Tess Morrow and Jack Wright have always struck sparks every time they're in the same room. But now they have no choice. Their parents have decided to take a vacation. The only problem is, no one knows where they are!

So Tess shows up in sunny Florida, sweating in heavy clothes that she's worn in Chicago because it's the middle of November. What should she find at her mother and stepfather's house? Her stepfather's son, Jack Wright.

Reluctantly, they agree to work together to find out where their parents are hiding, and why they took off without anything other than a message on Tess's answering machine. And when they left is another unanswered question.

Tess has always thought that Jack was up to no good, and she`s almost sure of it now that they`re stuck under one roof during a hurricane. But she also discovers that they're sending off different kinds of sparks as an attraction grows wilder with each falling rain drop.

This book is simply hilarious. Jack has a great sense of humor and Tess has almost none, which makes for interesting conversations. I was laughing out loud for a lot of the book, something that got me some odd looks.

Jack is a wonderful man, one I wouldn`t mind meeting in real life at all. And Tess is cold, but with good reasons. And I won`t say anything other than that about her because I don`t want to spoil anything! But be sure you read this if you ever get the chance, you won`t regret it!
