Title: Never Let Me Go
Sometimes following your ambitions means losing your heart.
When Celeste McMillan graduated from college, she hit the ground running, prepared to overcome every challenge and climb the corporate ladder at record-breaking speed. But then a client assaults her, and her boss forces her to take a ten-day vacation in Hawaii.
Kanoe Anakalea is intrigued when he meets the pale-skinned, redheaded "haole" on his favorite surfing beach. Celeste is intelligent and adventurous, sexy and sweet. Even though sun, sand and sexy surfers are as foreign to Celeste as the L.A. corporate world is to Kanoe, their sexual chemistry sizzles.
As they spend sun-warmed days and plumeria-scented nights in each other s arms, they find themselves falling hard. Yet love is out of the question. Kanoe is rooted in his island home, and Celeste s future beckons in L.A. As the clock ticks down, Celeste realizes that letting go might be the greatest challenge she s ever had to face.

Are you planning on going on a vacation with some girlfriends or maybe even by yourself? Then this book is totally for you. A true vacation romance fantasy that’s easy to read and just the right amount of hotness.
A young up and coming business woman (I use “woman” loosely since she’s 21) is forced to take a vacation in Hawaii while “things” blow over at work. From the moment Celeste approaches her vacation rental, her “real” vacation begins thanks to the hunk of a specimen Kanoe helping her with her bags.
Kanoe isn’t what you would expect for a local surfer, and Celeste learns the hard way that you can’t judge a book by its cover (nor first impressions). Clearly the sexual chemistry is there between the two, but between family and work drama, can they actually enjoy each other time together? Even for the short period of time they have?
So, my thoughts? Typical girl meets boy. Boy is hot and the girl is pretty/sexy. They fall in love…and YEAH, HEA. I think the thing I liked most about this one though is that there wasn’t a Millionaire/Billionaire who comes and sweeps the girl off her feet. This was a “real” job and “real” life type of story….turned into a “real” fantasy. Didn’t understand that? Whatever. You will once you read it…LOL
Would I recommend it? As an easy reading stand alone, yes. Who knows, maybe this fantasy really could come true in real life. BTW – This was originally titled, “10 Days in Paradise” back in 2014
