She’s on a mission to reunite with her soul mate. He’s the fool who agreed to help her.
A year ago Claudia was Hollywood’s most sought-after actress, now the only role she can get is a bit part in a tv series filmed in Hawaii. She can’t afford to say no, and Hawaii offers something more than CPR for her career—it’s the home of her first love, a man she’s been dreaming of for six years.
Henry is the best in the business. The fearless stuntman is used to standing in for the leading man. He’s never wanted to be the star until Claudia saunters onto set wearing the shortest shorts he’s ever seen.
Her long legs, killer smile, and biting wit make his heart race like he’s in a speeding car heading straight for a crash. When an unorthodox bet throws them together, he reluctantly agrees to help her track down her long-lost love.
Now he just has to keep himself from doing something stupid, like falling in love with her.
This Retro Hawaiian Romance set in 1968 contains piggy-back rides up Diamond Head Crater, skinny dipping in paradise, and a pair of friends who can’t keep their hands off each other.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating between Henry & Claudia’s perspectives.
This is book 3 in Jill Brashear’s Aloha series. It can definitely be listened to as a stand alone. However, there are small “nods” in this one that I think make the series best listened to in order.
Awe! These two. I admit it took me a little to get over wanting to yell at Claudia, “He’s right in front of you!”… but that’s part of the twists of this unconventional pairing story. Somehow Brashear manages to write a slow burn relationship with seriously sexy times.
There was some repetition in the characters’ internal thoughts. However, I continued to enjoy the details Brashear brings to really immerse the listener into life in the 60s, the atmosphere of Hawaii, and TV show production. Henry’s stuntman scenes were particularly engaging.
Plus, I love a good epilogue and this one was lovely. Happy tears!
Loved the duo of Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright. Hamilton is a perfect fit for the mostly easy going Henry and I was especially drawn in by Cartwright’s Claudia in the emotionally charged scenes. This was such an easy audio to fall into.
I received a free copy of this audiobook from Home Cooked Books and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
About the author:
I love history, and I love romance.
I’ve always written sexy stories. When I was in middle school, I got a week of detention for writing a serial soap opera about the relationships of my classmates (names changed of course). Let’s just say the saga wasn’t exactly PG! I didn’t let detention stop me, and now here I am an author of romance!
Why do I love romance? Because it gives characters the opportunity to grow. Love makes us better people. I believe the journey to finding love is the most important one we’ll ever take.
A common theme in my work is women coming to understand their power. In my books, you’ll find strong heroines blazing a path through history and stumbling over love along the way. You’ll also find intriguing men and sexy settings. I’m a sucker for happy endings, so you’ll find plenty of those, too.
I’m currently working on three different series set in different time periods and different locales. I plan to add one book a year in each series. Although I write in several different subgenres, all of my books will take you on an emotional, whole-hearted ride.
