    2.75 smokin' stars Strap in Cam Jackson, she thought. You're in for the time of your life.Cam has had his eye on Kristi for years, she's become something of an obsession for him. He learns that Kristi has broken up with her boyfriend, so he takes a shot...Kristi has had a crush on Cameron for years. But he's always been unattainable, always in a relationship, and she's never been his type. Until now. Kristi seizes her chance to have a night with Cam, but only as a rebound...This is my first book by Sabrina York, and it's great! It has romance, and erotica, and also, little bits of angst, and drama.It's written really well. Although, I have to admit there isn't that much depth to the characters, but it's a shortie (and erotica), so that's to be expected!As soon as you start, you get whipped up into the romance between the two MC's Cam and Kristi. Which is portrayed in two POV's which are easy to tell who is who, and doesn't repeat the scenes back to you. "This is the Cam Jackson show. You are a canvas, and I'm painting on you."The characters are really quirky, and are thoughtful of others, which is a kinda sweet aspect, which I wasn't expecting. Like when (view spoiler)[Bella told Kristi that she knew about her 'sleepover' and that she has had a crush on him for ages, and Kristi temporarily breaks it off.

    Could not stop laughing. Thanking the good Lord I did not take this serisously. Tell me how I could ever take a book seriously when it uses the following "vernacular"" "His balls tightened into hard little nuts."? Can't? Right? It's a good thing. Setting / Time / Genre: San Juan Islands, US, currentSeries: YesSexy times: Everyone is schtupping or at least wants to be. Plan on reading more by the author:I do not know. Apparently I have another one of her books on my kindle and I "Hell No'd" one of her historicals. Synopsis Friends since college, the guy, Cam, finally realizes that gal, Kristi, is all that and a bag of chips so naturally, on a weekend at the vacation house they all share, he maneuvers things so that there's a tryst or nine. Pepper this with a set up for a continued series, an annoying moment with her sister and some other stuff and well...I guess you got a novella. Why it did or didn't work for me: Ok, the best part of the book that worked for me? All the terrible awful sex descriptions. I seriously spent the afternoon laughing like an idiot. ermahgerd...the best. Saliva pooling only to be sipped on up....and wombs clenching. I call that childbirth but what the hell do I know. Signed, Not much here - sorta worth the diversion. Sorta. Yea, I'm outta this one.

    Heat Level: 3 out of 4 flamesOverall: 4 out of 5 starsReviewed by Naughty Book Snitch: MindySee Mindy’s Blog Review Here I'm not really sure where to start because there is so much story packed into this little 84 page book. Kristi is having a really bad day and is in need of a weekend getaway with some of her close friends... aka, "Dawgs". Cam, is one of her friends that she has secretly been crushing on for a very long time and he happens to be there this weekend. When Kristi arrives at the vacation home everyone has gone out partying except Cam. So, why not play a game of poker where the bet is just one innocent kiss? Well, Cam is hardly shy about it and is throwing the game like he's a teenage boy who's just hit puberty and is about to watch his first porn. But Kristi is his match in this game. "Because whatever beast lurked in him, prowled within her as well.""He flipped her over and yanked down her panties, so she stood before him, bared to him, bent over the table, legs splayed as far as her pooling jeans would allow. Without a word, he unzipped his jeans, yanked out his cock, and thrust it home." That scene gave my stomach butterflies and I had to seek out my husband ASAP! All of the sex scenes in this little book are exceptionally detailed and hot. I really liked this short story.So, I bet you're wondering why only 4 stars? Well, first I feel like it was a little rushed. I know it's a short story, but there is so much more story to be told and therefore felt a little incomplete. Maybe that's the selfish part of me coming out. Second, I don't know who chapter 9 was about. Maybe that was on purpose to get me to come back? If that's the case then this author was successful! For an erotic short story, it was very compelling and the reader gets sucked into this world very quickly. You can see the intricacy of the story start to develop and personalities of all the different friends come out. This is why I said there is a lot of story packed into this short book. This is very well written and Sabrina York has a new fan. Overall, I really liked this and can't wait to read more of this series and even more from this author. I absolutely love the friends turned to lover troupe and this was well done. The sex is steamy and satisfying with lots of delicious details. I'm left hanging a little with the last chapter and who it's about and I am very curious about Holt and his shenanigans. BUY THE BOOKClick below for more Naughty Book Snitch reviews

