This was such a fun read! Each story reeled me in with sassy female characters, romantic chemistry between the leads, sparkling storylines, and a touch of humor. I love how in Lisa Scott's collections, the stories are intertwined. This collection is a wonderful read for the beach or for cozying up on the couch. It's exactly the kind of romance style that I enjoy reading - light, witty and flirty, but without graphic scenes. And it's so nice to read stories with happy endings. This collection will put you in a good mood, and once readers finish this one, they'll be scurrying to buy Lisa Scott's other books. Luckily for romance readers, she has plenty of titles available including several Flirts short story collections. I've already read three of her books and will be making my way through all of them.
