Adorable! I didn’t read the previous books in the series, but it wasn’t really necessary. I could follow the story in this book alone. Such a cute romance novel. The writing was awesome and I really lost myself in this book. Read this book if you love a good romance story.

Try Right (Aloha Series book 3) by Jill Brashear – Review by Krista Vaughan

Hawaii is my place! The first time I stepped onto the ground on Oahu I knew I had found my home! The pandemic has kept me away, but this book took me back again! Claudia is a beautiful, romantic leading lady who is looking for her leading man. She hopes to find him when she returns to Hawaii. Henry is a rugged, deep-feeling stuntman on her set that has NO idea that she’s a big deal. They meet by chance before finding out they work together. Sparks fly! The electricity between these two is almost visible! Such an important story of love and trust in Paradise.

Try Right by Jill Brashear is the third book in the Aloha Series, but can be read as a stand alone!

Claudia is scraping the barrel looking for a job when Hawaii comes along. Perfect! She will be in the perfect area to hunt down her first love. One of her stuntmen, Henry, is almost instantly attracted to her, so he agrees to help her on her search. It’s crazy to see the things we will do to impress someone. Will Claudia be able to find her first love? Will he be everything she dreamed it would be, or will she be disappointed to find he isn’t who she remembers him to be?

Try Right (Aloha Series Book 3) by Jill Brashear is the third installment in the Aloha series but is a stand-alone read. If you are a reader who could get lost in a fun, beachy, retro setting, this book is for you. The Hawaiian descriptions pull you out of your chair and into paradise in 1968. Claudia is an actress who lands a small role on a Hawaiian based TV show, and jumps at the chance in order to save her career. Along with finding gainful employment, she is also looking for her long lost first love. When she meets Henry, a stuntman, their paths intertwine and throw them for a loop. These characters are very relatable and it is quite easy to be swept up in the tide along with them. If you happen to find yourself in a “reading rut”, not knowing which book to pick up next, I highly suggest this one. With the lush descriptions and lovable characters, it is a breath of fresh air. It’s a vacation in a book! 5 stars!

This was such a good book that I read it in one sitting. Loved the relationship between Henry and Claudia and that they just engrossed you in their story! This book was filled with adventure, romance, some secrets and perhaps finding something you weren’t originally looking for. This was my first read by Jill Brashear and will definitely read her books again in the future! This can definitely be read as a standalone book; I was able to follow everything without reading the first two of this series. I do wish the characters were a little more relatable with their careers, but their wishes and dreams can be applicable for anyone. Would 100% recommend!

Claudia thought she got the life and career she has been dreaming about for years now but then a scandal places her on Hollywood’s blacklist, her options are limited. When a small role is offered to her on a not so well known show, she has to take it. Lucky for her though, it’s filmed in Hawaii and she can use this opportunity to rebuild her career, find herself again, and maybe even find the love of her life she hasn’t been able to stop thinking about since her trip to Hawaii right after high school.

I really enjoyed a good portion of this book and the setting of Hawaii in the 1960s was so much fun. Henry was probably my favorite character in the book but he still let me down at times though he made up for it in the end. My biggest issue and what really prevented me from giving this 4 stars but the misogyny in the book. Yes I 100% understand it provided the conflict for the book and I did enjoy getting the male perspective in this a lot but it pulled me out of the story so quickly with some of the comments from the male characters. I appreciated though that the author really tried to balance it out with things like having the Feminine Mystique laying around in Claudia’s dressing room or the comments around her struggling to deal with men using her to get ahead and how the same action can positively impact a man’s career while harming a woman’s. Overall I think this was a really fun book, especially for summer, and I could get behind the romance. Would definitely consider giving the other books in the series a try (which i believe are all stand alones but all located in Hawaii?).

Everyone loves an underdog. I enjoyed that Jill did not stick to the script. Try Right is fun, witty, breezy, whimsical, romantic, and downright compelling. I was rooting more so for the ‘underdog’ as opposed to the ‘lost love’. The characters are relatable; the fear of Henry’s perceived inadequacies resonated with me and made his and Claudia’s relationship more touching and special. I will always be a fan of the girl/boy next door finally being enough and getting their deserved happy ending.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved the characters in this novel. You get very attached to them and feel their passion and love in the pages. When they go angry I could feel it and hear myself thinking “Chill out buddy”, the passion ignited on every page. Claudia was trying to hard to force something that shouldnt have been that she almost missed out on what she actually needed.
This story is a great example of not always getting what you think you want but there being a greater universe out there pointing you in the direction of something you need in your life.
This was a big life lesson book for me, teaching you to see whats in front of you and not always thinking things could be better if only…
Claudia and Champ are so perfect, they are opposites attract throughout the whole story but in the end what makes them who they are is very similar and so endearing.
This book taught me a few things from “back in the day” what they did in certain situations that is so different from us now that we kind of forget it ever used to be like that. As well as some history/ knowledge about Hawaii I did not have.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants a happily ever after , predictable ending, amazing love story novel.

Try Right (Aloha Series Book 3) by Jill Brashear was a really good read! I enjoyed this period piece set in the ’60s. I felt like i was right there in that time period with Claudia and Henry. I was instantly grabbed by this novel as soon as I opened it, from from first page. I also felt like I was right there in Hawaii and I absolutely loved it. I loved these characters and this plot line. I really want to go back and read the first two books that were in this series now. I’m so glad I grabbed this book to read!

Try Right is book three in the Aloha series by Jill Brashear. This racy little story is set in the late sixties, in Hawaii, and the two main characters are Claudia and Henry. I have not read book one or two, and while these are stand alone stories, I think I would have benefited from reading the first and second books before reading Try Right. Nevertheless, the story was enjoyable, with energetic characters who were witty, passionate and magnetic. Claudia was an actress and Henry a stuntman. Used to the finest of Hollywood, Claudia is given a career lifeline in Hawaii, where her first love is from. There were shenanigans galore and the laughs were frequent. A flashy, fun and crafty little romance, with a little sass and lots of heart. 4 stars
