Can an heiress get down and dirty with a local lifeguard…for longer than one night?
When a hippie girl with a free spirit grows up in an “old money” conservative family, arguments are sure to ensue. Right before her thirtieth birthday, Sage’s father, sick of her bohemian lifestyle, gives her an ultimatum – tear down The Surf Shack in Huntington Beach and build a five-star restaurant, or lose her trust fund AND his multi-billion dollar company.
Jax, the owner of The Surf Shack, has vowed to keep his late father’s shop running while juggling his full-time job as a beach lifeguard…even if the hot little thing in a business suit tempts him with her conflicting personalities. Is she a business shark in a designer suit? Or a Mother Earth loving hippie who wants to get dirty with him?
Ultimately, they’ll have to decide what’s worth fighting for: love or legacy.
Beach Bum Billion Heiress was a sweet, hot read. During the first chapter I was ready to write Sage off because I’m sick of doormat heroines but as I kept going and dug in to the story I came to appreciate her more. Her father gives her an ultimatum: go to California and purchase a property which she is to then turn around to make it a successful business. If she fails to do this she will be disinherited.
Cue eyeroll and everything, right? Yeah but what I liked most about Beach Bum Billion Heiress is that Sage doesn’t go in there all cutthroat and threatening. This was a laidback, relaxed kind of romance and I loved it all the more because of that. It could have been cliched but it wasn’t. Sage and Jax were great characters. They were easy to root for and what’s better, I could understand and respect both of their reasons for behaving the way they did.
Marika Ray created a wonderfully sexy beach read that will make you at turns, hot & bothered and soft & mushy inside. Definitely on your summer reading list!
Marika Ray spends her time behind a computer crafting stories, walking the beaches of southern California scoping out the lifeguards, and making healthy food for her kids and husband whether they like it or not. Prior to writing novels, Marika held various jobs in the finance industry, with private start-up companies, and then in health & fitness. Cats may have nine lives, but Marika believes everyone should have nine careers to keep things spicy.
Marika enjoys writing all types of fiction novels, based on what inspires her. Right now she’s working on stand-alone romances in the Beach Squad series, all about California lifeguards and their equally fearless women. Moderate suspense, a splash of humor, and lots of steamy romance…all with the beautiful ocean as a relaxing backdrop!
