Review Between Us by Jen McLaughlin

Between Us
by Jen McLaughlin
New Adult Contemporary Romance
One of the “Sex on the Beach” Novellas

Between Us is a New Adult novella and is part of the Sex on the Beach Series which includes two other books written by authors Jennifer Probst  and Jenna Bennett.
I’m just a girl…

I’m a famous country star who’s spent her life cultivating a good girl persona to avoid bad press, but I’ve reached my limit. I’m going away for spring break with my two best friends from college, and we’ve vowed to spend the vacation seeking out fun in the sun—along with some hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only thing I needed was the perfect guy, and then I met Austin Murphy. He might be totally wrong for me, but the tattooed bad boy is hard to resist. When I’m in his arms, everything just feels right.

And I’m just a guy…

I’m just a bartender who lives in Key West, stuck in an endless cycle of boredom. But then Mackenzie Forbes, America’s Sweetheart herself, comes up to me and looks at me with those bright green eyes…and everything changes. She acts like she’s just a normal girl and I’m just a normal guy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My past isn’t pretty, you know. I did what I had to do to survive, and she’d run if she learned the truth about my darkness. But with her, I’m finally realizing what it’s like to be alive. To laugh, live, and be happy.

All good things must come to an end...

*~*My Review*~*
This is the second book in the Sex on the Beach series I've read.  I loved Mackenzie and Austin and I am so so glad I got to read their story!  It starts with Mac seeing this guy from across the bar in Key West during spring break. 
 I enjoyed seeing how a person so in the spotlight, who has a hard time trusting, go on spring break with her friends.  It was interesting to see how she handled it and then you add in Austin a super sexy bad boy and well the story went hot and heavy. I was nervous for Mac, then excited, then annoyed on her behalf.  I think my heart broke then healed with hope, right along with each character.  Austin was intense, yet real when he talked and I liked that very much! It was such a sweet story and I was sucked in, I had to stop reading to go to work.
I think the entire idea is wonderful, how three friends set off to find their guys and then all the little stories that tie in with it.  I am super excited to read Cassie's story, and overall I would give this book 5 stars.  If you have never been on spring break, this book (and series) will transport you there, you will feel the sun on your face!
