Storyline

Jackie Laurens (Heather Locklear) is a recently divorced, 40-year-old and mother of two pre-teen kids who takes a vacation alone to Hawaii where, against her better judgment, she meets and hooks up with a hunky, much younger resident surf instructor named Kyle Hamilton (Robert Buckley). But what began as a one-night stand turns into love as when her vacation is done, she flies to Hawaii every chance she gets to meet with her latest love interest, which soon gets disapproval from her ex-husband, her teenage kids, and even her close friends. As time and the pressure from everyone around her to break it off with Kyle pushes Jackie to her breaking point, it will only take her beau Kyle to teach her how to cope before life passes her by.

It is an OK movie...
8 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since I has nothing else, I started watching this movie...I planned to watch it only for 10 mins,but it became quite interesting and I had to watch the end before I sleep...till the end I was not sure how this would end, though I has a slight feeling that it might end like this.. ... I could clearly see how much trouble/complications it would be to have hawaii lover and 2 kids back at Denver... this is a nice,slow,pleasant movie to watch and feel good. I just loved the hawaii lover, though he looked young for the heroine...:-( And the 2 kids are good too...The hawaii scenes could have been better, I mean they could have shown more hawaii stuff & places. If it comes on TV, try to watch...U may like it :-)
