Published by: Ink Monster LLC
Publication date: July 18th 2017
Genres: Adult, Adventure, Romance

Perfect for fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Janet Evanovich, this action-packed debut from a fresh voice in contemporary romance offers a sexy and comedic take on love, adventure, and what it means to trust your heart.

English socialite Sophie Davies-Stone has been longing to meet her father since she was a little girl. When he sends her a mysterious medallion and asks her to forward it to him in Miami, she can’t help herself from doing something totally un-Sophie-like. Rather than mailing it as instructed, Sophie hops on a flight to Florida.

But the family reunion never happens. Instead, Sophie is attacked and almost kidnapped by her father’s enemies. Her savior is Jimmy Panama, a cocky and annoyingly handsome former Navy SEAL. Sophie isn’t the only one who’s annoyed. After years of trying to find a way to pay back his CO, Jimmy never thought his debt would get him mixed up with his commander’s uptight, British daughter. He just wants to put her on the next flight home and get back to his low-stress life in Key West, but fate has other plans.

As Sophie and Jimmy embark on a heart-pounding adventure through Key West and the Caribbean, Sophie finds herself falling for the snarky American. Still, her head says Jimmy is all wrong for her, and the more she finds out about him – and her father – the more uncertain she is about who she can trust.

One thing is clear. Sophie is in way over her head, and her greatest adventure might be her last.

My Review:


Be careful what you wish for… you might encounter a lot more that what you wanted!!!

This is the first book from ¨The Key West Escape¨

When Sophie Davies-Stone set out to meet her elusive father Mitch, she never expected not only NOT to meet him but being almost kidnapped, arrested for solicitation, pursued by her father’s enemies and least of all all the sizzling fireworks with a certain Jimmy Panama, for all accounts her saviour.

<blockquote>”She took in his borad shoulders and impresssive biceps. His lean waist- Bloody hell the man was fit”</blockquote>

Jimmy hates owing favors, but if he is going to pay a debt it would no doubt be for Mad Dog Mitch. He owed his life to him, so, when he asks just to retrieve an item from a hotel room, there was no problem with that. The problems started when the item arrived hanging on the neck of a gorgeous woman who just happens to be Mad Dog’s daughter.

<blockquote>”It was official. He was as vertical as a stripper pole.”</blockquote>

From that moment on, all hell breaks loose.

The book is very well written, it is fast paced, with adventure, gunfights, races, punches, and a very hot chemistry between the main characters.

The characters are a hoot to be around, Jimmy Panama is a very sexy, hot man, ex navy seal with an intelligence and a wit to him that makes him the whole package.

Sophie is the seemingly stuck up snob used to be the good girl with money.

So scramble them together and you get a whole lot of smiling. The way each one gets to know the other, and how they push each others buttons has you smirking almost all the book!

This is the first book I read from Tricia, and I assure you it won’t be the last!

I recieved this ARC via expressotours in exchange of an honest review.
