Two irresistible boys. One unforgettable summer.
Lori can’t wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends–including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she’s always been just one of the guys. Now that she’s turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that’s not going to happen–not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.
Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori’s romantic summer melt into one hot mess?
I’m all for the cliché summer romances even though I don’t read the often. Since I had never gotten to this book last year I was pretty excited to pick this one up this summer. Jennifer Echols is also an awesome author so I was filled with double the excitement.
I love Lori’s attitude. She is confident, funny and someone I would love to be friends with. It find it funny because I read this novel at the exact same age as Lori (summer before Junior year). It helped me connect with the characters just this much more. At first Lori felt younger to me because I think she acts childish. Throughout the novel I felt her character mature a lot. By the end of both books (because there’s two in one) I could see an obvious difference in her. Yay for awesome character development!
At first I found the plan Lori and Adam had come up with really interested. Yes, it’s cliché but like always I knew there would be more than meets the eye. Eventually the faking and acting started to get tiresome. The second story had as much devious planning as the first one and I just saw it as history repeating.
Overall, this novel makes you smile. It’s one of those cliché summer romances you read for fun. If you’re into those I suggest Endless Summer. I know I’m jealous of Lori 😉
