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.

sweet story, nice script, perfect cast. a love story in same rules of genre, not profound but comfortable, using the difference of age as spice and two not bad actors in the lead roles. so, a modern form of fairy tale with clichés and tension moments, lovely landscapes and pleasant atmosphere. nothing new but that could be its fundamental virtue. because, in fact, it is only a film with Heather Locklear and Robert Buckley, with surfing in Hawaii and collection of stereotypes, ideal choice for Sunday evening, not problematic but sweet and nice and decent. so, an easy romantic film with the ordinaries problems and solutions, selfish and dreams. better than many other examples of genre, it is a soft refuge for romantics and the victims of a hard long work day.
