Just because some books ruined my mood, I feel conflicted to pick up this book. I tried to stay away from book with feels, ya know. A second chance romance story with fabulous cover. However, this new Meghan March's book was totally unexpected read for me.

Ten days. One marriage to save. We can do this.

Kat and Dane Cross are trying to repair their two and half years of marriage. Many things cause they drifted away. When Dane "asked" her to go to holiday with him, this is her only chance to make things right. But seeing Dane looks so cold and intense, Kat isn't sure if she worth to back to him.

Kat is really smart, independent and hard-working woman. She has her own business and always buried herself with works. I already sense something's wrong to cause this woman act this way. Moving on with Dane, he isn't a saint either. He seems like an ass at first. They're really awkward like a total stranger. Something definitely wrong.

There’s so much I haven’t told her, but now it’s time.
How can I expect a fresh start when our entire marriage is based on a lie?

The story told from 2 POVs between Kat and Dane. There was a bit flashbacks about what's going on between them. Their first met until the sudden marriage. The cause of their problems is communication. They coped with their own grief and sorrow. Both Kat and Dane has serious issues in their life. Of course, the worst happened to Kat. I couldn't agree more. It scared her and I ached for Kat.

You're driven. Ambitious. I am too. We only get one ride, Kat, and I think you're meant to be part of mine. Say yes, and I promise you won't regret it.”

After they opened up their feelings, everything's getting better. They joke and flirt again. It was really fun. Like their first date. I loved how detailed Meghan March describe their romantic getaway. The island sounds really wonderful. Yup, finally Kat and Dane has sexy times which was super HOT! Dane was so alpha and dominant and it makes me fan myself.

Of course, they're not really alone in the island. There is another "odd" couple joined them. My spider sense is tingling. As how much the journey, the rest of 50% isn't like what I've anticipated. Totally blown away with the turn out of events. But I already suspect something's coming from Dane's secret.

Overall, I enjoyed the story so much. Totally addicting and well-written; really the author's trademark. I couldn't put this down! However, I wish Kat and Dane has more time to re-build their lost connection. What happened with them is really heart-breaking. I know it isn't easy for everyone to open up. And, they just teach us something about trust & communication in a relationship. In the end, it's a happily ever after ;)

“You want this? You want us? You want everything I'm going to give you?”
“Tell me. Tell ,me this is forever, Kat. Always and fucking forever”.
“Yes. Always and forever”.
