You can follow the rules or you can follow your heart...
Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And so far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she'd always craved - until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks.
Luke lives fast and wild. When he meets Sienna, he's convinced that some no-strings-attached fun is just what she needs. As their nights quickly turn from playful to passionate, Luke can't deny the deep connection he feels. But there's a reason Luke doesn't do long-term. He can't promise Sienna forever, when the enormity of his past has shown him just how fragile the future can be . . .
The Edge of Never was one of my favorite reads so I was looking forward to reading this new book by author J.A Redmeski.
The story is about Sienna and Luke. Sienna is a an events organiser and is in Hawaii for a wedding she is organizing. However once in Hawaii Sienna begins to think there should be more to her life and then she meet Luke. She agree to spend 2 weeks with Luke to see if there is something more out there for her. Luke helps her to learn there is more to life than money and Sienna also helps Luke face the secret pain he spends most of the book hiding from her.
I did enjoy this book but I just wish there was more to it, There was no drama and no angst. It was a simple story of self discovery. Some parts of the story I did struggle with the story and I would put it down and then pick it up again. The author built up Luke secret like it was going to be a big twist but it wasn't. However it did have that the Edge of Never feel to it. I did like the build of Sienna and Luke's relationship although they both thought it was only for 2 week they both slowly accepted that it building for more.
I wish I had this book when I went on holiday in June because it would make a great beach read. Although this is a standalone I can't help but wonder if some other characters would get their story as I felt there was one there to tell.
Overall a great light sweet romance read.
