Sun, Sea and Sangria - Victoria Cooke || Blog Tour

Kat swore off dating many years ago, after her marriage ended in a catastrophic mess. Having moved to the Canary Islands for a fresh start, she has never had much time for romance, channelling all her energy into managing all-male dance troupe – the Heavenly Hunks.

With golden beaches, sparkling blue water and relaxing after work with a glass of sangria – or three – for Kat, it’s summer all year round. But despite life being postcard perfect, Kat can’t help but wonder if she is missing out on the most important thing of all… love.
The dancers are all well-known for their flirtatious antics and aren’t looking for anything serious… except Jay. Sitting by the pool, watching the sun reflecting in the water, Kat feels like she can tell him anything.

Handsome, caring and a good listener, he ignites a fire in Kat’s heart that scares her witless. But her relationship with Jay should stay strictly professional… right? There is absolutely no way that she can be his boss and his date.

As the temperature rises, will Kat be able to take the plunge, let go of her past and find romance in paradise?

Well, this is totally what i needed to read on my week off, it rained the whole time and there was no chance of me going anyway, so a virtual holiday was called in. Time to pop to the Canary Islands.

We meet Kat who has lived over in the canarys for a while after her home life turned sour and her marriage was not all it was cracked up to be, but dont worry about her because she has the dream job right? She manages The Heavenly Hunks, think magic mike & dreamboys ect *fans self*  Yet, despite the glorious weather and wonderful men she is surrounded with - life isnt that great when she starts to question if she is really happy?

When a new hunk joins the group she finds herself drawn to him, there is a connection and the pair find themselves sharing the secret of their pasts to each other, but Kat has made it clear - no mixing business and pleasure. As things change around them though - will she take the plunge?

Honestly, i enjoyed this so much - it had me daydreaming about my holiday, i can imagine it all clear as day and that isn't a bad sight to imagine. I loved Kat and i enjoyed that we got insights into her past and how that has impacted her. She was a strong leading lady that has picked herself up and started again creating something wonderful.

Jay was great too - he was likeable, he fitted in with the hunks but was also his own person and whilst he could flirt with the best of them he also knows what he wants from life. He is enjoying spending time with Kat but she keeps running and he is determined to find out why and what he can do?

I really enjoyed this, it was light hearted, sexy and funny with a real dose of summer romance. It was perfect to whisk the reader away for a while. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a bit of a break for a while.

I was gifted an e-arc for the blog tour, it has not impacted my review. You can get a copy below
