Sinfully Summer - Aimee Duffy
Source: Review copy from HarperImpulse
Notorious heiress Alexa Green has certainly been enjoying her most recent girls-holiday in Marbella. Just as we thought, she’s been knocking back the cocktails and showing off her fabulous bikini body on the beach… but rumour has it she’s also been spotted sneaking out of Enrique Castillo’s penthouse in the early hours of this morning – in nothing but her underwear!
Our question is, doesn’t this fiercely private billionaire know what he’s letting himself in for?
Sinfully Summer has you head first straight into rich girl drama. This has you thinking that it is going to be another spoilt rich girl, boring party book. It is so not like that. It is classy and totally deserving of your time.
Following bolshy but strait-laced pap favourite Alexa Green on a girly holiday in Marbella, we watch how she unexpectedly ends up blackmailed into working alongside Spanish millionaire and hotel chain heir Enrique Castillo planning a fund-raising event. As a volatile and sexually frustrated relationship blossoms between the two can they get a long for the charity event they're organising or will it all come crashing down around their ears?
Not only has Aimee Duffy given us a funny and charming read she's also given us a sexy and dark one too. A perfect combination for us ladies I would most definitely say. As the plot stays focused on the two main characters and is written flitting from male to female thoughts, it brings just enough depth to allow the story not to get boring as some books written this way end up. I enjoyed the drama and the whole set up, but thought the whole dynamic between both characters when together shows their so called bad girl/boy images in a different light and how when they benefited in personality with banter.
It's a perfect summer read and one I recommend in your beach bag this year. Fabulous!
Sexy, fun and as hot as the summers sun.
P.s... As soon as I read the name Enrique Castillo my mind went straight for Enrique Iglesias. Oh how much that face fits perfect to this story. Ladies, I'm sure you'll catch my drift with this ;)
