About the book:
'Don't wait for the storm to pass; learn to dance in the rain…'
Laura has been married to the man of her dreams for seven months. But a week before the wedding, Matthew made a terrible mistake. Escaping the humiliation that is now her marriage, Laura is whisked off to Florida's Key West by her best friend Marty.
A carefree holiday full of cocktails and fun, surrounded by gorgeous, tanned men, is exactly what the doctor ordered. Distraction comes in the form of sexy Cuban scuba diver Leo. Laura's instant attraction to him knocks her flying, and she falls hard.
As the end of the holiday approaches, Laura doesn't want to go home. Is it time to face the music? Or is there more to Key West than a holiday romance?
Paige Toon is BACK! Woohoo! With another addictive novel after a year long wait! The Longest Holiday felt like reading Paige Toon for the first time! I absolutely loved it!
Main character in The Longest Holiday is Laura. She played a small part in Chasing Daisy as former girlfriend to Formula 1 driver Will Trust! :(
Laura is one of the characters in Paige Toons world whose story I;ve been dying to read as there have been so many questions floating around in my head main ones were "was Will really going to leave Laura for Daisy?" & "Did Laura know about Daisy?" I was so glad these questions were answered as I'm sure loads of people are although I did feel a teensy bit sorry for Will! I thought he was not gonna leave her and he was. Plus Laura knew something was up with him and Daisy from the way he looked at her! (I wish Daisy knew - although THANK YOU Paige Toon for throwing in Daisy and Luis are engaged Woop woop!!) There was another connection to this novel as well! It was Matthew knew Alice and Lukas from One Perfect Summer.
I was so engrossed in it The Longest Holiday! I love getting that feeling with Paige's novels! It makes me love reading!
Laura doesn't have any luck men until she meets Leo! Near the end of the book I was slightly panicing that this was gonna be another Johnny Be Good but it wasn't. I don't know what I would have done..
Laura takes a holiday after finding out her husband is fathering another woman's child after a drunken one night stand one night on his stag do.. :-/ So being persuaded by her best-friend Marty she goes along with her friend to Bridget!
After a few days of staying Laura finds Leo! Gorgeous, sexy, foreign LEO! Before even a romance can begin all holidays must come to an end so at the airport Laura decides not to go home and instead bumps into Jorge who is bringing his nephew home and offers Laura a lift... and a place to stay! ;)
Slowly Laura starts falling for Leo.. but is it entirely one sided?
I loved Jorge, I thought he was so much fun to read about! Also loved Marty (Sometimes), Bridget and also Leo's sister-in-law!
Leo and Laura may even be one of face couples! :D I'm so going to read this book again... LIKE NOW!
Amazing, Flirty, Sunny and HOT are just a few of the words I'd use to describe this book! :D
It's a MUST READ! :)
