Review: California Girl (West Coast Girlz #1) by Sandra Edwards

Book Blurb

California Girl is the first book in the West Coast Girlz trilogy and is also available in the West Coast Girlz Omnibus.

After divorcing her cheating rock-star ex-husband Ray Hudson, Veronica Stanford flees to Europe to let the dust settle after she makes sure the divorce leaves Ray in financial dire straits.

In St. Tropez, after a night of serious partying, she finds herself married again--this time to a very sexy Greek named Niko Leandros.

Immediately she begins to suspect that Niko is actually an actor who's been hired by her ex to discredit her. The problem is, Veronica is so consumed with her smoldering attraction to Niko that she fears, through him, Ray just might get his revenge.

PLEASE NOTE: California Girl is a short novella of approximately 11,000 words.


Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

In this West Coast Girlz book, Veronica Stanford wakes up in a strange hotel room with a strange man. He is a Greek businessman named Nico and apparently they are married. Unfortunately she couldn’t remember much of what happened the night before.

When she stops to think about it, it sounds like something her ex-husband Ray would do to get back at her. Nico has to be an actor hired by Ray. She keeps believing this and treats Nico accordingly until the truth comes out. Her shock is instant as is her remorse for her treatment towards him. It is definitely time to go home.

This short story was just getting started and then it was over. I liked how it started and the conclusions Veronica jumped to. It was funny to watch Nico’s shock when his charm couldn’t get what he wanted. I could also picture Veronica’s reaction when she learned the truth. Her shock was almost tangible in the sense you could feel it. I imagined her face as she watched the news and I chuckled. Boy was she wrong.

I wish it had been a lot longer. Nico had his issues as did Veronica with her ex-husband. It would have been interesting to see the story evolve more. I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
