    The Pilot and the Wedding Planner!

    This was such a delightful tale. The charming page-turning plot was filled with overcoming heartache and wrongdoing, a bit of hilarity, and finding love. Moreover, Charlotte (a wedding planner) and Dawson (a pilot), the protagonists were made for each other and gushed with chemistry. Furthermore, I loved the vivid details the author provided, especially the figurative language such as, “His nerves rattled away like ice cubes in a glass.” All in all, I enjoyed reading the captivating narrative.

    Great read and you get to live in Hawaii while you live it….

    THE ISLAND HOUSE is a standalone story with a happy ending. There are no sexy scenes or inappropriate language. It is set in Hawaii and you can almost hear the waves hitting the shore or the sounds of helicopter blades. This is a great story of betrayal, disappointment, family, and finding ones self only to discover you have found someone else as well.Charlotte arrived on the island only to discover a man under her sink. This moment will transform her life for the better. She is fleeing South Carolina. Her husband of 11 years tells her he wants a divorce and is then married 11 days after the divorce is final. She is crushed. Charlotte knew her life was not where she wanted to be. She had a very busy glamours life. Her husband was a real estate on Carter’ Cove where they live a very social life. They both worked, he was a very big real estate agent on the cove and she was an event planner. They worked hard and then partied all week-end. She was not real happy but she thought they were ok.So, as soon as she could sell her house, finish up at work, pack and sell everything else, she left for Hawaii not telling anyone where she was going. All their friends sided with her ex and he was seen everywhere with his new wife. So she bought her house unseen and had plans to fix it up if it needed it. Finding a man under her sink just let her know how much she needed to do.Dawson is a retired Air Force pilot living the easy life of the beach. He has always flown solo and likes it that way. Until today. He had been living in the house of his friends and when not working he was trying to fix it up a bit. He never knew it sold. He really had no place else to go so he begged her to let him stay for a couple of weeks until he could find something else. She agreed and he agreed to help her with free labor and muscle when he was not flying tours around the island. He was very attracted to her but he could tell something was off.This is a great story of learning to let go and move on. To love again and forgive. It is just a great story and I really enjoyed it. I definitely recommend it. A great read.I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 2/22/2021

    Got Better

    I didn’t like this novel very much in the beginning. It had too many awkward sentences that I had to stop and read again and again to try to figure out what they meant. But this cleared up after a couple of chapters. The longer I read, the better the story got. It had a few grammatical errors but turned out to be an enjoyable read. I gave it 4.5 stars, which rounded up to a five.

    New Beginnings

    You can’t find love until you let go of the past. This is about finding love that you didn’t know you needed. Sometimes the perfect person shows up when you least expect it.I downloaded the next book in the series and can’t wait to read it.

    Short and enjoyable

    This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I appreciated the pace, no prolonged drama, foul language, or detailed description of intercourse as other authors have done. And the ending was ….read it to find out. Looking forward to reading Book 2.

    Be true to your real feelings.

    This is a very nice story about love finding it’s way into the “messed up” lives of two great characters. I knew how the story would end but, the journey to get there was exciting and I couldn’t put the book down.

    Second chances are sweeter on an island

    I throughly enjoyed this story of a second chance for Charlotte and Dawson. The clean romance kept me engaged with enough slow simmer and deep love. I felt as if the sand was between my toes with the breeze caressing my face. Wonderful and realistic characters that drew me in.

    I love these two characters. The were real and not smarmy as often happens in these types of books. I also enjoyed (spoiler alert) the fact that it was so romantic without all the usual overt sex scenes. My only complaint is that the book was too #/$&+* short!!!

    Healing hearts

    Another wonderful book by Johnson. Charlotte and Dawson become so real that you find yourself routing for them in spite of all of the drama. For some reason this will not allow me to type the authors first name.

