Overview


A temporary agreement neither could keep… Brainy, organized Sophie Birch is no beach bunny. In fact, she’s totally out of her element among the sun-bronzed crowd at a film festival in beautiful White Strand Cove. When a surf lesson introduces her to Zane Hollander, suddenly she's up close and personal with the world's sexiest surf star. But what can a great-looking, experienced athlete possibly see in a klutzy out-of-towner who’s never set foot in the ocean? Zane Hollander's playboy reputation has never been a problem…until recently. Now his management team wants him on his best behavior to entice a meaningful new sponsor. Sophie Birch is the perfect girl to help reform his image. She's genuine and respected—and their relationship is purely fictional. But the more Sophie blooms under the beachy sun, the more Zane knows he'll just break her heart. Because nothing's more important to Zane than following the tide.

    One of my favorites

    I loved this book! I think this may be my favorite one written by the author. I liked the beginning, when they first met. The middle, when they were getting to know each other. The ending...loved the ending. It was perfect. So yeah, I loved all of it! ♥

    The author has a way of writing likable characters (not just this book but all her other ones I read). Sophie is a smart mousy girl. I liked how she blossomed throughout the book. Zane is this gorgeous surfer. I liked that there was more to him than getting into girls panties. Haha. I loved them together. They were written with such great chemistry.

    I can't wait to see if there is a book about Honor and Bryce. There is definitely something there and I want to read about it. So, I'll leave off with "I've been Zaned!" ;)

    My Thoughts: Another incredible book from Entangled! A very enj

    My Thoughts:

    Another incredible book from Entangled! A very enjoyable read, you will be swept up in the romantic feel of it. I'm glad to have gotten the opportunity to read Sophie and Zane's little love story.

    Sophie and Zane don't seem to match up on paper, but they completely connect when put together. Seeing their relationship develop is the best part of the book. One of my favorite parts, other than kisses, is to see two people drawn together whether it takes time or happens more quickly. As long as it's executed properly, it's good stuff. And it was done very well here!

    Keeping Mr. Right Now was a sweetie of a story. I love to see a romance that has depth to it, and characters that you find wonderful. The whole thing was well done. I'm very curious to see Robin Bielman's other stories. Definitely worth picking up!

    My Rating: Very Good

    In Keeping Mr. Right Now there is a supposed division in the att

    In Keeping Mr. Right Now there is a supposed division in the attractiveness of the couple – nerdy Sophie and hottie Zane – but it is handled well.  Zane is kind and strong, able to see the things that make Sophie a true beauty, and is caring and patient enough to help Sophie see it too.  It is so very sweet and made me fall in love with Zane all the more. 

    Amazingly enough, considered his popularity, Zane does have a bit of a confidence problem which stems from his abusive father.  He doesn’t believe that he’s intelligent and that all he’s good for is surfing.  My favorite thing is how Sophie immediately sees the truth about how smart he actually is and supports him every chance she gets.  Just as how he makes her see she’s beautiful, she shows him that he’s smart.  It leaves you with a warm and fuzzy to see how well they mesh to make that perfect couple, believing in each other and, by extension, themselves. 

    This isn’t the first Robin Bielman book I’ve read and I’ve loved every one of them (Kissing the Maid of Honor,Wild About Her Wingman, Her Accidental Boyfriend).  She creates lush characters and believable relationships, delivering them with tenderness, humor and, sometimes, a bit of heat.  She’s quickly embedded herself on my automatic TBR list – I don’t even hesitate when I see her name on a book, I just know that it is going to be a winner.  And Keeping Mr Right Now is no different – go now and pick it up!   (A copy of the book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review)

    After reading this story I can say...I've been Zaned! LOL Zane and Sophie were wonderful together. I could really feel their inner pain when their past histories were mentioned. I'm really hoping to see more books soon that feature their friends we met in this story.

    4.5 stars Another great read by Robin Bielman, Keeping Mr Right

    4.5 stars

    Another great read by Robin Bielman, Keeping Mr Right Now was a very entertaining and fun read.

    I truly enjoyed reading Zane and Sophie's love story.
    Loved both Zane and Sophie, I found myself connecting with them both especially Sophie and her insecurities. 
    Loved how these two people started off as total opposites, one full of confidence yet hiding the mental scares left by his fathers words, the other having no confidence and a very low opinion of herself because of her upbringing and the high expectations placed upon her because of her IQ.
    Together they find inner peace, love and happiness.

