    A fun, sometimes funny, romance that pulled on my heart strings.

    Another hit!!  After taking some time off from his family, Tony

    Another hit!! 

    After taking some time off from his family, Tony is required to make an appearance at the family’s annual skiing trip before they start to get more concerned about his absence.  He may be known as a playboy, but he is bound and determined to leave his old ways behind him.  The problem is his family will be suspicious if he shows up alone and disappointed if he brings his usual flavor, ala bimbo.  So he comes up with a plan, take a woman they wouldn’t expect and one he thinks he can trust…Haven Pelletier.

    OMG – what is Tony Sherman thinking?  He wants her to play his girlfriend at a family function!  This can only end badly on two counts.  One, she will be a laughing stalk.  She is not tall, skinny or ditzy.  Two, though she might despise him, he does stir something in her.  Not good for a woman who has responsibilities and a heart to guard.

    Two total opposites are playing their parts, but as the weekend unfolds, things become clear; neither are what the other expected and their passions run hot and high.  Haven is a breath of fresh air for Tony and his family, but she has many things to consider and to protect; mainly her daughter.  While the relationship is at its peak, disaster destroys their budding love.  Will the damage be repairable?

    I am going to first say is hot damn.  Tony’s Haven was amazing.  This is fantasy come to life; a beyond gorgeous man falling for a pleasantly plump woman and not a super model.  Most time when you read such a storyline you think, yeah right – that will happen.  But what made it special and believable is that Ms. Eastwick wrote the novel in a way where it really could happen.  Haven is a beautiful person inside and out, no matter how large she is and as Tony got to know her, he realized just how special she was and wanted the whole package.  No instant attraction, just the gentle progression of true romance.

    Ms. Eastwick also did a great job portraying how hard it can be for the not so perfect person.  She made my heart break for Haven and rejoice at Tony’s determination and patience.  I was unsure of him after reading Hunting JC, but he has redeemed himself in my eyes.

    Tony’s Haven is a wonderful read that, once again, I couldn’t put down.  Just a note to you, don’t pick this up late in the evening.  It is a definite page turner and I was riveted from page one until the very last word.  Now that is a true mark of a marvelous book.
