ARC Review: Summer Heat by Jay Northcote


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.

Dani's rating:

If you're having a crap week, this book is better than Xanax at helping you cope. I'm speaking from personal experience.

Summer Heat is a very spicy and low-angst read. Scratch that. It gets my No Angst for Miles guarantee.

Two best friends, flirtatious but never lovers, go on a romantic getaway together to a gay resort in Spain. Adam had booked the holiday as a surprise for his boyfriend, Drew, but that was before Drew traded him in for a younger model.

The "Heat" in the title is not misleading. This is an insanely SEXY story! A threesome is a catalyst for Adam and Finn admitting that they want to be more than friends, with Adam suggesting they play fuck buddies for the rest of the holiday.

Neither man wants to acknowledge that this thing between them is more than a short summer fling, but the lack of communication doesn't last too long.

Drew was a complete twat and Adam and Finn had been besties for many years, but I still thought their move from friends to boyfriends was too abrupt. Even if you're in a lousy long-term relationship and you're the one who breaks it off (which was not the case with Adam), there's always a grieving stage. Adam forgets all about Drew a little too quickly. But whatever.

This is not meant to be a deep read. It's meant to be FUN & STEAMY, and it is all that with whipped cream on top.
