ARC BOOK REVIEW: The Fling by M. Robinson (review by Dana)



Ok, can I be completely honest here without getting rocks thrown at me? I read this book because this seems to be a popular author, I had never read her before, and I was curious. The storyline was right up my alley. However, I could not get into it much. The characters were so young and incredibly immature, the kids were total brats (total turnoff!), and I couldn’t stand it, and the word “twins” was repeated to excess. I didn’t feel any connection to any of the characters, and I didn’t think they were connected to each other either. The h and H are in a serious relationship for weeks and weeks, and she is not willing to share that she is a mother of twins. Not a word. It’s all my twins this and my twins that, just never to him. He finally finds out, not from her, and then she’s mad at him, excuse being that she didn’t know he liked kids. At the end where it all went to hell in a hand basket, the complete exaggeration of her reaction to things just turned me off even more.
Anyways, in the end, I guess this was just not my kind of read. What were supposed to be all these humorous situations, they just fell flat for me, and I wanted to roll my eyes. Again, given everybody’s age, I guess it would be expected. But I just couldn’t get into it at all.

Review by Dana

Release Date: May 27

From Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson comes a new stand-alone romantic comedy.

What happens when you make a pact with your boys to stay single and never fall in love? 

Well, you get the Playboy Pact.


I was the playmaker. The one with the best moves, the best lines. I was the best at everything… 

And I mean, everything. 

There was no woman immune to my charm. To my looks. To my bed-hopping ways. 


It was supposed to be easy. A quick, fun, mind-blowing night where she screamed out my name in ecstasy. 


No feelings.

No past.

No strings attached.


I broke the rules.

I broke the pact.


I fell for her smile. 

Her laugh.

Our instant connection. 

Except, I never expected to fall in love. 


Especially with a single mom…


Of twins.
