It’s just supposed to be a weekend fling. . . . “Stacey Lynn always knows how to perfectly balance sexy and sweet.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne

Fresh out of a long-term relationship, Willow Parks is working two jobs and caring for her mother, whose husband left her with nothing but a pile of bills. That’s why Willow made a vow: no men until she figures out her own life.

But while she may not need a man, she could use a break. And a weekend away at a California beach to clear her head? That’s appealing. Even if the offer comes from Trey Collins, the irresistible tech-mogul millionaire who visits her coffee shop every morning like clockwork—and needs a date for his best friend’s wedding. With an adorable, occasional stutter, he refuses to take no for an answer.

Once the weekend begins, Trey is intent on proving how good they can be together. Willow’s even feeling tempted to break her vow—until reality rudely interrupts her well-deserved getaway. There’s no way she and Trey have a future, not with the colossal amount of baggage Willow has to offer.

But Trey is used to getting what he wants. He just has his work cut out for him convincing her that they want the same thing.
I have seen Stacey Lynn's books around, but never actually read them, so Weekend Fling was my first by her. It's part of her series, but you don't have to read the other ones, just the other couples show up in this book. I have to admit this book ended up being way more angsty than I thought it was going to be. If you read the author's note this make sense, but I still went into this book wanting a really light read, and I didn't get that.

I really liked the chemistry between the two characters, I understood Willow's trepidation, but she also frustrated me. I also had to suspend my belief a little bit, because going away for the weekend with a guy you barely know? Girl, that's how you get murdered!! It's okay, because it's a romance book, but still.

I wasn't really expecting the family drama in this one, and it made it a little too dramatic for me. I also didn't understand her dad's reasonings for just ghosting them. It's explained, but it also just felt too easy for me.

I did like that Trey was so patient with Willow and allowed her to come back to him. He was a good man, and I love reading romance books about good men.

I still enjoyed this one, but the darkness in it just wasn't what I was looking for in this book. Especially since I didn't get any indication of that from the PR copy.
