Kane Travers, police chief of Kauai County, is three days in to a department-mandated vacation, and he's already run out of things to do. With any number of long days sprawling ahead of him, he's certain he will go stir crazy long before the investigation that put him on vacation will wrap up. When he finds a naked woman washed up on the beach outside his house, he takes her in and attempts to find out what happened to her. He'd succeed if she didn't lie to him at every turn, even going so far as to fake amnesia. Kane knows this mystery woman is hiding something, and it's going to take all of his police skills to find out what.
Annie Parks came to Hawaii to settle an old score. She never thought she'd end up handcuffed to the bed of the man who pulled her out of the ocean. No, she hasn't been entirely truthful with him about her reason for being in Hawaii, but that's no reason to handcuff her and refuse to leave her side. The more time Annie spends with Kane, however, the more she realizes that she wants to continue spending time with him. Can Annie trust the chief of police with the truth about why she's in Hawaii? And, more importantly, can she trust Kane with her heart, knowing that all vacations have to come to an end?
Your Mouth Drives Me Crazy is a lot of fun and makes for a fast and flirty read. Annie is a spitfire, and Kane's staid personality complements her well. The dialogue is true to life, and the chemistry between the two is palpable. HelenKay Dimon has done a fantastic job in crafting this tale, and I look forward to reading whatever else she writes. This is the perfect summer book - a hot story best read on a hot beach, with a cool drink nearby!
