One bad boy billionaire plus one sexy geek equals one hot fling.

It's a travel nightmare for mathematician Caylee Reynolds. It's bad enough that her luggage was lost en route to her conference, but when she arrives at the Australian resort and learns that she's also lost her reservation, Caylee’s ready to break down. Then things get even worse. The resort is owned by Blake Sampson―the bad boy who once took everything from her...

Blake thought he’d left his troubled past far behind him. Then the sexy-but-proper math guru he’s never been able to forget walks into his lobby. Hoping to show Caylee he’s changed, he offers to share his suite. Except the attraction between them only grows in such close quarters―exponentially.

Even though Blake’s incredibly successful—and hot—Caylee’s not sure she can risk her heart again. Not after the way he destroyed her trust when he disappeared years ago. But if she's wrong in her calculations, she could lose everything...

This book just about had it all.  The hot bad boy with a heart of gold, a smart woman that knows what she wants, and a tropical paradise.  With a history that goes back years for our main characters - one that's filled with untruths and assumptions that have haunted them both for years.  So much goodness I couldn't believe it.

So Caylee is pretty damn smart.  She's a mathematician working on some pretty heavy concepts, but may be losing her funding if she doesn't impress the new director.  So off she goes to a conference at an island resort run by - or course - her crush from long ago - the one that loved her and left and she's still pissed at how she thinks he did it.

Blake is an amazing bad boy turned billionaire.  He comes from a rough past and it never truly leaves him, but he's made the best of all the lessons he's learned and come out on top - and then some.  He now owns the resort and jumps at the chance to help Caylee when her travel plays go awry.  He also jumps at the chance to show her what he's made of himself.  He feels the need to prove to this beautiful and smart woman that he's not the loser he seems to think she thinks he is.

Now, I mentioned they have a history - but it isn't didn't fall out the way either of them though it did.  I'm not normally a huge fan of misunderstandings driving emotions in romances, but this one was written in a way that I could actually see it happening.  Their assumptions were logical based on the way events played out and they never had reasons to doubt them - until now.  Now the both need to be honest and own up to what they did and didn't do if they want to find out if they'll ever work.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
