Life's a Beach by Jamie K. Schmidt


Sex on the beach has never been so much fun! USA Today bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt kicks off a series set in paradise with an irresistible tale of second chances, secret identities—and a connection that’s too sweet to miss.

When Amelia Parker arrives in Maui, newly single and unemployed, she’s shocked to discover the resort she booked is actually a ramshackle little beachside hotel. At least the scenery is easy on the eyes—as is the toned, laid-back snorkel instructor, “Dude.” After two weeks of sun, serenity, and mind-blowing sex, she even accepts a job as the hotel’s concierge. But what Amelia really wants is to relaunch the place completely. And that means convincing the absentee Wall Street billionaire owner, Samuel Kincaide, to take a chance on her.

Samuel has a plan, too: selling off every last reminder of his former life and chilling all day, every day as his slacker alter ego...Dude. He loves his romps in the ocean, and under the sheets, with the feisty Amelia. If she discovers his true identity, her boundless enthusiasm and innovative business plan will seriously diminish his hammock time. But when Amelia runs into real trouble on the island, he’ll put everything on the line to keep her safe. He just hopes that the woman who’s falling for Dude will feel the same about Samuel.

3.5 steamy stars

This is a fun read – it is undemanding, sexy, romantic, and has an amusing plot line which works just fine. I was pleased to see that it is the first in a series, as there are a number of issues which still need resolving. Some of the side characters are very appealing and give some wonderful humorous moments to the book. As I honeymooned in Maui – and it is currently winter here – I loved being back on a sunny island with a couple of people who cannot resist each other...even if honesty may make a dent in the perfection, and a shadowy figure is planning on spoiling their plans. Looking forward to seeing where this goes next.

Good sunny story.
