Redemption Bay by RaeAnne Thayne

This is an extremely dangerous series. It’s got me contemplating moving to Idaho for crying out loud. Idaho! I mean, just look at that cover image. So serene and majestic, it’s like a Bob Ross painting.

What’s it About?


McKenzie Shaw would do anything for her beloved hometown of Haven Point. It may be small and struggling, but it’s never let her down…unlike gorgeous, infuriating Ben Kilpatrick. He was her childhood hero until he closed his family’s factory, leaving the town’s economy in shambles. Now he’s back—his tech firm is considering opening a local facility. For Haven Point’s sake, McKenzie has to grit her teeth and play nice.

What could a town filled with painful memories ever offer Ben? He left Haven Point behind years ago, for good reason. Yet seeing the town through the eyes of McKenzie—its fiery young mayor—he suddenly has his answer. If only he can resolve the animosity crackling between them, Ben may have found the place where he can build ties and find healing…a place where love arrives when it’s least expected.

First Impressions

Unbeknownst to me before starting this book, it’s actually the second novel in the Haven Point series, and I had fortuitously already read book one a few months ago. Gotta love when not having a plan comes together so well! From the few details I remembered of the first book, I recall it took place in an adorably beautiful small town and was an incredibly sweet read. I’m happy to say that this second book definitely followed in the footsteps of the first. Not really a sexy or suspenseful read, but you’ll walk away feeling content with this cutesy novel.


The Joys of Small Town Living

I must say, this idyllic Idaho town was reminiscent of Stars Hollow in Gilmore Girls, specifically in regards to its small town charm. You also can’t help but love all of the adorably nosy townsfolk who get all up in your business. One thing’s for sure, this town and its inhabitants are definitely brimming with personality! Especially when a man returns to Haven Point that everyone blames for the town’s economic downfall. Can they forgive him for his past mistakes, or will they continue to hold a grudge?


A Complicated Love Tale

An interesting love story develops between Ben and McKenzie, which is heavily influenced by past perceptions and current dilemmas. McKenzie loves this town more than anything, and sees Ben as the reason for it’s present financial problems. She’s set on making him feel as unwelcome as possible, but when she discovers that he has the ability to turn the town’s misfortunes around, getting a little close to him seems like the only answer.


As for Ben, Haven Point holds nothing but painful memories he’s trying to put behind him. Work is the only thing that brings him to town, and after that he has no intention to return again or bring his business here. But when the sexy mayor next door spends more time with him, leaving is the last thing on his mind.

Series: Haven Point, book 2.You don’t really have to read the first one, but that’s definitely a good Christmas romance.

Should you read it? It’s not one you have to rush out and read right this very minute, but it’s definitely a sweet and relaxing read. Good for the beach!

Smut Level: No sex to speak of, but a few smooch sessions here and there.

The Scoundrel and the Debutante by Julia London

For a historical romance this book is red hot! These two lovebirds go at it multiple times. Even in a bathtub!

What’s it About? 


The dust of the Cabot sisters’ shocking plans to rescue their family from certain ruin may have settled, but Prudence Cabot is left standing in the rubble of scandal. Now regarded as an unsuitable bride, she’s tainted among the ton. Yet this unwilling wallflower is ripe for her own adventure. And when an irresistibly sexy American stranger on a desperate mission enlists her help, she simply can’t deny the temptation.

The fate of Roan Matheson’s family depends on how quickly he can find his runaway sister and persuade her to return to her betrothed. Scouring the rustic English countryside with the sensually wicked Prudence at his side—and in his bed—he’s out of his element. But once Roan has a taste of the sizzling passion that can lead to forever, he must choose between his heart’s obligations and its forbidden desires.

First Impressions

Prudence believes she is doomed to never find a good marriage match due to her frivolous sisters who landed their husbands in rather unconventional ways. This book made me realize that, according to Victorian England era principles, I am a full on spinster. Prudence thought that being 22 and single was bad? I’ve got a few years on ya sista! Anywho, Prudence manages to meet a dashing American, and decides to accompany him in a stagecoach whilst he searches for his sister. They encounter many a misadventure together, and what with all the bouncing and wheel breaking going on, a romance quickly develops between the two travelers.



