Don't Stand So Close To Me (The Police)
19 year old Kay-Kay flirts unmercifully with Alex a man she has known for over ten years and who is twice her age. He has been a councilor at her summer camp since she was young and this summer, she is determined to seduce him. Kay-Kay's best friends warn her that an affair with Alex will end in trouble, but Kay-Kay can't help herself. She is too far gone into the fantasy of it.
Somebody that I used to Know (Gotye)
21 year old Jody is not looking for love after her boyfriend of two years broke up with her at the beginning of summer. Jody doesn't understand why they broke up as both were heading towards marriage with the blessing of their rich parents. Jody's friends are relieved she is single and point her in the direction of the hot new, Irish bartender who seems to have his eye on her. Liam is tattooed, pierced and has an amazing voice that melts her bones when he says her name, but Jo likes everything to be "safe" and Liam is definitely NOT safe.
Break Your Heart (Taio Cruz)
20 year old Sam says, "It's not my attitude that sucks, it's my life". She swears, smokes, sleeps around and tries to shock those around her that aren't as bad as she is. She is a rebel who doesn't care about rules, but is running scared from love. Nate is her dance partner and current lover who has professed his love for her, which caused her to bolt. She doesn't do love.
Summer Loving, Had Me Some Fun (Grease)
All three are involved in relationships with men that others would call inappropriate, but that make them happy. Even the unlikely friendship between the girls is fueled by the uniqueness of summer. For 10 weeks they struggle to find love, happiness and self acceptance.
Third story has a lot of profanity (f-word, sh, gd)

Finish her business degree get a career and marry Jeff. When her perfect life shatters she is lost. She isn't like Kay Kay or Sam. She's innocent.

Sam doesn't care about anything but partying and having the time of her life at the miserable camp this summer. She HAS to forget. Nate wasn't suppose to happen. She wasn't prepared for what was thrown her way. Will Sam get her wish or will she finally see the good in her?
Each different, but all facing the same thing. Complicated Love.
3.5 Stars-I enjoyed Kay Kay's story with Alex and although it weirded me out at first I was happy when everything seemed to work out for them. Her go for what you want attitude was exactly what was needed and what made her story great to read.
4 Stars-Jody's story was definitely my favorite. Although she frustrated me at times I loved seeing the transformation in her. I loved Liam and the impact he had on her change. I loved how he was patient and loving with her. Although he screwed up he made up for it and had me on his good side again. When I got to the end of her story I was sad and wished for more.
3 Stars-The story I liked least was Sam's. I understood where her fear came from and why she ran but didn't really connect to her character. She was really bitchy and slutty and then everything just patched up. She got scared, she ran, she tried to forget, she ran back. That sums up her story.
The one thing I would have liked was for the girls to have more of a connection. It seemed like they were all just friends because they were stuck at camp.
All in all I enjoyed reading this. The first two stories were the best. Jody's being my favorite. Anyone looking for a light read will enjoy these three stories.
I loved the impulsiveness of Kay Kay, love the Irish bartender (reow!), and Sam's story, while familiar, is beautifully done.
Can't wait for MORE from this writing dream team!
A must read!
