Book Description

30 May 2013

The Pleasures of Summer is a steamy erotic story of romantic obsession and explosive sexual chemistry for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, The Pleasures of Winter and Sylvia Day's stories.

Summer O'Sullivan is rich, beautiful and in mortal danger. Her father has made powerful enemies who are targeting his precious daughter. Until the threat passes, Summer needs a bodyguard - someone to protect her and, she expects, to treat her with the reverence she's used to.

Into Summer's gilded cage comes former ranger, Flynn Grant. As far as Flynn is concerned, this is the assignment from hell, minding the spoilt daughter of a multi-millionaire. Summer and Flynn are poised to hate each other on sight. Even his devastating looks do not make up for how Flynn's rules cramp Summer's style. Unsurprisingly, the sparks fly between them. But when Summer breaks the rules one time too often, Flynn teaches her a lesson that leaves them shattered - and bound together in a way that astonishes them both.

In their remote hideout, the two start a battle over who is the tamer, and who is the tamed. It's a duel that stretches their minds and bodies beyond every limit. And in time their hearts begin to surrender too.

But when the dark forces that have been stalking Summer finally track them down, the battle is no longer a game, but a matter of life and death ...

Review

Move over Fifty - this gives far more pleasure ... a thrashing good read (Irish Independent)

One of those rare books that has stolen my heart, my mind and my soul ... a flawless, exciting and down-right steamy read that will stay with you long after your finish. (Totally-bookalicious.co.uk)

This book blows Fifty Shades out of the water ... I unabashedly adored this book (Ravingbookaddict.blogspot)

A combustive and sizzling tale, not soon forgotten ... There were times, while I was reading that I found myself so emotionally engrossed within the story and the characters that I found my heart skipping and tears welling up. (Romancing-the-book.com)

If you're looking for something hot and steamy with intense chemistry then you can't go wrong with this one. (Feelingfictional.com)

5.0 out of 5 stars As hot as a Summers day 5 Jun 2013
By Nicola_1202 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great read and as much as I liked The Pleasures of Winter, I found this a much better story with characters who were much more likeable. One of the things I love about these books is how the lead characters don't have dark tortured pasts, yet they still have secrets and personal pain.

I warmed easily to both Summer and Flynn. He's sexy, full of fire and wit and is dominant and protective. As a Soldier, he is always cool, calm and collected, however his latest mission tests his resolve to the max. Summer. Daughter of a wealthy airline owner, she's the proverbial spoilt only child and she has a stalker. Feisty, strong-willed and stubborn she resents having a bodyguard. Particularly one who is dominant and bossy...in more ways than one.

Scratch the surface and both Flynn and Summer are deep, interesting chracters. It is well written, flows wells and their stubborn argumentative banter and disagreements lead to some very hot action. The Dom/Sub aspect isn't over the top or shocking and befits the storyline perfectly. With twists, surprises and some action heading towards the finish line, it was a book I couldn't put down.

A great read that I would definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars It was a pleasure 10 Feb 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was linking to characters from her previous books and that made it a more rounded read. What I always love about the authors style is that is a little bit of a who did-it. Would recommend this.

Loved this book as the authors characters actually live on the page.,Her writing has a decent story and isnt all sex and heaving bodies.But does grip you and want you to continue to read long after the mifnigh oil has run low!! Love Flynn the Dom in this.The kind of man you would want draped over a bed with a glass of champers!! Read all three of her books,all really worth the read and money!!
