BLOG TOUR ~ The Best Friend Bargain by Robin Bielman
The Best Friend Bargain
Kisses in the Sand #2
by Robin Bielman
Publication Date: August 8, 2016
Genres: Adult, Entangled Lovestruck, Contemporary Romance
Olivia Lincoln has a plan guaranteed to get her life back on track. A plan that involves her best friend, Danny. And he’s on board, too…until she blurts out that they’re engaged and expecting a baby, and the news spreads like wildfire.
The problem? Danny doesn’t do marriage. Or family. And everyone knows it, including Olivia.
As irritated as he might be, protecting Olivia is what Danny does. But put best friends under one roof, add house rules begging to be broken, accidental nakedness, and pancakes in bed, and what started as a marriage between friends threatens to turn into the real deal…which would ruin everything.
She pressed her lips together and tried really hard not to laugh, but it didn’t work and she burst into a fit of uncontrollable giggles. Not entirely because he was funny, but because his teasing question heightened her awareness of him. Made her nervous.
And horny. So, so horny.
“God, I love your laugh,” he said quietly, his gaze drifting over her chin, her lips, her cheeks, her eyes.
Liv stopped. Giggling. Moving. Breathing. And thinking that they could go back to the way things were before they’d kissed on the beach and her world had turned on its axis.
She loved laughing with Danny. He’d always had a direct link to her funny bone. Her mind searched for the times Will had made her laugh. Once, maybe twice? In six months. How had she not realized that until now?
“Danny,” she said, whisper soft.
“I’m not telling you anything I haven’t told you before.”
True. He didn’t keep his compliments to himself, especially when her loud, high-pitched guffaw swayed others to laugh along with her. But the gleam in his eyes said he wanted to back up his statement with another kiss, and that had never happened before.
Time to stop looking at those twin pools of honey and reading things she wasn’t quite ready to tackle.
“Don’t read anything into it,” he added, like he had secret passage inside her head. “I’m just a guy telling his best friend she’s fun to be around.”
Seriously? He had to throw out movie star lines like that? Could he say the wrong thing just once so he pissed her off? Whenever he talked she forgot about keeping him in the friend zone. The only zone she wanted him in was the touchdown one. Doing a dirty dance with their hot, sweaty naked bodies entwined.
She leaned closer to him. “Then stop looking at me like that.”
The Best Friend Bargain Playlist:
Hey everyone! Happy summer!
I don’t listen to music while I’m writing. I’m one of those writers that like to have it quiet when I sit at my laptop to work. But music is a big part of my pre-writing ritual. I’ll listen to music to help get my head in my story (very often while I’m also running on the treadmill) and then I’ll sit down and hopefully the words flow. So, here’s the playlist for the songs I listened to over and over again while I was writing Danny and Olivia’s story, The Best Friend Bargain.
“Hold Me Up” by Conrad Sewell
“Levels” by Nick Jonas
“Sleeping With A Friend” by Neon Trees
“The Other Side” by Jason Derulo
“Ready For Your Love” by Gorgon City
“Take Me” by Rufus
“Simply Being Loved” by BT
“To The Skies” by Kaskade
Happy reading and music listening!
BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy
The Best Friend Bargain was a good read. The third book in the Kisses in the Sand series – a series I hadn’t read anything else of – but one that I’m gonna go check out soon. I didn’t feel not having read the other books took anything away from my understanding of the story or the relationships between the characters.
Liv and Danny were good together. Best friends for over 15 years, they’d been there for all the ups and downs and would do anything for each other…. This is where one of my ‘hmmms’ came in. IF they were such good friends, why did Olivia need to run away to the UK and not contact him for most of the time she was gone; to then turn up our of the blue and expect him to happily follow her request to be her fiancé and the baby daddy? Yep, I get he’d do just about anything for her and I think that’s what friendship is about, but hell, to not speak up and voice his concerns and just go along with things, that didn’t feel completely right – especially given that Liv has always known that his health issues had already stopped him from committing to anyone relationship wise.
