    4.5 starsThis book blew me away with how enjoyable it was! I loved the story, I loved the individual characters, I loved the writing, and I loved the humour. All of those elements combined and created a novel that was way more than I expected. As for the story, all I can say is this: think of a cynical polar opposite younger-hotter-dreamier-steamier George R. R. Martin who has isolated himself since rising to fame. This author then falls into a r...

    I don't know how Melanie Summers keeps topping herself with each new book, but she manages to do it every single time and her stories never fail to surprise, impress, and delight me! Whisked Away is a follow-up to The Honeymooner and mostly takes place in Paradise Bay, a gorgeous tropical locale where there's a resort owned by the Banks family. In Book One, readers were introduced to eldest brother, Harrison, and this time around we meet and delv...

    CuteHere are some of my thoughts: For this whole series in general, I love the strong family and friendship themes. It is funny how Pierce is a famous author of Clash of Crowns, the equivalent of Game of Thrones. I love how Emma has helped him with the typing and she gets to experienced his story-telling of the conclusion to his series. Emma is a chef and I appreciate that she has her own dreams and wants to commit to helping her family. She is ...

    This book was a very enjoyable and entertaining read with the great character and storyline development that made me feel like I was sitting in the same room as the characters, watching their story unfold!

    Whisked Away was such a nice and enjoyable read.It is the second book in the Paradise Bay series and even if it could be read as a stand alone I suggest you to start from the first story because Melanie Summers did a great job creating this carrabean island and all these characters.I'm now off to get the third novel because I'm so curious to know what happens next.

    Insanely great, comedic antics abound, grouchy nit picky Pierce and sassy chef Emma clash on the islands of Paradise Bay! This is run for the bathroom to avoid any accidents funny so be warned!There aren't enough ways to describe how much I loved this story and everything about it! It's hilarious, warm, witty, romantic and totally snarky! My kind of book! Add to that my all time favorite author and I fell so hard and fast for this one. Emma has f...

    This was a cute, quick read with two feisty leads that led to a lot of great tension, humor, and drama. I haven't read any of the author's other books (all her series have overlap), but I was totally fine and any previous relationships that mattered were quickly and nicely explained. This novel can totally be enjoyed as a standalone.I really liked that there was a lot more to this book than just the fiery romance. Both Emma and Pierce were very f...

    Ms. Summers books are so fun to read. I love the humor in the books. I think it must be hard being the baby of the family or Emma, getting most of what you want, and then feeling like you owe your family. Of course Emma had high hopes of being a great chef at her familys resort island. I love all she had to go through to prove herself and help the family. Of course this is where she meets Pierce. I felt bad with the kind of parents he had growing...

    Why is it over??? WHY??? ❤❤❤❤❤I just loved this book. I laughed so much and when I wasnt laughing, I was chuckling. Pierce and Emma have quickly become one of my favorite couples. I love the way this author writes. Some books are slow to start or drag at some point but here... I didnt notice and I was half-way through. That is some great writing. It was great visiting paradise island again and catch up with the characters from The Honey...

    One of my all-time favorite lines from a book: "And there's a feisty edge to her that I'm drawn to like a Kardashian to a camera lens."

    Oh my giddy Aunt. I am so in love with these hilarious novels by Melanie Summers, she manages to keep you smiling and audibly laughing even through those teary pages. I need to read the third installment and find out where this amazing group of people and up. I received this book for free from Netgalley I'd return for my honest opinion. And in all honesty it was brilliant.

    This was a good read. Pierce is on the island so he can finish up the series of books that he has been writing. He meets Emma while staying there. Pierce end sup hurting his hand and Emma decides to help him with his book. Of course they fall for each other. They get into a bit of mess but in the end it all works out.

    Honestly, I preferred the first book in this series - though I still really liked this one. I just found Emma a bit young and selfish at times...which to be fair, felt very realistic...plus, no one is perfect. I really liked her dynamic with Pierce and his grumpy appearances in the beginning. I liked how everything came together at the end at will definitely read the third in this series!

    The second in the Crown Jewels spin-off of Paradise Bay. In The Honeymooner, we got to meet Harrison Banks, owner/operator of Paradise Bay resort. During the course of that, we also get to meet his sister, Emma, who is the MC of this book. Emma has completed culinary school and is returning to the Benevente Islands to take her place as head chef of one of the resort's illustrious restaurants. Emma receives a head chef position all right, but it t...

    Whisked Away is the second book in Melanie Summers trilogy, A Paradise Bay Romantic Comedy. I received this ARC from Netgalley, which I initially requested purely based on the cover and description. But was not disappointed, it was so cute!Pierce Davenport wrote one of the biggest fantasy series of all time ... well almost. He finished the first 3 books, and has taken the last two years writing the fourth and he has gotten no where. Under extreme...

    Another great book from Melanie Summers. The setting of the book is so appropriate for her name-Paradise Bay where its beautiful, warm, tropical, and feels like SUMMER all the time. This story is about Emma, Harrison's little sister. Emma was briefly mentioned in the Harrison's book-The Honeymooner.Emma is a recent graduate of culinary school in New York. Upon graduation, she moves back to Paradise Bay to start her future as a world-class chef. H...

    This can be read as a standalone although part of a series where each book focuses on a different character.Emma has just finished culinary school and heads back to the Caribbean to work as a chef at her family resort but winds up assigned to cook for Pierce Davenport, a properly stubborn but incredibly famous author who's suffering major writers block. They both don't lead with their best selves but a hungry iguana forces them to put their first...
