Temptation on Ocean Drive, A heart-stirring novel of unrequited love and second chances by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst is live!
Young widow Bella Sunshine-Caldwell is focused only on raising her daughter and running the family business, Sunshine Bridal. There’s no time for romance—especially with her fellow wedding planner, Gabe, whom she’s growing increasingly attracted to. He’s too enterprising to stay in Cape May for long, anyway. And too tall, dark, and handsome to be anything but a heartbreaker.
Every woman in town has her sights on Gabe Garcia. The only woman he has eyes for doesn’t seem interested. All he wants is to fall in love, be a father, and settle down. As he and Bella work together on a magical winter wedding, the distance between them closes, the nights grow warmer, and Bella might be seeing Gabe for who he really is: a man worth the effort.
But all it takes is a single rumor for these two hearts’ fragile love story to shatter. And now the happy ending Bella and Gabe hoped for is something they’re going to have to fight for.
Bella and Gabe were charming together and I believed in the attraction initially, but as the book progressed I found myself losing interest in this couple, which is really odd with this author as she is a go to author for me.
I was drawn to the idea that of a male in the bridal industry, and I liked the dynamic Gabe had, not only with Bella but also with the other sisters. But I am not sure I ever fully bought into the idea of Gabe and Bella as a long term couple, which made me not fully connect with them as much as I was expecting to.
While I did have issues with it regarding the main relationship and the way it evolved, I still really enjoyed this title and recommend it.

He repeated the question. “I need to know. Why was it easier not to believe me?”
This time, she didn’t hesitate. “Because then I could pretend you weren’t the man I really wanted.”
“And do you? Want me?”
She jerked back. Her tongue slipped out to wet her bottom lip. Her voice was barely a whisper. “Yes.”
He muttered a curse. Then leaned forward, his hand cupping her chin. “I want to kiss you, Bella. I’ve been wanting to kiss you forever, but I need to know it’s okay.”
She stared at him, pupils dilated, ragged breaths panting from her lips, and he knew this moment would be carved out in his mind—the first time he saw her face reflect her open want for him. She gave a tiny nod.
He moved closer. His lips stopped an inch from hers. “No. You need to say it.”
“Yes. Kiss me, Gabe.”
His mouth covered hers.
