[Review Tour] Laguna Heights (Laguna Beach book 2) by Karia Rouda

New Release….

Annie and Hank have created a perfect life in Laguna Beach but when a dark secret is revealed, will their marriage survive?

In high school, Annie Johns was the calm, supportive sidekick to the rest of the tumultuous female stars of the hit reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Today, she’s living the happy life as a mom that she predicted on the show long ago. There’s only one problem: the secret from her past that haunts her most nights, a secret that if revealed could ruin everything she shares with her husband, Hank, the man who saved her from the heartache.

***Laguna Heights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novella. And if you enjoy Annie and Hank’s story, please consider reading the rest of the Laguna Beach series.

Laguna Nights (Laguna Beach Book 1) my review

Madison Alcott was back in her hometown, caring for her sick mom and working long hours at the best resort in Laguna Beach. She never imagined she’d return to the place where she became famous on the hit reality TV show Laguna Nights, and the place where she was humiliated on national television. Fortunately, the past had stayed tucked away until her old high school boyfriend appeared in the lobby.Josh Welsh was a superstar by age eighteen, the bad boy break-out star of Laguna Nights. Since then, his star had lost its shine and he barely was holding onto his Hollywood status. When he was asked to host a new reality travel show, he jumped at the chance. The only problem was the first episode was shooting in Laguna Beach. Of all the reasons Josh didn’t want to return home, he hadn’t even imagined the worst scenario: running into Madison “Holly” Alcott.Josh’s connection to Madison was still as strong as her anger at his betrayal. When the new reality series forces them together, they must face Laguna Nights past and present, and navigate a journey where nothing is as it seems.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.


I just loved book one in the series Laguna Nights, and in that we meet Annie – she came across being such a sweet, nice girl that when I started this book I wasn’t expecting her story to be how it was.
This plays out in the present where she is married to Hank and has children. and also 10 years ago when she had finished with high school and the tv series and was now at Uni. She is used to being recognised and when she meets Chris it is no different, Their relationship progresses very, very quickly and actually from the first moment we meet him I instantly thought he was bad news.
And boy was I right!
I don’t want to spoil the story but sweet Annie went through such a horrendous time with Chris and it became clear that he was in fact a stalker. When she finally managed to break free from him she meets Hank. He helps her deal with the Chris situation,  but there was a secret she was even keeping from Hank.
I felt the ending was a little rushed, but it was more an epilogue of points that happened after the finally confrontation with Chris -**(I just re-read the last chapter and I guess it was the best way to play it out or else Kaira could have gone on and on 🙂 (in a good way!)**
This was an entirely different story from book one and I absolutely loved the fact that I wasn’t expecting this to be how Annie’s story played out. It had me hooked from the very beginning and I read it in a few hours as I just couldn’t put it down.
5 stars!
