Mila Quinn is ready to finally move out of the college dorms into an apartment with her longtime boyfriend, Ethan Lowe. But when Ethan reveals a big secret, her world is suddenly turned upside down, stirring up old memories of love and loss. Completely torn apart, she boards a plane to Hawaii to escape for the summer.

Even though Mila wants to spend her time in paradise in isolation, fate has other plans when it drops sexy local Gage Madden in her lap. Hesitant at first, she agrees to let him take the reins on her island exploration. As Mila discovers the wonders of Oahu with Gage, it becomes harder for her to fight the budding attraction between them.

But behind the curtain of island adventures and undeniable chemistry, trouble is brewing where Mila least expects it. Secrets begin to bubble to the surface that could destroy her all over again. Will Mila find her paradise? Or will she leave Hawaii with another broken heart?



Finding Paradise is a New Adult Contemporary book focusing on Mila who, after a break-up with her long term boyfriend, spends her summer vacation in beautiful Hawaii visiting her Aunt and cousin Baylee. While in Hawaii Mila finds her heart may be healing and she may just find another love is possible. This book swept the gamut of emotions. From grief to overwhelming joy, this book made me feel it all. Mia’s character was relatable and I could empathic well with her, Baylee, as a side character was amazing. I loved the scenes between these two cousins so much. The slow burning friends to more relationship had me hooked and the chemistry between those two was unbelieveable. It was an utter joy reading this book if only because it made me feel.

V.P. Ortiz lives, works, and breathes in sunny/snowy/beautiful Colorado with her loving husband, their two beautiful children, and their three fat cats. While her home may be in the Rocky Mountains, she left her heart somewhere on the island of Oahu, where she plans to retire someday in a tiny house with an avocado tree and free-range chickens. Besides reading any book in sight, her hobbies also include eating, dancing, lip syncing, and occasionally running until her husband has to pick her up eight miles away because she got lost and has a leg cramp.
