Fresh off a breakup, Sienna James doesn’t expect to find the star of all of her adolescent fantasies at the exotic resort where she’s holidaying. And she certainly doesn’t expect her ex to show up to convince her it’s not over. Faced with two hot men offering to fulfill her every fantasy, what’s a woman supposed to do?

Josh Lye never forgot Sienna. He wants her just as much today as he did all those years ago. They’re adults now, and there’s nothing to stop them getting together—except her ex, who has the wildest proposition.

When Ben Cowley arrives at Bandicoot Cove, he’s determined to win Sienna back. He knows she still loves him, but he also sees the way she looks at Josh.

Sleeping with both men at the same time in order to decide between them could be a recipe for disaster. Or it could be the start of something unexpected.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I’m gonna be totally honest with you — this novella surprised me. It was filthy and hot, which wasn’t shocking given the other novellas in this series. What got me was that it also gave a fair number of feels. I’m impressed.

I want to be very cautious about how I approach this review because I don’t want to give anything away. I’d have been upset if I knew how things ended before I started reading and I don’t want to risk doing that to anyone else, so I’m going to keep it fairly short here. I really liked (most of) the characters in this novella. Things were SUPER complicated between Sienna, Josh and Ben. They were also blisteringly hot, which was to be expected. These characters definitely brought the sexy — and the dirty talk — when they were together. But, as I said above, they also brought a few feels in the process. Sienna had a choice to make and it wasn’t going to be an easy one — the childhood crush or the recent ex. I felt her conflict and saw how hard each guy was fighting for her. I knew which guy I was pulling for — and no, I’m not going to tell you — but I was rather happy with the ending.

After enjoying this story as much as I did, I’m definitely looking forward to reading the other book by Jess Dee — a new-to-me author — in this Bandicoot Cove series.


“There’s something about the air out here. The freedom. It’s like magic, intoxicatingly so. It makes you do things you’d never do in Newcastle.”

“Enjoy his kiss, princess. But don’t mistake his mouth for the one that’s about to show you fireworks.”

About Jess Dee

It doesn't take much to make Jess happy: Yummy food, her husband and her two sons will do it. Add a good book to the picture and you have one content writer!

Jess lives in Sydney, where she strolls along the gorgeous, seaside cliff tops and watches the waves crashing against the rocks below. In a place like that, it's hard not to think of romance and passion. There's always inspiration for another love story.

Have you read any of Jess’s other books?
Any recommendations?
