A fantastic collection of short stories written by four amazing Aussie authors. Each story featured surfing: the spunky Aussie pro surfer chicks, the sexy South American pro surfer, The surf life saver in Cornwall and hot surfer guy at the ritzy resort.

Each writer's unique style came through, giving each story a unique voice. Carla's story is light and fun but super sexy, with similes that made me smile. Maria's is is confident and spunky. Alli's has South American accents that make me swoon. T

Six-star Weekend
The surprise ending really made this story shine. I like Sage, her uninhibitedness, her assertiveness, she's definitely making the most of her holiday time and when she collides with Harley - WOW what a vacation for both of them. Harley's all man, he is more than smitten with Sage. Sexy and sentimental. I wouldn't mind reading more of this lusty coupling. Caruso's amorous weekend spree will jar recollections of the readers own holiday escapades.

I picked this collection up this afternoon as I had read two of the authors’ works previously. It looked like it would be quite different from their other writing and I was in the mood for something different, so I thought I’d give it a go, even though it didn’t look like my usual type of read. Well, what a lovely surprise! I started and couldn’t stop. Four great stories here that are perfect for whiling away an afternoon. Definitely recommend!

A sassy read with sun, sand and surfers, exploring love, loss and ambition. A great way to get a taste of each of these romance authors in the collection.

Prepare yourself for some steamy surf action with Hot Stuff Surfing Love – after all, the first word of the first story in the quartet is ‘sex’. HarperCollins has brought together four talented writers to deliver a summer short story collection full of surprises, surf, swoons, sweat and sexiness. Caruso’s ‘Six-star Weekend’ has more than meets the eye – a woman with her mind on one thing for one weekend, and her sights are set on a hunky surfer who resembles an ‘extremely chiselled, handsome mer ...more
Four short stories about the sun, surf, sand and hot, hot romance. From the Great Barrier Reef to Tasmania, Rio De Janeiro and Cornwall these stories had just the right amount of everything! I ended up wanting to take my phone to the beach and read while watching others surf... Then I remembered I live in Darwin and right now it's too wet and no one is surfing!

I'll definitely be reading more by all four Aussie authors!

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I sometimes like to pick up compilation books to get a taste of authors that are new to me. Also, I find them a nice palate cleanser if I have a book hang over--nothing too strenuous. The trick is, getting enough of a story packed into such a small package.

It’s winter here so I saved this book for Valentine’s Day – and it was perfect for the occasion. Each of the four stories featured strong women entangled with complex, compelling men. Excellent romance. Good sex. Two thumbs up.

Review and rating to come.

My thoughts on the collection of stories overall:

Hot Stuff Surfing Love is filled with four stories by fantastic Aussie authors, filled with sexy surfers, strong female leads and a lot of tropical fun! They were all dripping with sex-appeal to bring a quick, fun, sexy romance story. I would love to see all four of them continued into a full length novel, but thoroughly enjoyed the shorts as they were.

5 stars for this fun tropical beachy read. Pass me a piña colada!

Oh, what a beautiful collection of short stories by four Aussie authors.

My first time reading anything by these writers and it certainly won't be my last. They can count on me reading/buying all of their works.

All four stories are a sweet, sassy and delightful read and not to mention a whole lot of hero hotness!
But, each hero also having wonderful qualities that we all like to see in a man - a kind, caring, loving and gentle nature/heart.

Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading short s
