Meant to Be by Terri Osburn

Beth Chandler has spent her whole life pleasing others. She went to law school to make her grandparents happy. She agreed to marry her workaholic boyfriend, Lucas, to make him happy. And, despite her fear of boats, she took a ferry to see Lucas’s parents just to make them happy.

While suffering through a panic attack on the ferry, Beth meets a tall, sexy stranger who talks her down from her fear—and makes her heart flutter in the process. Soon, she has a new reason to panic: her gorgeous, blue-eyed rescuer is Lucas’s brother, Joe. But could she ever leave her fiancĂ© for his own brother…even if Lucas is more focused on making partner than on making their relationship work…and even if Joe turns out to be everything she never knew she wanted?

This book was an enjoyable read with a great cast of characters. The heroine Beth was the least successful in my opinion because I found it hard to relate to her focus on putting the happiness of others so far above her own. That aside though, it was easy to see why Joe fell for her (though I never really understood why Lucas proposed in the first place). It is obvious that Anchor Island is going to play host to a series of romances which is exciting because I loved all of the characters that were introduced here in this series opener. A great start to what I hope will be a great series!
