About a hundred years ago William Cates founded a fishing village on the SW Florida Gulf Coast called Barefoot William. A little later Evan Saunders founded Saunders Shores next to Barefoot William. Today Saunder Shores is a high end resort for the wealthy. Barefoot William has amusement park rides and inexpensive gift shops. The two families have disliked each other ever since. Today Shaye Cates (age 31) manages the business end of Barefoot William. Trace Saunders (age 32) manages Saunders Shores. Trace is well dressed and works in a glitzy office. Shaye wears flip flops and shorts and conducts business from her beach chair on the sand.
The shops in Barefoot William are having financial problems. To boost sales, Shaye wants to host a volleyball pro/am tournament over the July 4th weekend. She needs some of the beach in Saunders Shores. She asks Trace to participate. Trace makes things difficult and wants something in return.
Side stories involve Nicole a jewelry designer renting store space from Shaye and Shaye's cousin Kai. Kai is a handyman who keeps everything working in Barefoot William. Sophie Saunders is an introverted book worm who has a crush on Shaye's brother Dune a volleyball star.
Talk about a beach read. This is a sweet fluffy story set on a beach. Rich guy falls in love with poor but happy girl. Reading this is like eating coconut creme pie. (BTW that pie is in the story.) Trace and Shaye have been brought up to dislike each other, but now they are forced to work together. The weakest part was lack of relationship development. Not enough happened to show how and why Shaye and Trace fell in love. The same with Nicole and Kai.Read more ›
If you enjoy this genre I would also suggest; Rescue Me, Sweet Spot , Can't Buy Me Love and The Fireman Who Loved Me: A Bachelor Firemen Novel.
Shaye runs her family's failing boardwalk and nearby fishing village businesses. Realtor Trace recently came home to help his ailing father injured in a fall; he runs his family's boardwalk businesses. They must team up on a beach volleyball tournament that neither wants though the money is too good to ignore. Worse still is the attraction that both feels and loathes yet each also knows how their blood would react if they made physical contact.
This is a lighthearted contemporary romance in which the family feud is part of the DNA of each disputing side. The storyline is symbolized by her being shorts and him being suits. Although the ending seems weak, fans will enjoy this fun story while wondering what the survey says about love, sand, kids' softball baseball and family visits.

It wasn't exactly a page turner. There was an intriguing storyline that kept my attention but it was way too detailed and not that well written. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Nicole Migliazzo
