Can an heiress get down and dirty with a local lifeguard…for longer than one night?
When a hippie girl with a free spirit grows up in an “old money” conservative family, arguments are sure to ensue. Right before her thirtieth birthday, Sage’s father, sick of her bohemian lifestyle, gives her an ultimatum – tear down The Surf Shack in Huntington Beach and build a five-star restaurant, or lose her trust fund AND his multi-billion dollar company.
Jax, the owner of The Surf Shack, has vowed to keep his late father’s shop running while juggling his full-time job as a beach lifeguard…even if the hot little thing in a business suit tempts him with her conflicting personalities. Is she a business shark in a designer suit? Or a Mother Earth loving hippie who wants to get dirty with him?
Ultimately, they’ll have to decide what’s worth fighting for: love or legacy.

This series has come to mean so much to me. Every book has something special that just adds that something more to the magic. Marika Ray gives us an extra sweet romance sprinkled with bits of humor and loaded with heartfelt emotion throughout in Beach Bum Billion-Heiress. A adored the way this book was simultaneously light hearted and still pulled at so many emotions. Along with the ongoing theme throughout the series of women supporting women and overall message of strong women Sage and Jax’s story is bursting at the seams with enough swoony sweetness to melt the coldest of hearts.
Sage is a wonderful combination of hippy, smart, sassy, and kind. Determined to pave her own way, but also prove herself to her father she’s a woman on a mission. Unfortunately that mission happens to be the surf shack built by Jax’s father. The thing that stood out to me and honestly made me love both Sage and Jax more (and the brilliant mind of Marika Ray) was this could have been nothing but angst and fighting, honestly that’s what I expected, but Sage is such an amazingly kind hearted woman this story became something even more unique with what comes of this.
Of course Jax himself is an incredible guy too. His heart is just as big as Sage’s and the instant attraction between these two is just the start of the beautiful relationship that grows. With the love and support (and meddling) of the Beach Squad at their backs this book is guaranteed to leave you feeling all kinds of warm and fuzzy.
Marika Ray spends her time behind a computer crafting stories, walking the beaches of southern California scoping out the lifeguards, and making healthy food for her kids and husband whether they like it or not. Prior to writing novels, Marika held various jobs in the finance industry, with private start-up companies, and then in health & fitness. Cats may have nine lives, but Marika believes everyone should have nine careers to keep things spicy.
Marika enjoys writing all types of fiction novels, based on what inspires her. Right now she’s working on stand-alone romances in the Beach Squad series, all about California lifeguards and their equally fearless women. Moderate suspense, a splash of humor, and lots of steamy romance…all with the beautiful ocean as a relaxing backdrop!
