What a sweet and incredibly hot story!! What girl doesn’t want to have a hot fling on spring break? I can imagine that it’s hard for a country singing star to go away for a little R & R and pick up a guy for some no-strings-attached sex. But that’s McKenzie’s goal: hide her identity and find a guy to take her virginity. When she see hot bartender, Austin, she knows she’s found her guy. But instead of just a fling, they fall hard for each other. This is the perfect book to read while sitting on the beach with an umbrella drink in your hand. It’s short, sweet, super sexy and totally entertaining.

Beyond Me by Jennifer Probst

“Stay with me tonight, Quinn,” he whispered. “Sleep in my bed and let me fuck you for hours, until we don’t care about anything anymore.”

Sex, alcohol, fried food, and rest. I’d reached nirvana.

I love Jennifer Probst and this is another hit for her!! This is the story of Quinn, an over-schooled and over-worked college student looking for a hot fling on spring break. At a party she meets James, a gorgeous rich kid who, she thinks, has it all. But behind the rich kid mask is a guy trying to find his way. Quinn is just looking for a good time, and hopefully some orgasms. But after a few days together, they find themselves having strong feelings for each other. And all is well until his friends ruin everything…

This book is perfect if you want a sweet, short, super sexy read. The sex and the dirty talk is off the charts!!!

This novella is a little different than the others in the Sex on the Beach Series. While the others HAWT and focused on the romances, this one is more of a mystery/suspense story. The writing is fantastic and I love how the author talks about the crazy history of Key West. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it even though it went in a different direction than I was expecting.

(I received a copy of this compilation from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.)
