The first is moving away from her mother with a man who she thought was the one right up until she caught him and her best friend in a compromised position. The second is that her mother passed away suddenly right after she moved away. When she goes to be with her father, she finds their relationship is even more strained. She can't stay there but she takes her mother's laptop and finds her wish list of place ...more

A great romantic quick read. This novella is set in one of California's vineyards. It doesn't get much more romantic than that. Being a novella, the storyline was quick and you don't get all the emotions and events that would connect the characters. However, I still felt the chemistry between Chase and Hope. I enjoyed the romantic setting and I think that lent to a sweet story and budding relationship for Chase and Hope.
Overall a good novella that was light and sexy without being too angsty or

Short, sweet inspiring love story of two destined hearts! My expectations for a L.K. Collins book are always blown away as they deliver each time!

One of my favorite moments of this story.. "The room around us seems to spin. My body is racing with adrenaline, wanting so much more to happen than a kiss hot enough to set the world on fire. But that is what I've realized in the short time I've known him- he makes me want to do crazy things."

Hope and Chase are sure to melt your heart! Their attracti

A Review of St. Helena Getaway by LK Collins

Hope and Chase - 5+++++ Stars

This was a short, quick read, but soooo worth it! I definitely want to read the other book/s in the St. Helena Kindle World. Excited to see what else Ms. Collins has in store for us over the next couple of weeks.

St. Helena Getaway is a super short read but I promise you that once you get started you will not be able to put it down.

I could read about Chase and Hope all day long. I want so much more. This is the perfect short read to snuggle up with.

Chase is sure to leave you wanting so much more! Love it and I can't wait for book two.

There was something about Colt and I am so excited to find out what it is.

Chase knows how to give a woman those feel good shivers, "eff! She has no idea how badly I wanna skip dinner and keep doing what we’re doing. “We do. But this—” I kiss her harder, smashing my lips against hers in a brief but demanding movement—“ isn’t finished,” I say pulling away." I liked this story, it was a quick little feel good read.

I'm still trying to figure out how LK does it. The duo manages to pack so much steamy, heartfelt goodness into one book, but this time, they did it with a novella.
A woman on a journey to find where she belongs and a man who has just the place for her at his inn.
Hope decides to start over and heads to California, where she planned to visit with her mother. Chase is looking for more out of life and finds it instantly with Hope. I love a good insta-love with some super sexy chemistry. Perfect qui

The blurb pf this book dragged me and when I got it I thought I got the wrong file because it was short, I almost have a heart attack at the end because I really wanted more of Hope and Chase.

Hope is looking for a place to belong, after a bad relationship with a guy who betrayed her, she wants to find a place to be herself, she thinks that place is with her father but when she betrays her too she looks for comfort in the promise she made her mom and that how she ends in St. Helena.

I sat here agonizing for a while about what to write, as I find myself very conflicted. On one hand, I LOVED this super short & highly sexy story, but on the other, IT WAS TOO SHORT! And since this brilliant & sexy writing duo is one my very favorite addictions, short is no bueno with me. Makes me want to cry like a big b*tch baby. However, it was impressive what they got accomplished in such a short time. This storyline was fast paced, very sexy, totally engrossing, with an added in a d ...more

Another story in the world of St. Helena shows us just how amazing small-town life can be.

Hope has suffered a great disappointment and is searching for meaning to her life. She comes to the town her late mother once told her they would travel to together and finds Chase, handsome and kind. As the owner of the inn she stays in, he wants to make her want to stay, hoping he can also make her want him. There is a strong connection between the two, making their attraction blossom at a fast pace.

St. Helena Getaway is a short but SEXY, sweet little story by LK Collins...written as only THEY can!

Hope is on a journey...a journey to find somewhere that she feels like she belongs, somewhere she can call "home". She decides to go to the one place that she and her mother planned to visit, in the hope of finding her place...what she finds is so much MORE!

Chase has never met anyone he felt THIS kind of instant connection to, but will Hope stay or will she feel the need to c

This book is magic, LL Collins is magic! The story of this book made me feel in the clouds, goosebumps and a feeling of a full heart.

The story of love and romance of this book was perfect. Chase and Hope were perfect for each other, oh god! Everyone need a Chase in her life.

The vineyard, the place and a lost Hope looking for herself and finding the most epic love evah!

Thank you LK for giving me this, for making me feel so full of amazing things, feelings like love, your writing is perfection and

Hope has had her heartbroken. She has been looking for somewhere to call home after traveling from city to city for six months. When she lands in St. Helena she is dropped into Chase’s life.
Chase has stars in his eyes from the moment he lays eyes on Hope. He doesn’t know how far to let himself fall knowing she will be gone to another city before long.
I loved Hope and Chase’s chemistry. Can’t wait for Colt’s book.

St. Helena Getaway is a quick, fun read. You will fall in love with Hope and Chase's story. The dynamic duo of L.K. Collins does an outstanding job placing the reader right in the middle of beautiful wine country with the two characters.

If you're looking for a fast-paced book that is well written and will leave you longing for more, then definitely check out this Kindle World read.

I fell in love with this story. Hope is a woman alot of us can relate to. She's not quite sure where she belongs. That's until Chase comes into her life. They are two people meant to be together. She had to kiss some frogs but she finally found her prince. I cannot wait to read more of LK Collin's work.

This book was a super fast quick read, but man was it good! It’s perfect if you don’t have much time, can’t wait to see what comes next.
She has been through a lot. Only to pick up and leave. Once on the road she knows where she has to go after picking up her moms laptop. It’s the perfect place and when she gets there she meets someone who will forever chance her life.

The sweetest

Chase and Hope have an instantaneous attraction turned true love. It’s straight fairytale stuff in this book and if it wasn’t so dang sweet it’d be gross. I loved the characters, loved the writing, and loved the story. It’s the perfect short, sweet romance.

St Helena Getaway is a fun, quick and easy read set in a cute little town!! I'm not always a big fan of novellas because it's over before I can really get into it or I feel the story is rushed. That being said I didn't feel that way with this novella! I quickly connected with Hope's character and was excited to read her story! I loved the instant bond and chemistry between Chase and Hope!

Hope is on the move, getting out of a bad relationship. She is just passing through Chase's town when sparks fly.
It heats up quick and before you know it, the story is over. I loved getting the HEA!

LK Collins is the naughty alter ego for the husband-and-wife duo behind multiple bestselling and international bestselling novels. This real-life couple is downright dirty in the bedroom, which bleeds through the pages of their steaming hot stories. While LK writes the books, Mr. Collins, the tattooed god himself, is the mastermind behind so much of the page-turning sexiness.
