There’s a place where the ocean meets the shore, where kicking off your shoes and baring some skin is as natural as sneaking under the boardwalk for an ice cream cone and stolen kisses. But life isn’t all a beach for Shaye Cates, even if her idea of an office is a shady umbrella at the water’s edge equipped with cell phone and laptop. Steely-eyed Trace Saunders is the incredibly irksome fly in her coconut tanning oil. And running a kids’ softball team with her long-time rival is going to have everyone in her little Florida town buzzing. Her scads of laid-back relatives and his whole uptight clan know that Shaye just wants to play ball while Trace thinks only of business. But beneath the twinkling lights of the ferris wheel, the magic of sea and sand can sweep away every inhibition…Suddenly, it’s summertime, and the lovin’ is easy.
No Tan Lines by Kate Angell is a smart and sweet contemporary romance that is sure to become a favorite of many readers. Kate Angell has created a wonderful story featuring a cast of close knit characters from a small beach community. The contrast of the two main characters’ personalities kept me from putting this book down and I thought they complimented each other perfectly because of their different personalities. The build up to the climax of No Tan Lines was well written and had me reading long into the night. This is a perfect book for all fans of romance and its many subgenres.
