Sex, Sin and Surf

Lauren Fraser provides readers with one hot holiday fling. Celeste is a fantastically modern heroine and an appealing character. I really enjoyed how she and her friends interacted. There is nothing like the camaraderie and witty banter between close female friends. Ben is a fabulous hero, so young and vibrant; so vital and animated yet he is so conflicted and angry. While I wanted to take away his hurt I felt nothing remotely like maternal feelings toward him. The sexual chemistry in this story was off the charts. the spark between these two comes alive as quickly as their attraction and the connection is tangible. I must say that his unique body piercing has inspired my own fantasies. The descriptions of the setting of this story added to the plot and I felt as if I were along on the beach with the cast of characters, but at a much more affordable price. I'd love to see Ben keep his promise and set up Celeste's friends as those two ladies had personalities I'd love to see on the pages again. This author is definitely going on my must-read list. I know that this particular story will be one I read again and again.
