This is the first book that I have read from this author and it was amazing! This action packed thrill ride will keep you begging for more as you furiously flip the pages to see what happens next. I loved the chemistry between Tiana and David, steamy hot and leaves you wanting more. The length of the story was just right and kept me satisfied with how the story flowed from one page to the next. The characters are well developed and the story flows easily! Kudos to Ms. Cozzone!

This is one of those books that grabs you from the first page. It doesn't matter if you need sleep, you will want to finish it because you need to know what happens. Tropical Dreams has everything in its exciting storyline. Its fast pace keeps you on edge with the suspense, betrayal and lies. It also keeps you guessing who exactly is behind the hit on Tiana. And of course we have the growing attraction between the two main characters David and Tiana. I simple loved this story, the ending was jus ...more

Tropical Dreams provides a little bit of everything. Suspense, yep. Romance, yep. Drama, yep. Violence, yep, that, too.

Tiana Alexander is the beautiful daughter of a well-connected, notorious street-wise man named Tony Alexander. Tony has a sketchy business practice. Crime and violence are no strangers to him or his business partners. Tiana loves her father dearly, but despises this part of his life.

Tiana had fallen in love with Justin, the man of her dreams, or so she thought. She was ready to

This was the first book I have read by Kelly Cozzone and it will definitely not be my last!

This book had such intensity from the first page to the last and all I wanted to do was keep reading and not put the book down. The character development was awesome and although my intuition for some of the characters was right I still needed more of them!! There is so much action between all the different characters and everyone seems to have ties to each other and it's trying to sort everything ou

This book was filled with suspense from the start. Although you have your suspicions from the beginning with the twists and turns we don't really find out what happens until the end. I could not put it down as i could not wait to see who the bad guy was, big surprises and danger arose with each turn of the page. Tiana and David are thrust into each other when a threat against Tianas life comes in. Once they meet he is surprised about his immediate connection with her. Will he be able to keep his ...more

Cozzone creates an elaborate storyline with realistic characters in Tropical Dreams. Tiana, who is smart and beautiful struggles with her past life and it's reality. While entrusting her dreams to her best friend she sets out to make them come true. However, jealousy and death have followed her from her past and now wreaks havoc on her. Will she make it out alive? Will the one man entrusted with her life keep her safe?

Great read, it will keep you on your toes.

Action packed love story, my favorite kind.

The plot of this book was very good. It was a love story with action and suspense that kept you turning the pages. However there were some editing mistakes that did make it hard to follow at times, jumping from one character's thoughts to another with no interruption in text. Even with the errors the book was overall a good read

Great suspense

I liked this book. Enjoyed all the suspense and twists and turns. Loved Tiana. only thing I really wish there was were more scene breaks. I really enjoyed the book though and I say great job Kelly.

Tropical dreams.. or is it nightmare in the tropics?!?! Awesome book full of mystery suspense and romance that always keeps you guessing. Without giving anything away, it definitely is not an easy guess on who put out the contract. Didn't want to put it down! I won this book in a Facebook contest, and with this being the first time I've read a book by this author, im super happy with it and hopeful that these characters stories continue in a series!!

I borrowed this book from a friend for our book club reading choice and wasn't sure what to expect. I don't typically pick this genre but hey, that's why I joined the book that I'd be introduced to authors and books that are outside of my typical comfort zone.

In my opinion, this was light reading fluff that keep my guessing. I usually find it easy to guess who did it and like the rewarding feeling at the end when I guess right. Makes me feel as smart as the author so kudos to Kelly C

The only thing that kept me from giving this book 2 stars was the great beginning. The book started with great suspense and the start of a good plot. The book deteriorated from there unfortunately.

First off was this book edited? Sentences with 'to' instead of 'too', 'into' when it should have been 'in to', or 'hysteric' when it should be 'hysterical'. And that's just a few examples.

Second, the characters on their own are good, but the relationship development between Tiana and David is almost n

I love this book! Kelly is a very talented author. Every story I have read has outstanding details. With this book, I felt like I was in St. Lucia, it makes me want to go find a bar/club with her description of Tiana's place. David Murphy was there to protect and keep an eye out for her. His intentions were to protect her without her knowing, and never thought he would've fallen in love with her. The trials these two go through and stay together is a strong bond.

This was a book that kept me if the edge of my seat the whole time. If you read the description and think “ oh this sounds good” then you will be in for a treat!
The romance between the hero and heroine was amazing, it was hot but not too hot, and if felt real without being overbearing.
Overall this was a good read, I was very impressed. This is my first book by this author, and while I finished it late into the night, I woke up thinking about it.

Tropical Tripe

I gave this book two stars instead of one only because I did manage to finish it. The story line had possibilities but the plot deteriorated into nonsense. There were numerous grammatical errors, with the author using 'to' instead of 'too' and 'your' instead of 'you're' throughout the book. Call me picky, but where was the editor? I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

Tropical Dreams by Kelly Cozzone was a great book. Tropical Dreams was Tiana's business tat she always dreamt of. But there is always death, betrayal and pain following her due to who her father is. I enjoyed reading about Tiana and David. David made her want to love and trust people again. Little does she know someone wants her dead. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by Kelly Cozzone.
"Tropical Dreams" by Kelly Cozzone is the perfect mix of suspenseful drama, conspiracy, betrayal, and a splash of romance. If you like an exciting story without the heavy explicit romance stuff in it then this will be a great read for you!
