Sometimes, even the best-laid plans can unravel.
It's spring break, and Tamara Winters would rather stay on campus and read romance novels than flaunt her size-fourteen body on a beach. But her best friend, Rony, has other ideas. Against her wishes, Tamara is whisked away to picturesque Maverick Bay, where she's wrangled into waiting tables with Rony at the Shore Shack for its busy week leading to Maverick's Surf Invitational. There she meets fellow schoolmate Xavier Solomon, the Invitational's organizer and campus womanizer by reputation. From the moment Tamara sees him emerging from the waves like a hero in of one of her romance novels, all she wants to do is run away from the feelings he inspires in her.
Little does she know Xavier has been watching her for weeks now. In fact, after failed attempts at asking her out on campus, he's concocted a crazy plan: fabricating romantic situations straight out of her favorite books. Xavier quickly realizes that if Tamara gets a whiff of his designs, he might as well spell CREEPER across his forehead. Yet as they grow closer, he's convinced it's a risk worth taking. What he hasn't planned on, of course, is his drug-addicted, alcoholic stepbrother, who decides to join the fun and put a wrench in Xavier’s scheme.
Spring break is proving hotter than Tamara expected. Will her romance novels be able to compete?

OMG CAN YOU SAY BEACH READ! Kate Has done it again with another story to blow you away. I am all about the summer loves and summer beach reads. I love to go to the beach and read and watch people flirt like crazy! It is so funny how the girls try to get the guys attention and the guys try and get the girls attention. I have been to some WILD beach parties recently and I must be getting old because some of the things that were worn or lack of and some of the things that were displayed but holy freaking PDA!
SO here we have a girl after my own heart Tamara who loves to read. She rather spend her time going to classes and reading than doing anything else. So spring break is here and her best friend Ronni has something up her sleeve for her and Tamara. Instead of beach hopping they are going to wait tables and go to a surfers invitational. What Tamara does not know is that Xavier the schools man whore or so it is said about him is the organizer of this event. And olalala when Tamara sees him coming out of the water in all his luscious gorgeousness she wants to run for the beach because what she is feeling is just not right. He has a bad reputation on campus and she wants to stay as far away as possible but it is looking like that is not possible because Xavier wants her.
Xavier has a bad rep but he is trying to put that behind him because he likes Tamara. He wants to get her and keep her but one problem. She does not notice him or his attempts at getting her attention at school. So he devises a plan with her friend to get her attention and just as they are starting to get close Xaviers brother comes into the picture and tries to ruin it all for him. Will Xavier get Tamara? Will Tamara get her head out of the books? This is a summer MUST READ!
