ARC Review: Summer Heat by Jay Northcote

Summer Heat
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.

Todd's rating:

Steamy. Definitely steamy.

There are books that you read for lots of plot twists and dramatics, but this wasn't one of those.

The premise is pretty simple.

1.) Best friends go on a summer holiday, after one friend is dumped by his long-term boyfriend for a different, younger dick.

2.) Sex and feeling happen. Lots of sex. Frequent sex. Flip-floppy sex.

3.) Both guys waffle over, "What happens to our friendship now?"

4.) They get over those worries and become boyfriends.

This story was fun and flirty, along with all of the sex, but my only niggle was that the MC's voices weren't overly distinct. I was constantly having to go back to the chapter headings to see if the "I" and "me" on-page was Adam or Finn.

Other than a couple of confrontation scenes between Adam and his selfish, cheater of a dick-hole ex-boyfriend, the book is entirely, blessedly angst free.

In my view, the story ends with the strong beginnings of an HEA, as the guys are insanely compatible and had already known one another for years and years.

So if you're looking for a light summer read with lots of heat, in the shower, in bed, in the club, on the beach, up against a door, then this one would probably be a good choice for you.

Overall, I'd rate this one at around 3.5 stars.