    3 stars”Wangdoodles and va-jay-jays.”A weekend away is exactly what Kristi needed and what better way to spend it than with her ”Dawgs”, especially after officially ending her relationship with her prick of an ex, ”the Dawgs, as they called themselves— the eleven souls who’d lived in McCarty Hall at the University of Washington and formed a bond while screaming at the television during football season.”Cam, is the only one Kristie has ever been secretly lusting after, but the problem is they’ve always just been friends. So this time, they find themselves alone in their vacation home that the group all co-own, while everyone is out partying. Cam wants to play a game, one Kristie doesn’t think she can survive. Little does she know she isn't the only one struggling with need, so they play for a kiss, one they secretly hope will lead to so much more. Out of the entire time they’ve known each other, they have never been single at the same time”…she’d long ago learned that heartbreak could come whether you were careful or reckless. Might as well be reckless.”Things heat up quickly and they are both learn they are the perfect match in and out of the bed”He’d known she’d be like this in her passion. Wild. Unrestrained. Demanding. He loved it. Fucking loved it… but he wanted, needed, more.“****************************************A Fun short read, I really wasn’t expecting much but, I was surprised at how much the author was able to put in. We all read the story of friends who became lovers but it was the dynamic of the group that made it interesting for me. The sex scenes were sometimes hilariously descriptive but steamy in it’s own way. What I liked is that they both went after they wanted.It was a great introduction to the gang, which it looks like we will be seeing more of in the coming books. Each person had a different personality and you can see the web being built. There was a little jealousy drama, some possessive-chest-puffing match, but nothing over the top because well it's a short book. This book did get me excited to see what’s in store next. It kinda reminded me of 90210 and Melrose place.

    My Rating: ★★★★ VERY GOOD: The characteristics of a 4 star book include: a great story; I loved the characters; and there was an interesting plot and unique story elements; there may have been a few odd things kept the story from being amazing. I would read it again and I would recommend it to a friend. My Thoughts:This book was hot. I will totally confess that it had me fanning my face to cool down. But, the thing that I really liked about it was, that although it was short, the story was strong and contained a solidity to it where you could feel the connection between the characters. I loved Cam! And, Kristi was pretty cool too. I enjoyed the byplay and the group dynamics of the Dawgs and so so look forward to seeing what happens next.Ratings Detail:Rating for female protagonist: 4★Rating for male protagonist: 4★ Steam Level: 4★ Plot Viability: 4★ General Storyline: 4★ Story Ending: 4★ Ease of Reading: 4★ Book editing: 4★Cliffhanger: NoOverall rating: 4★Would I recommend this series: Yes.Would I continue the series: Yes.Would I read other books by this author: Yes.For more of my reviews visit The BookChick Blog

    I'm not going to lie, guys, I picked this up for the cover. Because that cover is sexy. The good news is that the story didn't disappoint. It's a nicely naughty (while still being very sweet) friends-to-lovers read that made me want more! And with the group of friends Kristi and Cam are surrounded with, I'd have to guess that there are plenty more stories to tell.But enough about their friends, lets talk about the LONGING that Kristi's had for Cam FOREVER. She's wanted him since they were in college but she thinks she's "not his type" based on the other women he's dated. Meanwhile, Cam's got a hard-on for Kristi but circumstances (the two of them never being single at the same time) makes him keep his distance. Apparently, the stars aligned this time around and they were able to do naughty, naughty things to one another when no one was looking.Bottom line: the book worked for me. I liked Cam. I liked the crazy eyes both of them got when they saw the other with someone else (even when it was innocent). The sex was hot. The friends were fun. The potential for more sexy shenanigans in the future makes me grin.-Kelly @ Reading the ParanormalRebound was a free Kindle book I downloaded on 05/06/13 for the Why Buy the Cow? reading challenge.

