Angell’s latest is a bit of a Romeo and Juliet story, if Romeo had started out hating Juliet. The hero is a real jerk in the beginning, but improves greatly by the end. Though the main characters are interesting, it’s the two secondary romances that are more enjoyable and make this story worthwhile, despite an ending that’s a bit of a letdown.

Shaye Cates has disliked Trace Sanders since they were kids, a dislike that is fanned by generations of their families feuding. Now Trace is CEO of Sanders Shores, and, having returned home to Florida to help out while his father recovered from a fall, has decided to stay. Shaye runs the boardwalk and fishing village nearby. She finds she must work with Trace on a beach volleyball tournament that could bring in the revenue her family needs to keep their business solvent. This is a proposition that makes both Trace and Shaye very unhappy and feeds an attraction to each other they don‘t want. (KENSINGTON, Jun., 288 pp., $14.00)
