The wedding may be off, but the honeymoon is on…

Merilee Fallon has been planning her wedding to Matt Townsend since she was seven, and now the big day is only two days away. But suddenly she has an unexpectedly serious case of cold feet. So she shocks both Matt and herself—and calls off the wedding.

They may not get their happily ever after, but both Merilee and Matt agree they shouldn’t let their non-refundable honeymoon go to waste. So they take the Mexican Riviera cruise—as friends. It’s Merilee’s chance to be adventurous, and maybe even put her newfound freedom to the test. But she’s about to discover that sometimes there’s nothing more arousing than first love—especially on a cruise ship where there are no rules and anything goes…

It is the unexpected that makes the heart beat faster, the desire stir a little longer and the longing drive the emotional experience. It is when the expected becomes the unexpected that lives are changed forever.

Matt and Merilee have been each other’s soul mates since they were seven years old. Now in college and preparing to finally get married, unexpected questions arise and fate throws a curve ball. A chance observation of her sister’s new fiancĂ© pouring his heart out and admitting his true devotion makes Merilee wonder about her relationship with Matt. Is it all too convenient, do they really want the same things, and are they really meant for each other?

Merilee’s doubts about their love and their future cancel their long awaited wedding and sends Matt into a total spin. He has never been without her and she has never known another man. Where do they go from here? Well… there is the non-refundable honeymoon cruise! Making concessions so the other can go, Matt and Merilee both find themselves on a luxury cruise to Mexico agreeing to share a cabin as friends. Okay?

This is the story of two people who are “so right for each other” going through the “so wrong for each other” phase only to discover they really aren’t the people they thought they were. With time and a change of scenery, Merilee and Matt rediscover each other, their wants, their desires, their futures. Merilee is solid, stoic, devoted while Matt simply is in love with Merilee. He wants nothing more in life that to be by her side forever. Her dreams are his dreams until he has time to rethink his dreams.

What they took for granted now becomes a new experience, a new adventure and a new desire emotionally and physically. Their dreams aren’t really what they want but what they settled for, their passion is not what they want but what they learned as young teens and never allowed to change as they became adults.

This is book four in the Wild Ride to Love Series by Susan Fox and it is as good as the very first book. This is startling, sensual, sexy, passionate tale of two lovers finding their way back to each other as new people.

No one writes a love story like Susan Fox; it is gripping, entertaining, intelligent; the dialogue is so real you can hear it in your head. If you have not read the previous books, that is okay, this one stands alone as well but try and get the first three to see the culmination of the lives of four completely different sisters. Don’t miss this -- as with all the others it ends with a smile!
