Laguna Heights Book Tour & My Review

Disclosure; Cali Book Reviews received a copy of this book from Beck Valley Book Tours in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions are 100% my own!  

New Release…

Annie and Hank have created a perfect life in Laguna Beach but when a dark secret is revealed, will their marriage survive?

In high school, Annie Johns was the calm, supportive sidekick to the rest of the tumultuous female stars of the hit reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Today, she’s living the happy life as a mom that she predicted on the show long ago. There’s only one problem: the secret from her past that haunts her most nights, a secret that if revealed could ruin everything she shares with her husband, Hank, the man who saved her from the heartache.

***Laguna Heights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novella. And if you enjoy Annie and Hank’s story, please consider reading the rest of the Laguna Beach series.

My Thoughts

This is one of those books I read on a trip “down south” as my husband calls it, to visit my family in Southern Missouri. It took me just about 3 hours of the 5 1/2 hour trip to read this book, start to finish. I was absolutely intrigued with Annie’s story! I loved reading both about her present day life along with her life when she was in college!

Chris was a nutcase. From the beginning I felt off about him. His anger was not a good thing. His protectiveness, obsession, and controlling nature with Annie, just really made me feel sorry for her!

I loved Hank. He was a complete 180 from Chris and I love that Annie and him hit it off so quickly!

I thought the story was awesome. I enjoyed learning more about Madison’s best friend!

Laguna Nights (Laguna Beach Book 1)

Madison Alcott was back in her hometown, caring for her sick mom and working long hours at the best resort in Laguna Beach. She never imagined she’d return to the place where she became famous on the hit reality TV show Laguna Nights, and the place where she was humiliated on national television. Fortunately, the past had stayed tucked away until her old high school boyfriend appeared in the lobby.

Josh Welsh was a superstar by age eighteen, the bad boy break-out star of Laguna Nights. Since then, his star had lost its shine and he barely was holding onto his Hollywood status. When he was asked to host a new reality travel show, he jumped at the chance. The only problem was the first episode was shooting in Laguna Beach. Of all the reasons Josh didn’t want to return home, he hadn’t even imagined the worst scenario: running into Madison “Holly” Alcott.

Josh’s connection to Madison was still as strong as her anger at his betrayal. When the new reality series forces them together, they must face Laguna Nights past and present, and navigate a journey where nothing is as it seems.
