Morgan Callahan is a seventeen-year-old girl with a life in turmoil. She\'s still recovering from a broken leg, hobbling along on crutches. Her mother has just remarried and is indulging in a little private honeymoon with her new husband. Her father, who she hasn\'t seen in three years, is currently in Aruba for business, and she\'s passed along to him for the summer. Arriving on a tropical island for a little summer vacation should be calming, but from the very beginning, it\'s anything but. Her father is so busy with work-big surprise!-that he sends his twenty-year-old assistant, an intern for the summer, to pick Morgan up at the airport. Heaven forbid Phillip Callahan should take even an hour break from his busy schedule to pick his own daughter up upon arrival on an island in the middle of nowhere. To make matters worse, Phillip is detained in a late meeting, and the only person Morgan has for company is Cyrus \"Cy\" Reed, that cute assistant of her father\'s. Determined to get to know her father better, to get to know Cy a whole lot more, and have a relaxing vacation beneath the Aruba sunshine, Morgan gets a bit more than she bargained for. When a battle begins to erupt between some drug lords and CIA agents, all hell breaks loose on Aruba. TROPICAL KISS was a sweet story that has it all-suspense, intrigue, a nice island setting, comedy, and a summer spent learning about romance and family dynamics. Morgan is a typical teenager from a broken home. She\'s struggling to find her own identity, trying to get closer to a father who has always put his business first. With Cy, she finds a man who is both irritating and attractive at the same time, and she has to learn to come to grips with those conflicting emotions. A well-paced young adult book with down-to-earth characters, TROPICAL KISS is a great read for a summer afternoon spent out in the sun.show moreby TeensReadToo
