Mila Quinn is ready to finally move out of the college dorms into an apartment with her longtime boyfriend, Ethan Lowe. But when Ethan reveals a big secret, her world is suddenly turned upside down, stirring up old memories of love and loss. Completely torn apart, she boards a plane to Hawaii to escape for the summer.

Even though Mila wants to spend her time in paradise in isolation, fate has other plans when it drops sexy local Gage Madden in her lap. Hesitant at first, she agrees to let him take the reins on her island exploration. As Mila discovers the wonders of Oahu with Gage, it becomes harder for her to fight the budding attraction between them.

But behind the curtain of island adventures and undeniable chemistry, trouble is brewing where Mila least expects it. Secrets begin to bubble to the surface that could destroy her all over again. Will Mila find her paradise? Or will she leave Hawaii with another broken heart?

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

What a sweet, heartwarming, refreshing read. It was an enjoyable, fast paced, well told story. It’s full of sweetness with its own sourness to keep things real. It has the type of happiness that will keep you smiling like an idiot as you read it, but also has the details to make your heart break.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It flowed well and the details were perfect. The descriptions kept the visuals going the farther I read. It pulled out a string of emotions from me, from sappy, to happy, to sad, to frustrated, to downright angry. I felt a deep sense of love though from the characters, both male and female.  It was really one of those “feel good” books with a mix of anger and frustration.

I applaud the author with the way she wrote the story.  She has, without a doubt, made me want to travel to Hawaii, but also made me want to check out more of her work. I definitely recommend to check out this story, I don’t think you will be disappointed.
