This is the third story in the Paradise Key series but they can each be read as a standalone . . . . All the stories feature young women who met whilst spent their summers in Paradise Key as teenagers and have kept in touch as best friends ever since. There were five of them but one of them, Lily, has tragically died. The remaining four meet up again whilst attending her funeral and each story focusses on one of the friends - in this case it is Sofia Vargas who has the starring role.

For Sofía Paradise Key always felt like home. She spent many happy summers with her favorite aunt and found her best friends on the island. Sofía dreams of making Paradise Key her permanent home. The local resort, a place that only holds special memories, is for sale. It needs plenty of work, but Sofía has a clear vision of what it should be turned into and would be the ideal new owner. However, she isn't the only one bidding on the resort. Nathan, the man she used to love, is after it as well. ...more
This was a cute closed door romance. Glad the past payoff offer didn't devolve into drama, because that's often what happens. I could have done with less mentions of how important family is, but that's my problem.

Good book if you're in the mood for a low stakes romance.

She is back on the island after a while and she is intent on buy the resort, come to find out that the person who is bidding against her is her ex Nate. While they are trying to fight attractions, secrets come out, the villain is still the villain, and eventually love will conquer all.

3.5 stars. Loved the tropical setting, the bid to renovate a deserted resort, and the second chance romance. Sweet with good tension, fade to black (which surprised me)! Loved the Spanish dialogue included throughout, the Puerto Rican culture, and Paul — memorable supporting character.

The book opens with the loss of Sofia’s best friend and I wish there had been more about this grief and time with her other best friends that included more dialogue...

Can’t wait to read more by this author!

I liked the strong heroine, Sofia, who is determined to follow her dream and buy the resort she worked at as a teenager. It turns out her old lover and love of her life, Nathan is also trying to buy the resort for his family. Lots of good stuff about how they each feel about family and their obligations to each other. I wish the novel would have been a little longer to develop their backstory a little more...but that's a pretty minor quibble. The plot hangs a lot on conflicts that could be resol ...more

Resort to Love is a second chance romance between Nate and Sof, who were friends with benefits for years but decided to call it off. Now they meet again in circumstances that are affecting both of their lives. The first thing I have to say is that if you're in the Northern Hemisphere, you NEED to read this book during the summer. It has the perfect atmosphere to make you feel like you're in a paradise in this small town. Priscilla Oliveras is inc
I voluntarily read a advanced reader's copy of this book.

Paradise Key, book three, Resort to love by Priscilla Oliveras. A great addition to the series. A possible second chance at love storyline, I love the small beach town setting. I look forward to seeing what the next book in the series brings us and hope to read more by this author.

Priscilla Oliveras is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. I’ve read the first two books in her Matched to Perfection trilogy (and am eagerly awaiting the third!), so I was very excited when the ever amazing Sil tweeted that she had a new book coming out. Resort to Love is the third of four books in the Paradise Keys series, each written by a different author, and I initially read it as a stand-alone – though I immediately went back and requested the other three books afterwards!

We got a hint of Sofia’s plans for the abandoned resort in the earlier stories, and now her plan is coming to life with a few complications. One of those complications is in the form of the man she’d loved since her teens but could never truly have at her side forever. Nate was here, right back where they began and surprisingly, he’s also bidding on the resort that Sofia has her dreams set on. Why would his hotel family want this place back when they’d sold it off in

I am a big fan of the second-chance love story, and Resort to Love was a mildly entertaining way to spend a quiet summer morning.

Sofia and Nate fell in love as teenagers. He was the owner’s son of the resort where Sofia worked during her summers growing up. As they got older, Sofia realized she and Nate would never have a future, so she told him to stop contacting her. Now, two years after their last contact, they discover they are both bidding to purchase the resort where they met and fell in l

I'm a sucker for a cute story about love and what a pleasant surprise it was that one of the main characters is Latina. It's not often that I come across Latina/Latino MCs, in movies or in books, so to be able to see some of my culture infused in this book, was a treat. I loved the Spanish words and phrases placed throughout story and how seamlessly they were translated into English, so that non Spanish speakers can enjoy the language too.

