REVIEW: “Life’s a Beach” by Poppy Dennison



Welcome to Coconut Cove where you’ll always find oiled beach bodies, palm trees, tropical drinks, and plenty of drama!

Coconut Cove is the hottest new sensation to sweep the nation — a gay teen drama filled to the brim with hot stars and even hotter action. It’s catching the public’s attention and winning their hearts. But all the drama, heartache, and life lessons aren’t just for the characters on the screen. The fledgling actors behind the scenes have more than their fair share of love and catastrophes. They may only play teens on TV but when it comes to romance, these twenty-somethings still have lessons to learn.

From the scheming ex determined to cash in on a rising star, to the hunky high school crush resurrected from ancient history—from the nice guy with a naughty past, to the snarky diva with attitude—there’s plenty of scandalous hidden affairs and seriously sexy demons hiding in just about everyone’s closet on Coconut Cove.

You just have to be ready to drink it in. Bottoms up … or should we say off?


Hot damn!

*packs bag and heads to da beach*

Coconut Cove here I come.

Okay okay, Coconut Cove doesn’t actually exist, but I still wanna go. The backdrop for the latest and greatest TV series takes place in Key West. And if you’ve ever played on the island, you can agree it’s hot in more ways than one.

Flynn is sinking in LA. His current show is not going so well. His failed relationship with his roommate/co-star is suffocating him and when an opportunity to snag a gig out of town pops up, he’s on it. Luck is on his side, he scores the spot, and he’s hopping on a jet plane to the southernmost point in the US. Newbie to the set (he’s replacing a high maintenance queen with a drinking problem) but not a newbie to the game, he slips in without much difficulty. However, the real dilemma is his unrequited attraction to the grumpy bartender in town.

The man behind the bar is smoking but his frigid attitude keeps everyone away. Seth definitely has a story, yet no one can get close enough to discover what it is. When Flynn breezes into town Seth finds his defenses weakening. As much as he tells himself he wants nothing to do with the Hollywood star, he can’t stay away. The heat becomes sticky when Flynn’s ex shows up and attempts to sabotage his new streak of fame and good fortune.

Ooo, good drama folks, seriously good stuff!

Excellent twist with the scenes from the TV series, but a clear shift might have made those takes stronger. It was simply added in without any distinction and I believe it may have benefited from a more visible separation. But, I am just as anxious to find out what happens with the boys on Coconut Cove as I am with the boys that play the boys on Coconut Cove. *whew* Did you follow that?

Flynn and Seth are both incredible and their chemistry and sexual tension is off the charts.

Sexy, highly entertaining, and way too short.

I laughed, I smiled, and I had a fabulous time.

Kudos to the Coconut Cove crew…. they all seem to have hidden secrets and juicy stories to tell.

So stay tuned, I’ve got a strong feeling this one’s going to soar to the top!
