Hot Beach Romance


Reviewed by Jaime Kurp

15 wonderful romance stories all wrapped into one book! Could you go wrong with that? No! You know I don’t give anything away about the stories I read and reading these stories don’t change that. If you don’t read these then you are missing out on some great stories of love and romance. These stories are great for a rainy day or just a way to escape from reality. Good reads.

The Good: This compilation of stories was a near perfect set of summer reading material. All of the stories have a summery, vacation feel to them. None of them were too heavy on drama or sadness.
The Bad: The majority of the stories were the perfect length. There were a couple, that were just a tad slow for me. They felt unnecessarily drawn out, but nothing that really ruined the story.
All in all, I enjoyed this set of stories. I would definitely read any other works from the authors included.

I have read two of the stories, both of which are 5 stars. I am looking forward to new-to-me author EmKay Connor's book, as well as the others.

*I will update this review as I read each story.

The two stories I read and thoroughly enjoyed:

So far I have only read one book in this bundle - ECSTASY BY THE SEA by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. However, I am so looking forward to reading all the other books, too!


The thing I love most about the Bytes of Life is that we get to follow characters I wasn’t ready to let go of from Countermeasure (first full length novel in the Countermeasure Series). The Bytes of Life stories are glimpses into what life is like for the characters when they are not in the mi

This is a fabulous collection of stories that will keep you entertained for a long time. I enjoyed each one and loved the diversity of the stories. There is a great story about young love featuring a homeless teen and the college student who finally makes a connection with someone. There is a real touching story about finding love again in the case of a widow and her husband's best friend. There is also a menage with a graduate student and two Irish exchange students which is really hot. The sto ...more

15 stories for .99.. that alone is totally worth it. These stories were amazing. They were light, flirty and totally fun for anytime of the year but loved the summer aspect of them. There was a great variety in this box set, some were soft and easy and sweet.. others were hott and sexy and yum. ;) some were a mixture of both. I found a few new authors to add to be TBR also. Very good and I am so glad I got to r

This is a review for Ecstasy By the Sea by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey.

This is a short story to be read between the two main stores, Countermeasure and To Russia With Love. It gives a glimpes into the daily life of the characters.

Cassandra and Trevor take a short honeymoon planned by Trevor himself to a beautiful hotel by the sea. It starts out with a walk on the beach and builds from there...they can't keep their hands off of each other.
