Part 2 of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

The girls are off to a beach house to catch some rays – and if they play their cards right – super hot guys!

With drinking games in the name of Gucci, a surprise visit from a very pissed off Zack and hunks galore, Miami is turning into their best stop yet. Not to mention Ciara finally comes up with a way to have her cake and eat it too!

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

Misbehaving in Miami follows straight on from the fun first instalment, Trouble in Tinseltown and though I loved Trouble in Tinseltown, this Summer Flings series is getting even better. Ciara, Elle and Gem’s characters are brought to life here and individually, they all shine a little bit more as we learn more about them. Aimee Duffy’s novellas, so far, are simply faultless.

I’m again impressed by how much was packed into Misbehaving in Miami without any of it feeling rushed or unrealistic. Sex, drama and shopping are just a few of the typical things you expect to find in a summer holiday read but Aimee combines that with a lot more in a book which takes no longer than half an hour to read. It’s pure entertainment alongside some brilliant characters which are so easy to take to.

Ciara is my absolute favourite of the girls - she’s a little more grounded than the others but can still have a good time. I love the contrast between her and Elle and Gem, they’ve got very different mentalities and although maybe Ciara wishes she didn’t get caught up in their drama all the time, she doesn’t try and change them as people. It feels like a proper friendship. When Zack is back on the scene, I love seeing Ciara’s character develop even more. Actually, there was one particular scene between them which I won’t be forgetting any time soon!

Elle and Gem’s personalities come through a lot more in Misbehaving in Miami too. With the involvement of Brandon, Matt and Rye, we’re given the chance to learn more about Elle and Gem by seeing their approach with the guys and the way things worked out. For me, their characters have just as much to give as Ciara’s does and I look forward to more from all three of them in Point us to Paris.

Whether you’re off on your holidays or dreaming about going on one, the Summer Flings series is completely worth a read. Misbehaving in Miami was fun, steamy and had me laughing out loud too and the rest of the series is straight onto the top of my TBR as the author really knows how to bring us some great summer entertainment.
