This is the first in a trilogy. After reading it, I do want to read the books that came before it that deal with the island. Being a novella, the story is short and to the point. The I liked the characters and thought Leo and Serena were cute together. I loved the poem that Leo recites at the end of the story. It was very sweet. The only thing I didn't buy was that Leo, having a ton of money, would not hire someone to help him with his "problem". Especially a business man like him. But, I still enjoyed their love story.
