READ AND REVIEW
LIFE'S A BEACH (HAWAII HEAT #1) BY JAMIE K. SCHMIDT
Release Date: January 5, 2016
Sex on the beach has never been so much fun! USA Today bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt kicks off a series set in paradise with an irresistible tale of second chances, secret identities—and a connection that’s too sweet to miss.
When Amelia Parker arrives in Maui, newly single and unemployed, she’s shocked to discover the resort she booked is actually a ramshackle little beachside hotel. At least the scenery is easy on the eyes—as is the toned, laid-back snorkel instructor, “Dude.” After two weeks of sun, serenity, and mind-blowing sex, she even accepts a job as the hotel’s concierge. But what Amelia really wants is to relaunch the place completely. And that means convincing the absentee Wall Street billionaire owner, Samuel Kincaide, to take a chance on her.
Samuel has a plan, too: selling off every last reminder of his former life and chilling all day, every day as his slacker altar ego . . . Dude. He loves his romps in the ocean, and under the sheets, with the feisty Amelia. If she discovers his true identity, her boundless enthusiasm and innovative business plan will seriously diminish his hammock time. But when Amelia runs into real trouble on the island, he’ll put everything on the line to keep her safe. He just hopes that the woman who’s falling for Dude will feel the same about Samuel.

Life's a Beach by Jamie K. Schmidt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Laid back story with an irresistible flair. Ms. Schmidt brought all the warmth of the summer to heat up the winter nights. I received an ARC of Life's a Beach in exchange for an honest review. "Dude" was a great character. Charming, mysterious and sexy as all get out. Amelia is uptight, cynical and needs to relax. She needs to get away. A beautiful island. A sexy stranger. What a way to leave your troubles behind. Loveswept and NetGalley have introduced me to an author that writes stories that are tempting but worth every calorie.
