This was a fun, quick, and steamy read. I love the witty banter between Drake & Paige, the dialogue & innuendos were a lot of fun. I am very excited for the next book in the series.
4.0 out of 5 stars Quick, fun, flirty read! 22 October 2014

Complimentary copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Paige is the owner of a quaint bookstore on Quaylo Island, a small island off the coast of Oregon. She lives alone, just a couple of years out from possibly reaching the status of spinster as it is just her and her cat Clyde. One blustery day though, Drake Dorsey blows into her life.

Drake Dorsey is a venture capitalist visiting the island, sizing it up for a client who may want to purchase it in order to develop it as a tourist destination. While there are a few tourist activities, the island remains largely untapped as a destination vacation. When Drake makes the acquaintance of the slightly mousy Paige, he begins to pick up on her not-so-subtle flirting. Paige has a habit of picking up on some of the male tourists that make their way into her shop. It helps to fulfill her needs, with no strings attached. She’s been burned with relationships before, with promises of returning, and she is unwilling to put her heart on the line.

When it turns out the storm is worse than anticipated and Drake has no way to leave the island, he ends up spending the night with Paige, and they finally get together. Needless to say, it is hot and steamy! However once Paige finds out the real reason Drake is on the island, things cool off quickly. Unfortunately in their time together they have an attraction to each other that goes beyond simply physical. When it is time for Drake to leave, will Paige be able to let go? Can she follow her dreams in some place away from Quaylo Island, the only home she has ever known?

Kissing Drake was a quick, light romance with just the right amount of heat. The relationship and sexual tension between Paige and Drake is palpable and the characters are well developed. The ending is a little predictable, but this was a fun read all around. This is a good solid four stars and I look forward to learning more about the Butterfly Girls of Quaylo Island, Paige’s friends, Opal and Amaya.

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
New to me author = I'm never quite sure how I’m going to gel with the writing style. This was fun though, easy to read, well set out and with real feeling people in it. Its mainly focussed around Drake and Paige, though there are nods to other island inhabitants in the story. Paige sees Drake, knows he's here for just a short while, and decides that as he's looking at her like he wants her, a one night fling will be perfect. Give BOB a rest... She doesn't get opportunity often with there being so few people living on the island so its Carpe Diem!
They have some shuffling about before they both take the plunge, Drake is surprised by her forwardness. “I'm a sure thing” she tells him at one point :) Then there's fireworks, star-bursts and lots of hot, heavy erotic sex. That Drake may be staid on the outside but in bed he's something else :) In between bouts of sex they talk, though he's very closed about why he's there, and they both start to look at the lives they lead. Is staying on the island the rest of her life what Paige really wants? She's always thought so, lost her fiancé as she wouldn't move, but talking to Drake she wonders if maybe its just that she's settled, reading books about other people travelling, having adventures, finding romance, as a substitute for what she really wants to do but daren't take the plunge. She loves the island but maybe she could spread her wings a bit too. Then there's Drake, dragged himself up from very poor childhood to rich businessman, but on the way has he lost sight of what life means? Talking to Paige about his travels he realises that although he's been to many paradise places, all he's seen of them is the inside of a hotel room...They both need to do some inner searching. Things conspire to force Drake to stay longer on the island, and the purpose of his visit comes out. From then on its Islanders against Drake, and just when he and Paige were finding out how good they were together. Can they get past that when they are so diametrically opposed.
Its a shortish read at just 123 ( goodreads info) pages but its well put together and is a fun way to lose some time on a paradise island.
Stars: Four, enjoyable read but not one I’d re read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Butterfly Island 26 April 2014

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Paige Owens is a business owner on Quaylo Island, also known as Butterfly Island. It is a small quaint community where she runs her own bookstore. She was born and raised on the island and likes things just as they are. Paige lives her life day to day reading her books and letting her imagination run wild. When Drake Dorsey saves her sign during a rain storm she thinks she hit the jack pot. What's a one night stand with a handsome, sexy man she'll never see again?

Drake is a venture capitalist with an agenda. He is a numbers man. They make sense to him while most other things in life just make him feel stupid. He has a plan and lives by it minute to minute. He's not quite sure what to make of Paige when he first meets her but sees no reason why he shouldn't take her up on her offer.

The more these two get to know about each other the more there attraction heats up. Even if they still see each other as combatants where Quaylo Island is considered.

I liked Paige's quirkiness. She was sweet and caring but still had one heck of a backbone. She wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted. Drake was confusing. He seemed like an efficient businessman but as I learned more about him it seemed like he was still trying to find himself in other ways. He made numbers his entire life and forgot to actually live it.

I was happy to see this wasn't an instant love match. They really had to work at it. It was a sweet romance story.

Paige Owens owns a bookstore on Quaylo Island, off the coast of Oregon. She has lived there her entire life, and has no desire to leave. Drake Dorsey is a venture capitalist, there to investigate and evaluate the island for an investment opportunity. He takes shelter in Paige's bookstore during a rain storm and they find ways to pass the time and get to know each other. It is supposed to be an hour long fling. That is all the time this focused and intent businessman has to devote to "play" time. That's fine with Paige. He is hot and available. What more could you ask for to pass some time during a storm? She has given up on relationships, and short flings are all she allows herself these days. Free spirited Paige is not like any of Drake's previous hook-ups. She is fun, relaxed and happy in her own skin. He finds himself drawn to her in ways he's not accustomed to. She's like a magnet, drawing him back to her. What does that mean?

The book explores the blossoming relationship of Drake and Paige. It was a fun read, and held my attention throughout. I loved passing an afternoon with these two characters. I can't wait to read more of Jenna Dales books. This is my second, and I have added her to my favorite authors list.
