REVIEW + GIVEAWAY ~Beyond Me by Jennifer Probst~

Title: Beyond Me
Author: Jennifer Probst
Series: Sex on the Beach
Release Date: March 4, 2014

My Rating: 4.5 Stars

Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on lies…or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in…


The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted…until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever…

*Sigh* I love this novella, and I can't wait to read the companion books. This new adult story has everything I wanted- angst, love, scorching sex, and a heartwarming story. This is a quick, and fun read that had me needing and wanting more. I couldn't wait to read Cassie and Mac's stories because I knew I would love them just as much as I loved Quinn's.

Beyond Me starts out with three best friends Quinn, Cassie and Mackenzie heading off to Key West for Spring Break. They're not there for the usual MO. Mackenzie has made them all promise to get laid this spring break, and let loose. Quinn is dragging her feet until she locks eyes with James across a room. A little corny? Yes, but hell there's no judgment here because the corniness is soon counteracted with the hottest of sex and the sweetest of stories. James and Quinn can't get enough of each other. They find it all too easy to share their thoughts, and fears. Yet, the end of the week is always looming above them. Through a series of very frustrating and misunderstood actions James and Quinn find themselves alone and wondering how it all went to hell so quickly.

James is quite simply, perfect. Or as perfect as a man can be. He has his flaws but, he is so undeniably sweet, yet with a filthy mind, which I happen to LOVE. Quinn, is a responsible, giver type. Always thinking of others. Until she meets James. He makes her let loose and teaches her it's okay to be selfish sometimes. I think these two learned so much from each other. The imprint they left on one another goes much deeper than chemistry and a few piping hot rounds in the bedroom. And the end *cue swooning*, ah the end is what I live and breath for as a romance reader. The quintessential perfect, for now, ending. Beyond Me is a perfect, quick, fun read. And I am desperate for more from Quinn and James in future and I hope Ms. Probst feels the same way. I feel like they have more story to be told! The best part is that you can start with any book in the Sex on the Beach series because the story lines all happen parallel to one another. Since I got glimpses of Cassie and Mac's stories you better believe I already one clicked those bad boys and they're next in my TBR pile!

Happy Reading!

I’m just a girl…

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…

It’s all fun and games

I had a simple plan for spring break.

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…
