I liked this series. I know I have read only two books so far but both are hits with me.
I like the community of characters. I want to see more of them. They care about each other. Some they welcome and some it takes years to feel it.
Brittany Forrest grew up on Puffin Island. She was raised by her grandmother, but others on the island taught her things too. At eighteen she married bad boy Zachary Flynn against everyone's advise. Ten days later he left her.
Now Dr. Brittany Forrest is going home from Greece where on a dig she broke her wrist bad and a friend arranged a private plane ride home to Puffin Island. The last plane she goes to get on the pilot is her ex-husband that she has not seen for 10 years.
Zachary Flynn now owns his own plane. He decided to come back to Puffin Island. Zach was abused by his parents, not treated great in foster care. He did find people who made a difference at a camp he was sent to on Puffin Island. he was taught to fly.
Now both are back and everyone is watching them. Brittany is offered lots of pity and sympathy. Which she hates. The attraction is there still.
I liked getting slowly to know Zachary. He still hides a lot. but I like him.
There is plenty of drama. Too many details in love scene for me. I know I want to see what happens next on Puffin Island.
I was given this ebook to read by NetGalley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give a honest review.
Zach first came to Puffin Island as a charity case to spend a few weeks at summer camp with more privileged children. To say he didn't endear himself to the staff and other counselors is putting it mildly. Because Zach had never been shown love, he had no idea how to return it. When Brittany asked Zach to marry her, he did so, but immediately regretted it and 10 days later abandoned her.
Brittany has returned to Puffin Island with a broken wrist and that is a metaphor for all that is broken in her life. She doesn't know what to do next with her job. When she sees Zach again after all these years she realizes her heart has never healed and doesn't know what to do. The first thing she must do, of course, is find out why Zach left. And the first thing Zach must do is tell her. Naturally, their communication on this topic is not good. It's painful and it's too difficult to dig into an open wound.
I love this series and this book in particular. Well worth a winter read of warm days and hot love.
Some Kind of Wonderful stole my heart, my breath and, deliciously, my sleep. I found myself racing through this story, desperate to devour every word that the author provided me with, as well as every gorgeous description, pulse-raising scene and tender moment. Puffin Island was, as it appeared to me in the first novel First Time in Forever, a stunning place to set this story. It quickly began to feel like home to me, and Sarah brought it to life beautifully, with the islanders, the stores and the back-stories of the characters who played secondary roles to Brittany and Zach who took centre-stage in the unravelling of this story.
As I mentioned above, Sarah Morgan is always at the top of her game when it comes to bringing her characters to life for the reader, and in Some Kind of Wonderful, this skill truly shone. Zachary Flynn was, as I'd hoped, the ultimate bad-boy, and although this completely worked in my favour, it hadn't worked in Brittany Forrest's. Sarah revealed Brittany and Zach's past to me in the most touching of ways, it quickly became evident that Zach wasn't just a bad-boy because it attracted the ladies (although this had certainly worked in his favour in the past). No, this bad-boy attitude had stemmed from the dark years he'd spent in foster homes, and earlier years alongside his brutal, nasty father. As I learnt more about Zach, and as Sarah painted this picture of what he'd been through during his lifetime, my heart, which had originally been thumping with joy at realising I had a bad-boy hero on my hands, slowed right down and suddenly, I didn't believe in his façade after all. In fact, my heart began to ache for this beautiful man who just couldn't seem to feel or love, but, it turned out, desperately wanted to, despite not admitting it to himself. I really took to Zach, not just as a potential book-boyfriend, but because I could see this person locked away inside the bad-boy demeanour and I was desperate for that person to come out. There wasn't a doubt in my mind, throughout reading, that a softer, more gentle side to Zach did exist. I fell for Zachary Flynn hook, line and sinker and, as the novel progressed, it turned out Brittany Forrest had done exactly the same thing as a teenager on Puffin Island.
It was difficult for me to not become sympathetic towards Brittany Forrest, especially since she's a wrist down after an accident during an archaeological dig. So when she returns to Puffin Island, free of plans for the time being but faced with the unavoidable presence of Zachary Flynn, I was bouncing on the spot, eager to see those sparks that would inevitably zip between them, and my God did they zip! Those sparks flung themselves to and fro between Brittany and Zachary and it made for one hell of a deliciously intense read that had my own pulse racing, never mind Brittany's! Once I became aware of the history between the two of them, it made complete sense that Brittany would try to stay as far away from Zachary Flynn as possible. But unfortunately for Brittany, (fortunately for me!) in a place like Puffin Island, it's near impossible to not cross paths at some point. Oh, the chemistry, the tension, the history between them! It spoke volumes for the here and now, and I was desperate, desperate I tell you, for something to happen between them, because if it wasn't then I was going to explode from the sizzle! Brittany appealed to me because she was such a loving, kind-hearted woman, endlessly loyal and she had the most fantastic friends surrounding her on Puffin Island, it was hard to not feel just a little bit jealous of her circumstances, Zach included. I loved the moments where, as the novel progressed, Brittany would turn to Skylar and Emily (who we meet in First Time in Forever) to discuss things and figure out what she'd do next. These moments between the friends allowed me to take a step away from the relationship between Brittany and Zach, meaning that when Sarah returned my attention to them, it felt more exciting and tense than ever!
In true Sarah Morgan style, Some Kind of Wonderful was just stunning. It had everything that I'd hoped for and more. The physical attraction, emotional withholding, raw chemistry, great friends and a setting to die for, the second novel in the Puffin Island series is definitely my favourite so far. Zach was a complete hunk of a man, Brittany was a strong, independent woman, and the story of their love had my heart doing somersaults in my chest. It's certainly true what they say. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." But in this case, a witty heroine who makes a few rules for herself hides this brilliantly well.
Becca's Books is rating Some Kind of Wonderful by Sarah Morgan with FIVE SCRUMPTIOUS CUPCAKES! I am on tenterhooks as I wait for the last novel in the Puffin Island trilogy, which is where we'll be reunited with Skylar. After reading a teaser once I'd finished Some Kind of Wonderful, I just know that we're in for one gorgeous finale! Sarah Morgan, I really cannot applaud you enough. I was wrapped up in Zach and Brittany's story completely, the romance was breathtaking and the characters were a complete and utter joy. Roll on October!
