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?
No more wasted time was a book about finding love twice in a lifetime. Tess was fortunate enough to fall in love and stay in love for 25 years with her husband. But a sudden heart attack took all that away from her. Yet she is blessed enough to find it again with someone very unexpected. One of Hollywood's sexiest movie stars.
I tend to read a lot of YA but there are times that I need a good adult romance book. And I couldn't have picked a better book. I really enjoyed reading about Tess and Tom and their chemistry together. They have a VERY sexy and hot together.
No more wasted time is an example of how instant love works for me. Though in reality I wouldn't take chances with love or dating. But when Tess and Tom did, it worked for them and worked for me. Preston wrote her characters believable. Tess and Tom had tension and they had chemistry. I enjoyed reading the development of their relationship. Tess' children were also in this novel, which made it more believable. Bora Bora definitely played a part in their sexy relationship.
I really enjoyed this novel. No more wasted time, is a perfect sexy naughty read. No more wasted time gets a 5 stars from me and a definite Good Choice for Reading.
