Hey, Nerdy Peeps! Today I am bringing you a review for the blog tour on Sun, Sea & Sex!
Sun, Sea & Sex
Escaping to live on a Caribbean island, Zeeta and her two best friends reflect on their turbulent lives, loves and the decisions that shaped them.
Growing up Zeeta always strove to be the perfect daughter and be everything her parents hoped. Unfortunately, she soon realized that she’d never be good enough, it’s her brother who holds their love. Thankfully, she can always turn to her lifelong friend Sheila —a boy-mad teenager whose love of the opposite sex will follow her into adulthood with a rollercoaster of consequences. Determined to make something of her life Zeeta continues to be a model student and earns a place at cookery college where good qualifications should pave the way to a career and security. But getting the job she wanted, proved impossible. However, a chance meeting on her train to work with Peggy —a vibrant and successful career woman— who offers Zeeta an exciting new job in London changes the course of her life forever.
Happily enjoying her new independence, and friendship with Peggy, Zeeta finally feels like life and luck are on her side. And so whilst at a work conference when she unexpectedly meets her childhood friend Martin Zeeta wastes no time throwing herself into a whirlwind romance. And when Martin proposes marriage she doesn’t hesitate but love never did run smoothly and all too soon Zeeta’s bliss leads to disaster and heartbreak. Reeling from events, on the rebound and emotionally unready, Zeeta quickly falls into a second marriage. But her second husband has a dark side one with a depraved sexual appetite. Trapped and afraid it is only with the help and support of her two best friends, Sheila and Peggy, that Zeeta will find the strength to finally emerge free and independent.
A story of life, love and friendship, Sun, Sea, and Sex by Greta Horwood is the perfect next read for fans of commercial women’s and romantic fiction.
My Review of Sun, Sea, & Sex
To be completely honest, I am kind of at a loss for words with this book. Now, don’t get me wrong I loved every word and had a hard time putting the book down. It just felt like the book was all over the place at times and it was easy to get lost and confused. In every chapter, it was like she had a different relationship and honestly, it was hard to keep up. Now, the steamy scenes in this book were everything they needed to be and more.
The only relationship I could keep up with was her marriage to Martin. That was the only one that made any sense through the whole book. But I kept reading because I wanted to see how Zeeta turned out in the end. I hated when she ended up with Ben, he clearly had no feelings for her what so ever, and was doing everything to take advantage of her. You’ll have to find out how that relationship ended up when you read the book.
Now, if you like lots of different relationships, a pretty strong and independent woman, who has lots of steamy sex, then this book will be perfect for you!
