Short, sweet and smokin’ HOT! ♥
Lana is returning to Maui, her beloved childhood home, on a business trip eight years after having her heart broken by the only man she’s ever loved. Her heart has never healed and she has never moved on. But little does she know, that despite all the years and miles separating them, he’s never forgotten her either.
“He made a little noise of sympathy in his throat, stroking my hair. “Oh, Lana,” he whispered. “I only ever seem to hurt you, no matter what I do.”
When they meet again, HOLY CHEMISTRY !! It’s mingled with a heavy undercurrent of emotions stemming from their unrequited love which added a nice depth to the story.
My heart just ached for them! They were both so clearly head over heals for each other and their connection was THERE! Lana wanted him so desperately, you could just feel it. And despite it being clear that he cared oh-so-deeply for her, there was something holding him back. Something she had to push through.
And my my my is this book HOT! Lana was no blushing virgin! She knew what she wanted and had no qualm about going after it. And Akira was just amazing. A wonderful big tattooed hero that nobody messed with who had always had this huge soft spot for his girl. But for so many reasons, he just didn’t feel like he deserved her.
I loved watching them come together and find each other again.
“I think I could stay like this forever, with you,” I told him quietly.
He pressed a cheek against my hair, wrapping his arms around my shoulders. “Why don’t you, then? Give me one good reason why you can’t…?”
In only about 100 pages, RK Lilley managed to wrap in the depth and emotion of a full length novel. I almost feel like it was more of a condensed novel than a short story. It was a fast, wonderful read with a happy ending that tugged my heart strings and made me blush and fan myself.
“I love you,” I said breathlessly…
“Good,” he murmured roughly, “because I’m keeping you forever.”
There are also cameos from James and Bianca and because of that, readers will get some slight spoilers as to the ending of the Up In The Air trilogy so if you absolutely want to keep yourself spoiler-free, I suggest you read those first. But if you don’t mind either way, this can technically be read as a stand alone.
See below for the Up In The Air series reading order and a teaser from Lana ♥
