Publisher's Summary

The launch of a brand new trilogy from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Roxanne St. Claire set on the sun-washed beaches of Barefoot Bay!

Best-selling author 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: a lifelong partner and true love.

Enter Mandy Mitchell - the maid at his thousand-dollar-a-night resort. The minute they meet, Mandy knows he's exactly the kind of trouble she should avoid - but Zeke does have one thing Mandy needs to gain the independence she craves. Will he give it to her? One look at Mandy, and Zeke turns his relentless ability to get what he wants into a full-on seduction and he's ready to give her anything. But can Mandy face down the secrets of her past to find a fairy-tale future with Zeke?

Sweet Vanilla unrealistic

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

ah 50/50. cute but bland. kinda out there and characters lacked substance

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

predictable

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Add a little more interesting dialog. It was just there....

Could you see Secrets on the Sand being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

nope

Any additional comments?

Secrets On the Sand by Roxanne St. Claire

Great story! My first from Ms. St. Claire's Barefoot Bay series. Definitely hooked and looking forward to reading more books in the series. Loved the Geek wins the Princess theme, but loved the Geek turns Stud and shows them all even more, lol.

Secrets...

This book had everything except hot sex! There was the girl to hate, the guy to fall for and a heroine with a complicated story and insurmountable odds..,

Loved the narration.

Worth it!

Good story

Good story, but predictable and not likely to happen the way things did. I still enjoyed the book, but it could’ve been better.

Secrets on the Sand by Roxanne St.Claire (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Kaleo Griffiths
The Billionaires of Barefoot Bay #1

♥ ♥ ♥ ½ This was a super quick read as it was a novella. The story was a feel good romance and I loved the plot of the hero getting his high school crush in the end. Mandy had a couple flighty moments which didn't make sense to me, and I sorta wished she’d secretly crushed on Zeke back in the day - but that's just me.

Zeke knew what he wanted and had the money to use that to his advantage. He seemed like a caring man and I felt he truly wanted Mandy, I just wish I had felt a bit more chemistry between them.

This is the first time I have heard a Kaleo Griffith's narration and while I like the tone of his voice and his clarity, I found he was quite breathy as if every conversation whispered - though perhaps that was the story as well.. it was very “hush hush” in parts. I would listen to another of his narrations.

Cute Sweet Read

This was a cute, sweet, and easy listen rendition of the nerdy guy in high school becoming super rich and good looking and him capturing the super the heart of his high school crush. It was a nice listen.

Better luck next time.

The narrator was a good, steady, and easy to listen to voice. I prefer a narrator with vocal-emotion capabilities, but the voice is good.
The story didn't do anything for me though. I have tried twice to listen to this title and I can't get beyond the first dinner-date. There's so much telling and not enough showing.

fun listen, entertaining, good narratot

This book was a nice, light, listen about two people who get together as adults. Male lead was a geek in HS, female lead was the pretty girl he had a crush on. As adults, he is successful and she is down on her luck.

Good Book

A typical and well written Roxanne St Claire novel and well narrated by Kaleo Giffith. The forerunner of another series for the Barefoot Bay stories.

Spoilt

I read this in e book format and enjoyed it so much I decided to buy it with the other two in the series in audio. The narrator spoilt it for me, I don't know why but a woman can make a believable mans voice not one voice but several but a man? This narrator being male all his women's voices sounded the same with a slight whiny tone and after four chapters I couldn't take anymore and went right to the end. So I know that I am going to send this and the other two books in the series back as they are all read by the same person. A good narrator can make or break a good book this series is broken for me, I only hope that Roxanne St Claire chooses someone totally different to read her next Barefoot series.
