She refuses to leave the yacht they are on to go to town with him and meet someone who he believes is a better match for her. So she stays behind.

Genres:

  • Mindie Van der Walt

    What a surprising ending. Short and sweet. We dont always know what we really want.

  • Marion Threadcraft

    Quick and interesting. Surprise ending. Would not want to be best friends with the main female character.

  • Brittany Sorrell
