Making a Splash by Joanne Rock In this Murphy family series, Jack is back from his Navy military service and he has been thrown together with the woman he left 5 years ago, just walked out on her and joined up. She has had some dates with others but nothing that lasted. She wants a B&B in Bar Harbor, Maine-to get away from all the family. They've been nice to her over the years including her in with other family activities. She also plans to survive by running her water sports business. She had wanted Keith's input on the B&B but he though Jack could do with a vacation by taking the yacht up to Maine while he takes the sailboat down south to try to sell it. Love the family activities: the men sports and how they joke around with one another. Love the water travels and it does sound like a trip I'd like to take someday. Alicia LeBlanc grew up next door to the Murphys and was romantically involved with Jack before he joined up with the Navy. They are becoming sexually involved on the trip up north. She just wanted a second opinion not a love affair. She just wants to get on with her life. He offered to loan her the money for her dreams. He finally opens up to her and explains why he joined the military... He was going overseas and visiting influential people while disguising it for company business of global properties. Now that he's back his dad is trying to persuade him to work with the family resort business again. They make a deal on their journey that the other has to answer all the questions posed to them. He's not told her his plans for all the bars he's been buying up and she's not telling him why she wants to buy the B&B 3 states away. Winner takes all.

In Chatham, Massachusetts, Keith Murphy worries about his older brother Jack who has just completed his obligation to the Navy. Since returning from Bahrain Jack is very taciturn and refuses to return to his VP position at the family owned Murphy Resorts. Jack even scowled at the party celebrating his sibling Ryan's engagement bash on the Cape. Keith knows his sibling does not have PTSD, but instead has a female woe whose name is Alicia LeBlanc. Keith has a plan as he has been providing environmental consulting services to Alicia who hopes to open up a B&B in Bar Harbor, Maine. He has Alicia on his boat waiting to meet with him. Instead Keith swaps boats with Jack. As Jack and Alicia see each other for the first time in years, their spark remains equatorial hot. He ran from love once before and she fears he will break her heart again. This time he runs towards love, but must persuade her he will never run away from her again. This is an engaging second chance at love contemporary romance. The lead couple is a fine duet as he has plenty to make up for in the trust department, but has the edge of believing she loves him. With a strong New England backdrop and a warm caring family for support, fans will enjoy this at sea Wrong Bed Again and Again tale and look forward to Keith sailing Jack's boat to Charleston.

We didn't have the usual first meet jitters, or the pages of who are you, what do you do, what do you believe in. With this book, the characters already know all of that about each other, which is refreshing because the story jumps right into the action of rediscovering what Alicia and Jack (main characters) could have again. I love Alicia because she was a strong and determined woman who wanted to make it on her own. Her struggles to get where she got was honorable. Then there's Jack whom I think might be my favorite character. He knew in the back of his mind all along he wanted Alicia but didn't recognize it. Then when he does, he makes mistakes after mistakes. I don't want to spoil what happens but I will say my gut tightened up a couple times and I felt sorry for him when he unknowingly made the mistakes. Picture a man trying to do the right thing but ends up doing the wrong things. Even with all the mistakes between the two of them, the 'heat' was fantastic. Like with the rest of the story they already knew each other so instead of the usual unsure moments when it comes to certain scenes Jack and Alicia were already comfortable with each other. Besides the characters - the scenes, the actual plot, dialogue and everything in between was beautifully written. I read this book in one sitting. I couldn't reach the end fast enough.
