This was an nice read and had likeable characters. I was a little concerned that this story would be kind of heavy and sad with dealing with the death of Ian's brother, but it really wasn't that way. This could actually be considered a nice and light love story, other than Ian's issues with his brother there is no angst or over the top drama. There is an instant attraction and lust with these two and of course they are both gorgegous and are in a wonderful tropical place. That pretty much sets the tone of the story, however there is a lot of healing that Ian needed to do and Temaru and the island was the perfect place for him to do it. This was a fast reading book which ended up enjoyable for me.
