One of the best books I have read in a favourite genre.

Heather is thirty-two years old; she is married and a stay-home mum to three young children. As the story opens, she is about to leave on a brief vacation. Her husband, Jeff, has sensed she is worn out and in need of a break, and he has booked her three nights at a resort in Cancun.

This is the story of those three nights, of the man she meets on the way to the resort and of her affair.

Cheating on her husband is not in Heather's nature. She meets Damon on a shuttle from the airport to the resort, then again at a bar after she arrives. He is charming, cocky and gorgeous, and their banter is marvellous. Heather is up-front about being married and repeatedly states that she will not sleep with a man other than her husband.

Of course, she does. That's what we're here for. They fit a lot into their three days, and the sex is sensational.

This is also the story of Heather's return home to Jeff and of the effect her vacation has on their marriage.

Author Ben Boswell says in his introduction that he went into this book wanting to write "realistic fiction with believable characters and real emotions". I think he has done a great job, and I love that the story resolves in a believable, happily-ever-after ending for all. ( )