This is the third book in the Cabot Sisters series, and I hadn’t read the other two before starting this one. For the majority of the novel, I really thought this could be read as a stand-alone. I had read the synopses of the first two novels, and thought I had a pretty good idea of who was who.


However, I must say I was slightly confused when Prudence is reunited with her sisters at the end of the book. They’re astonished at her lack of propriety in traveling alone with a single man, without a chaperone in sight. Not to mention some of the other sexy antics the two got involved in, even though it was all done in the name of love. But it sounded like her sisters haven’t exactly played by the rules when it comes to “landing” a husband, so their shock and disapproval sort of seemed a bit hypocritical to me. That being said, having not read the other books in the series I feel hesitant to call them out completely.

Series: Cabot Sisters, book 3. I’d probably recommend reading them in order.

Should you read it? It was a decent historical read. Prudence and Roan are certain of their love for each other, but once they are reunited with her family, they start to question the difference between love and infatuation. Will their love fade once things settle back to normal after the excitement from the road? You’ll just have to read to find out!

Smut Level: I’m used to historical romances being on the tamer side, but my eyes definitely got wide in a few places. This is no Jane Austen romance!

Beneath the Stetson by Janice Maynard

I’m starting to notice a theme with audiobooks. If there is ever a single parent with a child/children involved, 9 times out of 10 the kid is my favorite character. They just always have so much childish enthusiasm I can’t help but love ’em!

What’s it About?beneath

Millionaire rancher Gil Addison does not need Bailey Collins. She is far from the sweet homemaker he thought he wanted. But she is a beautiful woman with a badge, hot on the heels of a kidnapper in Gil’s club. And Gil is hot for her!

Bailey can’t let her career get sidetracked by the cowboy and his son. She’s here to do a job, not find a family. Bailey won’t stop till she gets her man in cuffs…. Trouble is, Gil won’t stop till he gets this woman in his bed!

First Impressions

So, this is the first time I read any book from this series, and I’ll be the first to admit, I was a bit lost. Sure, I understood the overall gist of the plot, but I couldn’t help but feel as though I came into a story half-way through its telling. Bailey is in town investigating a kidnapping, where the person who was kidnapped has been found, but he has no memory. This was obviously a carry-over plot from a previous novel, and trying to learn who all of these characters were was tough enough. Add in the fact that this kidnapping story-line never reaches a resolution by the end of this novel, and my overall sense of confusion never really went away.



Alright, so that’s the mystery aspect of the novel. Let’s focus on the romantic side of things. With this too I felt like I really missed the start of their infatuation, which must have come about in a previous novel. You can tell that Gil and Bailey have some unresolved sexual tension which commenced when Bailey suspected him of being somehow involved in this kidnapping. Well, it seems they were more than ready to release some of that tension!


What do you get when you combine a female law enforcement officer with a stetson-wearing rancher in an enclosed office space with a lock on the door? A damn sexy time! These two have some chemistry, and it’s positively delicious to watch it all unfold. They are dealing with some extra anxiety of what will happen when the case is solved and Bailey must return to her work in Dallas. They want to make the most of the time they have together…by being naked.

Series: Texas Cattleman’s Club: A Missing Mogul, book 8. Was I intrigued enough to continue on with this series? Meh, not really. Was I intrigued enough to go back to the beginning and see how it all began? Meh, not really.

Should you read it? I’m sure if you were already a fan of the series it’d be an enjoyable read, especially seeing as there’s an interesting twist at the end. Gil’s son is also amazingly adorable. But seeing as we’re 8 books in it’s just too much work for me to go back and start reading from the beginning.

Smut Level: Their first night together was explained in some pretty exquisite detail. We had a light/dark theme at play where her naked body was bathed in moonlight, whereas his was only slightly evident through the darkness. Delightful imagery.

