Falling in love is like swimming with sharks…
Sharona Blaire is only in Australia for a business audit, but she’s determined to make the most of her one free night. So when she spills her drink on a handsome stranger and they end up flirting, she does something completely out of character—she kisses him. But the prospect of taking it further totally freaks her out…almost as much as discovering the next morning that the man she’s auditing is the sexy, tanned stranger she left with zero explanation.
An audit during his crew’s most important expedition yet is a complication marine biologist Jeff Cruz doesn't need—especially when the auditor is the gorgeous, fascinating woman from the night before. Out at sea with nowhere to run, he’s forced to admit Sharona draws him in like a shark to blood. But Jeff's one passion is his job, and nothing—not even love—will get its hooks in him...
Thank you to Entangled Publishing for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review!
Love Bites was a super fast read and one that left you filled with warmth and grin plastered to your face. Sharona and Jeff meet in an unfortunate way, at least for Jeff. I’m not too sure anyone would be as calm as Jeff was when having a Bloody Mary spilled all over himself during a long 24 hour flight, but then again, this spill leads up to a whole lot more.
Sharona has traveled down under for a quick business trip and to get away from her boss/ex-fiance.
Jeff is back home to collect some data for his shark research.
When these two seem to keep bumping into each other, it’s no surprise that Sharona’s business trip involves this sexy Aussie. The one and only Jeff, whom she accidentally spilled not one, but two drinks on the day before.
Like I said, this is a quick read but it’s definitely not lacking the romance! There were times I completely forgot they were aboard a boat just off the Australian coast. Ophelia London definitely knows how to rock the boat [in a good way] with these two! I loved their chemistry. I loved Jeff’s Aussie accent. (I mean, let’s get real…who doesn’t love a man with an accent?) And I loved that both POVs were covered.
Summer isn’t over just yet, and this is the perfect novella to take you on a quick trip down under.
