"But when an adventure-bound guy, who could have anything, sits in front of a girl with enough fire in her to make every step of the journey ahead a glorious flight? She becomes the only thing he wants."
"I'd definitely stayed far from the safe path. Leilani Kealoha? Made wandering into an untamed jungle worth every dangerous step."
"And at the moment I'd found me? So had the most amazing girl."
“But when an adventure-bound guy, who could have anything, sits in front of a girl with enough fire in her to make every step of the journey ahead a glorious fight? She becomes the only thing he wants.”
“If we don’t search out our best selves, how can we expect to give that to anyone else?”
“The wave can kill…or save.
Its staggering force humbled—kicked my ass often. But when I pointed toward the curling crest, shot up from its thundering energy, then caught perfect air…the rest of the world faded.
Gravity…ruler of all.”
“A primal urge vibrated under my skin: to prove to her whatever electric thing was happening between us sparked hotter than something physical, that we were connected on a deeper level.”
“The longer I laid there, the more my mind came alive—wishing all people valued every last person. One race, a human nation. Earth and its inhabitants. Wars would cease. The destruction of the planet would halt. We’d all work toward the common goal of helping mankind more than just survive…we’d seek to flourish as our best selves.”
To be able to make a better board without poisoning the environment?
“Pure genius… And you want me to represent the brand…” And by association, spread a message of conservation, protection of our planet.
Rule Breaker was a book that really got me, this story about Mason and Leilani was so romantic, heartwarming and full of sparks and good vibes.
Mason was looking for a change of scenery, far away from pressure, his parents, trying to find a meaning to his life. When all his friends are getting happy and achieving their dreams, he decided to grasp the nettle. And then Leilani happens. And everything changed for them.
Leilani was a young woman full of fire and fierce. Coming from a protective Hawaiian family, she wants to break free, to finally live. Until Mason and his charming ways. Is she willing to let him in her life, in spite of the hurdles in their way.
I had to say that I was surprised by how fast they clicked. It was a little confusing, but once you outdated that part, and I got into the story, it was just magnificent.
Two people who seemed more to have in common, secrets and a will to find their path in the world. Together they definitely make sense.
The authors make such an incredible work to bring the heat, the sexual tension with a hint of sweetness, Mason and Leilani were a stunning couple, bright and full of charm. The way they both described their feelings were gut-wrenching and demanding. I was seduced and rooting for that couple. They had to face people’s assumptions, racial tensions but together they were strong, wild and free. I loved seeing their relationship bloomed, with some inner battles to fight.
Mason was the rule breaker to Leilani guarded heart. It took some time to win her over, but reading their journey was a delightful and aspiring love story.
Romantic and poetic, it was a beautiful breath of fresh air. A love story against all odds. This book is my favorite book by Kat and Stone Bastion so far. Definitely. Embrace the beauty of the storyline and scenery places and don't feel afraid to surf on the wave, so worth it.
“Life is right in front of us. All we have to do is step out and grab it.”
Mase Price isn’t one to conform to society’s standards. He is happy where he is, enjoying life and searching for happiness in simplicity. But it takes one fiery island gal to make him think twice about his easy going life. Leilani interests him more than anyone ever has and he ends up going to the extremes to prove himself to her, even if that means sacrificing everything.
Leilani Kealoha can’t figure out how she found herself in such a dilemma, one minute she’s doing her brother a favor by finding the infamous surfer, Mase Price to compete on his custom made boards, and the next she’s fighting an inner battle to run as fast as she can from the blonde surfer boy that totally gets her. It’s not like Leilani to bond so quickly, especially with an outsider. Leilani has a difficult decision to make; stay true to her culture and her family or follow her heart.
When the book starts you get a very vague sense of who these two are and that made it difficult for me as a reader to understand the relationship between Leilani and Mase. Instead of feeling instant connection or even a slow melting desire, I got a hot headed, hormonal heroine that got mad all the time which made it hard for me to like her.
Mase and Leilani do have a few things in common though, one is surfing. They can run away for hours and get lost in the oceans wonders and in each other. They also have deep scars, one in particular is losing someone they both loved. And finally they both share the same values and that is to be one with yourself and the earth. To live in peace and good vibes only and that can only be achieved by living through love not conformity.
Unbreakable starts off with witty banter, the promise of a hot connection but gave me a lot of repetitive and confusing feelings which made the relationship fall flat. It is however a somewhat sad story as it has to do with forbidden love and what they go through as an interracial couple.
So, did this book make me want to go into debt and move to Hawai’i? Absolutley. Because no matter how I felt about the heroine, I absolutely felt like I was in Hawai’i enjoying the island life with the way everything was so beautifully described. Did it make me miss The Michaelson’s? You damn right it did. (I love you Cade *wink*) But unfortunately, my connection with Mase and Leilani as a whole fell short.
