An Endless Summer (Summer #2)by C.J. DugganRelease Date: 07/17/13
Summary from Goodreads:
Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.
“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.”
I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.”
A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?”
After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henderson – the Onslow publican’s only daughter – is sent away to suffer a fate far worse than any other punishment:
Three years on, a now nineteen-year-old Amy returns to Onslow for the summer. What once was a cauldron of activity with live bands, hot meals and cold beers, the Onslow Hotel now lies dark, deserted and depressing. All fond childhood memories of loitering on the hotel stairs and eavesdropping on customers’ colourful conversations are in the distant past.
How had her dad let it come to this?
With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good.
In an endless summer, Amy soon realises that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.
Sean and Amy argue and smart off at one another, but the chemistry between them is undeniable. Amy is stubborn, independent, snarky, smart mouthed, and doesn't want to take Sean's charity. Sean is hot as hot can be, has a killer smile, and seems to know just what Amy needs and how to handle her, and she is exactly what he needs to. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow as the summer progressed, while they overcame so many obstacles, the biggest being their pride. It wasn't a love at first sight thing, but was something that definitely grew over time. It was also great getting to see what was going on with the other characters from The Boys of Summer(book one). C.J. Duggan has written the characters in such a way that you feel like you really know them all. The story is told from Amy's point of view, and captured my attention from beginning to end. I loved the Australian setting and the Australian lingo. An Endless Summer is a great story that is entertaining, romantic, and funny. It also ends really well, and their is an epilogue, which is one of my favorite things. If you are looking for a great book for the beach, vacation, or while just sitting around the house chilling, then An Endless Summer is just that. Check it out.
