Let the fairytale come alive…

Turquoise blue waters. Sandy white beaches. Mojitos…

Film location scout Kenzie Cole has found herself in paradise. And working in the Caribbean for a week is just what she needs to escape the long line of exes in her closet.

Though the last thing she expects is to be picked up at the resort bar by a disgraced former Prince!

Luckily for Kenzie, exile is suiting the man formerly known as Prince Fredrik very well. And it’s not long before his rugged, pirate charm is proving hard to resist.

But Rik’s been spending his time in paradise exorcising demons of his own and he has danger written all over him. If Kenzie was sensible she’d run a mile instead of lose herself to her lust – although, they do say that sometimes you have to get lost before you can be found….

Absolutely loved the setting of this book. A remote Caribbean archipelago, with one of the islands surround by an ancient folk story based on reality. It was reading the folk story in the prologue that caught my interest immediately.  Add in, exotic beaches, a man that looks like a pirate, and some mojitos, and you have a lethal combination for a brilliant book. 

Kenzie is a location scout for a film company, and is out in Caribbean looking for the perfect location for a new film, She needs beautiful bays and lagoons, forests and ruins, and room to put a pirate ship. However the locals on the island aren't being particularly helpful or friendly, and so we meet her drowning her sorrows at the bar.

Also at the bar that night is Rik. He was mentioned during Waking Up in Vegas, so if you have read that, you will be aware of his real background. Otherwise, you will learn as the book goes on, that there is a lot more to Rik, than the reasonably well off beach bum than meets the eye. 

Rik is gorgeous, has bad boy pirate-esque looks to him, and offers to help Kenzie with her location scouting, by getting her an audience with the mayor. With Rik's help they get permission to take a boat to look at the "cursed" island of Tortuga.  It isn't long before human nature and a sizzling connection make themselves known. 

The Trouble with Mojitos, shows us how you can find your hearts desire, even if you have had multiple setbacks, and that there is always a plan B to life. Both fabulously upbeat messages to get from a book. 

This is a warm hearted, feel good romance, that if you are reading Romy Sommer's books in order, that leaves you wanting to know what happens next. Fabulous second book in the Westerwald trilogy.
