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 standalone.

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.

Oh you stubborn a**es!!

I was worried (as I am with all companion novels) that I wouldn’t like this book as much of the first. I loved Kayla and Sean so I thought I was going to be disappointed when it came to Taylor and Colt. I couldn’t have been farther from the truth!

I loved Taylor and Colt’s relationship stubbornly clashing battle of wits. They were so set on not falling in love through so much of the story that, while it was great entertainment, you also wanted to shout at them to just get on with it already! How two people could be so perfect for each other, so attracted to each other, and yet so stubborn was just beyond my comprehension!

And everything that happens in this book! My goodness! It’s one twist after another. Throw their hot and cold relationship on top and you know you have one steamy, exciting, romancey wild ride!

Favorite character this time around? Juanita, definitely. She is such a sweet, motherly character and I love how she worked her way into this one.

This is an audiobook tour so I suppose we should at least touch on the narration, right? One word – phenomenal. Where my complaint at the beginning of Paradise Cove was about the voices all being similar, that certainly wasn’t the case this time. Maybe it was because I had gotten to know them this time around but it was so easy to listen to this book. And Cynthia Vail did an amazing job yet again!

Disclaimer (same as with Paradise Cove) – This book does have a few very steamy sexual encounters but it wasn’t over the top. I suppose I would call it an 18+ novel but it wasn’t too bad.

[Audio Tour] Paradise Cove – Patrice Wilton [Review & Giveaway]

Paradise Series Banner

This new heart-warming contemporary romance takes place in the Florida Keys and promises romance/passion, and plenty of adventure. 

Cardiac surgeon, Sean Flannigan, lost his daughter to a rare form of leukemia; he can mend broken hearts, but his is beyond repair. Kayla Holmes, along with her sisters, inherited guest cottages in the Keys after their stepfather died. Their high spirits and positive energy are a beacon of light that directs Sean’s sailboat into Paradise Cove. Can Kayla’s compassion find a crack in Sean’s armor? Sometimes love isn’t enough to heal a wounded heart.

Paradise Cove - Patrice Wilton

For the first half of this book, I completely intended to give it 4 stars. Then, I finished up the last 50+ pages in the middle of the night and ended it with a silly grin on my face (yes, those are pretty frequent). The end of the book definitely brought it up to 5 stars.

I did have one issue in the beginning and that was figuring out which of the women was the one speaking. All the voices blended together . . . in the beginning. So I downloaded the Kindle version and tried to read along with the audio. Then, about 1/3 of the way through the book, this wasn’t a problem anymore. The characters’ voices seemed distinct enough, I think. And I really enjoyed the accent Cynthia Vail gave Sean *almost swoons just thinking about him* She did a great job with Sean, as well as with Miguel and his family.

This book was definitely an easy read/listen. I loved the characters and the story had a very good flow/rhythm to it. There were very few, if any, downtime spots. Everything kept moving along so I always wondered what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to dive into the next one (also an audio for me!).

Disclaimer – This book does have a few very steamy sexual encounters but it wasn’t over the top. I suppose I would call it an 18+ novel but it wasn’t too bad.
