My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved all the books in this series. I highly suggest reading all of them as they are that awesome. This book is no different, I loved reading it. This author writes with such detail that it makes you feel as if you are right there with the characters. I had no problems connecting with them as they made the story come alive. I loved seeing previous characters and what they are up to. In this book we get to see Martin’s story. You will have to read this story to see what happens when he goes on a motorbike road trip with his uncle Conor. It could just be an adventure they will not soon forget. Strong characters that make the story easy to read and entertaining. They made the story pop. I highly recommend this book and this author.

“Think about it. But think fast. This is the chance of a lifetime. Let’s go chase an adventure together.”

Growing up as the son of notorious rock star Martin Whelan, I’ve enjoyed both the perks and the ridicule that come with his fame. Now, I’ve got my own bit of Instagram-ready celebrity, including some harmless pranks and a starring role in the local Dublin club scene.

When, on the eve of my eighteenth birthday, my guitar god uncle Conor Quinn suggests I go on a motorbike road trip through Europe to shake up what he calls my “sheltered” existence, I tell him I’ll go if you go.

I never thought he’d take me up on it.

But, he’s got it stuck in his head that if I get some “real life” experience, I might just be able to jump-start my own musical ambitions.

Only thing is, he’s not exactly his usual cool and controlled self. See, in the middle of his surprise fortieth birthday party, he gave his band mates of twenty years some shocking news no one was ready for, least of all me.

With that revelation, it seems this road trip could be a disaster before we’ve even started.

Or … it could be the adventure of a lifetime.

Hula Girl by Lara Ward Cosio was sweet and romantic read. I would give this book a five out of five stars. I loved Ava, she was brilliant and hilarious to read! I loved the twists and turns throughout the story. I felt myself in Ava’s shoes and really felt like I experienced her journey too. I did enjoy getting Ford’s point of view too! He was a great read.

Hula Girl by Laura Ward Cosio is a wonderful stand-alone novel. The authors writing was flawless. She beautifully created a story with a great punch line, excellent character descriptions and many heart touching moments. Ava is a lawyer and has been busting her hinny off for the last 6 years to get herself where she is. Her boss forces her hand at taking a vacation in Hawaii. While on her vacation, taking a trip to the store, she is forced down a side road to avoid smashing a wayward chicken in the middle of the road. With no turn around point, she follows the road to the end, where it leads her to Ford. What ensues is just a pure blissful, steamy, vacation fling. After Ava’s vacation is over and she returns home, she buries herself in her work once again… only to run into her surfer boy in her hometown at a prestigious law firm event. Feelings are shared and explored, hurt and hidden. The chemistry between these two is way more than what a small vacation fling allows… but they live in two different states so how will they ever make it work? This book was excellent and I am glad I stumbled upon it. I laughed a lot, teared up in a few places, and felt my heart swoon at all the charm. You’ll definitely want to add this to your reading list.

Ava is a hard-working lawyer forced to take a vacation when one of the partners in the law firm she works at determines that she needs a break away from the office to clear her head after a recent incident during a deposition. To most people, a week on the island of Maui would be exciting and relaxing. After 3 days of trying to relax, unplug, and enjoy the beautiful island, Ava finds herself ready to get back to work. What starts out as a trek to find a laptop so she can check her emails sets into motion a series of events that will change Ava’s world forever.

Ford enjoys his morning surfing, teaching music to children on the island, and sipping on some nice tequila in the evenings. Finding Ava on the side of the road as she searches for cell service so she can navigate herself to the nearest electronics store is not usually part of his day. After some harmless flirting, Ava and Ford embark on a vacation romance that is super hot. Agreeing not to talk about their real lives, Hula Girl and Surfer Boy enjoy each other’s company in the bedroom and on the town until Ava must return back to Los Angeles. However, what happens in Hawaii doesn’t necessarily stay in Hawaii.

What happens when they see each other again and their real lives are more intertwined than ever? Ford is required to return to Los Angeles to wrap up business with his father and crosses paths with Ava. This chance meeting leads to a story of lies, love, and heartbreak that I found myself fully immersed in. Now Ford is the one on the timeline as he tries to prove to Ava that what they had in Hawaii is real while Ava is set on believing she can’t have love and the career she has worked so hard for. I found myself rooting for them along the way, hoping they would find their happy ending. This story was a wonderful reminder that sometimes the biggest obstacles to happiness is our own mind. A great read by an author that is new-to-me but one I will definitely be checking out in the future.

This story has all the feels! Right away I knew this was going to be a good one. Meeting the characters and getting their back story is done well. I feel like I know these two and only get to know them better as the story moves along. The attraction…yup I could feel that. The worry and concern…yup I could feel that. What about the heartbreak….yup that was the worst feeling. The love….yes that was the best!

I enjoyed each of these characters and the story took me for a ride. Just when I thought it was done. Nope it wasn’t. Her BIG gesture was wonderful! All of his weren’t too bad either. I felt myself smiling while reading about his Hula Girl and her Surfer Boy.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a great book! Ava Ruiz is a perfectionist. She is an attorney who regularly works 16 hour days 6 days a week. She has worked hard to get where she is and constantly has to prove herself in a world where women are generally at a disadvantage. She makes one little mistake at work and is forced into a (much needed but not wanted) vacation. She is in Maui going stir crazy wanting to check on things at work and decides to drive into town to pick up a laptop. On the way a crazy stray chicken runs her off the road. That’s when she meets the hot as hell beach bum Ford. Ava forgets all about work and decides to take Ford up on his invitation to meet up later that day. And so the vacation fling begins!

What happens in Maui stays in Maui…until it doesn’t! While you will fall in love with Ava and Ford while they are in Maui, just wait until you get to the twists and turns that have them face to face again in the real world! This is an emotionally charged, super fun, super hot read that will make you jealous as can be! I definitely found a new book boyfriend in Ford! I recommend this 5-star read! It’s one you’ll want to read over and over again!
