This is book #1 in the Caliendo Resort series.
Violet Caliendo was a divorced wedding coordinator at her family owned resort. How could it be a problem to plan her ex-husband’s wedding with the ex-employee from the resort?
Violet felt she could do it even if that meant coming face to face with Ryder Carlex.
Ryder the playboy that Joel had used as his best man, again. Just as he had at her own wedding with Joel. Her feelings about Ryder are so intense. Joel had shared so many stories about his debauchery that disgusted her.
Ryder was wonderfully written. He is so complex and has secrets that he refuses to let come to light. He will endure any gossip and stories to keep his secrets closeted away.
The story was great. With characters that are well rounded and have minds of their own. Marc from the McAdams Sisters series has an active role in this story. He is always fun, and the family all know how to get him riled up.
Violet and Ryder keep coming together and it just keeps getting hotter and hotter for them. They only have to worry about Joel, her family, oh yeah and her kids. There are secrets that have the potential to hurt so many people. It doesn’t help that Robert Caliendo’s secret room is being invaded by the family in order to make amends. That means secrets are being brought out into the open.
Shannyn Leah has really started this new series with a bang. This book was hard to put down. It was filled with laughter, pain and love. Each facet was beautifully written.
I am now going to read book #2, Sunset Rivalry. I can’t wait to delve into this story. I can depend on Shannyn to bring me a great story to sink my teeth into.
