Logan Murdoch is a fighter, a survivor, and a provider. When he leaves a distinguished career in the Marine Corps to work security at a luxury beachfront resort, he’s got one objective: pay his father’s mounting medical bills. That means Connor Harcourt, the irresistibly handsome scion of the wealthy family that owns Sapphire Cove, is strictly off limits, despite his sassy swagger and beautiful blue eyes. Logan’s life is all about sacrifices; Connor is privilege personified. But temptation is a beast that demands to be fed, and a furtive kiss ignites instant passion, forcing Logan to slam the brakes. Hard.

Haunted by their frustrated attraction, the two men find themselves hurled back together when a headline-making scandal threatens to ruin the resort they both love. This time, there’s no easy escape from the magnetic pull of their white hot desire. Will saving Sapphire Cove help forge the union they crave, or will it drive them apart once more?

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Surprisingly, Sapphire Sunset was the first book by Christopher Rice that I’ve ever read. It sure won’t be the last because this story was remarkable. I loved Logan and Connor’s storyline.

A lot was going on – a wrong-time, second-chance, work-related romance between an alpha male and super bottom but despite all those components, the author provided a convincing story. I thought the pairing between the two characters was magnificent. The passion and romance was spot on.

However, there were times that it did get a bit wordy. Some of the lingo was way over my head, but this didn’t stop me from enjoying the book overall.

If you are into MM Romance, that leaves a long-lasting impression. Read Sapphire Sunset. I couldn’t put it down and can not wait to get my hands on the second book and hope that he plans to expand the series beyond that.

The Verdict:
