This is definitely my favorite in this series (so far at least!) I can definitely relate to a domineering mother who always thinks she knows what is best for me! I was so happy when Amanda finally broke free to find herself--she really did not want to be an actress-nor was she cut out to be.

I loved the way the story progressed--stranger helps girl--instant attraction--but he is engaged! Mother makes some phone calls (unbeknownst to Amanda)and she finally gets a job at a wine tasting vineyard. Turns out Phillip (the stranger) is the son of the owner and had been coerced into spying on the new hire. He also owns his own vineyard right next door to where Amanda is working.
(Conspiracy of mothers?).

But Phillip is still engaged and his fiance refuses to believe he broke up with her and causes all kinds of trouble!!!

I really think you will enjoy this one. It can be read as a stand alone with no problem.

New Release....

Phillip Kensington has been a lucky man. His wine business is booming, he’s engaged and about to marry a woman he thought he loved. But she has changed since he slipped the ring on her finger. When Amanda, a beautiful stranger needs his help, he jumps into action. In the process, she helps him realize his future must change.

Laguna Nights (Laguna Beach Book 1)

Madison Alcott was back in her hometown, caring for her sick mom and working long hours at the best resort in Laguna Beach. She never imagined she'd return to the place where she became famous on the hit reality TV show Laguna Nights, and the place where she was humiliated on national television. Fortunately, the past had stayed tucked away until her old high school boyfriend appeared in the lobby.

Josh Welsh was a superstar by age eighteen, the bad boy break-out star of Laguna Nights. Since then, his star had lost its shine and he barely was holding onto his Hollywood status. When he was asked to host a new reality travel show, he jumped at the chance. The only problem was the first episode was shooting in Laguna Beach. Of all the reasons Josh didn't want to return home, he hadn't even imagined the worst scenario: running into Madison "Holly" Alcott.

Josh's connection to Madison was still as strong as her anger at his betrayal. When the new reality series forces them together, they must face Laguna Nights past and present, and navigate a journey where nothing is as it seems.

***Laguna Nights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone read. And if you enjoy Laura and Paul's story, please consider reading the rest of the Laguna Beach series.

Today, she's living the happy life as a mom that she predicted on the show long ago. There's only one problem: the secret from her past that haunts her most nights, a secret that if revealed could ruin everything she shares with her husband, Hank, the man who saved her from the heartache.

Welcome back to Laguna Beach...

Laura Kinkaid’s glamorous Hollywood life is falling apart. After years of reality television stardom beginning in high school on Laguna Nights, her career and relationship with her long-term boyfriend Scott are fizzling out.

Laura decides to go home to Laguna Beach for the weekend to attend a baby shower for her high school friend. That decision – and a car accident – will lead her to a new future, if she’s ready to take a chance at love. 

Paul Dorn’s former life in New York City is far behind him and he’s working in a popular Laguna Beach surf shop when fate brings the most beautiful woman he’s ever met into his life. The attraction is instant and he has an overwhelming desire to protect her. While Paul’s retail sales career is a short-term job for market research purposes, his focus on Laura is long-term.

Will Laura allow a handsome stranger to help her create a future unlike her past, or will the bright lights of Hollywood pull her back to LA?

Once you're a star, can you trust other people’s intentions?

Scott Cassidy has lived a blessed life. Growing up in Laguna Beach with a loving family, he was discovered in high school when he appeared on the popular reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Now cast as a doctor on the number one soap opera, his star keeps rising. Finally free from his long-term girlfriend, Scott isn’t looking for love, but when a popular dating app matches him with Jamie Kane, he can’t deny the sparks. But is she really everything she seems?

Jamie Kane isn’t lucky in love or life. Her childhood was tumultuous with a single mom who moved to Hollywood for fame but ended up waiting tables in Malibu. Certainly not one of the spoiled kids she went to high school and college with, Jamie has worked hard to achieve her dreams of being an actress, even as she begins to realize it’s not her calling. Jamie believes Scott may be the answer to everything unless a past mistake makes him doubt their future together.

Is the price of fame the chance at true love?

You seem to find the best books to review. Sounds like a very enjoyable read!

Gladys Parker said...

I really think I would enjoy this series of books. Real books though not ebooks. My dream to come true would be my parents still here with us, having a second chance to raise my children or better health. All 3 are constant dreams, probably because I think about them often.

Linda Carmical said...

This one sounds like it would grab me and I wouldn't be able to put it down! I love stories like this, people coming back together, especially when there is a turbulent past!

A dream I always had was to visit those beautiful vacation islands they show on the travel shows. The ones where the huts jut out into the calm blue seas, where you can see the fish thru the glass in the floor. So I read books that take place in tropical settings and live my dream vicariously thru them.

Kara Marks said...
