    1. Oh what a clever little author Tara Lain is. In her latest offering she not only gave us a very different feel to this book compared to the others in the Series but weaved a moral message into the storyline regarding environmental issues and the toxicity it can cause if not addressed, which gave me something to think aboutHer main protagonists love story also had the potential of being a toxic relationship disaster - for Adam, it's all about the money. For Sky, it's all about being safe in the e [...]


    2. This was my favorite one so far. I still spent some time in the beginning trying to remember who these people were or if we met them in the previous books. I loved in the closet Adam. He was up front about it and spent most of the book questioning his life and the reasons for doing so. Sky was fabulous. The octopus incident had me laughing out loud. He was funny and sexy, and when they got together, they sizzled. Another good read that is keeping me hooked on the Balls books.


    3. 3.5 starsNot sure how to review Beach Balls it didn't hit every button for me some of it was enjoyable and funny but there was a missing element in the relationship between Adam and Sky it wasn't as sexy or as dreamy as I would have liked. That sizzling attraction that made Fire Balls so good was not there or I just didn't feel it. Still it was a nice light easy read with a few cute moments.


    4. Out of the four books in this series " Beach Balls " felt like it had taken a step away from the series. I was expecting this to be Jerry's story but Tara introduced two new characters who have never been mentioned before so that's possibly why it felt different. Looking back now, to when I first read it, I remember thinking then, that it almost felt as if it could have been a standalone outside of the series. Needless to say I still really enjoyed it. Adam and Sky have great chemistry and the p [...]


    5. 3.5 starsThis book was a light and easy read. I liked both Adam and Sky and thought the story on how they met with the octopus was kinda cute. Unfortunately there just seemed to be something missing with the way the storyline was set up. I felt that as the reader I was given just enough information to move the story along, but never enough to feel connected with what was happening or with the characters completely. Still it was an enjoyable read.


    6. After reading the recent FAST Balls, I realized I had missing one in the Balls to the Walls series--this one--and hurried to remedy that.As usual with Tara Lain, I enjoyed this quick, easy-to-read romance. Sky and Adam were both very appealing, and I liked the antagonism sub-plot and how they both affected each other's outlooks on life. It was rewarding to see Adam come out of the closet and find himself.This was quite a good read. Not my favorite in the series but very good. Recommended!


    7. I really, really liked this one. Best of the series so far i think. It was cute, sweet, funny, a touch of angst but not too much, and some serious underwater making out. Such a great read from start to finish.


    8. Definitely better than the first two in this series, but still not impressing me. I think it's safe to say I'm not a huge fan of Tara Lain.


    9. Two words: Underwater blowjob. This was my favorite book in the series so far (but that's not really saying much).


    10. Beach Balls is the third book in the Balls to the Walls series and so far, it’s my favorite in the series. I loved the chemistry between the two heroes as well as their drive to do what it right. As usual, Ms. Lain did an excellent job at writing a funny, heartfelt, sexy read that lived in my heart and mind long after I finished the book.Adam James has been going through the motions of life for a long time. As a successful lawyer, he is afraid to tell his peers and others about his homosexuali [...]


    11. I really enjoy this series. The plot to this had me hesitating because it could have been cheesy and annoying, but just like with Fire Balls, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment. It was paced very well and they didn't rush into the drama so that we got bored. The first third was us meeting Adam, then his and Sky's meeting and realizing they had chemistry and starting a thing. Their altercation/climax/realization-that-they're-nemesis came at just the right time and developed naturally without feeli [...]


    12. This review was posted at Under the CoversI can't say I loved this more than the second book in this series, but I really liked it. We have two guys that are pretty equally matched, both physically and mentally. But they are pretty far apart in everything in between.Adam is a developer, lots of money, cares about appearances, drives a nice fancy car, ohh and pretends to be straight. Sky is a nature loving, rebreather diver, vegetarian, and openly gay.They meet accidentally while Sky is diving an [...]


    13. Two guys meet and fight over an octopus, that isn't the start of a joke but how Sky and Adam meet in this great story by Tara Lain. Adam is an attorney for a development company and the men he works for are anti-gay. So Adam hides his sexuality during his everyday life but treats himself to parties with other gay men where they don't use their real names. Adam meets Sky while diving and fight over an octopus. During a town council meeting over a project Adam is working on an expert witness is ca [...]


    14. Sweet easy story, I read it at the beach, but alas no balls, none in the story or at the beach! *sigh*It was cute, nothing deep or really exciting, like Candice I was missing a little something 'special'.But I enjoyed it and sort of wished Sky had grovled a bit, I didn't see Adam as all at fault in this one, and thought Sky was a bit 'holier-than -thou', but he understood better at the end!(view spoiler)[ I was also a bit thrown that they are moving in together, yet tell Adam's parents they don' [...]


    15. Better than I was expecting with Sky and Adam on opposing sides of environmental issues. Of course, they didn't realize this when the first met and got all dirty with each other. Adam was just a sad guy. Everything about him was kind of pathetic in a rich guy-in the closet way. Sky was fabulous, of course. Mr. Vegetarian, environmental crusader, hippyish was just kind of perfect. I did find it odd that they both had giant dicks. Like the smaller of the two was 9 inches. What? Holy crap! Cute sto [...]


