It’s all fun and games

I had a simple plan for spring break.

Sun, sand, and a hot guy. Sex on the beach, with no strings attached.

A chance to get rid of this pesky virginity once and for all.

And when I met Tyler McKenna, I thought I had it made.

Until someone gets hurt

But then girls started turning up at Key West landmarks. Girls who looked like me, but with one crucial difference: They’d all been drugged and relieved of their virginity.

The virginity I still have. The virginity Ty refuses to take.

And now I’ve begun to wonder whether there isn’t more to him than meets the eye.

Suddenly, sex on the beach doesn’t sound so good anymore…

My Take on this Journey:

Before You, by Jenna Bennett, part of The Sex on the Beach Series, is a wonderfully fast paced, intrigue-filled ride.  I loved every second of it.  Ms. Bennett does a great job intricately placing all the chess pieces on the board, crossing all the T's, and leaving the reader satisfied when it's all said and done.

Mackenzie Forbes, a Country Music Star on a getaway incognito, has to find a guy that won't sell her out for the top dollar he can get for an exclusive on her to the press.  She has been a star since the age of 16, and is recognizable everywhere she goes.  Mac is hoping to blend in with the rest of the crowd by dying her hair brown and wearing a big floppy hat.  She's trusted the wrong guy before and made the wrong decisions before, and after it got all over the press, she was known to everyone as a slut. Little do they know, that she still has her V-card.

She has decided to take her two best friends, that she trusts above anyone else in her life, on a Spring Break Vacation to Key West for a week of sunning and fun.  The three have already got everything all planned out, including all getting their V-Cards taken, having the ride of a lifetime, and seeing each other minimally so they can have the freedom to enjoy each of their own journey's to the fullest.  Cassie and Quinn refuse to have Mac get them a penthouse, like herself, so they each get their own rooms on a different floor, which Mac has treated them to.

Mac finds herself a guy who looks older than them, with a body full of tattoos, Quinn gets herself an Ivy League guy, and Cassie is left all alone to fin for herself at the local bar.  She see's a really good looking guy, cute as hell, great body, sense of humor, and a year younger than her.  She even makes him show his license to make sure that he is who he says he is.  He finds her beguiling and innocent.  There is just something that hits him, though he doesn't want to get involved with anyone.  Ty asks Cassie if she would like to take a walk, so they walk down the beach, and when they get to the end, there is a young girl, who looks similar to Cassie, with the same build, color hair, and pink clothes.  Coincidence, no one knows.

Ty tells her to call the police, and there begins an ongoing investigation for a serial killer that has been in Key West on prior Spring Breaks, but never caught.  Little by little, Ty becomes overprotective of Cassie, but says he has a girlfriend, when Cassie asks him if he'd like to come up and spend some time with her.  This novella goes full circle.  It is full of suspense, intrigue, mystery, romantic, and exciting.  I loved this whirlwind story of Spring Break, fun times, great banter, and falling in love.  There is so much to this story that I can't write or I would spoil it for the readers.  Suffice to say, that there is a lot of substance to the story, and a great story line that goes full circle.  There isn't a dull moment in this chaste love story, with things not really as they seem.

I think everyone will enjoy this Spring Break Getaway, with the Captivating Ty, with a smile that will leave you drooling and frustrated for Cassie.  I give Before You, by Jenna Bennett, 5 Intriguing, Scary, Suspenseful, Romantic, Love is Where You Least Expect it Stars!!!

I’m just a girl…

I’m a famous country star who’s spent her life cultivating a good girl persona to avoid bad press, but I’ve reached my limit. I’m going away for spring break with my two best friends from college, and we’ve vowed to spend the vacation seeking out fun in the sun—along with some hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only thing I needed was the perfect guy, and then I met Austin Murphy. He might be totally wrong for me, but the tattooed bad boy is hard to resist. When I’m in his arms, everything just feels right.

And I’m just a guy…

I’m just a bartender who lives in Key West, stuck in an endless cycle of boredom. But then Mackenzie Forbes, America’s Sweetheart herself, comes up to me and looks at me with those bright green eyes…and everything changes. She acts like she’s just a normal girl and I’m just a normal guy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My past isn’t pretty, you know. I did what I had to do to survive, and she’d run if she learned the truth about my darkness. But with her, I’m finally realizing what it’s like to be alive. To laugh, live, and be happy.

All good things must come to an end…

New Adult Contemporary Romance 

Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on lies…or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in…


The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted…until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever…
