Publisher's Summary

Single mom Haley Turnbow escapes to the tropical Isla del Sol for an ideal vacation with her five-year-old. She's planning on lazy beach days, great food, and a happy kid. She doesn't plan on the resident hotel ghost stalking her and the island's fine-looking owner drawing her in with his confident, fun personality.

Cal Johnson is king of his own island, happy and busy. Thoughts of a family are on the horizon but always seem out of grasp - until a beautiful mom and her wild little boy flip his world upside down. He falls in love with both of them. Realizing they're going to leave at the end of their vacation, he does everything in his power to capture Haley's heart.

Haley and Cal may be able to enjoy a vacation romance, but can what they feel translate to the real world? Only a giant leap of trust will give the answer.

I borrowed the audible on KU and LOVED the narrator. I think she did a fantastic job and will seek out more books she has done.

As for the book itself. I loved the hero, I did not love the heroine. This could have been a great Cinderella type trope but she basically ruined it. Way too defensive and stubborn. Also, the 5 year old boy was also a bit much. It was cute in the beginning but then just tipped overboard.

If the heroine was more open to the hero, I really think I would have enjoyed this book. It IS called the Independent One, so the warning is in the title. I will try others in the series to see if the heroines are better.

Ok story

Although this story needed more character development and story time, the reading was perfect. I love to listen to Amy McFadden. Excellent actress!
