Sun, sand, and a hot guy. Sex on the beach, with no strings attached.
A chance to get rid of this pesky virginity once and for all.
And when I met Tyler McKenna, I thought I had it made.
Until someone gets hurt
But then girls started turning up at Key West landmarks. Girls who looked like me, but with one crucial difference: They’d all been drugged and relieved of their virginity.
The virginity I still have. The virginity Ty refuses to take.
And now I’ve begun to wonder whether there isn’t more to him than meets the eye.
Suddenly, sex on the beach doesn’t sound so good anymore…
Prepare yourself for Sex on the Beach, a trilogy featuring BETWEEN US (Jen McLaughlin), BEYOND ME (Jennifer Probst), and BEFORE YOU (Jenna Bennett). Three separate novellas. Three different authors. One literary world. Read them all, or just read one. It’s up to you! No matter which route you choose, these standalone novellas are sure to satisfy your need for sizzling romance and an emotion packed story.
From the author:
The Sex on the Beach trilogy started in the spring of 2013, when Jen McLaughlin, Jennifer Probst, and I decided to write and self-publish a continuity – a series of books set in the same universe and featuring the same characters, but written by different people. Our first idea – Jennifer Probst’s – was to write about three authors on a writers retreat on a tropical island.
Then we learned that one of our publishers was working on a continuity about writers on a retreat.
By then, it was the fall of 2013, and Jen McLaughlin had just self-published her first NA romance, and had great success with it. She suggested we move our focus from adult romance to NA, New Adult.
New Adult bridges the gap between YA – the Young Adult genre – and good, old-fashioned romance novels. The characters are out of high school, but still in college, or at least college age. They’re at a time in their lives when they’re trying to figure out who they are and where they want to end up. In some ways it’s even more fraught with emotion than the teenage years, since there’s still room for error while you’re living at home and haven’t yet reached majority. Once you’re out of the house and on your own, the mistakes get bigger and the consequences more dire.
Anyway, we decided to write a trilogy of New Adult novels. And to keep with our original tropical island theme, we decided to make it three college girls on spring break in beautiful Key West. Sun, sand, and hot guys.
Without further ado, we present the Sex on the Beach series, by Jennifer Probst, Jen McLaughlin, and Jenna Bennett. (Books to be read in no particular order, as they all take place at the same time.)
