Review: Beach Balls (Balls to the Wall #3) by Tara Lain

Adam James is so far in the closet he could find Narnia. But coming out would threaten all he’s built as the lead attorney for WMA Development, and the million dollars he can get when he finishes pushing a big land remediation project through the City Council. Then on an early morning scuba dive, Adam meets a tall, lean rebreather diver named Sky who makes him want to live a different life. But Adam’s dreams are shattered when he walks into the council meeting and finds the fire-breathing environmentalist who’s screwing up his chances of winning is none other than that same beautiful man. Sky Sea Mickeljohn doesn’t compromise, so how could he find himself lusting after a damned developer? And what happens when somebody open’s Adam’s closet door? These two better start telling the truth if they’re ever going to find world peace.

Beach Balls was certainly my favorite of the Balls to the Wall books. There was just something about Sky that made him so easily likable. It’s also not every day where you get to read a couple that meets while fighting over an octopus. That right there makes for a reason to grab this book.

Adam and Sky have an instant attraction that neither put up a fight about. If anything they both run blindly into a hot fling. They’re compatible and both want the same things sexually. That is enough for them to continue seeing each other after their hook up. The problems arise when their lives collide in a place where they least expect it. That collision is something that they can’t move past unless one of them budges on his place within the issue.

While some of the events were slightly predictable I still found myself enjoying the story. Adam and Sky were enjoyable characters. The sex scenes are really hot. The pacing was great. This is a novella and often they feel rushed to me. This one turned out to be a well-paced erotic romance.