    The Island House (Getaway Bay Romance Book 1)

    To begin with…I really really enjoyed this story.Fresh from a devastating divorce, Charlotte leaves all she knows for a beat up little house in Hawaii. Upon arrival she discovers Dawsen, basically squatting there. Both have serious family and love baggage, but together they blossom. The book shifts back and forth from Dawsen to Charlotte, digging deep into their feelings, without getting mushy and stupid. A HEA entails after some stuff ‘goes down’.I do wish more would have been discussed about her sister Wilma and why they don’t get along. I have a feeling her character would have added some nasty snark and perspective on her character. And Dawsen’s brother…a discussion was needed there.I also would have LOVED to see Hunter discover he couldnt break Charlotte no matter how dispicable he was.All that being said…I did love the book.

    Loved this novel!

    This is my first time reading Elana Johnson and I’m hooked. I could never be a writer, I’m just not good at putting my thoughts into words. So even if my words don’t convince you to read this book, you really should take a chance and read it. I promise you won’t be disappointed. I loved that I could read this in one sitting. It wasn’t so short that I felt like I was reading a shortened version of a really good book, but it wasn’t so long that it felt like everything was being over explained. This is a love story. It isn’t all sicky sweet nor is it all just about the bedroom. In fact the lack of sex is another thing I love about it. It’s refreshing to find an author that doesn’t rely on their characters sex life to sell a book. She wrote a really good and believable story. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

They just forgot to tell him when he needed a place to stay that together put the house up for sale. This is how Charlotte and Dawson met.

    Can there be a happy ending for two broken sou!s?

    Charlotte has been dumped by her husband, all her friends, and isn’t talking to her family. Running away to start a new life in Hawaii seems like a good idea. But what she finds, is a squatter in the house she bought from just an email picture. Sure, he is good looking, but why is he living in her house? Dawson has his own demons. He hasn’t seen his family in ten years. Having a younger brother steal the girl he loved has left him bitter and alone. With so much heart damage, they may never find healing and a happily ever after.

    This was such a sweet story about starting over

    This was such a sweet story about starting over when the life you knew is no longer yours. Both Charlotte and Dawson have been badly burned by past relationships and neither is looking for something new right now. But a chance meeting in Charlotte’s new home opens up possibilities they weren’t expecting. I really enjoyed watching this pair as they healed from those old open wounds and learned to trust one another and themselves. Remember, no matter where you go, there you are. You may be able to run from your life and problems for a time, but you can’t hide from yourself forever.

    Manipulation wrecks

    There’s nothing more harmful than the realization that the person who promised to love, honor, and cherish you has not kept their word. It makes one doubt their own ability to discern truth, to trust ones own judgement, and to rely upon their decisions.But when one who desperately cares for you comes into your atmosphere, that desperation begins a transformation. Trust is established, ability stabilizes, and decisions are sound. Because love, true love, really does cover all.Buy the book. Get the warm fuzzies.

    Wonderful Beach Love Story

    I really enjoyed this story about Charlotte and Dawson. It was a change from the cowboy western love stories Elana usually writes but was very realistic…. and who wouldn’t want to live in Hawaii and have a beautiful bay and water right outside your door??? I’ve never been disappointed in any of her stories and this one was wonderful. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the “Getaway Bay Resort” series. Hat’s Off to Elana. She writes with such a passionate heart.

    Great

    When Charlotte ‘s husband said he wanted a divorce because he met someone else Charlotte finished her jobs , sold her house and moved from South Carolina to Hawaii. Her husband remarried seven days after the divorce was final. She bought a fixer upper house so she could fix it up like she wanted. Upon arriving at the house she found Dawson under her kitchen sink trying to fix it. He hadn’t shut off the water valve and wound up spraying Charlotte and the kitchen with water. The owners were friends that lived off the Island. He was suppose to look after the place when he was working as a pilot who took people on helicopter tours. When they met they had an instant attraction. Dawson didn’t know the owners had sold the house. Being it was empty and he wanted to get away from his ex girlfriend he moved into the house. Charlotte didn’t have a job but she had a job interview with a wedding planner. After the interview she hadn’t heard anything from them so she called and had a second interview. After the second interview she got the job. She didn’t want to date Dawson but they did start to date. One day she saw her ex and his new wife on the Lavern island but they didn’t see her. She wasn’t over her ex yet and got upset. She called Dawson but he couldn’t answer because he was flying so, she called his work. When he called her back she was crying and broke up with him. She left town for a week and he flew home to see his family for Christmas. She eventually realized that she loved Dawnson and they got back together. He loved her and eventually they got married.

