Island of Flowers
Laney Simmons travels to Hawaii to meet her father. She finds out that in her 15 year absence much has changed even that her father owns the plane company that is flying her in.
The pilot, Dylan O'Brien, half owner, sees her as an upscale princess and treats her as such. She studies him while he's conducting business and sees how surprised he is to see her.
She learns the truth about her education and how her father had paid for it all and then some...
Loved hearing of the scenery as she realizes what is really going on...

HELL HATH FROZEN OVER. I never thought I'd see the day that I would hate a [a:Nora Roberts|625|Nora Roberts|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1265820113p2/625.jpg] book. I hated this so much, I felt like Madeline Kahn from Clue when she describes why she killed Yvette.

I hated [it] SO much...flames...flames...on the side of my face...

It all started out innocently enough--a twenty-something woman goes to Hawaii to find the father she hasn't seen in 15 years. At the airport, an attractive man offers her a charter flight to the island of Kauai, where her father is. As it turns out, the guy is her father's business partner. On, no joke, page 5 or 6, while they are still on the effing plane, he kisses her. (unwanted) He proceeds to treat her like dogshit for most of the entire book and accuse her of ulterior motives for reappearing in her father's life. (money, obviously)


There was a whole lot of, "here's why I am like this but DON'T TELL ANYONE!!!!!?:ESDKJFEOKLNM" going on. Barf. And a whole lot of rape-kissing. There was absolutely no chemistry between the two characters. I felt like giving up on this book more times than I can count and it is only 165 pages long.

This was one of her first books and it totally shows. I've probably given Nora Roberts more than $1,000 of my money over the years. (no joke) Today, when I was cleaning out my garage, I found 4 sets of double books. (hello bookswap) I must own over 150 of her books. So I feel no remorse in saying that this is BY FAR the worst of hers I've ever encountered. The only redeeming point was that there was a double rainbow across the sky in the book.

Nothing But Nora Week 2011, Book 3.

Book description
Laine Simmons travels to Hawaii for a reconciliation with her long-estranged father. She barely remembers and encounters the suspicious Dillon O'Brian, her father's disarmingly handsome young business partner, to oppose her. But he would not believe her. Dillion is convinced that Laine is responsible for the family misunderstanding. He is sure that Laine is only after her father's money. Now Laine must fight her growning attraction for this stern, loyal man. No matter how much she craves it, she knows that she can never find love with a man who mistrusts her.