Just One of the Guys by Kristan Higgins

I’m always surprised whenever I come across a female lead who is more sarcastic than I am. I guess I just never thought that was possible. It’s kind of terrifying.

What’s it About? 


Being one of the guys isn’t all it’s cracked up to be…So when journalist Chastity O’Neill returns to her hometown, she decides it’s time to start working on some of those feminine wiles. Two tiny problems: #1—she’s five feet eleven inches of rock-solid girl power, and #2—she’s cursed with four alpha-male older brothers.

While doing a story on local heroes, she meets a hunky doctor and things start to look up. Now there’s only one problem: Trevor Meade, her first love and the one man she’s never quite gotten over—although he seems to have gotten over her just fine. Yet the more time she spends with Dr. Perfect, the better Trevor looks. But even with the in-your-face competition, the irresistible Trevor just can’t seem to see Chastity as anything more than just one of the guys…

First Impressions

So my absolute first impression on finishing this novel was that it was just too long! But I’ll get into the details of that later on. When it first started I was actually extremely entertained by Chastity’s sass and personality. I think if I had read it on my Kindle I would have been annoyed earlier on with so much sarcasm, but the audiobook narrator did a good job with her inflection to bring forth a decent amount of humor. However, it was difficult at times to distinguish when Chastity was just thinking a snarky or sarcastic comment, and when she actually said it out loud. I guess that’s the give and take of an audiobook!


As the story progressed, I did unfortunately become increasingly frustrated with Chastity, which probably wasn’t entirely fair. However, she gave in to one of my biggest pet peeves and fears when it comes to relationships: settling. Chastity has loved Trevor since the age of 10. They were together for about 72 hours in college, but the timing never really worked out, and neither shared their true feelings with each other. Trevor feared what would happen if things didn’t work out between them, but whereas Chastity thought his fear stemmed from possibly losing touch with her family, it actually had to do with his fear of losing her as a friend.


Chastity desperately wants to get her mind off of Trevor by moving on with someone else, and is so seemingly obsessed with marriage and babies that she starts dating Ryan. He’s a man who is ostensibly perfect on paper: surgeon, good looks, but they have so unbelievably little in common. The sex is just ok, he doesn’t really like her dog, his parents are kind of out there, and there are a few too many implications that he’s a dick to work with. And yet, Chastity is so determined to get married that she continues having a relationship with him to the point where she accepts his marriage proposal, even though her heart isn’t in it. Personally, I feel like sometimes it’s better to be single than to settle with someone you can’t really connect with. I mean, she still has a big loving family for support, so she isn’t totally alone!


Title Play

Something I really did enjoy about this book, other than the fact that Trevor was a sexy ass fireman, was a play on the title. Throughout the novel, we see multiple examples of how Chastity is “just one of the guys”. She loves baseball, shooting pool, and hanging out with her dad, four brothers, and Trevor. Yet, towards the end of the novel, as Chastity is once again lamenting over the fact that she isn’t with Trevor and he’s with someone else, she admits that for years she’s  been forcing herself to just view Trevor as “one of the guys”. It helped to make the pain over the fact that they weren’t a couple a bit less daunting. Haha, see what they did there? They were both “just one of the guys”! Clever.


*A copy of this audiobook was provided by Recorded Books for an honest review*

Series: No

Should you read it? There’s a decent amount of humor, although after a while it was almost a tad forced. I think if the book had been 100 pages shorter it would have been vastly improved. As it stands, her longing for Trevor whilst dating Ryan just seemed to drag on for way too long.

Smut Level: At one point, Trevor and Chastity hook up while they are both dating other people, and they proceed to go back to their significant others after their love-making. Looks like their respective moral compasses weren’t always pointing north. Overall, sex scenes weren’t graphic at all.

Snow Angel Cove by RaeAnne Thayne

Oh well if that doesn’t have all the magical wonderfulness of a Hallmark Christmas special I just don’t know what does.

