Release Blitz Review + Giveaway- SEE YOU AT SUNSET by V.K. Sykes

 About SEE YOU AT SUNSET (Seashell Bay 3)
All Holly Tyler wants is a fantastic career, a not-too-committed relationship, and a city where there are no painful memories. Instead, she's called back to her hometown of Seashell Bay to help with her family's struggling general store. It's a town where everyone knows everyone, and where one man could sink Holly's careful plans.

Deputy Sheriff Micah Lancaster has wanted Holly for as long as he can remember. He knows she has a life on the mainland-and a boyfriend-and that there's no real future with her. But now Holly is back and the attraction still flickers between them, a promise of something more. Their desire is stronger than any undertow . . . and once it pulls them under, it won't let go.

This is one of those times where a book didn't make it or break it for me. It just was. Upon starting the book, I realized that I couldn't connect to any of the characters. I thought it was just because I was only in a few chapters, but the more I read, the more I realized that maybe this wasn't going to be the book for me. I trudged on and finished it though. And while by the end of the book, I didn't hate it, I also didn't love it either.

Holly and Micah are friends; friends that may or may not want more. The thing is, are either one of them willing to risk said friendship for a fling? Would it, could it ever be more than just a fling? When Holly is called back to home after her aunt ends up in the hospital due to a panic attack, it's inevitable that she'll run into Micah. Considering he's the sheriff and all. It's been awhile since she's been back and she comes with a past a wee bit tragic. 

Holly's husband died four years prior on a mission gone wrong. So it makes sense that she's skeptical when it comes to love and not wanting to be committed to anyone. Add her ever growing feelings to the hottie sheriff and a series of burglaries around town, and you got yourself a book of entertainment. Why then could I not get into it, you ask? 

I think I was bored for the most part. There were times when I felt the story drag and the it would pick up and I would be interested enough to want to keep reading. Would I recommend this? Absolutely. In the end, it was entertaining and had some swoony moments. The plot was interesting as well. If you love a sweet romance, this will be perfect for you.

About Summer at the Shore (Seashell Bay 2)
Morgan Merrifield sacrificed her teaching career to try to save her family's bed-and-breakfast and care for her younger sister. She can't let herself get distracted by Ryan Butler. After all, the rugged ex-Special Forces soldier is only in Seashell Bay for the summer. But her longtime crush soon flares into real desire-and with one irresistible kiss, she's swept away.

Ryan values his freedom. As much as he wants Morgan, he's not ready to settle down with anyone, much less in sleepy Seashell Bay. But his code of honor doesn't allow him to leave a woman in distress-and she's in desperate need of help to fix the inn. It only takes one day working under the same roof and Ryan is already hoping for a lifetime of hot summer nights . . .

About MEET ME AT THE BEACH (Seashell Bay 1)
When Lily Doyle spots her high school crush Aiden Flynn on the inbound ferry, she knows trouble is about to dock in Seashell Bay. And not just because he's more handsome than ever. If Aiden's in town, the rumors must be true about his family's plan to sell their coastal land to the highest bidder. But Lily will do whatever it takes to convince the hottest guy on the beach to protect their idyllic island home.

Gorgeous Lily Doyle was the only thing Aiden missed after he escaped from his hometown to play pro baseball. Now all Aiden wants is to wrap up the business deal and get back to his life, not relive a past that still haunts him. But as memories rush in about the night of passion he and Lily shared long ago, everything else washes right out to sea-everything except the desire that still burns between them.
