I find the lighting on the second and third shots much too harsh, probably quite overlit to my tastes too. It's not a massive fault on your part - it's partly that her body is absolutely rock-hard. You can see she works hard to keep fit, but the lighting adds to that sense that she'd be hard-to-the-touch, doesn't leave her looking at all feminine IMO (the plastic boobs don't help).
The other thing that jumps out at me, is in the bikini shot it looks like her head is tucked into her armpit, and as such is heavily shaded - I know what you were going for but probably just pulled the shutter button a fraction too early (before her head started to move forward again...).
On the other hand, I really like the first shot - the natural lighting works brilliantly to create a zig-zagged splash of light over her (from the hat down over her 'curves'). It's very inticing, and the sense of implied (sexual) confidence actually makes it seem more 'risque' than the bikini/sheer shots.
I wonder have you considered doing some semi-silhouette shots when you're shooting? I think they would've worked really well with this model - It's when the hard body comes into its own IMO, as it's much nicer to look at outlined smooth curves than cellulite and fat rolls...
Anyway - as I always stress - I'm no pro, and have bugger-all experience with shooting glamour and nudes, but I am a bit of a voyuer, so I've based my thoughts on that!
