Book Review - Between Us (Sex on the Beach) by Jen McLaughlin

BETWEEN US by Jen McLaughlin
BOOK SUMMARY:
I’m just a girl…
I’m a famous country star who’s spent her life cultivating a good girl persona to avoid bad press, but I’ve reached my limit. I’m going away for spring break with my two best friends from college, and we’ve vowed to spend the vacation seeking out fun in the sun—along with some hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only thing I needed was the perfect guy, and then I met Austin Murphy. He might be totally wrong for me, but the tattooed bad boy is hard to resist. When I’m in his arms, everything just feels right.

And I’m just a guy…
I’m just a bartender who lives in Key West, stuck in an endless cycle of boredom. But then Mackenzie Forbes, America’s Sweetheart herself, comes up to me and looks at me with those bright green eyes…and everything changes. She acts like she’s just a normal girl and I’m just a normal guy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My past isn’t pretty, you know. I did what I had to do to survive, and she’d run if she learned the truth about my darkness. But with her, I’m finally realizing what it’s like to be alive. To laugh, live, and be happy.

REVIEW


Taylor Swift meets American Pie.

Mackenzie goes on spring break with her friends, wanting to find a guy to have a quick filing with.  Instead she finds bartender Austin, and it quickly becomes clear he is so much more than just a fling.  

Part of the Sex on the Beach series, this Young Adult romance is hot and steamy.  This is so much more than a good girl/bad boy love story.  This is a quick spring break read, but still full of substance as well as romance.   In spite of the short length of the book, the story and characters are well developed.

OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS
MATURITY RATING - 18+ very steamy
