An Indulgence Novella

Cass thought spending a month at a beachside hideaway relaxing and collecting shells would be the perfect escape to finish her novel. When she meets the dark and brooding and much younger Jonah, who's staying next door, her book becomes the last thing on her mind.

Jonah would rather stay home alone than go on vacation with his brother and their friends, but does his best to tolerate the situation after being convinced to go. But when he sees the beauty next door, he can't avoid his attraction.

Together, they break all the rules, but will Cass be able to bring Jonah out of his shell forever, or will he leave her with only the crash of the surf to keep her company?
This book just didn't quite do it for me.  It had all the right elements, just not in the right amounts.  A little too  much sex that brought it closer to erotic than I usually read and not enough about the relationship. The relationship that was there was interesting and I really wish I had gotten to see a little more depth to it.

Cass is a writer trying to get the next book in her series done and Jonah is, well we're not quite sure at first.  But there is attraction and sparks and they just seem to fall into bed one night.  There's a lot of insecurity on Cass's part because she was older and I got a little tired of her doubting herself.

Now once we got into Jonah's history and he struggles, it was very interesting, but by then we were at the end of the book.  I just wanted more from this, but if you enjoy books that are more physical, you may enjoy it.  Check out some of the other reviews on Goodreads and see what they have to say - the rest of the world seems to like it a lot.
