Short & sweet novella focusing on Leilani and Honi from Getting Lei'd by the same author. They both work at the Hawaiian resort where all the employees are part owners. Leilani, Honi & Kai have been best friends since childhood. Honi has always had special feeling for Leilani, but has never acted on them. Leilani ends up pregnant after a relationship with a guest who took her virginity then left without a second glance. (This was one aspect of the book that could have been explained better, why was he there for so many weeks? Working people just don’t get that much vacation.) The story focuses on Leilani dealing with how to bring up a child on her own and Honi convinces her to allow him to raise the baby with her. It’s a romance novel – so you can imagine how it ends.
It’s an enjoyable quick read, but it lacked some of the humor and charm of Getting Lei'd which I really enjoyed. It’s worth reading just for the lush descriptions of the resort and the island alone.
Lani gets pregnant by a tourist that she thought that she was in love with. He returned to the main island and wouldn't have anything to do with her. She turned to friends Honi and Kai for friendship. Honi promises to help her with the baby. She finds that she is developing feelings for him. This is must read to learn if they do fall in love with each other . I am voluntarily reviewing this book.
Leilani, Honi & Kai have been best friends since they were young, now they work/run at a resort together. Leilani is in a predicament, a little while back a main lander came to the resort. After spending time with Tom she thought she was in love and gave her body to him. After a few weeks he turned cold with the announcement of his leaving. Now she is pregnant and alone as Tom said he would pay for an abortion. She has to tell her two best friends before her protruding belly gives her away. She tells Honi first, he seems a little disappointed at first, then he offers to help her raise the baby. But she can't do that to him, she doesn't want to ruin his chances at a happy ever after because of her and her baby. When she told Kai, he seemed more concerned about Honi and how he felt about the news. When she treks the boys that she wants to take Honi up on his offer, Honi seems happy. Leilani starts to realize that she has feelings for Honi and keeps picturing them as a happy little family. She goes to talk to him one day and asks if he wants to spend time with her. She is hurt when he says he can't then she is jealous and crushed when she learns it's because one of the girls at the resort are cooking for him. She decided she needs to tell him how she really feels. But will it be too late? I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I read a lot of books and for a book to stand out, and be something I think about long after I read it, it has to be something special. I voted for the Kindle Scout book Getting Lei'd and was so happy when it won. It was truly a book that I not only loved reading, but one that I continued to think about for months after reading it.
Aloha, Baby was just as good as Getting Lei'd. I sat down to read the book and didn't look up until I was finished. It was really that good. The characters in this series are so wonderful. You have the hunky Kai, the sweet Honi, and the adorable Lani - who we get to learn much more about in this prequel.
The books can all be read as stand alone books, but once you read one, you'll want to read them all as quickly as you can. The author does such an amazing job at crafting a series that whisks you away to the balmy, relaxing shores of Hawaii. With descriptions of pineapple scented breezes and relaxing ocean waves, you'll be fully immersed in the Hawaiian setting.
If you love contemporary romance and romantic comedies, you're going to love this series.
This my first book by this amazing author and it won't be my last, what can I say, it's beautifully written and it took my breath. I couldn't wait to see what happen and how it turn out. I was so happy how she ended this book. I won't give any spoiler, but I will say this read it and find out for yourself, and you won't be disappointed. Love it. I received this ARC for an honest review.
This was a quick, about 2 hour read. I had enjoyed Taking Chances from this author and wanted to try another. Unfortunately in this book there seemed to be very little character development. I wasn't connected to any of them at all. I was excited when the male characters in the book were HP fans but it wasn't really a huge part other than getting Leilani into them. The romance between Leilani and Honi didnt' seem real. There wasn't a build up and even though they were supposed to be best friends I didn't get a connection feeling at all. I will read the next one because the secondary characters seemed funny - Bad Grandma "Baggy" and Roxy.
