Overview

I'm looking for a hero. Not.
You'd think as a new college grad I'd be looking for the perfect job and the perfect man. Well, I'm not. Summer is here and instead of plotting my future, I'm playing in the Hamptons with my two best friends. Sun and sex is all I'm looking for. Then I meet Sean Dempsey, my fantasy lifeguard in the flesh. But he is more than just a hot bod with a whistle. And after he makes a daring save, I'm thinking a hero is exactly what I've been looking for all along.

To the rescue...
By day I guard the beaches in the Hamptons, by night I've had my fair share of summer flings. Then I meet Kelsey Mitchell, a girl with eyes like the setting sun and I burn for more. Something I have no right to ask of her...forever.

Love burns hotter in the Hamptons. Come play.

This was a sweet, sexy novella. It can be read as a stand alone, but is part of three connected stories by different authors. I'd recommend reading them all to enhance the experience.

Fun, fresh, and steamy - a perfect summer read! Summer Dreaming, part of the Hot in the Hamptons series, is a must. I have been a big fan of Jennifer Probst, another author from the Hot in the Hamptons series, for a long time, and I was introduced to Liz Matis through her book in this series, Summer Dreaming. I am SO glad I was, and I will be adding Liz to my "must read" author list! Three girlfriends are hanging out the Hamptons for the summer to relax, spend time with each other, and figure some things out before they return to their normal lives. In Liz's story, Kelsey is trying to relax for the summer, help one of her best girlfriends plan her wedding, forget that her father is no longer with her, and not think about the fact that she is not sure what she is going to do now that she has graduated college. And, then she meets Sean, a life guard whose professional goals after this summer are the exact opposite of what Kelsey is looking for. As a couple, they are super sweet, sassy, and romantic. But, will that be enough. As a side note, I happen to love when different authors get together and write interconnecting stories because I often finish a book and wonder what is happening with the secondary characters. In the Hot in the Hamptons series, you are able to learn about all three girlfriends. *I was given an advanced copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

Summer dreaming is in the Hot in the Hamptons series, from Kelsey Mitchell and Sean Dempsey’s POV. Expecting to have summer fun to forget about her father passing and deciding what to do with her life, the last thing Kelsey was looking for was a relationship. She was up for a summer fling but Sean Dempsey quickly becomes more than that. Their romance is steamy beyond belief. The electricity jumps off the page. When feelings began to grow they discuss what will happen when the summer ends and have to go their separate ways but not wanted to admit they don’t want the summer to end. This novella is sweet and sexy at the same time. An ideal combination! This can be read as a standalone or apart of the trilogy Hot in the Hamptons with the stories of Kelsey’s 2 best friends Storme and Leigh.

​​​​​I loved Summer Dreaming by Liz Matis! Hot in the Hamptons is a brand new trilogy about three recent Penn State grads spending their last summer together before they embark on their post college lives. This story is about Kelsey Mitchell, a smart and hot young woman that is still unsure about her adult future. Moving back home to Georgia or studying architectural engineering in Europe, are just two options she is seriously considering. At this moment in time however, she wants to channel all her energy into a summer filled with fun, a fling, and lots more fun. Enroute to her destination, Kelsey meets townie and lifeguard Sean Dempsey, which changes her life forever. Sean is not only a hunk, he is also a hero. Over the years, he has saved many people from drowning, and at the end of this summer, he plans on putting his heroic skills to good use by serving his country in the Marines. For years he has played the field and has never felt the longing to commit to any one woman, that is until Kelsey strolls into his life. They immediately hit it off and before the summer ends their mutual lust has developed into true love. I really enjoyed this novella. It is a quick-paced story with well-defined and identifiable characters. I loved the way Ms. Matis evolved Kelsey and Sean's relationship, with kindness, passion and realism. This is a well-written book that flowed effortlessly from beginning to end. If you are looking for a contemporary romance with the perfect balance of sweetness and heat, an engaging plot, and a happily ever after that will leave a smile on your face, read this book. Complimentary copy provided.

