I won an e-book copy of this book through Week 4 of The Romance Reviews 4th Anniversary celebration, and the following is my honest opinion for the book.
Like any high school senior, Hadley before heading to college to desires to have one last thing, a summer experience like no other she’s ever experienced. She knows once the summer days have gone she’ll be in New York City, far away her family and her best friend. Hadley also knows it will be quite enjoyable, especially since she’s now out of a undesirable relationship with her ex, however her ex still desires Hadley to be his.
While working at the camp she’s worked at for so long with her father, a former boyfriend, Will Carson, who’d left her abruptly two years before, reenters her life. At the two are chosen to work together as co-counselors, and it is here their relationship gets rekindled and the discoveries of the past, the secrets Will had kept from her slowly get revealed.
The interaction between these two will at times cause you to laugh, and at times will make you almost want to cry, as the author writing makes the story to move almost continuously. I would tend, given the ages of the book’s two main characters and it’s storyline, to classify this book as a prefect New Adult Contemporary romance novel. The entire book, especially given its title, and as others have already stated, would make a wonderful book for its intended audience to read this summer.
The only thing I would change regarding the book, if I’d been the author, would be to have a more eye-catching title. Aside from this, I see no reason not to give “This Summer” the 5 STARS I’m giving it.
