I did not expect to like this book so much, but dang girl! I love me some fighters. I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. This story has been told many times, but the author didn't make it seem like I had read this story before, which shows how good she is. This book was RELAXING. The whole story took place on the beaches of Hawaii, and I felt like I was on the beach while reading this book. I just wanted to curl up on my couch (in the sand) with a Bahama Mama (which, of course, I did). The characters were excellent, and it kept me interested the whole time. There was a back story to each character without it being too angsty. Loved it! I will probably read it again.
