So lie back on your sun lounger and get comfortable, because this summer fling is going to be a sizzler!

My review:

I have to say, I LOVED LOVED LOVED the way this book started and that’s really important for me when I start the book. The beginning has to be catchy and take me in immediately, Aimee did a great job here. Alexa finds herself and Enrique Castillos penthouse and this just in her underwear, or should I say her undergarments, as Ric says so nicely. That is where their story begins.
Instead of enjoying her holidays with her two friends, she has to help Ric organize a ball and she has to stay longer.

Their attraction was obvious from the start, but of them didn’t want anything to happen. There was something up in the air all the time, but it took quite a while till something finally does happen between them. The seem to hate each other, but isn’t that the first sign for love anyway?
They both don’t want a serious relationship anyway, Ric doesn’t even know what love is.

Ric has a dark past and he’s not really proud of it, it takes him a while to trust Alexa and tell her everything. The atmosphere between them changes all the time, they enjoy their time together, but then they don’t talk for a week.
There were some passionate and flirty scenes, which were a pleasant change to their teasing and fighting. In some scenes the connecting thread was missing for me though and more paragraphs would have made the reading more pleasant, especially when there was a jump in time.

When Alexa tells him about her job, he interprets in the complete wrong way and doesn’t want to see her anymore. This just when they finally seemed to realise what they feel for each other.
All the other saw their feelings towards each other first and help to solve this misunderstanding. I just wished for them to find a way to be together and admit their feelings…

There were some really sweet scenes in this book and it again shows that finding the right person might change everything!!!


My possible cast:

Alexa: Hayley Wheeler

Ric: Iker Casillas
