Meg Amor ¹ 9 charactersI received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked ReadsI really really enjoyed this story of two men who come to terms with their pasts and accept their futures It is sweet hot sexy and full of Hawaiian and Maori links and legends The characters were all appealing there was little angst just a story that needed telling Rach played an important side role and helped set the scene early on in particular Mikey too played a pivotal part in telling the story I recommend it to you Sometimes writing a book review is harder than I care to admit Usually that is the case for stories I didn t like that are full with mistakes editorial or otherwise or that just didn t do it for me In those cases I want to be honest about my feelings but I still want to honour the fact that someone made the effort to put pen to paper to write down the musings in their head Where it is difficult to write it is even difficult to get your story published and out to the public The fact that someone has done all that deserves recognition and admiration even if I do not care for the end result Besides the fact that I didn t like a story doesn t mean that you won t you might absolutely love it and call me crazy for not getting it However sometimes it is hard to write a review for the exact opposite reasons Hawaiian Lei is such a book for me Written by Meg Amor the story is set on the main island of Hawaii and the setting itself is already breathtakingly beautiful As if that isn t enough Matt and Beau the main characters feel so much alive and so real that I swear I could walk round the corner and bump into them The rest of the cast is no alive The storyline pulled me in from page one and I had to keep reading putting the book away for such mundane things as sleep and food was nthinkableMatt and Beau meet when Matt moves in with his sister after his live especially the gay scene in LA becomes too much to bear Both carry childhood scars even now holding them back But if love is to exist between them those scars have to be faced And they have to be dealt with They decide to see if LomiLomi can help them deal with past hurts and old convictionsAlthough the book is filled with greatly moving scenes there are two that stand out for me The LomiLomi scene is one of those the scene where Beau has a nightmare is the other one he winds p in a highly spiritual place on the island where Matt finds him cowering before his memories It might not sound like a lot for this story it was incredibly vivid and passionateDon t confuse the passion of that scene with the raw heat and passion of the love scenes Ms Amor commands such elouence that the steam "practically rises of the pages Ooh la laHawaiian Lei was powerful cleansing and healing My advice is to "rises of the pages Ooh la laHawaiian Lei was powerful cleansing and healing My advice is to some tissues to hand tears will flow in happiness and in sadnessI happen to know that book two in the Hawaiian series Hawaiian Orchid has already been written Call me jealous but I wish I was Ms Amor s editor they get to read her next book first Wounderful sweet story that cheered me Newtons Cannon (The Age of Unreason, up and glad I took the time to read this I like the common themes intertwined in the story certain spiritual symbols is important t o him and connection to his mother in various waysAlso I like the painter and pilot not sure which is it is Beau or Matt The healing aspect of themselves one chracter has gone through a forgetten childhood trauma theme is intersting scared at first andncovers to find out the details of the truma made me cry Mikey his sister would give advice go slow on this and the brief description of signs and planets of one person characteristics I m interested in different topics in spirituality etcRecommend for those who like Hawaiian gay themes sprituality or just want read a story 5 Heart Review by
can t Bonsái up with enough words to describe how much I enjoyed this book Meg Amour did a fantastic job of bringing these wonderful characters in addition to the beauty of the Hawaiian islands and its people to life I loved her writing style and Matt and Rach s dialect had that perfect touch of the Kiwi that further endeared me to them The multicultural aspect of the book was another thing that drew me in I ve often said that this genre needs ethnic diversity and this author did a really good job of producing characters with a beautiful ethnic background Amour servess the rich cultural history of New Zealand s Maori Hawaii s Polynesian and other natives of that beautiful island and described the scenery of said islands in such rich detail you can practically feel the sand between your toes the sun on your face and smell the gorgeous Hawaiian sea I also loved the relationship between Matt and his sister Their banter reminded me a lot of me and my brotherThe cover is eye catching the color scheme is very pretty and the model with the tribal necklace tattoo is stunning Amour provided you with plenty of descriptions about the land its people and its history but did not drag the book down with wordy descriptions The author managed to strike the perfect balance that made this book that much Beau Toyama biplane pilot and flight instructor on the Big Island of Hawai’i has only been out for a year His last relationship with a man was a disaster When he meets Matt intal who’s visiting his sister he’s stunned by the instant attraction to him But Beau’s afraid to ask for what he needs in a relationship; his anger frightens him The “mixed plate” HawaiianJapaneseTahitian man works on being Zen calm but Matt brings all his emotions to the surface It ncovers a devastating secret from his childhood. Tween Maori Tahitian