Liza Lemanski works at the County Clerk’s office. She knows her way around legal documents, able to spot a phony by a glance. All Liza wants is to adopt her deceased friend’s four-year-old; however, she needs the father to sign away his rights. But, Liza learns that the relationship her friend alluded to was fabricated.
At the start of the trilogy, I was on the fence about Nate. I did not have much on his personality, unlike his two friends, to draw an opinion. Book two gave a bit more insight, but not enough to reel me in. It did succeed in making me curious to learn how he got that scandalous reputation as a celebrity bad boy.
SCANDAL ON THE SAND delves deeper into Nate, answering all that I wondered about the man. In the beginning of the book, he came off as a jerk in his interaction with Liza. Yet, as I got deeper into the book, my opinion changed. Nate redeems himself as he grew and changed from the party-boy of his reputation.
I liked Liza since her introduction in SEDUCTION ON THE SAND. And the fact that she was no way impressed with Nate’s celebrity status or his money made her a fast favorite heroine. She continued to interest me with her pluckiness and determination. She is a perfect fit for Nate.
SEDUCTION ON THE SAND is a charming conclusion to THE BILLIONAIRES OF BAREFOOT BAY trilogy. The story is light-hearted goodness. It was nice to reacquaint with Tessa and Ian again. These spin offs always lend a deeper view into past books’ hero and heroine’s happily ever after.
