Format: ebook


In the summer of 1990, Rachel Weber spent a week down on the Florida coast, soaking up the sun's rays while she waited for her life to begin. It was there that she met Dean Sherman, a handsome, muscular soldier with blue eyes. The two spent a week together full of champagne kisses that only ended when Operation Desert Storm forced Dean to choose between his duty and his love. He chose duty.

Twenty years later, Rachel figured it was just summer love, but she never forgot those eyes. As personal assistant to powerful billionaire Jack Saunders, she never expected Dean to walk into her office after being hired as Jack's personal bodyguard. Even though she had spent the last two decades trying to forget Dean, she found herself falling for him once again.

When fate forced both Rachel and Dean to choose yet again between love and duty, Rachel had to decide between the man she had always loved and the family that had become her life. She knew she couldn't have both, but she knew she wouldn't be happy with just one. Would she choose love, or be forever haunted by the memory of those Champagne Kisses?

This thrilling romance novel brings the cast of the bestselling novels Saltwater Kisses and Rainwater Kisses back for an epic and timeless love story.

My Review

I got this Kindle book for free on Amazon, and I always love reading romances. I liked this simple love story. It didn't go too into depth about the characters, which I would have liked to know a little more, but at the same time, it still worked with the story. I liked that it flashed back to various time periods as it gave the story a unique feel. It wasn't just that they fell in love and lived happily ever after. There were some struggles that each character had to face. However, a negative aspect to this book is that it didn't go into enough detail about the characters pasts. I was left wanting to know about their childhoods, what they were like outside of each other and their work. I also felt like this story was about younger people, not those in their 40's. I think maybe it was just the way the characters were written. Whatever the case, it was a pretty good story overall.
