Review: Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle

Review: Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle

Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle on March 31, 2015 I went into this book mostly blind, really not knowing what to expect. As a fan of Karina Halle’s, I was hoping for some delicious angst, a unique story, and some serious steam. I ended up getting the unique story and steam, an overload of frustrating angst, along with something I didn’t expect: a new love for a country across the world. Josh Miles’ one night stand with Gemma Henare lights a spark in his otherwise dull existence.

With only her first name and very little money, Josh tracks Gemma down and they end up on a whirlwind road trip of New Zealand together. What happens next between Josh and Gemma is far […]
