Book Review - Beverly Preston - No More Wasted Time

No More Wasted Time 

Book Blurb

Life isn’t about tomorrow ~ Life is about today
After losing her husband to a sudden heart attack, Tess Mathews escapes to Bora Bora to lay her husband, and sorrow to rest. What she doesn’t expect is a new beginning.
 
Tom Clemmins is an A-list actor whose life revolves around work and an onslaught of women. He travels to Bora Bora for a much-needed break. Tom has a few ideas of how he’ll enjoy his vacation, but love isn’t one of them. Until he sees Tess.
 
Reserving a private shark-feeding excursion to scatter her husband’s ashes into the lagoon, Tess is furious when Mr. Hollywood bribes his way onto the boat, leaving her no other choice but to share the boat ride.
 
Tess is torn between tremendous guilt and zealous lust when their boat ride turns into a week full of romance and desire neither thought imaginable. Utterly smitten with a woman for the first time in his life, Tom casts his commitment phobia aside and whisks Tess off to Malibu where he introduces her as his “girlfriend” on the red carpet.
 
As the paparazzi besiege, can Tess survive the media blitz that ensues in order to find her second chance at love?

Natalie's Review

Overall i really liked this book,  there was only one thing i didn't like but i will get to that later.  Lets start with Tess, she is a strong woman who has had her heart broken by the death of her husband,  a year later and she is off to Bora Bora to scatter his ashes,  here she meets Tom Clemmings IT actor who graces all pages of the tabloids with his on and off screen escapades. The moment she meets him she is overwhelmed with attraction which soon turns to guilt.

The main Characters are portrayed well Tess is likable and as soon as you start the story you are rooting for a happy ending for her,  She is a loving mother of three who seems to have lost her identity due to the death of her husband.  Tom is caring and kind and the sexual chemistry between the two is fantastic.  

The relationship between the two soon grows and has you hooked to the pages waiting to see how it all goes.

Ok my negative for the book was the pacing, it all seemed to happen so quickly i had to keep going back to figure out how much time had lapsed,  i felt like i couldn't keep up and was confused as to how much time had actually lapsed by the time it finished. 

I think this book was a 4* book,  i really did think it was a nice story,  and i recommend it if you like easy going reads without the over the top angst.  I'm Off to start the second book in the series Shayla's Story
