My Review of Coffee and Kukui Nuts By AJ Llewellyn

Coffee and Kukui Nuts


Genre: Crimes Series, M/M

Rating: Teen

Length: 328KB (90 Pages)

Reviewer: Silver Pixie/Sterling

Book Summery:

Hawaiian explosives expert Abe Torufu looks forward to a day trip on Oahu helping his sister Meleny taste-test wedding cakes. Abe loves cake almost as much as malasadas, but something deadly interrupts their plans for buttercream and spongy goodness. A bomb. 
Abe unwittingly uncovers a near-fatal plot in a marriage gone awry and soon becomes the target of not one but two hit men. He now requires round-the-clock protection from a U.S. Marshal. But not only is Tony McCracken skinny and shorter than the big Tongan detective, but Abe doesn’t need protection. 
Well, that’s until McCracken saves his life in a spectacular way when one of the bad guys finds him. What started as a fun, family day becomes a nightmare and Abe must trust a stranger with his life. Can he? Or is he in big, bad, Hawaiian trouble? Will he live long enough to walk his sister down the flower-strewn, tapa-carpeted aisle, or is there worse to come? 

My Review:
It has been a long while since I have written a review... To be honest, it's been a while since I have treated myself to an AJ Llewellyn book. This was gifted to me by the author and I have to say what a wonderful gift it turned out to be and I am only sorry that I set it aside and didn't read it sooner. 
Abe Torufu island jumps to help his one and only sister taste cakes for her upcoming wedding. What started out as a wonderful day in hell (surrounded my giggling woman and eating cake and the cake was the best part) Abe notices some strange occurrences and steps into action and from there his kinda ok/bad day goes to hell when he notices what he thinks is a bomb. 

His thoroughness and wonderful observation skills land him with around the clock U.S Marshal Body Guard names Tony McCracken who is from the Big Island (not Cali but way farther in a little state called Washington.) Fresh from a child abduction case little does anyone one know that everyone’s pasts are about to cross paths on an ever crazy case.  

Overall the power of Family and friends wins out and for a story with No sex it was compelling, beautiful and heartwarming. It proved to me that Sex doesn't have to be in a story to make it good. AJ out did herself on this one and I am pleased and feel privileged to have been able to Read Coffee and Kukui Nuts.

On my Erect Peni Scale of One to Ten gets:  There was no sex in this book. I sensed some sexual tension but what do you expect from a Kindle Worlds publication, while they are a good company they have issues with dirty sex sometimes in my opinion… let me go on Record that its MY Opinion of them and NOT that of those who write for them nor has anyone ever expressed such things to me.

On my Scale of Wait to Pay Day or Sell the kids It's: I would sell the kids and run out to buy this book. However for the wonderful price of 1.99 cents you wouldn't have to sell the whole child just part to get this wonderful book.
