A Day Away is a short story about two friends who spend the day together and decide to take their relationship up to the next level. Kate picks a secluded beach for their day and packs a delicious basket for lunch. After they eat, she flirts with Nate and has him rub oil all over her body. The story is told from his perspective. He is not sure if she wants to remain friends or get romantic. As the day progresses, they go swimming in the beach. Let's just say they get together. This book is a series and I read the first installment. It was well written, erotic, and entertaining. I liked the characters and want to know more about them. Overall, I would give this short a 5/5 star rating for romance lovers.
