    Fun, light read

    I have read Angell's other books and have found them enjoyable. This was a cute story, but sometimes her writing style does not seem authentic to me. The dialogue between Sophie and Dune bordered on strange and never seemed realistic to me. I felt more connected with Mac and Jenna's subplot. But overall it was a cute book to pass a Sunday.

    Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite No Strings Attac

    Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite

    No Strings Attached by Kate Angell is a fun beach day romance read.  Mac and Dune are ageing champion beach volleyball players who seemingly can attract any bikini-clad woman on the Southwest coast of Florida. Mac rates his women according to wax jobs while Dune seems to be a bit less superficial while at least attempting to look beyond exterior physical attributes. But, admittedly, both men are hot and their thoughts and behaviors are steamy throughout the book! Dune comes from the Cates family, whose ancestors began the community of Barefoot William, a charming beach resort which skirts the boundaries of a wealthy community founded by the somewhat snobbish Saunders family. A battle for prominence developed between the two founders and the two families have now feuded for generations. But recently, Dune Cates' sister has married into the Saunders family and the union threatens to snap the tension of the generational feud. 

    At times, Mac was annoying in his juvenile outlook on life but, perhaps, that is part of what makes him lovable for the reader. I most enjoyed seeing the development of the relationship between Dune Cates and shy, unassuming, and awkward Sophie Saunders. While Sophie gradually comes of age, Dune begins to appreciate her sweet, unaffected qualities and he dares to take a chance on developing a relationship. Their gestures toward one another are charming and reflective of more realistic interactions among young persons just trying to make their way through life. Young adults will like this book as there are subtle lessons to be learned along with the benefits of daring to explore the machinations of the birds and the bees.

    No Strings Attached warmed my soul, mind and heart.  Such a perfect sweet read.  

    I’m going to put this out first thing; No Strings Attached is very heartwarming and tender.  There is no action, angst, love triangles, back stabbing, and mystery.  There aren’t even explicit sex scenes in the novel, but lovely touching ones.  This book is sweet, light hearted and a nice change of pace.  If you only read books with any of the above, you will likely not like No Strings Attached.  But if you want something that you can enjoy with fun loving characters, budding romance, lighthearted monologue and the beautiful setting of the Florida gulf coast than this book is for you.  Now that that has been said…

    Sofie has loved Dune for almost two decades.  From the moment he saved her, he had her heart; even if she was only seven years old.  Years later, even after she found out he was from the enemy camp, she continued to watch him grow into the man he is today.  Unfortunately, after a few weeks of fun with him last summer, he left Barefoot William without even saying goodbye; leaving Sofie behind with a broken heart.  

    Well it’s summer time again and she has a mission to start living.  She may have lived a sheltered life for her first 25 years, but now she is going to try new things and discover what makes Sofie tick.

    Dune has had two things on his mind this last year.  Upfront it is his career.  He is still working out an injury that may ruin his pro volleyball career and then in the back of his mind is a sweet, shy woman that burrowed into his heart.  From the moment he met Sofie he has wanted to cosset and watch over her.  His body may want more, but with their age difference he won’t listen to it.  

    Now he is back in town and Sofie Saunders is going to be the death of him.  Why is the quiet, timid, klutzy Sofie taking on uni-cycling and stilt walking?  The woman can barely talk in bare feet, let alone stay balanced feet off the ground.  Looks like Dune will be looking after her while he is in town.

    Their friendship is rekindled and things start to heat up.  Can these two totally different people find happiness when one has only eyes for him and he only wants a relationship that has no strings attached?

    For me this was simply divine.  I fell in love with Sofie in the first book, No Tan Lines, and she solidified her place in my heart with this book.  This woman is kindness, love and forgiveness all wrapped into a gentle soul that shines as bright as the sun.  She may have been alone growing up, but the woman is a beacon and people are drawn to her now.  It’s inevitable that Dune couldn’t fight his attraction.  She is just perfect.

    Dune is just as darn cute.  Here is a man that has been surrounded by fame and fortune, countless beach bunnies and the iconic life of a professional athlete.  He has retained his small town charm and his heart and soul will always be in Barefoot William.  I’m so glad that he didn’t fight his brain for the placement of Sofie in his life.  He knew what he had and he grabbed onto her with both hands and followed his heart.  What a lovely beautiful man.

    I enjoy Ms. Angell’s style of writing in this series.  It’s a different style and may not appease the masses.  Just like the last book in this series, it wasn’t just about this one couple.  She added in another in the shadows and made the adventure even more exciting.  I enjoyed the second couple as much as the main one.  She included all the characters POV, four in total.  This can bother some people, but I didn’t have a problem with it one bit.

    Barefoot William residents are also a joy to visit.  This community will draw you in and make you one of their own.  The warm feelings I get from this book is so wonderful.  This is not my normal reading genre, but one that I enjoy visiting once in a while.  I’m glad I ventured here.  Ms. Angell did a wonderful job and I can only hope that it won’t be a year until the next installment.

    No Strings Attached By Kate Angell is the perfect summer read.

    No Strings Attached By Kate Angell is the perfect summer read.

    Dune Cates has a charmed life, as a professional volleyball player he is at the top of his game. He can have any woman he wants but lately only one seems to be on his mind. The quirky Sophie Saunders. Dune tries to keep Sophie out of trouble but trouble seems to find her.

    Sophie Saunders, grew up as a child of privilege but she has the softest heart of anyone on the boardwalk. She is trying to find her place on the boardwalk by trying out various jobs on a volunteer basis. The one problem is her overwhelming attraction to Dune Cates. Dune just makes her heart beat faster and he can make her blush like no other. Seems Dune is everywhere she is lately and Sophie is finding it harder and harder to ignore the attraction she feels for him.

    Dune decides to help Sophie expand her world but didn’t plan on the attraction being on both of their parts. As they spend more and more time together they give into their feelings. But will Dune’s career pose the end to this budding romance?

    No Strings Attached is a delight from page one. Everyone has a bit of Sophie in them and it’s a joy to watch her spread her winds. And to see how Dune supports and encourages her in her journey. Their attraction is electric and very emotional too. Looking forward to the next book by Kate Angell.

    No Strings Attached Angell, Kate This book follows a previous

    No Strings Attached Angell, Kate
    This book follows a previous one but things are explained enough that it can be read at any time. The feud continues or has it ended with the marriage: Cates and Saunders.
    They drew the line in town, Shaye from the working people part and Trace from the very high class exclusive part of town, they merged and married. On we find his sister Sophie who's not found her niche in life, working and volunteering til she finds something she might want to do with the rest of her life.
    She has eyes for the volleyball pros and knows she'll never have one as a boyfriend but also lays eyes on Duane.
    The boardwalk is such a lively fun magical place. I could sit nearby and just watch all day long there are so many shops to visit.
    The book also follows others who are testing the waters.
    Sophie is terrified of the water and with help she might overcome her fears...
    Bantering of sex and scenes add to this story.
