It’s all fun and games

I had a simple plan for spring break.

Sun, sand, and a hot guy. Sex on the beach, with no strings attached.

A chance to get rid of this pesky virginity once and for all.

And when I met Tyler McKenna, I thought I had it made.

Until someone gets hurt

But then girls started turning up at Key West landmarks. Girls who looked like me, but with one crucial difference: They’d all been drugged and relieved of their virginity.

The virginity I still have. The virginity Ty refuses to take.

And now I’ve begun to wonder whether there isn’t more to him than meets the eye.

Suddenly, sex on the beach doesn’t sound so good anymore...

I’m just a girl…
I’m a famous country star who’s spent her life cultivating a good girl persona to avoid bad press, but I’ve reached my limit. I’m going away for spring break with my two best friends from college, and we’ve vowed to spend the vacation seeking out fun in the sun—along with some hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only thing I needed was the perfect guy, and then I met Austin Murphy. He might be totally wrong for me, but the tattooed bad boy is hard to resist. When I’m in his arms, everything just feels right.

And I’m just a guy…
I’m just a bartender who lives in Key West, stuck in an endless cycle of boredom. But then Mackenzie Forbes, America’s Sweetheart herself, comes up to me and looks at me with those bright green eyes…and everything changes. She acts like she’s just a normal girl and I’m just a normal guy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My past isn’t pretty, you know. I did what I had to do to survive, and she’d run if she learned the truth about my darkness. But with her, I’m finally realizing what it’s like to be alive. To laugh, live, and be happy.

All good things must come to an end...

CAN FUN IN THE SUN TURN INTO LASTING LOVE?
Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on lies...or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in...

OR WILL A LIFE BUILT ON LIES RUIN EVERYTHING?
The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted...until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever...

Mackenzie Forbes just wanted to be NORMAL.

But how can you be when you’re considered to be America’s sweetheart and have all the paparazzi chasing after you wherever you go, trying to get you into compromising, or humiliating scenarios just for money?

It’s no question why TRUST was an issue for Mackenzie. She had been betrayed several times, even by someone she trusted the most. So, armed with subtle disguise, she is off with two of her college best friends on a spring break. She wanted to enjoy the sun, the beach, the party and probably some no-strings attached sex without the media trying to expose her. She wanted the perfect guy – she wanted Austin Murphy. But Austin was far from perfect -

“I don’t tell people about myself, and I don’t bond. I don’t ever want more than a quick fuck and a goodbye.”

Tattooed, bad boy with a lot of secrets hidden beneath him – he may not be the perfect guy, but he was perfect for her.

Austin Murphy didn’t have the perfect past, heck, his present and his future was even uncertain. He had a lot of issues and responsibilities on his shoulders. But when Mackenzie Forbes sat in front of him, his dull, boring life suddenly became different. She tried to act like she was just a nobody, but he thought differently. Even in disguise, she still stood out.

It was all for the spring break – there was an expiration date. They were perfect for each other. Mackenzie was comfortable with him, he was creeping into her heart, and it was something both of them didn’t see coming. But when trust was questioned, betrayal was accused and the dark past were uncovered - what happens next?

You get to fall in love with these two amazing characters who shared almost the same painful past. Mackenzie just wanted to experience normalcy in her life for once, she deserved it after everything that she had been through. She just wanted someone who wouldn’t sell her to the tabloids. Austin – he had a dark past he wasn’t really proud of – but what he’s doing right now made up for every past mistake he has done. He would put everything, and anything, (even Mackenzie) behind his responsibility, and it was noble of him.

BETWEEN US is a short and sexy read. I loved the characters, and enjoyed the fast-paced plot. I did not dare put it down, I was hooked to my Kindle until the last page, with my heart on my throat, wondering when this was all going – hoping that both of them would get their HEA. The anticipation, and sleeping in the wee hours of the morning was totally worth it.

Three Friends. One Vacation. One Goal.

I’m on my second book of the SEX IN THE BEACH series – and who could have known that this nerd, uptight, good-doer would have the HOTTEST book in the series (so far!).

Indeed, opposite attracts, but James and Quinn makes up a one, hot, amazing couple.

She was a nerd who wants to save the world. She was the type of girl who wanted to make a difference. She wasn’t the outgoing type, and most likely to get a casual fling among the three of them – that is before she have met James Hunt. He was everything she was warned about.

James Hunt was her very opposite – all he do was fun, party with his friends, and sleep with countless women. He was an Ivy Leaguer drop-out with no sense of direction, but beneath this cool, imposing exterior lies an insecure boy who only wanted attention and approval from his rich parents.

It was supposed to be casual, no strings, just pure, plain unadulterated pleasure. But things started to get personal when James uncovered his true self. More than his richness, or his hotness, Quinn fell for the real James, and she thought he felt the same. Only to discover that it was all a ruse.

Ouch.

They had chemistry, they had instant connection, and the bed would do a spontaneous combustion when they are in it. I loved seeing them together, they were good for each other. You can see the changes in them both, Quinn started to experience life, and James started to put meaning in his.

When caught red-handed, he became defensive and she forgave him for that but Quinn had been on this path before, he needed to do something for himself first before she would allow him in her life – which was totally understandable on her part. She didn’t insist because it would be futile if she would do so, he would only destroy whatever future they could have. It was painful to watch her walk away from it all, but it was all for the best.

The ending? I couldn’t ask for more perfect than what Jennifer Probst did.

Wow. I was shock. I was fascinated. I was awe-struck. Who says books doesn’t keep your bed warm at night haven’t read this story yet. Jennifer Probst kept me awake at night, made my bed warm, and my heart flutter. ARC Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.
