Review: Lana (A Novella) by R.K. Lilley

Lana has been in love with Akira for as long as she can remember.  Akira may have viewed her as his little sister, but even that didn't deter her feelings.  Their one night together on her 18th birthday may have made things even worse when after seducing Akira, Lana realizes that their love affair is one sided.  Heartbroken and humiliated, Lana flees her home in Hawaii and buries herself in school, and then the family business.

Eight years later, Lana is forced back to Hawaii where her plans are limited to business only.  When she is reunited with Akira, her plans are shot to hell.
~My Review~

We met Lana in the Up in the Air series, when Lana helps Bianca after she is tag teamed in the bathroom at the charity event.  We know that Lana is from originally from Hawaii, and holds a love for Akira.  This book is their full story in detail, and it's a fun little read.

This novella is a fun read, and it tells the story of Lana and Akira, both when Lana was just 18, and then 8 years later when she returns to Maui.  She insists that she is going to keep the trip focused on just work, but she honestly gets about zero work done in the entire novella.

There is really not a lot of conflict in the book, other than the fact that she slept with Akira when she was 18, realized that she was the only person with feelings, and then left.  They do need to spend time resolving their feelings and trusting one another again, however.  And it's so much fun to read.

Lana has loved Akira forever, and it's so much fun to see that he has apparently harbored a love for Lana for just as long.  Their chemistry is hot hot hot and the feelings they have for each other, as well as their love adds great depth to the story.  It was great to see them come together and finally get their Happily Ever After.

The book is short, only 100 pages, but there's a lot going on in a little time, so you still get a great story.  It's a fast read, and very enjoyable!

We do get a glimpse of Bianca, James, and Stephan, and if you haven't finished reading the Up in the Air Series, you'll want to finish that first so that you don't ruin any surprises!.
