I am a fairly new reader to Heidi McLaughlin and I have to say I have become a big fan. The excitement I felt when this landed on my kindle was instant, I couldn’t wait to dive straight in. Sexcation is exactly what the doctor ordered. Set on the beautiful island of Bermuda, white sandy beaches and crystal clear water, everything a holiday should be.

This romantic love story revolves around two main characters. Jade and Jackson. Jade. Beautiful and alone. Her best friend sent her on this trip to spend some quality me time after the breakup of her relationship. Alone was just how she liked it until she clapped her eyes on a gorgeous guy staying at the same hotel. Jade wasn’t alone, three bikini clad women had also seen Jackson and were on a mission to capture his attention.

Jackson. Suave and handsome with bulging arms, tattoos and a cute British accent to boot. Had travelled to Bermuda before making a move across the pond to settle in New York City. As soon as he saw jade, she stirred his interest. He came up with the perfect solution that made him extremely happy. Spending time with the beautiful Jade and in the process, giving the three ladies the impression that he was taken.

Jade and Jackson struck a bargain. They would pretend to be husband and wife throughout the duration of their holiday to deter the three women going after Jackson. And as luck would have it, he was in the adjoining room to hers. At this point I have to tell you that part of the bargain was that neither one would tell each other anything personal, and that Jade and Jackson was not their real names. You just knew that this was going to come back and bite them on the bum (as we British like to say). It was a forgone conclusion. 

Let the fun times begin. The chemistry between them was so strong you knew that their pretending was going to go a lot further. A glorious week of good weather, good food, good company and plenty of sex was what followed. Did I say SEX. The sex between these two was downright hot and the author conveyed this within the book which made the pages sizzle in some parts. 

The week ends and they go their separate ways, but both are left feeling totally devastated. Their feelings are reciprocated, but both were frightened of rejection. I just wanted to bang their heads together. This is where the story gets really interesting. Are they destined to ever meet again? Or is one week all they were meant to have. I’m not going to give too much away and only say, read the book if you want to know what happens between these two. Their journey isn’t as straightforward as you would think. There are battles to overcome and issues that need to be resolved. 

I couldn’t put this book down. I personally felt like I had been swept away to Bermuda for the week just to watch these two characters come together. The story was well written and flowed throughout the book. It was a pure romantic love story with a bit of naughty thrown in.  Just how I like it ! Jackson was British and from my neck of the woods which made me love him just that tiny bit more.

I look forward to reading more of Heidi’s work. Thank you for a most enjoyable read. I’m off now to try and book a sexcation. Wish me luck ! Ha ha ha.

I laugh and find myself tempted by her hand, which sits on the metal table. After our impromptu snogging session, Jade put on a nice little sundress which has my imagination running wild and some strappy sandals. Her toes are painted a turquoise blue. I found it a little weird at first; normally I see reds or pinks on toes, but rarely a blue colour. I quite like it. I like it a lot. In fact, I’ve yet to find something about this woman I don’t like. 
“And yet, you didn’t. I came over and kissed you. You could’ve punched me, kicked me in the nuts, or groped me. I’m grateful you let me kiss you the way I did.”
She blushes again. “Why did you? I’m sure there are other, more beautiful women at the resort that would’ve been happy to oblige you.”
“But then I wouldn’t be here with my pretend wife, trying to get to know more about her.”
Her eyes don’t waver from mine as she takes a sip of her cocktail. “Do you really want to get to know me?”
“The fake you, yes. I don’t want to get cornered by one of the triplets and not know my facts.”
“Are they in fact, triplets?”
I shake my head. “I haven’t got a bloody clue, to be honest with you. Fake tits all look the same at the end of the day.”
Her mouth falls open into a sexy little O and images of other ways I can make that happen pop straight into mind. “I named them Muffy, Tuffy, and Buffy. The names seemed fitting,” she says with a shrug. 
I crack the fuck up. “Then that is what we’ll call them until they leave.”

“Do you know when that is? Or what room they’re in?”
I lean over the table and pick her hand up. “They leave after us, and no, I don’t, thank goodness. I don’t care either. I made you a promise and I always keep my promises.” I bring her hand to my lips and let them linger against her skin until a passer-by makes a comment about us being in love. 

Not love, lust though, and I couldn’t be happier that I chose her to be my distraction this week. When I finally let go of her hand, she picks up her drink and finishes it. 

“Want another one?” I ask, already standing by the time she nods. I lean down and kiss the top of her head, inhaling the scent of her shampoo. The smell of grapefruit assaults my senses, making my heart race. I groan as I walk into the restaurant. I could’ve easily waited for the waitress to come back to us, but I needed to step away from Jade for a minute. She’s fucking deadly with her innocent façade and I have a strong reason to believe I’m going to fall victim to her and love every minute of it. 
When I walk out, there’s a bloke talking to her as if it’s an everyday occurrence. I have never been jealous of any man until now. The pure rage I feel, watching him talk to my pretend wife almost takes over my body, yet I find the will to let it go. Who am I to stand in the way of her potential hook-ups?
