I absolutely LOVE the Welcome to Paradise series by S.L. Scott. If you’re looking for some summer fun and romance, this is the series for you! Check it out 🙂
I thought I was strong… But I wasn’t when it came to Evan Ashford.
The rich, cocky playboy I met within minutes of landing in Hawaii didn’t give me arrogance. He gave me his heart and his hard truths. In return, I gave him everything, including my trust. The man made me weak in the knees, but I soon learned the bad boy surfer had a reputation that preceded him and an image to uphold.
The sexual chemistry was unquestionable, our emotions irrational, but our love was undeniable. Together our pasts didn’t matter. Our different backgrounds were irrelevant. He made me feel his life wasn’t worth living without me in it. He took my breath away and saved each one of them, owning me wholly.
Evan became my life, but with all the obstacles that stood in our way, could he become my future?
Life was perfect. Paradise was found in the arms of a redeemed bad boy. Evan Ashford’s cocky side didn’t stand a chance against true love. He pursued me with an unbridled determination, a passion that couldn’t be denied, winning me over. Our lives are now set… or should have been. But nothing stays perfect forever and happiness comes with a price.
We’ve paid that price.
Sometimes we may not get the answers we seek, but we’ve learned to cherish the gifts we’ve been given. It doesn’t matter what life throws at us or takes away, we’ve found love and we will fight for what matters most—family.
Good Intentions Excerpt
She stops, and with a telling grin says, “You know, despite what you may think, I’m actually not an easy lay.”
I can’t stop the laugh. Trust me, I try. “Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone how fast you jumped my bones.”
“Jumped your bones? I did not jump your bones. You have clearly forgotten how the events of our first date went down.”
“Well,” I say, rubbing my chin. “It wasn’t really a date from what I recall and you still ended up in my bed… under me one time…” I close my eyes remembering how fucking sexy she was that day. “… on top of me another. Oh, and I can’t forget how hot your ass looked from behind. I clearly remember three different times.”
“I thought it was two.”
“I didn’t include the pool action, so definitely three… at least, and I wore you out, Miss I’m-Not-An-Easy-La—Ouch!” I rub my arm where she knuckles me, then laugh. “You’re feisty, Miss Wray.”
“It’s one of the reasons you fell in love with me.”
“It’s one of the many reasons I fell in love with you. Your easy ways were another.”
She jerks me to a stop in the middle of the lobby. “Oh my God, Evan, you make me sound like a whore.”
Wrapping my arms around her neck, I pull her close, and whisper, “Do you regret being with me that first day?”
“No, none of it.”
“You’re not a whore.” I kiss her on the nose. “You’re not easy. We both knew there was something more between us, something different. We did what we wanted and what felt right.”
5 Things with Evan and Mallory of Welcome to Paradise
Mallory: This is funny. *giggles* And kind of hard.
Evan: It’s easy. I can name way more than 5 things I love about you.
Mallory: *leans head on his shoulder* You say the sweetest things.
Evan: *coughs* Ummm…. You got nothing for me other than this will be kind of hard to name 5 things about the man you’re supposedly in love with? *pokes her in the ribs and makes her smile*
Mallory: I can name plenty, but most of those should be kept between us, if you know what I mean.
Evan: I like the way you think… and kiss and… Ow! *rubs arm* Fine. Let’s do this because I know a few other things I’d like to be doing instead.
Mallory: *Smirks* Okay, I’ll go first. I like the way you look when you sleep.
Evan: You watch me sleep?
Mallory: You watch me.
Evan: Touché. Okay, my turn. I like your ass a lot.
Mallory: Wow. You’re just kicking right in with the romantic gestures, aren’t you? *rolls eyes*
Evan: I could’ve said I don’t like your ass. *cocks eyebrow*
Mallory: True. I’ll take the ass-liking instead.
Evan: You are one dirty girl and I’ll show you how much I like your ass lat—
Mallory: My turn again. I like your forearms and the way you can see the muscles moving. You’re strong and it’s really sexy.
Evan: *waggles eyebrows* I like watching you move. You’re quiet, but confident and caring in your actions.
Mallory: Awww, that’s so sweet. So you watch me?
Evan: You watch me sleep, so all’s fair.
Mallory: Ummm… *taps chin* What can I share? What can I share? Oh, I love your back and your body. I should just say I love your body. You’re the sexiest man I’ve ever seen and the most handsome.
Evan: Well, well, well. The sexiest and most handsome *smiles all cocky* I like where this is going.
Mallory: Your turn.
Evan: I love your curves—the ones from your neck to your shoulders and the other ones from your waist to your hips. I like that you have curves. And the ones from your tits… er, I mean breasts. You have a hot body.
Mallory: What if those curves changes or whatever?
Evan: *narrows eyes in thought* I’ll love the new ones too because I love you.
Mallory: *cups his face* Thank you. Well I love that you still open the door for me.
Evan: *surprised* Why would I not?
Mallory: *shrugs* I don’t know. I guess that most guys do that more in the beginning of the relationship. Once they have you… well, most of those kinds of gestures disappear.
Evan: *shaking head* Men suck. I’m embarrassed for my gender and I’ll always open the door for you. I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to do it, so I’m not gonna squander the chance. *rubs hands together* Now back to what I love about you. There’s this way you say my name. It’s in your accent, but it’s mixed with your emotions and makes me smile… feel loved or whatever. It shows you really care about me.
Mallory: *smiles* Evan. Evan. Evan.
