Whisked Away (MUST READ!)

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  From best-selling author Melanie Summers comes an irresistibly romantic, delightfully funny tale of love, passion, books, and food…

At twenty-seven years old, Emma Banks has big plans for her life. After graduating from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, she's ready to take her place as head chef at one of her family’s resort restaurants. But upon arrival at Paradise Bay, she’s shuffled off to the resort’s new private island getaway, where she’ll be stuck catering to the rich and shameless. Her first assignment is to serve Pierce Davenport, an infuriatingly arrogant writer with a palate that’s about as adventurous as a plain boiled potato. 

Pierce Davenport is living every author’s dream—his critically-acclaimed Clash of Crowns books have been turned into one of the world’s most-watched television series. The only problem is, he has no idea how to end the epic fantasy tale. After two long years, his fans are turning on him, his publisher is panicking, and the network executives have announced they’re hiring a team of scriptwriters to finish (a.k.a. ruin) his legacy for him. 

In dire need of solitude, he escapes to the Island of Eden for two distraction-free months so he can pull off the impossible—write an entire novel from start to finish. All he wants is peace and quiet, but when disaster strikes, he’s forced to rely on irritating-but-beautiful Emma to deliver more than just three meals a day. 

Putting Pierce and Emma together is like combining orange juice and toothpaste. Will their differences be their ruin or will they be the secret ingredient to each other’s success?

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Well, it is no surprised, that I absolutely LOVED Whisked Away.  Melanie is one my favorite authors (right up with there Meg Cabot, Sophia Kinsella and Janet Evanovich) and I adore her.  What I wouldn't give to have an ounce of her writing talent.  Whisked Away is the 2nd book in the Paradise Bay Romantic Comedy series.  

Please take my advice (do yourself the favor) and do the following
1. Grab Whisked Away (free on Unlimited Kindle - btw!)
2. Call in sick to work and/or hire a baby sitter 
3. Cancel all plans (whatever you need to do-cancel them) 
4. Grab your favorite beverage and snack 
5. Shut off your phone (unless that is the only way you can access the Kindle app)
6. Lock yourself away and enjoy your stay at Paradise Bay!

You won't be able to get enough of Emma and Pierce and you won't want to stop reading, trust me.  Seriously, so funny (like a stitch in your side from laughing so hard), steamy scenes (oh my word Pierce!), a return to Paradise Bay (Harrison, Libby, Rosie and Darnell are all back too!!)....what more could you want? 


Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all of Melanie's books.  Make sure you check them all will NOT be disappointed. Can't wait for book #3 in the Paradise Bay series.  So ready for Leo (Melanie write fast)!  
Here is a link to my reviews:
The Honeymooner (book 1 of Paradise Bay) 
The Royal Treatment (book 1 The Crown Jewels)
The Royal Wedding (book 2 The Crown Jewels)
The Royal Delivery (book 3 The Crown Jewels)

Melanie Summers currently resides in Edmonton, Canada, with her husband, three young children, and their goofy dog. When she's not writing romance novels, she loves reading (obviously), snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house. 

Melanie also spends a lot more time thinking about doing yoga than actually doing yoga, which is why most of her photos are taken ‘from above’. She also loves shutting down restaurants with her girlfriends. Well, not literally shutting them down, like calling the health inspector or something. More like just staying until they turn the lights off. 

Melanie is a member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as the International Women's Writing Guild. Melanie would love to hear from you! She does her best to respond to all inquiries and emails personally. If you would like her to attend a book club meeting via Skype please contact her to book a date.

P.S. she writes also writes steamy romances as MJ Summers.
