This was a quick, fun read, but again, I have to stress how much I was not prepared for the helicopter crash. Really, REALLY urge people to read the summary, lol.

On a separate note, I really loved how unapologetic the heroine was about her career and its importance in her life and also the depiction of her family dynamics and that she got to stand up for herself. Really, really appreciated that.

Sometimes it takes a bad breakup and a forced vacation to make you discover what you REALLY want out of life. The love between Anita and Steve was very sweet. Watching it grow and seeing the things they were willing to do to capture the other's heart made me wish all relationships were this powerful and filled with the trust and excitement as their time together was.
Short and sweet! Attorney Anita Hunt works too hard and too long. So when her boss sends her on a forced vacation to Hawaii, she never, ever, expected to meet the man of her dreams during a helicopter crash. Pilot Steve Blair is the perfect man for Anita. However, Gregg, her sleazy, cheating fiancee may have a little something to say about that.

I feel like amazing isnt enough for this book. Ms. Bev only has a short amount of time to convince that the romance between Workaholic Anita and Carefree Steve will work and how they bring love to each others lives and sense of healing I really wanted to find Ferg's story. My favorite part is when Anita stands up to her mom and tells her and her plans to go to hell.

Hot Hot and more Hot

What can U say? Anita was destine for a life of work more work and boredom. After a forced vacation to Hawaii and broken engagement she blossomed and found true romance. Beverly Jenkins never fails to give you magic

What a delightful short story

Anita and Steve’s story was so sweet. They were fighting their attraction to one another at first. But once it was on and popping, they couldn’t get enough of one another. Nice ending.

Anita is a hard working lawyer in LA with a fiance, who's climbing the ladder in New York. Her mom is not her biggest supporter and her dad is pushing her to work. Her boss tells her that she is considering her for partner, but first wants her to take a vacation- to make sure she won't work herself to the ground when she gets to partner. So Anita goes to Hawaii. Relunctantly. She treats it as something to be checked off a to do list and has no plans to actually enjoy it. Then sh meets Steve, the ...more

Hawaii, a dream vacation

Hawaii is an island of beauty, peace and where dreams come true. I understand exactly how Steve feels about it, because it's always been my dream place and that magic came true on my honeymoon there. Anita really needed that vacation her boss forced on her. Once she let her guard down and allowed herself to enjoy Steve's company, and to truly see the amazing places he showed her, their attraction took care of the rest. The plan crash was unfortunate, but it gave them tha

Greg lost was Steve's gain

Even with a short, Ms. Beverly Jenkins leads you wanting more and with little nuggets of appreciation. I definitely want to go to Hawaii. It was a perfect backdrop to Steve and Anita's story.

What started out as just a trip to get everything together and recoup turned into something different. Fierce, dedicated, force to be wrecked with Anita meets Steve at a time in her life when are on the outside going well but then bad news happen.

Read this story and go on the journ

Love Ms Jenkins. This is a quick read. Romance with not a lot of backstory. JMO, Too many wated pages about sexual encounters, could have been used to enhance the story. Love the main characters. Hope she expounds on their story, and the supporting characters

Wonderful short story I read it in one sitting. Great characters I rooted for and a great location. Now I want to hop a plane and discover the island for myself.
I'll be reading more from Ms. Jenkins.

I loved this book. Short and sweet. I smiled from the time they got in the helicopter to the very end of the book. What a nice time I had while reading a romance and I can’t wipe the smile off my face. I loved that it was short and I hated to come to the end. An end that I loved btw.

Excellent story.

Two main characters seemed polar opposites at first. The story kept me intrigued. You never know what is going to happen when you go on vacation. Now I want to go to Hawaii based on the descriptions of the places in the book.
3.5/5 stars. This was very enjoyable, but very short. I would have loved to spend more time with these characters and to see their relationship develop over more pages, if not more time.

Nice romantic story

This story was a nice romantic story. The ending was unexpected though. The courting seemed short lived for just a few days together.
