Perhaps I should have checked more reviews. WAY TOO MUCH EXPLICIT SEX for me. Read much of the story, but finished fast because I skipped over the sex scenes. The story was good, could have left out most of the bedroom scenes and developed the characters even more though. I won't be reading again.

Had I been given the option, this book would have gotten NO stars. I cannot believe I wasted any time on it and thank goodness, I didn't waste any money on it. What a mess! Very poorly written and edited. Pretty much hard porn and not the least bit interesting. Characters were poorly drawn and completely shallow. This reader didn't really care what happened to any of them. I am not sure this author ever had a writing class. Don't waste your time!

What a disappointment. I gave it one star because the review process won't let me submit without at least one star. I chose this book because of the write up on the purchase page. It looked like a love story. What it actually is is pretty close to porn. I don't mind erotic love scenes but what this writer came up with is beyond crude. Don't waste your time or money on this book. I won't be finishing it.

The best thing about this story it is set in Hawaii, otherwise it is a complete waste of time to read. It is poorly written and the language would be better in a very low end men's magazine. If there was a rating less then one star, this book would have gotten that rating. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

Very disappointed in this book. I was excited to start reading it but the sexual situations in this book just ruined it. It was almost like a young child wrote the sexual situations. Save your reading for a good book as the sex in this book negated the story line. It had potential.

I had a hard time connecting with this story, I felt it lacked character development and the dialogue didn't feel natural to me. There were some interesting plots brought up, but almost too many. I think if the author would have focused on only one or two of them I would have enjoyed the story more.

I felt Sydney's whole friendship with Henry was messed up, I felt like she should have been in love with him rather than Coen because it was Henry's feelings that she protected the whole time. It would have been a more believable relationship in my opinion. Her and Coen got together much too quickly for my liking, and it was all too easy. Henry's love for her was too obvious for such a smart girl like her not to notice and he almost came across as a stalker. I feel like this plot was too drawn out and I think it took away from connecting with Sydney and Coen's relationship.

Coen was an o.k. hero, protective and caring, everything the leading man should be. My problem with this story lies with Sydney's character. I felt she had too many personality changes throughout this book and her selflessness drove me nuts. I think the way the characters were wrote they would have been better off being high school students rather than in college, they came off too juvenile for me.

Overall, it was just an okay read for me but if you want a quick, sweet read then I say give it a shot.

Unnecessarily graphic description of someone's fantasy sex life. No real story; just what appears to be a crush on someone that played out in the author's mind. Trashy.

The characters were interesting. The story line was good. The profanity wasn't necessary and took away from the story. The f-bomb was so prevalent that I got distracted trying to read around it. This is book number one in the series. The story continues in the next book.
