Emeralds and Fire (The Tienimi Club Series Book 1) by Aurelia Fray
For those still seeking the destination.
Don’t forget to appreciate the journey. It is all the little things that happen along the way that make it all worthwhile and leave us with memories we can keep for a lifetime.
“Quite by chance, the private message from Tienimi appeared in the CEO’s business inbox precisely when she needed to arrange her vacation. If she read the message at any other time she would have disregarded it immediately, but it showed up when she needed it most. When she was angry and insecure and felt an overwhelming pressure from the company to take her annual leave. She never dreamt they would reply, so to say she was shocked when the sleek chocolate-brown envelope showed up in her tray was a gross understatement. Tienimi was not the kind of place people like her frequented. Not the kind of place people like her could afford either. It was going to break the bank. Still, she convinced herself that she deserved a blowout; she would treat herself to one last splurge before she was forced to tighten the purse strings again…Thank you for your application, Ms. McGrath. We are pleased to confirm your booking and temporary membership. Your tickets and passes are being couriered to you as we speak. We look forward to meeting you. Safe travels and thank you for choosing Tienimi. The Tienimi team.”
So begins a most unusual and exciting journey for hard-working, overachiever at work, and extremely nice Executive Personal Assistant Ms. Jane McGrath who will be a temporary member and guest of the most exclusive and mysterious Tienimi resort – playground of the world’s most richest and elite. Darling Reader, you will be taking this journey along with her and oh my the steamy and spicy situations Jane gets into. Questions that will be answered along the way:
Will she have a job with Blake, Wilson and Sachs after her vacation? Just exactly who is the new CEO – Mr. C. Blake? Why did the elusive Mr. Blake insist Jane take a vacation during the changeover from Daniel Wilson CEO?
This is the first book I have ever read by the author – Aurelia Fray – and I am most impressed with her way with words! The scenes and terminology were realistic to present-day. The flow of the plot was perfect for a contemporary romantic-comedy, with characters well-developed with human flaws and quirks. Ms. Fray’s scenic descriptions aided the reader to really sense they were at the lush Tienimi resort.
Eternally, I will not divulge ANY spoilers, Darling Reader.
I gave this book five (5) stars as I am Enthusiastic about this book
and I ardently advise you, Dearest Reader to buy this book.
Sapphires and Songs (The Tienimi Club Series Book 2) by Aurelia Fray
For all those who fall at that first glance.
“The resort ran on a color system that identified the kind of involvement members were comfortable with, Staff wore blue sapphires mostly – new members or those seeking solitude wore green emeralds, those open for making friends wore yellow topaz and the more adventurous members stood out in brilliant red rubies. Each kept to their own groups, as per the rules, and all of them knew to obey said rules by identifying themselves via a bracelet at all times. Because of my age, all ruby interaction was strictly off-limits and that was the major hiccup this shrink was stumbling over. “I have merely a matter of days until my twenty-first birthday, Might I propose a training period where I shadow other companions or perhaps fill in for particular activities where age is irrelevant? Of perhaps be assigned to members of a similar age?” And BAM that was my plan in a nutshell. The girl I was obsessed with was younger than me by three months. If she was coming to the island, as I suspected she would be, I would be the most suitable candidate for companionship because I was of similar age. “I will hand you over to one of our more experienced liaisons for training with a few restrictions, of course, and we will see how you get on.” “Thank you.” “Oh, and Mr. Hale?” “Hmm?” “Do not even think about breaking the age laws for any member or purpose whatsoever. If you do, it will be an immediate dismissal. Do you understand?” “Of course! I wouldn’t dream of it.”
This is the fruition of an year-long quest to locate a girl that a boy fell in love with at first sight! Mr. Josh Fletcher, five (5) % owner of the resort thanks to his mother’s inheritance, is undercover as Mr. Josh Hale, and took on the role of a new staff member at the most exclusive and mysterious Tienimi Club – a select resort and playground of the world’s most richest and elite. He wanted to find Penelope, a girl whom he first saw at his first visit to Tienimi Club.
Gorgeous Bookworm, you will be taking this trip along with him and oh my the hilarious situations Josh gets into. Questions that will be answered along the way:
Will he find his true love – Penelope? What lengths will he go to in order to interact with her to see if what he feels is still real – or just a love-sick day dream? Who is this girl Blue? Why does Josh seem to be distracted by her?
I really enjoyed the tableaus and jargon, the flow of the plot was fluid and just right for a contemporary romantic-comedy, with characters well-developed with human failings and peculiarities. Ms. Fray’s picturesque narratives abetted the reader to truly sense they were at the plush Tienimi Club.
Everlastingly, I will not divulge ANY spoilers, Sweet Reader.
I gave this book five (5) stars as I am Passionate about this book
and I highly recommend you, Darling Bibliophile buy this book.
Topaz and Tides (The Tienimi Club Series Book 3) Aurelia Fray
For those who seek someone to fight for.
