I love any work Beverly Jenkins does and this is the second time reading the work of Ms. Overton. These two novels took me away to far and distance lands and I became one with my other self.

Hawaii Magic by Beverly Jenkins was a charming little story that brought a smile to my face. Over worked Anita Hunt is essentially forced to take a vacation to Hawaii by her boss. Her pilot, Steve Blair, has the honor of taking her from California to Hawaii. Because of her frosty demeanor, Steve deems it best to stay away from her, but finds it difficult when he also ends up being the one to take her on the helicopter tour of Hawaii. When their copter goes down, and they are forced to survive to ...more

Island For Two is two short stories about island love. The first story written by Beverly Jenkins, takes place in Hawaii. It is the Story of Anita Hunt and Steve Blair. Anita is a workaholic attorney who is forced to take a vacation by her boss where she meets her pilot Steve. When they have to make a cash landing, things heat up between these two. This story seemed a little rushed to me at the end. Maybe because it started off slow and it should have jumped off at the start with it being a shor ...more

I don't know, man. I like cheesy romance as much as the next girl. But I just cannot stand this "we literally met two days ago, I know absolutely nothing about this person except how to locate their genitalia BUT THEY ARE MY SOULMATE HERE'S AN ENGAGEMENT RING YAYYYY" garbage. It's so convenient and lazy.

If you want a happy ending, build a decent story first.

3 Stars - Hawaii Magic
A quickie packed with some funny one liners, and a few good love scenes.

3.5 Stars - Fiji Fantasy
I liked this story a bit more than the last. The story got right down to business, there was no beating around the bush which is essential in these short stories. Connie and Michael had a fiery coming together. It was really passionate and also super sweet at the same time. I don't want to give it away, but Connie's trickery was a bit far fetched to me, but I was glad they were a

I read this while in Hawaii...Wow. This book caused me to take a helicopter tour and I was kibda hoping for a crash...(Not really) but it cause me to see Hawaii in a whole new light. what a great read.

I travel to romantic islands as I enjoyed reading about the love of two couples. The geographical descriptions were breathtaking.

Two very quick reads by two authors I like. I liked Fiji Fantasy by Elaine Overton best but I wish it was maybe 100+ pages longer. Would have loved more info on what happened between Brian and Annie when Connie moved out, how Brian 'took care of' Nathan, and Connie's new independence and long engagement. In Hawaii Magic by Beverly Jenkin's I really hated the mother and would have loved to see her reaction to her upcoming wedding in an epilogue. Maybe she would have had Greg crash the wedding.

I thoroughly loved it. Two novelettes about fantasy love on a tropical island. Total fantasy, with the romance, the rich, gorgeous, nice heroes. But it was a quick and enjoyable escape. Makes me want to visit both Fiji and Kuaui!

Reading this book brought back memories of my trip to Kauai and the helicopter trip that we took. Yes it is a trashy romance novel....but it's a fun read and sometimes you just need that to escape the real world for a while.

I very like Beverly Jenkin's stories. This was a good and enjoyable story. I also liked Elaine Overton's although it was a very short story.
