    Take me to Paradise

    Trent has been given the greatest gift from his sister Kylie. He and his best friend - Mason along with their guest -Paige have been invited to Bandicoot Cove Resort's soft opening. This is perfect timing for Trent, he and Mason have a proposition for Paige and what a better place to make it than in this paradise.

    Trent, a Customs diver is full of adventure and always up for fun while Mason is the smart/romantic type, which helps since he is a romance writer. Since they were kids Mason and Trent have done everything together. So when they come to the conclusion that their summer time fling has grown into something more they are confident that they can make it work. Now all they need to do is convince her.

    Paige is a Canadian pastry chef that's in Australia to experience life. She doesn't expect to come across two hunky Aussie men. She also doesn't expect to fall for both these men at once. She knows stuff like this only happens in fairy tales and doesn't last, but she still can't help her heart from falling and falling hard.

    Trent and Mason have decided it's time for their adventure with Paige needs to sail in another direction and what better place to start off this adventure than at Bandicoot Cove Resort.

    Once again I LOVED this book! Vivian Arend takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions with this one. One minute your on a sexual high (be on the look out for "the chair", that's all I'm saying) and the next you're laughing at the cute banter between the three of them have with each other, to being so made at the characters for heartbreaking moments.

    This is a great addition to the series and we even get a sneak peek at the famous Nick Blackthorne... sigh... Which I hear we will see more of him in Tropical Sin by Lexxie Couper.

    Steamy Read

    When your playtime comes to an end do you give up pleasure times two gracefully or do you go out kicking and screaming? There wasn't so much kicking in Paige, Trent and Mason's story but there was plenty of screaming.the good kind!

    Welcome to Bandicoot Cove or if you read the smoking hot prequel, Exotic Indulgence, Welcome Back! These are four stories that are intertwined between a couple of sets of siblings and some friendships that go deeper than family.

    In book 2, we meet Aussie's Trent and Mason. They have been sharing a torrid fling with Canadian born pastry chef Paige Kingston. Similar to book 1, the reader is thrown head long into the middle of their relationship or in Paige's mind the end of their year long no-strings fling. The problem is one that is typical in a casual romance, emotions become involved when no one's looking. When Paige realizes she unintentionally broke the cardinal rule of flings -- falling in love -- she sees no other choice but to leave. Too bad the men have other, very specific, plans. Plans that involve a couch that isn't, a boat built for three, and a little slice of Paradise.

    One of the aspects of this short story I appreciated, since it begins with a bang, is the bits of backstory Ms. Arend throws in along the way. Paige and Trent both give us some flashbacks of that first intense meeting that guaranteed Paige was the adventurous and outgoing woman they craved. I also liked how no one was overly self-assured of their HEA. Doubts are real. Questions are real. Misunderstandings are real. Ms. Arend does a beautiful job of building the relationship outside the bedroom where the readers feels the chemistry that is honest and not just based on sex.

    It isn't necessary to have read book 1 in this series to enjoy Paradise Found but it does provide a nice setup for the other stories, so I recommend beginning with Exotic Indulgence and then find your way to Paradise and beyond. These are quick reads but you won't feel shorted on story or satisfaction.
