Welcome back to Laguna Beach…
Laura Kinkaid’s glamorous Hollywood life is falling apart. After years of reality television stardom beginning in high school on Laguna Nights, her career and relationship with her long-term boyfriend Scott are fizzling out. Laura decides to go home to Laguna Beach for the weekend to attend a baby shower for her high school friend. That decision – and a car accident – will lead her to a new future, if she’s ready to take a chance at love.
Paul Dorn’s former life in New York City is far behind him and he’s working in a popular Laguna Beach surf shop when fate brings the most beautiful woman he’s ever met into his life. The attraction is instant and he has an overwhelming desire to protect her. While Paul’s retail sales career is a short-term job for market research purposes, his focus on Laura is long-term.
Will Laura allow a handsome stranger to help her create a future unlike her past, or will the bright lights of Hollywood pull her back to LA?

Review: Laguna Nights By: Kaira Rouda
I love this series so much! And this book fits in so well with the others, typically when most authors get 2 Or 3 books into a series there is a little slip of the quality of the storytelling but here in the 3rd installment of the Laguna Beach series we are still getting top notch stories! I love the whole celebrity aspect and seeing what life is like on the other side of the fame and fortune. So often we think of celebrities as these God like untouchable people who aren’t real people who want the same things out of life like most of us do. To the average Joe its easier to live and fall in love and be who you want to be.
This story follows Laura a reality star from back in high school who is trying to branch out and try new things. She ends up going back to visit and old friend for her baby shower and while in town she is in a accident –The after effects lead her to really consider what is important in her life (and thankfully her skeezy ex boyfriend isn’t what she considers important although that was a close Call! I admit I yelled at her a little) but she meets Paul and he is her complete opposite, but like most stories that’s what makes them work, drive each other nuts and gradually form something more.
Back in the day I was such a fan of the teen dramas (The O.C. Anyone? Or how about those MTV ones about Laguna Beach?) Yep Huge fan right here so I knew this series would be right up my alley, but this series is more than bubblegum fiction. It has heart and intrigue as well. I love all of Kaira’s books and this one is amazing!
