Review

"One of the most perfect romances I’ve ever read."
—Dear Author

"KA Mitchell writes very compelling characters that have realistic baggage and issues that must be overcome."
—Rainbow Reviews
 

Book Description

Dream job lost, trauma surgeon Jae Sun Kim takes a scuba vacation, but he didn’t plan on seasickness or a dive master who is sex-on-the-beach personified.

Shane has drifted from academia to a job as a divemaster in Belize. He has plans as soon as he figures a way to keep that hot, arrogant doctor from tossing his cookies over the side of the boat.

The close quarters on the ship generate more heat than expected expects, but a vacation fling is they want until an unexpected adventure leaves them too changed to go back to their old lives.

I ordered the sample chapter and found the men a bit too sniping and snarky to each other and later realized that I had accidentally bought the book. I decided what the hell, may as well read it, as it's all of $4. Jae Sun Kim is taking some time off his one track life/career and giving himself a week of scuba diving in Belize. Shane McCormack is the sexy Texan dive master. Mysteriously the two have to share a cabin and unsurprisingly, things get more involved from there... I initially found Jae Sun Kim and Shane McCormack too snippy and power playing, and they never really got into a groove that worked for me. The sex was good, great for them, pleasant enough to read, but the relationship dynamics never really convinced me. I found that Shane took all the risks and Jae Sun took all the power and Jae Sun definitely did not share nicely.

Mild Spoiler

Giving Shane one type of background and then making him so academically qualified didn't really fit either, and that whole part didn't convince me.

So I wasn't displeased to read it, and the words all flowed in the right order and I didn't skip any of it, and I finished it in one day. The medical lingo felt accurate and was presented confidently. But I had fundamental problems with both characters: Shane had huge inconsistencies and Kim was so controlling that I never warmed to him. So I never really bought into either of them.

That said, I did like it, I just don't know if it's going into my keeper pile (though does that term even apply anymore, to electronic books?) Okay, I don't know if it's going into my reread pile.

I quite enjoyed KA Mitchell's Bad in Baltimore series so I gave this a try even though I wasn't enamoured of the sample. I wish I'd listened to my instincts. This was a tedious novel with very little plot, unlikeable characters, absolutely zero connection between the leads, and irrational and unrealistic behaviour for the sake of story.

Kim is supposed to be the silent misanthropic type and I have absolutely nothing against that, but that is really all there is to him. He's just constantly being rude or arrogant or a total downer. Actually he reminds me the most of a sullen teenager who thinks its cool to hate interacting with people. He's supposed to not have great social skills which causes some conflict with Shane later in the book, but this is to the point that you wonder if he has some kind of diagnosable condition.

Shane is perfectly OK although were supposed to believe his family thinks he's a failure even though it turns out he is quite accomplished. And there is never any explanation given for why a flighty, never settle down in one place kind of guy suddenly decides to get really serious about a demanding career in the end.

The two characters never have a discussion of any depth. I have no earthly idea why they even like each other let alone claim to love one another at the end. I don't think I've ever seen worse chemistry jn a romance novel.

The conflict at the end is ABSURD. They behave like immature children, one throws a hissy fit, it's all over a simple misunderstanding (of course) and when that is cleared up one says he still can't be in the relationship. It just made no sense. I kept reading it just feeling so puzzled, like these were lines of dialogue from a generic angry scene with no connection to each other or the characters or the book.

Definitely skip this one.

No Souvenirs Jae Sun Kim arrives late for his scuba vacation's refresher class in Belize. Trauma surgeon, Kim has just lost the partnership career he sought. However, rescheduled accommodations and seasickness has Kim thinking this impulsive escape to diagram a new future is a terrible idea until he discovers that his roommate is the sexy dive master Shane McCormack. The close quarters on the ship and the mutual attraction, is the perfect setting for a vacation fling.

No Souvenirs is the story of Jae Sun Kim whom we first met in Collision Course. What started out as a vacation fling for Kim and Shane evolves into a romance after an unforeseen dramatic experience leaves them emotionally altered. When Kim returns home to Jacksonville, Florida, Shane follows him to explore the possibility of a relationship. The characters are well developed. Both men have a high degree of intelligence. Kim employs logic as well as arrogance when dealing with people, being inexperienced with relationships. His lack of skill in expressing his emotions is a source of annoyance for Shane. Easily bored and hiding behind a dumb cowboy personality, Shane avoids situations that will require dedication from him until he realizes that a life with Kim is what he wants. The secondary characters add another layer of interest to the overall plot. Interaction between Kim and Shane is sarcastic, humorous and incredibly erotic. The amazing K. A. Mitchell has produced another exciting saga that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Well I seem to have a knack for reading K.A. Mitchell out of sequence. This is book number 3 in the Florida series. This one had to grow on me, when it did, it took flight. When I finished it, I was in love with both characters.
Jay is a Korean trauma surgeon looking to move across the country to evade his parents and their attitude towards his being gay. Shane is a scuba instructor for a company that specializes in dives. When these to first meet, it's oil and water, but when their encounters become sexual, oil catches fire and water can't put it out. When the two are stranded during a dive, they begin to see their relationship as growing deeper. Shane is attacked by Portuguese man-o-war, nearly dying before Jay knows he can't live without him.
Jay is a surrounded by walls he has constructed to keep his soul safe. Shane can't stay in one place for long or as he states not good at the relationship thing. It's is so rewarding to see them fight, love, and live with each other. It's a win win situation for the reader. Some big twists come toward the end, that was more for characters than the reader.
I give this a wet suit full of stars.
