TROPES: Childhood Best Friends to Lovers Romance. Romantic Comedy
Claire Raye has made me swoon! I knew this was going to be an amazing series based on the prequel novella (which you can read if you subscribe to the authors newsletter- see above) I just didn't realize HOW MUCH I was going to love it! I feel like I am friends with Lauren and Jack based on how well the author portrayed them and reading their story felt comforting. I also love being transported into the Vineyard with the characters- a place I have yet to visit but would like to in the future (more now especially after reading this book).
Between the chemistry, the small jabs from Jack to Lauren (if they pick on your they must LIKE you) and the flashbacks to childhood this book is amazing through and through. Everything flowed beautifully and I felt like the entire book was well rounded. There are a few characters thrown in that will make you want to pull out your hair (maybe even scream) but that adds to the realistic quality of the story because not everyone can be too perfect! That happens and it all seems fake.
Anyways, I am truly loving this series and I have a feeling it's going to be a hit among romance fans. I strongly recommend giving it a try if you are looking for a lighthearted read with an awesome set of characters and love that blossoms off the pages!
About 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), they decided to take the plunge and see if they could write a book together and ta dah… The Rockport Beach Novels were 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. While Claire Raye’s resting bitch face might be strong, she always makes sure her alpha males are stranger!
Writing The Rockport Beach Novels has been so much fun, even if Book 2 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 her husbands have a cheeky side that gets plenty of airtime in her books. From their smart mouths to their witty one-liners, there’s plenty of material to use for all those alpha males she loves to write about.
While Claire Raye isn’t sure she’ll ever reveal who she really is – there’s just something about your co-workers knowing you write erotic love scenes that makes having a pen name that much easier – she’s definitely going to keep on writing. Plans are already underway for the next series, which is sure to feature plenty of sass, steam and humor. And of course, a happily-ever-after!
