Sandcastle Beach (Matchmaker Bay #3) by Jenny Holiday

From the USA Today bestselling "master of witty banter" (Entertainment Weekly) comes a hilarious and heartwarming romance about two enemies whose feud turns red-hot.

Maya Mehta will do anything to save her tiny, beloved community theater. Put on musicals she hates? Check. Hire an arrogant former-pop-star-turned-actor? Done. But what Maya really needs to save her theater is Matchmaker Bay's new business grant. She's got some serious competition, though: Benjamin "Law" Lawson, local bar owner, Jerk Extraordinaire, and Maya's annoyingly hot arch nemesis. Let the games begin.

Law loves nothing more than getting under Maya's skin, and making those gorgeous eyes dance with irritation. But when he discovers the ex-pop star has a thing for Maya, too, Law decides he's done waiting in the wings-starting with a scorching-hot kiss. Turns out there's a thin line between hate and irresistible desire, and Maya and Law are really good at crossing it. But when things heat up, will they allow their long-standing feud to get in the way of their growing feelings?

Includes the bonus novella Once Upon a Bride!

4 out of 5 stars

Sandcastle Beach was such a fun, sweet read! I have wanted Maya and Benjamin’s story since they were first introduced and was not disappointed. I loved their entertaining and witty banter and verbal sparring. This was a really cute enemies to lover’s story.

Maya and Law were wonderful. I liked learning about them and their history, what their struggles were, and what they were working towards. I liked their playful bickering and the underlying chemistry they had. I adored them opening up bit by bit, and how they'd come to a truce and have these heartfelt moments. There was a nice slow burn happening as well that I really enjoyed. I loved that tension, angst, and building anticipation for them to get together.

There is a great cast of characters in this inviting little town and they're the perfect addition to the story. The meddling old folks always crack me up, they’re total instigators but in a good way. I loved seeing previous couples from the first two books and getting updates on them. I love the friendships and bonds the men and women have adding another layer of goodness to the story.

This was a fast-paced, light read with really good details. It gave me just what I needed to keep me invested and rooting for Maya and Benjamin to get to their HEA. I loved the slight bit of overlap that there was with the last book, that was awesome. This was a wonderful addition to the Matchmaker Bay series that's sure to leave a smile on your face!
