Great Contemporary Romance!

Very unique story about going on a honeymoon without a groom! There are some funny moments and some heartwarming moments as well.

The narrator brought the story to life. It was fairly easy to differentiate who was talking.

Jolie is definitely a unique character! She is allergic to so many things, likes to prepare and plan for everything, and has just been left at the alter.

Ken is such a nice guy! He takes care of his handicapped sister and is always so thoughtful! I expected him to be a bad boy because of the name and I was pleasantly surprised.

The story was interesting, had some steamy moments, humor, and the narrator did a fantastic job! I'll be looking forward to the next book in this fun series!

A wonderful book to listen to

This is a great book. I loved listening to it. Rachelle Ayala writes another wonderful book and Chris Abell does an outstanding job of narrating it. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to listen to a great romance.

What a gem

If you could sum up Ken: Hawaiian Holiday in three words, what would they be?

The three words I would use would be, Quirky, entertaining, and very enjoyable.

What other book might you compare Ken: Hawaiian Holiday to, and why?

Well to be honest this is not normal genre is reading. But didn't mean I didn't enjoy it, because believe me I did.

Have you listened to any of Chris Abell’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've not listened to Chris Abel before. But he was brilliant to listening of his characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did sit and listen to Ken's and Jolie's story in one sitting. Didn't want to stop really fantastic.

Any additional comments?

Like I have said not my normal genre in books, but am I glad I did. Beautiful characters with very well written story. Would read this author again, without a doubt.

Sweet, Quirky and Hot in One!

Personally I cannot help but want a Ken in my life. It is true he doesn't quite have his life together. He had a head injury that has left him physically vulnerable. He doesn't have a career in place. But none of that overpowers the incredibly hot, sweet and slightly quirky person he is. The story opens with Jolie, a women who likes everything planned to the infinitesimal detail, being stood up at the alter thanks to interferences of her best friends. It was the right thing to happen but it leaves her going on her honeymoon with one of her bestfriends who has plans of her own for Jolie. Only Ken isn't playing by anyone else's rules. He really likes Jolie and embarks on a honeymoon adventure to remember.

But nothing is quite as neat as all that. Honeymoons end and Jolie and Ken both have their insecurities to work through if they really want a chance to make a relationship work.

This is an all-out, throw out your plans, complete with a male escort service, romantic romp the reader cannot help but enjoy!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
