Someone to Love Me

“Noelani” starts with two brothers; Ethan and Paul Dubois. They are going on a winter retreat at a resort in the mountains, a tradition for the brothers over the last ten years. They take their girlfriends along and shortly after getting on their way, their rental car dies in the middle of a blizzard. They get the attention of a reluctant driver who stops for them. After a lot of pleading, Noelani decides to give them a ride to where she is going. Noelani takes care of her grandmother, Obaasan, and knows that there will be a harsh punishment for being late. Because the blizzard is so bad, the visitors stay three days and are treated fairly well. Not Noelani. The next three days are torture for her. Unfortunately, Ethan, Paul and their girlfriends see the effects of it and Ethan develops feelings for Noelani. By day three, Noelani’s grandmother throws her out with nothing on her back. Feeling betrayed by the one who is suppose to love her, Noelani walks out and no one tries to stop her.

Years pass and Paul sees Noelani working at a local restaurant. Paul wants what Ethan wanted two years prior - Noelani. What can he do to get her and how is he going to keep Ethan from finding out? Who and what is in Noelani’s future?

This story had me heated at the beginning and then a different kind of heated later. Noelani is the type of character that you can’t help but to cheer for. With an emotional rollercoaster of drama and twists, Deborah Jones' “Noelani” is one really good read.
