Review: Mele Kalikimaka, Baby by Melissa Schroeder

Mele Kalikimaka, Baby (Hawaiian Holidays, #1) by Melissa Schroeder

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand Publishing
Genre: Menage Romance

Heat Rating: 2



When Sophia Cantwell gets stuck working in Hawaii on Christmas, she isn't too happy. She doesn't like trying to buy land from a Hawaiian family, especially when she is convinced that her company isn't being ethical. When she is confronted at the airport by the landowner's grandsons, cousins Maleko and Jack Akaka, she doesn't expect the jolt of arousal or the instant attraction. And she doesn't expect them to insist that she stay at the family's condos.

Mal and Jack have shared women before and have thought about getting that one special woman for the two of them. Both of them are surprised that she turns out to be an uptight, corporate go-getter. But the three of them cannot ignore their attraction, and a night out in Honolulu turns into a night in bed for all of them.
But when Sophia's ex-lover and boss arrives unexpectedly, will she be able to walk away from her dreams of climbing the corporate ladder, or will she lose Mal and Jack?

Yadkny's Review

Sophia comes across as the kind of independent career-driven woman that most people would associate with having a frosty heart. Her closest relationships are with her two best girl friends since she has no family to speak of. Much to her friends' disappointment, Sophia has been extremely focused on her career as of late and her boss/former lover has been taking full advantage. She's been sent on a business trip to Hawaii over Christmas break, which Sophia believes is because she refused to continue to sleep with him after she found out he was married. The girl may be single, but she does have morals. What should be a relaxing and romantic trip, for Sophia is just another day of work only this time in paradise. Sophia’s friends thinks she’s a coward for not standing up to her boss, but if she can just hang in there a little longer, she can finally be free of him for good.

Cousins Mal and Jack are back in Hawaii ready to defend their turf from the corporate busy body they're expecting to arrive. Their grandmother is considering an offer to sell her land, but the cousins are fully prepared to stake their claim and do whatever it takes to make the offer go away. What they aren’t prepared for is the woman inside the stuffed business suit exterior that immediately calls to their more basic instincts. Jack is willing to just dive right in, but Mal remains vigilant to deal with business matters first before pleasure.

Readers should be prepared to get taken away to an island tropical paradise where the temperature isn’t the only thing that heats up. Make sure to leave your troubles at the door because this is one vacation holiday that you’re not likely to soon forget. It's easy to be captured by the two handsomest Hawaiian's I've ever had the pleasure of reading about. Mal and Jack have no qualms with the kind of lifestyle they want to lead and Sophia's character seems like the perfect match for them. While she gets taught a lesson in losing her inhibitions, Mal and Jack are taught a lesson in losing their heart. The setting is perfect for taking any fantasy to the next level, so why not give this ménage by Melissa Schroeder a try?
