Shannon Wentworth’s biological clock is ticking, and she isn’t going to let her single status keep her from having a baby. When her wedding-photography business takes her to Mexico, she has every intention of finding a willing baby daddy to help her out. Until the bride goes AWOL, leaving Shannon to coddle the arrogant fiancé who has accused her of sabotaging his wedding.

Victor Brooks never could have imagined that he’d be on a honeymoon for one. Only here he is, taking a hard look at his life after the younger women he thought he loved walked out. The woman who volunteers to help him reflect is the last person he expects to be attracted to. Between the tequila, the sun, and one earth-shattering kiss, Victor finds Shannon a distraction too sexy to ignore.

They strike a deal: wait three months, cool off, and see if their tropical beach attraction is worth taking up when they go back home. Unfortunately, that’s just enough time for the past to come calling. All their best-laid plans are at risk. So is the last thing Shannon expected to matter the most: her heart.

Shannon and Victor are older and way more mature. It is so refreshing to experience it. I didn’t read the other books in the series but I plan to go back. I’m curious to get to know Shannon before Victor. All of her friends found love and are breaking out to start families. Shannon is still reeling from her divorce. She knows she is older and her biological clock is ticking. She informs the girls that she is going to pick a random baby daddy.

The girls are protective of her and they don’t want her to get hurt. Avery agrees to join Shannon in Mexico during her work trip to help her with the baby daddy search. The trip goes completely unplanned when the bride Shannon is hired by stands up the groom. The groom is an extremely attractive jerk who bumps heads with Shannon.

Victor knew that his fiancé was not the one but he went through all of the steps to securing the bride. He didn’t anticipate her bailing out on the wedding.  At the advice of his brother, he decides to stay a few days to reflect about life and unwind. It is kind of hard to do so when he is having lustful thoughts every time he runs into Shannon and her friend.

This is just a fun read. I liked that Victor and Shannon had this tug of war without putting in too much of an effort fighting. They knew when to flirt and when to fight. They both knew they were attracted to one another. Shannon gives in a bit during their time in Mexico but to challenge herself, she informs Victor that if he could wait 60 days when they return, they if it real.

Victor surprises me. He discovers himself. He is so suited for Shannon. They are perfectly balanced. There is a bit of drama from the past that hit them. It is resolved quickly but is still a bit predictable.  The epilogue is cute and I’m happy I got a chance to experience a part of this series.
