handed over to Kessler Rocha for a three month trial Her ex coworker and ex lover He s the guy that broke her heart five years ago, he s the reason why she uprooted her life and moved thousands of miles away Now five years later after knowing he didn t want kids or any sort of commitment or marriage he now has full custody of his three year old son She was the girl that I cut loose once I realised I didn t want any commitment from her and that things would be better for us as co workers Fun days aheadNova is such a strong heroine with a forked tongue so the two and fro banter between these two scorches the pages and sets up the right pace for an angsty from enemies to lovers story perfectly.Kessler is an Ex NHL player with the body of a wet dream, he had me swooning like no other,

her boss took off and that she now has to work under he ex lover that broke her heart years prior Kessler recently obtained custody of his 3 year old son and he desperately needed a change for them both, so a new job in Hawaii was something he couldn t say no to The fact that he would work with Nova again and he always thought of her as the one that got away was a huge perk for him to accept the position There was some big baggage they had to work through, some hot sexy times, and some laugh out loud momentsand they get a HEA ending.POV This alternated between Nova and Kessler s POV.Overall Pace of Story Good I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well.Instalove No, but some strong feelings were still present when they are reunited.H rating 4.5 stars Kessler I really liked him He messed up in the past, but I appreciated how he recognized his faults and tried to fix them I also appreciated his relationship with his son, and he cracked me up a few times.h rating 3 stars Nova I liked her quirks and how she was a driven professional woman I did struggle with her inability to open up and her pushing the H away at times though.Sadness level Low, no tissues neededPush Pull Yes view

typos in here are insane The writing is very sloppy I have it in my head that Halle is a great writer in the sense that she writes in a way that makes it very easy to read like, I don t really feel like I m straight up reading a book, I feel like I m in a story I didn t get that here.The only thing I liked was the setting, which I really liked a lot But I m biased on that, so take that with a grain of salt Still, it s what s making this go from 1 star to 1.5 stars for me.If this was the first book I had ever tried of this author, I probably wouldn t pick up another one For reference tho, I was a huge fan of Halle s earlier books in the EIT series back in the day This book is only the 2nd contemporary romance from her that I ve tried Anyway Moving on flag 22 likesLike see review View 2

feel asleep around 4 am while reading the book I didn t hate either character and in some level I understood Kessler s motives when he broke things off with Nova I liked Nova a lot, even when I didn t agree with her which is weird The writing was good in some places and in others I had a string of WTF thoughts running in my head, like Mike s entire plot, which was crazy The pages were simply turning and I had no problem reading the book in spite of the bad things which are listed right below this paragraph.I don t understand for the love of me, how I could like even a little a hero who broke things of with the heroine and two days later he slept with the receptionist of the officed they worked together That was disgusting and it explains why I never loved Kessler and I never will The thing is though that for him it was clear from moment one that what he and Nova had was just physical and maybe that s why I couldn t hate him He portrayed their relationship like it was just that and nothing that Nova said indicated that he was into something romantic and that is weird since Nova paints another picture In the first chapter or two, she says that Kessler is the only man who was a 10 in her heartbroken scale, which made me believe that they had something serious going on and as it turned out, it wasn t It s like they were into a different relationship for the lack of better word at the moment and that was confusing and a bad spot for the book Kessler redeemed himself in the end though in some ways and it gave some points to him and the book flag 13 likesLike see review

