Synopsis Book #2: This riveting romance is the second book in the Paradise Cove series set in the Florida Keys. Three high-spirited sisters inherit Paradise Cove Cottages, and each story is a stand alone. Taylor Holmes has a lot on her plate--running a family owned resort, planning a wedding for her sister, and now the added worry as she opens her dream café. Throw in a hurricane and a sexy boat captain who doesn't take no for an answer, and this book will keep you glued to your Kindle. Romance, passion, danger, and hot, hot nights guarantee reading pleasure.
Hooked on you returns readers to Paradise Cove in book 2 of Patrice Wilton's charming series of 3 sisters and their adventures in life and love. While book one set the tone, book two brings the stories of the sisters and mom running the resort and side characters they make into family back to life. And without extensive world building and descriptions of every person, place and thing, book two has more juice...and is much juicier with the romance between Taylor and Colt.
The Holmes family has a real routine going - Paradise Cove is doing well and Taylor now has her own namesake Café. Opening day comes and all is quiet until her good buddy Colt shows up to lend support and pans in traffic to fill her seats and get the word out that Taylor's Café is the place to brunch. Having turned him down repeatedly, theirs is a friendship with flirting and caring until an old flame shows up and sends him into a jealous tailspin. Turns out the old flame is a bad guy and Colt happens to be there to save the day. The classic romance trope friends-to-lovers is successful for a reason - we always want to like the one we love, not just jump his bones (although that helps)!
Naturally the course of true love never runs smoothly and Taylor is unbelievably stubborn and closed off, but Colt manages to persevere. The best part is the chemistry that this pair has - and with a fair amount of meddling from Anna and the rest of Taylor's team, theirs is a hard fought romance win at the end! Who doesn't want an HEA from their summer beach read, right? Having fixed many of the issues that seemed to pop up in book one, book two of Paradise Cover series, will truly have it's readers "hooked".
As for the narration, book two was also read by Cynthia Vail, who again did a nice job voice acting this story. Her slightly huskier female voice for narration and there were no major accent inconsistencies as in book one. Ms. Vail carries the story with strength and delivers characters both male and female that are unique and interesting and keep the reader wanting to keep tuning in chapter after chapter.
I still highly recommend this fun, summer perfect series if you're looking to take your brain on a sunny getaway!
