Product Description

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)

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.

Format: Paperback
Summer O'Sullivan. It is a name and face most people know from the scandalous headlines in the tabloids. With one broken engagement behind her, the daughter of a self-made and very rich airline owner is known for her outrageous exploits and scandalous adventures. But, it would appear that she is in danger and when her father has to travel from London to America for a month and Summer refuses to spend that time with her grandmother in Ireland, he decides to hire a body-guard to keep her safe. To say that Summer is less than impressed with this idea would be an understatement and she manages to get rid of several hired minders within little or no time.

Enter Flynn Grant, a former Army Ranger with little patience for spoiled little rich girls. Summer's tricks won't work with him. He may not like the job, but since he has been hired to keep this girl safe that is exactly what he will do. And what is more, he will do it on his terms; Summer will just have to get used to following orders.

Unsurprisingly it is a major culture clash when these two characters meet, but despite the anger and exasperation they ignite in each other there is no denying the attraction between Summer and Flynn. When Summer goes a bit too far while satisfying her curiosity it is only Flynn's timely arrival that prevents her from ending up in a situation she was completely unprepared for. Flynn however is furious and this anger combined with the attraction he has been feeling leads to a night that more than answers Summer's curious questions and gives them both something to think about.

A month in a remote Scottish hiding-place takes Summer completely out of her comfort-zone and gives both her and Flynn the opportunity to discover sides of each other that they never expected.

I read this book very quickly! The titled character, Summer, is refreshingly not the typical damaged, fragile soul whom the alpha has to put back together. She's a brat, and very unlikable at first. Flynn arrives to take care of Summer, who's being stalked/threatened and he takes no nonsense!

I enjoyed reading the banter and comedy of wits between these two. There were some pretty hot scenes and all in a remote Scottish setting which was different.

You will find yourself caring about these two as you get into the book and anticipate fun and 'frolics'. The book typically has some bad guys, a jealous ex and a strangely affectionate brother, plus the usual nail-biting rescue scenario, but all in all, this is quite a fresh and enjoyable read.

I find it's better paying £2.99 for something well edited and well written than a cheap 77p bargain. It's false economy and you get what you pay for.

This book was just great, it contained love , lust , drama, and excitement. I have never written a report of any of the books I've read & I've read hundreds. I found this book I didn't want to put down and read it straight through in a couple of days ( due to commitments had to leave it for a while) . I love this author and loved The Pleasures of Winter but I found this one better. This book had a story which I liked with the sexual tension that just borders on erotic but without being all about the sex so becomes a love story rather than a 'porn' book. Can't wait to see if there is to be The Pleasures of Spring or Autumn as I will definitely be buying them .

Firstly I'd like to thank the publishers Penguin Ireland for sending me this book to read and give an honest review. I previously read and reviewed The Pleasures of Winter and A Touch of Winter both of which I really enjoyed so I was definitely looking forward to reading this one.

The prologue was tense and full of action, it set the scene well - I was immediately thinking of questions: Who was the guy in the van? Why was he after Summer? What happened next? It was clear even from that point that I would be hooked by this storyline!

Six months later and Summer was still facing security issues so her father put his foot down and demanded that she have a bodyguard. I had a bit of a chuckle as Summer proceeded to get rid of a string of bodyguards one by one using some very sneaky tactics. Then came the sexy and powerful Flynn, someone who was not going to be quite so easy to get rid of.

I have to admit that I wasn't too sure about Summer to begin with, she seemed too spoilt and manipulative for my liking - I just couldn't relate to any side of her at the start. I soon realised though that her attitude and rebellious streak was mostly a front put on for other people's benefit and inside she wasn't half as confident. Her initial curiosity into the world of Doms and Subs got her into a dangerous situation which put her off a bit but not completely, it was obviously a desire that was deep-rooted so I knew it wouldn't be long before the issue came up again.

I absolutely loved the feisty chemistry and battles for power between Summer and Flynn, they were definitely well matched and this made their time together fun to read (they were very entertaining and I found myself laughing quite a few times when they clashed).
