Now a Lifetime movie, Jane Porter's beloved novel follows a divorced single mom who finds an unexpected, forbidden romance with a much younger man while on vacation in Hawaii.

He got the second home and the Porsche. She got the kids and a broken heart. Now Jackie, post-divorce and heading toward the big four-oh, is on vacation in sunny and staring down her upcoming birthday-alone. But not for long. She's soon falling for Kai, her gorgeous, much younger surf instructor, and the wild passionate fling they have becomes the biggest surprise of Jackie's life.

Back home in Seattle, Jackie has to struggle with single parenthood...and memories of Kai. He hasn't forgotten her. Yet thousands of miles of ocean-not to mention an age difference that feels even wider-separate them. And, of course, her friends disapprove. When a choice must be made, can she, will she risk everything for her chance at happiness?

    Jackie is recently divorced and alone on vacation in Hawaii for her 40th birthday. Kai is a young surf instructor who offers to give Jackie a surf lesson. Which leads to a budding relationship. Jackie's friends aren't happy about the relationship and try to set her up with other men. These two have an amazing connection from the start. I loved this book and it's the first I read by Porter and is also why I read all of them now.
