That was summer vacay meets long time friends to lovers meets full on smexy pornyland.
Summer Heat is the type of book that you want to read while relaxing in a hammock on the beach with a cocktail. Well, maybe a private beach because it gets hella hot and does. Not. Stop.
Adam breaks it off with his fiancé that he has been with for 5 years because the guy couldn’t keep it in his pants. Heartbroken and needing a place to stay, he heads to Finn, his best friend.
“I reeled off the address of the one place where I always knew I’d be welcome, where I knew I’d get the comfort I needed, where I would be safe to fall apart. Finn’s flat.”
Finn has been crushing on Adam for years and is all too eager to be a shoulder to cry on. Some time after the Jack Daniels and bucket of ice cream, Adam remembers the week long vacation he was supposed to take with his ex to a gay beach resort in Spain. Finn, the great friend he is, agrees to go with Adam instead.
“Sun, sea, sand, and sex.” Yes, please!
After drinks, dancing and meeting guys, Adam and Finn find themselves with Niall. Niall is a fellow resort guest and has been chatting it up with Adam. When the time comes for a hook up, Niall, the forward thinker he is comes up with a brilliant idea when saying goodnight to Finn.
Two becomes three and then Finn andAdam run away with the show. Don’t worry, Niall is properly taken care of too. But, the chemistry between Adam and Finn is realized from their first kiss all the way to orgasm. Let’s just say that at this point, I was totally rethinking my no-reading-m/m/m- books- rule. Ohhhh to be a fly on the wall…or an extra hand? Just sayin’, H.O.T.
Three then becomes two again. Finn and Adam aren’t sure how to navigate their new relationship dynamics and things become awkward. It seems that a little more alcohol and dancing will solve their woes. The rest of their vacation besides the insane number of orgasms is spent navigating how they will move forward in their friendship and/or relationship.
This book was sugary sweet with zero angst. There was a lot of sex in them pages… almost made me worry for the health of the MCs to be able to fit that many orgasms into such a short time frame. I ain’t complainin’, there’s worse ways to go. It’s the perfect read to relax after a stressful day and I think that was the intention. Sun, sea, sand and lotsa sex.
