Stella Lewis is determined not to end up like her mother; a reckless woman who moved from man to man without care for the impression that it left on her young daughter.  As a result, Stella rarely dates and solely focuses on growing her antique business.   So, when her best friend invites her for a weekend getaway at her beach house, Stella is over the moon at the opportunity to discover the hidden treasures in the attic.  What Stella did not expect is to be sidetracked by an alluring temptation of the handsomely, annoying playboy, Ian Hollis.

For three years, Ian Hollis has been trying to catch the attention of Stella Lewis but she refuses to give him the time of day.  Nonetheless, at every opportunity, Ian shameless flirts with Stella hoping she would finally give him the chance to prove that he is more than a rich playboy.  Because beneath her aloof exterior, Ian knows lays a fabulous, sensual woman waiting to break free and to be cherish by him.  So, when he discovers that they will be spending a weekend together at a mutual friend’s beach house, Ian is determined to win Stella’s heart.

I am really enjoying Lyric James’ Beach House Nights series.  With each new release, the storylines just keep getting better and better.  Her third standalone installment, Up All Night is an incredible, heartfelt read because of Stella’s emotional baggage.  While I scream at Stella to give Ian a chance, I completely understand her internal fear against taking a step that she perceives as reckless behavior that her mother committed time and time again in the past.  I admire Ian’s strength of character and his wholehearted compassion towards Stella.  It’s no wonder why she has a difficult time fighting the intense attraction between them.  Their sexual encounters were plentiful and lustfully romantic; definitely, body temperature raising moments.  All in all, Up All Night is a spectacular read!

Violet Tanner is having the worst week of her life.  First, she was demoted on her job due to budget cuts; then, her pathetic excuse of an ex-boyfriend ended their relationship via email and finally, her upstairs neighbor forgot to turn off his water resulting in flooding her apartment. So when her one of her best friends invites her for a fun-filled weekend party at her beach house, Violet jumps at the chance to escape everything. When overhearing Violet’s upsetting declaration Logan McMasters knows this is the perfect moment to make his move.  After countless nights of pining over her, Logan is about to make his all of dreams come true featuring he and Violet in the most intimate way possible.  Now, all Logan needs to do is to persuade Violet that they belong together. Something Wet is a spicy, passionate, short and sweet novella that will leave you breathless with great desire.  The chemistry between Violet and Logan is flaming hot and neither can avoid the intense, scorching hot erotic tension that sparks amongst them.  I am fanning my blushing face just reminiscing about their heated sexual encounters.  Whew!  In addition to the blazing sexual interactions, whereas, Violet and Logan are longtime acquaintances, I really like how they uncover more meaningful, innermost information about each other over the course of the weekend.  Overall, I found Something Wet to be a great read. Something Wet is book two in Lyric James’ Beach House Night series and can be enjoyed as a standalone novel.

In order to stop self-pitying over her cheating ex-boyfriend, Dayna Walker decides to throw a summer party at her beach house.  Although, it been six months, Dayna heart is still heavy with betrayal so much so she can’t even say his name, he is simply known as “The Mistake.”  Then, to Dayna’s surprise and unexpected delight, her ex-boyfriend’s best friend shows up at her party to check in on her.

For the past two years, Jared Stephens has gotten good at hiding his true feelings for Dayna Walker.  As his best friend’s lady, Jared could only secretly admire her from afar.  Now, that his best friend has foolishly made the biggest mistake of his life, Jared is not about to allow the perfect opportunity to claim Dayna as his own slip through his fingers.

I found Lyric James’ Lover’s Revenge to be an awesome read that I swiftly consumed half way through my lunch hour.  This yummy narrative quickly raised my body temperature to a sweltering boiling point that dawdled within long after the conclusion.  For Dayna, what starts out as a lover’s revenge suddenly turns into a lover’s awakening because Jared is determined to show her what it feels like to be loved and cherished by a devoted man and he definitely shows her in the most passionate way imaginable.  Wickedly, lustful behavior is at the forefront as Dayna and Jared explore each other’s bodies in the most intimate way possible.  Lover’s Revenge is a tale not to be missed!