What’s it About? 

snow angel

Nothing short of a miracle can restore Eliza Hayward’s Christmas cheer. The job she pinned her dreams on has gone up in smoke—literally—and now she’s stuck in an unfamiliar, if breathtaking, small town. Precariously close to being destitute, Eliza needs a hero, but she’s not expecting one who almost runs her down with his car!

Rescuing Eliza is pure instinct for tech genius Aidan Caine. At first, putting the renovation of his lakeside guest lodge in Eliza’s hands assuages his guilt—until he sees how quickly he could fall for her. Having focused solely on his business for years, he never knew what his life was missing before Eliza, but now he’s willing to risk his heart on a yuletide romance that could lead to forever.

First Impressions

If you ever have the occasion to read this book you must do so during the month of December, with a cup of hot cocoa in your hand, and an apple cinammon candle burning somewhere in your vicinity. Not gonna lie, the fact that I listened to this book a few months ago during a road trip in Florida sort of took away from the magic of the story. And what a magical story it was, filled with all the warm and fuzzies for your holiday cheer. Was it a bit cheesy and unbelievable? Of course! But isn’t that sort of a requirement for holiday romances?


An Interesting Start

Eliza hasn’t had the best welcome to town. The Inn where she was supposed to work burned down, leaving her with no job, and shortly thereafter she is hit by a car. Talk about a rough couple of hours! But alas, there is always a silver lining to even the most seemingly unfortunate of circumstances. The man who hit her with his car, Aidan, is a local geeky millionaire Adonis who offers her a housekeeping position in his home in preparation for his large family visiting him during the holidays.


The beginning of the novel is very interesting, as Eliza must make important decisions for both her and her daughter after so many calamities befall them so quickly. The end is also very sweet and charming when Aidan’s family finally arrives for the holidays. Unfortunately there’s a rather large part in the middle that kind of drags.

So Much to Think About

Eliza and Aidan both have their secrets, as well as special moments of sharing them with each other. However, I felt like the majority of the book was spent with them thinking about each other rather than actually spending any alone time together. They also spend time thinking about other things going on in their lives, and what has already happened in the past, that you sort of have to remind yourself that a romance is supposed to be blossoming between them.



*An audiobook was provided by Recorded Books for an honest review*

Series: Haven Point, book 1.

Should you read it? The best part of the book was Eliza’s daughter, Maddie, and the narrator of the audiobook did a great job making her childish enthusiasm shine through to the point where you couldn’t help but smile. The romance side of the story could use some work, but it’s a sweet book to read during the holidays.

Smut Level: Considering Eliza and Aidan are barely alone together, the most we see are a few kisses.

His Ring is Not Enough by Maisey Yates

I didn’t realize until about half-way through this book that the thing was set in Greece. Seriously people! There’s nothing wrong with giving away the setting in the first few pages or so, and it can definitely lessen the confusion of your readers. The main characters kept mentioning about returning home to the island, and I was like, “But which one?? The world is full of them!!”

What’s it About? his ring

After “I do…” Ajax Kouros had a plan. Being jilted at the altar? Not part of it–especially when facing a thousand guests and one hundred reporters. His company’s future depends on marrying a Holt, and when his bride’s sister steps up to the altar, can he say no? Leah Holt grew up watching her beautiful socialite sister hang on Ajax’s arm. Now she has the chance to stand in the spotlight and save her family’s fortune. But saying “I do” is only the beginning, and Leah soon realizes that the man she married is far more complex and distracting than the boy of her childhood fantasies…

First Impressions

I’ll admit, the synopsis definitely drew me in. But after the first few pages I realized the entire predicament behind the plot could have been avoided very easily. You see, Leah’s father is a wealthy business owner who, for some reason, set it up long ago that the running of his company would pass to the husband of whichever daughter married first. When Leah’s sister abandons Ajax, the ideal male specimen to run the company, to run away with his sworn enemy, Leah steps up to the altar to ensure that her father’s business doesn’t fall into the hands of a tyrant. Gee, maybe if your father hadn’t been so intent on the business being run by a MAN, and had let one of his daughters with a vagina inherit the business we wouldn’t be in such a pickle, now would we? We also wouldn’t have a book, but still!


