Life’s a beach… and then you meet the guy of your dreams.

Flynn Wright’s role on the upcoming teen drama Coconut Cove means a fresh start in the land of crystal water, palm trees, and gorgeous people. The move to the beautiful beaches of Key West, Florida—and away from LA and his conniving ex—is just what Flynn needs.

Meeting sexy bartender Seth is the cherry on top of Flynn’s colorful frozen drink, and he can’t wait to take a taste. But Seth isn’t impressed by Flynn’s Hollywood good looks, nor is he interested in the complications of dating an actor, no matter how hot.

Can Flynn dodge his scheming ex and the eager paparazzi while showing Seth that he is more than a pretty package?



With a backdrop of white sand beaches, blue water, and palm trees, Life's a Beach seemed like it would be the perfect Saturday afternoon read ... and it definitely was. I really enjoy Poppy Dennison's writing -- it's fast paced, full of flirty, swoony moments, and characters you can't help but really like. This is a re-release and part of the Coconut Cove series, and I can say I'm looking forward to more. The premise is a television series full of gorgeous twenty-somethings that focuses on teen drama. Heck yes and please! 

Flynn Wright needs a break, both for his acting career and from his ex-boyfriend. When his agent lands him a starring role on the upcoming series, Coconut Cove, Flynn jumps at the chance, especially since he needs to move to Key West. The farther away he can get from his ex the better and he's excited about what the television series can do for his career. When he meets sexy local bartender, Seth, well, things are certainly looking up, especially since their chemistry sparks right away. I enjoyed their interactions, they were sexy and flirty and fun. 

There's really not a whole lot of depth or background ... and it's not a bad thing. This is a novella after all, and it's only the first book in the series. Things move quickly as they're apt to do in a book of this length --about 85 pages--so there's not a lot of time and space to explore and develop. For that reason, with exception of a few moments of drama that you'd expect with nefarious exes and stalking paparazzi, Life's a Beach is a lighthearted, fun romp and it's a nice beginning for what I hope is a series full of the cast of characters introduced in the first book. I'm definitely looking forward to more and you will be too once you check this one out.
