    Fun and funny

    While Life’s a Beach is an entertaining and quick (also HOT) read, there were portions that are a little farfetched. The trouble that comes up is that Samuel plans to sell the hotel but Amelia wants to do a makeover to turn it around. Unfortunately the man that Samuel is trying to sell to is playing hardball to get the price down. While they wait for a better price Samuel agrees to let her do some things to spruce the place up, but mysterious, bad things start happening … and how they handle it just doesn’t ring real for me. Having said that, the rest of the book makes up for it – the sex is very steamy, the characters are interesting, and the rest of the plot is highly entertaining. There were times where I laughed out loud and times that I got a little hot under the collar :), which I consider a definite win! Amelia is a ton of fun – she’s sassy, funny, strong and determined. Samuel is sexy and when he forgets about being overly “Dude-y” he’s fun to be around. He’s got some issues that he needs to work through - some time to try to find a way to be both Dude and Samuel in a way that works. I really loved his brother and the people at the resort, so I’m curious what future books in the series brings. If you are looking for a great beach read in the middle of January, this is definitely worth a try! (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

    Frothy & Frisky

    3/3.5 Stars l Hot Steam Frothy and frisky, this light-hearted contemporary romance set in paradise was just the sort of heated escape this freezing-in-winter reader was hoping for! Happily immersed in Amelia and Samuel’s story, I could feel the sun on my skin and the sand between my toes. It all felt quite naughty, and very nice, to live vicariously through Amelia as she got her groove back one steamy encounter at a time. I appreciated her lack of wallowing—instead seeing the unfortunate events that led up to her fateful trip to Maui as one perfect opportunity to indulge in a fun and freeing sensual adventure. My true love of the novel was, of course, Samuel. His carefree alter ego “Dude” made me smile, and his expert attention to Amelia’s pleasure, well, there was nothing carefree about his wicked bedroom behavior. He delivers and delivers, and I was SO envious! Cute, entertaining and very sexy, LIFE’S A BEACH is an energizing start to a promising new series!

    Funny & Witty

    I really enjoyed this. It was funny and witty. I totally fell in love with the characters. The writing was so good, you really felt like you were right there with everyone. I know this is the start of a series and can't wait to see where it goes from here!

    Laid back story with an irresistible flair.

    Laid back story with an irresistible flair. Ms. Schmidt brought all the warmth of the summer to heat up the winter nights. I received an ARC of Life's a Beach in exchange for an honest review. "Dude" was a great character. Charming, mysterious and sexy as all get out. Amelia is uptight, cynical and needs to relax. She needs to get away. A beautiful island. A sexy stranger. What a way to leave your troubles behind. Loveswept and NetGalley have introduced me to an author that writes stories that are tempting but worth every calorie.
