You can follow the rules or you can follow your heart…
Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And so far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she’d always craved – until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks.
Luke lives fast and wild. When he meets Sienna, he’s convinced that some no-strings-attached fun is just what she needs. As their nights quickly turn from playful to passionate, Luke can’t deny the deep connection he feels. But there’s a reason Luke doesn’t do long-term. He can’t promise Sienna forever, when the enormity of his past has shown him just how fragile the future can be . . .
This was a very enjoyable read. I adore books that are very descriptive of their settings and surroundings as it makes it so much easier for me to immerse myself into the story.
Luke Everett. Well, what can I say? I just wanted to hug him close and make all of his demons go away. The pain he went – and was still going – through was palpable through the pages and Sienna just wasn’t able to handle it in the short space of time they had together.
It was heartbreaking watching the realisation that she may not be the one to help him through accepting what had happened in the recent past. It gave me hope every time he smiled or had a twinkle in his eye.
This was a sweet romance with a side of angst in the mix. It had a typical JA Redmerski twist in there which left me as gasping and praying for their HEA. Not the first time she’s achieved this action in me!
Congratulations on another seemingly light hearted book with deeper meaning, Jessica. A pleasure to read and enjoy. A perfect summer read. Particularly if you’re in Hawaii!
4 out of 5 stars.
