    Sin is fun!!!!

    Let me just say, this novella lives up to the hype, who wouldn't love a big yummy Firefighter you can lean on and hopefully in a forever kind of way and lets add a gorgeous singer into the mix for some fun. The story of how Aiden and Mac met was delightful and well let's just says Nick's story had me in tears but it does have a happy ending. Bandicoot Cove is shaping up to be the hotspot for fun in the sun - a great place to go on vacation to get away from the cares of the world or to just live out some of your fantasies.
    This is a great little nooner as my husband likes to say.

    Hot Read

    The magic of Bandicoot Cove has one more story to tell and it's one that made me smile with its sincerity, sweetness and unique storyline.

    McKenzie Wood is ready for a serious career in journalism and has just spotted her golden goose in the form of elusive rock star, Nick Blackthorne. If Mac hadn't been so star-struck and determined, she might have noticed that her best friend, Aiden, only agrees to help because, to him, making Mac happy is worth more than gold.

    Aiden is such a sweetheart! He was so easy to fall in love with and I think I would have been furious at McKenzie if she had not been immediately receptive of his attention. Considering how long they've been best friends and the fact that everyone around them had already figured out how perfect they were for each other, I had to wonder if anything but the most direct approach would work with McKenzie.

    Nick Blackthorne has lived the rock star life for many years and while it may seem that his life is everything he could possibly want it to be, it's not. When he finally gives Mac the story she thought she wanted it's not even remotely close to what she had heard or imagined.

    Similar to Island Idyll, book 3 in the series, Tropical Sin has a ménage element but does not end with all three parties walking away together. While I'm not a big fan of a ménage that isn't committed, this story is about more than why these three should or shouldn't be together as a triad. These are three people who are at a point in their lives where it's time to either make some changes or stay stuck in a rut. How they go from standing still to moving forward with their lives is a fun, steamy and touching story.

    If this is your first trip to Bandicoot Cove, you're in for a treat. You won't have to have read the other books in the series to enjoy this novella. All of the books in the series are short reads so if you find yourself wanting to learn more about the other friends you'll run into on the island don't hesitate to pick up those books as well. This was a clever writing project by three talented writers and well worth the read!

    Definite Scorcher! HOT, HOT, HOT

    I am a true fan of best friends turned to lover's story and this one sure does hit the mark. McKenzie Wood is oblivious to Aiden Rogers emotions and how he goes all puppy eyes around, until feelings start stirring in her and realizes she actually wants her best friend. They both do not want to jeopardize the friendship they have just for sex, but with a very convincing rock star named Nick Blackthorne (awesome name BTW) they can't seem to say no.
    The intimate scenes are scorches, pun intended since Aiden is a fireman *drool* (lol). I did almost feel bad for Aiden because I thought maybe his first time with McKenzie should have been alone, but I really think Nick helped their relationship and completely tore down their inhibitions. Along with Lexxie's known humor, this story is a definite winner for me and a perfect addition to this series.
