12 Hours in Paradise by Kathryn Berla is a young adult romance. This is my first time reading this author and it was a pleasant surprise. This is the story of Dorothy Patmont and Arash Atkinson. Both are in Hawaii and bump into one another thanks to Chester, Dorothy’s brother. It is Dorothy’s last day in Hawaii and Arash is there for a school trip. Her and Arash decide to sneak out of their rooms and meet up to talk and have a romantic adventure.
This is a sweet story of two good teens. They both understand that by sneaking out they are risking getting in trouble. The longer the evening goes the greater the risk of being caught. The two decide to use an app that promises love if they answer thirty-six questions together. The challenge will they finish the questions before getting caught.
The two of them are cute, sweet, and young. The story reminds us you never know when you will meet your love. Also, that one should be open minded. Arash was not the first boy she spotted, but he was the friend. We might not see someone as being perfect for us at the beginning but once the layers are stripped down and we get to know the real person everything can change.
I would recommend this to anyone who needs an uplifting story. I enjoyed the story and longed to find out if the two will finish the questions or will be caught out.
