Sex, lies and sensibility / Nikki Payne.

Payne, Nikki, 1982- (author.).


"Two sisters roll up their sleeves to run a dilapidated beach-town inn but must learn to work with the current tenants in this deliciously spicy reimagining of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility by Nikki Payne. Nora needs a reinvention fast. But where can you go when the entire internet knows your face? (And ass... but Nora tries not to talk about that.) After discovering at her father's funeral that she and her sister, Yanne, have lived their entire lives as his secret second family, everything they hadis gone. Well, there is one thing left-a dilapidated beach house on its way to foreclosure in Maine. All Nora has to do is pay back the foreclosure loan in nine months and she can start over. She needs the do-over after her ex leaked their sex tape and Nora's O-face became the internet's favorite meme. She decamps for coastal Maine with her sister, but they haven't even knocked the traveling dust off last season's designer boots when the first problem pops up: a squatter who has claimed their property ashis own-and is hotter than the local lobster boil. From the moment Ennis "Bear" Freeman sees these two city sisters, he knows they won't last here. But that doesn't mean he can't fix his struggling ecotourism business with the money they supply to revampthe inn. As an Indigenous person native to Maine, Ennis has every reason not to trust another outsider claiming land they have no rights to. He has his own secrets, ones that threaten to destroy his business and his reputation. But as they work side by side, he's afraid Nora may be the key to more than just his financial happiness. His best course of action? Stay away. But that's easier said than done..."-- Provided by publisher.
