Bayshore Book, Book 1
Synopsis: Grayson Daly and I aren’t just rivals. We’re enemies.
Born minutes apart on the same day in the same hospital, our parents thought this meant we were somehow destined to be together. We knew were we just destined to beat each other.
Competition boiled over until junior year, when the cold war turned into an unexpected peace offering. Maybe my hormones allowed me to notice his broad shoulders, stormy gray-blue eyes, and soccer star’s chiseled frame. But after I fell for him…he stomped all over my heart.
Ten years later, I’m at the top of the realty game in Bayshore and Grayson is just a distant memory. Until he shows up from NYC, his ego bigger than a skyscraper, and asks me to sell the house he recently inherited.
It’s easy to say no. Even though I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to dangle from in strong arm battles.
But I forgot that Gray doesn’t take no for an answer. And that he isn’t content unless he’s defeating me.
He butts into my evenings on the boat. Ropes me into water skiing battles. Even shows up at the bar and creates a scene when I’m scouting a date to the upcoming Bicentennial Ball.
It’s almost like he’s gunning to win me.
But if he wins, that means I lose.
And I’m not ready to cede victory just yet.
Review: After reading the synopsis, I was curious to discover the story. How can we resist a story where two people confront each other constantly from the time they were little until the day they have feelings for each other?
Hazel and Grayson have always tried to compete against the other. Always! But here they are, they also broke each other’s hearts. The years passed and Hazel became the city’s real estate queen and Grayson moved to New York a long time ago. He is back for a month after his grandmother’s death. He wants to sell the house, and Hazel is the only person who can do it and she is determined to say no. Yet she became very beautiful and him? He makes her heart beat faster. But her life is here in the small town, while Grayson’s is in New York.
I had a good time with the story and it was touching to see our two characters reunite after so many years, to see Grayson trying to face his family, but most of all to see them trying to understand what’s going on between them. It was a nice reading, and I must admit that I am curious to find Grayson’s family again to discover the story of his brothers.
A perfect novel for a light moment.
