An old, smoldering passion turns into a Hot Summer Fling
Home from college on summer break, Lily Rios is bored to tears after only a week. Just when she’s ready to run back to school early, she reunites with Jack Turner, the one who got away.
Back in high school, Lily had let others convince her Jack wasn’t the “right” kind of guy: no money, no status and no power. Now that she’s grown up and calls her own shots, she discovers just how very right Jack can be — he knows where her lust switch is, and knows how to use it.
Their hot, steamy trysts give her mind and body satisfaction she never imagined until startling accusations threaten to tear the lovers apart a second time.
It really wasn’t high school when Jack got away…it was in 8th grade at a mutual friends’ birthday party and they were playing 15 minutes in heaven. Jack and Lily shared a fabulously wonderful kiss and Jack has fantasized about Lily ever since. He had tried to call her and talk to her after that wonderful party, but Lily’s friend Tracy told her that he wasn’t good enough for Lily and since Lily was young and impressionable she let her friend direct her life.
Here Lily is many years later and she’s very attracted to this man at her club. They end up skinny dipping together before Lily even knows his name. When she realized that it’s Jack Turner she’s more than ready to take the meeting farther. Jack puts the brakes on though because he doesn’t want a quick romp in the pool, he wants to get Lily into bed and keep her there for a darned long time.
Lily and Jack start a fling and they are together all the time. They are having a great time until Lily’s friend Tracy decides to tell Lily the truth; not only had she had sex with Jack way back when but the night of the skinny dipping she’d had sex with him as well. Lily is terribly torn between whether to believe Tracy who she’s been friends with her whole life or with Jack who she’s pretty much just met.
This was a very short story but there was a lot of information and some very hot sex packed into the pages. Lily and Jack’s relationship went from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds and didn’t stop for anything until Tracy comes along with her story. For a summer fling book this was one hot little number. Unfortunately it it’s not categorized as a romance and therefore had no HEA which is something I’m not a huge fan of. The characters made choices at the end of the book in regard to their relationship and were happy with their choices. My thoughts of how I would have liked to have seen the ending were different but it was still very cute.
If you’re looking for a quick, erotic read this would be a perfect read for you.