    First in a new series from this author and such a light quick read that it's impossible not to like it. If you are searching for a steamy read then this book delivers. Naughty but nice and can I just mention that cover? Amazing cover art and definitely a reason to pick up this book for me! Does the story deliver on the promise of the cover though? It's essentially a series about a group of friends sharing time away from their everyday world and all it's problems at a dream vacation home. This story features Kristi who has recently split up from her cheating boyfriend but realises that they were going nowhere anyway. She's always had the hots for Cam but he wouldn't be interested in her, would he? Well apparently he's had his eye on her for sometime and now they are both single it seems like the right time to do something about it. Rebounds are never a good idea but sometimes it's the right thing to do.It's a short book but surprisingly it flowed very well. Characters are likeable and both deserve that special someone in their life who will truly care about them. It's almost a comedy of errors at times as the couple try each other on for size whilst trying hard not to give too much away to their mutual friends. Is Cam the only guy interested in Kristi? Maybe not! One thing for certain if theres any competition then Cam will certainly rise to the challenge ! Expect some good loving and fun shenanigans from this one!Its a short tale but a fun one. Lots of supporting characters to get in the way and probably get their own stories told soon. Quite a lot going on considering the length and a plot that developed nicely. There's one particular side character that I suspect will definitely get his own book and that will probably be a very raunchy one. As it's the beginning of a series obviously there's still a lot to learn about the other friends who holidayed on Tryst Island but I found it easy to read and had no trouble understanding what was happening. If a short sexy book about old friends reconnecting and acting on a mutual attraction sounds good to you then pick up this book. A new author to me but definitely one to watch.

    Complimentary copy received through Netgally in exchange for an honest review.*******3.5 stars rounded up to 4.For such a short read, I rather enjoyed this book. "You know Kristi, I cant remember a time when we were both...single"Her heart seized. "What?"..."Think about it. Since the day we met, one of us was always in a relationship"........"I was thinking we could play for something""S-something?""A kiss maybe?"So what happens when two friends, both single at the same time for the first time, decide to act on the attraction they feel for each other?As I say, a very quick, but hot and sexy enjoyable read. I love when we get the H pov as well as the h. I like to see how emotionally involved they are in what is happening too, and it certainly added something here, a depth to the relationship that might have otherwise been lacking, given the shortness of the book and the time-scale involved in the story. In fact, Cam as a character was very endearing.For a short book, for me, there were a couple too many secondary characters introduced or spoken about. I found myself having to flip back a couple of times to remind myself of who a person was and their connection to the main characters. Also, some of the terminology used, for certain body parts was a bit, well, 80's Mills and Boon. For example: "Milky Globes" "Tingling slit" "Stiff pike" "Creamy depths" It was a bit jarring at times.It also ended rather abruptly. There were a few formatting issues - line breaks in the middle of a sentence sometimes for example, and could have done with proper page breaks between Chapters. If this was just a kindle issue I am unsure.However, I did enjoy the book, and this is a new to me author, but, I will be continuing on with the series, as a couple of secondary characters caught my interest and I would love to read their story.

    Book and coffee shop owner Kristi Cross needs a break from her hectic schedule. She heads for the vacation beach house she shares with a group of college friends on Tryst Island, just off the coast of Washington State. Upon arrival, she finds that her college crush, Cameron Jackson, is also staying for the weekend. Even better, he is recently single and seems determined to get Kristi into his bed! Kristi quickly finds that sex between them is amazing, but she wants more than just a weekend fling with Cam. Is he willing to give her his heart as well as his body? This is a fun, quick read which does not skimp on steamy action between the sheets (or on the pool table)! The camaraderie among the group of friends feels genuine, and Kristi and Cam are likeable characters. Kristi, especially, is strong and sassy and not afraid to stand up for herself or put someone in their place if needed, be it a good friend or her jerk of an ex-boyfriend. The sex between the main couple is lusty and energetic, occurring almost immediately, and a bit of a wait to build more sexual tension would have been nice, but immediate gratification works, too! Biggest complaint is that it’s too short! However, more novellas set on Tryst Island are in the works, and this is a good introduction to the series as well as a pleasurable beach read to get one in the mood for summer.

