SYNOPSIS: Lennon Day is a problem. She was supposed to be a one-time diversion, a friend that temporarily soothed the desires raging under the surface. Now we can’t keep our hands to ourselves, playing a game that we’re both going to lose. I thought I liked my life how it was. I wasn’t expecting for anything to change, for my priorities to ebb and flow like a wave. And now I’m worried everything is going to crash down around me. And that she might be the one who gets lost in the storm.
Lucas Pearson is a problem. He’s handsome, charming, my childhood crush… and unfortunately, not completely available. When I moved back to Hermosa Beach to work for my family’s foundation, I wasn’t expecting anything to happen. But it did. Now, we collide like magnets, finding each other in the night to satisfy the urges we can’t seem to escape. It’s supposed to be casual. No strings. Emotion-free. And definitely a secret. So what’s the problem? I’ll be anything for him… even if I lose myself in the process.
Welcome to Hermosa Beach
Be Your Anything is the second book in the Hermosa Beach Series.
It is highly recommended that all books in the series be read in order as they contain significant spoilers and interwoven storylines.
The first book in the series is called Promise Me Nothing
REVIEW: Wow, what a freaking journey these characters went on together. Seeing Lucas as Hannah‘s brother in the first book, Promise Me Nothing, gave me a sense that he was a decent guy, but maybe needed to kind of figure out his own shit. We also get to see Lennon in the first book as well, and I didn’t really know what to think of her, but I didn’t really like her. There were definitely some super spicy scenes in this one! Getting those scenes paired with the flashbacks to their friendship when they were younger really made me invested in them as a couple, yet the open relationship Luke was in made me have very mixed feelings. Something that I find really moving about Jillian Liota’s books is that the characters really go through a transformation and come to realizations about things in a way that I wish most people would. It’s not that they don’t make mistakes, they do and they really stop to think about their actions and how they impact other people around them. The journeys, plus the romance and steamy scenes, is one of the reasons I think Jillian Liota is one of the most underrated romance authors I’ve read in a long time. This book plot is not a usual one I would pick up, but because of the author I did. And because of the author I absolutely loved it and enjoyed the depth of the characters, their growth, and that ending! It was wonderful and set us up for the next book in a way that I am going to start book 3 right now. Even though it’s late at night, and I probably shouldn’t do that. Obviously, I recommend you read this series!!
