Overview

Lazy days . . . steamy nights . . . and sweltering guys with rippling muscles doing what they do best . . .



Luscious by Lori Foster



Bethany Churchill just quit her lousy job, dumped her lousy boyfriend and moved into a new apartment. She's not looking for love, but her hot new landlord is determined to change her mind. SWAT officer Lucius Ryder--known to the women in the building as "Luscious," much to his chagrin--is one sexy lawman, and before long Bethany is tempted to find out if he's really as delicious as his nickname. . .




It's About Time by Erin McCarthy



County prosecutor Trish Jones has had it with smooth-talking, under-performing suits. And though she's never had a thing for big, brawny guys, one look at Caleb Vancouver's bulges makes her think she might have been missing out. One Harley ride later they're back at her place, and she realizes that she has been missing out . . . on quite a lot . . .




Wish You Were Here by Amy Garvey



Photographer Mackenzie Pruitt knows exactly what she wants her future to look like, and this summer that means renovating a dilapidated shed into a studio. But when hunky carpenter Leo Dawson shows up, she'd much rather have his capable hands on her than on a hammer. He's not the kind of guy she always thought she'd fall for, but when he touches her, she can't imagine wanting anyone else . . .

I read "Bad Boys of Summer" today. This is three short romance stories in one book.The first story is "Luscious" by Lori Foster (a new to me author). "Luscious" is about a sexy SWAT officer named Lucius Ryder. Besides being a SWAT officer, Lucius is also a landlord- a landlord with a building full of women whom ogle and drool over his hotness. The women call Officer Ryder "Luscious Ride", but he doesn't mind. He likes women, all women and is a sucker for women in trouble- hence why his apartment building is full of single women and no men. One of the women is Marci, a fruitcake who "talks" to dogs. Think dog whisperer. Anyway, Marci has an identical twin named Bethany whom Luscious...er Lucius is hot for. Bethany is hot for him too, but she's been burned with being second choice to her sister and isn't sure that this is a repeat situation. Of course these two get together have some hot sex and a happy ending. Cute, short romance story- but has some dorky dialogue.The second story is "It's About Time" by Erin McCarthy. This story is about an independent, knows what she wants lawyer Trish Jones and super smokin' hot guy named Caleb Vancouver- full of bulging muscles and pent up sexual frustration. He's been celibate for two years- since his divorce. Trish meets Caleb getting foxed at a bar after she's been stood up. She takes pity on him and brings him home - she doesn't want him driving his Harley after he's been drinking. Well, he's not so far gone as to not notice or want the sexy lawyer, but Trish doesn't want him to regret anything so they share a bed (he's too large for her couch) but no sex that night. In the morning Trish is woken up by an erotic dream that leaves her having orgasms in her sleep only to wake up to Caleb staring at her thinking she had a nightmare. Is Trish embarrassed? Heck no! She tells him she was having a sex dream about him, he gets all turned on and they go at it. Only trouble is Caleb has no condoms- but not to worry! Trish went to a naughty adult toy party recently and had a box of bright hot PINK condoms. This scene is hilarious! Caleb is not too thrilled to have to put on a pink condom, but his sex drive overcomes his protests and he goes for it. Cute sexy story, I liked it.The final story in the book is "Wish You Were Here" by Amy Garvey. This story is about Mackenzie Pruitt, a photographer who inherits a run down beach house. The property has a shed on it and Mackenzie has decided she wants that to be her studio, but it needs work badly. So she hires Leo Dawson- an extremely hot sexy guy to get the job done. The attraction is instant, but Leo has a secret and he's determined not to let Mackenzie get any photos of him. I love the description of him from Mackenzie's eyes:"In his jeans and T-shirt, his sunglasses dangling from one hand, he didn't look like a contractor at all. He looked like the kind of guy who roared up on a motorcycle and made your mother cringe. He looked...dangerous. A little bit bad. But a whole lot delicious."Sounds perfectly yummy to me! These two don't stay away from each other for long, they go full on with each other with Mackenzie giving it her all and Leo keeping his secret or I should say secrets as there are a few but they all go together. One of the secrets is, he's a recovering alcoholic and drug user. He's clean now, but in years past he didn't say 'no' to anything and he's ashamed of it now. He doesn't think he deserves anyone good or a positive future because of the mistakes of his past. Mackenzie figures it all out and Leo is shocked to find out she is not ashamed of him and still wants him. They fall in love and we are to believe live happily ever after. Ahhh... I liked it!I enjoyed these three short stories, they were a quick fun read and it was so nice reading about the heat of summer during this frigid winter!

Sorry all three stories were boring...the men really didn't appear to be the "bad boys of summer".

The first 2 stories were sexy & hot. However, the last one was a little slow where it had me skipping most of it.
