Pandemic Reading List 2021 – Book Review – Aloha Hideaway Inn by Elana Johnson

I got this free on Kindle

Book Description From Goodreads:

A local island B&B owner hates the swanky high-rise hotel down the beach…but not the billionaire who owns it. Can she deal with strange summer weather, tourists, and falling in love?

Stacey Stapleton owns the premier bed and breakfast on Hawaii’s big island, and she’s not happy about the new twenty-eight story monstrosity disguised as a luxury resort just down the beach. When she books a night to find out what the rooms at Sweet Breeze are like, she’s impressed with the amenities, the view of the bay…and the tall, dark, and handsome room service attendants.

But she’s sworn off men and is focused on her own B&B, her Women’s Beach Club of friends, and living up to her grandfather’s legacy.

Fisher DuPont is the billionaire owner of Sweet Breeze, his first solo business venture since finally leaving his father’s company, and he’s been moving through each department as an undercover boss. So he’s the one behind the room service cart when Stacey opens the door. When he runs into the sassy, gorgeous redhead three more times that day, he takes it as a sign to get to know her better–and reveal his true identity.

As Stacey and Fisher spend more time together, she learns he’s absolutely brilliant, unusually kind, and incredibly hardworking. He’s impressed by her grace under pressure and dedication to clients, friends, and family when a storm hits the island. Can Stacey and Fisher leave their past heartaches where they belong to build a new future together?

I wanted a summer feeling read and came across this on Amazon for free. I thought that I would give it a go, the cover certainly pulled me in!

It had everything that you could ask for; beautiful settings, a strong female lead and a bit of romance.

I loved the characters and the relationships between them all. There was a lovely sense of friendship and support as well as the “forbidden” romance.

The settings were a beautiful beach, a homely B&B and of course the posh, upper class hotel that everyone frowns upon. They were just the sort of settings that are nice to read on a summers day.

Overall it was a light, enjoyable read and one which I wouldn’t mind reading again next summer!

Rated 4/5
