Grand Escape by Rachel Blaufeld is now live!
With sultry beach vibes, Caribbean tunes playing in the background, and the smell of coconut and money all around, welcome to the Grand Escape.
Blond and beautiful Rylan needed to escape her life, so she ran off to a job in paradise. Surrounded by fresh salt air and the ocean waves lapping in the background, she now mixes drinks better than any other bartender at the Grand Escape.
It’s the perfect situation for a commitment-phobic woman, who wants to be nothing like the family she was born into. Each week, guests check in, spend time at her bar, and then go home.
Until the day some heartsick jerk who checked in under just his initial and last name sits down at her bar.
With sad eyes and a gritty voice, A. Stern is more than Rylan bargained for, so it’s a good thing she no longer gets tangled up with men. But this lawyer by day, alpha by night, keeps pushing his way through the barricade she’s built around her heart.
Thinking she knows why he’s heartbroken, she’s determined not to be his next victim, but he continues to shatter all her misconceptions.
With only a week until his vacation ends, can she avoid falling for the guy at the end of her bar? And can he manage to capture the heart of the only woman who has made him want to try again?

This story was definitely a great escape and transported me easily to another world. A warm breeze, refreshing and hot at the same time.
Two people who collided so beautifully in that one. The sassy bartender and the mysterious man who was supposed to be temporary.
Rylan met Adam, the atmosphere was already charged with something intense. A powerful connection to a stranger happening so fast.
Rylan was enjoying her life and not letting people tell her what to do, a bohemian soul with a big heart and commitment-phobe. It took one to know one. When Adam arrived at the resort, he was like a lost soul living through the motions, until Rylan. I enjoyed watching their relationship blossom, not without some hardships to overcome along the way.
I appreciated how the main characters evolved throughout the story, especially as individuals and so great together. A delicious cocktail , explosive and sweet with endearing characters.
It was charming and I could feel the magic in the air. I was rooting for these two from the beginning. The warming place and beautiful scenery provided a delightful setting. A lighthearted mood with a melancholic side. I had a pleasant moment of escape here.
