Niki's summer plans are ruined when she finds out that she isn't able to hang out with her best friend, Blair, at Bella Island, since she isn't "mature" enough. But her parents do think it's time for Niki to learn some responsibility, and so they decide for her that she will work with them, along with her twin brothers, at their shop, making and delivering sandwiches.

But maybe working at her parents' deli isn't so bad after all, when one fateful day, Niki accidentally bumps into a boy, Daniel, with her bike. Instantly, there seems to be a click between the two, but the only problem is, Niki believes that she is the only one who feels something between them.

With these mixed-up feelings, things go from confusing to even worse when she discovers that her arch-enemy is hired by her parents to help out at the deli. If only they knew that they weren't friends anymore. But Niki will soon find out that everything happens for a reason, and this summer will be more than she could ever ask for.

The second book in the new pseudo-series I HEART BIKINIS makes you appreciate puppy love even more - and you just can't help but to feel happy once you're done reading ISLAND SUMMER. Jeanine Le Ny captures the funny side of new, teen love that just leaves you satisfied and wanting more. Another great beach read that should be located in every bag this summer.

I thought this was a cute book. It had a predictable plot and traditional characters. Overall I thought it was well written and it flowed nicely. I didn't think it was an outstanding book but I would recommend it to others. GOOD book.

For Nikki, home is the decidedly un-posh Pelican Island where she spends the summer working at ther parents shop delivering sandwiches by bicycle. One of her delivers goes embarrassingly awry, but at least she gets something out of it. She meets Daniel. There seems to be an immediate connection, but Nikki cn't tell if Daniel feels the same way she does. Is it summer love or something more? Find out!!!

Nikki thinks her summer is going to be boring because she has to work in the family deli, but then she meets Daniel while delivering sandwiches and the summer turns from boring to romantic! This book was so sweet and funny i didn't want it to end. Can't wait for the next one!
