Wade Marshall, super producer to one of hip hop’s brightest stars, was supposed to spend the summer on Black Diamond getting away from the rush of Brooklyn, ridding himself of the distractions that had been impacting his work so he can do what he does best – make beats. But the day he meets Ameenah, he becomes consumed by an entirely different and more attractive distraction–his bold, beautiful, sexy neighbor with the “glorious hips” and a penchant for ice cream.
Ameenah Porter, daughter of successful New York restaurateurs, moves to the beach town of Black Diamond to fulfill her dream of opening a smoothie shop. She doesn’t need the distraction of a new man but the tall, dark and handsome Wade, who’s staying in the giant sized home at the end of her block, is irresistible.
Ameenah’s days at Tikis & Cream are spent cooling off her customers with her gourmet smoothie blends. Her nights on the shores of Black Diamond Bay are enchanting and romantic, and soon Wade and Ameenah find themselves in the middle of a Beach Thing… a fun, meaningless tryst that will end when the summer is over.
Or will it?
Wade is returning to Brooklyn at the end of the summer. Ameenah lives on Black Diamond. Neither want this Beach Thing to end… so is this fling really a fling or is it the beginning of something real… and will they realize it in time?
