BONFIRE BEACH

BONFIRE BEACH                                     LILY EVERETT
Posted:  Jan. 29, 2014

Bonfire Beach by Lily Everett  They’re single, they’re rich, and now these billionaire bachelors are heading to Sanctuary Island in a new e-original novella series from Lily Everett! Fall in love with the island’s latest catch.

Leo, Zane, and Cooper made a pact to stay bachelors and enjoy the single life forever, and when they receive an invitation to their friend Miles’ wedding, they head down to Sanctuary Island determined to talk some sense into the errant groom before he makes a life-changing mistake. But Miles knows his own mind, and he makes a vow of his own: before he walks down the aisle, he’ll have Leo, Zane, and Cooper changing their tune about matrimony. Because Miles knows, better than anyone, that all it takes is a little Sanctuary Island magic to turn romantic cynics into true believers.

Zane Bishop has always been the life of the party, the guy who makes sure everyone is having a blast, and he turned his experiences as a college DJ into a multi-billion-dollar entertainment company. He can’t wait to take control of the bachelor party, but Zane’s plans for an all-night rager come up against wedding consultant Felicity Carlson’s ideas about getting Miles to the church on time and sober.  While Zane works overtime tempting Felicity into having fun, she discovers that there’s more to the party boy than meets the eye—but can a woman who makes her living planning other people’s perfect romances ever find true love of her own?

MY REVIEW:


     Lily Everett did a nice job of bringing a little romance to Sanctuary Island once again.  It looks like Miles knew what he was talking about when he made that bet with Leo, Zane and Cooper.  Oh, wait I forgot there’s a little “something-something” that goes on up at the alter with one of the bridesmaids and Cooper so it’s not totally in the bag so can’t wait to read about that tidbit.

     Anyway, this little short was told in 76 pages and it was cute.  It was just enough family background to see conflict, there is the current conflict of meet and condition of working the wedding together.  You see Felicity Carlson owns her own wedding consulting company of one (her) in Manhattan.  Zane Bishop is a self-made billionaire in “Whatever Entertainments” in New York.  Which his owner and CEO.  He was asked by Miles, his friend, to help and she was hired by Greta.  Neither told them they would be working together.

     They are both very closed off people who never share personal details.  Yet, each one can see that they are closed off.  Zane, sees that she does this by all her control and structure she needs with regards to the wedding and reception.  Felicity, can see it in Zane always wanting to be having fun, free, exciting new things not boring, yet, his eyes tell a different story. 

     After a few days of trying to win each other over he hears a talk Felicity and Greta have about her parents and her mom’s health. He gets it but he knows there’s more but for the first time ever he wants to find out what that is.  So, a relationship starts (sexual) maybe more… During this talk Greta and Felicity have pay attention to what she says her dad answer was about her mom’s illness.  For me it was a tear jerker. 

     Then Zane being a guy (sorry guys) says something crazy because he is having feelings and boom…Ha-ha you will have to read to see how they will resolve it.  It’s nice, very sweet and not what I was thinking would happen.  Is believable maybe not but its fiction and a romance so don’t wake me up yet…
