Hawaii Ever After (Burke Billionaire Romance #4) by Rachelle J. Christensen

Kindle Edition, 184 pages
Published April 7th 2021 by Peachwood Press 
A ballet dancer at the end of her career.

A handsome Hawaiian who chops coconuts for a living.

Their two worlds collide with a smoldering kiss, but is the chemistry enough to overlook their differences?

Gracie Cardulo has performed for the New York ballet for over a decade, but her body can’t keep up with the rigorous demands of dance anymore. She arrives on the isle of Kauai for her billionaire best friend’s wedding to consider new job options and ends up dancing with the best man, Pika Sepe. The entire island is filled with romance when she’s with the handsome Hawaiian, but can she truly be happy without dance?

Pika has always worked a blue-collar job and most of the time barely makes ends meet. When Gracie dances into his life, she inspires him to go after his dreams of taking tourists on island adventures. In between deep-sea fishing, sweet kisses, and hikes along the Na’ pali coast, Gracie and Pika each find something they were missing.

When Pika’s ex-girlfriend stirs up trouble, Pika and Gracie must dig deep to find out if their love is meant to be. Can they hold together when people keep trying to pull them apart? Will their love last beyond the beautiful island sunset, or fade into the deep waters of doubt?

♥This novel is Book #4 in the Burke Billionaire Romance Series and includes a bonus sneak peek of one of my books! Books can be read in any order.
My Review: 4.5 Stars
Sometimes a delightfully sweet romance set in a tropical location is just the vacation that is desperately needed, especially in today's world, and this one was much wanted today. 
Gracie is on the verge of her ballet career ending and becoming reacquainted with Pika in Kauai at their mutual friends wedding was exactly the spark required to set their common attraction ablaze. Although there was trouble some in paradise, this story was easy and satisfying. I loved the descriptions of The Garden Island and since I was fortunate enough to go there once several years ago, I could vividly picture (and even smell) things in my mind, and I loved every single minute of it.
While there is an instant love, Pika and Gracie are fantastic characters. It was so enjoyable to watch them work together to decorate their friends house, while discovering more about themselves and making some big life decisions. I would have loved more, but all in all, this was a great escape!
