"I just need some time," the words were like poison to Tarby's ears, "Maybe to just figure out what I want."

Tarby Jackson has common sense, if something sounds too good to be true - it probably is. So, the sound of two weeks vacation with her boyfriend Eden sounded almost too perfect. Until she found out Eden was cheating on her with the oddly named rich girl Cotton Marigold; no more summer getaway, no more happiness. 
All Tarby needs is her best friend Cinnie and a white sand beach somewhere warm and far away where she can forget her troubles, and with perfect timing, meet sexy pro boxer Tuck Everson. But when any chance of a romance is shot down with the words 'I need time', Tarby learns how to play the waiting game - and play it well.

I know people like that, if they were on fire, I'd taunt them with the water then drink it, laugh and walk away! But haha! Good book, sound interesting ;)
