Title: Matt’s Mystic Connection
Author: Katie O’Sullivan
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Beach Read
Sparks fly when Sam meets Matt at a kiteboarding tournament in Mystic, Connecticut, where the sizzling connection between them is almost combustible.
Samantha Jones moved to Cape Cod at the age of ten, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Between wrangling first graders and caring for her aging grandmother, she doesn’t have time for serious relationships. Every free moment is spent on the water, and the money from the sponsorships doesn’t hurt.
Up until recently, Matthew Daniels had it all: great job, cool apartment in the heart of San Francisco, and a girlfriend he was ready to take the next step with. Now, all that’s left is the job at the up and coming kiteboard brand. He’s hoping a fresh start on the East coast – back with all of his college buddies – will be the hard reset he needs to get his life back on track. What he doesn’t anticipate is the unforgettable woman he meets in Mystic.
A fresh start is what Matt needs, but an unexpected connection has him reeling. A promotion at work leads to a proposal, then a bad break-up has Matt starting over on the East Coast. Putting all of his energy into his new job, he attends a kiteboarding tournament. It’s there he meets beautiful Samantha, a contestant. He can’t take his eyes off of her, but she doesn’t want a relationship. He can’t deny the connection between them, but he’ll have to convince her it’s the real deal and not some fling. If only he can find her… Can Matt and Sam ride the waves of life, or will they crash and burn?
Matt’s Mystic Connection is an intoxicating beach romance with all the feels. I didn’t know much about kiteboarding prior to reading this book but thanks to Katie O’Sullivan’s detailed narration, I’ve got to try it. I connected with both Sam and Matt right away. Both have had their hearts broken in the past and harbor trust issues. It was fun to watch these two fall in love and then deal with fear before figuring out love is worth the strife. I appreciated Katie O’Sullivan’s talking in detail from Sam’s point of view, on the double standard that is prevalent in sports where both men and women compete, which resonated with me. The setting is gorgeous and is one of the reasons why I read books written by Katie O’Sullivan. Through her lush descriptions and deep POV, Katie O’Sullivan transports the reader into the story. Every time I read one of Katie’s books, it’s like going on vacation. The romance is steamy and delicious, perfect for a summer beach read. If you’re a romance reader, you’ll want to dive into Matt’s Mystic Connection. If beach reads are your reading jam, don’t miss out on Matt’s Mystic Connection. Brilliant from start to finish, Matt’s Mystic Connection takes romance to the next level. Highly recommend!
