I really should have read this book by the beach! Look at that summery cover and all those vibrant colors! Sinfully Summer is one of those books that should come with a cocktail and lots of sun. Unfortunately the weather out here is crazy and been raining and grey mostly, however Aimee managed to transport me to sunny Marbella and its beautiful beaches.
This is a rather short, but very much sweet read. It’s one of those you’ll finish in one sitting, cover to cover, maybe even on your lunch breaks. It follows the story of Alexa, a bit of a spoilt, wild party-girl who’s on a vacation with her girls. Under very strange and embarrassing conditions, she meets Ric the hotel owner, an up tight businessman who asks (or shall I say forces) her to help him out organize a charity ball.
The writing is easy to follow and I really liked the immediate chemistry between Alexa and Ric, however there were few things that bothered me. As much as I tried to, I couldn’t relate to Alexa and despite the fact she’s trying to act mature I still thought she’s very spoilt. I also didn’t like the way Ric is blackmailing her to help him out.
However, Sinfully Summer is definitely a nice beach read, perfect to get your mind off serious matters and every day problems. I wish it was a bit longer though, because maybe I’d got to see more of Alexa’s character and like her more. I loved the setting and think I should definitely re-read it for my summer holidays.
If you’re looking for an easy, romance read and a short getaway from all your daily troubles, look no further. I’m sure you’d love to visit Marbella, just make sure you don’t forget getting a nice cold drink.
My rating: 3/5
Aimée writes steamy, contemporary romance for the 21st century woman who enjoys the 21st century alpha male. She’s addicted to reading, shopping and can’t go a day without music. When she’s not writing you can find her traipsing up the Ochils (weather permitting of course) or procrastinating on Facebook and Twitter.