“It always annoyed her that anxiety would crush her in the rare moments of peace. It always hit right out of the blue and with no apparent cause like delayed shock and she wondered whether her attacks were always going to plague her. Would she be surrounded by good things one day and then have her happiness eaten into by the ghosts of her past? She took a second to register that fact that she really did want happiness. She inherently knew that she could have it one day and that in itself was a complete leap forward in thinking. She spent so long dwelling in the misery of her life and convincing herself that Donovan was her happiness that she wasn’t sure she even knew what genuine happiness was anymore. It seemed a little ironic that she made this positive development in the aftermath of an anxiety episode but, despite that fact that she was naked, cold and hiding in a holiday resort, Harry finally felt like she was on the right track. She smiled a tired but genuine smile which echoed back at her from her reflection in the shower door.”
This is the start of a journey for Ms. Harriet (Harry) Fairbanks, old friend and guest of Miss Penelope Littleton, part-owner of the most exclusive and mysterious Tienimi Club – a select resort and playground of the world’s most richest and elite.
She was escaping her abusive ex-boyfriend Donovan in England; together for about six years on and off, with the last two years of their relationship shrouded in physical, psychological, emotional, and verbal abuse.
Gorgeous Bookworm, you will be taking this journey in healing along with her and the sweet and uplifting, at times funny, circumstances she experiences. Questions that will be answered along the way:
Will Harry finally let go of the ghosts from her past? Will she find true love at Tienimi? Will Josh and Penny help or hinder Harry? Will Harry finally find the strength within herself to love and live an truly authentic life?
I absolutely loved how the Hawaiian culture and customs flavored this story.
With such lush, and photographic descriptions of the flora and fauna of the island as well as the insight of Josh’s background. I love how with each book in this Tienimi Club Series, characters from previous books continue to interact together. The continuity of this really adds to each plot point and draws the reader deeper into the Tienimi Club family.
Always, I will not divulge ANY spoilers, Gentle Reader.
I gave this book five (5) stars as I am Enthusiastic about this book
and I favorably propose you, Bodacious Bookworm buy this book.
*Trigger warning – there are a few scenes with physical and verbal abuse in this book, and it is handled with grace and is appropriate to the story.
Rubies and Silk (The Tienimi Club Series Book 4) by Aurelia Fray
For all those who hold out for the one.
“What if I had an idea?” “What kind of idea? The last bright idea you had ended in your fraudulently signing up to a singles resort and nearly performing in a live sex show for charity.” Jane blushed at Milly’s words but waved them away with a flicking gesture of her hand. It was completely true of course, and Jane was totally unprepared for the situation she walked into that night at Tienimi’s Chase Bar.(Emeralds and Fire, The Tienimi Club Series, Book 1). “Yes, but I also met you and Chris and fell in love and changed my life so I think it was a really great idea. I’m good at this thinking stuff, Milly, trust me.” Jane grinned confidently.
“Famous last words, “ Milly grumbled. “Fine, what’s the plan?” “Tienimi.” “That’s not a plan, that’s a place.”…
“I know but you all have to go back for the director’s meeting next weekend.”
“What if you stayed on for a couple of weeks? I could fly out and meet you with a few of the girls and we could make the most of the last weeks of the season. I missed the luau last time and the fireworks and the staff performances. Come on, Milly, it will be fun. We can send the boys back early and stay out there. Please, Milly?” Jane clapped her hands together and bounced up and down excitedly, shoving Milly further into the jagged springs of the sofa’s failed cushioning. Milly quickly put her cup down on the nearby table to avoid a scalding from all of Jane’s bouncing around. “Do you even remember how much protection you needed last time you were there?” Milly grumbled lifting her sore butt away from the springs and rubbing it better.
“Yeah, but I was completely innocent about what went on there. I know better now. I might even have graduated to a topaz player. Come on what do you say?”…
“Fine. Book it.” Milly gave in. It probably wasn’t going to be any different to every previous year but being with friends instead of the overbearing Blake boys might make it a little more like a vacation and a lot less like work.”
Jane would go on to make all of the arrangements – but, just what kind of arrangements for entertainment did Jane have in mind? Would Milly finally meet a man to set her world on fire? Could Milly let go of the past and allow her heart to open? Would this vacation at Tienimi be a success or a failure?
All of these burning questions, and more will be answered in this steamy and spicy romantic tale!
So excited to see returning characters from the previous books in The Tienimi Club Series interacting together again, their relationships have grown and changed with time – very realistic! Once Again our Authoress – Ms. Fray has dipped her pen into magic ink to paint a lush and exotic landscape of Hawaiian island panoramas.
Evermore, I will not divulge ANY spoilers, Beautiful Booklover.
I gave this book five (5) stars as I Simply Adore this book
and I caringly counsel you, Darling Reader to buy this new series.
