A chance meeting which leads to more. One plane ride, a vacation and hearts on the line, equals the perfect winter escape.

When Will and Lacey meet the chemistry is instant, which is exactly what you need when your flying partner is delayed. After getting to know each other they end on a high, but little do they know their story is only just beginning.

Im a fan of this author. The book can be read as a standalone, however, its part of a series which is available on KU. These are quick reads with

A sweet vacation love story that starts with a bubbling, fumbling Lacey Devlin spilling her bloody Mary down her blouse and ends on a hopeful happily ever after note with Will Mayes .
She's adorable girly girl, with pink hair and pink complexion. Babble non stop and radiates sunshine.
"Can I put you in my pocket and take you home for whenever I need a pick-me-up?"
He's the owner of a Marina and boat charter in St. Thomas and it's a perfect setting for a dream fling.

Passions and Peonies by Kristina Beck is the second book in the Four Season Series. It's a sweet and heartwarming insta-love romance that made me smile and swoon hard.

Lacey Devlin couldn't wait to get out of New York City and start her spring vacation in St. Thomas with her stepsister, Skylar. They're supposed to fly together, but Sky's flight was delayed. And Lacey ends up sitting next to a very handsome man on the plane.

Will Mayes is fortunate enough to get a last-minute seat on a

This was a really sweet love at first sight, soul mate romance. Lacey is going on vacation with her friend/step sister, Skylar. There is an issue and Will ends up getting Sky's seat. When these two meet you know it's going to be awesome. Their connection was instant and I felt it. This book is full of great characters, Lacey and Will are so sweet with each other and I would love to have friends like Sky and Josh. The romance that follows is sweet and steamy with low drama. Just two people ...more

Such a sweet holiday quirky romance novella with Lacey and Will who meet on a plane.
And as by fate meet again, however Lacey struggles with why he pretends he doesn't know her.
Once again another chance meeting at the holiday resort where Lacey and her sister Skyler are staying for one weeks holiday to escape the winter on a tropical paradise, turns into a adventure with plenty of heat and sexual chemistry that can't be denied.
This story was filled with so many laughs as Lacey is one accident

I absolutely LOVED this book! It had everything I love in a great story. Amazing characters, a fabulous story line, and of course it was full of some serious hot chemistry!
Lacey and Will were such fun characters. The way they are drawn to each other right from the start was so sweet and I was laughing out loud throughout the book.

Of course the time came when the vacation for Lacey had to be over and she would need to say goodbye to Will and head back to New York. My heart broke for what she was

I love this new series by Kristina Beck! These feel-good stories have the ups and downs of real life, interspersed with humour, poignant moments, and lots of romance.

Lacey is such a great character - bubbly and fun-loving, but vulnerable too beneath the surface. Her tendency to be clumsy adds some wonderful moments to the story! And who wouldn't fall in love with Will?! Sexy, serious, with eyes only for the girl he falls in love with...

With only one glorious week together before it's time to

I was swooning SO HARD over this book from the very beginning. Wow, what a read. Will and Lacey are probably the most swoonworthy couple I've read this year. Their meet-cute packed a punch, their unexpected meeting packed a punch...their whole relationship in this book packed a punch. I loved that I got to read up on some of my favorite characters from the first series in this book, while also falling in love with Will and Lacey. This book had just the right amount of angst for me to snap it up ...more

This review is not going to be long. I am not a huge fan of a review rehashing the entire plot and spoiling it for everyone.

This is the first book by Kristina Beck that I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked how the characters grew and interacted with each other in this book. I will purchase more of her books.

I received an ARC of this book to read for a fair review. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Kristina Becks new book carried me away from the snow and cold to the warm beaches of St. Thomas. Her vivid descriptions of the fragrant flowers, blue ocean and romantic sunsets, made me feel as if I was there or at least dreaming about it. Lacey was escaping the cold weather when she boarded the plane to begin her vacation, and little did she know that her life was about to change. The tropical island was the perfect setting for two people to fall in love. Lacey, who was seeking relaxation and ...more

Passions will be be burning in this springtime novella. Lacey had me laughing out loud to myself as she is not the most balanced person. It took me a bit more to warm up to Will personality. I feel he was harder to get to know as he carried a bit more on his shoulders , so to me it took a bit more for him to let loose & have fun. The vivid descriptions of the island will make you feel as you are on the island as well.

Passions and Peonies was a super fast little read, full of humor, sadness and romance. I laughed alot reading this book, my first by this author. I look forward to reading more of her work. This would be a great little beach read. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of this from the author, and this is my fair and honest review.

4.5 Ready for Spring Stars!

I am loving this Four Seasons Series ~ especially Lacey's story! I loved her quirkiness, the color of her hair and her loyalty to her family. I can see the things that happened to Lacey happening to me, making me more invested in the story! I enjoyed the chemistry between Lacey and Will.

Looking forward to see what FUN Summer brings....

This was a quick and easy fun read. Lacey is a fun loving, clumsy character that you just can't help but like. Will has the weight of the world on his shoulders. This book made me want to book a trip to the islands and find my own Will.

Even if Old Man Winter is refusing to leave your neck of the woods, this book will immerse you right into the sights, sounds and fragrance of spring. When her stepsister cant make their flight to warm, sunny, St. Thomas, Lacey Devlin finds herself tripping into the lap of the very yummy Will Mayers. Embarrassment quickly turns to infatuation, but Lacey figures she'll never see Will again. After they part ways, he surprises her by claiming a kiss before leaving the airport, and then again by ...more
