Part 3 of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

Ciara would rather be anywhere else in the world than Paris. All the gooey eyed couples and handholding are making her miserable.

But Elle doesn’t have time for moping – not when she’s got the three of them on the guest list of an exclusive club. So Ciara tries her best to enjoy the free champagne, the loft party looking over the Seine and a little harmless sexting – until they realize they’ve stumbled into a nightmare none of them were prepared for.

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

And the girls are back, this time headed to the city of romance. Ah Paris! Cia, Gem and Elle should be thrilled be in this city, however they can’t completely enjoy it since there’s bit of trouble on the horizon. Ciara gets into a fight with her BFF, so this got things complicated a bit.

However, like in the previous two parts of the #Summer Flings series, we get loads of clubbing, partying and shopping. ‘Point us to Paris’, like all the novella’s in this series is rather short and I fear whatever I might say about the plot will be a big fat spoiler. However, I will comment the development of the characters, which is going in a direction I like. I mentioned something in my review of the previous part ‘Misbehaving in Miami’ about seeing the more emotional, vulnerable side of Ciara, and in this installment we get to see that side of Elle too. I was actually surprised to see that, because you know..Elle is a party beast at least it’s what she seemed to be, but I totally enjoyed this softer side of hers.

Still, as enjoyable as it was, ‘Point us to Paris’ is not my favorite installment in the series. I can’t help but think that I would enjoy it more if it was a bit longer, but really that’s the truth. I personally think some scenes required more pages and depth.

My rating: 6/10
