Doughnuts were her weakness.If Sadie Mullins hadn’t been running on the beach to burn off the calories from her doughnut addiction, she wouldn’t have noticed the man not moving out in the water. Wouldn’t have dived in after him.Wouldn’t have met West Montgomery.The cocky bastard should have been thankful, grateful even. Of course, he wasn’t.That should have been the end of it. Of course, it wasn’t.Damn doughnuts.

Having hope was her weakness. If Sadie Mullins hadn't started to believe in love again, hadn't let herself fall for him, she wouldn't be feeling this way. Wouldn't have her heart breaking. Wouldn't regret meeting West Montgomery. The cocky bastard should have left her alone, let her forget about him. Let her move on with her life. Of course, he didn't. That could have been the end of it. Of course, it wasn't. Damn hope.

My Review:

Okay, so I won these from the author in a Facebook giveaway a while back. They’ve been sitting on my TBR shelves for a while, and now that I have all this extra time, I decided it was time to read them. And let me tell you, I could not put them down! I first found this author through a blog tour for the audiobook of Drumline, which I adored! And as usual, I immediately searched to find her on Facebook and other social media so I could tell her how much I enjoyed her book. Of course that led to me entering into a giveaway and winning these two. Now the first book ended on a cliffhanger, which I didn’t realize, I assumed maybe book two was just going to be her friend’s book. So when I got to the end of book one I had to immediately pick up the sequel and dive back in!

Book one is Wet and we really got to know our characters in this. We got the background for Sadie, and it made sense why she was so cautious and only open to casual. But then West came in, and wow, West was a hottie, and funny as well! But he was off limits to Sadie based on what her friend Rue’s rules for hooking up were, and at first Sadie totally agreed with what she’d dealt with. Things seemed to fall in place for the both of them though, even with some bumps thrown at them by a girl he grew up with. All of it was really steamy and sweet and then, the ending! Whoa!

Book two is Soaked and we got to pick up with a chapter from West. We had a few from him in the first book as well, although mostly it was from Sadie’s point of view, as this one was mostly as well. It really helped having West’s chapter. It made what happened at the end of book one make sense, in a way I had wondered about when I read it. Now, while I gave book one 5 stars, book two only gets 4 stars because of how Sadie kept not giving West a chance, and not realizing that Aubrey was in it for herself. That always irritates the crap out of me. But, West made up for it. And you’ll totally fall in love with him! We get our HEA at the end of book two, and it’s totally worth it. This book had more drama though, not all having to do with West, some with Sadie’s past, and that was crazy!

Loved the series overall, and can only hope the author will write more books for me to read soon, maybe even a story for a couple of characters in this book, Rue and Boone? Or Theo?

      It’s nice too, when you’ve been following the author based on one book, to find out that the others are just as good! Thanks for stopping by!
