As the top PR person for the Belmont Health System, bright, beautiful Jenna McArthur knows how to spin bad news and make it sound good. But when her adorable Aunt Gertie - a secret romance writer - urges Jenna to embrace her wild side, Jenna tumbles into bed with Adam Thomas, a guy she's just met, for a fun and fantastic one-night stand. Too bad Adam is the one guy who's totally off-limits. There aren't enough clever words in the world to spin the story in a way that won't wreck Jenna's closest friendship or destroy her job.
With the irresistible Adam always around her at work, wearing an aura of temptation like a fabulous cologne, Jenna has to hold tight to her senses to avoid falling for him. Will he take her to the heights of pleasure again - or will their attraction destroy everything she's worked for?

"About that Fling Stars"
I am on the fence if I loved it or liked it. It was different. I wasn’t sure what I wanted out of this book. I liked the connection each character has whether it’s a connection that makes everyone comfortable or not.
I have never experienced any of the heavy issues addressed in this book but my heart goes out to people who have.
I found the book to be a little slow; I liked the time line and all but just felt like we were waiting for something that never really happened.
I am not really sure how to write this review to be honest, I don’t want to give anything away if I talk about it. So I will go generic.
Jenna falls for her best friend Mia’s ex-husband. Her elderly aunt writes erotica. What a hoot she was. And they all have to find a way to work together because Adam the ex has been hired at both Jenna and Mia’s work place.
I smiled a lot in this book, over all a great listen because I upgraded to the audio. I really enjoyed Kelly Mizell’s narration. Worth the read for sure.
"Kelly Mizell's narration is truly excellent."
Ms. Mizell's different voices were each very good & I never heard her mispronounce words or use incorrect ones. Aunt Gert's character makes what could have been a very heavy book dealing with difficult interpersonal relationships into a very humorous book. The main characters relationships remind me of Susan Feniger & Mary Sue Milliken who owned the Border Grill & once had the TV show THE TOO HOT TAMALES. After Mary Sue (I think) & her husband divorced; amicably; she encouraged her ex to date her partner Susan. Who were married when I used to watch their show. So a real case of best friends & ex-husbands.
"Book was ok. "
Book was ok. Kind o boring and story was drawn out. Did not like Mena's character she was uncensored and loud. I did manage to finish the book.
it's a great book for anyone who's bin through the Rollercoaster of life. cute read.
"Adam & Jenna!"
I really enjoyed this book! It deals with real life situations that I was able to relate to and I got to see from another point of view just how actions made affect other people. Loved the characters in this book, some more than others and loved the ending! I thought the story flowed beautifully but would have liked some more sexy scenes!
"so much humor.... loved it <3❤💙💛💜💚"
I laughed and cried with this one.. I loved it. such great humor all through the book.
"About That Fling"
I really liked this book. It turned out to be better than expected. More depth and emotional conflicts. Not just fluff.
I love the relationships between the characters and the dynamics of friendship and forgiveness. letting go of baggage. The narrator did a beautiful job in expressing all the characters :-)
"A nice listen for a long drive"
The emotion and the small detail that the writer created was something I have either felt or can relate to.
The part when they met in the bar. I'v been on so many first dates....it reminded me that some of them were A LOT of fun.
the moments when Jenna was torn between her best friend and falling in love.
"How not to meet you're best friends exhusband!!"
Once the audio came out I didn't read my print version. Library is backed up and I wanted to get to the story faster.
How Adam handled the whole ordeal with Jenna and Mia being best friends. He kept his cool the best he could considering everything that was going on. Then there was how Aunt Gert saw everything.
She just added another layer to Jenna's voice.
It made me laugh. Tawna knows how to tell a good story.
I would highly recommend listening to this story. Everything Jenna and Adam deal with makes you look at life and say if they can why can't we. This book has a lot of layers and some really hard choices for Jenna to learn and over come. It's truly a wonderful book of a woman overcoming so major issues she's dealing with.
