Sought-after social media influencer Sara Vance, in recovery for a serious health disorder, is coming into her own, with a potential career expansion on the horizon. Despite the good news, her successful siblings (and their perfect spouses) have a way of making her feel like the odd one out. So, when her unreliable boyfriend is a no-show for a Florida family vacation, Sara recruits Luis Navarro—a gorgeous firefighter paramedic and dive captain willing to play the part of her smitten fiancé . . .
Luis’s big Cuban familia has been in Key West for generations, and his quiet strength feeds off the island’s laidback style. Though guarded after a deep betrayal, he’ll always help someone in need—especially a spunky beauty with a surprising knowledge of Spanish curse words. Soon, he and Sara have memorized their “how we met” story and are immersed in family dinners, bike tours, private snorkeling trips . . . sharing secrets, and slow, melting kisses. But when it’s time for Sara to return home, will their island romance last or fade with the stunning sunset?
Review by Nancy
I have to say that I really loved this story by Priscilla Oliveras! My best friend in college had a big, loud Cuban family, so I can totally relate to the family dynamics in the book. Sara was a strong, but silent member of her family. She never felt like she truly belonged because she wasn’t a physician like her parents or her sister. When she propositions Luis to be her boyfriend for the week she doesn’t expect it to develop into anything. Luis cannot deny that he’s attracted to Sara. He’s so patient with her and very encouraging. Although there were problems in both families, Sara and Luis were great for each other! Luis encouraged Sara to settle things with her sister and Sara told Luis the same regarding his younger brother. Oliveras made this a slow burn romance that brought the steamy factor at the appropriate moments. If you like Jill Shalvis, you will love Priscella Oliveras! Island Affair was a fabulous story and a perfect beach read! 5 stars
