Blurb: THE STORY

An exotic wedding turns into an erotic escapade for three unlikely couples who find lust—and maybe even love—on the white sands of Belize. Get ready to get wet!

“War of the Sexes”

When wedding planner Sarah McCann learns that the groom’s best friend, Free Lafontaine, intends to save his pal from the mistake of marriage, it’s an all-out war between the sexes. Turns out, the prize could be much more than either of them expected, and this war just may have two winners.

“Sex With the Proper Stranger”

Model Tamiko Sato comes to the wedding as arm-candy for the bride’s deep-in-the-closet uncle. What’s she to do when resort manager Ric Nuñez proves far too tempting? Ric just might be the man who can help her heal the wounds left by past abuse, and open her heart to love.

“Sexy Exes”

Giovanna Moncrieff and her ex, James, mix as well as Italian olive oil and English tonic water. How embarrassing—and exciting!—to find that their passion for each other still burns hot and heavy. Is it possible to find true love the second time around?



Review:
Each of these stories are intertwined yet unique in the issues they deal with. Not only are these love stories, they show characters who grow, learn from past mistakes, and even to accept themselves for who they are.


Susan Lyons is a talented storyteller with a voice like no other author. Her characters will touch not only your heart but your soul too.


In 'War of the Sexes', Sarah and Free act like they want to kill each other at times. The sparks fly from the moment they meet. What got me about these two is their differences in what marriage is all about. They have very different opinions. Will this derail their budding relationship? Read to find out.


In 'Sex With the Proper Stranger', Tamiko and Ric are attracted to each other from the moment their eyes meet. This story was near and dear to my heart. It brings up an issue of abuse in Tamiko's past that will have you cheering for her to let the past go. Ric is not only a patient lover but compassionate and understanding through it all. I will warn you. You might want a Kleenex handy for this story.


In 'Sexy Exes', Giovanna and James have been divorced for quit a few years and can not get along at all. Will they come to blows or will the sexual chemistry they feel for each other spark a fling or a true relationship? You won't be disappointed with these two. I think they finally grow up.


There is another couple, Ellie and Bill, who you will see throughout the story. They reminded me of my grandparents. They show the true meaning of a loving and lasting relationship.


I've given you a little taste as to what I thought of this book. Now, I'm going to tell you to GO BUY THIS BOOK. I found the entire book hard to put down and extremely hot and sexy.

  1. Roberta, thanks so much for the great review! I had a lot of fun writing that book (and a few Hallmark-type teary moments too). I hope readers enjoy it. By the way, I love hearing from readers - they can contact me via my website at http://www.susanlyons.ca.
