Some Kind of Wonderful by Sarah Morgan

Her whole life, Puffin Islander Brittany Forrest has dreamed of adventure. And at the age of eighteen, she thought she’d found it in bad boy Zachary Flynn. But after just ten tempestuous, smouldering days, their whirlwind marriage went up in smoke, and Brittany resolved to put him out of her mind forever. 

Zach knows he let Brittany down, but being back on Puffin Island and seeing Brittany again stirs up long-buried emotions. This daredevil pilot has never felt worthy of her, yet he can’t stay away—even when he knows the chemistry between them will only complicate his life.

As long, hot summer days on the beach dissolve into sultry, starry nights, Brittany and Zach find that the sparks between them are more powerful than ever. Could it be that the second time around, their dreams of a happy-ever-after will finally come true?

Earlier this year I read First Time in Forever which is the first book in the Puffin Island series by Sarah Morgan and I have been eagerly awaiting the release of book two Some Kind of Wonderful and having just finished it I am delighted to say it is another superb read.

Brittany had her heart broken back on Puffin Island 10 years ago by bad boy Zach after he walked out on her after their wedding day, she has avoided spending time back on the Island and has made an exciting and successful life for herself but after she injures herself on her recent job she needs time to recover and so she plans to return to Puffin Island but before she even arrives on the Island she discovers that Zach has returned but with the years that have past will the pair of them have moved on or will they still hold a torch for each other?

This is another promising series by Sarah Morgan, Some Kind of Wonderful is an addictive romantic read that revisits Puffin Island and the loveable characters that were in the first book which I loved as it was great to see what has been happening to the characters we fell in love with first time around. It soon becomes apparent not a lot has changed with the locals they are still protective of their islanders and still have a way of circulating the village gossip quicker than social media! Brittany who is our heroine in this book is best friends with Emily and it is easy to see why the girls have such a strong bond as like Emily Brittany is a caring, loyal and friendly character who it is impossible not to like, although I felt sorry for her having been left by Zach in such a cowardly way she wasn’t one to wallow she was a strong and determined character.

Our bit of testosterone in this book comes in the form of bad boy Zach who only seems to be good at flying, sex, and screwing up oh and did I mention ….. sex! Zach is one of these characters that you know you should hate but you know that there is a heart in there somewhere and there is always something appealing about finding a bad boys good side!

Yes ok the storyline was predictable but I enjoyed the journey that Sarah Morgan takes us on to unravel what has happened in Zach’s past and to watch Brittany try and break those barriers he has built up. The book is an entertaining, light, romantic read that also touches on some serious and emotive topics too.

First Time in Forever is still my favourite but this was still a superb read and will not disappoint those readers who loved the first book. I cannot wait to read Christmas Ever After next to catch up with the characters again and get to know Sky more although I already have my arrow waiting to shoot Richard in the bum!
