Title: Sweet Dreams
Series: Beach Squad Series #1
Author: Marika Ray
Release Date: February 22, 2018
A romance so sweet it’ll give you a cavity…
After the devastating loss of my parents when I was in college, I vowed to focus all my energy on fulfilling my promise to my mom: to open up the hot chocolate store we’d always dreamed of running together.
No distractions. My plans are set.
But things heat up faster than I can handle when a bronzed lifeguard pursues me in the most delicious of ways. Mix in a stalker determined to throw me off my game, and a comical, ass-kicking Beach Squad (okay, ‘squad’ is a littler over the top…it’s just me and my two best friends)…well, then you have a situation that requires a level of bravery I don’t know if I possess.
I may appear to be a damsel in distress, but I can save my own damn self, thank you very much. And I might just keep that hottie lifeguard as the whipped cream on top of my sweet dreams.

Sweeter than all the hot chocolate in the world, Sweet Dreams is the epitome of feel good, melt your heart romance. Sprinkled with a bit of mystery Esa and Ivan’s story will have you longing to be lounging on a beach full of hot lifeguards while reading. I lost count of how many times I said “awww” while reading this. Between fantastic friends, wonderful family, and Ivan himself I was in a constant state of warm and fuzzy feelings.
Esa was a total sweetheart. Fiercely independent and tackling the business world like a boss doesn’t stop her from having a heart of gold and making everyone around her feel loved. Having lived through her fair share of heartache yet overcoming it all, Ivan is exactly the man she deserves! Ivan is quite literally perfect. Not only is the man ridiculously hot, he’s also exceptionally sweet and off the charts romantic.
“My favorite kind of romance!! …the climax near the end showed the strength of our girl and the support of our hero. It was PERFECT!!”
“This is the first I have read by this author and glad to see it is a series. I really like this group of friends and want more.”
“Amazing debut. Great blend of sweet romance, heat, and light suspense.”
