I was absolutely thrilled when I first started reading BODY SURF. The perfect combination of sexy and adorable was exactly what I needed and the last thing I expected was to find it on a beach.
Joe is taking the summer to work for his sister's husband after leaving college and having an argument with his father about it. He needs a break and direction, but he'll take the former if he can't come to terms with the latter. What he didn't expect was Cameron, a lifeguard who was everything Joe wanted in man. While Cameron seems unattainable, Joe is willing to try and what he eventually gains was well worth the risk.
Now while the beginning was quite frankly amazing, the rest of the book was pretty much overwhelmed by conspiracies and too fast solutions. The instant love that follows needed some work to be believable, but instead the author needed to focus on the conflict that was just a tad bit over the top. Even by the end, resolution of the same didn't work for me, but it bothered me more that the story lost the adorable feel and turned more toward the ordinary.
It was still a good little story but not really one of those that will make you sit up and pay attention. What is worth mentioning is Joe's sister and I would definitely like to see more of her in maybe another, future book.
