Seducing Summer based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
SEDUCING SUMMER is the second book by Toni Blake for Harlequin. She has once again proven that she deserves recognition for her wonderful talent in weaving a story that is hard to put down.
SEDUCING SUMMER is about a couple, Summer Avery and Brett Ford. She is a career woman with no time for marriage and babies. She doesn¿t want to be dependent on anyone. He is an up and coming architect that has the chance for a great career opportunity. They meet and have one night together. But that one night creates a baby.
This is where the conflict begins. He wants to get married and is willing to give up his dream. She is unwilling at first. She wants to remain independent and raise the child without a husband. He woos her and finally convinces her that getting married is the right thing to do. Then she learns what he gave up¿
Summer, the heroine, was sometimes hard to take. She is not your typical romance book heroine. Some readers might be put off by her attitude. Brett, however, is a Prince Charming in disguise. He is thoughtful, caring, and will do just about anything for Summer and his baby.
This is an emotional story of two people, who in the end, realize all their dreams can come true.
If you are looking for a different type of ¿she¿s pregnant¿ story, then I highly recommend that you read SEDUCING SUMMER.
At thirty years of age, Cincinnati resident Summer Avery is content with her life though she has no man in it. After work, Summer meets one of her employees, Tina Conway, at a happy hour. However, at the bar, Summer surprises herself when she cannot keep her eyes off of ¿Mr. Mysterious Eyes¿, a confident individual playing pool with his buddies. As Summer prepares to leave, Mr. Mysterious Eyes comes over to say hello to Tina. Tina introduces Brett Ford, a person she has not seen in over a decade, to Summer. Though interested, Summer rejects Brett¿s efforts to see her again. When her car fails, Summer goes with Brett into his apartment. One thing leads to another and they soon make love. Not long afterwards, Summer learns she is pregnant on what she considers a one night mistake, but he feels is the beginning of a beautiful relationship. SEDUCING SUMMER is an enjoyable contemporary romance starring two obviously in love individuals. The skirmishes with Brett trying to persuade Summer that they can have fun, enjoy non-work time, and be in love are well designed and entertain the reader. Everyone will relish the positive attitude of ¿Mr. Mysterious Eyes¿, but be irritated with Summer¿s wintry reluctance even though her rejections propel the story line along while providing some of the emotions that terrific Toni Blake wants her readers to feel. By successfully doing this within a marvelously written plot, Ms. Blake seduces her audience with this wonderful romance that shows why she is one of the top genre authors. Harriet Klausner