    This is a short novella length introduction to the group of long-term friends that share a beach-house together in Washington State. Kristi has had a bad day: walking in on her long-term boyfriend bonking her best waitress, she’s really going to miss the waitress. In a last minute decision, she heads to the beach house that she and her friends share, to get away for the weekend. The first person she encounters is her long term crush, Cam. Not knowing that he too, is on the rebound, the two start a flirtation that goes from simple revelations to swift, steamy hot sex. Nearly getting caught out by the rest of the housemates several times, the two quickly realize that this rebound relationship may have potential for more. Characters with clever conversations, a few mix-ups with ‘who wants who’, and some starkly sensual steamy scenes, this is a great introduction to this group of friends set in the Pacific Northwest. I received an eBook ARC copy from the author for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    That. Was. Hot. More? Ok, fine. That was really hot. :o)I can't put my finger on it, but Rebound seemed like a new side of York's writing that we haven't had before. Rebound had all the essentials that make up a super steamy York book, but with a twist of light and fluffy romance with just a hint of kink. I loved it! Cam and Kristi had perfect chemistry with their playful banter between the two of them and with their friends. They have a couple misunderstandings that had me cracking up.I love series of books that involve friends. You know that there is a built-in relationship that everyone already has, but there will also be a budding romance between the characters. The first book is always the best because I love watching how the secondary characters act with each other and try to pick out what the other couples are going to be. I think I know who is in love with who and I can't wait to see if I'm right. Bring on the rest of the Tryst Island series, Sabrina! :o)

    Jesus Cam sure knows how to make my panties wet, and a certain part of the boy has a mind of it's own, "and his co** was rather insistent. His co** wanted to be in her. Now." And well Kristi can wound his fragile male ego and the boy has to defend it, "it wasn't a fluke. I'll have you know, I'm damn good in bed." And he's not afraid to say what's on his mind, "best effing night of my life. I'd like to top it tonight. Right now. Why don't we, I dunno, go for a walk?" He didn't fancy effing in the woods, but hell, he needed her again. And the squirrels probably wouldn't mind." I loved this story from start to finish it was entertaining.

    Sabrina York first caught my attention with her short story, Saving Charlotte, story number two, in the Smokin' Hot Firemen Anthology. After that, I checked to see what else she'd written, and stumbled across Rebound which was free on Amazon at the time. Of course that gorgeous cover drew me in, and the blurb sounded like some hot fun. I was not disappointed.I like the idea of the stories in this series surrounding a group of old college friends who share a vacation house to get away from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Each book features a different set of friends vacationing at the same time, and one couple will go through a big change of finally finding the love that had eluded them thus far.Kristi Cross was my type of heroine. A little bit shy, a little bit feisty, loyal and caring and usually putting other people ahead of herself. She'd had a crush on Cameron Jackson for years, but she'd been effectively friendzoned. While they both commiserate over their new single status, Cam finally sees what had been in front of him for years, and he decided to see what was behind door number two. Kristi had wanted exactly that for too long, she wasn't about to back down like a coward. With this one statement, I fell in love with her: But she’d long ago learned that heartbreak could come whether you were careful or reckless. Might as well be reckless.Cam was adorable and hot! I don't think he ever meant to hurt Kristi's feelings by either not noticing or not acknowledging her crush on him. I really liked the honesty with which he portrayed his thoughts on the matter. He simply hadn't had romantic feelings towards her at the time. But with time and experience comes perspective, or so I like to think.I absolutely believed their chemistry because it was built on the foundation of friendship first. I also had no trouble seeing exactly why he was attracted to Kristi. I also loved the teasing banter they engaged in both in and out of the sheets. Amidst the wildly sexy times, there was also a little drama, courtesy of her pissed off sister, Bella. There had been some bad blood between them ever since high school when Kristi began dating the boy who had dumped Bella for her. One thing that can be said for Bella, she has a hot temper and she can hold a grudge. I have a feeling her story will be really interesting.I'm crazy about this series because even though the stories are short, the characters who make an appearance all have enough face time that will peak your curiosity; you'll want to read their stories, find out what had happened in their past and who they will end up with. I loved the prose, the dialogue felt fresh, fun and flirty. It was often humorous without sounding juvenile, and I absolutely appreciated that the author made her characters talk things out to solve their problems rather than stubbornly refuse to communicate thus creating even more problems. And damn if this author doesn't know how to write some really hot scenes! There's one scene beneath the patio deck of the house…. Sorry. You'll have to read to find out what happened ;)Note: Each book is a complete story. There are NO CLIFFHANGERS! Although you will catch some glimpses of past couples in the following books. You might get a little lost if you just jump in anywhere in the series, so I would suggest starting at the beginning, but it isn't an absolute necessity.Favorite Lines:“We need to talk, Cam.” He sucked in a deep breath and blew it out slowly in an attempt to regain control of his wayward lust. Fuck. A conversation. He hated conversations. Especially at moments like this. Right now his warrior was riding high. He wanted nothing more than to conquer. Storm the castle. Plow through her defenses. His battering ram was primed and ready to go.~*~She wrapped her legs around his waist and tried to pull him all the way in. It didn’t work. He just chuckled and kept up the deliberate torment. So she decided to torment him right back. She squeezed. He flinched. “Don’t do that,” he growled.~*~“Okay, Mr. Jackson. You’ve convinced me. We’ll try a little spanking tonight.” She shot him a fiendish grin. “But I sure hope your ass can take it.” The look on his face was priceless.Rating: 4.5 rounded up to 5