Characters with Some Issues

Goodness gracious, I thought I had confidence issues! Leah takes the idea of looking down on yourself to a whole new level of concerning. She’s always seen herself as second best to her sister, and now that Ajax has basically “settled” for the less beautiful of the Holt sisters, Leah’s self-image kind of takes a beating. But you know what?! I feel like even if you’re like me, and you usually find something to critique about your appearance, every once in a while you have that opportunity to get dressed up, where your hair looks just right, somehow you succeed in getting that smokey eye look, and when you finally look at the full package in the mirror you can’t help but admit to yourself, “Damn, I look good!” You can’t be down on yourself 24/7!


As for Ajax, he’s got his own set of problems. He had a rough childhood, and is constantly fearful that he’ll lose control and end up just like his criminal father. At first, there was a really interesting dynamic back and forth between Leah and Ajax, where she tries to convince him that he’s a good person, and he tries to help her see how desirable she is. After a while though, they were literally having the same conversation over and over again, and neither wanted to let up on their self-image issues. Towards the end I remember thinking, “How are they still arguing about this?!”


Maintaining Control

Ajax grew up in an environment where drugs and women were readily available at the drop of your panties, and one night he kind of blacked out to the point where he almost raped a girl. But then he snapped out of it, and ended up rescuing her from the life his father had brought her into. Hurray for Ajax. However, he’s always worried that if he gives into his passion for Leah, he’ll lose control all over again. So he insists on maintaining that control by forbidding Leah to touch him during sex.

no touch

At first I wanted to tell the guy to just lay off it and relax already, but then I thought about it for a minute. Basically, in order to ensure that she doesn’t touch him, he wants to tie her up so he can focus all of his attention on her alone, and pleasure her over and over again until she bursts from a pleasure overload. Yeah, I don’t really see a problem here. If the guy can also manage to do the dishes, I’d give him a go.


*An audio book was provided by Recorded Books for an honest review*

Series: Holt Sisters, book 1. I was really disappointed we didn’t learn more about Leah’s sister Rachel, and her motivation behind leaving Ajax at the altar. I mean, obviously they didn’t have an emotional connection, but I want to know why she chose his sworn enemy instead. Maybe more will be revealed in book 2.

Should you read it? It was okay. An interesting premise for sure, even if the reasoning behind it was kind of ridiculous. I do feel like the same argument was on repeat for a large portion of the novel.

Smut Level: She’s a virgin. He hasn’t had sex in 18 years. Things are bound to get freaky!

Guest Post of Awesomeness

Hello, Romance Novels for the Beach! I’m really excited about my new motorcycle club series called Dirty Eleven with Carina Press, and I love to geek out on story settings. So what better way to celebrate the launch of the first book in the series, Riding Dirty, than with a virtual road trip? Let’s go on a wild ride with Cole and Mia, the sexually adventurous couple from this red-hot romantic suspense story. We’ll visit some of the spots where they have steamy make-out sessions and secret rendezvous.

riding dirtyLadies, start your engines!

Riding Dirty is set in Southern California’s Coachella Valley. The series revolves around the Dirty Eleven Motorcycle Club, an outlaw biker gang based in a dusty desert town called Indio.

Our first stop is Lake Cahuilla, which sits on the outskirts of Indio. Cole and Mia meet here for an illicit semipublic hookup. He’s her client, a criminal informant just released from prison and completely off-limits. She’s his psychologist, sexy and smart and irresistible. He’s wearing an ankle monitor; she’s wearing thigh-high stockings. They’re a match made in erotic romance heaven.

Indio is known for date palms, so it’s fitting that Cole and Mia’s next date takes place at a date farm. They get down and dirty in the outdoor gardens afterhours. As you do.



