Genre: Contemporary Romance
Andrew & Jiya have been best friends and neighbors almost their entire lives. Their attraction and connection to one another has always been brewing just beneath the surface, never fully acted upon by either of them. But things begin to shift the at a family member’s wedding, and even though Andrew knows he should keep Jiya at arm’s length, he just can’t do it anymore. Now that he had a taste, that won’t ever be enough. Jiya’s parents’ expectations of her future and Andrew’s fear that his past will come back to haunt him threaten to keep the two apart. But when you’ve loved someone as long as Andrew’s loved Jiya, nothing will stand in your way.
This is the third book in the Beach Kingdom series and while each book can be read as a stand alone, I want-nope, NEED to go back and read the other two because holy WOW Tessa packs the steam 🥵🔥 I barely got to know the other two Prince Brothers and I already love them and their significant others and I can’t wait to read their stories from the beginning.
Now back to Andrew & Jiya. Even though the circumstances and obstacles surrounding them aren’t easy, their love and connection sure is. It’s clear from the very beginning that these two are made for each other and you just want to root for them to shut up and bone from about page two. Jiya and her family are Indian and I love the extra depth a strong, diverse female heroine brings to this book. And can we talk about Andrew for a second? His way of being protective but not macho and gross brings all the swoons, but pretty early on, Tessa described him as a “sun-kissed Richard Madden” and I was like SAY👏🏻NO👏🏻MORE👏🏻 🔥😍 ANYWAY, as with all the other Tessa Bailey books I’ve read, I highly recommend this one, especially if you’re big fan of extra steamy romances!
Thanks so much to the author for the e-arc in exchange for my review. Sink or Swim is out now, available on Amazon and KU!
