Captain Charlotte “Charlie” O'Brien, a doctor in the United States Navy, returns to her home in North Salem, Massachusetts to visit her family and make an important decision about her future. Mother Nature has other plans when a hurricane strikes, flooding the town and throwing Jake Sherbrooke in Charlie's path. Initially she believes Jake is nothing more than a rich playboy, but quickly, she learns that he is so much more.
The media calls him Prince Charming
Jake Sherbrooke has never been one to follow the path laid out by his parents. That is why he started the Falmouth Foundation, a non-profit disaster relief organization rather than enter politics. When he learns of the destruction in North Salem, he immediately travels there to offer aid and meets Charlie O'Brien. Charlie is unlike any woman he has ever meet and he can not help but be drawn to her.
Soon neither can ignore the incredible chemistry between them. But will his reputation as a billionaire playboy damage their budding romance?

I was glad that this was a stand alone book despite being the second in the Sherbrookes of Newport Series. I haven't read the first one and it was nice to be able to pick this one up and jump right in without worrying that I would be missing something.
The main character is Jake, a world-class playboy - someone who everyone views as a literal playboy. Charlotte (Charlie), is a strong independent woman who vows that she will never fall in love or enter into a relationship. Jake proves to be a greater strength than her resolve to stay single and this book really is a cute story of their path towards happiness.
I liked this story, it was a light read and one that really went quick for me. It made me want to pick up the other book in the series and see if that one was as good as this one was!
Looking forward to following Christina's work in the future!
