This is book 3 in the Heart of the Family series. I could not wait for Rye’s story and Stacy Eaton did not disappoint. This book has some very true-life issues. I laughed, I cried, and, in the end, I sighed.
Rye decided to take his honeymoon by himself after it was revealed on his wedding day that his fiancé was pregnant with another mans child.
Amy was sent to the Caribbean Island, to fill in for another reporter, to write an article on a famous chef. In doing so she had to leave behind her sic

This is one of my favorite books by Ms. Eaton. This book touched my heart, and I even had a few tears. Rye Waterman is at the church waiting to marry Autumn when he finds out she is pregnant with another man’s baby. He calls the wedding off, calls his travel agent, and goes to the Caribbean island by himself to get away. He goes to check in and a woman named Amy Black cuts in front of him. She laughs her head off when he tells her his name. She ends up being in the bungalow next to his. The two ...more

I have come to really love listening to this series and was looking forward to this audiobook.
The story belongs to Rye Waterman , the twin of Roan, whom we met in book three. It’s also a story that will make you wonder how about the validity of fate and how it sometimes has a hand a someone’s life, and that six degrees of separation might truly be a concept.
When Rye leaves his bride at the altar after her deceit, he decides to take the honeymoon trip by himself. Wanting a quiet, uneventful trip

When we were introduced to Rye in bk 2, his twin brother’s story, I wasn’t feeling the warm and fuzzies towards him...until we learned that his witchy fiancée had cheated on him. Rye’s story starts up where bk 2 left off...with him leaving his cheating fiancée at the altar. He decides to spend some time alone on what should have been his honeymoon. Rye doesn’t expect to meet an interesting magazine writer and have a fling, but he does and is smitten. Then she disappears as a hurricane approaches ...more

I am totally in love with this series! Stacy Eaton keeps the fun coming with book three in her Heart of the Family series. It's about Rye who we met previously, breaking off his wedding due to his cheating fiance and is now on his honeymoon. He meets Amy who is away on business and the two connect right away. When things get heated though, Amy is adamant that she only wants it to last while on vacation. Is Rye willing to agree? The chemistry between these two is so strong, we can only keep rooti ...more

A beautiful romance listen...while this is book 3 in Eaton's Heart of the Family series and can be read as a stand alone, I really think that you get so much more if the series is read / listened to in order. Repeat characters come into play and the series just gets better and better with each read. This is Rye and Amy's story and it's a beautiful and emotion one. Both Rye and Amy have lingering hurts from past relationships - some more recent than others and while Rye is ready to put his heart ...more

Book 3 of the Heart of the Family series is a must read!
After finding out while literally standing at the altar, that his bride to be is a cheating liar and pregnant by another man, Rye Waterman leaves her standing there and goes on his tropical honeymoon alone in hopes to drink her out of his mind! Little did he know that he’d end up meeting the girl of his dreams the minute he arrived at the tropical resort!
Amy Black is a writer for a food magazine and has a chance of a lifetime to interview

This is the third book in the series and my favorite so far. We got to know Rye in his brother's book. Where things left off for Rye in that book had me eagerly anticipating this one. I loved Amy and Rye together. Things move fast for them, but you can't deny their true feelings. As a reader I could feel the connection. Too bad for Rye that Amy just wants a fling and once they leave the island no more contact. My heart hurts for Amy what she's experiencing with her daughter. A few delig

Even thou this book can be read as a standalone, I was really glad I read Roses and Champagne kisses first where we get to meet Rye Waterman for the first time.
Rye left the woman that did him wrong, meets a funny , beautiful stranger, tragedies tears them apart but might bring them back to one another. I was shock with some realisation in the book and that little turn of events made me happy !
Two strangers collided, fell, tore each other’s heart but found their way back. At first I was septic

3rd in series. An excellent read! This book had all the emotions wrapped up - from the beginning it's a roller coaster - a book you cannot put down. It pulls you in and won't let you go. The writing is crisp, the dialogue real, and the situations can and have happened. Really like the flow of this story. while this can be read as a standalone I recommend reading from the beginning as there are lots of small things you won't want to miss. Sometimes what seems like the worst thing that happens tur ...more

Do you believe in love at first sight? Read this story and you will. Amy is sent to a resort island to interview the chef even though there is a hurricane brewing. He is not known for giving interviews so her bosses don't really care about her safety. Just the interview. But when she gets there she finds that the chef has left the island on a personal matter. She runs into the gorgeous Rye. He is supposed to be on his honeymoon but his fiancee did the dirty on him so he went alone. The hot and s ...more

I absolutely loved this book. It's my favourite one of the series, so far.
Rye and Amy meet in the Caribbean - he left his (cheating & pregnant) fiancee at the altar, she is there to work. They bond over beers on the beach, and are soon enjoying a romantic liaison. But when the hotel find Amy's missing passport, she rushes off the island - before a storm hits - to get home to her sick daughter.
I laughed, cried and sighed at this book. And the twist at the end was great.

Rye’s Story At Last

When last we saw Rye, he’d just found out his fiancé had not only cheated on him but was pregnant by the other man. He had left her at the altar and taken off. Now we find out just where he went, who he met, and what a tale it is! A woman with an incredible laugh, a tropical paradise, and a hurricane all lead to some hot nights and something more. A wonderful read!

Oh this book! It’s number 3 in the series and I’m in love again. With Rye and Amy’s story fate was definitely involved in their fast moving relationship. With a hurricane baring down on them can their island romance turn into something more if they make it out safely. This is a devour in one sitting read. So, so good!!!! I need more please!

The stories of twins Rye and Roan Waterman are the best of the best of Stacy Eaton’s series Heart of the Kitchen. Rye’s heartbreaking wedding disaster leaves him ready to see what saucy chef Amy Black can offer. Hot romance and then what? This has a few heart-wrenching twists that may bring a tear while waiting to see what’s coming next. Excellent must read 5-star book.

Have to say that was a surprise ending. I started the story around noon. Took breaks for my obsession of finding free books to add to my nearing 40000 title Amazon library and tried to sleep. Had to get up for a usual visit to the throne and decided I’d read another few pages around 11. It’s nearing 2am. And I find I finished it.

Never saw those last few chapters coming. Loved it

Neither Amy or Rye really want to be on the island expecting a hurricane, but they are ready to make the most of their situations. I love how they connected and spent time getting to know one another. Amy can't seem to let her guard all the way down and risk being rejected by another man.

Orchids & Hurricane Kisses review

Orchids & Hurricane Kisses is the third sweet romance in the Heart of the Family series written by author Stacy Eaton.

Fun summer read. I always enjoy Eaton's style of switching the POV with each chapter. The "small world" aspect was fun. I can't wait to find out what happens next.
