Vacationista by Tara Simone

Add to Goodreads


A broken heart. A ticket to paradise. A resort full of honeymooners …
the last thing newly single Patience De La Rosa needs if she’s to find a candidate for a casual rebound.
Her luggage catching a flight to Mauritius instead of Maui doesn’t help matters and a maxed out credit
card doesn’t buy a girl a fresh pair of panties. Then there’s the annoying weird guy, the one who’s married
to his laptop, sitting beside her at the pool.
Odds for a fling improve when three single, sexy and willing candidates cross her path. Though
Patience’s luggage may be M.I.A., her breakup baggage crossed the Pacific with her. Will Patience cast it
aside, throw caution to the tropical winds and indulge in island debauchery? Or will a tea leaf reader’s
prediction about her romantic excursions come true in unexpected ways?

Shasta’s 5 Star Review:

Let me just say Wow!! When I first started to read Vacationista by Tara Simone, I thought please let the girl end up with a wonderful guy and not just some vacation fling. Well Tara did not disappoint.  Vacationista is absolutely a wonderful funny read. I could not put it down. I ended up starting to read it late at night and ended up waking everyone up from laughing so much.

Patience De La Rosa ends up finding herself alone on a beach vacation after breaking up with her boyfriend of 3 years. At first she is so determined after a tea leaf reading to have not one but three one night stands because that is what she is told is going to happen. But along the way she runs into some snags. Her luggage is lost, she has maxed out her credit card (on said vacation, because she wanted to surprise her ex), and she only has $200.00 to her name for an entire week.

Patience ends up meeting Huey, a funny and I think adorable screenwriter from LA, by the pool when she wants to relax. At first, she thinks Huey is this weird guy, but he turns out to be a wonderful man that helps her learn things along the way and she becomes his muse.

This is a wonderful read and I know you will enjoy reading it. It will make you laugh until it hurts by the journey that Patience goes through to find out what she really wants. It is a must read!!!
