Peek Inside Keeping Mr. Right Now

Brainy, organized Sophie Birch is no beach bunny, but when a surf lesson introduces her to Zane Hollander, suddenly she's up close and personal with the world's sexiest surf star. But what can a great-looking, experienced athlete possibly see in a klutzy out-of-towner who’s never set foot in the ocean? Zane sees Sophie as the perfect girl to help him reform his image and he can't resist her as she blooms under the beachy sun. But Zane knows he'll just break her heart, because nothing's more important to him than following the tide.

A temporary agreement neither could keep…

Surfer Zane Hollander has always been lucky with the ladies. But if he’s to land a new sponsor, Zane needs to clean up his act, and fast. He might not have anything in common with brainy event planner Sophie Birch, but she’s sweet and respectable—exactly what he needs.

Sophie’s never set foot on a beach, let alone left her hometown…until now. What does a sex-on-a-surfboard celebrity like Zane see in a klutzy bookworm like her? Oh, right. Nothing. Their relationship is purely fictional. And Zane is supposed to be on his best behavior. Sigh.

But the more Sophie blossoms under the beachy sun, the more Zane fears he’ll just break her heart. And this time, he’s found a heart he isn’t willing to break…

4 - Live a little... Stars!

The first book in the Kisses in the Sand series offers up a perfect balance of romance between a couple that on the surface couldn’t be more different.

I loved introverted Sophie and extrovert Zane, together they seemed to push the other to move from their comfort zones ...more

By Samanthe August 04, 2014

Keeping Mr. Right Now is an absolute keeper!

I loved everything about this story. The heroine, Sophie, is smart, slightly awkward, and, like a lot of women, doesn’t see anything extraordinary when she looks in the mirror. UN-like a lot of “ugly duckling” stories, she’s not maddeningly self-critical— ...more

By Bette August 08, 2014

Oh how I LOVED this book! Such incredible characters and a story that moves along at a great pace! Zane is outgoing and charismatic but slightly broken, Sophie is shy and reserved but trying desperately to put herself out there. Together they are magic! Plan your day to read this book because once y ...more

By Elaine August 12, 2016

Another delightful read from this talented author! I love how she develops her characters, making them feel like someone you know well and can relate to. In this case the heroine is Sophie Birch who has left her studies into how the brain works to become an event organiser. She wasn’t supposed to be ...more

Zane is a superstar in the surfing world, hot and popular. When he gets to be an ambassador to the largest non profit organization, he needs immediately to change his bad boy image. So what a better idea to have the perfect shy girl at his side?
When Zane meets Sophie, he sees a woman the opposite of ...more

I just had the pleasure of following along as something magical happened in the small beach community of White Strand Cove. The Strand is one of those places that makes you feel at home. It's my perfect image of a small beachfront community. A place where the community doesn't just look out for one ...more

What a beautifully sweet story! Sophie and Zane (whose name I love) were such a refreshing couple. I loved the bond they built and getting to know each other. There were some cute little parts that had me smiling. There were funny phrases where you could see Sophie saying/thinking things, like reall ...more

By Jessica March 16, 2015

Well that just warmed my heart and made me feel all kinds of good inside. Talk about opposites attract! SO the writing was really well done. I read the book in just one afternoon. That should tell you something. As characters in a book go, I think both Zane & Sophie were people you can relate to. AN ...more

The words I would use to describe this book was fun, sweet, sexy and romantic. I loved really loved this book. I loved the characters.

I’ve been Zaned and you will too by the end of this book. This is yet another book by this author that I loved and another book boyfriend to add to my crush list. Zane is totally chocka and swoon worthy.

This book was so much fun to read. It grabbed me from the first page and left me with a big fat s ...more

By Dianne August 11, 2014

What do you consider your greatest asset? Sophie believes it is her brains, because she is not a beach bunny, not a snow bunny, not the girl that guys fall all over. Taking a job to prove her worth as an event coordinator, becomes more than a mental test for Sophie as she meets the hot and handsome, ...more

The characters, the setting, the plot…it was all fantastic! Keeping Mr. Right Now is the perfect romant ...more

By Linda August 20, 2014

My thoughts:

Zane Hollander stood in profile a few feet away. Sophie's breath caught. Up close, he looked like he'd been carved from the most glorious, most gorgeous stone on the planet. His blond hair was straight, on the longer side and sticking up in GQ messiness. Square jaw, high cheekbones, perf ...more

By Erica August 22, 2014

I have totally been Zaned! And I bet you will be too! Keeping Mr. Right Now by Robin Bielman was beyond adorable and I totally loved it!

Zane and Sophie rock, as do all the secondary characters! They all made this story. I fell for the characters right away, and was sad to see the book end.

By Shari August 17, 2014

I could not put this book down, I was Zaned. Loved the chemistry between these two. Zane, surfer dude who felt like he could never please his family and Sophie, brainiac who was not very outgoing. Two opposites, that find them selves together to help Zane move forward in his career. A fake relation ...more

By Maggie August 18, 2014

Super-sexy surfer hero? Check. Adorable heroine? Check. Chemistry, dreamy setting, happy ending? Check, check, check. I am a big fan of Robin Bielman and this book is my favorite of hers so far. A little sexy, a lot sweet, I enjoyed turning the pages and falling in love right alongside Zane and Soph ...more

Oh my god. I really love this series and Robin Bielman. A long, long time ago, I read the Best Friend Bargain and I absolutely loved it.

By Meagan August 18, 2014

I really loved this book. It was a nice weekend romantic read and kept me interested the entire time, you just can't help but fall in love with the characters.
