Lissa's Review: Fling Club (Serendipity #1) by Tara Brown
publisher via netgalley PUBLISHER: Skyscape RELEASED: August 14, 2018 GENRE: New Adult, romance LENGTH: 304 pages FORMAT: ebook, paperback
For the young, rich, and beautiful, summertime in the Hamptons means one thing: Fling Club. Only this time, Cherry Kennedy won’t be selecting a boy for a fleeting romance. Nope, this season, Cherry is out for revenge. Her target? The Fling Club founder and society darling who slept with Cherry’s now-very-ex-boyfriend. And all Cherry needs is the perfect guy for her plan…
Ashley Jardine can’t afford to refuse. He scored almost a full ride to MIT. But that almost still costs a lot. And this is so much money for a little game of revenge and a chance—albeit short—to live the high life. Here, rich girls rule the shore, and everyone has a role to play. Only nothing in the job description warned Ashley that the redhead who’s running the scheme would be so crazy. And cute. Or that he wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about her.
Now, everything is going according to plan—until an unexpected attraction raises the stakes. It’s enough to turn the perfect payback into absolute heartbreak. FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Fling Club is an enjoyable read. While revenge can be fun, It’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Cherry has lived the luxurious life, huge houses, old money and summers in the Hamptons. One person she didn’t ever think she’d meet was Ashley. The nerdy guy from MIT. There’s a plan for revenge, and they're all in the mix. I always try to write my reviews with little spoilers as possible. I think what I liked most about this story. Is that Cherry grew as a character. She goes from this Rich girl, who doesn’t stand up for herself. To a girl who knows exactly what she wants. Even though, the basis of the story is revenge. I find that all of them found themselves in the process. I’ve read Tara Brown before, and I loved what I had read. She has a way of building a story that you're able to lose yourself in it. The only reason this didn’t get a five, is that I didn’t emotionally connect with the characters. But there was never a moment that I wanted to stop reading. Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars.
