The Suite Life by Portia MacIntosh
My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Available on Kindle Unlimited.

The Suite Life by Portia MacIntosh has everything I love in a romantic comedy: witty banter, humorous situations, and charming characters.

My Overview

Gigi’s sister is getting married at a destination wedding in Hawaii. Sounds idyllic? Not for Gigi! The best man is Gigi’s ex-boyfriend (Nathan), and his plus one is his gorgeous celebrity girlfriend (Sunshine). Gigi, on the other hand, arrives in Hawaii completely single. As much as she tried, she couldn’t find a date in London for the wedding 🫤. Though Gigi would love to skip this wedding, as chief bridesmaid she’s committed to make the best of it. Once she arrives at the hotel resort in Hawaii, Gigi is surprised by a room mix-up that lands her in a luxurious suite. As it turns out, this is exactly the trip needed after all.

It’s not immediately clear that things are looking up for Gigi, though, in spite of the suite life. The closer the wedding day gets, the more surprises and mishaps she faces 😬. All are courtesy of Nathan, Sunshine, her family … and Donnie (whom she meets at the resort). Fortunately, it all makes for lots of funny and awkward situations throughout the story! Even before Gigi heads off to Hawaii, the situations she encounters courtesy of her co-workers and dates are hilarious 😄.

This is a fun story full of everything I love in a rom-com. From the witty banter, to the awkward situations, and the beautiful setting … I loved it all! Best of all were the supporting characters, and the insight and humor they contributed to the story. Overall, this story has everything I’ve come to expect from MacIntosh. Her witty dialogues and uplifting storylines are what keep me looking forward to her stories.

My Recommendation

Do you enjoy the friends to lovers and close proximity tropes in rom-coms? You’ll enjoy this story! I mostly read the Kindle edition, but then switched to the audiobook. I highly recommend the audiobook. It’s read by Karen Cass, who always does a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life.
