Armed with a degree from Oxford that she doesn’t have a clue what to do with, Ciara Bree convinces her two best friends, Elle and Gem to spend their first summer of freedom backpacking across the globe. Now it’s time to shop, sunbathe, think about boys for a change, and party hard..
First stop: LA!
The girls hit Tinseltown for a few days of shopping, star spotting, and even a movie premiere!
But their plan to sneak into an exclusive celeb party in West Hollywood backfires. Elle’s gorgeous older cousin, Zack, is called to the rescue and despite knowing she should stay away, Ciara just can’t seem to resist him.
The ideal summer treat for those relaxing days soaking up the sun!
In the first part of the ‘Summer Flings’ series, we find ourselves whisked away to Tinseltown (LA) with the three friends who met at university in Oxford.
Ciara, Elle, and Gem are embarking on a summer of fun and frolics before they head home to join the adult world and see what life after university has in store for them.
I found this to be an immensely enjoyable and enticing read, I don’t want to go into the story too much because it is a short story, but what I will say is that Aimee Duffy has left me eager for more and I can’t wait to devour the rest of the series,
The characters are a great mix, Ciara may have had a different upbringing to Elle and Gem but it’s evident that the one thing they all have in common is how much they care about each other.
I have to admit though, as much as I loved reading about the girls I did end up in lust with Zack and he soon became my favourite character *crosses fingers that he will gatecrash the trip*
Whisk yourself away on your lunch break, escape the daily commute and allow your imagination to take you away for a Summer Fling!
