The night that changed everything… 
After being dumped by her fiancé and losing her shot at TV stardom, Bindi Paxton just wants to get out of town. But there's no escaping the past—not even on the beautiful Seychelles Islands. And when her attraction to former Las Vegas Slayers heir Santino Franco culminates in a night of sizzling passion, she has to fight her feelings for a man who could hurt her deeper than any other has before. 
Santino came to the islands to find the man responsible for the injury that ended his pro-football career. Ending up in bed with Bindi is a mistake they both regret. Except he now needs her help to find his fugitive father. And—heaven help him—he's starting to fall for the stunning Sin City reporter. He can't change their history…but he'd give anything for one more night, and maybe forever, in her arms.

My Review: 
Honestly, I had a bit of a time getting into this book.  Partly because I was reading it intermittently, during breaks at my full time job and partly because I am prejudice against girls named Bindi {sorry to all of the Bindis of the world}.  After chapter Two, it was smooth sailing, even with the intermittent stopping.

I enjoyed how the story line progressed.  It wasn't just a hook up, weep, hook up, marry, weep story.  You were engaged with the characters and wanted them to find their way to one another.  Since the main characters hated one another in the beginning, I wasn't sure this was going to be a love store between them at first.  As the story progressed, I kept rooting for them to realize their chemistry.  The way it was written, it almost seemed like their feelings for each other was tangible.

While this book is number 4 in the Blue Dynasty Series, I had no problem picking up in the midst of the series.  The book is definitely a stand alone hit.  I cannot wait to read the previous three!

My Rating:

Overall ~ 4 out of 5
First Impression of Characters ~ 3 out of 5
Character Development ~ 5 out of 5
Plot ~ 4 out of 5
Book Flow ~ 4 out of 5
Ending ~ 5 out of 5
