Publisher's Summary

From the author of Constant Craving comes a hilarious story about a woman who feels obligated to care for everyone, a sexy Marine who wants to make his first love his forever bride, and a fake wedding proposal that changes everything.

Kate Cooper has come home to Paradise Beach to help her mom recover from surgery. After all, who else is going to run the family's tiki bar? A few months on a Florida island won't hurt, even if her memories might.

Then Damien Hastings, her high school crush, walks into the bar one night. He's stunning. Intense. Way more muscular than when they were in high school. And can't take his eyes off Kate.

When Damien finds out Kate needs health insurance, he does what any gentleman would: ask her to marry him. He's going to Syria for a year as a military contractor, and he's loved her for years. It's the least he can do.

They didn't return to fall in love. They didn't expect to have the best sex of their lives. They didn't plan on a farting dog or a fake engagement. But strange and wonderful things happen on Paradise Beach....

All I Know is book one in Tamara Lush's Paradise Beach Series. They are all standalone romantic comedies and can be listened to in any order. If you adore hilarious banter, second chances, and steamy sexytimes, this is the book for you!

Second chance forever love

A very emotionally charged second chance New adult romance. I know this is a stand alone but I wouldn’t mind revisiting these characters.

I found myself tearing up and rooting for this couple. Kate’s character is super likable and relatable and Damien is a sexy marine who just wants to be her hero. You’ll swoon, you’ll cry and cheer. Add in a gassy old pup and you’ve got a good time.

The narrators were great. Easy to listen to and make the audiobook experience very pleasant.

Can I just take a minute and say as soon as I heard the names Remy and Tate I added a full star on. I don’t know if it an actual reference to Riptide or just a happy coincidence but I fangirled.

Sweet, fun and sexy Second Chance to Love!

This was my first Tamara Lush's book, and won't be my last. This is the first book in The Paradise Beach Series. This is a great start to this Series. Kate and Damien's second chance to love story is sweet, fun, and sexy, with a little drama. The secondary characters are also great, and the scenery beautiful! I have read an ARC of this story before, and I enjoyed listening to it. Avie Paige, Paul Stefano did a great job with the narration. Now, I can't wait for the next book in the Series, All I Want, Lauren and Max's story, hopefully with an update to Kate and Damien's story!

Nice sweet romance - Second chance at love

Kate and Damien knew each other from high school and they grew up in the same town. She was his first love and he hers but neither one knew. Some years later, when Damien reappears in her life, he pursues her. Kate has a rare cholesterol illness and when Damien finds out about it and her lack of insurance or funds to pay for extremely expensive medicine and treatments, he asks her to marry him. This will give her the best insurance money can buy and she would be well taken care of should he not return from his upcoming one-year contract job in Syria. I found that I really liked both Kate and Damien.

This was a very enjoyable book and I like Ms. Lush's writing style. The book moved along at a nice pace. Both narrators were very good. The ending of the book is a nice set up for book 2. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A Fun Romance

This is a fun and sweet romance with some steam. I enjoyed that there wasn't a lot of drama and baggage with the characters even though they have a history together. It was refreshing. This is a well written story with nicely developed characters. I'm looking forward to listening to the next installment. The narration wasn't all that. I've listened to several duel narrations and some work while others don't. This duet really didn't work for me. They, Avie Paige and Paul Stefano, have nice voices and read at nice paces but they really need to work on voice changes; especially for the opposite sex. They didn't take away from the story but they also didn't really bring it to life either. Different narration would have made a big difference with this lovely steamy story.

All I know

I enjoyed the actual story of the book. The attraction between Kate and Damien is undeniable, even if they are unable to verbalize their attraction to each other. The premise for the wedding is a clever way for Damien to pop the question. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series because I want to know where their story goes.

*Warning: some scenes are graphic, although they don't detract from the story at all.

