Title: Trouble in Tinsel Town by Amiee Duffy

Published by: HarperImpulse

RRP/Availability : £0.49 (Kindle only!)

Rating: 4/5 (Because it's a short story, that I am sure when read in conjunction with the follow ups will make it a total 5/5)


Part 1 of Summer Flings - a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

Armed with a degree from Oxford that she doesn't have a clue what to do with, Ciara Bree convinces her two best friends, Elle and Gem to spend their first summer of freedom backpacking across the globe. Now it's time to shop, sunbathe, think about boys for a change, and party hard...

First stop: LA!

The girls hit Tinseltown for a few days of shopping, star spotting, and even a movie premiere!
But their plan to sneak into an exclusive celeb party in West Hollywood backfires. Elle's gorgeous older cousin, Zack, is called to the rescue and despite knowing she should stay away, Ciara just can't seem to resist him.

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


Oh I do love a short e-book story, and Amiee, definitely provided me with that. It was classic chick-lit in that a girl meets a boy, falls head over heels for him (in this case... quite literally!), lust and sexual hormones run riot, one thing leads to another... (or in this case, one romp leads to orgasm after orgasm!), and then what was thought to be a fling (one night stand), ends up being something else... or does it?!

The book begins with 3 friends heading off on a trip around the globe, they start in LA and after landing with their luggage from London, they head off into the pool for some Tequila Shot Volleyball. Ciara Bree finds herself a little hot even in the cool pool water when Elle's cousin walks in ... with his shirt off. Elle and her cousin end up fighting (or maybe it was Elle doing the fighting and her cousin just listening - Gem and Ciara couldn't quite tell!), and when things start to cool down, Ciara goes on the hunt for her bedroom. Instead she finds a hot hunk and let's just say that temperatures rise.... steadily.

A fabulously short read for someone who wants a hit of chick-lit like Ciara, Elle and Gem like tequila shots!
With follow ups available.... who can resist such a laugh out loud chick-lit?