    First posted on Reader's Edyn (blogspot)Holy cow! What a book to come back to! I have been on a bit of a hiatus and chose to read Ms. York’s book first. Having read her stories before and knowing jut how great her stories are, I had high expectations. Expectations well delivered on once again. If you haven’t experienced Ms. York before, I hope you will consider giving her a try. REBOUND is a novella so would be a great way to get a taste of Ms. York’s writing style without having to invest time into a full length novel. And what is great is that this novella is the first in a new series: Tryst Island Erotic Romance. If you enjoy what you experience, more will be soon to follow. A little about the characters. Kristi has just walked in on her boyfriend of three years and another woman; one of her waitresses in the storage room of her very own business to be exact. But the romance had fizzled out a long time ago, so pissed but not entirely surprised, she has no one to blame but herself for staying in the relationship. Wounded, she heads off to Tryst Island to collect herself. A getaway of sorts, owned by friends, she and several college friends periodically make their way to the retreat in an effort to detox from everyday life and enjoy themselves. But Kristi quickly encounters a snag when she realizes that Cam is one of the house guests. Cameron Jackson. The love of her life since college. Well, maybe not love exactly, but lust for sure. Problem is that Kristi does not believe she is Cam’s type. Her full-bodied, curvy figure is not what Cam usually goes for. So on the heels of her break-up, she will also have to endure close contact with the man she has always desired but will never have.Cameron too has come to the island to move forward following a recent break-up with his longtime girlfriend. No one is displeased with the split; never really accepting his snotty ex anyway. But Cam also has other ideas on moving forward for this trip. One woman has occupied his thoughts and fantasies for some time. If Cam has anything to say about it, this trip will be the catalyst to making some of those fantasies come true. Once he recognizes that opportunity is upon him, he accepts that it is now or never. Or the first time, the two are here unattached and nothing will deter Cam from his sensual assault on Kristi’s senses. These two characters were a lot of fun to get to know. Cam and Kristi are easily likeable and I felt that their stories and actions were plausible. Both were convincing and in need of some happiness. I always enjoy the two main characters that secretly pine for one another and later discover that those feelings are mutually shared. I appreciate Kristi’s sense of loyalty to family when the relationship seems to prove to be too much for her sister. Equally endearing is Cam’s immediate protective instinct over Kristi. Slightly barbaric given that their relationship is in its infancy, but what woman doesn’t swoon over the alpha personality who stakes his claim?Also enjoyable were the secondary characters in the house. York has brought in an entertaining supporting cast of characters, each with their own wounds to lick. I was a bit surprised to discover that the two we found out the most information about are not the main characters of book two. But my hunch is that those two particular characters will self-induce their long road to an HEA and will likely be the last book in the series. But I digress.York has once again crafted an entertaining read packed full of crazy hot sex and relatable characters that you can’t help but want to find out more about. True to form, Ms. York has successfully intertwined her talent for snark within this cast of characters. Her stories continue to be sexy, witty, and engrossing. Do yourself a favor and experience the tales of this talented author. She is guaranteed to satisfy.(ARC eBook copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review.)

