next morning, she needs more than Colby’s prepared to give?
Little does she know, Colby would like nothing more than a real relationship with Isla. She’s always been the one. But there’s a very good reason he’s been keeping his distance. Someone else loves her too, someone who also means the world to Colby: his brother.
Isla has been in love with her best friend Colby for 10 years. She would love to be more than friends but it just isn’t happening – that is until one night when they have both been drinking and end up in bed together. Isla knows that Colby is going to regret it and can’t stand to experience that so she sneaks out of bed and heads home.
After that night the pair of them have some pretty awkward moments. At times it feels to Isla that Colby is wanting more from their relationship but then he’ll back off and she’s more than confused. Then he suggests that maybe she should be with his brother – also her friend – and she’s even more confused! But then, maybe she’s been so focused on Colby for so long that she hasn’t really looked at anyone else. When Landon kisses her, however, she knows that Colby’s the only one for her – if only she can get him on board.
This was a cute story. I liked both Isla and Colby a lot. Of course we only saw Colby through Isla’s eyes so of course he looked awesome since she was in love with him. 🙂
While I liked the story I really wish that Colby and Isla could have spent more time together during the book as a couple. Most of the book is them working through their issues – or avoiding them, whichever was happening at the time. I guess I just wanted more Colby/Isla time and that was hard when Colby was trying to be unselfish and make other people happy. IDK – it was good but I was frustrated with it somewhat.
Overall I liked the book and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
