A nice start to a new series that was easy to read and had some really great characters. Mixing the whole forbidden aspect and a somewhat marriage of convenience to this sort-of/kind-of second-chance romance gave this love story some additional twists and depth. Owen and Maggie have been meant for each other for forever…there’s just been too many things in their way, namely the feud that erupted between their families. A feud that neither of them quite know the details of, but one that has had them keeping their distance from one another even though the pull of attraction has been there since they were kids. Maggie was wonderful. After losing her mother, I loved that she stepped up to become so involved in the family business. I could feel her pain at not being able to convince her dad to make changes to keep the business moving forward – and her pain at knowing that financially things were not good and might not ever turn around. Owen has also become part of his family’s business, doing everything he can to keep the approval of his sometimes-volatile father – and he knows the price he will pay if he fails since his father has already disowned his brother Jonathan for not living up to his expectations. I totally understood his need to stay away from Maggie and loved when he decided that he couldn’t stay away any longer and needed to help her. I also understood his need to keep the truth from his father, but I do wish he would have confided in her his plan once everything was set in place and things were more than real between them. I absolutely loved the cast of characters in this book and relationships with one another that they share. The girls being BFFFs and calling each other out on their BS was great, and I loved getting to see the strength in Owen and his brother Jonathan’s relationship, despite having their father disown Jonathan. This cast of characters added so much to this book and has certainly laid the groundwork for future books in the series. This was an easy read with a fairly straight forward plot, but there were some twists and reveals in this book that kept things moving. And I absolutely loved the way this ended – I don’t think I would have enjoyed the book as much if things didn’t end as they did! This is the perfect book for your beach bag or to curl up with when you need a happy ever after with a little bit of angst and a whole lot of great characters!

The book is a very nice summer read. The romance gives a warm fuzzy feeling. It was nice that Maggie and Owen started out as friends. This usually provides a good basis for a lasting relationship, which was shown. The characters were well developed and the writing had great descriptions, allowing me to visualize everything. I would recommend this book to someone who likes contemporary romance books. I very much enjoyed it. I received this book as an ARC.

Childhood friends ripped apart by feuding parents, Owen and Maggie's encounter as adults sparks an attraction that refuses to be put out. Maggie needs help saving the family business. Owen is more than willing to be that help, but helping could ruin the relationship he has with his father. Maggie's relationship with her dad is strained as she sees change is necessary for the family business while he sees it as dishonoring what his wife worked hard to achieve. The line between friends and enemies isn't easy to define when hatred is projected. Neither Owen nor Maggie truly hated one another. That hostility lay firmly between their parents but it filtered into their children. There's an underlying of distrust from Maggie to Owen, warranted only by the family feud. In truth, I didn't feel it was at all warranted. It wasn't a feeling she could truly claim for herself as she was a victim by circumstance. This story reminded me of Romeo and Juliet. Forbidden love. Midnight rendezvous. Balcony worthy moments of love. Unlike that ill-fated couple though, Owen and Maggie lived to tell the tale. This isn't a deeply complex story. It isn't riddled with darkness. There is give and take. There's a struggle to find personal happiness amidst family happiness. There's taking a chance, risking it all for the sake of love and forever. It's a satisfying read and a nice introduction to this series. 3.5* Received from publisher for an honest review

One Summer Night first won me over with the pretty cover. I adore the beach so anything with a beach feel is an instant must read for me. Luckily, One Summer Night has much more to it than just a pretty cover. Sweet, romantic, and charming, One Summer Night is the perfect enemies to lovers romance. One Summer Night introduces the alternating perspectives of Maggie Sinclair and Owen Pierce, two adults who've been caught in the crossfire of their fathers' feud since they were children. I liked Maggie from the moment she was introduced. She was loyal, sweet as sugar, and determined. Better yet, she was a good friend, daughter, and employer. It added a lot to her character to see her relationships with her friends, father, and employees develop over the course of the book; however, I will say nothing had me chuckling more than when her and her best friends got together. They were a funny crew. I enjoyed getting to know Owen as well. Fierce, protective, and ambitious, Owen is the prime example of a swoon-worthy male lead. I loved seeing him and Maggie interact, and just like with Maggie, I love that Caridad Pineiro added in a special bond between Owen and someone else - in this case, his brother. The plot in One Summer Night was the typical enemies to lovers romance, but as someone who never gets old of that step-up, I eagerly ate up every word of it. It was interesting to learn about what the feud was about. It wasn't revealed at the start so there was some time to play around with some theories. I also enjoyed that Owen and Maggie's struggles at work where chronicled. I think in some ways there something everyone can relate to. The constant switch between settings also had me happy. I loved the combo between the bustling streets of New York City and the idyllic, picture perfect beach house setting. Plus it didn't hurt that Caridad's description were rich. Last but not least, the romance was great. I enjoyed the steamy will-they-or-won't they aspect in the beginning, and it was fun to see the drama from what Owen was hiding unfold. One Summer Night is a perfect for readers of the romance genre, especially those like me who love a good setting! I simply can't wait to see who's story is up next. I'm hoping for Connie and Jonathon (I think I know what she's hiding at the end, and if I'm right, it's certainly going to make for an interesting time!). Grade: B

