In the shore town of Sea Breeze, Sadie discovers that fame is nothing in the face of passion. A steamy listen from best-selling author Abbi Glines.
Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island.
When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.
Even though Sadie isn’t impressed by Jax’s fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax, but he fights his attraction: Relationships never work in his world, and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. Yet as the summer stretches on, Jax’s passion leaves him breathless - and Sadie feels like the only source of oxygen.
Can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? One breath at a time, they’re going to find out.....

This book was pretty intensely schmatlzy. I wanted there to be a real villain or a real conflict, or some comedy or something. But mostly there is mooning and lovey doveyness. I did not laugh once during this book and spent a lot of time yelling about people being jerks. And NONE of those jerks had a satisfying comeuppance.
It pretty much reads exactly like a teenage girl's fantasy summer romance, complete with maudlin song lyrics.
I also felt like this book is pretty sex negative for a book with a lot of sex in it. There is some pretty intense slut shaming of one character, and a lot of "oh I'm an innocent virgin who has no problem having orgasms even though I don't know what they are!" Yeah right.
The readers were good, and it was a sweet story, just very one note. I finished it, but I was pretty ready for it to end.
I don't think this book was bad, it was just not for me. If it sounds like it is for you, you should check it out.
