  24. I didn t love it nor did I hate it Lauren is an anchorwoman who had tragedy happen and once things became too hot she fled to the Cayman Islands where her brother has a business and this is where she meets Noah a hot writer Noah also has a motive and once Lauren finds out their relationship changes This has drugs, money, murder and sex almost like a Hollywood movie Nothing bad ever happens in paradise, or does it


  25. The book started off ok Liked the characters, their issues, their relationships, etc Then with 20% of the book left the story takes an awkward turn that threw three new storylines into the mix and then the book just ended Ugh, would have liked it better if we just stuck with all the characters original issues, we didnt need drama.
