Sun, Sin and Surf
On vacation in Mexico with her two best friends, forty-one-year-old Celeste Kopp vows to break out of her middle-aged rut and live life to the fullest. Taking surf lessons is on the top of her to do list. However, when she meets sexy surf instructor Ben, the idea of a holiday fling with a younger man becomes the only thing on her list.
Ben is more than willing to live out Celeste’s fantasies as well as a few of his own. But their holiday romance turns out to be more than either of them bargained for when the connection between them deepens. Being with Celeste forces Ben to deal with his own baggage in a way he never expected.
As the vacation draws to a close, Celeste realizes she wants so much more from Ben than a holiday fling, but can she convince him that their future together is worth the risk?

Celeste stood on the deck of their suite and looked down at the rolling waves.
A surfer caught the edge of a wave and rode the crest toward the beach. The huge tattoo on his back shifted, making it look as if the bird was ready to take flight and she was unable to take her eyes off him as he moved to the rhythm of the water.
Nancy leaned on the railing beside Celeste and held out a margarita.
“That’s how I want to spend my vacation,” Celeste said, motioning to the surfer.
“What? With the guy or learning to surf?”
“Take your pick.” Celeste laughed. “Could you imagine hooking up with someone like that for vacation?” She fanned her face. “Wow. Unfortunately, I think I’m a little too old to attract someone like that, but I’d love to learn to surf. Always have.” The whole point of this vacation was to enjoy life. She took a sip of her drink, enjoying the cool burn of frozen tequila sliding down her throat. “I’m doing it. I’m going to take lessons and learn how to surf this trip. New me, new experiences. You with me?”
Nancy looked at Celeste then glanced down at her own body and slapped a hand to her ass, jiggling her butt. “I don’t think I have the same coordination as you do, this sucker throws off my balance.”
Celeste rolled her eyes. “Your balance is just fine and you know it, chicken.”
Sarah strolled out and leaned on the other side of Celeste against the rail. “What are you talking about?”
“Cel wants to do that,” Nancy said, pointing down to the surfer.
“Oh, me too. Damn, I didn’t know they made men like that in real life.”
“Not the guy, the surfing.” Celeste smacked Sarah’s arm.
“Oh well…why not the guy?”
