#Review: 12 Hours in Paradise by Kathryn Berla | #Sweet #Love #YoungRomance @BerlaKathryn @XpressoTours

12 Hours in Paradise
Kathryn Berla
Young Adult, Romance

Twelve hours, thirty-six questions, and a chance to fall in love... It's the last day of Dorothy Patmont's family vacation. Soon, she must head back to Reno, where all that waits for her is the cold and the snow. To top it all off, her brother, Chester, acted like a little jerk and ate one too many cookies from the sample jar in the cookie store. But his antics have an unexpected benefit-attracting the attention of an intriguing boy who could change her life forever. Treats can be sweet, but love is sweeter still... 

Arash Atkinson, fluent in four languages and an adventurous soul, is in Waikiki for a high school band competition. When he meets Dorothy, he realizes their time together is limited. "Come out and play," he texts her. A night of romantic adventure ensues, and Arash discovers an app that claims it can make people fall in love after answering thirty-six questions in each other's presence. With each question asked, their stories and feelings continue to unfold. But with every hour that passes they're more at risk of being found out-Dorothy, by her parents, and Arash by his school chaperone. And then Arash gets the dreaded phone call-he has been discovered missing from his room, and must return immediately. 

Can they finish the questions before facing their consequences? When time is running out, true love cannot wait. What Arash and Dorothy have is beyond special, something that comes along once in a lifetime, and begins with Twelve Hours In Paradise...but can it survive the trials of the real world?

DISCLAIMER: I received an e-ARC of this book (via XpressoBookTours) in exchange for honest review. Also, this review contains an Amazon Associates link. If you choose to purchase this book using my link, I will receive a small commission. :)

What starts off as a good deed becomes a kindled new friendship. For me, there is nothing quite like a sweet budding romance. A CLEAN romance for that matter. 

Dorothy is on vacation in Honolulu, Hawaii, with her family. What better way to meet new people than to have your younger brother embarrass the crap out of you in public. Honestly, I would have felt the same way if my brothers began to say things about me to HOT strangers. 

I want to just pause for a moment and talk about Arash. He's literally perfect. He speaks for languages, has a damn-sexy accent (as confused as it might be) and wears glasses because he is "blind as a bat". *SIGHS* Honestly, that is my ind of guy. Sweet and simple.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
I loved every second of this book. I was able to read it in one sitting and it seemed to fly by. I was worried the book would end with the final moments of the 12 Hours in Paradise, but it went a little further and made my heart flutter. I could imagine a the characters still together in ten years. Have you ever fallen in love with 'the one' after only knowing them for a a few hours? I want it to happen to me. What about you?
