KISSING EDEN by T.A. Foster

Have you ever thought of taking a vacation alone? I mean step on a plane, check into your hotel, and lie on the beach completely and utterly alone. No? Me either, but then right before senior spring break I got dumped.
Something about break ups makes you do things you didn’t want to do, and try things you didn’t know you were capable of.
That’s how I ended up at the Palm Palace.
That’s how I met Grey.
That’s how my spring break turned into the most unforgettable week of my life.

T.A. Foster once spent a monthlong spring break on South Padre Island, where she soaked in the Texas sun, beach, and learned what real Texas country music is. Sometimes fiction does spring from reality.
She grew up catching rays and chasing waves along the North Carolina Outer Banks and now resides in the state with her adventurous pilot husband, two children, and two canine kiddos.
T.A. has an undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a graduate degree in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University. When she’s not chasing her two-legged and four-legged children or trying to escape for date night, you can find her reading, writing, or planning her next beach trip.

Eden Brady gets dumped by her jerk of a boyfriend just days before spring break. But she decides to take her already paid for trip. After a bunch of mishaps along the way, Eden ends up at the Palm Palace and Grey's front door. Grey is a hot, stubborn, hard headed, a bit rude, flirty handyman.
"...Ok, I get it. You're not Mr. Customer Service. Can I check in? I've had a really terrible day, and I could use a hot shower and something to eat..."
Palm Palace is a hot mess. Grey is working hard to try to fix it up and get it ready for the second half of spring break tourists. Eden is trying to pull herself up and do some soul searching but finds herself constantly distracted by a hot handyman.
"...This is so messed up, Grey. I hurt you and you hurt me. For the last few weeks, we've just been drifting in our own worlds, mad and broken..."
Can Grey get the Palm Palace up and running before his reservations start checking in? Can Eden find her own happiness and heal after her break up? And what will happen when she returns to North Carolina after spring break is over?
TA Foster knows how to write a sweet and compelling romance novel. Her characters are wonderful and draw you right in to their stories. I really enjoyed this book and the smiles and laughs that it give me. I gladly give this book a Nerd Alert A+ or 5 stars!