and HawaiianOf course it s a love story and it has a HEA But there are a lot of plot twists it made this book never boring because it kept surprise me I loved their struggle their laughs their family wellnot each member of the familyyou ll see their friends the landscapes than they re both artists in their own wayI told you there are so many things I loved in it 3 Thank you Meg for you made me discover your beloved islands and want to come over there 3I hope you ll enjoy it as much as I did A Joyfully Jay review 45 starsDid I say this book was different This is not a story of two wounded twenty year old white kids struggling to engage the world and achieve their HEA Not that there s anything wrong with that dynamic but let s face it we have lots of those and it does wear a bit thin after a while at least for meHere the two MCs are Polynesian one approaching his first Saturn return just before thirty and the other almost forty The story itself is Mix Plate Polynesian and draws on the land the history and the cultural values of New Zealand Hawaii and Tahiti in particular That creates a clear difference in communication style the pace of the story plus a distinct generous openness and of course deep mystical connection with the seaSecond in order to sink into the story the reader has to let go of the western European model of logic and causality The story is mystical and the mysticism is not a big deal in itself just a fact of life like being a lawyer or having to earn a livingRead Lloyd s review in its entirety here This story has some wonderful twist with spirits that will draw you in to the story from the beginning Matt see things little different and when he need to reconnect with the land maybe with meeting Beau he will fall out of his funk When you have some much broken trust in one you love it sometimes is hard to have that fall for the one Slowly we see Beau and Matt start their journey together and healing one another Recommend this book and cant wait to read the next one Oh my god I don t know where to start I might just have to start with the emotional stuff with this book how it made me feel I ve said so before but I ll say it again when I walk away from reading a book to me a great book is one that makes me feel The feelings can be very different and even A Little Kinder utter outrage and vile loathing but I feel something towards someone or something I llote Renee Zellweger in Jerry McGuire You had me at hello and that is what Meg Amor had me with Matt She made sure he had me at Hello too Matt is this such a well thought out and planned character he comes alive and grabs you from just reading a few pages He is the man next door not perfect nor a jack ass nor all knowing nor stupid he just is Matt He got issues that are real issues that you can empathize with and relate too he is passionate fun and flirty but ify towards strangers He is an artist out to the tip of his fingers and very spiritual In this book you get to follow his est in love in finding himself in how trusting someone when faith has long time ago beenkimberleyi can t
LOST HOW MEETING YOUR HALF DOESN T HAVEHow meeting your other half doesn t have happen when you like it too how you like it too but you just sort of have to go with the flow and spite being scared you jump all in Beau oh my can someone send me my own Beau shy but not awkwardly so sweet but not sugar sweet so you wonder what the hell but just enough to know he is a man with a heart meant for something great the great being able to love wholeheartedly Beau is the opposite of Matt who comes off as confident but not cocky Beau is iet and a observer He carries a dark secret that no one knows about not even his ex wife who he was married to for over 10 years before he admitted to himself that he was gay Beau loves fast and he loves hard "and he does so forever And since he just like Matt has trust issues both "he does so forever And since he just like Matt has trust issues both them have the obstacle of not daring to trust each other to over come It takes trial and error a few times for them to get anywhere with that What I love most about this book is the flow of the language the way it grabs you even though it s not an action specked book it constantly keep you on your toes wondering what will happen next I love how Matt and Beau fit like two pieced of the same puzzle They are each other s missing piece I loved this story so much I know it will be one of those books I go back to again to reread over and over again Well done Meg Amor Be proud be very proud This is one of those personality pairings I m enjoying so much that I don t even want to finish the book before leaving a review Beau s Hechizos de amor uiet calm and centredness versus Matt s slightly obstreperous malaise and yet they can t keep their eyes or thoughts from one another The heat between them racksp with each chapter as they find each other s highlights blind spots and achilles heelsThe relationship alone is red hot let alone the hot scenes And it s all set in a beautifully described setting which is just real and luxurious it enhances and lifts but never gets in the wayI m barely on chapter 10 and I m The Parisian Prowler urging others to read. New Zealander they’re encouraged to be tough rugged and durable He is but he's emotionally a wreck afraid to show his emotions so he’s surprised when Beau encourages him to be all of himself Has he finally found the freedom to be the man he wants to be The heat between the two men is like watching Pele let her hair down releasing her hot molten lava Will the gorgeous Hawaiian with his long silky black hair and soulful brown eyes finally convince the gypsy nature in Matt to put down roots in another island cultur.
