About my book:

Sparks fly when Sam meets Matt at a kiteboarding tournament in Mystic, Connecticut, where the sizzling connection between them is almost combustible.

Samantha Jones moved to Cape Cod at the age of ten, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Between wrangling first graders and caring for her aging grandmother, she doesn’t have time for serious relationships. Every free moment is spent on the water, and the money from the sponsorships doesn’t hurt.

Up until recently, Matthew Daniels had it all: great job, cool apartment in the heart of San Francisco, and a girlfriend he was ready to take the next step with. Now, all that’s left is the job at the up and coming kiteboard brand. He’s hoping a fresh start on the East coast – back with all of his college buddies – will be the hard reset he needs to get his life back on track. What he doesn’t anticipate is the unforgettable woman he meets in Mystic.

Matt's Mystic Connection is part of the Hot Hunks Steamy Romance series, where each story is a standalone romance by a different author, all based on a similar theme.

Beach Read Book Review: Second Chances in Laguna, by Claire Marti

 About the book:

Swearing off men for a year would work, right? Not so much...

After being ditched at the altar, the last thing Sophie Barnes needs is a player in her life. She moved to Laguna Beach to start over and write a wildly successful novel, not become involved with her sexy new landlord, Nicholas Morgan. Besides, her starting-over plan involves swearing off men for a year. Doesn't it?

Nick Morgan didn’t get his player reputation by accident––truthfully, the successful architect avoids intimacy like it’s his job. But when he meets his new tenant, Sophie, who is gorgeous, guarded, and wants nothing to do with him, he falls hard and fast. Something about her makes Nick want to break down her walls - and his own.

Will giving into temptation give them a second chance at love, or be an emotional wrecking ball to the heart?

 My Review:

This re-released novel was the author's original debut romance, and as such, it's not as "perfect" as her later works. But it's still so much fun. Nick and Sophie. Sophie and Nick. What a great couple they make! She's all "I'm never gonna date again" and he's all "I'm never gonna settle down" - and then Fate steps in to introduce them to each other.

Is this a perfect romance novel? Sorry, Ms. Marti, but no. Is this a really fun, fast, keeps-you-turning-pages beach read? Oh heck yeah!!!

If you're looking for your next day at the beach romance read, grab this and enjoy. And then go click-to-buy one of Marti's Hotel King or Pacific Vista romance reads and keep enjoying her fun characters who live for the moment and follow their dreams. Because isn't that really the point of a romance novel? To go for it and follow wherever your dreams may lead? Right, Right!! Who gets to do that in real life?

And THAT'S why I totally love reading romance!!!

Follow your dreams!

And totally recommend this book, and this series, and this author! Happy Summer Reading!
