Length: 47,000 words approx.


A summer fling is an ideal cure for a broken heart. But when it's with your best friend, things get complicated.

When Adam is dumped by his boyfriend, a week away at a beach resort seems like a great opportunity to get over his ex. Sun, sea, and no-strings sex will be just the boost he needs to move on with his life.

Adam's best friend, Finn, agrees to accompany him at short notice. Finn's had a crush on Adam for years, but is determined to put his feelings aside and be the perfect wingman in Adam's time of crisis.

A spontaneous threesome with another guy forces Adam and Finn to confront their attraction to each other. Having a holiday fling together wasn't part of the plan, and as their trip heats up, they soon realise that one night of fun won't be enough for either of them.

The passion might be scorching, but their hearts and friendship are on the line. If their romance is going to survive the flight home, they have to be honest about what they want.


If you're looking for a sweet read that will pull you into summer then this is the book for you. I had lots of fun reading Summer Heat. Very low angst, steamy sexy times, friends to lovers.... What's not to love?

Adam's heart is broken after being dumped. And when we hurt we go to the person who makes us feel better. In Adam's case that's his best friend, Finn. Adam and Finn's journey is so adorable. Finn who was always attracted to Adam, Adam who's blind to it all. 

Jay Northcote always adds a perfect amount of romantic suspense to things and even though you know how this will turnout; you convince yourself you don't. Just so you can be surprised. Just so you can giggle excitedly when the romantic climax happens!

This story will make you smile and feel all the awesome feelings. I would have loved an epilogue though. Just because my curiosity of where are they now got the better of me.

Author Bio

Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England. He comes from a family of writers, but always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed him by. He spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.

One day, Jay decided to try and write a short story—just to see if he could—and found it rather addictive. He hasn’t stopped writing since.

Jay writes contemporary romance about men who fall in love with other men. He has five books published by Dreamspinner Press, and also self-publishes under the imprint Jaybird Press. Many of his books are now available as audiobooks.

Jay is transgender and was formerly known as she/her.
