REVIEW: WHAT HE TAUGHT HER a Contemporary Romance by Anne Whitfield

Rob Healy has everything he wants, or will have once he’s built his new resort on a small island in the Pacific. A woman in his life isn’t planned at the moment, but when he sees Cassandra Kearns in the foyer looking stiff and out of place amongst the holiday makers his interest is spiked. What is a beautiful woman doing wearing a business suit and holding a laptop doing on an island resort, especially when there are no conferences booked that week?

Cassandra Kearns is fleeing New York and all that makes her comfortable for two idyllic weeks in the tropics. She’s stressed, overtired and close to breaking point. Her divorce is finalized, her daughter is grown and she’s realizing that she’s on her own and dare she say it - lonely.

She needs to take some time and recharge her batteries. But how is she to do that? She’s worked 24/7 for years. Does she know how to have fun?

When Cassandra meets Rob she rejects the spark of attraction she feels. A man in her life, after the betrayal of Oliver? She’d rather eat broken glass!

Yet Rob is persistent, he’s funny and he’s gorgeous, but what exactly does he want?

Reading WHAT HE TAUGHT HER filled in a delightful couple of hours with two charismatic people inhabiting a beautiful part of the world. Anne Whitfield's descriptions of a tropical island resort are vivid, and her love scenes are sexy and tender. Rob is a typical hunky Aussie bloke who knows what he wants and Cassandra's vulnerability is believable and touching. A superb escape from the wintery weather I'm experiencing.
