"was like one of those really hot peppers that started off mild but ended with you in hives at the hospital, sweating your balls off, questioning your insane lack of common sense for indulging in such a poison"
She is intelligent, strong, and passionate. Keahilani is what we want our daughters to be. She is what I crave to see in more of our literature. What I would hope to see in more women in future.
Thrust into the role of matriarch, she provides and cares for her family the best way she can. All be it, questionable methods are used, she plays the cards she has been dealt and plays them well. She is also known as Pele, an alter ego chosen from a volcano goddess from hawaiian mythology to keep her not so proper business dealings separate from her mainstream life. Pele, demands attention and respect. She becomes the embodiment of the goddess herself many times. Never more so than when we witness her erupt and unleash her fury on those that dare cross her.
The sex scenes can only be described as animalistic, greedy, and HOT! A woman that knows what she wants and takes it! She makes no excuses for her dark and rough desires. The power struggle that takes place every time Blake and Keahilani are together physically is explosive. They consume such raw need for the other that it is erotica at it's best.
The story touches on some mystical hawaiian folklore, and while I would usually frown upon such things in a novel such as this, it was woven in so perfectly that I am once again in awe of author Kendall Grey.
This is the 1st in the series but there is NO CLIFF! And while there are some other great characters in this novel that I know you will be drawn to, I wanted to concentrate on what I wish to see in more novels.
