Blurb from Goodreads: 
Cameron Blake’s misconception cost Daryl Chambers two pair of shoes, a skirt, her accommodations, and her dignity. And that was only the first morning. If he weren’t so impossibly attractive, Daryl would have punched him.

Daryl has decided that Cameron is the most infuriating man she’s ever met and yet her attraction is irritatingly undeniable. He is gorgeous and rich and, unfortunately, her client. She is pretty sure there are only two obstacles keeping her out of his bed: He drives her insane and she doubts he could ever be attracted to someone like her.

Cameron Blake has two rules when it comes to women: No attachments and no trouble. It’s just his way. So why does this crazy little woman, with a fiery attitude and fierce curves, catch his eye? Daryl Chambers is not his type and yet he wants her.

In the game of love and attraction, both players must decide if they will play to win or play for keeps.

My Review:

 *I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. Thanks to Aurelia Fray*

Daryl Chambers is sent to the luxurious and exclusive Tienimi Club resort for her job at an insurance company. Her time on the island doesn't get off to a good start for one reason - Cameron Blake.
Cameron is a gorgeous playboy millionaire who doesn't do relationships. He also doesn't usually go for petite, curvy women like Daryl but he can't help the attraction he feels towards her.
Daryl knows that she stands no chance with Cam but she may not have a choice in what happens - Cameron has his sights set on Daryl and he always gets what he wants.

Aurelia Fray, Queen of Feels, strikes again!
Every book in this series has had believable, relatable characters that feel real. They're flawed and that what makes you love them.
Daryl is strong, stubborn but also body-conscious. She's one of my favourite characters in the series and I loved that she didn't take any crap from anyone.
I liked Cameron even if he did annoy me sometimes by the way he acted. However, Cam was so much more than he appeared and I felt sorry for him and wanted him to be happy.
I love Fray's writing style - it sucked me in made me feel like I was at Tienimi with the characters.

Overall this was a fantastic end to a fantastic series. I'm sad to see it end!

I'm giving away a paperback copy of book one of the Tienimi series, Emeralds and Fire.

Blurb from Goodreads:

Don’t ask me why I did it. It may have been the way my boss laughed at the prospect of me losing my job or it could have been the toothy sneers from the sharks in the admin pool. Either way, I took an invitation from his email and signed myself up for ten days in Hawaii at an exclusive members-only resort and told them my boss recommended me.
And the best part? They believed me.

Tienimi is everything I need right now. Exclusivity, pampering, companionship, intimacy, Tienimi offers it all. The Tienimi Club resort is the place to be for the super-rich and elite, only I am neither of those things. I am the personal assistant to a lecherous fool who only sees me when he is staring at my chest.
I know I don’t belong in a place like Tienimi. In a place where a person's every need is catered for, where your every desire can be made a reality.

And then there’s Chris.

They assigned him to me. My perfect fit, they said. They were right. He is perfect, right down to those crazy little smiles he gives me when he thinks no one else is looking.
I never intended to fall in love, but suddenly the thought of leaving Tienimi has torn my heart in two. How do you say goodbye when your heart is breaking?
