    1. A Joyfully Jay review. 4.5 starsDid I say this book was different? This is not a story of two wounded twenty-year-old white kids struggling to engage the world and achieve their HEA. Not that there’s anything wrong with that dynamic, but let’s face it, we have lots of those, and it does wear a bit thin after a while, at least for me.Here, the two MCs are Polynesian, one approaching his first Saturn return just before thirty, and the other almost forty. The story itself is “Mix-Plate” Pol [...]

    2. 5 Heart Review by KimberleyI can’t come up with enough words to describe how much I enjoyed this book! Meg Amour did a fantastic job of bringing these wonderful characters, in addition to the beauty of the Hawaiian islands and its people, to life. I loved her writing style and Matt and Rach’s dialect had that perfect ‘touch of the Kiwi’ that further endeared me to them. The multicultural aspect of the book was another thing that drew me in. I’ve often said that this genre needs more et [...]

    3. I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked ReadsI really, really enjoyed this story of two men who come to terms with their pasts and accept their futures. It is sweet, hot, sexy and full of Hawaiian and Maori links and legends. The characters were all appealing, there was little angst, just a story that needed telling. Rach played an important side role, and helped set the scene early on in particular. Mikey too played a pivotal part in telling the story. I recommend it t [...]

    4. Received book for an honest review. Original Review on paranormallovefeaturesspoMatt Quintal is a painter from New Zeeland, a mystic by nature and in search of something he had forgot he needed. He realizes that he had lost his way and the world is breaking his spirit after one too many meaningless one-night stands in L.A. Luckily his sister calls and he runs to Hawaii, the break he needed.His attraction to pilot Beau Toyama is instant and, we find out later on, most likely foretold by Beau's de [...]

    5. Sometimes, writing a book review is harder than I care to admit. Usually that is the case for stories I didn’t like, that are full with mistakes (editorial or otherwise), or that just ‘didn’t do it’ for me. In those cases, I want to be honest about my feelings but I still want to honour the fact that someone made the effort to put pen to paper to write down the musings in their head. Where it is difficult to write, it is even more difficult to get your story published and out to the publ [...]

    6. Oh my god I don't know where to start. I might just have to start with the emotional stuff with this book, how it made me feel. I've said so before but I'll say it again when I walk away from reading a book to me a great book is one that makes me feel. The feelings can be very different and even utter outrage and vile loathing but I feel something towards someone or something. I'll quote Renee Zellweger in Jerry McGuire "You had me at hello" and that is what Meg Amor had me with Matt. She made s [...]

    7. There are so many things I loved about this story that I don't know where to startMaybe I can begin by telling you what is this all about? Take Beau, a “mixed plate” Hawaiian/Japanese/Tahitian man, who has lost his mother, doesn't go well with his dad and has a deep dark secret buried inside.And Mattie, who comes from New Zealand with mixed culture both from Maori and Norfolk Islands. He lives in the US but senses that something is missing in his life. He decides to come and see his sister i [...]

    9. Wounderful sweet story that cheered me up and glad I took the time to read this. I like the common themes intertwined in the story certain spiritual symbols is important t o him, and connection to his mother in various waysAlso I like the painter and pilot, (not sure which is it is Beau or Matt?) The healing aspect of themselves one chracter has gone through a forgetten childhood trauma theme is intersting scared at first and uncovers to find out the details of the truma (made me cry) Mikey his [...]

    10. This is one of those personality pairings I'm enjoying so much that I don't even want to finish the book before leaving a review. Beau's quiet calm and centredness versus Matt's slightly obstreperous malaise and yet they can't keep their eyes or thoughts from one another. The heat between them racks up with each chapter as they find each other's highlights, blind spots and achilles heels.The relationship alone is red hot, let alone the hot scenes! And it's all set in a beautifully described sett [...]

    11. A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words reviewRating: 4.25 stars out of 5For the full review, visit wp/p220KL-ayoFrom that review: " First of all, let me say that if you can embrace or accept the possibility of the element of mysticism, that your ancestors in other planes of existence are looking after you, that Astrology is real as is the ability to chart patterns in your life, then you will dive into this story with all your heart. Hawaiian Lei with its characters Matt and Beau and their mixed he [...]

    12. Meg Amor brought me back home to Hawaii. Her rich and descriptive story touch me down to my heart and soul. Matt and Beau were so genuine and deep. I loved that she didn't just stop at the HEA when they professed their love, as many romance novels do, but had them exorcise their demons so that they could have the deep love that they both deserved. I loved Matt's sister Rach and Beau's ex-wife/best friend Mikey. Both women's love and respect for their love one's was touching and poignant. The twi [...]

    13. This story is told in first person, present tense, something I struggle with unless done extremely well. There's plenty of explicit sex, plenty of lube, cock sucking, and arse licking most of which are preceded by a fight. Oh and these men aren't afraid to show their emotions so there's plenty of crying too. Some of the 'kiwi-isms' made me smile, others made me cringe. I totally believe in the spirit world, but the spiritual side to the story was under overwhelming, for me. Asking the spirits fo [...]

    14. I was fine until about page 67 and had a WTF moment. Throw in plot devices I am not sure why they are needed and It makes we want to call out the editor. think It needed some tightening up and someone should have asked the author "Why?"
