Her heart is at loose ends...but he knows how to tie her desire up in knots.
Ava Hollins is three martinis deep in Operation Forget My Life. She escaped D.C. to drown her problems in Virgin Islands UV rays and alcohol-to forget her ex. As in ex-cheating-boyfriend. Ex-boss. Ex-job.
The resort's charity man auction? No thanks. Men do not factor into Operation FML. Except her best friend has her own plan-win Ava a love slave. Before Ava knows it, she's won the resort's DEFCON-ONE-hot bartender, Bret.
If only she knew what to do with him-a man who turns out not to be a bartender at all. Luckily, behind that wicked smile and those night-ocean eyes lies a wealth of knowledge. He knows exactly how to chart a course that'll tie her desire up in knots and break her losing streak-but hopefully, not her heart.
Riptide is a stand-alone novella in the Elite Doms of Washington world.
