Sun, Sea and Sangria by Victoria Cooke

Sun, Sea and Sangria


Kat swore off dating many years ago after her marriage ended in a catastrophic mess. Having moved to the Canary Islands for a fresh start, she has never had much time for romance, channeling all her energy into managing all-male dance troupe – the Heavenly Hunks.

With golden beaches, sparkling blue water, and relaxing after work with a glass of sangria – or three – for Kat, it’s summer all year round. But despite life being postcard-perfect, Kat can’t help but wonder if she is missing out on the most important thing of all… love.

The dancers are all well-known for their flirtatious antics and aren’t looking for anything serious… except Jay. Sitting by the pool, watching the sun reflecting in the water, Kat feels like she can tell him anything.

Handsome, caring, and a good listener, he ignites a fire in Kat’s heart that scares her witless. But her relationship with Jay should stay strictly professional… right? There is absolutely no way that she can be his boss and his date.

As the temperature rises, will Kat be able to take the plunge, let go of her past and find romance in paradise?


Who wouldn’t want to read a book about a woman managing a group of hot male exotic dancers on a tropical island? 

Whew! Ms. Cooke knows how to reel you in from the start by throwing you into the wild fray of Kat prepping her “boys” to get ready for their next hot and sexy gig. Let me just say I wish I were there in the flesh. 😉

I really enjoyed the romance between Kat and Jay, the newest and oldest member of the Heavenly Hunks. Though Kat doesn’t like to mix business with pleasure, they slowly become friends who open up about the pasts they would rather forget, but which still affect them when it comes to relationships. Kat is a strong, savvy manager who cares greatly for the guys and when she needs to make a decision that is best for all of them, she unselfishly sacrifices her happiness for theirs. It takes her some time to come to terms with her insecurities, but she finally makes the right decision.  And Jay is someone every woman needs. He is compassionate, considerate, and oh, so hot. His past is heartbreaking and I would have snatched it up in a minute.  As for Marcus, Sammy, Paul, Ant, and Hugh…what can I say?  Yummy!!!

I relished this fun and romantic story full of hot men and a beautiful setting.  I recommend you kick back, grab a Sangria, and immerse yourself in a great summer read! Also, pick up Ms. Cooke’s A Summer to Remember for another fun summer read.

Thank you to Ms. Cooke for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
