Sometimes only an accidental matchmaker can make lighting strike the people who need it most. Zoe moves to Maui to live her dream of being an independent journalist walking the beaches of paradise every day - but she never expected to be doing it with just her dog Sylvester. Divorced and heartbroken, and she ends up in therapy. Adam’s born and bred on Maui, a true "local" who surfs to stay in shape and deal with his many sources of stress: care of his mother, a busy contracting business, and a custody fight for his beloved stepkids. A workplace confrontation sends him to anger management counseling. Adam and Zoe happen to share a therapist who gives them the same advice: Try Internet dating. And though their Crazy Blind Date match-up ignites sparks neither have felt since high school, finding love is complicated by car wrecks, heart attacks, millionaires, misunderstandings and fresh grief. Can Adam and Zoe find a way to live a deeper dream on Maui?

Romance; nothing but romance

Reading the critiques I'd hoped there would be a little more to this book than the average romance; a relationship of a man and a woman; searching for and finding the partner that is their destiny; the one. That portion of this audiobook was pretty good as far as that went. There were very few portions of the narrative in which I didn't like both Adam and Zoey. Though I have to say that they both seemed to have been transported fifty years ahead in time. Perhaps it's just me and the people that I know but these two have been less sexually active than everyone I know personally. I appreciated the setting and I learned several things about Hawaii that I hadn't known. The Rodriguez family is great, and though they are presented as paragons of goodness they feel realistic.
I felt as though there were some huge holes in the story and just as with many books of this type the plot was lacking. The saving grace of this book as well as this genre is that the author(s) created a lot of very likable characters; as well as a few intentionally unlikable ones.
This is an enjoyable listen if you're doing something else at the time and have the luxury of splitting your concentration or if it's part of a compromise with a feminine companion it's pretty good listen.

Loved the story line and character development. Narrator effective soothing. Depicts how miscommunication can be damaging and how important it is not to assume.
