Everybody dreams of a Hawaiian Vacation…
They sell you on the drinks with little umbrella’s, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water PI like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind.
Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island.
And, I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat which was spilling over with drug dealers, Kingpins, and Pedophiles.
Elin and Elena think Cade’s family are the coolest people outside of Snapchat, but it’s hard to meet the parents when your boyfriend is in his late thirties and has never had a serious relationship.
I’d never missed my girls so much in my life, but Amy May, Bea, and Carmen are all dealing with issues of their own, and can’t come to my rescue.
The only thing that may help me with this “vacation” is if I could get Lei’d with Cupcakes.
WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE, SEX, SOME VIOLENCE, AND SHENANIGANS. IF NONE OF THAT BOTHERS YOU, GRAB A CUPCAKE AND READ ON!
Review by Cheryl
Lei’d With Cupcakes is the third book in the Cupcakes series but can easily be read as a standalone which is how I read it, names were brought up that were obviously from the previous books but there’s no confusion as to who they are in relation to the main characters. Lila’s in Hawaii with Cade on what’s supposed to be a vacation/meet the family thing but it soon becomes so much more when the Private Investigator within her doesn’t lie dormant and she manages to find her way into trouble but in this case it’s a good thing. I really wanted to like this soo much more than I did but I couldn’t connect to Lila myself, she’s supposed to be this bad ass Private Investigator I just couldn’t see it myself I found her wishy washy she didn’t really do it for me at all but Cade he was totally different he was confident, sexy in control even a tad dominant. I feel the book would have benefited more if it had been told from his POV along with Lila’s in my opinion he would have been the stronger character. The book does deal with some darker issues but there’s also a good amount of humour and the sex scenes were rather hot they didn’t disappoint.
I enjoyed the authors style of writing and would definitely read another one of her books, this was an enjoyable read but like I already said in my opinion it would have been better if it were written from a dual POV.
This was a relatively quick read a nice way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon along with a warm cup of tea, well that’s how I read it anyway.
