Cover: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design

Length: 47,000 words approx.


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.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Summer Heat is a new standalone contemporary romance. 

What happens when two best mates, both finally single at the same time, end up going to a gay resort for a much needed holiday? They finally let themselves give into their mutual attraction and realize that they really are meant to be more than friends. 

Adam is unceremoniously dumped by his boyfriend and ends up crashing at his best mate, Finn's flat. Realizing he's got tickets for him and the ex at an exclusive gay resort on the beach, he asks Finn if he'd like to come along instead. So the boys eagerly pack up their swim trunks, extra condoms, and lube and head off for what they hope is a good time with lots of hot men to meet. Of course it's not that easy because once they get to the resort and have the prospect for hooking up with others then they both start realizing this isn't what they want. Things heat up between Adam and Finn after one night with a cute younger guy ends up in a hot threesome. That threesome opens up all sorts of feelings between these two. 

Summer Heat is a perfect read for this time of year. Low angst, with hot smexy men giving into long-hidden feelings for each other is what I call a good beach read. Well really it's a good anytime you need a hot, sexy but FUN book to read. I adored Finn and his unrequited attraction for his best mate, Adam. I also loved that Adam was pretty clueless about how sexy he was, and how attracted he was to Finn. Let's face it...these boys were clueless to the fact that the other was attracted to them until it was tossed in their face, literally. 

Overall this was just a well-written, sexy read with two super engaging characters that you're going to cheer on throughout the story. I highly recommend Summer Heat.
