To review

This was fun (would make such a fun romantic movie too.) Piper is a socialite, all about parties, likes and fun. But then her world comes crashing down and she is exiled! Better yourself if you want to return is her sentence. She is bubbly, energetic and soon realises some important things about her life and so called friends.

Brendan is a fisherman, captain of his ship. A bit cranky when it comes to a certain socialite. And also not ready to move on.

They meet, they get on the wrong foot at once. And then they fancy the heck out of each other.

I liked to see Piper finding her way and realising how strong she is. I liked to see their romance evolve, and I really want to see if her sister finds love since she sure has something going on.

I enjoyed it.

Great narrator, she got the different voices and she made it really enjoyable listening to. She got the feal right

Piper Bellinger is fashionable, influential, and her reputation as a wild child means the paparazzi are constantly on her heels. When too much champagne and an out-of-control rooftop party lands Piper in the slammer, her stepfather decides enough is enough. So he cuts her off, and sends Piper and her sister to learn some responsibility running their late father's dive bar... in Washington.

Piper hasn't even been in Westport for five minutes when she meets big, bearded sea captain Brendan, who thinks she won't last a week outside of Beverly Hills. So what if Piper can't do math, and the idea of sleeping in a shabby apartment with bunk beds gives her hives. How bad could it really be? She's determined to show her stepfather--and the hot, grumpy local--that she's more than a pretty face.

Except it's a small town and everywhere she turns, she bumps into Brendan. The fun-loving socialite and the gruff fisherman are polar opposites, but there's an undeniable attraction simmering between them. Piper doesn't want any distractions, especially feelings for a man who sails off into the sunset for weeks at a time. Yet as she reconnects with her past and begins to feel at home in Westport, Piper starts to wonder if the cold, glamorous life she knew is what she truly wants. LA is calling her name, but Brendan--and this town full of memories--may have already caught her heart.


  1. I loved this book too and agree it would translate well to the screen. I also liked see Piper "find" herself and her purpose and her worth.

    1. Many books would work great, but this one, I so want to see this one :D

  2. That does sound like it would make a good movie.

  3. I've seen some good things about this one. I should try the audio. :)

  4. I haven't read this author yet but this sounds good. One of my dogs is named Piper so it would be weird to read a book with a main character with that name.

  5. I find these opposites attract stories very cute!

  6. Sounds like a really perfect romance story.

  7. I think I did try a book by this author

    1. I have read 2 before, but this one was best

  8. Her books are so hit or miss for me - especially with her heroes.

    1. I have to agree, I think I was not a fan of the first one I read long ago

  9. Cranky fisherman....I love it
