My Review:
A romance novel like no other that will leave you hanging on to the very end. Madison lost her twin brother Michael to drowning. She has struggled with his death but as a last tribute to her brother she has decided to enter a sailing contest called the River Sail Regatta. There is only one problem she can't sail. So she needs to learn and learn fast. So enter... Beckett O'Reilly... he will teach Madison what she needs for the contest but he is falling and falling fast. Only trouble with that is, is that he harbors a secret and he is not sure what this will do to the budding friendship/relationship.

 Denise Hunter has a knack for romance novels and in her novels there is nothing off limits. This book is a tried and true romance novel with a surprising twist of unexpectation.