case, and she s horrified and enraged to discover that the new guy who will be her boss turns out to be the man that broke her heart five years earlier Kes is an ex NHL player who previously worked for the same hotel chain as Nova, and the last time the two of them worked in the same office they started a steamy affair Nova fell hard for Kes, but he was clueless to that fact and wasn t ready for an actual relationship, and after he left her shattered she moved to Hawaii for a fresh start And now he s back with his three year old son in tow, and from his first glance at Nova, he knows that it was a mistake to ever let her go Let s just let bygones be bygones and pretend you and I never happened That s not going to be easy, I tell her.Because I don t want to pretend we never happened I want to do the opposite.I want I think I just want a second chance to see if things can work this time around. I love this set up And the story gets off to a great start when Nova makes it clear that she s not happy to have Kes back in her life Getting over him was the hardest thing she ever did, and though he s looking better than ever, she is determined to protect her heart and that means staying away from him as much as possible I hate you, I hiss at him.He smirks You only hate that you want me Same difference I don t think so, he says. Karina Halle writes wonderfully real, flawed characters They aren t perfect, they re relatable, they make mistakes and they sometimes say the wrong thing, and that s what makes them so much fun to read And she s done a great job with Nova and Kes I love them individually, and together they are an absolute powerhouse, with fantastic chemistry, great banter, and so much emotion between them The sexual tension sizzles off the page as they argue and bicker, and you can feel all of that passion from so long ago effortlessly rebuilding until it reaches boiling point, and with their feelings and lust for each other all twisted up, it just gets better and better Nothing has felt hotter, the slick sounds, the way he s exerting himself, grunting with each powerful thrust Come for me, he bites out Fucking come for me Fucking make me, I tell him through a moan. It s hot, sexy, and a little dirty, and it s absolutely fantastic They have their ups and downs, but it s all very believable, and watching them follow their hearts and figure out the journey is funny, gorgeous, and beautifully swoony Every cell in my body is begging for her, wanting to know what it s like to have her heart I want her heart, to possess it, to protect it and never let it go. This is such a great read with lots of laughs, heart and steamy time and just the right amount of drama to keep things interesting without bogging the story down Karina Halle writes great sexy rom

just had a very smooth flow and it was easy to read The reason for why Kessler and Nova broke up was refreshing, and not clich I can t blame for Nova feeling somewhat of a resentment towards him, but eventually she admits that she was a bit to blame as well Kessler comes across as very arrogant someone who always gets what he wants and knows what to do, but I loved seeing his vulnerable side as well Those moments were sometimes very funny The story was set in Hawaii, which was perfect, and I loved getting glimpses of this beautiful state I need to remember what happened the last time Kessler and I got together this way No matter how good it feels, no matter how badly my body needs it, it s my heart that will pay the price Kessler is still trying to figure out how to be a parent, and his interaction with his son Hunter was extra cute and amusing Nova is ambitious, and very dedicated to her job So it means war when Kessler comes and swoops in on the position she s been wanting for a while now The banter between them was funny, and the sexual tensions were very high These two were equals and they knew how to handle each other They both went through personal growth, which made them mature and better equipped to be in a healthy relationship this time around Karina Halle is a very talented author who keeps on delivering great stories featuring awesome characters I fell in love with all of them, and I didn t want to say goodbye None of her stories feel recycled, and I always feel like her stories are refreshing and original So make sure you one click this fun and sexy

dick I didn t see much depth in either of them or growth, despite this trying to be portrayed It just didn t work for me Neither of them displayed any sense of the professionalism that would be

whole lot of heart which when it was combined with some great characters as well as a few unique stars who stole the show and it being set in my island homewell, this one was all kinds of goodness that had me devouring it in no time flat and wanting I have to say, Nova and Kessler definitely took me for a wild ride, a fun one overall, but a ride These two are complex and yet easy to connect with at the same time I really liked Nova She s driven, intelligent, sassy, and sweet She is a bithard headed, but considering the bruises on her heart, I couldn t find fault with how she viewed the world Kessler is a good man, and I really liked him, but there were somethings that he wasI don t want to say clueless, because he is pretty on it most of the time, but short sighted And that made him both frustrating, yet endearing which made him quite fascinating all around.Nova and Kessler s journey to their HEA was definitely a crazy one, but despite their very convoluted past, it wasn t as angsty as I thought it would be Yes, this is under the RomCom umbrella, but even RomCom s can be angsty This isn t to say that there weren t moments between the two that didn t have me rolling my eyes, because there were, but they were far and few between Things were intense between them all around, but of the push pull and still be civil variety The funny thing is that throughout the story, I waffled on whose team I was on as the details of the pasts were unfolded and I finally got the big HD version of all that happened between them, and honestly they were both equal participants in it all, so I never truly chose a side except for one situation and we re getting to that , but found that they were pretty much perfect for each other and I really wanted them to work through it all and be together Now for the one time I chose a side It was pretty huge deal, even I can t deny that, and understood all the reactions and what not, but I when it all came down to it, I was firmly TeamNova FIRMLY And the way things worked out after only had me loving her even.Now, I loved Kess and Nova, but what really made this book a 5 star for me were some of the situations they found themselves in that, being born and raised on O ahu, I could totally relate to because I ve been in those situations and honestly reacted in the same way Except for the chicken thing That has never happened to me EVER But the others Yeah, been there done that and I do hate to admit it, but had similar reactions to Kessstill do honestly, but those little vignettes, along with how much the author simply loves and respects my island home, made this read so much fun for me It definitely made me feel as if I were home with my family just hanging out, eating, drinking and praying for those trade winds to kick up.As for the supporting cast of characters, they were all very well written and with the exception of one, who actually added a really interesting twist to the story, I loved them all They definitely gave a lot of depth to the story and helped to bring out that island feel that you can only find in Hawaii IMHO and I wouldn t mind if a couple of them got their own HEA s in the future because they definitely deserve to get them.So, if you re looking for a laugh out loud RomCom that will take you away to a sandy beach this winter, then this is a definite must read Copy provided by the author via

