Great Summer Read with Island Vibes!

I recently read Priscilla Oliver's Island Affair (which I loved!) and immediately jumped into Anchored Hearts! This second novel in her Keys series did not disappoint. It has the same Key West island vibes of the first, great Cuban food descriptions, and an off-the-charts romance!

This time around, we see Luis' younger sister, Anamaría, reunited with her high school boyfriend, Alejandro. After a brutal break-up where Anamaría decided to stay in the Keys to be with her family following her father's heart attack and Alejandro decided to follow his dreams of being a photographer around the world, these two are not happy to be in the same room. But a brutal leg fracture forces Alejandro back to the Keys and the jurisdiction of their meddling moms...

This is a great, light, summer/beach reach, especially for fans of second-chance romance! I really enjoyed the pacing of this book, and felt it moved neither too fast nor too slow. Learning more about each MC's respective careers (Anamaría is building a fitness social media empire and Alejandro is an award-wining photographer) was also a cherry on top.

I know Oliveras has said Enrique's book is a long way off, but I hope it's sooner rather than later!

5 stars - 9/10
