Allie only wanted two weeks of peace and quiet at her friend’s beach house to get her life in perspective. She wasn’t looking for sex, drugs and a kidnapping. But that’s what she gets when she encounters not one but two tasty men.
Tony, her gorgeous next-door neighbor, has a body any woman would want to explore, and Allie crave him licking, teasing and ravishing her body with those strong hands and kissable lips. Little does she know Tony’s on the trail of a drug dealer.
Then there’s Paul, who also wants a piece of Allie…if he can possibly tear her away from Tony.
Sand, Surf and Fun has a whole different meaning with Sex on the Beach. Summer is not complete without a little “Sand and Wave” romance. Throw in a couple HOT hunks and and point me toward the coast! Amber Skyze's has put “Sizzling Heat” back in beach parties and summer romance.
Alley Sandler is an stressed out workaholic who has been running 24/7 at her job for quite sometime. After getting physically sick and realizing she has to change her lifestyle, she quits her demanding job and heads for her friend Pam's beach-house for some much needed rest and relaxation.
Tony Razzano is a 6 foot tall green-eyed sexy Italian who happens to live at the beach-house next door. When Alley sets her eyes on him, thoughts of seduction scenarios creep into her conscious. What Alley does not realize is that Tony is an undercover cop looking for a new drug dealer in town. When Alley makes the mistake of labeling her medications in baggies for her convenience and Tony spies on her and sees her doing this, Tony starts to wonder if perhaps Alley might be the person he has been looking for. But there is a major problem, Tony is extremely attracted to Alley. How can he justify having a relationship with a possible suspect? But we already know the sex will be HOT between our two main characters. After-all that's why we call it erotic!
Tony finds himself scoping out Alley and getting closer to her to know her better (for his job of course...”wink, wink”). He figures this way he can see if she is his drug dealer, yet desperately hoping he is wrong. Soon this blazing affair ignites. How are these two going to keep their hands off each other when Tony finds circumstantial evidence making Alley look guilty?
Throw in a dog named Buddy and a second beach-hunk named Paul and soon this suspense climbs to a chilling and unexpected climax. Can there be a “happily ever after” for Tony and Alley?
This is the second review that I have done on an Amber Skyze beach romance book. I have to say, her stories make me want to rush to the coast and catch myself a hunk like her characters. If only I could reel them in like our heroine does! This tale was as HOT as a July summer beach day! I really enjoyed the fact that we got a suspenseful adventure that kept this reader captivated. Amber Skyze did a great job at setting up a scenario that not only peaks your curiosity, but also keeps you sitting on pins and needles at the end, wondering if our heroine can be saved in time.
What more can a gal want in a short story romance? Sex On the Beach has great location, two sexy characters, a villain and a plot. When mixed with a talented writer, you have the ingredients for a possible best seller.
