Ten days. That’s how long it will be until Carmen’s biopsy results come back and she finds out whether the cancer that killed her mother is growing in her, too. Waiting feels like torture. So Carmen runs away from her fear, onto a ship bound for the Caribbean. Tropical drinks, elegant meals, days spent on the beach and nights spent partying will let her forget what she must face when she returns home. And if she happens to hook up with a hot guy for a cruise fling, even better.
A family reunion isn’t David’s idea of a fun vacation, but it’s important to his mother, and it’s being held on a cruise ship, so he reluctantly agrees to attend. He intends to socialize with his relatives as little as possible and devote the rest of his time to sightseeing and partying. And he wouldn’t mind hooking up with a cute girl for a little no-strings-attached fun if the opportunity should present itself.
When they meet, Carmen and David consider each other the perfect distraction. They share both sizzling chemistry and the desire for their connection to remain strictly temporary. But as the days pass and they enjoy tropical pleasures together, bonds meant to stay shallow begin to deepen. Will a love born in sunshine and fantasy grow strong enough to endure the shadows of reality?
