Review by Irene: No More Wasted Time by Beverly Preston

Life isn’t about tomorrow ~ Life is about today
After losing her husband to a sudden heart attack, Tess Mathews escapes to Bora Bora to lay her husband and sorrow to rest. What she doesn’t expect is a new beginning.
Tom Clemmins is an A-list actor whose life revolves around work and an onslaught of women. He travels to Bora Bora for a much-needed break. Tom has a few ideas of how he’ll enjoy his vacation, but love isn’t one of them. Until he sees Tess.
Reserving a private shark-feeding excursion to scatter her husband’s ashes into the lagoon, Tess is furious when Mr. Hollywood bribes his way onto the boat, leaving her no other choice but to share the boat ride.
Tess is torn between tremendous guilt and zealous lust when their boat ride turns into a week full of romance and desire neither thought imaginable. Utterly smitten with a woman for the first time in his life, Tom casts his commitment phobia aside and whisks Tess off to Malibu where he introduces her as his “girlfriend” on the red carpet. 
As the paparazzi besiege, can Tess survive the media blitz that ensues in order to find her second chance at love?

Bestselling Author Beverly Preston has been a stay at home mom for 21 years, although she prefers the title Domestic Engineer, raising her four amazing kids. As her children begin to venture out on their own, she's left to shed a tear--for a minute--wonder what's next in life, and embrace the feeling of empowerment that surely must've been wrapped in a present she received on her fortieth birthday.

If Beverly isn't at home riding her spin bike, you'll find her spinning richly emotional and sinfully sexy romance stories. 

Laugh, cry, and fall in love with The Mathews Family one Happily Ever After at a time.

This book is about fate and finding your soul mate. Nah just fate!

Tess who goes on vacation to spread her husband's ashes meets Tom. They briefly caught each other while checking into the hotel the day prior. Tom isn't your ordinary guy. Nope he is a hot movie star. Tess doesn't see him like that though. She see's him as Tom, a man who wants to steal her private tour! 

As they go on their tour they get antiquated with one another. This is where Tom realizes that Tess doesn't care who he is, she will give him an attitude like no other. No special treatment for Tom.

Tom shows Tess a good time. She doesn't want to leave his presence, but she needs to get back to her life in the real world. Tom however has other plans. See while on their day trip their chemistry was great. Their conversation flow was easy, they laughed and played with each other. Things Tom missed because people tend to treat him different. Tess she missed the last year of her life grieving her husband's death. So when Tom says he wants to spend more time with her she says yes. No second guessing! She is live in the now, not the tomorrow.

Tom takes her on an adventure I tell you. At every stop they fall in love with each other but they both have a hard time saying it. For Tess she feels it is to soon. Tom he just wants to be sure Tess loves him as well before he says it.

It did seem like Tom was always reassuring Tess. Apologizing for something. Tess had to get over her husband and comparing him to Tom just wasn't the deal. She did do this a few times. 

It was a great story. Some of you might like it more than me or even less than me. We all have different likes in style of reading.
