Fate of a Marlowe Girl by Beth Fred

From Goodreads:
When twenty-four-year-old Tiffany escapes her sister Kammy's too wild Cancun bachelorette party, she finds herself in a bar with the unwanted attention of a gorgeous local named Luke.

Luke may be charming but Tiffany is leaving in two days and doesn't need any complications. But complications are exactly what she gets when the cops show up to raid Kammy's party. When Kammy is arrested, Tiffany agrees to have dinner with Luke, so he'll help her get Kammy out of jail.
Kammy's arrest forces her to spend an extra day in Cancun, meaning she'll miss a crucial meeting, and as an accountant in tax season, she is already drowning in work. Not to mention, every second she spends with Luke makes it harder to leave. With Luke, Tiffany can forget about work.

But will the airport be their final goodbye?

My Take:
This was a quick and fun read. In fact I read the whole thing while sitting in the air port waiting for my flight.

I felt for Tiffany as she struggled to deal with her obviously pampered and spoiled rotten sister. She sort of frustrated me because she let her family walk all over her. I think that's one reason I liked Luke right away. He was the true knight in shining armor coming in to defend and protect her. Even from herself.

I loved where this ended up. It was the perfect travel read.

Cute, clean, and quick (novella length). 4 stars!

1-5 scale and what it means:
1: I couldn’t even finish it / just plain bad
2: I hope I didn’t pay for this / disappointing
3: I didn’t hate it, but it was still missing something / forgettable but inoffensive
3.5: On the line between good and ok / like, not love
4: Solid mind candy / worth reading
4.5: So very close to perfection! / must read
5: I could not put it down and I’m still thinking about it! / a true treasure
