Celia Langford lost her perfect life in the ultimate betrayal—not only was her late husband a cheat, he left her with a mountain of debt and no self-confidence. She poured her grief into cooking, determined to start new and heal by the sea. She meets Dax Smith, local dive shop owner, and pure-bred south Florida native. The wrong city girl left a bad taste in his mouth, so he’s stayed clear of all matters of the heart. His father is ill, her business is not going as planned. But their uncontrollable attraction toward one another makes anything seem possible.

4 “a bite at a time” Stars!

Looking for a sweet love story? How about a story about finding yourself, and what’s important in life? Ambrosia is definitely the read for you if you said yes to either of these. This is such a fun and light read. It flows so smooth, and it’s over before you know it, or want it to be.

“I will never accept being less than somebody again. I am me, and I count.”

Celia Langford has just lost her husband and is wanting a new start.  She’s going from doctor’s wife, who was expected to be perfect, to a life of beach living and relaxation. She is desperate for a new start. A new business and new life are what she is looking for. But love is not!!

“Crossing his legs, he accepted that he was horny, and attracted to a woman who was an uptight mess. Not the way he’d thought to start his day.”

Now…in walks Dax Smith. Blonde curls, tan, lean body, and a heart of gold. These two could not be any more different, except for the heart of gold 😉 That’s what I really enjoyed about this story. There’s no bad guy here. It’s just two people living life, helping others, and surviving. And believe me, Celia tries to fight it. Who can fight Dax’s charm, though. He’s so genuine.

“I’m almost thirty years old. I’ve been married. But I have the giggles because Dax, I think you’re cute.”

This story has two characters that you can’t help but love, and many others that I also enjoyed. There’s no drama, heartache, or frustrating moments. It’s a great beach day or pool day read that will put a smile on your face and help you relax. Happy Reading!
