You can’t run away from commitment forever …

Adam Hamilton-Shaw has more reason than most to avoid commitment. Living on a houseboat in the Severn Valley, his dream is to sail into the sunset preferably with a woman waiting in every port. But lately, his life looks more like a road to destruction than an idyllic boat ride…

Would-be screenplay writer Sienna Meadows realises that everything about Adam spells trouble but she can’t ignore the feeling that there is more to him than just his bad reputation. Nor can she ignore the intense physical attraction that exists between them.

And it just so happens that Adam sees Sienna as the kind of woman he could commit to. But can he change his damaging behaviour or is the road to destruction a one-way street?

I’d like to thank the author, Sheryl Browne, for a copy of this novel in return for an honest review.

This is the first book I’ve read by Sheryl; it was utterly glorious and sexy, heart warming and romantic, very emotive with tension and plenty of drama.  I will certainly be checking out the other works written by Sheryl.

Adam Hamilton-Shaw is a serial womaniser and odd job man living on a houseboat in the Severn Valley.  He’s hoping to make enough money to repair his boat so he can set sail away from responsibilities and commitment.  However, the more we hear about Adam’s very troubled past we can appreciate why he’s been on such a destructive course.  Adam has experienced a truly awful event that has left his heart shattered.  His way of dealing with it was to run away, drink to try and forget and have many casual relationships.

Sienna Meadows has rented a cottage alongside the River Severn, a stone’s throw from Adam’s moored houseboat, with her friend Lauren.  Sienna is hoping this time away in a relaxing location will help her finish her screenplay.  Sienna’s first impression of Adam is not great, she realises he is a bad boy with his many female visitors to his boat but she can’t help but wonder if there’s more to him.  Their first interaction goes quite swimmingly (literally) and a mutual attraction is felt.

Can Sienna help Adam change his course of destruction and show him the route to a better life?  Can she help him with the ghosts of his past?  Will Sienna be enough for Adam to change his ways … for the rest of his life?

A story to help and give hope and to prove that appearances and first impressions can be deceiving.  5/5*

I’d like to share one of my favourite quotes from the book …

“Sienna scanned his eyes.  Haunted eyes, she saw immediately.  Eyes where a thousand dark shadows danced, those of a man who was more than scared, she realised her heart constricting for him.  He was terrified.”
