Leigh DeGray is looking forward to her much needed vacation and six week stay in the Hamptons with her friends before it's time to start her new job. While traveling to her vacation destination she stops at a little road side cafe for a bite to eat, and meets a older gentleman who reminds her of her grandfather, he is there to celebrate his wedding anniversary and honor a long standing tradition he had with his late wife. Leigh is so touched by his story that she offers to be his dinner companion and listen to him reminisce and share stories about his wife. But midway through dinner his grandson shows up and mistakes her for a prostitute trying to lure her way into his grandfather's good graces, so after being offended Leigh politely excuses herself and leaves, thankful that she'll never see that him again... Nick Kenzy has spent the last few years of his life dedicated to his job and pouring every part of himself into his work, only to be laid off and sent packing without so much as a severance package. Feeling completely frustrated and not sure what his next move will be he sets out to spend the summer with his grandfather in the Hamptons. On his first night out, he attends a beach house party hosted by some friends, and runs into the girl he never thought he'd see again. The question is will she give him the opportunity to apologize or will she send him packing too... This short, but oh so sweet, story captivated my attention right from the start and didn't let go until the very end, I got so involved in it that I ended up staying up well past my bed time just to finish it. I always enjoy reading a good enemies to lovers story and this one DEFINITELY hit the mark! The chemistry between Leigh & Nick was off the charts and their little encounters had me blushing a few times! Overall this was a very enjoyable read, and I think it's one you should add to the top of your Summer Reading List, it's sure to satisfy all your reading needs , and then some!

I really loved these characters. The author does a wonderful job of making them real with honest emotions. Leigh is spending summer at the beach after college graduation with her two best friends before real life hits her. She never expected to meet Nick, who suddenly finds himself at loose ends. I also really loved Nick's grandfather, Murphy. 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.

Another beautiful summer novella to enjoy! Summer Temptation, written by Wendy S. Marcus, is a delight to read, it's filled with romance and humour. I really enjoyed this short novella, it's perfect for an afternoon read! Leigh and Nick's story was so much fun to read!

This is a sweet and sexy summer romance, the story of Leigh and Nick and is part of a trio of stories, each standalone but with linked characters. There are three girlfriends who are enjoying a summer together before one of the them gets married in a few weeks. For Leigh, it's a chance for some fun before she knuckles down to her first real post college job. Nick is an out of work investment banker who is in the Hamptons to stay with his grandfather while he regroups and looks for another position. Though they get off on the wrong foot initially it's not long before they find themselves on better footing and enjoying each other's company, rather more than they expected. I enjoyed the story and there was definite chemistry between Leigh and Nick that leads to some sexy scenes. I liked how the plot developed, the glimpses of Leigh's friends who star in the other two stories in the series, and the interactions that Leigh and Nick have with Nick's grandfather who is a very sweet man. It's a great summer story, not too long, minimal angst and a lovely romance. 4 stars.

I loved this story! 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. This is Leigh and Nick's story and it is fabulous. Their initial meeting his hilarious and things can only improve from there. The last thing Leigh is looking for is a summer fling but after she shares her "secret" with Nick and he doesn't run for the hills, he seems like someone she can spend a little time with before her life really gets serious. This book is beautifully written and the characters work wonderfully together. It's a quick light read that will leave you with a smile. I highly recommend it.