Nova is my favorite type of heroine She is driven, focused and a seriously hard worker She is a woman of color trying to make it up the corporate ladder and after working her ass off, she apparently gets passed over for a promotion that she rightly deserves Who does it go to None other than Kessler Rocha, the level ten heartbreaker who ripped her heart to pieces years ago As you can imagine, Nova doesn t exactly have a warm welcome for Kessler and at first their interaction is hostile at best I loved the banter between these two Their fights were the best kind of foreplay Poor Kessler is actually kind of clueless because he has no idea of how broken Nova was all those years ago That s because Nova is a tough chick She puts up impenetrable walls and doesn t allow people to see any form of vulnerability Old flames rekindle though and the super sexy Kess who dotes on his son is hard to resist This story is set in Hawaii and the author did an amazing job of using that environment to set the satge for her hilarious moments Let s just say leprechauns, mosquitos and geckos played an interesting role in this book And let s not forget the chickens OMG guys This was so hilarious and so

though She returns to work to find out her boss has quit so she has a fleeting moment of hope that she will finally get the promotion she has worked so hard for.Her bubble is popped when she is informed she will in fact have a new boss, one she knows very well In fact, he is her ex not just your run of the mill ex, her level 10 heart breaker ex someone she has no desire to see again, even though 10 years have passed by This is a guy she thought she would marry and have children with but once he made it clear that this was not part of his long term life plan things ended pretty quickly.When Nova first sees Kessler again she is a bit miffed that he looks so damn good, it s so unfair how men get better looking with age Of course, she is still judging his character based on their past history However, the Kessler she meets is a very different man His life has changed a lot since she last saw him and she now is seeing a new side to him, one she once imagined sharing together.When Kessler and his young son find themselves in a bit of a pickle, Nova is happy to help and things begin to change between them Maybe enough time has passed and along with that some maturity took seed in both of them The friendship between Nova and Hunter is really sweet I love how easily their lives seemed to meld together, it just felt right this time.However, this is only a temporary arrangement and Nova is not willing to really put her heart on the line with this man unless he is all in And then there is the job situation, what happens when his contract finishes, will she finally get the chance to shine or will she always play second fiddle to Kessler This was a fun friends to lovers read while I was enjoying my summer holiday I loved that there were two geckos in

    2. DNF 16% So, I think I m lacking this kind of sense of humor, because despite trying really hard to enjoy it I can not seem to find it funny actually, quite the opposite Annoying, meaningles and plan The MC s are so boring that I can not relate to any of them, precisely the heroine, she s very very veryyyy annoying And what the matter with the sweat thing Ugh, just gross Sorry, nothing personal but this one here is not for me.

    4. Nope Hero breaks up with heroine and then a few days later has sex with the receptionist at their workplace Disgusting pig.They d been sleeping together for months and the heroine was in love with him but he didn t love her and didn t want commitment The things I wanted then weren t love and security, they were cheap thrills and hot sex with different women I loved being with Nova but I didn t love her back then, and that was the truth.

    6. I was going to DNF this but then I picked it up again and actually ended up finishing it The story never did get me completely invested The backstories of the characters are pretty dull, and the characters themselves weren t compelling at all I was never able to warm up to Kessler in particular, as his character pretty much sucked Nova was just okay They didn t have much chemistry to me For a romantic comedy, I didn t think this was funny at all It just wasn t my kind of humor I guess I I was go [...]
