A surprise vacation that offers more than relaxation…
College Senior Kayla Cannon has a plan: obtain her R.N. license and begin the Family Nurse Practitioner Program. Focused on studies, Kayla has zero time for romance. And everything falls into place until she goes on vacation to Kauai, and tour guide, Kai Hale, keeps showing up with his swoon-worthy abs. Kayla’s perspective changes once she gets to know Kai better. But one thing holds firm; her V-card won’t be handed over so easily. Or will it?
Infatuation or first love? Either way, are they strong enough to survive the impossible…
Kai Hale is living the life—tour guide by day, playboy by night. At the age of twenty-four, he has no aspirations for settling down. That is until a sexy brunette shows up on his tour. He can’t get the pesky mainlander out of his head. And running into her everywhere isn’t helping. When fate lands them together, he decides to take a chance—even if that chance risks breaking his heart in the end.
The Unforeseen Destiny books are stand-alone romance novels with no cliffhangers. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not recommended for readers under the age of 18.
A thing I love about this book is the setting, the story take place in Kauai and I really like that. The author is very good at describing a magical place like this one, I really believed I was there with Kayla and Kai. And now, I want to go there and see all the wonderful places she described.
I also like the characters, Kayla is young and naïve but she determined, she wants to be a nurse and she wants to lose her virginity to a person she love. I really like when Kimberly Readnour described her in the eyes of Kai when she looks at the beauty of the island. Kayla is falling in love with Kauai, just like her mother before her.
Kai is a manwhore but he’s also a very good guy, I love to see him trying to resist to Kayla’s charm. That was very fun and he’s not very good at it. He’s protective and jealous of course but he’s also very sweet and he can be a real gentleman.
I love Kamp, he’s so funny with all his cheesy lines.
The story isn’t only a love story it’s also about friendship, family and health. Kayla’s mother has two secret and the truth will be hard for Kayla. It’s also a story about long distance relationship and how they are not easy at all.
I like the story because Kayla is not the usual heroin, she’s smart and her reactions are important in the story. She can be angry with her mother but in the end she knows that the time is limited and she must forgive her. Sometimes, she irritates me because she’s naïve and she doesn’t see that the things she does can make Kai very jealous. She always thinks that her best-friend doesn’t see her like a girl he wants to take in his bed.
The story is told by Kayla and Kai, I like that because we have two pov, very different and it’s nice for the story to have them.
Kimberly Readnour is good for describing places and she has created some amazing characters. I’m very impatient to read the second book in the story because I really like her writing style.
Quick word: A beautiful story of love and family who takes place in Kauai.
