Contemporary Romance- Anthology Jan. 5th, 2010
Susan Lyons has written a delicious anthology which will be sure to be a rare treat for winter readers who long for a hot, exotic get away! Unlike many anthologies that are completely separate stories or that are loosely connected, I was happily surprised to find this novel has a cast of characters that closely interplay with each other. This book tells the romances of 3 couples that come together for a wedding on a resort in Belize . Their stories are intrinsically intertwined and often affect the outcome of the next story. It was fun to read the different points of view on the same incident and how one event caused varying outcomes. Each story can be read separated but I highly recommend reading them in order to fully appreciate them!
The first story is concerns the exhausted wedding planner, Sarah. All her plans for the wedding are running smoothly. So she decides to take a much need break and have a fling. But she discovers Free, her hot fling is the best man! To make matters worse Free is determined to break up the wedding. Both main characters are at odds with each other and the sparks fly!
In the 2nd story super model Tamiko hides a past of pain and vulnerability while she `dates' a famous writer, Zane. However, it is all an act because Zane is secretly gay. When Zane notices her attraction to Ric, the resort owner, he tries to act as matchmaker. But Ric is wary, not only does he have his reputation, (he doesn't want to get involved with a guest) but he has been burned by his 1st wife. Plus Tamiko's past makes it difficult for her to have a healthy relationship. Can they overcome these obstacles to find love?
In the final installment, divorced parents of the bride reunite for their daughter's wedding. James and Giovanna are still attracted to each other but misunderstanding and a tempestuous relationship crumbled their marriage. This was a wonderful story because the maturity of each of the characters made for a deep read. Both characters never realized their true potential or looked to really understand the other person. Each must realize their past mistakes before their love can be fully realized.
This book has it all. I loved the feeling of being in a lush and beautiful resort. Each story builds on the other and there is something for every reader. As each relationship and character is revealed I grew more invested in their lives and absorbed with their romance. There was never a dull moment in the fast-paced and very racy read!

"Sex With the Proper Stranger". Part of the wedding party, he brings model Tamiko Sato as his companion in Belize, but she fears she is colder than a polar icecap as she cannot turn on her mate; unaware he is gay. She revises her estimate of her equatorial torrid libido after meeting resort owner, Ric Nunez.
"Sexy Exes." Parents of the bride, Giovanna and James Moncrieff are still at tropical love and tundra war with one another; as they have been for decades.
These three erotic interrelated romances that tie back to the wedding, lives up to its title of Sex on the Beach as the gala lead to hot sex and cold relationships outside of B and B (beach and bed). Although entertaining, the novella format limits character development to not much more than their libido. Still fans will enjoy attending the hottest wedding of the season; just bring your significant other with you.
In WAR OF THE SEXES, the groom's best friend, Free Lafontaine, vows to do whatever he has to in order to save Danny from slipping that marriage noose over his head. Wedding planner Sarah McCann wholeheartedly believes in love and is convinced that Danny and Bella are the real deal. The last thing she needs is to become involved with someone who has such a negative view on marriage and love but there's no denying the atmosphere, physical attraction and a little Sex on the Beach can be very seductive. That doesn't change the fact that they're battling it out over whether or not this wedding will occur - and they're both determined to win.
In SEX WITH THE PROPER STRANGER, up and coming model Tamiko Sato accompanies the bride's uncle Zane to Belize for the wedding. She's posing as his date for the event but in reality they're just very good friends. Tamiko has no interest in forming a romantic relationship with any man. Her own experience has left her `damaged,' but there's something very tempting about resort owner Rick Nuñez and with a little unexpected help from Zane, she just may get the opportunity to find out just how satisfying sex with a caring and loving man can be. If only she could remain in Belize indefinitely....
In SEXY EXES, in spite of the wedding planner's best efforts to keep Bella's divorced parents, Giovanna and James, separated they keep running into each other. Giovanna's all glitz and glamour while James is the very epitome of a stuffy British professor. That doesn't stop the sparks from flying whenever they're within sight of each other. The ink may be dry on the divorce papers but the passion between Giovanna and James is far from over. Is it possible they can come to grips with their differences and the mistakes they made to find true love again?
When you think of SEX ON THE BEACH you tend to think of sand in all those undesirable crevices, but thanks to Susan Lyons' newest release sand is the last thing on your mind. Instead, think - secret rendezvous', sexy exotic drinks, adventure and of course, plenty of scorching sex. While the premise behind this anthology is a tropical wedding, it's the wedding guests' antics and hook-ups that draw the readers' interest and keep you eagerly turning pages to find out all the nitty gritty details. I loved how easily each story transitions into the next one and how the author allows the readers to get a new perspective on the characters and their situations. The Everleighs advice on how they've maintained such a happy marriage for sixty years is insightful, amusing, and proved to be a huge help in each of these stories. Susan Lyons' exceeded my expectations with SEX ON THE BEACH and I must say I eagerly anticipate her next release.
