This week my book boyfriend is Ringer from C.J. Duggan's Summer Series, which is one of my favorites.  I'd met Ringer in the earlier books, but I completely fell in love with everything about him in his book and I think you will to.  

Ringer (Summer #3.5)
by C.J. Duggan

Contemporary Romance

    They say it’s the quiet ones you have to worry about, and she was quiet, very quiet—when she wasn’t busy despising me with a burning passion.

Ringo ‘Ringer’ James has a no-strings-attached policy.

Love them, leave them, and remain the eternal bachelor. 

After a summer in which every one of his mates has succumbed to settling down, or so it seemed, Ringer is on the lookout for a quick exit. Having had enough of the stomach-turning love fest witnessed over the past three months, Ringer jumps at the opportunity to help out his mate, Max, by heading to Max’s dad’s property for a working holiday. 

It’s just what he’s looking for. A remote, dusty homestead in Ballan, with only hard work, a cold beer and a comfy bed to worry about – no women.

Until Miranda Henry.

        The privately educated daughter of his boss has returned home from overseas and things are about to get very complicated, very fast. As summer draws to its end, Ringer is about to learn that sometimes attraction defies all logic, and that there really is such a thing as ‘enemies with benefits.’ 

Ringer is Book #4 in C.J’s mature young adult SUMMER SERIES, a series filled with intoxicatingly sweet romances and addictive, swoon worthy characters. The Summer Series is set in Onslow and it is here where you will meet the ruggedly handsome Onslow Boys - a group of men SO HOT in appearance and so likable in personality that’ll leave you craving MORE. Now imagine that, set it against a sizzling hot Australian background, fill it with good old Australian humour and there you have the Summer Series!

 "Stop being such a snappy arsehole, Ringo."
Here we go.  It would never be the words snappy or arsehole that made my blood boil;  I had become quite accustomed to those.  It was the fact that he called me by my actual name - something he know only my parents used when I was in the shit........
Yeah, well, fuck that for a joke.  I was out of here.
I flipped on my Oakleys from the top of my head and offered my best 'fuck-you grin.'
Sean shook his head, but a smile creased the corner of his mouth.
"You need to get laid Ringer, you're turning into a grump old prick."
Rocking on the back legs of the chair in front of the shearers' huts, I had wasted little time relocating myself to the out building.  No matter how big the house was, it was never going to be big enough for Miranda Henry and me.  The wench should have come with a warning label.
THe house was spacious, grand, but I never felt anything more than claustrophobic in it, now more so that the older devil child had returned.......I couldn't have cared less about her eyes, they no doubt shot laser beams from them anyway.

They say it is the quiet ones you have to worry about, and she was quiet, very quiet - when she wan't busy despising me with a burning passion.  

.......You're more than that.  You're the most beautiful, infuriating person I have ever me in my life......

You can see my review here.  


  1. I read the first book in this series recently and loved it. I need to read the others now. Ringer was great in the first book and I definitely need to be reacquainted with the Oslow Boys!

  2. I haven't read this series but Rigger sounds like he needs to be met! I'd probably let him rev his engine. Hehe. Great pick.

  3. Ringer sounds great! I love those photos and you defintely have be wanting to read this. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I need to catch up with this series! Ringer sounds great!
