#REVIEW Sex on the Beach by @OliviaThorneBks

Sex on the Beach
by Olivia Thorne

**Available on Kindle Unlimited**

SEX ON THE BEACH is a blend of sensual, erotic romance with sweet & delicious head-over-heels love.

HEA, no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a fairytale romance with a bad boy who's complex but magnetic - and of course, heaps of hot, juicy, passionate sex!

Katie is running from lies and heartbreak back home when she crosses paths with the most intoxicating man this sweet but sassy Kansas girl has ever laid eyes on.

Ian is a surfer in Venice, California. 6'3". Body of a Greek Adonis, face like a Calvin Klein model... demeanor of an iceberg.

After a random and painfully awkward meeting, what follows are surfing lessons, ice cream on the boardwalk, and lazy summer days on the beach. As Katie and Ian spend more time together, they begin to fall in love. Hard.

It's perfect. Until it's not.

Ian has secrets he's hiding - a dark past he doesn't want to share.

Katie swore she would never let a man lie to her again... but when do secrets become lies? And despite a passionate love and an unwavering bond, can Katie forgive?

REVIEW- 4.5 Stars!
Olivia Thorne writes some of my favorite billionaires/Millionaires. Sex on the Beach just added one to my list! Ian is certainly dreamy! This full-length novel was fast-paced and full of emotion. It’s a fantastic escape from the real world with its steamy sex, delicious alpha hero, and a spunky heroine.

Katie is a loveable character, though she can be a bit of a contradiction. It’s hard for a lot of people to see the bad situation they are in when it creeps around them, so I certainly don’t blame her for being blind to it. Especially when you have been pressured into being perfect for so long. But, once she breaks free, her overwhelming guilt at her actions was just a tad hard to swallow. It could have been a little less intense and still gotten the point across, especially considering the events that unfold as the story continues. But, she was smart, full of fun and wit, often making me chuckle at her antics and banter. Her determination to move forward with her life, despite the truly oppressive strongholds that her parents and ex try to cage her with.

Ian has been through a lot too, though his problems are certainly night and day from Katie’s. Well, except the devil exes. He’s feeling lost, but when he meets Katie, it’s like he finds a piece of himself again. The more time he spends with her, the more he puts himself back together. His fear of telling her the truth about himself is very valid in the beginning. However, as time went by and Katie proved herself, he was a bit bullheaded about it. Stubbornly refusing to believe what was right in front of him was real. Not an unusual guy trait, you must admit. But, I loved his sweetness, his alpha dominance, his intellect, and so much more.

These two have an explosive relationship, and I don’t just mean between the sheets, though they burn really freaking hot there too. They went up and down really fast sometimes and it made my head spin just a little. Fighting, making up, fighting again, making up, all in one scene. The highs and lows could have been spread out a little more to make them less overwhelming. However, I love these two as a couple and was left with a smile when they finally got their HEA.

The cameo with Connor Templeton was a lot of fun too, it made me anxious to go back and do a re-read of his books as well. I hope to see more books like this from Olivia in the future because it was fantastic and will definitely be a re-read for me!
