I should have known when the synopsis disclaimer said that this book is ‘…angst-filled, slow-burn epic love story…’ that this book was going to bring me to my knees…did it ever.
Reid and Sienna have known each other their entire lives. Sienna’s twin brother is Reid’s best friend. When the two are forced to travel back home the attraction they’ve fought for years comes racing to the front. They both have done their best to stay away from each other but being forced together has turned into a blessing…or so they think.
That cliffhanger had me yelling! I wasn’t paying attention to how much I had left of the book, so when I got to the end I wasn’t prepared! I am in LOVE with Reid and Sienna. The push and pull between them is crazy. I can’t get enough of them, I am dyinggg for the next book! These two ladies have done it again, they’ve written a book that I didn’t want to put down. Absolutely amazing.

Meet Claire Raye:
Not only is Claire Raye a really sweet pen name, it’s actually a pen name for two sarcastic best friends who met through their mutual love of reading. After bonding over books (and wine and cheese), Claire and Raye decided to take the plunge and see if they could write a book together and ta dah… The Rockport Beach Series was born! In addition to their shared love of food and dropping an occasional (read: a lot) of f bombs, the writing duo that is Claire Raye like to write about strong sassy females who aren’t afraid to say what’s on their mind and the overprotective men who fall in love with them.
Writing The Rockport Beach Novels was so much fun, even if book two needed a shared vacation, a stolen bottle of champagne and far too much vodka and POG to get it back on track! Both halves of Claire Raye are married and both of their husbands have a cheeky side that gets plenty of airtime in their books. From their smart mouths to their witty one-liners, there’s plenty of material to use for all those alpha males Claire and Raye love to write about.
While Claire and Raye aren’t sure they’ll ever reveal who they really are – there’s just something about your co-workers knowing you write erotic love scenes that makes having a pen name that much easier – they are definitely going to keep on writing. With several more books out since the Rockport Beach Series released, Claire and Raye are constantly chatting new ideas, new plots and of course, their next couple! So stick around, there’s so much exciting stuff to share with you all!
