From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Chris Keniston: another episode of the Surf's Up companion Flirts to the popular contemporary romance Aloha Series Adrien Brady has had enough of pretentious women and party hype. Olivia Wycliff usually finds her dreamy heroes in the comfort of a favorite chair reading a good book. But this New Year's Eve anything is possible---especially with the help of well meaning friends. Join the former navy men from the Big Island Dive shop and the patrons of the Surf's Up Saloon as they celebrate New Year's Eve and witness the sparks of a new romance unfold before their eyes. More From the Author What's a flirt? I think of them as episodes of a weekly TV show. Same familiar location and lead actor with guest stars, and of course cameo appearances of the Aloha cast. These short story Flirts have been so much fun to write. I hope you enjoy seeing the main characters from the series pop in from time to time as much as I do. It's always fun to see a snippet of their lives between books. If you haven't read the rest of the Aloha Series, you're in for a treat. Full length novels about active duty and former navy men and the women and family they love and care about. Some have a little humor, others a little mystery, but all have a lot of heart. Mostly set in Kona around the Big Island Dive shop there's plenty of fun in the sun, so pour yourself a cool drink, put up your feet and enjoy the bestselling Aloha contemporary romance series.
