Ever want to throw a nice book into your beach bag but don’t want something too lengthy or wordy to consume your day in the sun? Here are the top three best books you can bring along to keep you entertained while you lay in the sand.
1. The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory
The night before the wedding of his ex-girlfriend, Drew is beside himself due to his lack of a plus one. But fate was on his side when riding the elevator with Alexa Monroe, the chief of the staff for the city’s mayor because after being stuck together due to a power outage on the elevator, Alexa agreed to attend the wedding with Drew. They decide to act like they had been together all along to fool Drew’s friends and in doing so start to fall for each other. The novel focuses on Alexa and Drew’s journey attempting to make room for each other in their lives but struggle along the way. This is one of my personal favorites and was my go-to beach book but only was able to bring it twice because I read it so fast!