    For those of you who remember the ‘90s sitcom, Friends, REBOUND reminds me of what an "NC-17" rated version of Friends would have looked like. The first book in the five-book Tryst Island series contains an ending to the hero's and heroine's romantic relationship and can be read as a stand-alone book. Additionally, at only 84-pages long, it can easily be enjoyed as a quick, fun read in one sitting.The Tryst Island series is the story of a group of college friends living in the Pacific Northwest who, after graduation, share a vacation home on Trystacomseh Island, or Tryst Island for short. Of course, as with any group of new adult friends, in addition to the friendship aspect, there is your fair share of secret crushes that lead to steamy encounters and potential romantic relationships.The heroine in this book is Kristi Cross and the hero, Cameron Jackson. Both have had a secret crush on one another since college, and when both just happen to show up at the vacation home on the same weekend after breaking up with their respective significant others who cheated on them, sparks fly! But is this just a "rebound" thing, or can they turn into something more? Add in some complicating factors, like Kristi's sister, Bella, also having a crush on Cameron, and Holt, another college friend, having an interest in Kristi, and you have a recipe for a "hot" weekend in more ways than one!I enjoyed Sabrina York's writing. This novella is well written and conveys a good amount of steaminess while still telling a story. Additionally, as this is the first book in the series, there is a fair amount of text devoted to introducing some of the other characters who will, no doubt, be looking for their romantic pair in future Tryst Island books to come. Holt, in particular, sounds quite promising. He is a dominant looking for his submissive, and he appears convinced that he can talk the right woman into his lifestyle. Book 3, Smoking Holt, is Holt's and Bella's story, and I look forward to reading that one to find out if Holt can be successful in his quest.All in all, this was an easy, sexy read that, no doubt, will be enjoyable for lovers of erotic, contemporary new adult titles.Source: Review written by me and originally published at The Romance Reviews.

    They’d been alone together before. She had no idea why this time his fixed attention made visions of the two of them, entwined, race through her mind. It was probably the hint of mischief, that wisp of flirtation in his eye. But that was typical Cam. He flirted with everyone. And everyone knew it was just that. Flirting. No. This was something different. Rebound is the first story in the Tryst Island series by author Sabrina York. I was excited to finally have a chance to read this one since it’s been on my to be read list for quite a while! This series is sequential and all characters are tied together so I recommend reading this series in order for maximum enjoyment.Rebound was a quick, erotic novella length story told from alternating POVs of the two main characters, Kristi and Cameron. The story is a very sexy snapshot of what happens when two long-time friends come together for the weekend and finally have the chance to see what a simple kiss will lead to…and boy what it lead to...He slipped beneath the band and touched her again. Skin to skin. And fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck. She was dripping wet. Slick. Scalding. He scraped over her clit, circled it, rubbed. She stiffened. Saliva pooled in her mouth. He drank it in, relishing the taste of her mindless desire. For him. If he wasn’t mistaken-and he didn’t think he was-she’d come. Just then. To a tiny touch. Holy. Fuck.Insanity raged.Need raged….While there wasn’t a lot to work with due to the shorter length (97 pages), it was perfect just as it was. It was a great mix of fun, sweet, and sex. There was a little jealousy, a little mis-communication, and did I mention it was pretty sexy...yep, definitely more erotic in nature than just your standard little novella. Overall, I'm rounding this one up to a four star read. I recommend this when you need a quick shot of sexy, just want a fun read, or are short on time. I defiitely plan to continue with this series!Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

