1) The author's heart shines through in this genuine romance with well-developed, interesting characters. A recommended read.
2) I have not read the earlier books but it did not take me long to feel as though I was in Hawaii with the lush descriptions of the island. The warmth and love Rob and Kulani's 'family' feel for each other is skillfully told though both the current story and backstory. That being said, there are several occasions when the author dropped a large info dump which broke up the flow of the story for me. However, the intricately draw characterisations of Danny, Zane, Kulani and Rob more than made up for those. Overall, I really enjoyed this is a story of revenge, love, denial, family ties, loss of innocence and developing maturity.

Danny’s a fourth-generation Big Islander from the wealthy Lucerno ranching family. He’s gorgeous--a mix of Portuguese male and Argentine passion, all dark-haired, smoldering sensuality. His family disowned him for being gay, and now he’s part of the Masterson-Mahikoa “lost boys” family.
When he meets the wealthy, sophisticated, sensuous Brazilian, Paolo Bastini, he’s swept off his feet into a glitzy Las Vegas lifestyle of money and luxury--the world he grew up in. But it takes Danny away from Hawai’i where his soul roams free and his family lives. He struggles as Paolo plays loosely with their partnership and thinks Danny is being “a baby” for wanting a monogamous relationship. And who is this past lover firmly wedged in Paolo’s heart?
Zane is severely deaf--finding new dance partners is hard. When he loses another one, Danny steps in to dance the tango competitions with him. Jealousy flares and things reach dangerous levels between Paolo and Danny. His adopted and birth family must bond together in a daring rescue of Danny from the depths of Brazil.
br>But he’s not completely out of danger. Now he’s fighting an attraction to the feminine Zane, who’s always annoyed him. Which man has his heart?