My Review: I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have a few books by Pineiro waiting to be read on my shelf and I will be meeting her at the Fall in Love with New England convention coming up this weekend, so I really wanted to read her most recent release first. While the title denotes to summer, the setting is more of a fall to winter setting, which was perfect for me. It was a little predictable with a lot of the familiar issues that arise in contemporary romance to put a road block up in the couple's path. With that said, Pineiro did turn the marriage of convenience on its head a bit and that was great to see. I did enjoy the characters, and really connected with Maggie's go get them, all business attitude, but I must say that some of the side characters really captured my attention. I really enjoyed Jonathan and the brother relationship with Owen was fantastic, I am also a little attached to Carlo already and can't wait to get to that book. My Rating: While this was a great romance for this time of year and I enjoyed the setting and characters, I just was never really able to fully settle into the story. I kept picking it up and putting it down so it took me far longer than normal to read. I give this one a rating of Three Paws.

One Summer Night is a beautiful story that is well written. Maggie Sinclair and Owen Pierce are childhood friends whose lives fell apart after Maggie's mother passed away. They shared a stolen kiss when they were 18, and neither one of them forgot how the kiss made them feel. Flash forward to present time ... Maggie and Owen are always running into each other. They have a Romeo and Juliet kind of romance. However, the family feud won't keep them apart because their love is meant to be. I received an ARC from Sourcebooks Casablanca, and volunteered to review an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

One Summer Night by Caridad Pineiro At the Shore #1 This book begins and ends with a wedding. It has ups and downs. It is a bit like a modern day Romeo and Juliet story without the death of both the main characters and the families in discord is all due to their fathers having a falling out over 30 years before the story begins. Rachel is dealing with a family company on the brink of disaster with a father unwilling to move in a direction that might save the business. She has friends that will star in the future books of the series but are also there to support her during the telling of her story. Owen also has a huge company that he runs with his father but where his father’s goal is to break Maggie’s father Owen’s is quite different. In fact, he wants to HELP Maggie an in doing so will also help her father. Owen and Rachel do have a chance at a happily ever after IF they can get all their ducks in a row…well…get them BACK in a row and if both are willing to listen to their hearts. This is a book I believe will appeal to New Adult readers and those that like a fairly predictable plot without any major dramas to contend with. Thank you to NetGalley and Barclay Publicity for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

One Summer Night is the first book in the new At the Shore series by Caridad Piñeiro. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review from Barclay Publishing via Netgalley. Maggie and Owen were childhood friends. They played together as children when their respective families visited the shore where they were next door neighbors for many Summers until some falling out happened between their fathers. Their fathers had been best friends when something broke the friendship. Neither Owen or Maggie is quite sure of the whole story, but, they do know that it involves several high-valued properties that the two friends planned to invest in together until Maggie's dad did something different. Whatever happened each man has passed the feud on through their children. Skip to Maggie and Owen as adults, both working in their family's business. Owen's family's business is excelling and Maggie's family's business is in trouble. Her father will not change with the times and continues to make the same choices that are no longer viable in a .com era where people do not have to visit a storefront to purchase anything any longer. He has not grasped the change very well and is steadfast in his denial of any changes that Maggie wants to make. Maggie has decided to try and show him what the retail business they own with a flagship store on 5th avenue in New York, could be now with a blend of the traditional and the modern. She needs an infusion of cash to get it off the ground. Owen has the cash and his father still wants those properties and he doesn't care who he has to hurt to get them. Owen and Maggie's friendship could be much more if their fathers' feud was not in the way. One Summer Night is the story of two adult children trying to branch out on their own while keeping one foot firmly rooted to their respective families. The question is can they stand out on their own enough to give their relationship a chance or will they let the feud interfere. It is a great, romantic start to a new series. I look forward to seeing where the story goes next and I have a feeling I just might know.

One Summer Night was just the light read I was looking for. Told from dual points of view, Maggie and Owen’s story will grab you from the first page and will leave you begging for more. From the moment we meet Maggie and Owen, the sparks between the two of them are instant. There is history there and a connection that is just begging to be explored. The only problem….their families can’t stand each other. Despite their family issues, Maggie and Owen begin to spend time with one another. It’s risky. It’s complicated. But, some of the best risks are worth taking. Will Maggie and Owen take a chance on each other or will their family rivalries throw everything away? There’s only one way to find out…. Overall, I really enjoyed One Summer Night. I thought the story-line was a lot of fun and was excited to see where Owen and Maggie’s story was going to go. I enjoyed the slow burn to Maggie and Owen’s relationship. The sparks were there, but I appreciated that these two didn’t immediately jump in. And to me that made the chemistry between the two of them burn hotter. You just knew they would be off the charts together, you just had to wait for them to give in and take the jump. One Summer Night is well written and is the perfect light read. One Summer Night has just the right balance of family drama, a touch of angst and just the right amount of sexiness. I think this series is off to a promising start and I’m excited to see where it will go next.