    So much love for Sophie and Zane and for Robin Bielman for writing this heartfelt story. 
    This book is a perfect start to this new series and cannot wait to read more about the secondary characters.
    I highly recommend it!

    A cute read that's perfect for summer! Slightly nerdy smart girl

    A cute read that's perfect for summer! Slightly nerdy smart girl gets the hot jock who spends most of his time shirtless and in board shorts--who doesn't want to read that? ;)




    Skipping a few years in school and living with overprotective parents has made Sophie more than a little socially awkward. She's recently decided to forgo research work in favor of event planning, and the surfer-themed film festival offers her a chance to justify her career change.




    Zane loves the ocean and has no complaints about his surfer lifestyle, but now he wants to use his influence to do good for others. He's particularly interested in a nonprofit organization called the Surf Help Exchange--and it looks like they might want him for their ambassador. First, though, he has to clean up his image. 




    Enter Sophie--a "safe" relationship for Zane. Spend some time with her, stay away from the tabloids. What does Sophie get out of the deal? A "Mr. Right Now"--a guy to have temporary fun with while she's in town for the festival. A win-win, right? 




    Riiiight.




    Their relationship was cute to watch, as it slowly grew from friendship to something more. His surfer-god-with-a-heart-of-gold persona was a nice compliment to her sweet ready-to-move-on-from-unrequited-crushes nerdy girl-ness.




    For all his big-shot surfer ways, Zane was absolutely adorable with his younger fans. He always made time to make them feel special. It made him twice as hot, if that's even possible.




    Honor and Bryce (Zane's friend/manager) are clearly being set up for a future book in the series, and it should be a good one--lovers with a past...




    Keeping Mr. Right Now is a perfect beach read book--whether you're at the beach or just wish you were :)




    (I have to admit, I didn't see the "Red Hot" label before the Bliss logo when I started reading, so I was a little surprised when the steamy scenes went further than I expected. Not complaining, though!)

    Great Beach Read

    Looking for another great beach read for the final days of summer? From the start to the finish, Keeping Mr. Right Now by Robin Bielman is an amazing book. I wish I could tell you that this story would cool you down, but that’s just not the case with this red hot Bliss. The book is primarily set in California as Zane and Sophie have a bit of fun in the sun. I loved the beach scenes in which the descriptions were vivid and I got a real sense of the surroundings and what the characters were feeling. I could only imagine Zane’s connection to the sea and his backstory tied in perfectly with his career choice. Sophie’s character added a special touch to the story. She wasn’t the typical perfect woman with that perfect body. She was average, klutzy, and had tousled red hair. Sophie seemed to understand Zane and wasn't only looking at his superficial aspects. What starts out as a favor evolves into something more. I loved that Zane and Sophie spent time together without expectations. The story was believable because although they were attracted to each other and fantasized about each other, there were barriers/insecurities that interfered with them making a move. However, the chemistry between them seemed genuine as they spent time getting to know each other. So if you want to take a trip to the California shoreline and don’t have enough time left this summer, you’ll want to read Keeping Mr. Right Now. Rating 5/5 I received an E-ARC of Keeping Mr. Right Now from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Five Stars to Robin Bielman for her great summer read Keeping Mr

    Five Stars to Robin Bielman for her great summer read Keeping Mr. Right Now. It's a perfect read to lounge by the pool or beach and take your mind off of whatever is bothering you as it is the carefree writing and theme of the novel will whisk you away to a whole other world.

    After Sophie literally falls at the feet of the Surfing's world version of "David Beckham", she is thrown into the world of Zane Hollander. After the quick connection and instant chemistry and some encouragement from others, the two strike an arrangement that is suited to benefit them both.

    However, as we all know, life is never that simple, and although Sophie is trying to "live a little" and take chances with her life and find that "Mr Right Now", both her and Zane never thought that they would develop feelings for one another. What was supposed to be a week fling is slowly turning into something more.

    Bielman made you feel like you were in the midst of the Californian surf with her descriptive words and powerful writing technique. You begin to fall in love with the characters and they almost feel as if they are your best friend. Both characters were very likeable and had an appeal about them - Sophie was a strong, independent and courageous women as the book progressed and Zane appeared on the outside as confident, strong, sexy and sauve but on the inside he was anything but.

    Robin Bielman uses the banter between the characters to lighten the mood of the book and create a bit of subtle humour. It was great to get a laugh in, while you were California dreaming. Bielman was very talented in using the humour to make the relationship feel real and nothing felt forced in the book.

