It’s the final night of her summer job on Maui. Her last chance to see him alone. Maggie plans to make it a night she’ll never forget - one of amazingly hot sex with her coworker Gabe.

Cute and pretty hot, but a tad too short. Would've been nice to see Gabe and Maggie after the vacation. Would've been nice to see if there was an "after-vacation" for them.

One of the better Naught Nooners. Had a bit of romance and wasn't just a sexfest.

Even for a Naughty Nooner short Maui Heat is tedious, mainly because Ms. Thatcher attempts to make it into an actual story. Unfortunately her attempt to tell a story is negated by the fact that the story she tries to tell is not at all interesting. Just as the get it on is coming Gabe is pulled away to break up a fight somewhere, and Maggie is left all on her own, thinking he will never come back and getting groped be a drunk who seems to have a little more interest in her than her manly stud ...more

This was a whole lot of set-up with one very caring and hot love scene. It obviously ought to lead to a firm relationship between two nice people - the hero seems to be coloured from the description - not something you would get from the cover.
Since the blurb for the longer book was that they meet again after 15 years, I would say something went wrong.
It's about 30 pages and quite nice for a freebie. Makes me interested in the real novel.

It's a short read as are these freebie brands, I'm going to assume the way the author describes the story that Gabe and Maggie are around 20, 21 so that didn't make it believable to me Maggie was so pure, naive among other things. There was nothing wrong with it but but I didn't get too much into it. If your looking for that connection then not for you short story so you would get that emotional attachment.

This was a good freebie. I would've liked it to have been longer, but it was a short story. I would like to read the next book to see how it all ends up. This was a little emotional, steamy, not much humor, and kinda touching/sad in how it ends. Not really a waste of time but good for a quick anytime read. Enjoy

Warning: This is an erotic novel. This has a lot of story for a quick romance, I like that. I know erotica generally is just sex so I am always happy when the author puts little more thought into he relationship they just part A and part B. So again this, like the name on the cover art, is just that a lunch break read. When you want a quick escape and a little naughty along with it.

This was a short story about summer romances and first loves. However, it is an extremely short story and I wasn't able to connect that much with the characters. I liked how sweet it was, and that while present, sex wasn't the be all/end all to their connection. I'm willing to give the second one a shot though!

Short, hot, and sweet but the ending was a little lax for me. Nice story but the ending just felt rushed and cut off. Will read another of Ari's books because she has great concepts and can tell a good story. Just hoping that the next one is a tad longer with a complete ending.

Maui Heat

Freezing in the cold is not for me. I'd love to be in the sun and sand of Maui.
This story takes on what a summer job & a summer fling should be, hot...

es una historia super corta, como un preambulo para la segunda parte....
no cuenta mucho de ellos, pero si lo que "quieren"

Good short read. Makes a person wonder what they might of missed by not going away during summer vacations while in college. This was a free book in the Kindle store.

Sorry I can't rate it better. When I get a book I at least expect a story. Yes, I know this is a "Naughty Nooners". but I expected a little bit of a story line.
