Welcome to Paradise

Welcome to Paradise, Book 1

Charlotte Hill is returning home after being away for fifteen long years. As a major singing sensation, she has made it big professionally, but hasn't forgotten her roots. She is ready to give Nate Bishop a little bit of payback. After he took her virginity fifteen years ago, he crushed Charlotte- in a big way. With the prompting of her friend, Charlotte decides that revenge is a dish best served... hot. She'll seduce Nate and then she'll be the one to walk away this time. What she doesn't count on is that her emotions are still there. Nate has missed Charlotte ever since he said goodbye. She looked past the rough exterior and loved the unknown-to-the-masses Nate. He isn't sure what to expect when Charlotte comes back to town. When he and Charlotte start to hang out again, they both realize that the love is still there and both want to see where things will take them. When Nate reads an email from Charlotte's friend and assistant, he thinks that Charlotte has played him and set him up to look like a fool. Welcome to Paradise has a good bit of angst and a few "shake your head" moments that I particularly enjoyed. I really like Elle Kennedy's ability to flesh out the emotional 2x4 on both the readers as well as the characters.

Book Blurb for Welcome to Paradise

Revenge can be sweet. Forgiveness is sweeter.

Singing sensation Charlotte Hill can’t wait for her high school reunion. She’s out to give Nate Bishop—the man who walked away with her virginity—the sexiest ride of his life. Then give him a heaping dose of the same medicine he gave her fifteen years ago.

Stomp all over his heart as she walks out the door.

Nate has never forgotten the green-eyed redhead who set his body on fire, the one girl who saw past his bad reputation. The heat of those memories still warms his thoughts, even after all these years. After he did the right thing and let her go, rather than let his love chain her to a town she despised.

Now she’s back in Paradise looking sexier than ever, and Nate finds himself powerless to keep his distance. And Charlotte, in spite of her resolve, can’t believe she’s so easily falling under his spell. Yet mind-blowing sex doesn’t bury the past. It unearths painful emotions too long buried. Emotions that could stamp out rekindled love before it catches flame…

Warning: Contains a reformed bad boy and a newly minted bad girl with revenge on her mind, feuding families, dirty little secrets, and a lot of dirty sex.
