REVIEW: Jen McLaughlin's Between Us

Between Us (Sex on the Beach)
I read this book first in the Sex on the Beach series and it was really what drew me into the novellas written by three authors. I have to admit that I would read anything by Jen McLaughlin. She is one of my favorite authors and this book didn't disappoint.

Miss McLaughlin has a way of creating these characters that manage to stick around long after you finished her books. I loved both the hero, Austin Murphy and heroine MacKenzie Forbes. I really connected with Mackenzie and thought that she was so well written. I also thought that Austin was nearly the perfect man. The way that Miss McLaughlin writes in character just jumps off the page and the characters seem like real everyday people that you meet.

The plot was sweet, America's Sweetheart wants to lose her virginity but every time it almost happens, she gets tagged with a bad reputation of sleeping around.

This is just a cute read. I read it in one night - in one sitting because I couldn't put the darn book down. When I get a new Jen McLaughlin book, I never start it late at night because I am already sleep deprived without staying up even later to read more and more.

I have to give this book five stars. It was a cleverly written plot, awesome characters and steamy sex scenes. This is a great read!

About the Book:

I’m a famous country star who’s spent her life cultivating a good girl persona to avoid bad press, but I’ve reached my limit. I’m going away for spring break with my two best friends from college, and we’ve vowed to spend the vacation seeking out fun in the sun—along with some hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only thing I needed was the perfect guy, and then I met Austin Murphy. He might be totally wrong for me, but the tattooed bad boy is hard to resist. When I’m in his arms, everything just feels right.

And I’m just a guy…

I’m just a bartender who lives in Key West, stuck in an endless cycle of boredom. But then Mackenzie Forbes, America’s Sweetheart herself, comes up to me and looks at me with those bright green eyes…and everything changes. She acts like she’s just a normal girl and I’m just a normal guy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My past isn’t pretty, you know. I did what I had to do to survive, and she’d run if she learned the truth about my darkness. But with her, I’m finally realizing what it’s like to be alive. To laugh, live, and be happy.

All good things must come to an end…
