Summer Fling is a romance anthology with five sizzling short stories from five great authors!

Included in the anthology are:

The Promise of Tomorrow by J. S. Cooper (New Adult Contemporary Romance)
Lucy and Nick were two kids from opposite sides of the tracks. They became best friends and lovers and promised that nothing would ever break them up. But sometimes promises don't always last, or do they?

Love Across the Atlantic by Jessica Wood (New Adult Contemporary Romance)
Just a few days before Alex left for London to study abroad for the summer, she meets and falls for Nathan—the overly-confident, yet endearing guy that every other girl seems to want. Will the long distance ruin Alex’s chances of a relationship with Nathan, or will Alex and Nathan develop a blossoming love across the Atlantic.

Confessions of an Online Dater by Chloe Harrison (Chick Lit)
As part of a bet, Anna spends her summer going on countless dates to prove that there are no dateable guys online. After 39 disastrous dates with guys who have cat obsessions, performance issues, and facial hair issues, she starts to call these guys, The Undateables, and believes that she will win the bet. Then she meets Jack, who seems at first to be another Undateable. But will Anna’s date with Jack be another disaster, or will Jack be the one to cause Anna to lose the bet?

Summer Loving by Helen Cooper (Erotic Romance)
Jess is devastated when her boyfriend Zak dumps her right before her summer vacation with her best friends. She decides that the best way to get even is to have a one-night stand, only she may have picked the one man, that could make her life even more uncomfortable.

We Meet Again by Suzi Case (Chick Lit)
Gemma goes from odd job to odd job hoping to make ends meet. She struggles to keep her cool as the same obnoxious and handsome man keeps showing up as she fails each job disastrously.

    Five amazing stories from five amazing authors!!! I loved each story. Every story is different, you will fall in love with the characters and in the end you will want more of the story. So I'm really hoping there will be more!!!

    Confessions of an online Dater: So funny, I love the bet and the red flags. I love Push-ups too :)
    We meet again: friggen HILARIOUS!!! The odd jobs I was laughing so hard I almost peed my pants
    Summer lovin: I loved how it was a girls get way...I don't want to put a spoiler... I had a feel who Jack was going to be. I'd love to see Zak's face if he found out.
    Promise of tomorrow: My heart broke a little, it's a cute love story
    Love across the Atlantic: I wanted to slap Nathan... I clearly got over it and loved him again

    I didn't want any of these stories to end and any of them could be made into longer stories, so I'll keep my figure crossed that more will come. Great job ladies!!

    Summer fling is a refreshing anthology comprised of 5 novellas that explore rekindled love, heartbreak, unexpected new love and passion. The stories are concise and fulfilling; if only at times you wish they would simply not end. This little anthology was full of surprising and impactful stories.

    J.S. Cooper’s The Promise of Tomorrow, was an unexpected and endearing tale that tugs at the heart strings and explores some heavy issues. In contrast Jessica Wood’s Love Across the Atlantic was a gorgeous, addictive, New Adult tale of love from a distance and college life. Confessions of an Online Dater by Chloe Harrison, was a hilarious tale of the unexpectedness that can ensue from online dating adventures, while Summer Loving by Helen Cooper was a steamy tale of a heart broken young woman who discovers the perks of hedonism. We Meet Again by Suzi Case is the final story in the anthology. This was another hilarious tale, detailing a young woman’s struggles with employment in the tough economy and how it leads to the unexpected encounters with a quite persistent and attractive individual.

    What I truly adored about this anthology was the contrasting array of genres it contained. There is New Adult, Chick Lit and Erotic Romance. It was a refreshing bundle of a read that will no doubt leave you craving to read more. In all honesty, Summer Fling did leave me feeling quite bereft and not ready at all for each story to end.

    I highly recommend this book as the perfect summer read nonetheless. It is light and provides the ultimate escapism for its duration. This is a book that you could quite happily devour in one sitting.

    4 Stars

    This was a fantastic collection of five romantic short stories.

    This was a fantastic collection of five romantic short stories. Very well written and left me wanting more, to find out what happens next.

    "The Promise of Tomorrow" by J.S. Cooper
    Lucy met Nick in high school and were definitely two different people from different sides of the track. However, they dated and fell in love. During college and because of a misunderstanding, they broke up and drifted apart. Two years later, they run into each other on the streets of New York and rediscover their feelings for one another.
    I loved Lucy and Nick's story! It just comes to show that no matter where you're from, what life throws between you, or how much time has passed, true love conquers all. <3

    "Across the Atlantic" by Jessica Wood
    Alex met Nathan at a frat party a few days before she was due to leave for London for a summer abroad program. During their time apart, they kept in contact through emails and long-distance phone calls. However, as time passes, the emails and calls before more infrequent and Alex begins to doubt Nathan's feelings for her. In the end, Nathan proves himself with a surprise.
    Alex and Nathan's story was so cute. I just wish there was a little more. I'd like to see what happens after Alex returns from London. :)

