"Great introduction to a new-to-me author"

Chloe Turner became known as the world's biggest Bridezilla when she (and the rest of the world) learned that her fiancé faked his death in order to get out of marrying her. Desperate to escape the media storm, Chloe and her best friend Jenn escape to a secluded Virginia island for a much- needed break.

Max Sullivan, treasure hunter, is on the same island while on holidays with his brother Elliott. While Elliott and the rest of the world believe Max to be a jet-setting, partying playboy, the truth is that Max has put on a charming, easygoing façade. Deep down, he wants out of his treasure hunting life but can't break away because of his compulsion to keep everyone he knows safe from, well, everything.

On the island Max and Chloe have the chance to get to know each other's true selves. But what will happen when the real world intrudes?

This was a really good book. I thought the contrast between Media Chloe and Real Chloe and Everyday Max and Real Max were great ways to show depth to both characters. Despite their personality differences, both Max and Chloe had one big thing in common: the rest of the world thought that they each were someone completely different.

I really enjoyed getting to know all of the characters in this book, including the secondary characters, and I really felt for Chloe as she endured the media firestorm revolving around her ex-fiancé's court case.

I loved this book, and it was a great introduction to Victoria Dahl.

Chloe Turner thought she was going to marry the perfect man—until her fiancé\'s plane crashed. And then she got the really bad news: he\'d tried to fake his own death to avoid marrying her. Now America\'s most famous bridezilla (a tag she most definitely does not deserve), Chloe escapes to a remote island to avoid the paparazzi. And right next door is a man who just might be the cure for Chloe\'s heartache….

A magnet for wild, complicated women, Max Sullivan is relieved to have finally found someone \"normal.\" Chloe is his girl-next-door fantasy come to life, and best of all, she gets him. With her, he can be himself, a treasure-hunting millionaire who desperately wants out of his sexy but reckless job. But when Chloe\'s notoriety catches up with them, will their torrid romance make it to the mainland?
