Surf's Up (Don't Read in the Closet Events)
I've had this beautiful man as my desktop wallpaper for two years now... I see a new story every time I look at him. I think he's waiting for someone, maybe someone he doesn't know; I love the way his posture echoes the woman in the mural - is this picture at the beach? What kind of van or truck is he leaning on? Maybe it's a delivery van, and he's trying to c ...more
Awesome characters, nice scenery, a mildly hot sex scene.
A sweet, enjoyable read.
*** 3,5 Summer stars ***
Ah, summer, beach, sand, holiday, romance.... It warmed me up on a cold day in February. A sweet and good tale of a summer romance with a bit of a twist or two. Nice ending which left the story open for more.
As a side note, though, the prompt says the picture prompt has been the desktop wallpaper for two years. This picture is nice and all, but really? There are a LOT of other and much greater pictures out there! Come on, live a little and change you wallpaper more often.

Can't afford a condo but you can bet your.....I can and will buy some Sarah Madison!
This was a great story. Ryan is perfect. Daniel is the perfect beach bum/hotel employee.... an employee who comes across as not doing his job most of the time.... :)
This was a great read. Definitely one of my faves of the Hot Summer Days stories.
Oh, and the picture is HOT.
it was short and sweet mind you but a good read! the characters were perfect for each other
the ending was really nice and the bomb shell unexpected (^.^)
Sarah Madison has a large dog, and an even bigger horse, too many cats, and a very patient boyfriend. She enjoys photography, hiking with her German Shepherd, and competing her horse in the sport of combined training and eventing. Writing has become a passion that sometimes ...more
