Overview

Tony Sherman may be a modern day Adonis and a well-known ladies' man, but hiding beneath his carefree, playboy persona is a man no one really knows. He keeps his desire to protect all those he loves from being seen by anyone, particularly his family. Fate intervenes when he uses his charm to beg a favor from a co-worker, a women as unaffected by his charisma as she is by his looks.

Haven Pelletier is anything but the kind of woman usually found on Tony's arm or in his bed. She's mousy and rubenesque, unmoved by his Adonis appearance. But when circumstances bring them together, she sees right through his tarnished armor—to the true man underneath.

As Haven learns more about Tony, she discovers a man who might just steal her heart if she lets him. Can Tony be the knight in shining armor Haven needs? Or will the secrets in his past keep them both from finding happiness?

Editorial Reviews

Just Erotic Romance Reviews - Stefani Clayton
I feel like I won the lottery! Tony's Haven is an amazing story and I am so jealous of Haven I can’t see straight! Really, while Haven’s character was great, Tony is knock-your-socks-off-perfect! These two have chemistry without being over the top, which made the sexual aspect all the more powerful. They had passion, fun, and enough chemistry to curl your toes. The secondary characters were great, even the secretary was fun. I loved it! From the first page I was hooked.
Night Owl Review - M. Yadkny
This story really does captivate as the two get to know each other and the Sherman family continues its meddling ways with surprising reactions to the unlikely pair. The range of emotion in the dialogue is just the same as I enjoyed from the first and the update on Hunter and J.C. is a wonderful treat. The author has such great quality in her writing that I really cannot wait to read the next story in the Sherman family drama.

I love the way Ms. Eastwick approached Tony and Haven’s romance. While Haven is understandably attracted to Tony in the beginning she has quite a few negative feelings about him. Tony must win over Haven and in doing so the reader gets a glimpse into the depth of his character. This playboy has a big heart he just needs the right woman to complete him. Haven and Tony make a beautiful couple and have some sizzling bedroom scenes! I love the complication of Tony’s brother Spencer in their romance
Sensual Reads - Emily Cata
The second in the Sherman Family series, Tony’s Haven is a marvelous story. I loved that Haven is a full-figured, tough-as-nails woman who is dealing with the cards she was dealt, she is the epitome of a real woman. Tony is a fantastic character, he has hidden his true self from others for so long that when Haven enters into his life he becomes vulnerable for the first time in his life. A beautifully written story.

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

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.

Sometimes love comes in a package we least expect to find it in. Tony Sherman may be a modern day Adonis and a well-known ladies' man, but hiding beneath his carefree, playboy persona is a man who knows how to be discreet. He keeps his desire to protect all those he loves from being seen by anyone, particularly his family. Fate intervenes when he uses his charm to beg a favor from a co-worker, a woman as unaffected by his charisma as she is by his looks. Haven Pelletier is anything but the kind of woman usually found on Tony's arm or in his bed. She's mousy and rubenesque, unmoved by his Adonis appearance. But when circumstances bring them together, she sees right through his tarnished armor¿to the true man underneath. As Haven learns more about Tony, she discovers a man who might just steal her heart if she lets him. Can Tony be the knight in shining armor Haven needs? Or will the secrets in his past keep them both from finding happiness? Tony's Haven is a great read with a fantastic hero. Tony is just the right mixture of ¿too good to be true¿ and flawed man making him a near-perfect leading man. I wanted to hate him a little at the beginning of the book but his charm won me over long before it did Haven. Our heroine was easy to relate to and even though I really enjoyed her solid personality, I think I enjoyed her so-called flaws even more so. I loved the Sherman family and all of Tony and Havan¿s coworkers as every character was well developed and added to the story. I will say I did find it frustrating that at a size 18 our heroine was considered so surprisingly big and I found it a sad commentary on the way society thinks but was so very happy to see that it really had no impact on Tony¿s attraction to her. This author¿s tone and style kept me highly entertained and I cannot wait to see what else she has to offer as I love reading stories that have me laughing out loud.

Tony is a protector. To get his family off his back, he propositions Haven with money for a weekend with his family. She does not like him. He knows she does not like him so both figure there will be no problems. Tony, however, is attracted to Haven as he works more closely with her and as he gets to know her outside of work. The downside to this all is the non-fraternization clause in Haven's contract. I liked Tony and Haven. They fight a lot. Haven does not pull her punches with him. Tony's not used to that but likes it and finds himself more attracted than he expected or wanted. He finally figures out that Haven is who he wants but she is furious with him because of company policy. I liked that Tony's family gathers around her when trouble turns up. Tony has to make it right because his brother Spencer is waiting in the wings for Haven. I also liked that Tony supports Haven by his actions. I liked this family and will be reading more of them.
