Part 4 of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

Who needs fun when you can chill out in a stunning villa in Santorini all week and be pampered in every way possible? Ciara does.

After an unfortunate wardrobe faux par, challenging her friends to jet ski racing, and hooking up with an unexpected visitor, Ciara’s all about sex on the beach… the yacht… in the sea – wherever and whenever really! And she’s not alone. It’s the perfect fling in theory, but what happens when their Greek adventure comes to an end?

The ideal summer treat for those relaxing days soaking up the sun!

‘Geeks Go Greek’ is the forth installment in the #Summer Flings series, and frankly, the part I least enjoyed. Ciara, Gem and Elle are now in Santorini, enjoying being pampered and relaxing on the sunny beaches. We’ve already elaborated that they love partying and meeting new people, so being in Santorini is no exception. They get to wear their ‘Geeks Gone Greek’ tees, see gorgeous Mediterranean guys, sipping cold drinks under the scorching sun.

It is really hard to review such short stories, because I always fear I might end up writing a spoiler, and believe me, that’s the last thing I’d want to do. However, I must point out to the things I liked and disliked. I liked the fact we get to see more of Zack. However, the sex scenes seemed a bit too much. In fact, now that I’ve read the whole series, I really think Ms Duffy doesn’t need to focus on sex and lust so much. I’ve read enough of Ms Duffy’s works and I’m convinced she’s talented, however I must say I actually preferred scenes where she focuses on the friendship between the girls more than on the thing between Zack and Cia. Also, some things felt repetitive, meaning they were once said in the previous parts, readers read them and now it’s time to move on. However, maybe this makes things easier for the reader who won’t read the whole series but jump to this part immediately.

But, ending up on a lighter note, the Summer Fling series is quite addictive and overall (as a series), easy to read and enjoyable.

My rating: 5/10
