Publisher's Summary

Paradise isn't quite what it seems as four college friends meet for an island vacation in this captivating new novel from the acclaimed author of These Girls.
Following a once-in-a-lifetime invitation, a group of old college friends leap at the chance to bring their husbands for a week's vacation at a private villa in Jamaica to celebrate a former classmates' 35th birthday.
All four women are desperate for a break and this seems like a perfect opportunity. Tina is drowning under the demands of mothering four young children. Allie needs to escape from the shattering news about an illness that runs in her family. Savannah is carrying the secret of her husband's infidelity. And, finally, there's Pauline, who spares no expense to throw her husband an unforgettable birthday celebration, hoping it will gloss over the cracks that have already formed in their new marriage.
The week begins idyllically, filled with languorous days and late nights of drinking and laughter. But as a hurricane approaches the island, turmoil builds, forcing each woman to re-evaluate everything she's known about the others - and herself.

painful to listen to

The narrator was fine. What bugged me the most was the annoying things the characters said, so stereotypical, ("I'll take a sex on the beach and maybe a drink too " as she looked at him and winked. ) The most annoying scene was in the hurricane when the one main character went out on the deck to hide a picture, so unrealistic and cheesy. I can't even go into detail bc I had to immediately read another book to get this one out of my head. .

bottom line. If you like rolling your eyes every time a character says something so dumb and fake or if you like failed romance novels, this is for you.
