This book was nothing like I expected it to be. I loved the way the author took a different slant on a romance book, it wasn't all about sex and boy meets girl and they jump into bed. It was a look into people's lives and how their life changes after a turn of fate, it's how they can change their lifestyle and their outlook on life when they really have to.
I love the way the author goes into the background of them and built up a picture of them and who they were, then you jump forward a few years and see how far they have come and what they have made of their lives, how they look at what they want from a relationship. It's a beautiful romance and down to earth, like what happens in real life.I loved it the way friends and family give them a push if they need it or not whether they think they need someone special in their life or they think they can cope well enough on their own. Through their friends intervention they can find true love if only they'd let themselves look. I'd recommend it to anyone that likes a love story with a real life feel to it, I had a range of emotions through it and could see how they felt at every turn off the page, a great book.
Cole Hayes was once on the reality show Laguna Beach and is now a single father to Rose, after his ex-wife couldn't handle motherhood and dealing with Rose's illness. Cole's brother Parker decides to take matters into his own hands and sends in Cole's information to Master Draikoh San.
When Cole and Melanie meet they hit it off and realize how similar they are. They bond but realize that they only have one night together before distance separates them. Yet when something happens that threatens to destroy their night together will they realize that they are meant to be or will they realize that they are better off as friends?
This was a great story on mending broken hearts in a way that is based on similarities and respect. Cole and Melanie both realize that the other is special and not in a way that was judged on preconceived notions due to who their parents were or being on TV.
Melanie was a wonderful character who was burned in love but it also showed her how much more she was worth. Her love of kids was so evident and her loyalty would be incredible! Cole was great and understandably so hesitant to get involved with anyone as a single father and former "celebrity". Together they were able to form an immediate friendship and really learn about each other.
I'm super curious about Master Draikoh San and how he seems to know everything!! I can't wait to read more about him!
Laguna Beach: One Night in Laguna is a sweet, quick read. Although both Melanie and Cole were guarded personalities, having made mistakes and been hurt by their past, they had more in common than they thought. Both of them understood the false veneer or show business, and both of them had a common interest in children - Melanie as a teacher and Cole as a father. I enjoyed their interaction and the exploration of their new relationship. The unexpected concern regarding Cole's daughter allowed Melanie to reveal her true colours, settling Cole's doubts about her intentions.
The actions of Master Draikoh San the matchmaker, are downright scary, and his knowledge of the adventures of the night put a shiver up my spine!
A sweet love story with an HEA.
Of course, Cole and Melanie are made for each other. After agreeing to an arranged one-night-stand facilitated by a matchmaker with "extrasensory powers", they meet for their magical evening. It turns out way different than what they expected, and that's where the story takes off with twists and turns that finally help Cole and Melanie realize that it's time to open up their hearts to the right person who would not let them down.
I enjoyed this quick read.
I have read several of these Laguna Beach Kindle Worlds books, and this one is my favorite. I was able to be sucked into the book and really felt for both Melanie and Cole. They both had some rough times and avoided dating until their friends put them up to this one date. I really fell in love with Cole and Melanie as a couple because you could just tell that they instantly clicked. It definitely is an insta-love book, just like the rest is this kindle worlds series, but not any less heartwarming. I definitely recommend reading it.
Through well meaning friends and family members, both had profiles submitted to match maker extraordinaire Master Draikoh San. Agreeing to the one night date, they meet in California. Their attraction is instantaneous but things didn't quite turn out as expected. Can the pair break down their walls and trust again?
I loved this story, and Rose's honesty and matter of fact way about her was adorable. I definitely recommend!!
