Publisher's Summary

Spend the holidays in Hawaii!   

Aloha to Love by USA Today best-selling author Josie Riviera  

Good-bye has never been this hard...especially when love is saying hello....

Screenwriter Angelina Conte has been butting heads via email with the studio’s unbelievably nitpicky scientific advisor, volcanologist Dr. Caleb Sloane. Between his scheduled lectures aboard a Hawaiian cruise, she intends to prove that she’s no Tinseltown hack.  

Caleb had planned on using this Christmastime cruise to adjust his workaholic attitude. A tough assignment when he’s tangled with the movie studio’s surprisingly stubborn scriptwriter.  

Startlingly, their chemistry is off the charts. But when the studio gives Angelina an ultimatum, she remembers why she put love on the back burner - and why, for her, happily ever after was never in the cards.

A Sweet Romance

I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed the narration. I could picture being on a cruise so easy because I have been on one. When they talked about the waves I could just imagine being on that ship. I loved Angelina and Caleb’s story. They had such different careers but each understood the other’s need to make a go of what they did for a living. If you love a sweet romance you will love this book.
I requested an audio copy of this book from the author but was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Perfect for an afternoon of leisure

This is the perfect audiobook for an afternoon of leisure as it transports you to Hawaii via a cruise.
Angelina Conte is a screenwriter determined to find Dr. Caleb Sloane. The man that has been a thorn on her side since the day he became the studio’s scientific advisor. If it means getting on a cruise, by all means, she’s ready.
Meanwhile Caleb just needs a mental “time out” and the cruise would have been perfect except for the enigmatic and let’s not forget stubborn Angelina.
That said, sparks do go off between the two, much to their demise.
What will happen in the end? Will they give the attraction and love a chance or will work keep them apart?
I was entrusted a copy of this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Great Read

Aloha to Love (Hawaiian Holiday #5) was another great read by Josie Riviera. Angelina Conte is a screenwriter who has been butting heads through email with the studios scientific advisor, Dr. Caleb Sloane. She has scheduled lectures about a Hawaiian cruise and wants to prove that she’s no hack. Caleb wants to use this cruise to adjust his workaholic attitude. Their chemistry is off the charts, then the studio gives her an ultimatum. She knows that she needs to put love on the back burner. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Hawaiian Holiday Romance

Very much a Hallmark movie in book form, this is a nice variance, that takes place on a Hawaiian cruise at Christmas. A screenwriter is tasked with improving her Hawaiian romance movie script by consulting a volcanologist, so they are set up to meet and collaborate on the cruise. Their per-cruise communications are tense and leave a bad taste, but when they meet in person, the sparks fly.

While not unpredictable, this is a very sweet, very safe romance. There is some back story that set up a bit of conflict, but for the most part, it’s a nice romance, and a lovely reprieve during the holiday season.

Quick Listen

This was a sweet and quick listen. I enjoyed Angelina and Calebs story.

I am missing Hawaii so much due to COVID. It was nice to feel the warmth and hear a little bit about my favorite place.

I am curious to read some of the other books in this series now.

It was worth the listen.

Cruising to love

Who could complain about a free Hawaiian Christmas cruise. Angelina can, she has to work. She is a screenwriter and her studio put her on the ship to speak to their scientific advisor, Dr. Caleb Sloane, a volcanologist. He is doing a series of lectures, during the cruise. This will be the first they meet, even though they have emailed before. They will be spending time together to review the script and an attraction comes about. Will their cruise lead them to more than Hawaii.

Nice sweet story

This was a sweet romance, a little predictable but lovely simple listen, great for reading too. I struggled to follow the narrator and couldn’t tell which character was ‘speaking’ at times.
I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review