    16. I loved this book! I think this is my favorite in the series (well, at least for now!), in part because it is more about overcoming your own perceived bias than those that can be imposed on you by society, although there is that too! But mostly, it's about Sky and Adam deciding if they can look beyond their own fear and judgement to take a chance on being more, and maybe finding love.Very hot scenes of course, but I really enjoyed the quiet moments - for the leads on their time together are defi [...]


    17. I received a copy to read and review for Wicked ReadsI really enjoy this series. Each book can be read as a stand alone. These books are low angst with lots of sex and happy endings. Adam and Sky are so good together and as a reader I could feel their connection. We did here from a few characters from previous books but if you never read those books you wouldn't have known it or missed anything. I just want to know if friends like Carly really exist and if so I want one! This was a fast sweet re [...]


    18. It's good to have strong principles, but we need to reexamine them from time to time to make sure they are still relevant. Broad, sweeping generalizations such as all developers are crooks and all conservationists are reactionaries isn't healthy or fair. Adam and Sky of Tara Lain's book 'Beach Balls' are both very determined men with very specific attitudes toward certain things which seemingly put them on different sides of the fence. If they want to be together, they need to dig deep and decid [...]


    19. 4.5mmgoodbookreviews.wordpress/Oh my, what a book, definitely my favorite of the Ball’s series.Adam is an excellent character, very well written and I loved him. He is a lawyer working for a developer company and while he loves his job he is somehow an honest lawyer. Heh, I laughed at that in the beginning, but I soon saw how brilliant a character he was. His current case has him somehow in the blind. Not everything is revealed to him and that unnerves Adam. While his work has nearly drained h [...]


    20. This was the third book in a loosely tied series set in and around Laguna Beach, CA. It was an enjoyable read that was a bit different from the first two in the series though it continues with an opposite attract/one lover in the closet theme. The fun in the sun feel was enjoyable for a summer read (though it would work in the winter to remind one of the warmth of summer on the beach).Adam is in the closet and a lawyer representing a big development group. Sky is an environmental expert who is c [...]


    21. 3.5A sweet, short story, not too much angst, easy to read, and problems that can all be solved beautifully by the end. In other words, a typical Balls to the Wall story.What I like about these books is that appearances are often not related to the roles these guys play in their relationship - you get smaller tops or pretty boys taking charge, at least in the bedroom. That's something I always enjoy because it disrupts the predictable flow of expectation and actual behaviour.This book was a bit m [...]


    22. This story is very different to the first two in the series and is really not about sport at all - unless you count the bit of scuba diving that occurs - so I had to reclassify on my bookshelves! It also has a very different feel to the others in the series without really crossing over with any of the characters we have met so far (apart from a brief mention of Roman's paintings).Not that this is a bad thing because I totally enjoyed the story.This story brings together a very much in the closet [...]


    23. Beach Balls was certainly my favorite of the Balls to the Wall books. There was just something about Sky that made him so easily likable. It’s also not every day where you get to read a couple that meets while fighting over an octopus. That right there makes for a reason to grab this book. Adam and Sky have an instant attraction that neither put up a fight about. If anything they both run blindly into a hot fling. They’re compatible and both want the same things sexually. That is enough for [...]


    24. I like this story just as much as the previous story in this series, Fire Balls. I didn't think I'd like a character as much as I liked Rodney, but I really liked Sky and Adam in this one. First, I absolutely loved the blurb about Adam being so far in the closet that he could find Narnia. Right away I knew I would like this tale about a closeted lawyer and the environmental expert who meet under mysterious circumstances and really like each other only to find out they are on the opposite sides o [...]


    25. I'm not keen on this style of trope - legal/environmental adversaries. However this wasn't too much. I held reservations throughout most the story, waiting for the annoying blow up, (view spoiler)[but the 'business' MC was the giver. It made the whole book way more enjoyable. (hide spoiler)]I'm slowly making my way through this series, but realistically I think I prefer TL's later work and I may just concentrate on those books ;) Guess it will really depend on the book precis now rather than me [...]


    26. The 3rd book in Tara Lain's amazing Balls to the Wall series, Beach Balls has more than lived up to the first two books in terms of fabulous story-telling.Adam James is a CA developer. Sky Sea Mickeljohn is an environmentalist. Hmmm - need I say more?The sparks and love that fly between the two makes for a romantic and VERY sexy story. I thoroughly enjoyed this installment and am anxious for the next.


    27. Another winner in the "Balls to the Wall" line from Tara Lain. Ms. Lain writes believable gay characters with real-world problems, but doesn't skimp on the heat factor either. And I love how we see characters from other books in the series popping up again. If you like m/m romance that pulls at the heartstrings but still manages to be hot, give Ms. Lain a try!


    28. This book was as entertaining as the first 2. Great, sweet and fun characters. Love Adam with all his conflicts, but still a good person at heart. Sky falling for his arch enemy, but seeing pass that to the person his is. Would have like to see more of the ones from the first 2 books, but it still was a great read!


    29. I'm not quite sure why I enjoy these "Balls" books, but I do. Perhaps it's because of the strongly individual characters -- no cookie cutouts here. The books are too short to really develop everything to its full potential, but they are entertaining nonetheless.


    30. I Loved this booky thing I wanted was more time with the boys from the other two books.but other than that this book was really, really good. The way Tara brought her main character out of the closet was done in a sensitive and believable mannerGreat job Ms. Lain ;)
