Yeah.” Ryan cleared his throat. “I kind of like it here. I was thinking maybe of buying a condo. You know, a summer place.”

No "kind of" about it for me.. I LOVED it HERE and I love "Summer", especially with Ryan. These guys are a such a perfect fit! :)

Can't afford a condo but you can bet your.....I can and will buy some Sarah Madison!

A cute short story. I liked it wish there was a little more to the end. Also i wouldn't consider this role-play

Loved the whole story, but the ending was brilliant! I kept worrying throughout the story about Daniel getting caught spending too much time with the guests, or at least one in particular - LOL! Great combination of characters, story and sizzle:)

This was definitely one of my favourites from the 'Hot Summer Days' stories - I absolutely loved it, especially the ending. Thanks for such a wonderful read, Sarah!
This one is perfect for the hot summer days stories. It had the feel of a nice beach vacation. Lots of charm with a little twist at the end.

Nice read just a bit too insta-love and a bit too much like a fairytale for my preferences. Still enjoyed it.
Cute story! I love the little twist about Daniel's identity. So perfect. Ryan was adorable. Am I the only one who would love to read his series about a vampire detective?
This was a great short story! Very sweet about a guy who works at a hotel who meets someone visiting there. These 2 were adorable from the start and it was great to see how much they could enjoy each other and fall for each other in such a short time. I must admit that I had questions as the story went on (view spoiler) that by ...more

A really cute story with a nice ending.
I totally did not see that little twist at the end coming. I had to go back and re-read some of it only to see what was right in front of me the entire time.

This was a great story. Ryan is perfect. Daniel is the perfect beach bum/hotel employee.... an employee who comes across as not doing his job most of the time.... :)

This was a great read. Definitely one of my faves of the Hot Summer Days stories.

Oh, and the picture is HOT.
I really liked this story. So many anthology stories are just "they meet, exchange a few quips, have sex, maybe they'll stay together" and I simply won't take the time to read many of them anymore. I much prefer a story with some meat--which this one is! It has a little hurt/comfort, an interesting subplot with Ryan's agent, of course the hawt sex, and then a great twist at the end. I enjoy the multiple layers Sarah has in her stories.

This was a sweet story about a guy who works at a beach resort hotel who meets a guy staying there who happens to be a writer. Things happen very quickly for them, but it works out for them. This was a very enjoyable read, though it could have stood to be a bit longer. The ending felt a little rushed.
I liked this. It was sweet but like all these short stories, it was too short. However, I didn't feel like it was rushed or incomplete. Well done.
*3 1/2 Stars*

Nice, short read. Liked the story, liked the characters, but like always I wanted more.
I thought it was well written and I love Ryan and Daniel. Hate Marissa as should be!
Very sweet story with two characters who had great chemistry together.
Sweet Summer story, with a nice twist.
