For a Good Time Call by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Ever see For a good time call scribbled on the bathroom wall of a bar? Sure you have. Ever wonder what would happen if you had a few too many drinks and actually called the number? Well now you don’t have to wonder anymore, because I’ll tell you… It blows up in your face when you suddenly realize who Mr. Good Time is.

Eternal Sunshine by L.J. Shen

Adam Mackay is my brother’s best friend, turned Hollywood heartthrob, who is now my brand new, infuriating boss.

Sounds complicated? You have no idea…

Stay Right Here with Me by Willow Winters

I can’t tell you how many mistakes I’ve made sitting in this very spot in this small town bar. Watching the iron doors swing closed as the broad-shouldered man who just walked in sits across from me, I already know he’s on that list of, “I shouldn’t have done that…”

Damsel Dude in Distress by Helena Hunting

I thought I was helping a damsel in distress. Turns out my damsel was actually a hot dude with some bad luck. It started with a broken down car and ended with a gross motel, an indoor campout and a set of Kama Sutra sheets.

The Beach R.S. Grey

I’m not supposed to be on vacation with my best friend’s older brother. I’ve wanted him for so long, and now we’re unexpectedly alone in a tropical paradise. Naturally, I packed a lot of bikinis, but I should have brought armor if I want to have any hope of surviving my week away with Noah Martin…or should I say, Dr. Martin.

Lucky Shot by Sarina Bowen

Rookie sports agent Bess Beringer gets a real education on the night of her first glitzy New York business dinner. But the things she learns have nothing to do with roster rules or contract negotiation. Luckily, rookie hockey player Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz is a pro-level teacher…

Summer Fling: A Sexy Summer Anthology is almost the perfect summer read. It features six short stories by various authors. For me, these stories were either a hit or a complete miss.

For a Good Time Call by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward – 5 Stars
For a Good Time Call is easily my favourite story of the bunch. It was laugh out loud funny and the perfect set up for a full length novel. What else can you expect from Keeland and Ward?

Eternal Sunshine by L.J. Shen – 3 Stars
Eternal Sunshine started out really good, but resolved quickly with very little tension. I also wasn’t the biggest fan of the dialogue.

Stay Right Here With Me by Willow Winters – 2 Stars
Stay Right Here was boring and too short. I didn’t like the characters or setting.

Damsel Dude in Distress by Helena Hunting – 5 Stars
This story takes place in the Shacking Up universe though it can be read a standalone. It was a quick read that didn’t feel too long or short. It was fun and sexy. I would also have liked for this to be a full length novel.

The Beach by R.S. Grey – 5 stars
The Beach was a fun and sexy vacation romance. The chemistry between the main characters coupled with the setting makes The Beach the perfect read to curl up outside with under the sun. I’ll definitely be reading g more R.S. Grey!

Lucky Shot by Sarina Bowen – 2 stars
Lucky Shot is a too quick hockey romance that comes off as awkward.

Overall, I enjoyed my time with Summer Fling. I read one story a day to prolong it for as long as possible. I’m happy to have discovered a new author that I can’t wait to read more of her work.
