Malie Pukui doesn’t believe in happy ever after. After a tragedy caused her to flee her family and friends in Devon she found a fresh start in Hawaii. Here, working at a surf school, she can give back to those in need and try to overcome the greatest loss in her life.
Moved around foster homes throughout his childhood, Todd Masters has worked hard to be able to offer a brighter future to young disadvantaged children. Now he has his own charitable foundation working with a surf school in Hawaii, a job he loves, but he still can’t put his past behind him.
When Malie rescues Todd from the sea a spark ignites between them, and the two wounded souls find a common ground. But amidst the surf, sunsets and sizzling kisses, can Malie let go of her past and risk something she’d locked away forever… her heart?
I received a copy of this from the publisher Mills and Boon and Netgalley in return for an honest review.
I was very excited to get an e-arc of this one as I loved Georgia’s first book Meet Me In London. Meet Me In Hawaii was just as good. It’s set where Meet Me In London ends, but carries on with Malie, who was a best friend to Victoria, the main character in the first book.
I liked Malie, I loved her lifestyle. How nice would it be to wake up and wander down to the sea, practise your favourite thing; surfing, then spend the rest oft he day teaching this to others. The descriptions of the surroundings were so lovely, and it made me feel all warm and sunny reading this.
I think I liked Tod better than I liked the guy in the first book (Oliver), he seems sweet. He’s kind and cares about the kids he works with. I also quite liked Malie’s godfather, and could picture him perfectly.
The story kind of reminded me of the first one, girl meets rich boy and falls in love, but what’s wrong with that! We all need a lovely easy bit of romance don’t we.
It does mention spoilers from the first book so make sure you have read that one before picking this one up. I hope because of the way it was written about another of the friends, that Georgia carries this on and writes each of the next ones about each of the other 2 friends.
Thank you to Mills and Boon, Netgalley, and as always, the author Georgia Toffolo.
