It’s no secret that I love Karina Halle’s writing, and while I do love some of her more heartbreaking romance (The Debt/The Play, I’m looking at you two) this book was perfectly balanced between lighthearted fun and a deeper more serious tone. There is a little bit of a Love, In English vibe here, and I think that’s mostly the age gap between these characters, and the fact that they know they will be judged for this relationship. Also, there is no setting that I have imagined more vividly. Kauai sounds beautiful, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that since I follow the author on Instagram, I got to see all of the beautiful pictures. Between those pictures and the book, I am seriously considering trying to plan my own vacation there, although my daughter would be only 3 so we will see! Suffice it to say this book reads gorgeously, not only are the characters real and evoke a real emotional response but Karina Halle paints a beautiful picture of this island and the people who live here. I can’t help but give it 5 out of 5 stars, and I know this book is getting added to the “favorites-to-re-read” list.

Like all Karina Halle books Heat Wave is written in a way that makes you feel like you’re right there with the characters, in other words I went on a trip to Hawaii for $5, SCORE!
I loved everything about this book, the scenery, the characters, the relationships, the story, the sex. Yes, the sex was fantabulous. Logan is such an alpha and lord knows I love me some alpha. I loved Logan, such an amazing character and his story broke my heart.
I liked Ronnie as well but she kinda pissed me off with her stupidity and all that jazz. Sure she’s lived in the shadows of her sister all her life and that’s gotta be hard and I get why she acted the way she did but at points I felt like Logan deserved better. I got over that because it’s obvious that they’re made for each other.
Ronnie’s parents? Ugh don’t even get me started, I felt like murdering someone. Like for real.
I enjoyed this book till the very end and I really would love to know what happens in the future. Also Kate’s story. Yes, I need that.
I enjoyed this book a lot. Deeply romantic and great writing. But it missed a 5-star for me because I just don't think hooking up with your ex-BIL is such a morally reprehensible, shocking thing. A tad eyebrow-raising, perhaps, but really, there are a lot worse things in this world. And if the H and h don't have a problem with it (Veronica especially), then let's just move on and let them live their lives. But every person they told was shocked. Not one said, "Pffft, whatever." Really? The people in my world would.
My other problem was, what was up with Juliet? She is described as some mythical, beautiful, charming, Svengali-like creature, although it was implied she actually wasn't those things (I think), and at the end of the day nobody really knew or understood her. I don't know what we are supposed to think about this or what it means about her character (was she happy? What was her relationship with her husband really like? Why didn't she connect with her sister?), and I found it very unsatisfying.
What I really did like was Veronica's explanation of why she left Hawaii, rather than giving the H a chance to make a choice - she knew he'd choose her, and she already felt guilt over their relationship, she knew she couldn't handle the guilt of him losing the hotel on top of it. I get that. Without that really good piece of writing explaining this choice, I would have thought it was ridiculous. Instead it became a choice that, while I felt was misguided and off-base, I can see why it was made.
