Four years ago attorney Kate Randall had a traumatic breakup after 17 years of relationship. No wonder she is reluctant to try again and is enjoying her single status. That is, until she meets singer Jordan Squire who is sexy, kind and interested. Pity that she is almost two decades younger. Will Kate see past the age difference and her relationship baggage to give Jordan a chance?
There’s no doubt that ‘Summer fling’ is a well written book, the characters are skilfully portrayed and the dialogues are witty and funny. My problem is that I just couldn’t warm to the main characters, specially Kate who comes across to me as self-centered and immature. The conversations and behaviour of Kate and her friends seem more typical of people in their 20s not late 40s. It was frustrating to read at times. Jordan, on the other hand, is exactly the opposite. She is mature, patient and ready to commit. So much so that readers might wonder what she sees in Kate. While I understand that opposites might attract, it really didn’t work for me. Having said that, it doesn’t mean that other readers could enjoy this story.
Overall, an ok read if you can can put up with a frustrating main character. 3.5 stars.
