Book Review - Love Those Hula Hips

Hokulani Kawelu is a beautiful and very busy girl who co-owns a family owned and operated hotel in Hawai’i. They’ve resisted modernization in favor of an authentic and historical experience, but now they are forced to either seek a financial backer or close their doors. To add insult to injury, their potential backer, James Westerman, insists on a managing piece of the hotel, rather than being a silent partner.

As Hokulani struggles against the unwelcome changes brought by James, she must also fight against the unwelcome physical attraction she feels toward him. Even though he seems to share the feelings, she suspects he’s attempting to use her to manipulate his influence over the way the hotel is run.

Caught between family issues, management issues and an uncertain romance, Hokulani must learn to assert herself in the new business setting while protecting those she loves from the insecurity of the future. Will the romance affect her ability to adjust?

This story was like a vacation in itself, the way it took me right into the scenery and atmosphere of Hawai’i. I couldn’t put it down, and if you enjoy romantic tension and stories that are directly influenced by a beautiful and exotic setting, you’ll love it as much as I did.
