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!

I’ve been looking forward to Flirting in Florence the most out of all the Summer Flings novellas so far. Right from the start back in Tinseltown and Miami, there were plenty of hints as to some of the twists to come and with this being the penultimate novel, Florence was where all the drama had to unfold. Aimee Duffy has, yet again, written another great novella with the best set up for the final book. Not forgetting to mention the gorgeous cover which is my favourite out of the series.

As it had to be, Flirting in Florence is Ciara and Zack’s story, as they’re forced to confront the fact that their summer fling is a little more full-on than they had intended. Everything explored throughout the previous books has been touched on again here – like the reason why Ciara is so reluctant for a relationship with anyone and the reason why Elle has been so frustrated with her cousin. The plot had been developed really well up to this point and it carried on in the same manner here – except with a few more twists added in to really spice things up.

The ending I absolutely loved and I feel like Flirting to Florence definitely succeeded at providing the best set-up for the last book in the series, Deliver Us to Dublin With Care. I loved the way Aimee built up to the end of this novella – her style of writing feels really natural and more like a typical progression of Zack and Ciara’s story rather than exaggerated twists being forced on us. It’s hard to mention too much of the plot at this stage without giving anything away but I know the way I want things to work out in Dublin though whether it will go that way is still up in the air... Aimee has brought me some of my favourite books this summer and I definitely won’t be glad to see the back of these characters. Flirting in Florence is my easiest five star rating of the series.
