Synopsis (From Goodreads)
What do you do when you meet someone who could be the love of your life, but to be together, one of you will have to give up everything?
Kayla’s had her time licking her wounds after a scummy ex-boyfriend tipped her world upside down. Now she’s ready to take time out for herself on a dream vacation in Hawaii. If that won’t pull the shattered pieces of her heart back together, nothing will.
What she hadn’t planned on was falling for someone new. Especially someone tall, tanned, and distractingly sexy. What starts out as a fun holiday fling quickly turns into a full-blown love affair, with neither wanting to face up to the fact that the clock is ticking until Kayla has to return home.
The first book of three in the Hawaiian Heartbreak trilogy. This book is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to explicit sexual content.
My Opinion on Hawaiian Heartbreak
Now, this is a 3 part book and this review goes to the first part, the other two are still in my TBR but after re-reading this and remember why on earth I was so into making a review for it on the blog… *smile* I will be getting my hands on the others soon enough.
The story it’s simple, so far. Kayla goes and takes a trip to Hawaii after a breakup and finds herself a gorgeous tour guy that flirts with her, talks to her, makes he laugh and understand her in ways that her ex didn’t.
The problem is that she doesn’t have how to stay on Hawaii after her time is up. She has to go back to her job even thou she doesn’t like it very much, she actually kind of hate it, but she is not rich girl and she can’t afford to do crazy things like stay on this place just to see if the guy will stay at her side.
I understand her. You can’t just throw away caution to the wind for a hot guy, no matter how heart melting and orgasmic he can be. It’s just not done. Not girl with a brain on her head and a little bit of self-preservation would do it… right? Am I wrong?
Jay on the other hand looks like a man with enough secrets to sink a ship. Honestly, I believe what he told her about still studying and the struggles of paying for all that but… there was something else there that I just couldn’t pin point and still bothers me now.
He is a good guy. He gave and take as Kayla did and their pun competition matches are so funny that it’s ridiculous. I like them as a couple. But, again, he has some issues when it comes to people not staying in Hawaii and I get it, but I wish he could be a little more understanding of Kayla… or at least offer her another option, help her out, whatever.
I love the story over all and I want to read the other two books. I want to know what about Adam? I mean, such a small role but it’s interesting to play with the ideas in my head about him getting in between Jay and Kayla. If Jay doesn’t drove her away forever with his PMS kind of performance.
That will be my last note. How the book ended? I didn’t get it. I know it has to have a cliffhanger but Jay’s reaction and the way things were done… It looked more like he was having a tantrum or something.
Overall I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of this books from Libby Cole. I really enjoy her style of writing. It was very well done, not so fast, not so slow in the plot department. The dialogue make sence. The hot scenes where steaming hot. I have no complains about her writing except for that ending… I have to see how the next book develops though, because Jay just… yeah… He just made a mayor mistake in my opinion *stick her tongue out and goes away*
““Hmm,” He narrowed his eyes at her in suspicion. “Prepared to watch sports, and she eats? Are you sure you’re not a cyborg sent here to lure me into some sort of trap?”“
““When you’re younger, you think you’ve got it all mapped out. People ask you what you’ll do when you grow up, and you tell them, so confidently. This weird timeline of when you’ll achieve certain milestones, and who you think will be there with you to celebrate. Then you get older and you realise it’s just so much… messier. So much is out of your control”“
Libby Cole was an avid fan of romance books before deciding to do what she loved, and become a writer of them too.
Now you can often find her holed up in a cafe in her home town of Wellington, New Zealand, typing up her latest love story while having the fifth coffee of the day.
