Sexy Berkeley (Sexy Series)

A long-distance relationship with a hot American businessman is the last thing on Beatrice Hart’s mind when the day from hell ends with her drink-booking a last minute escape to glamorous Southern California.
With Bea’s firm belief that long distance never works, will she ever consider that that an exhilarating introduction at 35,000 feet could lead to anything more than a steamy holiday romance?
Daniel Berkeley is the irresistible, delectable, smoking hot bachelor, determined to make it happen.

4.5 stars for a really enjoyable, great value read. I found the opening of this story a bit hard going for a couple of pages, however, it quickly turned into a very entertaining read. One of those that you start and don’t really want to have to put aside until you know how it works out, which can be a bit of a pain, as it’s quite a lengthy read.The heroine, Beatrice (Bea), and the hero, Daniel, are very likeable. There is an element of insta-lust that become insta-love, which I usually find very irritating, but on this occasion it’s handled with great credibility. What happens with these two is the same thing you hear about around the family dinner table – the couple everyone knows who met on holiday, fell in love and it somehow all worked out when it really shouldn’t have, given they knew each other so briefly. Not to say there wasn’t conflict. There is a major conflict in the story that has to be resolved for the HEA.I docked a half star because sometimes Daniel seemed just a little too good to be true (I know, jealous, much!). Also, the dialogue was a bit too down pat on occasions. Nevertheless, it was a great story and I really look forward to the sequel, which is based upon two of the very well-developed secondary characters. (The cliffhanger at the end of this story relates to those secondary characters, not to Bea and Daniel – this book can be read as a very satisfying stand-alone).Note, for those who care, the book contains few editorial errors (just the odd misspelling throughout) and the writer demonstrates technical proficiency.Great story, really enjoyed it and will definitely be continuing on with the further books in this series.

Eh-Could have been worse. Okay let me start off by saying that it was a cute, light read. Romantic love story with a lot… (let me emphasize)… A LOT of sex in it. I’ve definitely read worse but let me tell you how exactly I read this book.”You’re so hot.””No you’re so hot baby.”Sex”Musn’t get attached.”Sex”So hot.””Baby, you’re hot.”Sex”I’m too attached.””Hot hot hot.”Sex”Hot.””No we can’t be together.”SexSexSEXAwwwwww, the end.I swear that I must have read the word hot, sexy, beautiful at least five times on each page. It got really old really fast. Sorry, just not one I’m ever planning on reading again even if there were some fun steamy parts. I kind of got to the point where I was just praying for the end.Sorry, not my cuppa tea.

Couldn’t finish this book Normally, when I read (which I do quite a lot), there are two rules I Try not to break. One is never leave a book unfinished. Two is, never skip to the end of a book.I had to decide with this book which was the lesser of two evils.The premise was pretty straight forward. Girl from UK going on vacation to the US, meets guy from US on a plane. Both are extremely attracted to each other. You know their feelings will become deeper, the relationship more intimate. The quandary becomes, how do these two people manage to maintain a relationship living in two countries?The book wasn’t terrible, but it rapidly became boring. After chapter 9, my two rules started popping into my head more frequently.The dialogue was killing me. How many times can you read “I want you, I need you, you’re beautiful, you’re sexy, and how many times do we have to endure the word “baby”?? After a while, I felt like I needed a brain cleanser, (Similar to a palette cleanser like sorbet), so I could go back to the story.I also started to wonder, did I really even care what happened to them?Why was Daniel wrong for walking out in the beginning? Talk about Bea sending mixed signals. Bea had been consistently telling him they should stop seeing each other, and when he finally listened, she wanted to be upset. Then he came back. Then they had one last night. Then she texts him. Then they decide to spend the rest of her vacation together.I don’t know. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind to read this book. Bottom line, my lesser of two evils was to not finish the book. It’s possible I will come back to it at some other time. I managed to read as far as chapter 13 and saw that there were approx. 12 more chapters and I didn’t have the patience or fortitude to follow through.
