About this ebook

She likes Hawaii, but she just might love Boston...

Still stinging from her recent divorce, Emily Buzzly heads to majestic Hawaii to soothe her wounds. But once she arrives on Oahu, Emily discovers that a man she assumes is a beach bum is in fact her personal tour guide, hired by her sister. With his long hair and tattoos, Boston Rondibett is everything Emily detests—despite his sun-kissed surfer body. And with her straight-laced, executive persona, Emily is everything Boston rebels against. But both have a lot to learn about making snap judgments...

As it turns out, Boston’s real job, the one he truly cares about, is running his soup kitchen and homeless shelter. Embarrassed by her assumptions, rather than lazy beach days, Emily soon finds herself feeding the hungry, and even involved in the search for an AWOL soldier. And to Boston’s surprise, she’s loving every minute of it—and he’s loving seeing her loosen her chignon and be the admirable, beautiful woman she is. As each works through the challenges of the past, these two very different people just might find their hearts are on the very same page...

I really loved this one! The combination of a unique storyline and very complex characters made this one great read. The author slowly peeled away the layers of the characters showing us that there is far more to people than the facade they present to others. While Boston and Emily seem like the most unlikely of pairs, they may just be what the other needs to bring balance to their lives. While this is the second in a series, I haven't read the first (but I definitely will be), I didn't have any problem reading this one. Can't wait to see what other intriguing stories this author has for us. I highly recommend this one.
