STORY BRIEF:
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.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
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.

The concept of this book is that Cates and Saunders families have been owning and running a area of Florida with a line drawn in the sand over their communities. The Cates wanted family fun and the Saunders wanted high end - first class living. Shaye Cates needs help from Trace Saunders to make her 4th of July volleyball events succeed but nothing is easy. There are lots of sparks , family feuding and fun secondary romance stories -- could not put it down !

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.

Their families have hated each other for several generations as they compete for beach customers in Florida. Like their kin, Shaye Cates and Trace Sanders have detested one another since they were small children.

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.

So the weather is nasty and I had a day to kill so I picked this book to read. I have read Kate Angell's baseball series and liked them so I bought this one knowing ahead of time that it would be a good book. But it was better than good! It was funny and sexy then it was so sweet it made my heart melt. These two characters were made for each other and I loved the way they came together. What a great story...just simple, and pure chemistry. The side stories of Kai and Nichole and Dune and Sophie only added more. Kate Angell is good at this mix with her secondary characters. Dune and Sophie get their own story in another book. I ordered it too but have yet to begin to read it. I know it will be good...it's a Kate Angell book!

I liked the book and will read the second but my only problem was the author spent to much time on secondary characters in this book. I almost forgot whose story this was when it got switched to Dune and Sophie. I never mind when there are secondary characters but I do believe to much of the story was spent on them. Then it came back to the main characters and they felt rushed to show a connection and an end to their store. The secondary characters have their own story so I don't see why she put so much into their set up. Was a good story just wish there was more to the main characters store then the others.