    Keeping Mr Right Now is definitely a book you need to read prior to the end of summer! The strong dialogue between the characters, the great plotline and the steamy in-between the sheets scenes will leave you wanting more.

    Definitely a 5 Star Read!

    Loved it!  Sophie is sweet and smart but lacking in confidence with the opposite sex.  When she is on a working vacation, she meets Zane Hollander, sexy surf star.  Zane is the opposite of Sophie, always in the public eye and has a certain reputation with the ladies.  Sophie quickly makes friends with Holly, who pushes to break out of her shell, have a good time and enjoy Zane as her "Mr. Right Now" while she's in town.  It was nice to see them evolve from friends to lovers slowly.  




    There is more to Zane than surfing and his bad-boy image.  Sophie has a way of bringing the real Zane out and making him feel smart.  He shared things with her that only his family or his two best friends Danny and Bryce know about.  Zane brings out the more adventurous side of Sophie and helps build her confidence.  The more time Sophie and Zane spend together, the more their feelings get involved and the harder it becomes to say goodbye at the end of the film festival.  Zane screws up and lets Sophie go by hurting her.  Once he get his head on straight, he has to convincer her to give him another chance.  The ending is super cute and romantic, but I don't want to spoil it for you, so you will just have to read it!




    Great start to the series, can't wait to read about Bryce and Holly, I'm dying to know what happened between and why she was avoiding him.  Sweet and romantic, gets a hot towards the end!

    "You're what I've been looking for my whole life, and if you let me, I'll love you for the rest of yours!"
    Wow! Who wouldn't want to read a romance with a line like that in it? Robin weaves a story of an unlikely pair - the seemingly self-assured surfer and the brainy and a bit klutzy "he's way out of my league" girl. While this book contains more spice than Robin's previous novels, it's still a very romantic story and the characters develop of a relationship with each other. They are so different, but so right for each other - they just have to find out why and how they will compliment each other. And then that line!!!
    I look forward to reading more in this line from Robin. She never lets her readers down!

    I must say I wasn't expecting so much emotions to be in this boo

    I must say I wasn't expecting so much emotions to be in this book. This is definitely an enjoyable, sweet and realistic story. I really loved
    the characters of Zane and Sophie. I love that there is a build up on the chemistry and their feelings and I love how Sophie makes Zane
    feel and see his own worth despite all the insecurities he have about himself. I love that Zane is down to earth and not an arrogant jerk.
    I love that Sophie saw the real Zane and got through those walls into his heart. There are so many things to love about this book that you
    just have to pick up and read it for yourself.

    Zane also did a lot of good for Sophie. Made her come out of her well to enjoy life. She became a more confident person and overcame
    her shyness. There were a couple of secondary characters that I'm curious about. Hope there will be a book about them.

    Robin Bielman hit the ballpark with this book and to date, I've not read much about surfers so it was really refreshing and interesting to
    know more about them and what they do out there besides surfing. If you have not read Robin's books, you should check them out.

    3.5/5 stars Red Hot Bliss + Robin Bielman? Talk about a no-bra

    3.5/5 stars

    Red Hot Bliss + Robin Bielman? Talk about a no-brainer! This was a fun, sweet, and steamy read set on the beach of California. Bielman has created a delightful story about the most unlikely of pairs working together and falling headfirst into something neither ever anticipated.

    Surfer god extraordinaire Zane Hollander needs a good, down to earth girl to help clean up his playboy image so he can land the position he's been aiming for, but never thought good enough to have. Enter Sophie Birch, smart, intelligent events planner who wants to prove to her boss that she can handle a demanding job. As she becomes friends with Zane and realizes that she's attracted to him, will she able to distinguish what is real and what is just for show?

    I really enjoyed Sophie's character. She is not the typical girl a sexy, notorious surfer like Zane would fall for. That is what makes their relationship that much more intriguing. In the beginning, Zane isn't the least bit attracted to her. He thinks she's pleasant and definitely klutzy, but there's no insta-fireworks between them. It is through them spending time with one another and learning the others' personalities, that he really begins to see how beautiful she is inside and out. Zane has been plagued by years of feeling inadequate due to his overbearing father and Sophie is constantly encouraging him to go after what he wants. He begins to feel that he could never measure up to the kind of guy Sophie deserves and really battles over whether or not to engage in a relationship of any kind with her. I liked Zane too, even though I didn't really connect with his character. Some of his actions irritated me, but he is only doing what he thinks to be best, even at the cost of his own happiness. I just felt I didn't get quite enough from him until later in the novel.