Evan: Yeah, that’s it. I especially like when you’re shouting it out while coming.
Mallory: I thought this list was supposed to be rated PG?
Evan: Really? Then we blew that when we first opened our mouths. Oops.
Mallory: I like your lips and the way you kiss me. It’s all passion and romance.
Evan: You took my answer. *leans forward and kisses her* I love the feel of your lips on mine and how when you kiss me, it’s like an invitation. *kisses her again*
Mallory: *dreamy sigh*
Evan: You’re beautiful, you know that.*strokes her hair back*
Mallory: I feel the same about you. *sits on his lap, wrapping her arms around him*
Evan: I think it’s my turn. I love your eyes—the green with gold flecks, the way you look at me like I can do no wrong, the fire in them, and your kind side. I love the way all your emotions can be read in your eyes. They’re quite stunning.
Mallory: *soft smile* Thank you. I love when you call me baby. This may sound strange and I probably shouldn’t admit this since it’s against the women’s movement, but there’s a possessiveness to it that makes me hot for you. It’s just so sexy rolling off your tongue.
Evan: I don’t even know what count we’re at, but we’re done here. *stands up holding her in his arms* I have plans for you and there’s no time like the present.
Mallory: Horny boy.
Evan: I’ll show you horny.
Mallory: Oh, I just bet you will. *giggles*
Flirty and Dirty Book Blog’s Review of Good Intentions by S.L. Scott
AMAZING SEXY HOT SIZZLIN’ SUMMER READ!! I was completely sold the first time I saw the cover for Good Vibrations by S L Scott, is was so sexy and fun looking, I knew I had to read this book! I knew absolutely nothing about the story (I rarely read a book’s synopsis) so I was ecstatic when Good Vibrations turned out to be everything I hoped it would be and more Right from the first few pages, Good Vibrations had my complete and uninterrupted attention! No slow start to this story, no sir-eeeeee, it gets right into the good stuff and I wanted more! Definitely the fun and sexy, with the perfect amount of angst, summer read I was hoping for
Mallory needs an escape so she heads to Hawaii to stay with her best friend Sunny. Hoping to clear her head over the summer, fate has other plans for Mallory’s summer when it puts a handsome stranger immediately in her path, but that’s the last thing on her mind (or so she tries to convince herself). Love Mallory, she made me remember what it was like to be young and falling in love, the good parts and the bad parts. Evan is tired of his bad boy reputation. He wants more out of his life but he’s just not sure how to obtain it. Then he sees her! Right from the beginning there was something about Evan’s character that kept me wanting more. And no it wasn’t the fact that his is every woman’s holiday fantasy! There was something about him that I couldn’t stop thinking about. Noah is a hot local who is completely smitten with Mallory but I never felt right about him. Something about him didn’t sit right for me. Who will win her heart?? All of the characters are fabulous, the good and the bad characters.
Good Vibrations is exactly the sexy summer adventure that I would have wanted when I was young and carefree. This fabulous story
is the perfect sizzling, sexy read you are looking for this summer! And the ending…. OH EM GEEE!!! Seriously I nearly messaged S L Scott at 3am to freak out!!! I will say no more though as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone.
I really can’t stress how much I loved Good Vibrations! Hot story, fab characters! You won’t want to put down!!! Make sure to have somewhere to cool off this summer while you read Good Vibrations, I can promise you’ll get hot! Nic 5/5
Flirty and Dirty Book Blog’s Review of Good Intentions by S.L. Scott
I absolutely loved Good Vibrations by S.L. Scott and couldn’t wait for the release of Good Intentions. S.L. Scott did not disappoint with the continuation of Mallory and Evan’s story. I found Good Intentions to be a quick read. There was plenty of story to keep my attention focused Not as angst filled as Good Vibrations was, I found Good Intentions to be just as sexy and hot! S.L. Scott sure knows how to write some sexy hotness As far as sequels go I loved Good Intentions, the characters I loved and hated were just as fab as they were in Good Vibrations. The storyline had a great flow that kept me wanting to turn the pages. I loved where S.L. Scott took the Mallory/Evan/Noah storyline, LOVED IT! I’m also excited that there will be a book 3 in this series, YAY!
If you loved Good Vibrations you won’t want to miss out on Good Intentions! Nic 4/5
Flirty and Dirty Book Blog’s Review of Good Sensations by S.L. Scott
I’m sad to have finished reading the final instalment in the Welcome to Paradise series by S.L. Scott, Good Sensations, because it means that I’ve finished this fab series. Good Sensations was the perfect way to end Evan and Mallory’s story. *inserts gush* Just like the rest of the books in this series, Good Sensations was everything I had hoped for and so much more. I jumped right back in as if I was hanging out with old friends again.
It’s been great watching the characters in this story grow and evolve and I promise some of the character transformations will blow your mind, who knew! Can’t wait for you to meet some of the new character. Clay Wray…Bahahahaha! Love it! Evan is still one of my favourite dreamy swoon worthy book boyfriends and I think I fell for him even more this time around. *inserts sigh*
I have loved this entire series but Good Sensations is my favourite. S.L. Scott kept me on my toes as there were a few situations I wasn’t sure whether she was going to mess with my head or not. Without giving spoilers away, I will say that Good Sensations had my heart feeling very full while reading it. Not heavy and angst filled, it was light and easy read full of sexiness, romance and fun. Just the read I was looking for to pull me from my funk. Thank you S.L. Scott for this amazing end to an amazing series. Nic 5/5
