    Walker is a Genius!

    Lovestruck Summer is one of my all time favorite books. Walker is a genius! This is the way romantic comedy is supposed to be written. Breezy, charming, fun, kicky & memorable.

    I feel butterflies flitting in my stomach just thinking about this darling treasure.
    Priscilla Quinn Parker ~ Quinn ~ is a fiery, saucy, indie music lovin' chick.

    " I live my life in headphones. That way, I can control what I let in."


    Walker captured the essence of Quinn & created an impressive spitfire. She is just fun!

    I laughed, cried, fell in love & had a blast!

    With an industry over saturated w/ paranormal this & paranormal that, Walker's Lovestruck Summer is a refreshing sparkling romantic getaway.

    Walker is one gifted writer, she's able to create appealing, invigorating, whimsical three- dimensional characters who rocket off the page.

    Quinn is simply remarkable, utterly misguided & thoroughly magnetizing. Quinn's progression from a snotty show-off into a more unbiased young woman was skillfully devised.



    Penny aka "Party Penny" is more than Quinn's cousin or your typical sorority babe. She has her own depth, appeal & spunk! I am eager to read more about Penny & hope Walker considers revisiting this character again. *Hint* ; ).

    Penny's dog, Miss Tiara is a riot!

    Penny's irritating frat-boy/wannabe-cowboy friend & next door neighbor, Russ (sigh) is the guy that no matter how hard Quinn tries she just can't seem to shake. Russ is the one who stimulates her senses, makes her question her beliefs & makes her feel. Russ is always calling Quinn "Priscilla" which steams her to no end. When he starts calling her "Cilla", I am in love ; 9! Let me just say, I so wanted to be Quinn ; )!

    Chrissy, Penny's friend & neighbor ~ Russ's roommate ~ is more than a buxom, dippy blonde. She definitely is the definition of "never judge a book by its cover".

    Walker delivered a striking punch in this feel good read. Walker filled this 272 page light read w/ more substance than a 500 page tome. Brava, Walker!

    There has been a bit of buzz on the cover. Some love the bubble gum cover others roll their eyes @ the cutesy presentation; the cover depicts summer romance in the HarperTeen "Beach Reads" category. I love it! I love the "beachy" look & the colors are darling! Afterall, it captures the essence of Austin's Barton Springs perfectly.

    You really should grab a copy of Lovestruck Summer. Whenever you need a pick me up, escape or to just feel good inside, Walker's Lovestruck Summer is it.

    Romantic Comedy at Its Finest!

    I love romantic comedies. They are the best to read when looking for something light and fun. And since I'm always looking for that, this book was perfect. I laughed, I almost cried, and just had an all around good time reading it.

    What I loved about this novel was that it was strictly a romantic comedy. It has a lot of depth to it! Quinn has to question everything she's thought about herself, boys, and just people in general. It really makes you wonder if you're selling yourself, and others, short like Quinn. Maybe I was more susceptible to this because I've been wondering about that very thing here lately. Like Quinn comes to realize, I've been realizing lately that I don't want to be that person that makes fun of the bubble gum pink sorority girls or other people who seem to fit a stereotype but may have more to offer. So in that capacity, this novel really struck a chord with me (musical pun not intended but kind of cute now that I think about it!).

    For a romantic comedy, it is also less predictable than you would think. I might just be easily thrown, but I really did question at times if the book would end how I felt it should. Of course it does, but it's realistic.

    So, this novel has comedy, romance, depth, and moments of unpredictability for those readers who tire of knowing how a book will end (but the journey is what matters anyway, right?). I highly recommend this as a perfect summer read. I have a feeling I might even reread it later this summer, it's that good!

    Dont Jude It By Its Cover.

    okay so this isnt really a full review, but its a pre-read review.
    so, i pre-read this book online.. which was a BIG mistake! because now im HOOKED i read up to chapter four annd i wanna keep reading, but ill have to wait til tomorrow to buy it. trust me the cover may be a total turnoff to some of youu, like it was to me.. but when youu start reading it, you'll get hooked! this book so far was really interesting it drew me in right from the start. I could really relate to this story, im always listening to my ipod. i love indie but i love all music, lol including country. Percilla oops i mean Quinn is an interesting character. i love melissa walker's description of all of the characters. LOL, Miss. Tiara! now that's a funny dog. This story is very intriguing, annd id reccomend it to anyone looking for an excellient read. Cant wait to finish this tomorrow! Literally, i want to finish it now. I was even thinking about buying the ebook, but its too bad i like to buy my books just to have them(=