Our next stop is the Salton Sea, the largest body of water in California. This is a fascinating wildlife area and an ecological disaster on the brink of collapse. Cole and Mia don’t have much time for birdwatching or pondering environmental issues. They pass on through and head to Slab City, an off-grid trailer park near the Coachella Canal. Cole spent several formative years of his childhood in this strange, stark wasteland.


slabIt’s not all tumbleweeds and sand dunes in the valley, though. There’s a hidden oasis at the edge of the Santa Rosa Mountains called Desert Hot Springs. Cole and Mia escape to a private resort for an adults-only, clothing-optional getaway. They wash off the road dust and get frisky in the outdoor pool.

Taking the Heat by Victoria Dahl

A romance novel featuring a sexy librarian. Seems so cliché, doesn’t it? Well did I mention that this librarian happens to be male!? Let’s push some gender stereotypes people!!

What’s it About? 

taking the heat

All revved up for bright lights and steamy nights, writer Veronica Chandler chased her dreams to New York City. When she hit a dead-end, reality sent her back home to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Saving her pride and her new gig—writing a relationship advice column!—requires some faking. No one can know the truth about her big-city flop or her nonexistent sex life. But the town’s irresistibly rugged librarian is determined to figure her out… and give her hands-on lessons in every wicked thing she wants to know. Gabe MacKenzie’s heart might be in Wyoming, but secretly his future’s tied up in his family’s Manhattan legacy. Getting down and dirty with Veronica is supposed to give him a few memorable nights—not complicate his plans. But the thing about heat this scorching is there’s just no going back… and it might be too hot for either of them to take.

First Impressions

Not only do we have a male librarian, but we also have a female virgin in her 20s. Never would have thought those 2 things could exist within a 5 mile radius. Something I absolutely loved about this book was the characters. They felt so real! Both Gabe and Veronica would get nervous flirting with each other, with excessive blushing on both sides. How adorable! And then when Gabe got all fidgety asking if she wanted to go out to dinner with him, well I just about had a coronary. So refreshing to have 2 characters who act like normal, not so confident people when communicating with the opposite sex. Gabe wasn’t some dominant alpha male who told her she’d be going to dinner with him, he asked like a gentleman. However, his shy persona sort of took flight once they got into the bedroom.


Let’s Get to the Good Stuff

Veronica might be a virgin, but it definitely isn’t for a lack of trying. At this point in her life, she just wants to get it over with! How can she be an advice columnist who talks to people about sex when she’s never had any of her own? Enter Gabe. When he finds out her secret he’s more than happy to help her out with her little problem, but he’s intent on making sure she enjoys it. Won’t fight ya on that one buddy. This man is definitely in his element once they get naked, and he’s also a bit of a dirty talker. Now he’s a dirty talkin’ sexy librarian? I don’t know if I can handle this much perfection in a man. The scenes between these two were off the charts hot. A tad disappointed they never did it in the stacks of the library, but that probably would have been even more cliché than necessary.


A Level of Seriousness

The relationship between Gabe and Veronica is toe-curling adorable, but there are also quite a few dramatic elements placed throughout the book as well. At one point a reader submits a letter to her column stating that he’s contemplating suicide. Veronica also has a strained relationship with her father, not to mention an asshole of an ex stepbrother.

Gabe also has a secret of his own in that he’s only in town for one year before he plans to move back to New York to take over the family business, even though he’d rather stay to enjoy the quiet of Wyoming. Hmm, maybe you should ask your advice columnist girlfriend how to handle that one. An identifiable theme throughout this entire novel was the fear of being your true self, and thereby a disappointment to others. I think this is something which most of us can relate to. This theme, combined with the down-to-earth characters, makes for a really enjoyable read.


*A copy of this book was provided for an honest review*

Series: Jackson: Girls’ Night Out, book 3. I didn’t read books 1 or 2, and had no trouble following the storyline. That being said, I might have to go back and read the first 2, just because I loved this book so much.

Should you read it? Yes! It’s a sexy read, but also has a great underlying message of following your dreams, even if it’s not what other people had hoped for you. Do what makes you happy!

Smut Level: Loved that Gabe waited a while before doing the deed with Veronica. He wanted to make sure she was squirming for it. Oh…my!
