Connected by the Sea (Hawaiian Crush Book One)



Sydney is attending University of Hawaii on Oahu where she’s majoring in Marine Biology. She loves her friends, her job, and her school. Since her ex-boyfriend cheated on her six months ago, she hasn’t moves onto anybody new yet. When Coen catches her eye, she’s immediately attracted to him in a very carnal way. She refused to let herself feel that way because he’s a heartbreaker just like her ex was. But when she’s called to her professor’s office because she’s asked to tutor someone, she doesn’t realize it’s Coen. Will he convince her that he really is boyfriend material or will he turn out just as she suspects?


This debut was a quick, romantic read!

Ah, to be young again!  Sydney’s a sweet and very intelligent college student, that’s full of ambition.  Her brilliant mind, academically, isn’t matched with common sense; however.  She’s in denial about her best friend, too accepting about her “family”, and not aggressive enough with her own needs.  I couldn’t help but like her, though, as she has a heart of gold and carries a tragic secret that would break a weaker person.

Coen’s my type of hero.  A sexy bad-boy with a reputation was always my green flag, and I just love the quiet ones! The stories have a way of twisting into the worst thing imaginable, which leaves no room for the truth.  In Coen’s case, he’s been pegged both right and wrong.  I had fun as he revealed both the devil and angel inside of him to Sydney.

There were scenes that were sensually enticing, and some that were downright erotic.  I was entertained, frustrated, and intrigued throughout.  The ending satisfied a few things, but left plenty of room for more.  I look forward to the rest of the series!