Kelsey is spending the summer with her friends in the Hamptons before they start their post grad lives. Sean Dempsey is a local boy who is spending his last summer life guarding before enlisting. Neither is looking for love, just a summer of fun before "real life" takes over. Apron arrival Kelsey meets Sean before she even getting to her friends house. Chemistry is immediate for both of them, but Kelsey is no push over and will make Sean work for it if he wants her. One date is all it takes each is hooked but with her history and his future are they doomed before they even start? A hot summer read full of sun, fun, and romance!

Summer Dreaming is part of the Hot in the Hamptons series of seemingly perfect holiday reads. In this book we get Kelsey's story. Still mourning the death of her USM Corp father Kelsey heads off to The Hamptons for a summer of fun before she decides what to do with her life after graduating from College. Within a day she has the eye of Sean Dempsey, local townie and lifeguard - AKA The Hampton Hottie. Sean just wants a fling but pretty quickly things hot up only for their 'fling' to be thrown into disarray with Sean's admission that after the summer he is off to basic training for the Marines. Can Kelsey cope with this? Copy received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is one of three stories with linked characters written by three different authors, though each can be read as a standalone. The basic premise is that three girlfriends are spending a summer together at the Hampton's before one of them gets married. In this particular story, Kelsey is determined to live it up a little bit and when she meets lifeguard Sean, the "Hampton Hottie" a summer fling seems like just the thing to lift her spirits. I thought the two of them had a lot of chemistry together and the sex scenes between them were pretty hot! While Sean's reputation may be well deserved, he's matured and is taking his life in a new direction, though now that he's met Kelsey, the idea of leaving her behind at the end of the summer is troublesome and he's hoping she'll commit to more with him before all is said and done. It's a short read with a bit of seriousness but mostly just a sweet and sexy romance. The ending was a bit abrupt and I didn't really think with their ages it was necessary to have everything tied up so completely. But overall an enjoyable summer read! 3.5 stars.

This is one of the books in the Hot in the Hamptons novella trilogy that chronicles the last summer three newly graduated friends share before starting their post college lives. Kelsey isn't sure what's next for her. Her plans for the summer are sun, fun, and relaxation before she has to make any big decisions or try to figure out how to finance her next step. Never does she expect to meet someone like Sean Dempsey. Local boy, lifeguard, hot as hell but he turns out to be so much more. After watching her mother suffer during her father's deployments and ultimately his death, she's vowed never to get involved in a military man. At first glance, Sean is sure Kelsey is just like all the other rich summer girls. He couldn't have been more wrong. She's sexy, beautiful, kind, and deserving of so much more than he can give. He knows he needs to tell her he's leaving at the end of the summer. What will she do when she finds out he has enlisted in the Marines? This is an excellent sexy read with characters that have such chemistry it jumps from the pages. It's definitely a book I highly recommend.

I have to admit this is the first book I have read of hers. I loved it. I just love how she made the characters seem more real. And the situations are real to some who have actually gone through it. Kelsey whom just graduated from college drives down to the Hamptons to her best friends home. She is indecisive on what to do now that she has graduated college. While hanging out in the Hamptons with her best friends she hope she can figure it out. What she didn't know was, was the fact she was going to meet Sean. Whom just so happens to be a lifeguard. Can her past and his future career keep them apart? I guess you will have to read Summer Dreaming to find out. I loved Summer Dreaming. What made it even better is, is the fact that you can read it as a stand alone. You don't have to follow it in order.

Oh wow!!! Didn't know what to expect from Liz Matis but honey did you deliver!! Fresh from graduation and trying to figure out life (and how to fund it) Kelsey decides that she will just put life on the back burner and enjoy summer. Sean, tried of all the rich stuck up girls (and heartbroken) that the Hamptons brings wasn't looking for anyone. But as we have it fate would intervene. The first initial meeting was funny to me. I felt for Kelsey on her emotional a issues and how Sean seem to tie into it. They decide to make it a summer fling......but feelings don't always go along with our plans. I loved getting to know the characters. I loved the story, the humor, the emotion, the steamy. I hope we get to see where life takes these two. Highly recommend
