School Library Journal - Heather Miller
Gr 8-11-Most girls would love to spend their summer on a tropical island. But as she sits at the Aruba airport, sweating from the heat and trying to scratch an itch inside her leg cast, Morgan just knows she's going to hate it. She and her dad have grown apart over the years, and she predicts that this summer will be a disaster: her fair Irish skin will burn, she'll be bored, and she won't have any friends. Soon, though, she's carving out a life in this corner of paradise. A cute boy, a new frie

Meet the Author

Jan Coffey
(a.k.a. Nikoo & Jim McGoldrick)
Nikoo and Jim McGoldrick are storytellers with a checkered past.
From the submarine shipyards of Electric Boat in Groton, Connecticut, and the clubs of Rodeo Drive, to the forges of Pennsylvania and the electronics manufacturers of Massachusetts, these two have spent their lives gathering material for their novels. Nikoo, a manufacturing engineer, and Jim, who has a Ph.D. in sixteenth-century British literature, wrote their first full-length novel in 1994. Since then, Jim and Nikoo have written thirty novels and two works of nonfiction, and they are presently focusing their imaginations on producing romantic suspense thrillers with a decidedly technological slant.
The "Jan Coffey" pseudonym, one of several they have used, is actually a play on their own names: Jan is an acronym for "Jim and Nikoo," and Coffey is Nikoo's maiden name.
These prolific and popular authors have been the recipients of numerous awards for their work. They now reside in Watertown, Connecticut.

Morgan Callahan is a seventeen-year-old girl with a life in turmoil. She's still recovering from a broken leg, hobbling along on crutches. Her mother has just remarried and is indulging in a little private honeymoon with her new husband. Her father, who she hasn't seen in three years, is currently in Aruba for business, and she's passed along to him for the summer. Arriving on a tropical island for a little summer vacation should be calming, but from the very beginning, it's anything but.

Her father is so busy with work-big surprise!-that he sends his twenty-year-old assistant, an intern for the summer, to pick Morgan up at the airport. Heaven forbid Phillip Callahan should take even an hour break from his busy schedule to pick his own daughter up upon arrival on an island in the middle of nowhere. To make matters worse, Phillip is detained in a late meeting, and the only person Morgan has for company is Cyrus "Cy" Reed, that cute assistant of her father's.

Determined to get to know her father better, to get to know Cy a whole lot more, and have a relaxing vacation beneath the Aruba sunshine, Morgan gets a bit more than she bargained for. When a battle begins to erupt between some drug lords and CIA agents, all hell breaks loose on Aruba.

TROPICAL KISS was a sweet story that has it all-suspense, intrigue, a nice island setting, comedy, and a summer spent learning about romance and family dynamics. Morgan is a typical teenager from a broken home. She's struggling to find her own identity, trying to get closer to a father who has always put his business first. With Cy, she finds a man who is both irritating and attractive at the same time, and she has to learn to come to grips with those conflicting emotions.

A well-paced young adult book with down-to-earth characters, TROPICAL KISS is a great read for a summer afternoon spent out in the sun.

Thhis book first gave me the impression that this is just a typical romance but trusting my sisters opinion i read it. OMG!!!! I totally fell for the book (and Cy). What first got me was the intensity shown between morgan and cy the moment they met. I recommend this book for anyone in the mood for a good romance but enjoys a little light action every now and then. I'd love Jan Coffey if she made a sequel but i'm highly doubtful.

This is the most romantic book since the Notebook! By far my favorite romance novel. And trust me, I'm hard to convince! Tropical Kiss is about two kids falling inlove. Togther, they find out the mysteries of her father, and themselves. I recommend this book to girls who have LOTS of tissues!!!!!!
