Erotica Romance with suspense
This story had so many elements while keeping the pages turning. We start at a tropical resort where Bea accepts dinner and more with Andrew and his friend Tessa, which includes a menage. Bea doesn't want to share any of her life in Texas with Andrew when she leaves to go back home to her job. But fate and work bring them back together. Then mysterious things happen at Andrew's job site, Bea's place of work and even at their homes. Someone is stalking one or both of them. I like the way the story flows, the characters in this story and the element of suspense.
I think that my constructive criticism would be that in the dialogue, the overuse of saying someone's name when they are talking to each other was over-the-top. Normally you would not say a person's name each sentence you speak, it was more like a car salesman trying to over use your name trying to be familiar. In normal conversations, you just don't repeat names that often.

“Sexy Bea Spelling" by Davee Jones
3 out of 5 stars
If you are looking for light summer reading then this book could be for you. It's a quick and fun read that you can easily enjoy by the pool in one sitting. Bea Spelling needs a break from her rather conservative life. On a much needed vacation to a "leave your inhibitions at the door" resort she meets a man who blasts her out of her comfort zone. Throwing caution to the wind, and a whole lot of modesty, she enjoys her time with Andrew and laments the end of her holiday. Upon returning to her rather staid life, circumstances throw her back together with the man she thought she’d left behind. Will she be able to open up and let him in or will her brain overrule her heart?
Bea was a bit of a contradiction. In her daily life she's buttoned up and somewhat straight laced. If it weren't for her relationship with her best friends you would almost think she is a prude. On the flip side, her scenes with Andrew have a wild quality that have you second guessing who Bea really is. I enjoyed the banter she had with her friends, Craig and Tammy. They were like a walking advertisement for "TMI" but it made them fun and very entertaining.
Andrew was an atypical male lead. He wore his heart on his sleeve and was very open about his desire for a relationship with Bea. I enjoyed his slight alpha male leanings mixed with the sensitivity that is sometimes lacking in male characters. His pursuit of Bea was refreshing and fun to watch.
I only have a couple of critiques. There is a scenario at the beginning of the book that felt completely unnecessary to the plot of the story. I won't spoil it for future readers but I will say that it felt gratuitous and a little too out of character. Also, Jones' dialogue is a little stiff at times. I never really felt like the book hit a groove and started to flow. I would even go so far as to say it was choppy and unpolished. I would have liked more character development which would have helped the ending seem a little more in line with the story instead of out of left field. Overall, it's a very "on the surface" sort of book that will do nicely if you are in the mood for a little light reading.
*I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

I love it! By the first two chapters I was in Awww over this book. I could not put it down.
Bea Spelling and Andrew Goode, the main characters in this book are sexy and funny.
I like the way Davee wrote this book. It was sexy, hot and not over the top with all the erotic sex.
The story line was the main focus of the book. I do recommend this book :)
