From Twelve friends from the online group, Romantic Hearts Book Club, decide to finally meet in person during a destination Caribbean vacation to beautiful Enchanted Island. While of different ages and stages in life, these ladies have two things in common: 1) they are diehard romantics, and 2) they’ve been let down by love. As a wildly silly dare during her last night on the island, each heroine decides to stuff a note in a bottle addressed to her “dream hero” and cast it out to sea! 

Bestselling thriller author Jenny Hanford never expects anything to happen the night she whimsically throws her requirements for true love into the ocean. Thirteen months later, however, she hears back from the man who found her message in a bottle. 

Exchanging carefree emails and texts makes Jenny smile and fills her days with anticipation. But when she gets word her bottle finder, a soldier named Dare, has been injured and is asking for her, she can’t deny her growing feelings for her online friend. Jenny wants to go, but she’s afraid Dare will turn out to be as make believe as the characters she creates. What are the odds he could be her real dream hero? 


My Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Let me begin my review by saying that although this says it is book number five in a series, each story is a stand alone that can be read in any order. In fact, before Jenny, I had not read any of the other books in the series. However, I was in the mood for a sweet and quick read and that is just what this book delivered. 

Jenny and Dare were wonderfully witty characters who had an obvious chemistry and a deep connection, even though they had not met in person and in fact had only communicated via email and text messaging. For as short as this novel was, the author did a great job of developing the characters and the story-line to convey everything in a way that allowed the reader to not only get to know these two, but to end their story feeling fulfilled. 

I am sure this story will definitely appeal to those who enjoy a good, clean romance novel, and I would read more from this author!
