The Resort to Romance series is still going strong. We’ve got a few more weeks in this 10-week novella release collection.
About the Book
They’re both determined to leave matchless.
But neither count on losing their heart–
Ava Raleigh is going to strangle her best friend. Conned into going on a trip to the Bahamas for “Matchmaking” Week, Ava determines to everything she can to not be matched. She’d soak in the sun and enjoy every minute of her vacation–while completely ignoring whatever poor sap she gets matched with. What she doesn’t expect is to be forced to spend time with her match. And the tiny fact that her match is a giant.
Former NFL football player Sean Jackson is only on this trip because he loves his mother–nothing more. Sure, he feels guilty that some woman is paired with him and will be disappointed that he isn’t interested–but that is bound to happen to most of the couples anyway, right? But he never expects a woman like Ava Raleigh. She is a puzzle–one he shouldn’t want to put together but as the week goes on, he can’t help himself.
Ava refuses to fall for Sean. No way, not going to happen. He is all kinds of wrong for her. Not only is he out of her league, he also scares her more than a little. But as the week goes on, she comes to tolerate him–then even like him a little. Okay, fine, maybe a lot.
But then a phone call changes everything…
In My Opinion
Two people begrudgingly sent to matchmaking week on Joy Island are paired together. What are the odds?
That commonality actually makes the story work well. Ava and Sean have a rough start but as they’re follow the rules and spend time together, they open up and learn to appreciate their differences. Yes, these two live different lives but they complement each other. And both Sean and Ava love Jesus and share their faith with each other.
There are enough awkward situations to keep the lightheartedness of a rom com while some difficult subjects are handled with care. Krista Phillips balances some serious subject matter against humorous exchanges, growing attraction, and the promise of hope that is only found in a relationship with the One who knows every part of us.
