Giveaway & Review: Lana by R.K. Lilley

4.5 Review
We get Lana's story!!!
For those of you who have not read the Up in the Air series....I have to ask WHY THE HELL NOT???  I would read that series before reading this novella, so you know and understand Lana a bit before reading.
When we first met Lana, we had mixed feelings and tried to feel her out.  We knew we needed Mr. Cavendish and Bianca together and we didn't know exactly how Lana placed in that.  After learning of their strong friendship, we couldn't help but fall in love with her.
We even learned through a conversation with Bianca about the love of Lana's life....Akira.
Little did Lana know that that little conversation, led Bianca and James to make a detour on their trip to Japan.  They stopped in and had a little chat with Akira.
This chat is what leads us into the story of Lana and Akira.  It is a novella.
After eight years of being away from her home Hawaii, Lana returns to attend to business with the Middleton hotels.  While she knows she may run into Akira, she can't help but make her first stop to see his family at the Kalua shops.  Auntie and TuTu are her family to, at least that is how she sees them and they return those feelings for Lana.
There surprise and affection for Lana is heartwarming. TuTu is Akira's mother and a spitfire.  She is totally not one to be messed with!  I loved her!!
After spending the day with them, she leaves only to run into the one many she is unable to resist--Akira.
"How many times and how many ways, could my heart be broken by that man?"
R.K. Lilley takes us on an emotionally charged ride full of ups, downs, pain, happiness, great character development, exceptional writing and totally hot bedroom/car scenes!  Not to mention the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, to get swept away in the romance.  Highly recommend this book to all who have read the Up in Air series of books!  You will love Lana and Akira.
We also get a sneak peak at Tristen and Danika's story!!!!!!!! EEEEEKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!  He's a hot, tattooed hunk of a man who can bake cookies and she is a nanny.  I can't wait to see the sparks fly with these two!!!!  R.K. said this book should be out in the next 2-3 months! If we can wait that long!!!!!!!
