Overview

Summer has always looked forward to spending her summers at her Aunt's beach house with the Donovans. To her, summers at Aunt Sookie's beach house was magical, especially getting to spend time with the Donovans - her best friend Rachel and Rachel's brothers Nathaniel, and Drew. Here at Aunt Sookie's beach house, they can be anyone and anything they dreamed. For Summer, she had always wished to become as pretty as Rachel and for her brothers to think of her as more than Rachel's friend. For Nat and Drew, summers at Aunt Sookie's beach house meant fun and escape, a place where they go to with their mom and sister for the summer, away from city life. They never thought this summer would be different. They never thought things would change as much as they did...and it all began with them falling for and loving Summer.

"The perfect summer read"
YA Fiction Book Reviews - S. Blogger
"Not only did it keep me in suspense of what was happening, but the character's responses were believable. Gow really impressed me with this book and I am looking forward to reading her other books."
Amazon Reviews - Ronesha Carley
This is the best book I've read in a long time. I rated it 5 stars because this book was pure genius. And I'm totally Team Drew!! <3

I will read anything from the prolific Kailin Gow in any genres. Now only does she have hundreds of books, but they are addicting. I have spent many nights staying up trying to finish a series. You read one book, you have to read the next. I am not the only lifelong fan. My sister and cousins are all reading her. There's vintage Kailin Gow and then there's her newest releases. You have to read them all!

Will be a summer classic like Beaches, but edgy and real. The Donovans are the sexiest brothers. Oh my!

Beach read classic!

Love this book. I read it every summer with my friends. We are a Team Drew fan but with the last couple of books in the series, I am wavering towards Nat. Holy Hotness these Donovan brothers are incredible. Loving Summer is destined to be a summer beach classic with a film coming out and more books coming out.

Astor would be my choice, but Drew is just a sweetie with his crush on Summer all these years.

Kailin Gow not only has a Must Read classic summer beach book here, but one willing to look into tough issues like suicide, divorce, depression. One of my ultimate favorite series.