    Great charac ters

    For me, how ever, the loca tion was diffi cult to visua lize. “Geta way Bay” does not sound like the name of a place that would be in Hawaii.

    Very good story

    Ms. Johnson aka Ms. Blanton is an extraordinary writer! This one is no exception. She showed the feelings of Charlotte trying to recover from her divorce as well as the feelings of Dawson as a confirmed bachelor, more or less. There were also the feelings of their families, both pro and con. This is definitely a good read!

    Start of a series

    Recently divorced, Charlotte Madsen purchases a run-down house in Getaway Bay across the country from her previous hometown. Upon arrival she is met by former Air Force pilot Dawson Dane who has been living in the house she bought. He agrees to help her fix up the house, but ends up moving out when he starts to fall for her. The plot involves issues of trust, self-esteem, and family estrangements. An uplifting story for this first book in the series.

    Sweet love story

    This love story was sad and sweet. I loved the way Elana Johnson melded the two. A little bit of heartache, but a whole lot of love. Love wins.

    Great story

    I really enjoyed read the story of Charlotte and Dawson. It was a page turner. I usually read a few pages a night but I could not put the book down. I read it in almost 1 night.

    How a house brought two people together

    I had a feeling at the beginning of this story that true love was going to prevail. It was definitely not easy. Charlotte and Dawson both had baggage, and their relationship was frequently difficult. The story about their past and their careers helped everything make sense. People in their lives, both in the past and the present, made everything seem very real. In the end there were many things to celebrate, including friends and family, but most importantly the happy couple.

    Charlotte and Dawson

    Charlotte has just moved in and has decided that there would be no more romance, sex, etc. If of course she were to find someone, maybe it could as a result of finding Dawson under the kitchen sink. After all that is how it was supposed to go? Right? Charlotte doesn’t even get to know all of the players who are on this trip with her. You’re going to love this book by Elena Johnson as it sets a pace for you to follow along.

    A Life Changing Surprise

    Charlotte was running away from devastating divorce. A continent and an ocean away in a house she’d bought sight unseen, she found a man’s legs sticking out from under her kitchen sink, followed by being soaked by spraying water from the pipe he had loosened. He was well muscled, handsome and most unwanted. The tension, the ups and downs, the running away, were all well written and kept me turning pages even though I knew I’d find a happy ending. I enjoyed the rollercoaster along the way. A goodread and I’m opening the next story in this series as soon as I finish writing this.

    I love Elan as books for the focus on love and romance. Charlotte’s story was difficult to experience at times, but so worth the sadness.

    The Island House

    The Island House Book 1 is such a sweet love story. Eland Johnson did a great job pulling the reader into the lives of Charlotte and Dawson. I found myself wishing they would fall in love from the start. I look forward to more stories from Ms Johnson.

    Sweet happily ever after book. I loved that Dawson didn’t use awful language, and there weren’t raunchy sex scenes. These kinds of books are hard to find. Love this story!

    Good Clean Love Story

    This story was clean and a fun read. This is one of those story that is realistic. What happen in this story could have happen to anyone. But, all is well. The author identifies the problem and allows the couple to work it out. I really liked the way they discovered each other and love. I like this author; she writes leaving nothing out.

    Fun story

    This story gets to the heart of what it means to have your whole life turned upside down. Charlotte finds herself divorced and deserted by her friends. So she moves across the world to Hawaii to form a new life. Dawson was in Hawaii making a new life for himself after being thrown over by his fiancé who quickly moves on to his brother. Neither of them thought that they would ever be able to recover from their past.I really enjoyed this story watching them deal with their pasts and decide if they have a future together or not.
