A summer fling is an ideal cure for a broken heart. But when it’s with your best friend, things get complicated.

When Adam is dumped by his boyfriend, a week away at a beach resort seems like a great opportunity to get over his ex. Sun, sea, and no-strings sex will be just the boost he needs to move on with his life.

Adam’s best friend, Finn, agrees to accompany him at short notice. Finn’s had a crush on Adam for years, but is determined to put his feelings aside and be the perfect wingman in Adam’s time of crisis.

A spontaneous threesome with another guy forces Adam and Finn to confront their attraction to each other. Having a holiday fling together wasn’t part of the plan, and as their trip heats up, they soon realise that one night of fun won’t be enough for either of them.

The passion might be scorching, but their hearts and friendship are on the line. If their romance is going to survive the flight home, they have to be honest about what they want.









Summer Heat was a light and fairly easy read.  I thought we get some drama after I read the blurb but there was no angst and very little drama. The 2 main characters, Finn and Adam are sexy, caring, sweet and full of life.
Adam and Finn have been good friends for a couple of years and their friendship has remained in that zone until Adam breaks with the douche canoe.  You get the feeling that Finn has never taking things further because Adam was in a very committed long term relationship.  I really enjoyed Adam’s fun loving nature.  Despite getting his heart broken he handled things with dignity and went on a gay retreat with Finn.
Adam and Finn are great friends, they support each other but on this getaway they both experience feelings they’ve never acted on.  I loved Finn’s  feelings of jealousy as well as Adams bluntness.  One  extremely hot and steamy threesome turns Adam and Finns friendship into more.
Omg, the sex scenes in this book was off the chart but I really enjoyed the stolen moments between Adam and Finn.  Their walks on the beach, their boat rides and their new found relationship.  We see why their friendship turned into much more.   This wasn’t a live in the moment fling, their loyalty and love for each other blossoms.  I got to know Adam and Finns characters and I really connected with them.  If you love a friends to lovers romance that’s light on the angst than this is the book for you.
