“It’s About Time” (Bowling Friends, 4)

The Stories

Lori Foster‘s “Luscious” is all about the Luscious Lucius. A hunky SWAT team member who parlayed an inheritance into an apartment building he rents to women out of luck. One of his tenants has a particularly luscious twin sister he is just dying to know better.

Erin McCarthy‘s “It’s About Time” is just that. About time for Caleb Vancouver to jump back into the dating pool. About time for Trish Jones to have some fun with a guy who doesn’t wear a suit. And isn’t it just about time that they end up meeting each other on a night when each needs the other.

Amy Garvey‘s “Wish You Were Here” is a dream come true in so many ways for Mackenzie Pruitt. Her aunt died and left her the cottage on the beach. With a yard and a shed just dying to be made over into a proper photography studio. Then the contractor of anyone’s dreams shows up. Leo Dawson. A hunk on two feet with a mouth and imagination to die for. A hunk with too many secrets.

The Cover and Title

It’s definitely a carefree summer of a cover with a cute guy laying out on the sands, waves gently lapping the shore as kites fly above in the blue, blue sky.

As for the title, it’s convenient, but don’t expect any but the last to refer to what “summer” conjures up.
