When small-town girl Emma LaRue won a vacation to an exclusive tropical island, a last minute cancellation meant she would be going by herself. Shy and studious, she never had time to fall in love, and often wondered if she was just meant to be alone. However, that all changed when a handsome stranger literally walked into her life while on the beach and sparks begin to fly.
New York's most eligible billionaire bachelor Jack Saunders thought this vacation would be the perfect escape, one last hurrah, before taking full control of his father's company. When an innocent Emma didn't recognize him, he figured that he might get a chance to have a vacation from being rich. He didn't tell her about the cars, the yacht, or the penthouse. All he did was let her fall in love with him.
Soon, Jack found that he was the one falling in love with Emma. When they enjoy a fantasy marriage ceremony on the beach, they thought it was a bit of harmless fun before returning to their normal lives. A bittersweet goodbye was supposed to be the end of their perfect vacation romance, but when photos of the ceremony were leaked to the press, everything changed.
Feeling lied to and thrust into a world of wealth and privilege, Emma must choose between following her dreams or following her heart. Will she be content at being nothing more than the billionaire's wife, or will she return to her normal life with only memories of saltwater kisses?

Narrator Without an Ounce of Emotion
What disappointed you about Saltwater Kisses?
The characters were flat and overly amenable and so distant from one another that their one and only disagreement was "resolved" without any discussion whatsoever. It is nice to have a sweet love story, but once the couple left the vacation resort, the story of them as a couple was a non-item.
What was most disappointing about Krista Lakes’s story?
The two characters didn't hash out their differences once they actually had a difference or a misunderstanding. The Hero and Heroine were given a story while one vacation and getting to know one another, then the story fell flat.
What didn’t you like about Alicia Harris’s performance?
While Miss Harris did not read in a monotone voice, she also failed to put any emotion in the characters based on what was happening in the scene. The sexy scenes were read with the same voice as the scene when the two were harassed by paparazzi in the restaurant as the scene in which his parent meet with Emma regarding a separation!! The reader did not change her voice between characters nor did she put sultry or anger or worry or elation in her voice when she was reading dialogue with these emotions. The other distracting element is that in the recording, there is a slight white or snow noise in the background as Miss Harris reads. When she gets to the end of a sentence, the white noise faded, was gone, then returned with the next sentence. It gave me the impression that each sentence was recorded separately and then laid on the track in line.
What character would you cut from Saltwater Kisses?
I wouldn't cut any characters, just have the H and h have more conversation to make the "forgiveness" more believable.
Any additional comments?
I am very disappointed with this recording and disappointed that I purchased Rainwater Kisses, read by the same narrator. Even though the books were at a nicely reduced price or $1.99, I would not recommend these audio books to anyone. The reader sounds very inexperienced and stilted.
