Audiobook Review: Sun of a Beach by Mia Sosa

Author: Mia Sosa
Narrator:  Valentina Ortiz & Sean Crisden
Title: Sun of a Beach
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Chick Lit, Fiction, Novella, Short story 
Format: Audiobook
Published: April 8th 2021
Where I got It: Audible 

No-nonsense executive Naomi Reyes can’t believe she let her boss manipulate her into babysitting Donovan Taylor, the most insufferable creative director of all time. Worse, she’ll be trapped on a private island with him, while a bevy of gorgeous models vie for a coveted chance to grace the cover of M-Class magazine’s inaugural swimsuit edition—and, if the office rumors are true, an equally coveted place in Donovan’s bed. Still, if she survives the trip with no major mishaps, she’ll earn a shot at landing a dream job as an M-Class writer. Easy peasy, right?


Donovan Taylor detests people who try to undermine his artistic control, and his boss’s latest machinations send Donovan to a very devious place. Sure, Ms. Reyes will get her precious photo shoot, but it won’t be what she expects. Bonus? Ruffling the feathers of the humorless exec who’s never liked Donovan will be satisfying, too—assuming she doesn’t drown him in the ocean first.

Let the beach games begin . . . 

I had to read this. The cover and the title???? CUTE! Plus I am longing for spring. I want some warmth! It has been terribly cold here lately. 

Here we follow Naomi Reyes who is a no-nonsense executive assistant who wants to make change happen at the magazine she works for her. She brings up some ideas to her boss and instead...she finds herself having to babysit Donovan Taylor on a photo shoot in the Bahamas. He is the most insufferable creative director of all time but also the most handsome. Now, she is trapped on a private island with him. On the other hand, Donovan is not amused to be babysat either and his artistic control is being undermine. He comes up with a devious plan. Naomi and the boss will get their photo shoot, but it won't be what they expected. Will they tear each other apart? Or work together to make this shoot happen? 

This was a lot of fun! It was a novella and it was a quick listen....but I want more. I want to see them find their path. Maybe get married. Maybe start running the magazine together? That would be cute! But yessss the ending needed more. 

They are made for each other, but it took a minute to get past the enemy stage. Which makes sense. But beaches and drinks will find a way to knock down that wall. 

I loveeeeeeeeeeed his idea and how Naomo spinned it to have some meaning. They certainly work well together! I won't spoil it, but I loveddddd it. 

The narrators were great. They fit perfect. I've heard his voice before, but she was new. I'll have to listen to more by both of them! 

In the end, this was a nice, quick listen. Great story. Great characters. Great narrators. Great setting. Def recommend this! 4 stars. My only issue was that it needed more in the end.

This one was cute. I agree, it could have been longer, but it worked. I'm excited to read her next full-length book out this spring.
