Sullivan Lake, Vermont, has plenty of attractions for movie star Ashley Carlsen—pristine nature, local color, and a handyman with a bad reputation for all the right reasons...

Ashley’s movie-star life is starting to feel like an act. She’s desperate to be taken seriously, and after her boyfriend’s affair with a costar, she’s ready for a new scene. A vacation at Sullivan Lake with Hollywood power player Jasmine McArthur might be the answer to all her problems. And according to Jasmine, all Ashley needs is a hot summer fling with local stud Josh Sullivan.

After one look at the handsome handyman, Ashley has a hard time saying no. But Josh is tired of playing boy toy for rich women like Jasmine and her friends. As determined as he is to stay away, he can’t shake the feeling that Ashley is different—and he can’t help noticing her auburn hair and dancing green eyes. But when their budding romance hits the tabloids, will it be another Hollywood scandal, or happily ever after?

Kassiah: The summary for this story is pretty spot on so I’ll just tell you about my favorite thing, which wont surprise you a bit. I loved Josh! He was so swoony and sexy. I liked his character so much. I love that he was sick of being objectified. I feel like my way of thinking is changing, and this is something that really bothers me. Why is it okay for everyone to think it’s perfectly acceptable for anyone to think the way to get over anything is to take a ride on the resident playboy? That was a lot of words, huh? I just mean if it was a girl–who most people in town would call a slut–we’d be outraged. Oh, your friend is new to town and getting over his girlfriend cheating on him? Hook up with Susie Q. She’ll fuck anything that walks and throws a smirk her way. We wouldn’t like that. Why do the guys have less feelings, even if they have slept with everyone? /rant

Anyway…I thought Josh’s character was great, and I loved him a lot. The girl? Ugh. She annoyed me. I wanted her to get on a plane to Hollywood and never come back. She didn’t deserve Josh for sure. With that being said, the storyline here was fine, and I’ll be reading the next book in the series just to get more of Josh. I think. Just a Summer Fling might be a good pick for small town romance lovers who don’t mind annoying heroines.
