There's a place where the ocean meets the shore, where kicking off your shoes and baring some skin is as natural as sneaking under the boardwalk for an ice cream cone and stolen kisses.

But life isn't all a beach for Shaye Cates, even if her idea of an office is a shady umbrella at the water's edge equipped with cell phone and laptop. Steely-eyed Trace

Overview

There's a place where the ocean meets the shore, where kicking off your shoes and baring some skin is as natural as sneaking under the boardwalk for an ice cream cone and stolen kisses.

But life isn't all a beach for Shaye Cates, even if her idea of an office is a shady umbrella at the water's edge equipped with cell phone and laptop. Steely-eyed Trace Saunders is the incredibly irksome fly in her coconut tanning oil. And running a kids' softball team with her longtime rival is going to have everyone in her little Florida town buzzing. Her scads of laid-back relatives and his whole uptight clan know that Shaye just wants to play ball while Trace thinks only of business. But beneath the twinkling lights of the ferris wheel, the magic of sea and sand can sweep away every inhibition . . .

Suddenly, it's summertime, and the lovin' is easy.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Capulets and Montagues had nothing on the Cates and Saunders families, who own opposite sides of a Florida boardwalk town and live in cold disdain of their neighbors, in Angell’s lighthearted contemporary series launch. Shaye Cates is a natural beauty, happiest in shorts and flip-flops, who runs her family’s faltering businesses from the beach on the Barefoot William side of town. Handsome Trace Saunders is rarely seen without a suit as he manages a dignified and profitable real estate empire in a traditional office. A volleyball tournament that straddles both sides of the beach forces them to work together, and instant sizzle leads to inevitable romance, despite disapproval from both families. Other than a secondary romance between Shaye’s cousin and Trace’s ex, nothing much happens, but Angell does a great job of making the reader feel the sand beneath the characters’ toes. Agent: Roberta Brown, Brown Literary Agency. (June)

Enjoyed the first book in Ms. Angell's new series. Liked the beach and boardwalk beneath the Florida sunshine. Sexy, hot, and quirky characters. The parrot named Olive had me laughing out loud.

Characters were childish. The plot was unbelievable. Dont waste your time or money.

This book was all over the place. Childish and ridiculous. It needs an epilogue but instead just ends. I wouldnt waste the two dollars if i could go back in time knowing what i know now.

Easy read with not enough substance. Sweet story but it could have been developed deeper.

I'm not sure I'll even bother to finish this one. The characters aren't very interesting, the plot so far reads the way thin soup tastes, and the writing just isn't very pleasant. I find myself taking what's on the page and rephrasing it in my own head just so it'll sound better. The prologue feels so badly put together that I'm surprised I read any further. The leading characters both come across as such unpleasant people that my desire to see them suffer has become my chief reason to continue reading.

Awful all over the place! No real development to the story

Plot spoilers need to be banned, fined and forbidden from ever posting again. They ruin books. Why do you do that? There is absolutely no need to tell every single thing that happens, leaving nothing to be surprised over. Why even buy the book? You just told the entire book in your post. Bn, please stop these plot spoilers from ruining books like this in their reviews. Ban them, please.

I read the series out of order. Although I have loved the other books, this book felt very rushed! Still a wonderful cast of characters and I can't wait to read the rest of this series:-)
