Heart of Ash (Tryst Island #4) by Sabrina York

Until this story, I thought I had found my favorite in this series in the second title, Dragonfly Kisses. But again, Sabrina York has created characters that are both believable and empathetic, despite a rough start early on.  Back at Tryst Island, the weekend share crowd is completely engrossed in having their own version of a good time: food, friends and some partying.  Slowly but surely those who share the house on the island are pairing off, but these friends still manage to find adventure and enjoyment in company.

Shy and softhearted Emily, who can’t resist a stray, is on the island with her friends for a weekend of fun.  When she encounters Ash at the local bar, the sparks are instantaneous but his reputation and her reticence make him untouchable.  Ash is recovering from a bad divorce, and two parents who were married and divorced more often than anyone could count has fallen into the One Night Stand only trap. 

With typical skill, Sabrina York uses the characters and tumultuous emotions to show their issues, thrown up roadblocks in their path to together that they must overcome, and added several distractions from furry and funny to devious and twisted.  Sexual tension is evident, and sensual descriptions bring pleasure from both points of view, even as they are both fighting the attraction and holding onto the pain of their separation.  Ash the ass, as her friends so aptly named him shows real growth and the ability and willingness to make amends for his bad actions.  These characters are people who could be friends and neighbors, given real reasons for their hesitancy and issues, and presented with a life altering chance at a relationship for a happily ever after.  Each new book brings another couple into focus, while allowing quick moments to check back with those who have gone before.

Whether you want a reformed trying to be bad boy, a wounded neophyte to the game of love, steamy sex or a story that is sure to bring a smile, this book will not disappoint.
