And everyone knows it, including Olivia. As irritated as he might be, protecting Olivia is what Danny does.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the 3rd book in the Kisses In The Sand series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers and enjoy, please read the series in order.
Olivia & Danny have been best friends since way back. They both avoid getting messy by crossing over that line. Now she needs him more than ever.
Danny knows his future is bleak. He wants to spend it alone, as to not hurt anyone else. Unfortunately, those around him who care, wants him to be more present in his and their lives. Can he get past the issues and move on with the girl?
I am truly moved by sincere friendship. I loved this story for many reasons. This is a great series. The characters were just complex enough to be interesting. The sexy times were hot enough to bounce sparks over the room.

A temporary agreement neither could keep… Brainy, organized Sophie Birch is no beach bunny. In fact, she’s totally out of her element among the sun-bronzed crowd at a film festival in beautiful White Strand Cove. When a surf lesson introduces her to Zane Hollander, suddenly she's up close and personal with the world's sexiest surf star. But what can a great-looking, experienced athlete possibly see in a klutzy out-of-towner who’s never set foot in the ocean? Zane Hollander's playboy reputation has never been a problem…until recently. Now his management team wants him on his best behavior to entice a meaningful new sponsor. Sophie Birch is the perfect girl to help reform his image. She's genuine and respected—and their relationship is purely fictional. But the more Sophie blooms under the beachy sun, the more Zane knows he'll just break her heart. Because nothing's more important to Zane than following the tide.
The one guy she shouldn't want... Honor Mitchell has lived with guilt and regret for a long time, so when she promises to do the things on her dying best friend's wish list, she's determined to follow through and do something right for a change. But when she's thrown together for wedding duties with the one man who complicates her vow--just by looking at him--she has to put her faith in Bryce Bishop's pledge to help her, no strings attached. Bryce's near one-night stand with his ex-girlfriend's best friend a few months ago might have been a mistake, but helping the beautiful, free-spirited Honor with her promise isn't. His trust in women is shot, but he can't help but play his best man card to his advantage and help Honor tick off the items on his ex's list, even if it puts him in a no-win situation. Because his assistance might get Honor what she wants, but suddenly being the do-good guy puts his plans--and heart--in serious jeopardy.
