Kick freeloading ex to the curb: CHECK
Architect Ava Everett's life is falling back into place--now that she got rid of some seriously unwanted baggage. At home in Kona with her friends and family, she lands a coveted dream project, a fun office renovation, and a sexy new guy to play around with. Life is exactly as she wants it.
Billionaire international developer, John Maplewood is masquerading as the ordinary, "boy-next-door." Convinced that women only flock to him for his wallet, he doesn't believe in love. Spending time in Kona, he embraces the chance to just be a regular guy in a world where friends, family, and falling in love matter. But when he's the one falling, it's time for him to come clean and reveal the money behind the man. What started off as fun and free, suddenly has a price he might not be able to afford.

Ava Everett, tired of being ignored by the "good ol boys" club strikes out on her own. Coming home to Kona, Hawaii to set up Everrett Architectural Designs seemed like a good idea at the time. Now she just needs work. Forrest John Maplewood, CEO and President of FJM Global (one of the largest development and international construction companies in the world) is headed, reluctantly, to Kona Hawaii for to celebrate his sister Magnolia's birthday. Introduced on Kona as Magnolia's brother John, no one knows who he really is and he kind of likes it. What he likes even more is his attraction to Ava. How is he going to tell her who he is when her designs win a contract with his construction company? And why is Maile (mama to the Everrett clan and their friends), a known matchmaker, not trying to set up her daughter, Ava with the new arrival John? She is doing her best to keep them apart!
Welcome back to Kona, Hawaii and all our friends at the Big Dive Shop. If you haven't read any of the other Aloha stories that's okay, start with this one and you will be hooked. This is a wonderful "sweet and clean" story with just enough "heat" to make you smile. The story lines ( there are a few) are well thought out, the characters are well defined. The writing gives you the "visual" needed to "see" the story as it unfolds. This is book six in the Aloha series, however when reading it you don't feel like you have missed something. Chris does a wonderful job "introducing" each character as if for the first time in this book.
Jump right in and join the Aloha family. You'll be glad you did.
