~ 4.5 My Kind Of Vacation Stars ~

Have you ever wanted to go on a vacation and just pretend you are someone completely different? Just to step outside of your life…just for a little while??

Well that is what Sexcation by Heidi McLaughlin is about. It was a fun and interesting read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found the storyline to entertaining and the characters were relatable and lovable. I had no trouble at all connecting with these characters. I thought the flow and pace of this story worked very well. I enjoyed that Heidi kept some of their past and current lifestyles a secret, so you had to keep reading to find out all the answers. I enjoyed that this book wasn’t filled with a lot of excess drama.

Sexcation is a standalone novel told in Dual POV. This book is a chance meeting romance. This is a complete standalone with NO cliffhanger and no other book needs to be read before enjoying this story. We do meet some of Jackson’s friends in this book that I hope we get to read their story someday in the future.

In this book we meet Jade and Jackson. Both are on vacation in Bermuda, both needing to just escape for a little while. Their story is somewhat of a insta-love story, but it worked in this case. You understand more once you read the book. Both Jade and Jackson notice each other upon checking in and come to find out they are neighbors with adjoining rooms. Let the sexual tension begin!!! So what happens when Jackson uses Jade as an excuse to free himself from three handsy women??? A fun journey of two people who keep their personal lives secret, but spend some quality time together. What happens at the end of the week and you are supposed to go your separate ways, but you don’t want to?? Will Jade and Jackson ever come in contact with each other again once they leave Bermuda?? You have to read this book to find out.

I truly enjoyed both Jade and Jackson’s characters. Jade was a woman whose self esteem is kind of knocked down after her latest break up. At the advice of her best friend she takes this vacation and morphs into a better woman. I loved watching her grow and even become more adventurous. As for Jackson, what is there not to love. He is a sexy British man, who will make you swoon and melt your panties in the same breath. He totally makes you want to take a chance 😉

So if you are looking for an entertaining read, I think you should give this one a try. If you are a fan of Heidi’s books then I think you will want to read this book!!!


I laugh and find myself tempted by her hand, which sits on the metal table. After our impromptu snogging session, Jade put on a nice little sundress which has my imagination running wild and some strappy sandals. Her toes are painted a turquoise blue. I found it a little weird at first; normally I see reds or pinks on toes, but rarely a blue colour. I quite like it. I like it a lot. In fact, I’ve yet to find something about this woman I don’t like. 
“And yet, you didn’t. I came over and kissed you. You could’ve punched me, kicked me in the nuts, or groped me. I’m grateful you let me kiss you the way I did.”
She blushes again. “Why did you? I’m sure there are other, more beautiful women at the resort that would’ve been happy to oblige you.”
“But then I wouldn’t be here with my pretend wife, trying to get to know more about her.”
Her eyes don’t waver from mine as she takes a sip of her cocktail. “Do you really want to get to know me?”
“The fake you, yes. I don’t want to get cornered by one of the triplets and not know my facts.”
“Are they in fact, triplets?”
I shake my head. “I haven’t got a bloody clue, to be honest with you. Fake tits all look the same at the end of the day.”
Her mouth falls open into a sexy little O and images of other ways I can make that happen pop straight into mind. “I named them Muffy, Tuffy, and Buffy. The names seemed fitting,” she says with a shrug. 
I crack the fuck up. “Then that is what we’ll call them until they leave.”

“Do you know when that is? Or what room they’re in?”
I lean over the table and pick her hand up. “They leave after us, and no, I don’t, thank goodness. I don’t care either. I made you a promise and I always keep my promises.” I bring her hand to my lips and let them linger against her skin until a passer-by makes a comment about us being in love. 

Not love, lust though, and I couldn’t be happier that I chose her to be my distraction this week. When I finally let go of her hand, she picks up her drink and finishes it. 

“Want another one?” I ask, already standing by the time she nods. I lean down and kiss the top of her head, inhaling the scent of her shampoo. The smell of grapefruit assaults my senses, making my heart race. I groan as I walk into the restaurant. I could’ve easily waited for the waitress to come back to us, but I needed to step away from Jade for a minute. She’s fucking deadly with her innocent façade and I have a strong reason to believe I’m going to fall victim to her and love every minute of it. 
When I walk out, there’s a bloke talking to her as if it’s an everyday occurrence. I have never been jealous of any man until now. The pure rage I feel, watching him talk to my pretend wife almost takes over my body, yet I find the will to let it go. Who am I to stand in the way of her potential hook-ups?
