Handsome, wealthy Quinn McCallister is the most eligible bachelor on McCallister’s Paradise. Making his family's island resort a success is all that matters to this workaholic. Everything changes when he meets the beautiful new massage therapist...

Larissa Benner may have survived cancer, but its aftermath left plenty of problems besides the ever-looming fear of relapse. Her family nearly went bankrupt paying for her life-saving treatments. She desperately needs the full-time therapist position on the island and the benefits that come with it. The last thing she wants is problems with her boss, or a complicated office romance.


It’s hard for her to resist Quinn’s charms—or his passionate side. However, Quinn is married to his job. The choice between love and work is tough for him to juggle and has Larissa scared. If the cancer recurs, could she count on him to be there for her? Or would he leave her to face it alone, ending her relationship in tragedy?

My Review


It 's a quick read, funny, romantic but not at all trivial. The beginning is amazing. In addition to it sets in a fabulous place: a private island on Hawaii where there is a family's resort and breathtaking waterfalls.
Quinn is a nice divorced guy, has nearly thirty years, has two intrusive parents, three brothers and a sister, and has one purpose in life: work, work, work. One day will direct the island resort in place of his father and makes sure to be ready but this leads him to work so many hours of the day and not think about anything else. His marriage is over for this but also because there was no love.
Larissa was very bad but now the nightmare seems to be over. She makes the masseuse in the resort and is about to be confirmed for the whole year. It 's a dream come true: work in a beautiful island and be able to pay for medical care in case the disease reappears. Until Quinn, the son of her boss, makes an indecent proposal. The girl is almost tempted to accept, just because she needed a job to have health coverage, but fortunately refuses. It's a test of the family to assess her reliability: they were disappointed by the previous masseuse who has sullied the family name.
Once clarified the situation, between Quinn and Larissa comes slowly something but he is too focused on work and threatens to ruin everything! Will Larissa to become more important than work?
It 's a perfect summer reading, perhaps on the beach, but it's fine at any time of the year to dream a wonderful holiday on a beautiful island.



Diving Into Love - Book 2

Parker McCallister is the playboy of the family, never having a care in the world beyond his next fling. When Sierra Burns nearly runs him down on horseback, she challenges him in ways he's never experienced. Now all he has to figure out is how to capture this beauty's heart, and this time it is about more than sex and fun for him. 

Shortly after meeting Parker, disaster strikes for Sierra and her secret troubles are revealed. Now she needs his help in the worst way. The only problem is she wants to earn her place in life and have a chance to be the person she wants to be, not who her rich parents expect of her. Taking charity from Parker or his family would feel like a lie to her convictions, and she doesn't want dating him to be a condition of accepting their help. 

Despite her hesitations, Parker's charms and charisma are hard to resist. Just when she gives up fighting against the attraction and allows herself to hope for love, his past foists a surprise on the new couple and throws Sierra's life out of balance...again.

Sydney McCallister isn't looking for love, especially not from an overbearing man demanding money for his charity after missing the cutoff date for proposals. Doesn't Matthew Coleson realize his organization isn't the only one hoping for a grant from the McCallister family? Tired of dealing with the constant stream of angry people and feeling terribly homesick besides, Sydney wonders if she should give up on New York and head back to the family's island resort. 

When Sydney's office is trashed and she receives a threatening message, she's certain Matt must be responsible. After confronting him, however, she learns there is more to this man than is apparent at first glance. There's something about his eyes... besides, who can resist a man who helps homeless people get back on their feet? He seems to truly care about people and swears he would never hurt anyone.

Together, they work to uncover the identity of the person threatening Sydney, and Matt seems determined to keep her safe. Questions remain for her, despite the excitement Matt brings to her life... Does he care about her for herself, or is he more interested in her family money and what that could mean for his charity?

Love's Ride - Book 4 and Cooking Up Love - Book 5 coming soon!
