Beach Balls (Balls to the Wall #3)
I loved in the closet Adam. He was up front about it and spent most of the book questioning his life and the reasons for doing so. Sky was fabulous. The octopus incident had me laughing out loud. He was funny and sexy, and when they got together, they sizzled.
Another good read that is keeping me hooked on the Balls books.
Not sure how to review Beach Balls it didn't hit every button for me some of it was enjoyable and funny but there was a missing element in the relationship between Adam and Sky it wasn't as sexy or as dreamy as I would have liked. That sizzling attraction that made Fire Balls so good was not there or I just didn't feel it. Still it was a nice light easy read with a few cute moments.
Out of the four books in this series " Beach Balls " felt like it had taken a step away from the series. I was expecting this to be Jerry's story but Tara introduced two new characters who have never been mentioned before so that's possibly why it felt different. Looking back now, to when I first read it, I remember thinking then, that it almost felt as if it could have been a standalone outside of the series. Needless to say I still really enjoyed it. Adam and Sky have great chemistry and the p ...more
This book was a light and easy read. I liked both Adam and Sky and thought the story on how they met with the octopus was kinda cute. Unfortunately there just seemed to be something missing with the way the storyline was set up. I felt that as the reader I was given just enough information to move the story along, but never enough to feel connected with what was happening or with the characters completely. Still it was an enjoyable read.
As usual with Tara Lain, I enjoyed this quick, easy-to-read romance. Sky and Adam were both very appealing, and I liked the antagonism sub-plot and how they both affected each other's outlooks on life. It was rewarding to see Adam come out of the closet and find himself.
This was quite a good read. Not my favorite in the series but very good. Recommended!
It was cute, nothing deep or really exciting, like Candice I was missing a little something 'special'.
But I enjoyed it and sort of wished Sky had grovled a bit, I didn't see Adam as all at fault in this one, and thought Sky was a bit 'holier-than -thou', but he understood better at the end!
(view spoiler)[ I was also a bit thrown that they are moving in together, yet tell Adam's parents they don' ...more

Oh my, what a book, definitely my favorite of the Ball’s series.
Adam is an excellent character, very well written and I loved him. He is a lawyer working for a developer company and while he loves his job he is somehow an honest lawyer. Heh, I laughed at that in the beginning, but I soon saw how brilliant a character he was. His current case has him somehow in the blind. Not everything is revealed to him and that unnerves Adam. While his work has nearly ...more

A sweet, short story, not too much angst, easy to read, and problems that can all be solved beautifully by the end. In other words, a typical Balls to the Wall story.
What I like about these books is that appearances are often not related to the roles these guys play in their relationship - you get smaller tops or pretty boys taking charge, at least in the bedroom. That's something I always enjoy because it disrupts the predictable flow of expectation and actual behaviour.
This book was a bit m ...more
Not that this is a bad thing because I totally enjoyed the story.

Very hot scenes of course, but I really enjoyed the quiet moments - for the leads on their time together are defi ...more
Adam James is a CA developer. Sky Sea Mickeljohn is an environmentalist. Hmmm - need I say more?
The sparks and love that fly between the two makes for a romantic and VERY sexy story. I thoroughly enjoyed this installment and am anxious for the next.
I cried and I smailed ,it was good and the ending was perfect :)
Tara never disappoints and has another winner in this series.
Can't wait to read the next one maybe about Maurice(and I'm waiting for Jerry's story)...
Adam James, alias ‘James Adamson,’ is deeply in the closet. He’s in so deep that he takes weekend vacations at his friend Carly’s where other in the closet businessmen go to have sex without worrying about anyone knowing their true names. On one of Adam’s vacations to Carly’s as ‘James,’ Adam meets an underwater diver named Sky. So taken by Sky, Adam invites him back to Carly’s place for cocktails that evening and that is followed by some of the hottest sex Adam has ever had. Adam can’t explain ...more
I can't say I loved this more than the second book in this series, but I really liked it. We have two guys that are pretty equally matched, both physically and mentally. But they are pretty far apart in everything in between.Adam is a developer, lots of money, cares about appearances, drives a nice fancy car, ohh and pretends to be straight. Sky is a nature loving, rebreather diver, vegetarian, and openly gay.
They meet accidentally while Sky is diving and Adam is visiting a friend's house for a