    Rebound (Tryst Island #1)Sabrina YorkThis story was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review. It is the first in a series of 5 (so far) stories about a group of friends that share a holiday home together.Kristi Cross has had a devastating day when she walks in on her lover screwing her waitress in the storage room at the coffee shop she owns. So off she goes to the cottage to get away for a few days. Cameron Jackson is there as well. He is also newly single. Kristi has had the hots for him forever but always thought that he was way out of her league. Fate is looking out for her today and the two of them get together to play a game of cards. He wants to put a bet on the table."I was thinking we could play for something.""Something?"A kiss , maybe?""We're just f- friends""Are you saying that you don't want to kiss me?""I - No! I just ....... We've always ....... It's probably....""I didnt' think that you found me attractive. That's all."" Are you crazy? You're stunning."And so it begins. The two of them discover that they are very well suited to one another. They have hot sex all over the place. In many different rooms and positions. The two of them have explosive chemistry and need which they eagerly explore.But, alas, all is not quite rosy in their little love nest yet. There will be some bumps in the road that need to be smoothed out. They will need to decide if they is just a rebound relationship or whether there is something else there that they need to explore for the long term.I loved this author's style of writing. It was very easy to read. The secondary characters are introduced in such a way that it leaves you eager to get the next part of the series to discover what everyone else's story is about. They story was a shrot quick read and I was able to finish it in one sitting. Sometime's this is a perfect way to sit down and escape for an hour at night. Great job 4/5.

    This was a fun, short by new to me author Sabrina York. When I initially read the blurb I was intrigued because I’m a sucker for unrequited lust/like/love then poof like magic everyone is in-love. This story I a good telling of that. Having just found her boyfriend sexing up her employee (while at work) Kristi Cross’s week can’t get any worse or can it? Getting out of town and away from her problems for the weekend, Kristi heads down to the house that she and her friends share. Of all people to be at the house, her college crush Cameron Jackson is there for his weekend getaway. There’s not going to be a lot of stress though because Kristi knows that she’s not Cam’s type until he suggests a game of Hearts and the prize is a kiss! Umm, seriously who can resist that? Kristi already knows she can’t resist Cam’s suggestion. Other than Kristi jumping from one man’s bed right into another, she was very likable; her sarcastic humor was something that I completely enjoyed. Yes, she’s curvy but she wasn’t too self-conscious of that, at least not any more than any other girl would be when they know the type of woman the guy they’re interested normally goes out with. But what I liked the best was Cam’s POV; it’s rear that I’ll read more of the guy’s angle than the girl’s -- refreshing and sexy, yeah those words totally describe what Cam was feeling and thinking. I adored these two as a couple and the lusting was pleasantly lush. For such a short story, York did a lot in conveying strong emotions not just sex sex sex, it was definitely enough for me to look forward to the next story. There are some secondary characters that I would love to know more about especially ‘doesn’t have a job playboy’ Lane and his ex-wife who’s also Kristi’s business partner. Happy Reading folks!Rating: B * Book provided by author for reviewPosted at www.redhotbooks.com

    Rating: 4 starsThis is a short one, novella, just over 80 pages. A group of college friends own a vacation house together on Tryst Island, which of course is the perfect setting for a series of books about the owners! This one is about Kristi and Cam. Kristi has crushed on Cam for years, but he didn't notice her, or so she thought. It turns out that Kristi and Cam are both at the house for the weekend, and both just broke up with significant others, making them single at the same time for the first time. And now they can explore if they want to be more than friends. It's a novella, so not a lot of plot really. It helps that they are already friends, so there is no meet and get to know phase needed here. We are introduced to a handful of other friends at the house during the weekend, and there is some minor conflict to keep it interesting (other romantic interests), but really this is a quick, light, fluffy romance to bring a smile to a face when you have little time to read. I loved it for what it was. I'll definitely look into more of this series and this author. My rating is 4 stars.

    I am going to give this novella a solid 3.5 stars. I have a really hard time giving out 4 & 5 stars for novellas.This was a really quick read but Ms. York managed to give a pretty good story in about 70 pages. Kristi and her college friends all share a house together on Tryst Island. After catching her boyfriend banging one of her waitresses, Kristi breaks up with him and heads out to the vacation house to get away. Cam is one of her college friends who also shares in the vacation house and she has had a crush on him for as long as she can remember but they have always both been in relationships. Turns out Cam has also just broken up with his latest super-model girlfriend and for over a year now has been having decidedly "unfriendly" thoughts about Kristi so he is thrilled that she broke up with her loser boyfriend. Since this is a novella the two of them get hot and heavy really quick and the sex is HAWT. The rest of the college crew also shows up for the weekend and it was great to meet them since they are all obviously going to have books of their own. I will definitely continue reading to see what happens with the rest of the crew.
