The Heartbeats of Aloha


Separated by tragedy, reunited by fate, will these star-crossed lovers get a second chance at love?




I’ve been in love with the same woman since we were children. I never imagined I’d become a romance writer with a hidden identity, but I wanted to see her again, if only for three hundred pages. When her uncle asked me for help with a plan to get her out of a bad situation, how could I say no to a fake relationship with my childhood love?




I broke up with the only man I ever loved to protect him. Music became my escape, but with fame came trade-offs such as my label turning a ukulele festival into a publicity stunt between me and their ukulele superstar–aka my ex. That's the last thing I need for my anxiety and panic attacks. But my uncle's fake relationship plan might prove even more dangerous because all my love songs are about my childhood sweetheart, and it’s only a matter of time until he realizes I never fell out of love with him. 


Reef is having a difficult time opening his heart up again, especially since secrets are weighing him down. Luna knows she’s playing with fire because she’ll only fall even harder this time and that’s something she has no right to do. 


These star-crossed lovers have been pining for over a decade. Will reality be better than fantasy? Or when their secrets come to light, will they wish they’d left them buried in the past?
