[Tour & Review] Laguna Lights, (Laguna Beach Book 3) by Kaira Rouda

New Release….
Welcome back to Laguna Beach…

Laura Kinkaid’s glamorous Hollywood life is falling apart. After years of reality television stardom beginning in high school on Laguna Nights, her career and relationship with her long-term boyfriend Scott are fizzling out.

Laura decides to go home to Laguna Beach for the weekend to attend a baby shower for her high school friend. That decision – and a car accident – will lead her to a new future, if she’s ready to take a chance at love.

Paul Dorn’s former life in New York City is far behind him and he’s working in a popular Laguna Beach surf shop when fate brings the most beautiful woman he’s ever met into his life. The attraction is instant and he has an overwhelming desire to protect her. While Paul’s retail sales career is a short-term job for market research purposes, his focus on Laura is long-term.

Will Laura allow a handsome stranger to help her create a future unlike her past, or will the bright lights of Hollywood pull her back to LA?

***Laguna Lights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone read. And if you enjoy Laura and Paul’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.

Laguna Heights (Laguna Beach Book 2) my review

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.

My Review

Welcome back to Laguna! This is book three in the Laguna Beach Series, and I was intrigued to see it was going to focus on Laura.
Now let me say Laura hasn’t been painted in the best of light in the previous books, coming across as a first class bitch, so I couldn’t wait to see how Kaira was going to make her into a likeable character.
Laura has broken up with Scott her long term on/off boyfriend from the show they did in high school, and whilst she is upset she isn’t really all that surprised as things weren’t great between then lately. On her way home from LA to Laguna she get in a accident in her car, Paul Dorn happens to see it happen – right outside the store he works – and goes to her aid. She definitely wasn’t expecting a connection with someone so soon after Scott but she undeniably attracted to him and cant wait to see him again.
Paul works at the Surf Shack and all is not what it appears about him – he left his high flying job in New York to work in a Surf shop! There is more to him that meets they eye in a great way, but you will just have to read it to find out more.
As for Laura, I was glad that my inital thoughts of her were changed as this book progressed – she began to acknowledge her past behaviours and I actually felt sorry for her having to make herself into that person to think she would get somewhere.
A great addition to the series and for all this can be read as a stand alone I do highly recommend you read the the whole series.

    Sounds like Laura had a lot of work to do to turn herself around.
