My relationship with Xander is nothing more than a way to ease some of the fallout we’re both experiencing in our careers.
The lie is intended to be as harmless as the spontaneous trip we’ve decided to take—an adventure of a lifetime to a tropical island.
It’s the perfect escape to nurse our wounded egos. How can we be stressed with nothing but sunshine and palm trees surrounding us?
At first, our conversations are innocent. Our touches casual. Our glances fleeting.
We aren’t supposed to grow closer.
Or kiss—we definitely aren’t supposed to kiss.
And before I realize it, what I thought would be a regular summer turns into so much more. Right up until our blissful bubble bursts from a dose of reality much stronger than our umbrella cocktails.
Which begs the question… are we a vacation fling, or can we finally make our relationship official?

Just a girl on a plane to Maui with her brother’s best friend.
I absolutely adored these two. After some things happened in Sam’s life and she admits she needs break. Xander whisks her away to Maui. A place were they can just lay low and relax on a beach. What they didn’t expect is each other.
Sam and Xander have known each other for years. Xander is best friends with her older brother. Them hanging out isn’t weird. However, being in a tropical paradise leads to them noticing each other in a different light. The chemistry between these two is absolutely fantastic! I couldn’t get enough of them. I loved everything about their relationship and how drawn they were to each other.
The random animals that pop up throughout this story is absolutely hilarious and come at the worst times for Sam and Xander, especially a wild pig.