The main characters were likeable – though I could have smacked Liv once or twice for her actions – they had great banter, did have a connection (one that certain grew as the book went on) and they could read each other really well. The ‘friends to lovers’ trope is usually a firm favourite of mine and while The Best Friend Bargain was a good read, it didn’t knock my socks off. For me, the time lapses in the story were a bit odd, I felt a few things were skipped or skimmed over just a little too quickly, and although sweet at the end, it did feel a little too predictable a points.
As I said at the start, this was overall a good read and I will go back and read the rest of the series from Robin Bielman. My rating for TBFB is 3.75*

A temporary agreement neither could keep…
Brainy, organized Sophie Birch is no beach bunny. In fact, she’s totally out of her element among the sun-bronzed crowd at a film festival in beautiful White Strand Cove. When a surf lesson introduces her to Zane Hollander, suddenly she’s up close and personal with the world’s sexiest surf star. But what can a great-looking, experienced athlete possibly see in a klutzy out-of-towner who’s never set foot in the ocean?
Zane Hollander’s playboy reputation has never been a problem…until recently. Now his management team wants him on his best behavior to entice a meaningful new sponsor. Sophie Birch is the perfect girl to help reform his image. She’s genuine and respected—and their relationship is purely fictional. But the more Sophie blooms under the beachy sun, the more Zane knows he’ll just break her heart. Because nothing’s more important to Zane than following the tide.
The one guy she shouldn’t want…
Honor Mitchell has lived with guilt and regret for a long time, so when she promises to do the things on her dying best friend’s wish list, she’s determined to follow through and do something right for a change. But when she’s thrown together for wedding duties with the one man who complicates her vow–just by looking at him–she has to put her faith in Bryce Bishop’s pledge to help her, no strings attached.
Bryce’s near one-night stand with his ex-girlfriend’s best friend a few months ago might have been a mistake, but helping the beautiful, free-spirited Honor with her promise isn’t. His trust in women is shot, but he can’t help but play his best man card to his advantage and help Honor tick off the items on his ex’s list, even if it puts him in a no-win situation. Because his assistance might get Honor what she wants, but suddenly being the do-good guy puts his plans–and heart–in serious jeopardy.

DUAL COVER REVEAL ~ Full Package and Joy Stick by Lauren Blakely
From the NYT Bestselling author of BIG ROCK and MISTER O, comes two brand new,
hot and hilarious standalone romantic comedies…
FULL PACKAGE and JOY STICK!
Readers will find witty dialogue, smoking hot sex scenes, and heartfelt moments in these side-splitting romantic comedies, mixed with the dirty-talking, gifted heroes we’ve come to love from Lauren Blakely!
FULL PACKAGE is set to release on January 9, 2017, and JOY STICK is coming your way in May 2017!
Check out these fantastic covers designed by Helen Williams with photography by Rob Lang.
From the New York Times Bestselling author of MISTER O and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…
I’ve been told I have quite a gift.
Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing….
Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place.
Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.
I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says.
Surprise—neither one of us sleeps.
And even though we agree to return to roomies-without-benefits, I quickly realize I want more than someone to split the utilities with. Now all I want is to spend every night—and every day—with my gorgeous roommate.
Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too.
What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?
Pre-Order FULL PACKAGE
(Releasing January 9, 2016)
Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood. You probably also crave a ride that can go all night long.
I’m at your service. Come and ride on my Joy Stick…
That’s what I like to say to the ladies. Or I would if I were total pig. It’s far too easy in this world to strut around like a peacock when you’ve got all these other features in your favor. But just like the custom cars I build with class and sophistication, that’s how I treat my women.
Don’t worry. I absolutely do my best work dirty…both in the shop, and between the sheets. Work and play — that’s what my life has been, and I f&*king love it. I’m completely, 100% driven. Until one woman comes along and throws a wrench in my plans. The one woman I should absolutely, positively never take for a joy ride.
Now that’s all I want to do with her…she’s so far off-limits, but that’s exactly where I want to go with her.
Get ready for a wild ride…
