Beyond Me by Jennifer Probst
March 4, 2014
New Adult Contemporary Romance
One of the “Sex on the Beach” Novellas
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 lies…or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in…
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 don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted…until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever…

Now I know why I will always read anything Jennifer Probst writes…..I thoroughly enjoy her writing and stories that she creates. Beyond Me is part of a Series called Sex on the Beach. There are two other authors in this series as well. After reading this book…I think I need to read the other two books. I love how Jennifer creates a story that is so relatable and realistic that you feel like a part of the story. I will say that yes this story was fairly predictable but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the story. This was a quick read, one that can be completed in less then a day. But unlike most novellas, this one didn’t leave you hanging. I felt that the pace of the book was great and I didn’t feel like anything was left out. This book is a great book to read to help you get over the winter blues :). This book was also off the charts HOT!!!! Jennifer did an excellent job creating a steamy book without it being crass and over the top. I truly can’t say enough about her writing.
This book in the series is about James and Quinn. James is a rich guy who has absentee parents and friends who just like him for what he can give them. My heart broke for James, because he truly was lonely and it took getting to know Quinn to really see that. I loved James’s character. He was just the right mix of swoony sweet guy and dominant Alpha! I was glad to see him grow as a person as the story went on. Even though James made a dumb decision in the beginning of the story that catches up to him in the end, I still loved him. Being that this book is written in Dual POV we got to see what he was really thinking and feeling. As for Quinn’s character….I liked her and didn’t find her annoying at all. She also had a troubled past, her mom dies at a young age and her father becomes an alcoholic, which in turn made him an absent father. Because of this Quinn felt she needed to help and save everyone. I loved how Quinn and James could be themselves with other…both of them let their walls down. This story is writing over the timeframe of a week which leads it to have that insta-love thing, but Jennifer has written it so we’ll I really didn’t find it hard to believe.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for that light fun summer read with a boat load of steamy ;). Also if you are a Jennifer Probst fan….you need to pick this book up.
