CAN FUN IN THE SUN TURN INTO LASTING LOVE?
Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on liesâ€¦or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed inâ€¦
OR WILL A LIFE BUILT ON LIES RUIN EVERYTHING?
The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and donâ€™t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wantedâ€¦until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldnâ€™t pass it up. But sex wasnâ€™t supposed to turn into love. She wasnâ€™t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasnâ€™t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I canâ€™t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her foreverâ€¦
I dont think Ive ever read a book where Jennifer Probst has left me disappointed. From her Marriage to a Billionaire series to her Searching For series, Probst has a way of making me come back for moreand Beyond Me is no different! Having already read Between Us, I knew a little bit of Quinns storyline, but not enough to form a solid opinion on her. I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know both Quinn and Jamesand dare I say it: I think these two are my favorite of the three couples!
Quinn is the hardworking, mother-hen type of the group. Theres no tragic past shes running from, but she hasnt exactly had it easy growing up with an alcoholic father. Nevertheless, instead of letting that bring her down, its made her a strong, independent young womanwhich we dont see enough in New Adult. Quinn has her life (semi) together. She has two time-consuming jobs she loves, a strong head on her shoulders and a great support system. Still, life can get a little hectic and thats why shes on this vacation with her best friends. The plan? Find an attractive guy, have a no-strings-attached fling and finally have an orgasm. Thats not too much to ask for, right?
James and Quinn meet right off the bat and from the very beginning theres this hot, sexual attraction. Quinn can obviously tell hes a little too arrogant for her taste, but its not long before shes putty in his hands. Im always glad when theres more to a guy than a pretty face and full pockets. James appears to have it all but its only an illusion. Probst doesnt dwell too, too much on it, but underneath the slick persona James portrays, theres a small little boy begin for love and affection. There are these brief moments, here and there, where James lets down his guard and those are the moments in which Quinn falls in love.
I never have to be disappointed in Probst when it comes to the sexy times. At. All. James and Quinn? Even before they met, their attraction was strong, but once they finally get together, they burn the pages! James takes the term alpha to a whole new lever with Quinn. I couldnt get enough of them! And while I loved those wickedly decadent scenes, I also loved getting to know both of these characters.
Told in dual POVs, Beyond Me exceeds New Adult expectations, all the while being a short novella. Â While James and Quinns journey is a short one, their story is one that fills you up and stays with you. With enough sex appeal to have you blushing your cheeks off, this novellaÂ is definitely one youll want to pick up!
