If SEX IN THE CITY, lightly covered in a baseball outfit, sounds intriguing than LuAnn McLane's, HOT SUMMER NIGHTS, is your reading ticket. I'm rating this A minus because . . . well because it was entertaining . . . and the joy of reading IS to be entertained!
HOT SUMMER NIGHTS is three sultry stories embracing small town USA, a love of baseball, and hot sex.
HOT AUGUST NIGHT:
Two old high school acquaintances meet again and begin a new and different relationship.
In school, Erin O'Shea was the ugly little duckling, the duckling who bloomed into the desirable woman. Michael Manning was "the" high school guy, the pitching star who made the big leagues. But now he is home, looking for a job, and for something missing under the big city lights. Torridly, he gets the job, the girl, and the missing piece in his life.
Josey Cooper is a remade divorced woman. Trying to rebuild her self-esteem, Josey is terrified to fall in love again. Chase Mitchell wants to settle down, but feels woman want him because he is/was a famous pro athlete. He feels like a conquest.
Note -- This was the only entry with an unsettling obstacle. Chase's quick anger is hard to take. The author wants the reader to believe he feels used, but his childlike behavior fills the reader with a lingering uncomfortable feeling.
Now this was the fun story - ladies out on the town celebrating a bachelorette night. A group of friends having fun, growing bolder with each alcoholic sip, and wagering outrageous dares. Dares that ends their night and changes their lives.
The dare made Halley Forrester do it! But the enchantment sealed it! Reese Taylor is a dynamite pitcher who needs an attitude adjustment. Halley is that alignment.
