I loved this delightful vacation romance!

As steamy and relaxing as a hot tub on the beach, this romance massages all the feel-good spots in your soul as Jessie and Byron find true love at his resort. Right from the start we know there's something different about the dynamics they bring to their union. The secret to love is finding the one person who fits you perfectly, and that's exactly what Jessie and Byron find in each other.

Jessie, having experienced the way powerful men overran her Silicon

This was quite an enjoyable read. The characters were both well developed, and had their own issues to face while looking for the one. It was refreshing to have to read that they both had to make compromises, and find out what really worked for them. The secondary characters were also important. The imagery of the island was well described in the story.

Loved this story. From the moment I start to read, I couldn't put it away.
Jessie and Byron, both are workaholics. They have passion for surfing.
Both knows what they want.
Great story.

Rebecca Hunter gives us a surprisingly lovely and in depth exploration of the nature of desire and the power dynamics in a relationship in Pure Attraction.

Jessie comes from a long line of women who have reshaped their life to suit men. She has no interest in doing so and is developing an app to help women become independent. With her sister in a happy relationship (& looking like she's going to repeat the family pattern) Jessie is working extra hard to stay in control of her own destiny. She de

Jessie and Byron’s romance is off-the-charts hot! The tropical, just-a-smidge-wild holiday atmosphere of the Hawaiian Islands and the depth and heart of two fantastic, made-for-each-other characters combine in Pure Attraction in the best possible way. Fun, flirty, and very, very hot, this book pushes the boundaries of the developing romantic relationship in ways I haven’t often seen in category romance

Jessie has learnt the hard way that for her to be successful in business so not only has to be as good as her men counterparts but better. She is driven to succeed so when her sister sends her on a vacation it is more an inconvenience rather than relaxing until she meets Byron.

Byron knows the demands that a successful career can have on life and love. He is drawn to Jessie from their first meeting and they fulfill each other’s needs both inside and outside the bedroom but when their vacations co

Pure Attraction Rebecca Hunter
❤️ “I know that you don’t need anything. That you can function perfectly well in the world without me. But are you absolutely sure you don’t want me?” ❤️
Read a FREE excerpt from Ch 1 of Pure Attraction: A Holiday Fling Romance, where it’s love at first sight for one of them, and pretty much the opposite for the other... 😂

A very cute story. It was totally different than what I thought in terms of roles (you'll see when you read it), but it was super hot and sexy. The chemistry between Jessie and Byron was white hot which led to so many steamy scenes. The banter the two of them had will make you smile (or whimper), and you anxiously read and hope that they will reach their HEA. Bryon is so sweet and so romantic that you will wish he belonged to you (or teach your man how to do it right)! This book was fun to read! ...more

4.5 stars This is a sweet tale, once I started reading I couldn’t put it down, the island is beautifully described I felt like I was there. Jessie and Byron just seem to fit together from the first moment they meet you just sit there hoping for the best for them. I love how when they finally came together they found what worked best for them, whatever that maybe!

I loved this sexy romance with great characters, romance and intrigue. She and her sister had a startup company in San Francisco and her sister sent her to an exclusive resort in Hawaii all expenses paid. She loved to surf and met a sexy surfer who.turned out to be the owner of the resort. They fell for each other but he worked in NYC and there were lots of complications to resolve. The ending was great.

Oh, this was sizzling and it in the middle of Hawaii! Byron and Jessie have amazing chemistry and their tryst goes from zero to 100 so fast I had whiplash. But that's because the writer wrote them so well, there was no denying their attraction. I couldn't put this down. ...more

I am voluntarily writing this review for this book I received through Booksprouts arc.

Jessie was trying to grow her business but her sister said she needed time off. Jessie goes to this resort in a little island just off Hawaii. Jessie meets Byron at the beach while surfing Byron tells her that he owned the resort. Nothing happened at the resort between them. They went back to their lives.

This was a very good book. It’s well written and the storyline was enjoyable. I liked Byron but Jessie grated on my nerves a few times. There’s a difference between liking control and having issues with control. Jessie seems more like someone who has a serious problem with control due to the way she viewed her relationship. She got it in her mind that all men especially those with money want to control women.

Byron and Jessie meet the first time when they’re both out surfing and Byron almost drop

If like me, you love a bit of heat in your romance AND love The Princess Bride, screech the brakes for this one!! It will have you hot, bothered and falling in love from the off. Can you imagine Westley in the present day? A Westley permitted to extend his subservient and doting behaviours to the bedroom department: As you wish...


If the idea makes you shiver with anticipation then you know this book is for you! Don't take my word for it, grab yourself a copy and expect a romance that is

I enjoyed this "Fantasy Island" scorching hot romance with one heck of a setting! Jessie and Byron definitely add some steaminess. This is a good story that is nicely written and developed story that is sweet and passionate. Jessie just wants to get through the vacation and get back to her plans that is until she meets Byron. These two couldn't be any more perfectly fitted if they tried. I really enjoyed their story from beginning to end. ...more

This was an incredibly sweet and hot romance that has the pages almost sizzling. Byron and Jessie make such a cute couple and I really liked the fact that she ended up having such an unplanned romance on what she expected to be an uneventful vacation

The resort that Jessie and Byron find themselves at sounds really neat. It also seems that it has helped each of them find not only something they want but need in a partner in one another. It was neat that each had to adjust to make a them work as well. More than just pure attraction.

The dynamic between this couple was very enjoyable as it played out. I liked the change from most books in this genre and found it fascinating to read. Their love was beautiful to behold as it grew and the story was entertaining.

Byron and Jessie met at the Kalani Resort where wishes come true. Rebecca Hunter surprised me with a twist in their relationship. A book well received. So glad I crossed literary paths with this author.
