Sex Becomes Her
A destination wedding in Hawaii after a series of secrets spilled by a distasteful ex, Eliza is intrigued by the sexy seatmate and decides that perhaps it is time to get some of her own back. An intriguing set up with some seriously sexy moments, but I couldn’t really connect to the characters.
Eliza keeps an iron-grip on her thoughts and hurt from the ‘damage’ done by her ex – and that lost me in her almost complete boldness and determination to experience what she thinks she was missing. Add the rather buttoned up persona that she shows the world, and I just had difficulty resolving the two.
Chandler is divorced, also attending the wedding and while he was not disturbed by her advances – he was one of the really ‘nice’ guys. He sees value in Eliza, and wants her to see that too, and hopes that he can convince her a relationship is possible.
With other characters adding their two cents in, to Eliza’s ‘deep dark secret’ that really wasn’t – it was a good read, but not one that would encourage me to read on in the series.

Eliza Jackson has always been a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, so it’s no surprise that when she’s asked to attend her friend’s black-tie destination wedding, she’s in a panic. Ever since her last relationship blew up in a frenzy of rumors about her sexual preferences, Eliza has been quite satisfied to be a celibate hermit. But as she’s forced from her self-imposed solitude, she decides to make the most of it. For this next week, Eliza can let her inhibitions go without fear of recrimination. And when she comes home? Nobody has to know that she played pretend. A perfect solution, or so she thinks.
Chandler Morse would never have considered flying all the way to Hawaii for a wedding if anyone but his cousin had asked. But he owed the bastard for saving his life, so he packed his bags and off he went, leaving his frigid ex-wife to pick over the remains of his life. When he laid eyes on the laughing brunette whose pieces didn’t quite fit together, he found himself drawn to her. He tried to tell himself it was his background as a private investigator that drew him to the puzzle, but in reality, their chemistry was too intense to ignore.
Eliza is thrilled to have found someone that can keep up with her adventurous appetites. She and Chandler are much more compatible in bed than she’d ever dreamed, but she still doesn’t dare tell him about her darkest sexual fantasies. And despite her best intentions, Eliza finds herself falling for him. But going back home doesn’t solve the problem, because Chandler is determined to pursue a relationship with her, and she can’t bring herself to say no. And when he learns the truth about her forbidden desires, she fears he’ll run just like everyone else does, and shatter her heart beyond repair. But more than her heart is on the line when Chandler discovers her past. Eliza will have to choose between the person she is, and the one she always wanted to be.
