Book Review ~ Sandcastle Kisses: A Billionaire Love Story by Krista Lakes

Sandcastle Kisses: A Billionaire Love Story 
by Krista Lakes
(The Kisses Series)
Publication date: April 17th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance

When Isabel Baker signed up to work the bar at a private party, she never imagined she’d get anything more than tips. However, on this resort island, nothing was ever that simple. When she arrived, she found herself paired up with a deliciously handsome bartender who was flown in for the special occasion. Noah had a quick wit, a charming smile, and eyes that she could drown herself in. At the end of the night, she barely managed to turn him away from coming home with her.

Noah had only come to the island for one of Jack Saunders’ famous parties, but now that he had met Izzy, he couldn't just leave. After a steamy night together, he knew that he would do anything to keep her.

Izzy had promised herself that she wouldn't fall for another tourist, but Noah was one of a kind. When she shared her passion for marine life with him, he took to it so easily that it seemed like he belonged in her world.

It would have been an easy love story, complete with the happily ever after, except for one thing: Noah refused to tell Izzy his profession or that he was worth billions. When his company and her marine research project collided, their entire relationship crumbled into the sand. Will they be able to rebuild their beautiful sandcastle together, or will it simply wash away into the ocean as just a memory?

Sandcastle Kisses: A Billionaire Love Story is book 5 in the Kisses Series, but can be read as a stand alone.

Sandcastle Kisses is the book you go to after a long, hectic day and just need to relax and escape, emerging yourself in a heart-warming romance that leads to a happily ever after.  From the opening paragraph I was instantly drawn into this amazing story.  It had just the right combination of drama, dream-worthy romance and steamy love scenes.

Krista Lakes has done an exceptional job of creating characters you can totally relate to and instantly care about.  Isabel is a very likable character who is flirty and outgoing but stands her ground on issues she firmly believes in.....even if it means losing someone she has fallen totally in love with.  Noah, oh man, who can't help but fall in love with this blue-eyed sexy man?  He is such a great character who even though has more money than he knows what to do with, he is still 'real' and the love he has for Izzy is so dang cute.  Both of them together - just plain adorable!

This was a truly enjoyable, fun read that has become one of my favorites!  Ms. Lakes is a 'new' author for me, but after reading this spectacular story, I am now a fan.  I can't wait to read more books from this awesome writer.  I would highly recommend Sandcastle Kisses to anyone wanting a light-hearted romance that will bring a smile to your face and that all around warm fuzzy feeling in your heart.  

My Rating:  5 out of 5 stars
