When workaholic Boston attorney Deirdra de Messiéres is passed over for a well-deserved promotion, she takes a two-month hiatus to show her boss just how much he needs her and heads home to Silver Island. But beyond seeing her sisters happy, home is not where Deirdra’s heart is. She has no interest in their family restaurant, the Bistro, or reliving hurtful childhood memories, and absolutely no interest in spending a single second with Josiah “Jagger” Jones, the Bistro’s too-laid-back musician and chef. Sure, the hippie is hot, but he drives her nuts. The guy lives in a van with his dog, and he can’t even commit to a solid work schedule. To make matters worse, he’s always around. She needs to get off the island, stat.
Jagger has overcome his own personal trials to place stock in life’s pleasures: family, friends, peace…and if he has his way, one positively beautiful, absolutely uptight attorney. Jagger knows he’s the perfect person to help Deirdra deal with her hurtful past and find her way back to being happy.
A chance encounter leads to deep conversation, and night after liberating night, Deirdra lets down her guard. But neither is long for Silver Island. Free-spirited Jagger has wanderlust, and Deirdra has a career to return to. They’re on different paths, and plans for a future together don’t stand a chance. But when has anything gone according to plan?

Not my first read with author and I’ve read the others in the series. This series is not a favorite of mine from MF but you can’t have it always like that. That said, this was enjoyable to read still because I love MF’s writing style.
Deidra and Jagger are total opposites. One left the town to work on her career with a very rough past and now is a work-a-holic to the core. She’s just existing and even a little grumpy/mean. But when you get to know her better you know that that is coming from being lonely and mentally broken. Jagger is kind of the light at the end of the tunnel for Deidra. They may not go well together on paper but they are similar in many ways. Very strong, sweet and great story line. Lot’s of emotions in this book. Great addition to the series.