The setting for the story is also perfect for this time

I really enjoyed reading Resort to Love by Priscilla Oliveras, book three in The Paradise Key series. This is a second chance love story between Sofía and Nate. While in Paradise Key for her friend’s funeral, Sofia decides to buy the old and rundown resort, that holds many memories from her youth; both happy and sad. However, when she discovers her old flame Nate is also interested in the resort, Sofía realizes protecting her heart might be her biggest challenge. Nate has tried to be the good so ...more

A new beginning for two people who more than deserve it.

Former lovers, Sofía Vargas and Nate Hamilton, are brought together once again on Paradise Key where they are both interested in buying the old Paradise Key Resort, where they first met and fell in love. Each has their own reason wanting to buy the Resort. For Sofia, it’s the nostalgia of it. Paradise Key resort holds some of her best memories and she would love to bring the resort back to life again. She has been running a B&B in Key W

I truly enjoyed “Resort to Love” which is the third book in the Paradise Key series about four friends who have returned to the small beach town where they spent their summer vacations when they were teens and became close friends. Unfortunately, they are back because the fifth member of the group, Lily, was killed in a car accident.

Sofia returns to Paradise Key for the funeral and also to bid on the resort where she worked as a teen and where she met Nate whose family owned the resort then. His

This is the story of a second chance. Can they really happen?

Sofia is returning to Paradise Key because she has to say goodbye to a dear friend. She also has an idea to purchase a property that means a lot to her. She has finished school and studied hotel management and has experience in this field. She feels that her ideas would make this place succeed once again.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is book 3 in the Paradise Key series. Each book is written by a different author and tells the story of one of the four friends that returned to say goodbye to thei fifth bestie who was killed in an accident. This book is the story of Sofía who wants to come back to Paradise Key and buy the old resort she worked at as a teen. She had gone to college to study hotel management and was running bed and breakfasts in Key West. ...more

Priscilla Oliveras’ Resort to Love is book three of the Paradise Key series. Four friends have returned to mourn the loss of the fifth of their group who died due to a tragic accident. Sofia’s story is one of the most self-actualization stories in the series so far. I liked this woman. I liked how she stood up to an arrogant wealthy jerk when she was nineteen. I liked her sense of self preservation and her wariness, especially with Nathan.

Oliveras has written a clean, sweet second-chance love story with a heroine anyone can cheer for. At the story's heart is loyalty and family—or familia, as Sofia calls it (her family is Puerto Rican)—and how it can tear people apart and bring them together. Set all around Florida, from the fictional Paradise Key to Key West, RESORT TO LOVE brings real estate scion Nate and boot-strap local girl Sofia back together after they were driven apart years before. Sofia has plans of her own now, and she ...more
I was lucky enough to get approved for an ARC of this. Having read Priscilla two other releases in her Matched to Perfection series i was excited to read this. It was a sweet quick read! And even without reading the first book of this connected series, you won't be lost. It stands on its own perfectly, and you do get mention of the couple from the first book.

Nate and Sofia let their different backgrounds come between them before. Nate let his father control his life and Sofia let her insecurities come between her and the man she loves.

Sofia comes from a family that love and support each other very much. Nate comes from a family that barely tolerate each other.

Years ago, they were both together when Nate told Gabby he was getting engaged to another woman to please his father. Nate’s reluctance to go against his father’s. I really enjoyed this book

They had a glorious summer together and stayed in touch even after going their separate ways. They come from two different worlds and when Nathan chose to do his father's bidding Sophia cut all ties.

Resort To Love, book two in the multi-author Paradise Keys series, is a sweet and light story that stands alone well. Perfect reading for a day at the beach, this story has a delightful Mexican flavour throughout as author Priscilla Oliveras has peppered the story with Mexican language and tidbits of Mexican food, religion and culture.
The story stands alone well, and is filled with warm and caring characters - family is something that is very important to our heroine, Sofia Vargas. She and her

This book is your standard love story. Childhood romance, they separate because you know, life. They come back more mature. Both of them want to buy the resort that was a part of their childhood. He wants to because his rich dad wants to control everything. Her, because her friend just passed and she feels a connection to all of her friends and him there. It’s always good to read a fluffy book from time to time. Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to review this book. #ResortToLove #NetGalley

Overall, I had mixed feelings about this book; it didn't match my enjoyment of the others I've read by the author.
