Contemp Review: Sea Glass Winter: A Shelter Bay Novel [Mass Market Paperback]



I've finished reading "Sea Glass Winter" the 5th book in her Shelter Bay series by Joann Ross.

Product Description

He was used to getting what he wanted. And what he wanted was her.

As an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Specialist, Dillon Slater had one of the most dangerous jobs in the military. Now, he’s enjoying the pace of life in Shelter Bay, where he teaches high school physics. He still gets to blow things up, but as the school basketball coach he also gets to impart leadership skills. His latest minefield: fifteen-year-old Matt Templeton — and Matt’s irresistible mother.

Claire Templeton moved her troubled teenage son to the small town of Shelter Bay to escape the bad influences at his school in L.A. But when his attitude earns her a visit from the handsome basketball coach, she wonders if this role model might be too much of a temptation — for her. Because though she isn’t looking for a relationship, she can’t seem to resist Dillon’s playful charm. But what she doesn’t realize is that Dillon isn’t playing games — he’s playing for keeps.

My Review:

Dillon Slater is a former Explosive ordnance Disposal Specialist one of the most dangerous jobs in the military.  Now he is high school basketball coach who also teaches physics in Shelter Bay.  His latest is Matt Templeton and his irresistible mother.

Claire Templeton has moved her misfit son from the bad influences of his L.A. school to the quiet town of Shelter Bay.  One day when she receives a visit from his handsome basketball coach because of his bad behavior she is extremely tempted by him.  She isn't looking for a long term relationship but is seduced by his playful charm though she doesn't know that Dillon is playing for keeps.

I really like how Dillon is really interested in helping the team succeed and wants them to work well together even if they win or not.  Glad to see they finally start to learn each other strengths and weaknesses which helps them work together to become a better team.

I really liked Dillon and Claire's relationship because it was sweet and you can feel the chemistry between them.  He really cares for her and Matt and he know he wanted Claire and went for what he wanted.

4/5
