Leigh Ramos is a woman on the run from her own life. After barely escaping from a toxic relationship with a drug dealer, emotionally codependent Leigh decides to start her life over somewhere far from the hills of Kentucky. She feels inexplicably drawn to Hawaii, where she manages to land a job in an exclusive resort. At first, it almost seems too good to be true, and of course, it is.

Supernatural horrors start manifesting all around Leigh and her new co-workers, and soon she starts having disturbing nightmares of impossible creatures calling out to her. To make matters worse, Leigh’s violent ex-boyfriend is close on her tail, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. Now trapped in the midst of all these dangers, Leigh can't help but fall back on old habits. She finds comfort in the arms of her new boss, an upbeat hospitality manager who seems almost too perfect.

In order to survive paradise, Leigh will need to learn from her past mistakes or she will be doomed to repeat them.

The author does a great job of world-building, and setting the novel in a fantastical place and time. 
There is a lot of Nature vs Nurture in this tale, and somehow the final answer is a bit of both. 
I liked the ups and downs and the way the author didn't shy away from darker moments. 
Meanwhile, the background and back story are compelling and draw you in. It all leads up to an epic conclusion is absolutely right for the book. Well done indeed.
