Jae Sun Kim arrives late for his scuba vacation refresher class in Belize. Trauma surgeon Kim has just lost the partnership career he sought. However, rescheduled accommodations and seasickness has Kim thinking this impulsive escape to diagram a new future is a terrible idea until he discovers that his roommate is the sexy dive master, Shane McCormack. The close quarters on the ship and the mutual attraction is the perfect setting for a vacation fling.

No Souvenirs is the story of Jae Sun Kim, whom we first met in Collision Course. What started out as a vacation fling for Kim and Shane evolves into a romance after an unforeseen dramatic experience leaves them emotionally altered. When Kim returns home to Jacksonville, Florida, Shane follows him to explore the possibility of a relationship. The characters are well developed. Both men have a high degree of intelligence. Kim employs logic as well as arrogance when dealing with people, being inexperienced with relationships. His lack of skill in expressing his emotions is a source of annoyance for Shane. Easily bored and hiding behind a dumb cowboy personality, Shane avoids situations that will require dedication from him until he realizes that a life with Kim is what he wants. The secondary characters add another layer of interest to the overall plot. Interaction between Kim and Shane is sarcastic, humorous and incredibly erotic. The amazing K. A. Mitchell has produced another exciting saga that I thoroughly enjoyed.
