You can’t run away from commitment forever …
Adam Hamilton-Shaw has more reason than most to avoid commitment. Living on a houseboat in the Severn Valley, his dream is to sail into the sunset – preferably with a woman waiting in every port. But lately, his life looks more like a road to destruction than an idyllic boat ride…
Would-be screenplay writer Sienna Meadows realises that everything about Adam spells trouble – but she can’t ignore the feeling that there is more to him than just his bad reputation. Nor can she ignore the intense physical attraction that exists between them.
And it just so happens that Adam sees Sienna as the kind of woman he could commit to. But can he change his damaging behaviour – or is the road to destruction a one-way street?
Take a chance on love! A second chance…
Wow! There’s so much I want to say about this book, but I don’t want to spoil a bit of it for you! I’ve got a warning for those who don’t like cheating. There is cheating in this book (quite a bit, actually, especially implied cheating and talking about cheating), but the H does NOT cheat on the h. Personally, I LIKED the way cheating was presented in this book, and it’s not anything pretty, with no glorification of it. 🙂 That’s all I’ll say about it.
There’s a special word I’ve learned from this book (British slang) that I’m going to enjoy using on Amazon reviews, because the American version (a**) is not allowed and that word is prat. I LOVE THIS WORD! Prat, prat, prat! Thank you, Sheryl, for gifting Americans with such a lovely word. I’ve got a British addiction at the moment *cough*DanandPhil*cough* and Choc Lit books.
THIS Choc Lit book will have you giggling a bit, crying a LOT (I love books that spot up my glasses with projectile tears), and falling in love with a damaged commitment-phob PRAT 😉 who just wants to love and be loved (don’t we all?). The h is a communication-phob. What is a communication-phob? It’s someone who runs from every misunderstanding and jumping to the wrong conclusion. Some would call her TSTL, but I wouldn’t go that far with her. Every runaway moment was well thought out for at LEAST three minutes. Goodness, I want to put another winky emoticon here, but that might just be one too many.
Overall, this book is brilliant and was very hard to put down. It’s one that made me want to forget about necessary real-life things like peeing and sleep. I think I’ll make myself a cup of tea to ease my pounding book hangover.
Thank you to Choc Lit who gave me this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. You can trust Choc Lit for a good, romantic read every. Single. Time.

Amelyn, I love you! Thank you so much for a superb and very happy-making review! I saw it last night as I tucked up in bed. It made me snort with laughter and go to sleep one extremely contented bunny. Thrilled to bits. 🙂 xx
I like you! I really LIKE you! (Sally Field’s–American actress–reference that I’m not sure extends across the pond.) Love you, too, sweetie! Bask in the praise…well done! <3
Haw, haw! It does! Thanks so much, Amelyn. Ditto. You’re a little star! 🙂 xx
