Amy is a young nursing student nearing graduation who takes up an opportunity to attend a seminar in Greece. Bored with her day to day life, she jumps at the opportunity of adventure and falls for the professor running the seminar, Dimitrios, a married man. Dimitrios' wife gives her blessing that Amy pursue her feelings and the two embark on an affair.
All the right elements are there, however I did feel that it all just happened too easily for Amy. That said, the story really picks up at the halfway point, complete with a dramatic climax. Although I did pick up hints of what was happening, I still enjoyed the outcome of the story, and honestly, it turned out darker than expected. That was a nice twist.
Amy's relationship with Dimitrios is sweet and hot all at once. The two exude love and commitment from the very beginning which will have you pining for them until the very end.
Written in almost a novella style, The Fling is a quick and enjoyable read. In fact, I could see it adapted into a longer length novel, with more time spent on the building tension between Dimitrios and Amy, and even more on the beautiful backdrop of Greece.
Lawson has provided a story of real love at first sight, and hooked us in with a dark twist.
I'll be first in line to see what she comes up with next.
