[R] Tryst, by: Cambria Hebert

(Take It Off #8)
by: Cambria Hebert


Sometimes all a girl needs is a little fling…

Talie Ronson needs a vacation.

From life.

Since she caught her cheating, loser husband in bed with his assistant, her life has been on a steady spiral—right into hell. Her car’s a junker, her job sucks, and her perfect, gorgeous sister likes to brag about her wonderful life every time they “do” lunch.

In an effort to salvage what’s left of her life and her sanity, she takes the advice of her kooky best friend and takes off to Topsail Island. A week at the beach, alone, is exactly what she needs to recharge, regroup, and relax.

Only, her alone time is about to get derailed.

Gavin Palmer’s favorite activity is walking around in his boxers and eating junk food. He and his neighbors have an understanding. They stay out of his business and he stays out of theirs. He lives at the beach, not for vacation, but for isolation. He’s had enough of people to last him a lifetime.

Gavin’s isolation is interrupted when his normally quiet neighbor starts disturbing his peace. He stomps across the sand to give the guy a piece of his mind… only it isn’t a guy.

It’s Talie.

She’d maddening, nosy, and talks too much.

But she’s hot and her bedroom eyes have him thinking maybe he’s had enough solitude. Maybe a week of company is exactly what he needs.

Maybe what they both need is a no-strings-attached tryst.

I liked this book, but I have the feeling that it could have been longer. Not because I wanted to, but because it had so much potential to be longer. And that is what I'm most bothered about.

Tallie's husband cheated and on top of that he wants her to stay because nothing bad really happened. She takes their money, sign the separations papers and go to a beach house to clear her head. There she finds Gavin. Gavin lives alone in the beach, staying away from anything and everyone. Both of their hearts are broken, so they found themselves having this solution of just having sex thing. But feelings always come with the bill. What they will do?

Tallie and Gavin's heart problems were very different, but the feelings of feeling heartbroken were the same. They got hurt one way or another and being together was the best cure for them, even though they don't saw it as clearly as I did. They agreeing to have a no-strings-attached was a sorry excuse to be together as they like. That's why the last chapters were so beautiful and the epilogue was so perfect.

As I said, I am mad that this book wasn't extended as it could have been. Divorces doesn't solve that easy when one of the parts is in denial. What about the money she took? And she got pregnant while married! I mean, what an awful lawsuit of a book would have been. But I don't judge because I liked the book and writing about lawsuits and such is not that fun as everyone thought it is. So... in other news, I might skip book number nine (because reasons) and go straight to number ten. Anyways, read me later!
