Part 5 of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

After their not-so-relaxing week in the sun, the girls are off to the clubbing capitol of the world to let off some steam.

Skater boys, Ibiza’s Next Top Model competition and skimpy gold bikini’s don’t compare to the man Ciara’s desperate to cheer up. She’s beginning to realize her summer fling isn’t as uncomplicated as it should be.

To make things worse, she finds out that her best friends are keeping secrets from her that could change everything…

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

Let me start by saying, I LOVE the title of this novella. It’s absolutely brilliant and perfectly describes what we’ve all seen or heard about Ibiza. Ciara, Gem and Elle have just couple of days in the clubbing capitol, and they sure don’t want to waste any time.

Loads of fun, flirting, even a Next Top Model Competition, make this installment from the #Summer Flings series really an enjoyable read. There’s lot of hot action between Ciara and Zack, again maybe bit too much for my liking, however it really was an enjoyable short read overall.

The thing with this series, despite being addictive, is the fact that you can really see how these characters transform in front of your eyes, they gain depth and you really start connecting with them as you continue reading the series.

One of the things which I liked about this one, compared to the other in the series is we get to see a different side to Zack, learn more about his love life previous to the fling with Ciara as well as about the issues with his family. I liked the fact there’s more dialogue and less sex between him and Cia, and they really seem to develop more as a couple.

However, despite being easy and enjoyable read, I still had some issues with it. My main complaint would be the length (but not much can be done about it, it is as it is) and the fact I’m not feeling the setting. All of these novellas are supposed to be about having fun in such awesome cities, cities most of us haven’t visited, and I really wish Ms Duffy did more research on these location. I’m not saying I expect reads like this to be tourist guides, however I wish there were more details about the setting.

My rating: 6/10