    "Confessions of an Online Dater" by Chloe Harrison
    Anna made a bet with her friend that there are no decent guys on online dating websites. Two weeks before the deadline, she meets Jack and admits she may have been wrong.
    Anna and Jack's story has such huge potential. I felt like the story was cut short and was definitely left with wanting more. Most of the story was spent describing Anna's disastrous dates, which was funny. But Jack barely made his appearance and the story ended. Hopefully their story continues somewhere in the future. :)

    "Summer Loving" by Helen Cooper
    Jess was recently dumped by her boyfriend the day before their one year anniversary. To get over her heartache, she and two friends went to Barbados to take on a different persona and to let loose. She approaches a stranger, Jack, at the bar with the intentions of a one-night stand. And things got really hot!
    Who could not relate to Jess's story? The story definitely heated up between Jess and Jack. The twist at the end caught me by surprise. And I wish there was more, to see if their relationship evolved into something more. :)

    "We Meet Again" by Suzi Case
    Due to the stock market crash, Gemma was unemployed and was stuck with odd-end jobs. All of which, she was not suited for. And every time she was at her worse, handsome Jake would show up. He would both excite and aggravate her. In the end, one of her dreams came true.
    Gemma and Jake's story was also very cute. They kept bantering back and forth, but I could definitely feel the sexual tension between them. I was happy that Gemma found one of her happy endings, because up until the end, her life (job-wise) kept getting worse. She may not have found the perfect job yet, but she had Jake. <3

    Great set of five stories that left me wanting a bit more. I found myself wishing there was an epilogue just so I could get a bit more from this cast of characters. Each story offered something different, but I was drawn in to each of them. I was instantly drawn in by the first story, The Promise of Tomorrow. Then you get hit with Love Across the Atlantic and it's one of those where you with for a guy like Nathan to come into your life. Confessions of an Online Dater was amusing. The next one, Summer Loving, might be my favorite, romance and a bit of revenge all rolled into one. Finally, We Meet Again is another amusing chick lit story, probably my least favorite, but still worth the read! There's a bit more editing problems than I would generally like, but nothing that you won't be able to figure out. This is an enjoyable way to pass a couple of hours, you won't regret it. I received an ARC for an honest review.

    I received an arc copy for an honest review. I enjoyed the short five stories. These are steamy and sexy.
    These are stories to enjoy on the beach or at home while sipping a margarita. For $0.99 the stories are worth it.
    You will not be disappointed. All of the authors bring something different to the stories.
    The best thing about it is that they are all awesome authors.
    There is a little something of everything wrapped into one book.

    This was an exceptionally put together anthology but I will admit that I wanted so much more of every story that was included. 
    In J. S. Cooper's short story "The Promise of Tomorrow", Nick and Lucy's story made me want to know the rest of their story. I really enjoyed how we were taken from the present, then to the day they met, then admitted their feelings, acted on their feelings and the betrayal. My heart broke for them but I was thrilled when they reconnected. Maybe there's another series here. ;)
    Jessica Wood's "Love Across the Atlantic" showed me what I had missed in her writing since reading "A Night to Remember". Nathan and Alex's long distance separation after beginning such a fragile relationship had me on the edge of my seat. Then I was angry because of his actions and then thrilled by his actions but again I wanted more of their story.
    In "Confessions of an Online Dater" by Chloe Harrison, I laughed at Anna's actions and Valerie's persistence. It makes your wonder about those people who sign up for those sites. 
    "Summer Loving" by Helen Cooper had me immediately searching for more of her books with Jess and Jack. I could have read about them all day long and never tired of it. "We Meet Again" by Suzi Case, was just hilarious. Every time that Gemma ran into Jake, I laughed. The chemistry between the two was undeniable and I couldn't decide if one or both of them didn't want to act on it. But then everything happened at once. Maybe there should be another anthology with these same stories that continue their stories.

    Summer Fling (An Anthology of Five Sizzling Romance Short Storie

    Summer Fling (An Anthology of Five Sizzling Romance Short Stories) These were 5 great short stories. I really enjoyed the selections from all of the authors. A little bit of romance and some had a little bit of laughter. I could really see a couple of them being put into a longer storyline. Overall these stories are good for an afternoon reading when you don't really have a lot of time. I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review.

    I was given an Arc copy of this book for an honest review. If you are looking for something quick to read while sitting on the beach or by the pool. This book is what you are looking for then.

    The Promise of Tomorrow by J.S. Cooper-
    Who says opposites don't attract? Lucy fell in love with Nick not long after meeting him in high school and he fell in love with her the first time he saw her.

    They had their ups, downs and misunderstandings and they even went their separate ways. Who knew years later they would run into each other again. Glad to see everything they went through things didn't change between them.

    Love Across the Atlantic by Jessica Wood

    Alex and Nathan seem like they are a cute couple with a good story. This story was too short and I would like to have known a little bit more about them.

    Confessions of an Online Dater by Chloe Harrison

    Some of those stories of the dates that Anna went on were funny. I found myself chuckling to myself. Jack seems to be a good catch for Anna. Hopefully there will be more of their story somewhere in the future. I would like to see what happens next with them.

    Summer Loving by Helen Cooper

    Wow! Jack and Jess were hot!

    We Meet Again by Suz1 Case

    Gemma and Jake are too much. You could feel the sexual tension between the two of them. They could have a hot story.
