⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sexy and emotional

Weekend Fling (Crazy Love, #4)

A lot can change in a weekend, as this fast-paced, sexy yet also heavy book shows. Stacey Lynn’s writing won me over with Fake Wife and kept me hooked for the whole series. While this book isn’t my favorite in the series (that honor still goes to Fake Wife), I really enjoyed the first half and getting to feel the chemistry between this couple as it plays out over a weekend. Ultimately, the post-weekend portion of the book felt rushed and focused too much on real world issues for me to call this 5-stars, but it wraps up the series perfectly.

The story follows Willow, an overworked woman whose mother is not handling her divorce well, forcing Willow to pick up the slack. She’s recently dumped, broke, and spending every spare minute she has trying to dig herself out of the hole she finds herself in. There’s a hot guy, Trey, who frequents the coffee shop she works at, and he’s been asking her out for months without any luck. When he ups the ante and asks her to attend an out of town wedding with him over the course of weekend, Willow can’t resist escaping reality for a few days… knowing that a fling is all she’s capable of at the moment. But Trey’s been pursuing Willow too long to give up so easily, and he’s determined to show her that it’s worth exploring something lasting.

I loved the concept and seeing the weekend play out in depth. We get to see the chemistry between these two and the attraction continue to build over the course of the weekend, but a lot of that felt sexual and somewhat insta-lovey. I wanted to see more of what happened post-wedding, when they’re living their everyday lives. From previous books in the series, we know Trey can be a workaholic who doesn’t take care of himself when he’s working on a project, but Weekend Fling really just focuses on the good parts of him. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it felt a little superficial, like Willow is the only one whose life is complicated. Things do get pretty heavy towards the end (some triggers regarding mental health here), and while I appreciated that, it also took the focus off of developing Willow and Trey’s relationship. I did love how prominently characters from the previous books were featured – it still easy stands alone from the others, but fans of the series will appreciate seeing the characters they’ve read about in the past. If this is the last book in the series, it definitely wrapped things up in a satisfying way. I received an ARC via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving a review of this book.
