Review: Misbehaving in Miami by Aimée Duffy (5/5)

Sunday 10 August 2014
Review will contain spoilers!

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!

So I loved Trouble in Tinseltown (Review) and couldn't wait to get my hands on Misbehaving in Miami. Continuing from Chapter 4 the book is cut up into sections and as such you absolutely have to read Trouble in Tinseltown first and this review will inevitably contain spoilers from that book. Ordinarily I am not a fan of books that have been chopped up but being released as Summer Flings, with fantastic titles and amazing covers it absolutely works here and I'm definitely a fan of how these books are being released. Perfect for the commute, in the bath, before bed, waiting for the tea to cook... They take about half an hour to read so can be read anywhere!

Aimée has definitely chosen the two best places to kick off the story. I love LA and Miami and would love to visit them one day. From the descriptions of the city to the fantastic food I was literally salivating and felt as if I was there myself. Ciara, Elle and Gem are out for some fun and once again find themselves in some hilarious situations. 

Ciara however is still having trouble thinking about where she wants to go in life and there is also the small problem of not being able to get her best friend's cousin, Zack out of her mind. So it's not all fun and games there is a serious side to this story and even after a short amount of time I absolutely love Ciara. She's Irish so wins bonus points for that and there's an air of mystery around her and we are slowly learning more about her.

I also found myself feeling jealous of the girls in these fabulous locations and even more so knowing there is more to come. A holiday is just what I need right now but it looks like I'll have to settle for following these three hilarious ladies around the world.

With these being short stories I imagine a lot of people will be reading them on the Tube, or on buses and certain scenes will definitely have you hot under the collar. I'm certainly looking at ice cream in a whole new way that's for sure. Again though it's not all just sex and fun the relationship between Ciara and Zack is believable and at times intense and you definitely find yourself rooting for the two of them as we learn more about them and their pasts. As a reader I was screaming for them to get together.

Aimée is hugely talented in her ability to have us relate to and care for her characters after just a few pages and to also have us glued to the book after a few pages. So engrossed was I in the story that I was trying to turn the page only to see the book was over. And that's why this just works so well as a serialisation. Like Ciara you are left gagging for more and despite not being a huge fan of Paris I cannot wait to carry on reading the next installment! Not much else I can say to reccommend this book except a short story has to be pretty good to get 5 stars from me and I didn't even have to question giving them to this book.

Buy from Amazon
