Another delightful read from this talented author! I love how she develops her characters, making them feel like someone you know well and can relate to. In this case the heroine is Sophie Birch who has left her studies into how the brain works to become an event organiser. She wasn’t supposed to be in charge of this event but her boss is unable to do it because of injury so now is her chance to show just what she is capable of. The only problem is that, although an extremely bright young lady, Sophie is somewhat introverted, has never been to the ocean before and is now in charge of the prestigious film festival in White Strand Cove. Not only that but she’s been tasked with fulfilling all the arrangements made for her boss – including a surf lesson with the hot, sexy and famous surfer, Zane Hollander – and she’s never been in the sea before!
Zane is an extrovert, attractive and a brilliant surfer, winning competitions and a highly popular and accessible star. He’s also wanting a new role, one that he cares passionately about, but to do that he also needs to change some aspects of his image, especially those aspects regarding his relationships with women. Sophie is the perfect person to help with this! As the klutzy brainiac and the sexy surfer get to know each other, they help each other – she becomes more outgoing and confident in her looks and personality whilst he becomes more willing to talk about his past and the impact it has on him now, opening up to her and she helps him go for his new goals. There has to be something go wrong with all this, of course, but you’ll have to read it yourself to find out what – and how things are resolved in the end!
There are multiple threads running through this with some difficult issues, too, including child abuse, being diagnosed with thyroid cancer, the need for women’s refuges and so much more. It is emotively written, making it easy to relate to the well portrayed characters and I thoroughly enjoyed escaping to the beach in this heartwarming read.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
*Please note this is a Red-Hot Bliss which means there are more explicit open door sex scenes.**
A temporary agreement neither could keep…
Brainy, organized Sophie Birch is no beach bunny. In fact, she’s totally out of her element among the sun-bronzed crowd at a film festival in beautiful White Strand Cove. When a surf lesson introduces her to Zane Hollander, suddenly she’s up close and personal with the world’s sexiest surf star. But what can a great-looking, experienced athlete possibly see in a klutzy out-of-towner who’s never set foot in the ocean?
Zane Hollander’s playboy reputation has never been a problem…until recently. Now his management team wants him on his best behavior to entice a meaningful new sponsor. Sophie Birch is the perfect girl to help reform his image. She’s genuine and respected—and their relationship is purely fictional. But the more Sophie blooms under the beachy sun, the more Zane knows he’ll just break her heart. Because nothing’s more important to Zane than following the tide.
