“A sizzling combination of heat and heart.” Barbara Freethy, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
He’s sworn to go a summer without women. She’s given up on men. What could possibly go wrong?
Bachelor-about-town Jay Buchanan doesn’t want a woman in his life, but a guy’s gotta eat so he puts out feelers for a private chef. If the best applicant’s female, so what? More needs to come out of his Billionaire’s Beach kitchen in Malibu than peanut butter and beer, and he’s in no mood for romance anyway.
Long ago Nikki Carmichael learned to put up her guard when it comes to guys, and her new client, Jay Buchanan, is the manliest man she’s ever met. She figures ignoring his magnetism will turn him away…but instead it backfires, and Jay is only further intrigued by the woman who refuses to fall at his feet.
They flirt, they fight, they ultimately share a bed and then their deepest secrets…but can these two trust that what seems like a summer fling is truly the love of a lifetime?
USA Today bestselling author Christie Ridgway serves up six sexy, sun-drenched romances with a decided emotional kick in the Billionaire’s Beach series. Enjoy them all!
Take Me Tender (Book 1)
Take Me Forever (Book 2)
Take Me Home (Book 3)

A different feel
I almost didn't read this to the end. The beginning just didn't do it for me but as I continued reading I really enjoyed the banter and humor. The side stories were interesting and gave the main story periodic breaks. It was sweet and slightly different.
Nikki and Jay
Loved the story a lot. It was sweet in spots and carefree in context. Well written, the story had a good flow to it. I can’t wait to read the next. I hope in the books to follow there is a story for Shanna and Jorge. Thank you, Chanda
