What could be more fun than spending a week in Hawaii right before the holidays?

I’ll tell you.

Inviting the grumpiest stranger I’ve never met to join me.

She is Tenley Shay, the voice behind TJ ON PAR, a podcast for Practical Adult Relationships, who spends her days touting her disapproval of love and the practicality of remaining a single-bell for life.

When I, as my Love Guru persona, publish an article about spending a week at a couple’s retreat at my favorite Hawaiian resort, she’s quick to pass on her cynicism. So, I’m calling her bluff and inviting her on an all-expense paid trip to the Kamana Wanalaya Resort for a little R&R before the holidays.

If I can’t get her to fall in love, I’ll donate to her podcast.

But once we finally meet and are coupled together for the week, I find myself attracted to her feisty antics and her twisted sense of humor. Now I think I might be in way over my head.

Can I really ask the world’s biggest relationship cynic to risk everything, forget about her thoughts on love and take a real chance, with me?

He’s a convicted felon out on parole for a crime he didn’t commit. She’s the girl who put her life on hold while he was away. Can the two pick up right where they left off? 

He never should’ve gone on that beer run. If he’d stayed at the party, kissing Robyn by the bonfire, his life would’ve turned out totally different. But actions have consequences, the slam of the judge’s gavel echoing the death knell of his freedom. 

Now he’s back in his hometown, starting his life over at his family’s Christmas tree farm and winery. 

Running into Robyn wasn’t part of the plan. 

She leaves him pining and reckless to see her again. But things permanently changed after that night so many years ago. Or so he thought. 

With Robyn, he feels understood, wanted, and strong—things he hasn’t felt in a long time. When she’s in his arms, he’s tempted to trust again. To love again. To fly free again.

But deep down, he’s petrified. 

Will the love they share be enough to overcome the past? Or will his second chance at happily ever after implode, confining him to a life sentencealone?

When I walked down the aisle at my best friend’s wedding, I had no idea my night would end with a kiss.

A sinfully-hot kiss with a stranger after a little too much to drink.

A kiss that ignited something in me I thought had long since died with the love of my life.

A kiss that started with one…single…touch.

A moment that left with the stranger, filling me with guilt and reminding me how empty I am.

Until…our paths merge again.

Though a passion ignites between us that neither of us have ever felt, my heart remains with my lost love. That kind of love doesn’t happen twice.

The more time I spend with Enzo, the more I begin to wonder if that last statement is true.

And the moment I let myself wonder, let myself feel hopeful, is the moment everything explodes.

An unbelievable reality is exposed that upends my life forever. There’s no undoing it, no changing it.

And I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to forget…

You’ll love this emotional love story filled with passion, grief, and learning to love again because everyone roots for a second chance at finding love. Grab your tissues and get ready for a raw, real, emotional love story that will suck you in, hit all your feels, and leave your heart smiling.

Get it now!

This is Book 2 in the Wounded Hearts Series. While it can be read as a standalone, your experience will be better if you read Someone Exactly Like Me first. I hope you enjoy this SLOW BURN, soul mates, broken / Mediterranean hero, contemporary romance story. Great summer beach read!

(This book contains steamy scenes, mention of a car accident, grief, loss of loved ones, mention of drug addiction, a parent leaving, and some explicit language. Suitable for 18+ only.)

Debbie Cromack is a contemporary romance author who writes romantic, emotionally raw love stories with a lot of heart and a hint of steam. Her characters are realistic, flawed, and people you’d want to get to know. She’s been called the master of the SLOW BURN.

After spending 25+ years in corporate America, being the CEO of an event decorating company, and then an online business coach, she tried her hand at writing romance novels, publishing her debut novel at the age of 50, and has been writing ever since.

Fun facts: 1) She lived in Taiwan for ten years, 2) Her undergraduate degree is in psychology/sociology/anthropology with a minor in corporate communications and her MBA is in marketing…NONE of which help her in her author career (LOL!), and 3) You’ll almost never hear her say the word, “hate” or the phrase, “It’s hard.”

When life has you down or feeling frantic, she challenges you to ask yourself, “Is this serving me?” And if the answer is, “No,” do your best to set it free and let it go.

She’s an Amazon international bestselling author and has been featured in Forbes.

The Personal Side of Debbie:

She lives on a farm and has a bunny named Nutmeg, who’s quite the little snuggler. She also has two Nigerian dwarf goats, Patches and Tiny Tim, and many chickens.

She does her best to eat healthy and organic however, she does have a wicked sweet-tooth for chocolate and tries to only indulge on special occasions. Her biggest indulgence…hot cocoa!!

Once a month, for as long as they’d been friends, Lisa, Mindy, Ruby, and Tina gathered for Rom Com Movie Club night. Facial masks, nail polish, and wine could settle the world around them as they dished on movies that made them want to love—even if the premise of happily ever after seemed far-fetched. 

Having been tossed around from home to home growing up, Lisa didn’t have much of an idea of what happily ever after was supposed to look like. Her friends had become her stable home, and their love was enough to carry her though day to day. But life had always thrown obstacles at her, she never considered it might throw a man her way, which would cause a rift with her best friend before her best friend’s wedding. 

When things went bad, it usually started a trend, and Ryan was caught in that loop when he decided to return home to live with his parents until some other opportunity came his way. He had no idea that opportunity was going to come right at him when he followed his brother into the girly chaos that was Rom Com Movie Club night, and he fell head over heels for Lisa, in a clay facial mask and wet toenails. 

Falling in love with her best friend’s soon to be brother-in-law wasn’t ideal timing, but when had timing ever been on Lisa’s side? Now with a man who loves her and a best friend who assumes Lisa’s out to ruin her wedding, Lisa must decide which happily ever after she wants. The one with the man and the fairy tale ending, or the love of a friend who has been there for her whenever she needed her.
