Rhys Fletcher is not in love with his sister-in-law. That would be a very, very bad idea, and he doesn’t entertain bad ideas. He also doesn’t lie to himself. Both of those things can’t be true, so he’ll do what he’s done since the long-ago night when his brother, Dylan, turned up in an Auckland bar after a brutal rugby match between their two teams, and introduced his new girlfriend - a dark-eyed, much-too-young girl named Zora. He’ll lie. Now, his brother’s gone, and Rhys is back in New Zealand and settling into his new job as the head coach of the Auckland Blues

Just Come Over is book twelve in the Escape to New Zealand series. Rhys has a surprise in store for him, and as he works to figure things out, he finds more than he thought he would get. His story kept me captivated throughout. I loved the relationships this story created. This is a long and enjoyable read, and I enjoyed listening to this narrator as well. Definitely one not to be missed. I received a free copy of this book with no expectations. This opinion is solely mine.

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.

Lovers at Seaside is the ninth book in the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series. Grayson and Parker kept up communication even though they were miles apart. Suddenly Parker is no longer responding. He finds her wallowing in grief, with a plan to carry out. He decides he is not going to leave her side, and what ensues is a tale of heartache, love, devotion, and secrets revealed. This is one of those books that sucks you right in, and I enjoyed listening to this narrator. I definitely recommend it.

Brett Hunter’s life isn’t unicorns and rainbows, and it sure isn’t sparkles. He’s a businessman, a disciplined man, a money man, and if he ever believed in magic, it was a long time ago. He’s not a hero, and he doesn't play one on TV. Oh, and he really doesn't like the water. What’s he doing, then, on an Australian beach in a custom-made Italian suit, up to his waist in the waves and helping a red-haired mermaid save the day?

Sexy as Sin was another great story by this author. Brett and Willow have an undeniable attraction. Their similarities only add to that attraction, and getting to know them as a couple was very enjoyable as was listening to this narrator. I definitely recommend this book.

Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends 12 hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller - that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.
