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?

Grand Escape was much like its title it was the perfect escape novel. It was neat to see the main character escape her life and live along with it only to fall right back into the greatest live when an unexpected guests arrives and flips her world on its axis.
Grand Escape was an absolute delight! I love the idea of the protagonist moving away to start afresh running this bar and then after swearing off love finds it in the place she least expects it! This would make a great movie. I loved the chemistry and banter between the two leads! It was very swoon worthy! Perfect book to take on a vacation of cozy up with in these chilly nights.
Grand Escape by Rachel Blaufeld is a pull at your heartstrings, slow burn romance which leads to love. Filled with chemistry, Grand Escape will also fill the reader with doubts of this love. Did I mention there are family issues that need to be worked thru? A great winter read give the read and escape to the beach.
Grand E by R. Blaufeld is the perfect vacation read. A heartwarming story that gives all the feels.
Rylan is a blonde beauty who just got a job in paradise. She works as mixologist and is happily single.
A. Stern is a customer and they have this insta-attraction. But Rylan wants to stay single. Adam the lawyer keeps pushing her buttons.
This story has it all, drama, romance, is well written and the plottwists, o my.
Next up is Love is Grand.
An easy, romantic story.
After being estranged from her parents, Rylan moves to the Caribbean and lives at an inclusive resort on an island serving drinks. She's managed to remain independent and single - until the guy at the end of the bar sits down with sad eyes. Adam is a lawyer trying to recover from his sister's suicide a couple years earlier. Neither are looking for a relationship and both believe they aren't good enough for the other. That part drags on a bit, but the tropical setting and descriptions keep the story moving. It's a slow burn romance.
After reading this story, I'm looking forward to reading the next book, Shell's story.
Thank you to NetGalley, the author and publisher for a temporary, digital ARC in return for my review.
Grand Escape by Rachel Blaufeld is the first book I have read by this author. It was a prefect book to read to escape into for a few hours.
Rylan is a woman who wanted to change her life, so she moves to the Caribbean to find her new life. She takes a job in the resort Grand Escape. A perfect name for a holiday resort.
While working she meets Adam. The attraction is there instantly for them both, but Rylan has sworn off relationships. Adam as Rylan puts it when they met has sad eyes, so she knows there is something he is dealing with in life.
The chemistry is perfect between the two. The author did a good job of making me care about them both.
Thank you NetGalley, Rachel Blaufeld and Rachel Blaufeld Publishing for the ARC of the Grand Escape. This is my personal review.