I received this audiobook from the author/narrator/publisher in exchange for an honest review Audiobook Obsession.

whirlwind love story

this is an easy read. cute love story. I would have loved to have had more on their relationship and how it turns out. the female narrator did good on her portrayal of the characters. However I couldn't stand the male narrators voice. I felt it should have been sexier, deeper, not so nasally.

Unexpectedly WONDERFUL story, very well narrated!!

All I Know: Paradise Beach by Tamara Lush was an incredible story and the narrator of this Audiobook was PHENOMENAL!!!!! I’m not really a HUGE fan of Audiobooks because I feel like the narrators never tell the story the way I picture it. But, Avie Paige and Paul Stefano SHONE!!!!!! Most of the book was from Kate’s perspective, so most narration was done by Avie Paige.

Kate works in her mother’s Tiki Bar and her mother is battling cancer. Kate runs into Damien, who is temporarily back from the service. He has the idea to marry Kate so she can have health coverage. They both have nagging doubts about one another…and it is actually quite sweet. The story is well-written and the characters are REALLY fleshed out!!! I LOVED the story.

I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Copy of this Audiobook.

Fun Romance

A fun beach listen that is great for the summer. I really enjoy second chance romances and this is was a nice shorter story. I enjoyed watching the characters overcome the past and their insecurities with the legitimacy of their relationship. It does seem a little rushed and I would have liked for the romance and chemistry to be more pronounced or for Kate to have been less doubtful towards Damien. The secondary characters and their issues balanced the story well.

The narrators gave great performances! Both did a fabulous job representing their respective characters and they were well matched for this book.

Second chance at love

They didn't plan on a farting dog or a fake engagement. The author had my attention with this line FYI
The blurb. This was a quick, funny, sweet, quirky listen. I enjoyed the story. The narration was done well, and Kate and Damian were fun to get to know.

Fun little series

I really enjoyed this book. The characters knew and liked each other in high school they just didn’t know they liked each other. I waited to review this book until I listened to both books. This ending is good but it is even better when you listen to the second one. I enjoyed all the characters and the narration was great.

Such a fun book!

So as my first Tamara Lush audiobook, All I Know was lot funnier than I went in expecting. Looking at that cover I was expecting this big dramatic story with high passion and insane drama. Personally, I was tickled pink with the balance that Miss Lush struck with all the feelings. It wasn't too much in any certain way. Kate and Damien had a lot of fun together. They had some if the best humor and passion! I have to mention how much I loved the description that Lush infused into this story. She paints a scene.

Avie Paige and Paul Stefano are both narrators that I haven't listened to previously. I thought they both brought the two characters to like. They both had s bit of playfulness in their voices. Paige also had a softness, this light and airy voice that made her just pleasant to listen too. Really, it's the same with Paul Stefano. Now he's not really light or airy, but he has a strength to his voice. They blended well together.

Paradise Beach

All I know is a great start to a series that I can't wait to see how it ends. Kate and Damien have been in love for years. When you they finally reconnect feelings came back to life with just one look. He is to go to Syria and she to run her family's bar. He loves her but is afraid to tell her, but will take her how ever he can. She loves him and is afraid to believe that he could really have real feeling for her. This is a great listen and Avie Paige and Paul Stefano did a wonderful job with the narration.

A great beach listen!

Take Paradise Beach to a sunny day at the beach and you will not be disappointed! This is my first Tamara Lush story, and I really enjoyed it. Kate and Damien went to school together. After a rumor went viral, things looked down, but even years later, their unrequited attraction still lingers. Now Damien sees his second chance, and he is not going to let it slip by. This is a great second chance romance. I love that they have a history and it comes full circle years later. I love the secondary characters too, especially the mothers! What a great jolt of humor! It's sweet, fun and sexy and we all should have a Damien!

The narration of this flows so well with Avie Paige and Paul Stefano. Each have great voices and give the characters that realistic feel. Paige definitely has a vulnerability in her voice for Kate, but is able to have that love shine through. Stefano has a protective vibe, very sensual and gives you all the feels. I think they compliment each other well and made the listen very enjoyable.
