The Blurb:

Part 6 of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

Instead of hitting the designer shops with her friends, Ciara’s all about proving Florence can be enjoyed on a budget – and she isn’t talking about the sexy Italians Elle and Gem pick up for the duration!

One-on-one with Zack is getting too intense so she plans a grape-squishing trip to a vineyard hoping to leave her problems back in the city. Of course her doomed affair is the least of her worries when her friendship with his cousin is on the line.

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

My review:

Hooray, the sixth installment of the summer flings series is here, and an opportunity to check in with Ciara, Gem and Elle and see what they are up to as they arrive in Italy. Infact I was so eager I downloaded it at midnight, snuggled under my duvet, and had finished by 1am.

I love Italy, and Florence is a beautiful city. I was delighted to see that Ciara has decided to show the others how to sightsee and survive in a city without breaking the bank. As a result we saw a bit more of Florence than in earlier parts of the series which I really liked.

The main storyline is around Ciara and Zack, and theirgrowing realisation that this is developing into more than a mere summer fling. D'oh, we readers have seen this for ages!! It is far more romantic than the others, and not just about them ripping eachothers clothes off at every second, although that is of course still there.....However, we do learn a deeper side to both of them, about their past and their ambitions.

There is of course still fun and laughter and Elle and Gem are still in pursuit of some flirting and fun. I have grown to like these two more with each trip, and I like seeing how at first you get the impression that Elle doesnt care about her cousin, yet, as you delve deeper she does have his back.

Flirting in Florence has really set the reader up for the final installment, Deliver us to Dublin....will they be delivered intact or will some spanners be thrown in the works? I cant possibly reveal how Florence ends, you will have to read it for yourselves.

Im very excited about seeing what happens, but also sad as it will be the end of the summer flings series, and not only will I miss the girls, but September will be almost upon least we have had a great summer of fun, and this series has been brilliant.