    Their relationship is definitely a slow building one, which could be frustrating at times, as the sexual tension between them was definitely intense.

    I also really enjoyed Sophie and Honor's friendship. I am hoping Bielman will write Honor's story next and there is definitely some history between her and Zane's good friend, Bryce.

    I enjoyed this one- it was just the light-hearted, fun read I needed- I just wish I could have been perched on a beach myself while reading!

    Sophie needs to let her hair down a little. Instead of looking for Mr. Right, she needs some time with Mr. Right Now. Living in Montana, she takes an assignment/vacation to sunny California to oversee the Surf Fanatic Film Festival. This is where she meets Zane Hollander, sexy, gorgeous surf pro. Zane needs to clean up his reputation if he wants to be the ambassador to Surf Help Exchange, a non-profit organization promoting humanitarian, clean water, and natural healing efforts around the world. Will Sophie agree to accompany Zane to a few public appearances in exchange for getting more business for her company?

    Great story with fabulous characters! Bryce, Danny, and Honor were fantastic secondary characters. Sophie is full of surprises. Zane had no clue what he would awaken inside little Ms. Wholesome Montana. I loved her character growth throughout the story. The issues Zane had were a little more difficult to navigate.

    Robin Bielman writes fantastic contemporary romance and I'm always wearing a smile at the end of her books!

    **A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review**

    Sophie has never been to the beach. She is completely out of her element at a film festival in White Strand Cove. While at a surf lesson, she meets Zane, the world’s possibly sexist surfer. But what could this surfer see in a ditzy land lubber such as her?
    Sophie and Zane are the couple who make you root for them. Sophie is one of the book types and very shy and Zane is a bodysurfer who is a playboy with the ladies. Zane had made sort of a mess of things in the past but recently he has cleaned up his life and has everything “coming up roses” so to speak but his paths cross with Ms Sophie. Sophie is somewhat socially awkward- she is not graceful and she has never seen the ocean. She takes pleasure in the simple things. Zane finds that her lack of guile wonderful, and that she has something that is drawing him in. Zane finds that she sees the “real” Zane, not the public image or the face he presents to the women he dates. .
    The road the characters take in ths book is perfect; the sexual build-up was hot. And I loved the ending. I really hope to read more from this author. She writes such vivid scenes that make me feel as though I am right there.

    I really loved this book. It was a nice weekend romantic read and kept me interested the entire time, you just can't help but fall in love with the characters. Zane is one of those guys that women dream about. Even though he's a professional surfer, he's never forgotten where he comes from and he never forgets his fans; especially the children. Every time a child came up to him my heart melted. He's just (for the most part) and all around good guy that any girl would love to bring home to her parents. 

    Okay so the story starts out with Sophie who is on a business trip/personal life changing trip. She is determined to start living her life and doing things for her and on that list is surfing. Zane is an amazing professional surfer who needs to help improve his playboy imagine and focus on getting a position with the company S.H.E. And while on vacation these two are the perfect match to help one another. 

    However, what these two don't expect to happen is develop feelings for one another. Especially, not only do they live completely different lifestyles, but also live thousands of miles away from each other. But that doesn't stop feelings from arising and watching the way these two progress through the book is very entertaining. Sophie begins to show a side of her that she has always wanted and loves the new her and Sophie is bringing out a side in Zane that he was missing. 

    I loved every moment of this book. Especially the ending. I had way to many awww moments and again Zane just made my heart melt. I would highly recommend this book as a nice quick weekend read to just having something sweet and romantic as well as watching characters find their ways in life and watching them grow.

    My thoughts: Zane Hollander stood in profile a few feet away

    My thoughts:




    Zane Hollander stood in profile a few feet away. Sophie's breath caught. Up close, he looked like he'd been carved from the most glorious, most gorgeous stone on the planet. His blond hair was straight, on the longer side and sticking up in GQ messiness. Square jaw, high cheekbones, perfect nose. Then he turned and pierced her with ice-blue eyes that knocked her off-balance.
    Literally.
    She tripped over her own feet and face-planted right into the sand.




    KEEPING MR. RIGHT NOW by Robin Bielman is a sweet and sizzling contemporary romance. It was solely responsible for my book hangover the following morning as I stayed up past 3am finishing it; I also wore a silly smile through-out the next day because this book gave me a major case of the warm fuzzies, a known-to-be-common affliction from reading Robin's books. :-) KEEPING MR. RIGHT NOW is the spicy story of opposites Zane Hollander and Sophie Birch. I fell in love with both of them!
