A Sweet and sexy story

I enjoyed this book. It's well written, has a decent plot and the steamy scenes are just enough and bot too much. I recommend this author and the series, though I enjoyed her other stories a bit more, but still really liked this book too

I like the series

I've enjoyed the Club Altura series so far, and this novella is no different.

Getting to know Chase a little better was quite interesting. The story felt a bit rushed, I mean who really falls in love over a weeks time... either way it was fun to read.

The characters were well defined for a short story, you got a feel for who they were pretty quickly. They had an instant connection, which of course led to some lovely steamy scenes. I think what I love most about this series is the adventure. To be that free and adventurous all the time would be awesome.

Pretty average

This is a insta-love story and it is definitely sexy.
The narrator, Ryan West, has a nice voice but it was definitely read to us. I am not sure how else to describe it. I could not get lost in the story although it had some really nice get-to-know-you scenes as well as the sexy stuff. Mr. West’s narrative style has pauses. I think the pauses, more than the expression, are what is distracting. Like I wrote, he has a nice voice.
As far as the plot goes, definitely insta-lust to insta-love to tiny break to insta-make-up-lust. I kinda hate it when the woman is instantly turned on by the guy’s looks, erection, voice... like we are all just waiting for some toggle switch to start our nether regions lubricating.
Suuurre.
So this is not an especially well written or even interesting story but it IS a nice diversion. The truth or dare scene, dive scene, massage (yum!) scene are all good. The ending is to far-fetched.

another hot club altura!

Chase is a thrill seeker who has gone on a working vacation to hunt for new materials for his company. Southern boy at heart, he is now living in Cali working for his friend Garrett. What he does not expect is to stumble upon his greatest thrill yet.

Penny is a lawyer, logical through and through. She has been coaxed by her best friend to live a little and finds herself on this vacations testing her own limits. Her motto for this trip is basically what I do on the island, stays on the island....until....she stumbles on the one thing that will irrevocably change her life.

A little romance, a little angst, a southern boy and a whole lot of steam is what you are going to get from this novel. The author creates the characters but Ryan brings them to life. The only minor complaint that I would have is that Ryan did not quite put enough southern in Chase's tone. I love this author, love these stories and fall more in love with Ryan with each book he narrates. 5 Fangs.

Wow! Love this new series!

Would you listen to Solstice Burn again? Why?

Yes! The plot is interesting and the characters are engaging.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that Penny was intelligent, had a career, and was willing to take risks. This is not your typical heroine.

What does Ryan West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ryan West's voice is steady throughout the whole book. His voice gives characters depth and substance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scene where Chase went out of his way to get Penny to move to California. The exchange between Chase and Evan using Garrett's office. This made me chuckle.

Any additional comments?

Solstice Burn is a sexy novella by Kym Grosso. This is the story of Penny, a lawyer from New York and Chase, a biologist from California. Penny and Chase meet while she was vacationing in an adult only resort and he was on an assignment collecting specimens. Their first meeting occurs when she is snorkeling and he comes to her rescue. That one encounter was enough for Chase, and he just had to see his “mermaid” again. Penny, who is normally not the adventurous type, is now looking at life with a new outlook. But can two different people make things work, once the vacation is over?

This novella is the introduction to Kym Grosso’s new series, Club Altura Romance Series. Once again the author creates characters that draw the readers in and a plot that leaves the readers wanting more. I am looking forward to reading her new series!
