Bonfire Beach (The Billionaire Bachelors #2) by Lily Everett – Review

Bonfire Beach

They’re single, they’re rich, and now these billionaire bachelors are heading to Sanctuary Island in a new e-original novella series from Lily Everett! Fall in love with the island’s latest catch.

Leo, Zane, and Cooper made a pact to stay bachelors and enjoy the single life forever, and when they receive an invitation to their friend Miles’ wedding, they head down to Sanctuary Island determined to talk some sense into the errant groom before he makes a life-changing mistake. But Miles knows his own mind, and he makes a vow of his own: before he walks down the aisle, he’ll have Leo, Zane, and Cooper changing their tune about matrimony. Because Miles knows, better than anyone, that all it takes is a little Sanctuary Island magic to turn romantic cynics into true believers.

Zane Bishop has always been the life of the party, the guy who makes sure everyone is having a blast, and he turned his experiences as a college DJ into a multi-billion-dollar entertainment company. He can’t wait to take control of the bachelor party, but Zane’s plans for an all-night rager come up against wedding consultant Felicity Carlson’s ideas about getting Miles to the church on time and sober. While Zane works overtime tempting Felicity into having fun, she discovers that there’s more to the party boy than meets the eye—but can a woman who makes her living planning other people’s perfect romances ever find true love of her own?

MY REVIEW:

BONFIRE BEACH by Lily Everett is the second book in her Billionaire Bachelors series. The book is set on Sanctuary Island where billionaire CEO Miles Harrington is about to be married and has asked his three best friends to spend the month before the wedding on the island to help him plan and prepare for the wedding. This is a stand-alone novella you can enjoy without reading the first book, but it’s a sweet, romantic series and I recommend you indulge.

Bonfire Beach features Miles’ gorgeous friend, Zane Bishop, the CEO of Whatever Entertainment and owner of three of the hottest five nightclubs in Manhattan who Miles and his fiancée Greta have asked to help plan the reception. Everyone knows Zane is all about the fun and living life to the fullest. His parties are legendary and he is determined to make Miles and Greta’s day the most spectacular party he’s ever thrown.

Miles and Greta have also hired the beautiful and successful wedding planner Felicity Carlson. Greta is all about organization, binders filled with notes, and romance. In other words, responsible and very uptight. Zane and Felicity spark the moment they meet. There is a definite physical attraction, but they don’t agree on any of the wedding details (Felicity wants warm and romantic candlelight – Zane wants disco balls) including where the reception itself will be held or the type of music to be played. Each are certain they know what will make Miles and Greta happy.

They appear to be opposites in every way, but as they spend time together they begin to share the stories of their lives and realize they have something very important in common. Both have lived through tragedy at a very young age and that pain has affected the choices they make as adults. Zane to live each day as it comes as if it were his last without making any commitments to the future. Felicity to be stable and responsible in all things, and to avoid risk in order to have a secure future. This bonding leads to an passionate affair, but neither are quite prepared for the emotional ties they develop for one another. Zane who determinedly lives his life on the surface never diving into emotional territory about anything is lost with what he feels for Felicity. Felicity who needs security in her life is panicked at the thought of trusting her vulnerable heart to a man who is well-known as nothing but a playboy.

Bonfire Beach is a fun, romantic story of opposites attracting, sparking, battling, and falling in love! I enjoyed reading Zane and Felicity’s story and rate it with 3.5 stars.
