Salute to the Stud
A mystery sexter, a hookup, and some sexy yoga times...but real life isn't all rosy sunsets and walks along the beach.
Jasper is licking his wounds in paradise after being dumped, according to his ex, for someone more adventurous. The romantic Hawaiian getaway for two he booked hadn’t featured his sister as his plus one, but sometimes real life sucks.
For the two weeks...more
I liked the idea of a text message gone astray, although I'm still not sure I bought how the numbers got mixed up, but it was a sweet meet cute.
I liked both the MCs and I got a good sense of the Hawaiian location, even though they never travelled beyond the hotel and beach.
The 'big misunderstanding' followed a common trope but it was handled well and I liked that things didn't drag on for wee ...more

A sweet and lovable story. I loved Jasper and Tamal!
I really enjoy Beth’s writing. Her stories are so easy to read and have such lovable relatable and realistic characters! I love how she creates seemingly ordinary lovable men and gives them their happily ever after and Jasper is no exception!
I loved Jaspers quirky fumblings and Tamal’s sexy take charge attitude. These two ‘meet’ through a case of mistaken identity and an orchestrated private yoga encounter al ...more
This was *almost* an insta-love story, but thankfully the author didn't take it there.
For the most part this is a low drama story (aside from Jasper's ex showing up trying to cause some problems), so if you're looking for something fast, sweet and sexy then this is a good cleanser for you. Ju ...more
This book was alright, but as two key points to the whole story really didn't work out for me it didn't get any better than that. The whole idea of the cell.phone mixup was downright unusual, and it is never clear how this lady at the front desk would decide itade sense to get another person's number from a random patron. For a high end hotel that was just downright illogical. The texting irked me too, with the whole thing seeming a bit too unlikely to be the ...more
Salute to the Stud is a light, cute story with two sweet main characters. There is a meet cute element of mistaken identity here that leads into a vacation fling that turns to more. We spend most of the time in Jasper’s POV, so we get to know him better than Tamal, but for a shorter book, I think we get a pretty good sense of these guys overall. We get enough balance to their early relationship to believe there could be more between them than just sex, and Laycock ...more
Novella set in both Hawaii and London, the plot revolves around yoga. The lead couple swap the narrative, filling in their characters and those supporting the story. Good heat. Apt descriptions of the locales. Enjoyable.
As I am a gatherer of books, I collect books and ebooks from a variety of sources: Goodreads wins, Bookhub, BookFunnel, emails from authors and publishers, and others. I do lose track of their sources. But, as a reader, I feel I should give an honest, unencumber ...more

Salute to the Stud is a hot romance with the guys meeting during a trip to Hawaii.
I like the storyline, but something was missing for me. I couldn't connect to the characters, and didn't feel any real relationship forming.
As well, I didn't like the title, as it just seems corny to me. ...more
Jasper was a great character, likable and sweet. I didn’t feel a huge connection to him but I liked his vulnerability and his strength to move on.
Tamal was a character who made me think of Jason Momoa; definitely not a bad visual!
His character was a bit of a conundr ...more
Salute to the Stud is a quick and sweet read, but sadly that's all it is. Jasper and Tamal are nice main ch ...more
She has been reading romance since she was old enough to tell herself that line every book lover does—just one more chapter.
As a teenager she attempted to write her first novel, and many more since then that are still gathering dust on her bookshelf. It w ...more
