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 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.
