Julie Joseph dreads spending Christmas in Florida with her cranky elderly parents. Yet that changes when she arrives at Sun Tower and meets the eligible bachelor whose equally quarrelsome parents have just moved into the penthouse.
Thomas Briggs IV is hardly the type Julie has dated in the past: he's tall, handsome, and out-of-this-world wealthy. He's also the son of the CEO of Pilgrim Mutual Insurance, where Julie works as a copywriter.
Julie has just a few days to date Thomas before they both have to return to the ice and snow blanketing the Northeast. But there's one big problem: Julie's rival for Thomas's attention happens to be her gorgeous, but mean-spirited boss at Pilgrim Mutual.
Can Julie overcome the odds and beat out Amanda Ford to win Thomas's heart? Love on Longboat Key is a sweet holiday tale about finding romance on the beach.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Julie Joseph reluctantly escapes the brutal Massachusetts winter to spend a Christmas holiday with her parents in Florida. She arrives in the sunny clime as single woman on the verge of 30 with no prospects in sight. Everything changes on a fateful visit to the local botanical garden. Has she met the man of her dreams or another complication? I really enjoyed the slow pace of the budding relationship in the beginning. Attempting to be friends before venturing into the land of sex and relationships is sensible and real. The intimate moments were tender and non-descriptive, which was appealing to someone who does not enjoy the romance genre. Are there things I would change? Absolutely. However, I found this to be a quick and enjoyable read.
