Girl off the Grid
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A travel romance that will take you on the adventure of a lifetime.
NYC fashion blogger, Camille Caldwell, gets offered a dream job by her favorite magazine. They’re going to send her on an all-expenses paid eco-trip to Costa Rica. She doesn’t know what that means, but she assumes she’ll wear fabulous clothes, sip Piña Coladas on the beach, and have her photo taken “out in nature.” Really, the hardest part of the assignment will be giving up social media while she’s gone.
Going off social media is no big deal for London-based wildlife photographer, Adam Lloyd. The only reason he even has an account is to share his photos with the world. He’s thrilled when an international publication wants to hire him, until he finds out it’s a fashion magazine. He decides to take the job anyway—after all, it will be great for his portfolio. But the minute he sees Camille, he knows it was a mistake. She has too much luggage, is too high maintenance, and way too pretty.
When they meet, their feelings are mutual—they hate each other. Can these two stop fighting long enough to complete their assignment? Will Camille give up and go home when she discovers there’s nowhere to plug in her hair straightener?
Or will they both realize that sometimes you have to go off the grid to find yourself?

Their headquarters are in Florida, but they have programs worldwide that work to conserve sea turtle populations through education, research, advocacy, and protection of natural habitats. They also have a research station in Tortuguero, Costa Rica which was one of the places they visited in the book.
Loved the book. Kenzie did a good job, she made it feel like you are along on the adventure with Adam and Camille. You get to see another culture and see how you could make a difference like Adam and Camille talked about. It's a very inspiring book to read and will make you think. Highly recommend this book it's worth your time.
Love the story
This is a great story about an unexpected romance. The book was fast paced and gives you all the feels while reading it. My absolute favorite part was with the turtles. I would love to have more about these characters.
I Felt Like I Was On Vacation
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought it was a perfect YA book that showed the growth of the main characters. They were both charming in their own ways and were likable, funny characters.
The thing the struck me the most was the description of Costa Rica. The details of the animals and sites they see along the way made me feel like I was on vacation sitting right next to them and experienceing everything with them. I loved being swept away to another place and have a little chuckle at the same time.
I thought the knowledge I will take away from reading about this area will stay with me. I would highly recommend this book and look forward to sharing this story with my teenage daughter.
