Summary

When a little rest and relaxation turns into something more...

Julia Maguire can't wait to spend two weeks in Hawaii with her best friends. She's been dreaming about this trip for years and all she wants is to lay on a sandy beach with an icy cocktail in her hand. But those vacation goals change the moment she meets Reed Baxter.

Reed is a busy doctor with family demands. She's in Hawaii to let go, not find love, and she's not interested in any commitment. Adding a little heat to the vacation seems like a good idea as long as there aren't expectations for anything more.

You will love it.

Great story. Hot, butch, doctor, mom and sexy woman with intimacy issues meet on vacation.
The kids were adorable. The sex steamy. Abby Craden is just amazing. Always gets it right, even the kids. Couldn't stop listening.

Loved this book

Already listening to the next one. I chose this book because of Abby Craden, she could narrate the phone book and it will be amazing, well it was a good choice, this is a great vacation book. The only thing is the voice she chose for Kate, it is too childish and as she is the main character of the second book ...

Loved it

This was my first book by this author and I totally loved it, the storyline was great and the two main characters had amazing chemistry. I fell in love with this the twins as they made the storyline even better. It did start out a tad slow but one it got going I was hooked. Abby Craden is a gem and i feel that it doesn’t matter what she is reading to me she always makes it work

A typical romance novel, this time for lesbians

This is a sweet, uncomplicated, entertaining romance novel that hits all the right notes and woul completely unremarkable if it had straight characters. But the fact that it's an LGBT novel makes it unique. Sometimes you just crave something light, romantic but not cheesy, easy but not garbage and this is exactly that. The characters are well defined but not deep, the dialogue flows easily, naturally and sound like real people talking. Nothing is overly dramatic, unrealistically or stiff.

My only very minor-criticism is about the sex scenes. Sex scenes are hard to write, either they come off as way overly cheesy with language that too flowery & polite and as consequences unrealistic and stiff. Or the writer choose realism - with words, actions and attitudes that we all use but that risks coming off as cold or vulgar or just plain uninteresting. In this case the writer choose natural language and actions (which I appreciate) but couldn't achieve that balance with romance so necessary in this genre. Abby Craden can make watching paint dry sound sensual - really I'm addicted to her. But this is an area that writer needs improvement.

Despite that I would recommend 1000% when you just need to unwind, have a few laughs and a few "awwww."
