He’d be a fool to fall for his long-legged, barefoot employee. But bad decisions have never stopped him before…
Successful businessman and single father, Nate Crawford, doesn’t need any more complications. That’s why he’s moved his business – and his life – to a small beach town. He’s expecting sun, sea and tranquility, but what he gets is a whirlwind in the form of town sweetheart, Ally Sutton.
Ally’s used to dealing with heartache. But losing the café she’s owned for years is the final straw. Being offered a new job feels like a lifeline – that is until she meets her much-older, and impossibly handsome new boss.
In the space of a few weeks everything changes. And when an accident forces them closer, Nate and Ally can’t ignore the fascination between them any longer. But neither of them are ready for the storm they’re about to unleash.
**She’s Like the Wind is the second book in the Angel Sands series, set in a small beach town on the California coast. If you like a heartwarming read that’s low on angst and big on feels, this stand-alone romance is for you.**
Ally bit down a smile and looked at Nate, who was still hovering in the doorway.
“It’s okay. You don’t have to paint my nails. I can probably manage if I bend over enough.”
He looked at the bottle Riley had shoved in his hands. “It’s a nice color.”
“Riley chose it.”
He took a step inside then hesitated, looking over at Ally. “Is it okay if I come in?” he asked.
“Of course it is. It’s your house.”
“But it’s your room.”
His words made her feel warm. As though she finally belonged somewhere.
“Come in. It’s nice to have the company.”
He walked up to the bed, and looked down at her feet. “Let’s do this thing,” he said, sitting down in the space his daughter had vacated. “I don’t want to incur the wrath of Riley.”
“Do you even know how to paint nails?” Ally asked, trying to keep her voice even. It felt so intimate, having him here in the room when she was wearing only a tank and sleep shorts. God only knew how much more intimate it would feel once he touched her.
And if he painted her toes, he’d definitely have to touch her.
She wasn’t sure how she felt about that.

She’s Like The Wind by Carrie Elks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
You know, we’ve always hope for that summer dream.
Those lazy, calm, happy, lovely days.
Angel sands it’s the perfect scenery, a small town, everyone knows each other and they live one day after another, breathing the place with heart and soul.
Every change, every small event is taken seriously and everyone takes part and does whatever they can to make that change better.
You feel it if you’re born there or if you moved there.
That’s life what happened to this couple, Nate and Ally are from different worlds, but they take the chance, they need and eventually want the same, before they know it, but can only take the jump together.
No spoilers for you, wouldn’t you want to know this slow burn aching to explode? I guess you need to read it and then let me know if I’m true.
I’m giving it five stars just because it made me dream of that special place hidden in my heart.
