“FOOL OF MAIN BEACH is definitely a feel-good, heart warming romance.”
~ Under the Covers

This book definitely follows in the fun stories I’ve come to expect from Ms. Lain.  Merle Justice is a young actor trying to get recognition in Hollywood, which is hard since he plays a teenage vampire on a hit show.  Actors in those roles aren’t seen seriously and he’s struggling to reconcile those two sides of his career.

The complications between Tom and Merle were more than just being from different sides of the social spectrum.  Tom is a very simple kinda guy.  He may not be the brightest guy around, but there’s an innocence about him that is ultimately what is most appealing about him.  Draws you in because you can’t help but want to be around him.  Merle can’t stay away but knows that Hollywood can be ruthless and he may be bringing Tom into situations that are more than he is prepared to deal with.

It was refreshing to see a character like Tom because he’s not the typical romance hero.  He is the kind of hero you want to keep wrapped up in protective bubble wrap so the world can’t hurt him, but at the same time he’s big enough to protect you from it.  He’s sensitive but when he gives his heart, he does so completely.  And boy, does he love sex. 😉  He was my favorite thing about this story for sure.

I think Merle and Tom where really adorable together.  They had great chemistry and I found them so charming.  FOOL OF MAIN BEACH is definitely a feel-good, heart warming romance.  I think the conflict could’ve been a little better but the story still made sense the way the author presented it and it was enjoyable to read.

About Tara Lain

Tara Lain never met a beautiful boy she didn’t love – at least on paper. A writer of erotic romance, mostly ménage and male/male, Tara loves all her characters, but especially her handsome heroes. A lifelong writer of serious non-fiction, Tara only fell in love with EROM in 2009 and, through perseverance and lots of workshops, had the first novel she ever wrote accepted for publication in 2010. She’s now on book fourteen and counting. After an exotic life of travel all over the world and work in television, education and advertising, Tara settled in Southern California with her soul-mate husband and opened her own small marketing business. She paints, collages, and started practicing yoga “way before it was fashionable”. Passionate about diversity, justice, inclusion and new ideas she says on her tombstone it will read, “Yes”.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
