Description

The resort and spa that grew out of the hurricane-ravaged Barefoot Bay is now home to the “Barefoot Bay Brides” -- a destination wedding service specializing in dreamy “I do’s” on the beach.  The company is run by three women who are gifted in the art of creating a perfect wedding day...but haven’t yet found their own happily ever after.  All that’s about to change...

Up first, destination wedding consultant Willow Ambrose  has fought a battle with the scale for much of her life, but she has finally won the war.  By putting her past behind her and cutting off all contact with anyone who knew her before and, of course, controlling everything she can, Willow has carved out a new body and a new life.  But when she comes face to face with someone who left an indelible mark on her heart years before, all that threatens to crumble.

Navy SEAL Nick Hershey is on medical leave, doing a friend a favor as a stand in “man of honor” at a beach wedding.  He might not be that interested in the nuptials, but the wedding planner catches his eye the minute they meet.  When he realizes Willow is really a girl he knew in college -- and a girl he unintentionally hurt to the core -- he knows he has some making up to do.

Willow has learned how to beat every temptation...but Nick’s  sweet as candy kisses just might be the one thing she can’t resist.   But the closer they get, the more the past threatens to tear them apart.  Can they overcome their history in order to have a forever future?

  • Second Chance At Love

    This is a very emotional but entertaining read. A Second Chance and Romance for two people that meet over a Decade ago and are brought back together by fate some might say. Willow Ambrose is very sweet and strong all at the same time. Navy SEAL Nick Hershey is crazy sexy and hug-able all at the same time. Enjoyed the way they are very adult about dealing with the past and the possibility of a future even though neither of them was really looking for forever at the beginning. I love the Beach setting and the many fun an outrageous characters in this beautifully created world. So Ready to read more and visit this awesome place called Barefoot Bay again.
  • Good read.

    I loved Barefoot in White. The story line was remarkable. There were quite a few instances of bad grammar or mistakes overlooked by the copy editor, but, all-in-all, it was a remarkable read about overcoming ones past.

  • Relatable heroine

    I'm a fan of Roxanne St. Claire's Barefoot Bay books, but I especially connected with Willow, the heroinein Barefoot in White. Although she's lost weight, she still struggles with body image and her sense of self worth. Her internal conflict impacts her ability to trust and connect with Nick Hershey. The author's ability to take an everyday issue (body image) and weave it into an emotionally compelling love story genuinely moved me.

    It is a good story but I found it to be a slow read. I do not enjoy reading poorly edited books and this is one of them. From time to time I encountered a sentence that had to be reread because a word was either missing or the wrong one used but the worse was a section where Willie's outfit was described differently in the same scene when there was no change in costume.

    I loved Barefoot in White. Second chance romances are some of my favorites and Roxanne St. Clair spins a great one. Neither Nick nor Willow expected to run into the other when they did, and it even took Nick a moment to realize who she was. Each had been affected by their previous interactions, which fell short of intimacy, and Nick spends most of the book convincing Willow that he's the right man for her. I love Nick as a character. I love how Willow even points out to him, "you're always walking around naked." And he was. It's how she first caught Nick, performing a naked karaoke performance in his hotel suite. What a great way to run into each other again! And Nick spends most of the rest of the book trying to get Willow to take her clothes off while she's always telling him to put his on. This book has sweet moments, intense moments, and even some laugh-out-loud moments. Wonderful introduction to the Barefoot Brides and I look forward to reading the stories of Willow's wonderful business partners and friends.

    Stupid book. The female character spends a lot of time telling the male character to write the truth but this book is so over the top ridiculous that it isn't enjoyable. I didn't like any of the characters and the storyline was predictable. Even though, it was unrealistic you knew exactly what was going to happen. I won't read another book by this author...not interested enough to care what happens to these characters. Don't waste your time.

    The story itself was pretty good. The sum it up and end it, really bad, not realistic at all. The author created a real problem for the h and her solution was total fantasy, it made me so disconnect from the story I ended up skim reading the rest, I didn’t care about the h/H or the resolution. too bad.
