Publisher's Summary

When a little rest and relaxation turns into something more...

Julia Maguire can't wait to spend two weeks in Hawaii with her best friends. She's been dreaming about this trip for years and all she wants is to lay on a sandy beach with an icy cocktail in her hand. But those vacation goals change the moment she meets Reed Baxter.

Reed is a busy doctor with family demands. She's in Hawaii to let go, not find love, and she's not interested in any commitment. Adding a little heat to the vacation seems like a good idea as long as there aren't expectations for anything more.

You will love it.

Great story. Hot, butch, doctor, mom and sexy woman with intimacy issues meet on vacation.
The kids were adorable. The sex steamy. Abby Craden is just amazing. Always gets it right, even the kids. Couldn't stop listening.

Loved this book

Already listening to the next one. I chose this book because of Abby Craden, she could narrate the phone book and it will be amazing, well it was a good choice, this is a great vacation book. The only thing is the voice she chose for Kate, it is too childish and as she is the main character of the second book ...

Characters better than plot

Wish the drama weren't so contrived cuz I really enjoyed the characters. The misunderstandings weren't very believable. Still a worthwhile listen.

Great plot and narration

I enjoy all novels involving busy professional women who are trying to fit in romance but uncertain about what level of commitment they can give the object of their affection. This book does that storyline extremely well.

Don't miss out on this!!

Absolutely loveable characters. Narration is top notch. I loved this all the way through. I didn't want to put it down once it started!! As with all great stories, they always seem to end too soon. Very well done on all fronts.

This book is a real winner!

I admit, that while I truly value the work that Ms. Craden does narrating our leafic audiobooks, sometimes I get narrator fatigue. This book is so good though, that I barely remembered it was her narrating. This book as several tropes, but all realistically written. I never felt like the things that got in the way were manufactured for dramatic impact. I really liked the way certain issues were handled regarding sex and skill levels. This is an audiobook I will happily reread many times.

Not interested

I just wish that books that are lgbtq? Would be clearly labeled. I don’t find it particularly offensive but definitely not interested.

Will definitely listen again!

Tons of chemistry, fun dialogue, and characters you’ll love! I read the first book in the series, not the second, and followed this book without any problems.

A super read

This is a lovely, endearing read with a touching story.
The characters are so endearing, especially Carly and Brin with lots of laugh out loud moments.
A story which gave me all the feels.
The narration is superb, great kids voices!!
Absolutely love it!

a really sweet story without the mush!

i really enjoyed thus book- a nice easy going story. i loved how relaxed gay parenting was introduced and to the twins that it was natural to have two moms. would love a follow up book as to how their lives unfold when the twins get older ....

captivated from the start

couldn't put this down, particularly enjoyed the narrations, the soft spoken Carly, the husky Reed tones, the nervousness in Julia's voice.

Definitely worth a listen/read.

Lesbian Romance.
I really enjoyed the hoilday side of this story but wasn't to please with the ending. It all seemed to be about sex not that that is a bad thing but I had trouble believing how easy ... let ... off the hook.

No body does it better then Abby Craden
Amazing performance.

All round good book. 8/10

S&M mash up with lesbian blended families and sick kids...

Sounds weird? It is!
Did the author have 2 books with a looming deadline? There’s no such thing as an effortless segue from dildos to dialysis and spoiler alert: the author didn’t manage it.

To be fair if the author pursued either storyline separately they should have worked, but this mash up was a total vibe killer and at times deeply disturbing... and not in a good way!

My lover and I now have a life long phobia about trolls 😉
