Ten years ago, his family’s expectations for a high-society marriage sent housekeeper’s daughter Jasmine running. Can one week in paradise bring them back together?

Jasmine and Freddie's fairytale romance came to an end ten years ago when she realised she would never meet his parent's expectations for their heir. Unable to maintain a relationship in the years since because no-one could ever match up to her first love, she signs up for an exclusive dating agency - and it seems Freddie is still everything she ever wanted.
It's summery, it's spicy, it's a fabulous second chance romance set in the gorgeous Seychelles. From the titular surprise reunion, it's clear that Jasmine and Freddie are into each other, and under the heartbreak the feelings linger. Their connection jumps off the page but despite the physical attraction, they also delve into what broke them the last time. I would've liked a few more happy memories - after all, they did grow up together - but what we got made their relationship believable even given the long separation and short timeframe of the reunion.
I liked how they explored that this wasn't a twist of fate, but the dating preferences they both submitted were based in each other, the lost first love, and the only true coincidence is that they signed up for the same agency. There's some tough conversations and a lot of ground to cover, and the resolution is more discussed than shown, but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing two people find their way back to each other after too long.

She's been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.
A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she's not glued to her laptop, she's wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
