This book was fine. I like the hero and the heroine. However, the romance takes place over the course of a week and so it is a bit fast. The hero had a crush on the heroine in high school and he is now a super hot rich guy while she is down on her luck. I really wish he was still nerdy. He can be hot and nerdy.  A quick easy read with flat secondaries.

Remember the labels that we used on each other in high school? Jock? Snob? Beauty Queen? Slut? Geek? Roxanne St. Claire has captured that time in our lives & brings the characters into adulthood. Proving that the labels we placed on one another may or may not be accurate later in life. Amanda “Mandy the Magnificent” Mitchell, head cheerleader & homecoming queen has returned to Mimosa Key where she now works at Casa Blanca Resort & Spa as a junior housekeeper. Her marriage didn’t work out and she is desperately trying to keep her head above water doing honest work. Zeke “Ezekiel the Geekiel” Nicholas, comes home for his father’s birthday. Zeke has made a name for himself; he has money, power & class. He is no longer the nerd from high school that spent hours contemplating mathematical equations. This muscular, handsome, billionaire gets Mandy fired from her job and only wants to help her. If he is able to get her into his bed, well that will be OK with him. Sit back & enjoy the first of the Billionaires of Barefoot Bay series.

Fantastic continuation of the original series. We are back at Barefoot Bay meeting some new friends, Amanda "Mandy" Mitchell and Zeke "Ezekiel the Geekiel" Nicholas. In high school she was the popular rich girl and he was the nerd. Funny how things can change. With it's great characters and heartwarming story this is one book you don't want to miss. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this book! Zeke and Mandy's story is very intense and I do love a book with depth to it. When I finished it I was really surprised that  although it's a novella I felt as if I had read a full length book. Very anxious for #2.. Seduction on the Sand in February!! I love Barefoot Bay!!!

This book is just like a rollercoaster ride, that Roxanne St. Claire, put you on as so as you start this book. First off you meet Amanda Lockhart, she working as a housekeeper at the Casa Blanca Resort and Spa. Where she run into someone from her pass Zeke Nicholas someone she went to high school with. Mandy Mitchell got married right out of college, and she married a very rich man and then the course of her life change forever, now she is working as a maid. When they were in high school he was known as the geek, and she was a Head Cheerleader, Homecoming queen, runner up for the Miss Teen Florida. Zeke is no longer a geek—he’s gorgeous, and very rich. Zeke is back in Mimosa Key for a week, because his mother is giving his father a surprise birthday party for his seventy birthdays. But his mother has other plans for her son at this party. She is planning to invite some of the single ladies to this party. But Zeke and Mandy have decided to throw a monkey wrench, into his mother plans. It has to do with a contract written on a paper towel. But now you are going to have to read the book to find out the rest of the story. If you are like me and you love romantic stories, well this is just the one to read. It will make you laugh out loud, and make you mad, and happy. The sparks that these two people have will keep you reading until the very end.

This is the 2nd time I read this & loved it both times. It is 123 pages but doesn't seem rushed. Would have liked an epilogue. Will read more by this writer, this is my second & I loved the other book too. GJRA

I found it to be a little 'cheesy' with some parts of the writing. A little immature but still enjoyed, just not a favorite read.

Zeke Nicholas was to adorable for words .. loved getting to know this place called Barefoot Bay this was my first read by this author and I was so gland that I took the time to check it out. The high school flash backs, the detail on every charter make this a fun read. Makes me want to read more on this series.

Secrets on the Sand by Roxanne St.Claire (Audio Edition) Narrated by Kaleo Griffiths The Billionaires of Barefoot Bay #1 3.5 Stars - This was a super quick read as it was a novella. The story was a feel good romance and I loved the plot of the hero getting his high school crush in the end. Mandy had a couple flighty moments which didn't make sense to me, and I sorta wished she’d secretly crushed on Zeke back in the day - but that's just me. Zeke knew what he wanted and had the money to use that to his advantage. He seemed like a caring man and I felt he truly wanted Mandy, I just wish I had felt a bit more chemistry between them. This is the first time I have heard a Kaleo Griffiths narration and while I like the tone of his voice and his clarity, I found he was quite breathy as if every conversation whispered - though perhaps that was the story as well.. it was very “hush hush” in parts. I would listen to another of his narrations.

A romance story of a once popular local high school queen who by misfortune now works at 30, as a made at a resort in her hometown of Barefoot Bay. Amidst the rivalry and one upmanship initiated by a coworker and high school alumni. Then she meets another high school acquaintance but Oh My how he has changed..... Drama, angst, petty rivalry, secrets, and romance with suggestive and descriptive sex. Some rough language. Also a part of the Romancing the Heart collection.

Mandy and Tori behave like they are in middle school. The story is unrealistic. It isn't that hard to divorce someone who has disappeared.

Sweet and sexy read between two old classmates. I'd call this sex-lite because there is plenty of sexual tension but no actual sex. 133 pages

Mandy is a maid for Casa Blanca, a resort on the beach. Zeke is a billionaire. They went to high school together and she was popular and he was the geek. When she gets fired, Zeke offers her five thousand dollars to start her own maid service. She doesn't want to just take his money so she makes him make a contract to be his "imaginary" girlfriend. But he wants forever and there are some obstacles to get over before that can happen. A very sweet love story.
