“Surrender and just love.”

Jen Quintal has her hands full running the Bounty’s Retreat Hotel, while her very pregnant sister Kate, takes some much needed maternity leave. In walks Tyler Wright, the new temporary replacement for Kate, and Jen cannot stop drooling… After all, it has been so long since she has had sex, she worries they may have changed it!

Jen’s best friend, roommate and the hotel’s chef, Felix, has a confession to make. Playing it safe hasn’t worked so far… and to his horror, she thinks he is gay! -Which just isn’t the case.

“I’m sick of being the good guy and waiting for you to open your eyes, Jen.”

When Felix confesses his feelings to Jen, she is thrown into a whirlwind of emotions and she questions what love really is. She doesn’t want to leave him in the lurch, and she certainly doesn’t want to lead him on…

Quintal’s Quandary, by Nadine Christian, is a novel about finding love, where you least suspect it. Thrown in is some hotel drama, and a distracting male Adonis who flusters the heck out of Jen. Quintal’s Quandary is a winner! 🙂

I enjoyed the heck outta this book. I love Nadine Christian’s island romances for their humor, in addition to the feel good romance. The heroine, Jen, is a “walking, talking tornado!” She is someone who is easy to love as a character, and I think many women could relate to her.

This novel didn’t have the same suspenseful element that some of her other books have, which I did miss because I’ve come to expect it since I’ve read so many books by Nadine Christian and I appreciate her writing style. However, if you are looking for a romantic, happily ever after, then this book should be in your hands!

5 Stars!

***I was given a copy of Quintal’s Quandary by the Author, in exchange for a thoughtful, fair, and honest book review.
