Zeke Nicholas has turned his mathematical genius skills into a mountain of money. But Zeke sits on that mountain all alone, longing for the one thing money cannot buy: the true love of a lifelong partner. Zeke grew up near Barefoot Bay and is staying at the resort for a week while he’s in town for a family event. Enter Mandy Mitchell...the maid. Except to Zeke, Mandy is much more than that—she was the object of his every teenage fantasy back in the days when she was known as “Mandy the Magnificent” and he had the unflattering high school nickname of “Ezekiel the Geekiel.”
Zeke is no longer a geek—he’s gorgeous. And Mandy doesn’t feel so magnificent since her marriage fell apart and left her up to her eyeballs in debt and despair. One look at Zeke, and she knows he’s exactly the kind of trouble she should avoid. One look at Mandy, and Zeke turns his relentless ability to get what he wants into a full-on seduction. But can Mandy face down the secrets of her past to find a fairy-tale future with Zeke?
I LOVED Secrets on the Sand, the first book in Roxanne St. Claire’s The Billionaires of Barefoot Bay Series. Meet Ezekiel (Zeke) Nicholas billionaire extraordinaire and Mindy Mitchell who is working as a maid in order to pay off debts incurred from her failed marriage.
Mindy identifies herself as Amanda Lockhart, but eventually, Zeke asks her if she is actually Mandy Mitchell. Zeke introduces himself, but Mindy doesn’t remember him. When Zeke tells her his full name the first words out of her mouth are “Ezekiel the Geekiel”. Zeke can't believe it's her. Then an innocent scene is taken the wrong way and she pays for it.
What once was imaginary becomes reality. Reading this book had me laughing at some of the lines Mandy said to Zeke. For example, “I have to think about it. I have to sleep on you, I mean, on it.”. The heat between these two is scorching. Zeke is so sweet, kind, and romantic. He goes to some great lengths to prove himself to Mandy.
The name of this book is perfect. You will love Secrets on the Sand as much as I did. Roxanne St. Claire has a winner trilogy that has just begun, so hang on for the ride and enjoy. I'm so looking forward to reading Seduction on the Sand.
