Summer rages on in Crescent Cove, but Haley Sullivan can't seem to rescue Drenaline Surf's sinking reputation. Surfers are kicked out of events. A.J.'s criminal record is leaked. Plans for a second Drenaline Surf store are foiled.
With Vin's recent departure and Colby's dirty laundry displayed on the world's largest clothes line, Haley is barely hanging on. The team is desperate to save the store and Shark's legacy in the surf community, but someone is making waves to stop them and doesn't care who goes down with the ship.
The only sanity Haley has left is Topher Brooks, her ex-boyfriend's younger brother. While the tabloids pick apart their relationship, she struggles to hang on to the one thing that feels real to her, but surf world drama and matters of the heart are two entirely different things. If the blackmailer doesn't bring her down first, her feelings for the Brooks brothers just might.
(Always Summer is book #3 in the Drenaline Surf series.)

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Drenaline Surf series is one of those series you can’t put down and will want to read straight through. Always Summer follows Haley in the aftermath of some events that threaten her new beginning in Crescent Cove with Drenaline Surf, and it’s quite the crazy ride full of mystery and mayhem as secrets are revealed to the world and everyone struggles with soiled reputations while trying to stay afloat in the surf world. I didn’t stay long out of the Drenaline Surf Series and started reading Always Summer a few days after I finished Rough Waters because I couldn’t wait. I just love Haley, her roommates, and the Hooligans so much that I miss them now that I’m through. Always Summer stepped up a notch in the mystery and drama, and I had so many feelings. I was literally angry that someone was trying to mess with my friends/peeps/squad/surf family. Nikki always manages to send me on a rollercoaster ride when it comes to the characters I love. One minute I love a love interest, and then the next, I want to slap some sense into them. My favorite scenes took place between Haley and Colby, the surfer she originally chased across the country. They’re two outsiders in a world where everyone sticks together, and I loved that about them. I loved that they stuck together when everything was falling apart. The dynamic friendships of the Drenaline Surf Series are what I love most and keeps me reading. Nikki’s Always Summer gives me major friendship goals. If you love young adult contemporary with mystery and drama, stories of friendship, summer reads, and hot surfers, Always Summer is perfect for you.
