"One Summer Night is the perfect escape! It's tender, funny and sexy, with wonderful characters you'll fall in love with. You can't go wrong with Caridad Pineiro."—RAEANNE THAYNE, USA Today bestselling author

She knows the kind of man he is:
The kind who breaks hearts.
But a hot summer at the Jersey Shore
Might be just what they need to light up their lives...

As the only daughter of a single mom, Connie Reyes swore she would never put herself in a similar position. But when she runs into oh—so-tempting Jonathan Pierce at a wedding, she knows she must stay away. She'll fall for him—hard. And he's not the type to stick around. So far the only loyalty he's shown is to his rescued puppy.

Ever since he left town after their teenage fling, Jonathan hasn't been able to forget about Connie. He can't wait to show her the man he's become. And when the night finally comes, their mutual desire will lead to unexpected consequences...

Connie and Jon can’t be more different. She follow the rules, college, a job, a place to settle. Jonathan can’t stay for long in a place, he doesn’t know what will bring his future. So after a summer romance they fall apart. Seven years later they paths cross again and the attraction is still ther. But have they a chance to be together? They have to face their past and come clean in order to be have their happi ever after. A sweet love story about love, friendship, forgiviness nd second chances. I received a free copy of this book from AXP books and voluntarily read and review it.

I enjoyed this story thoroughly. Connie and Jonathan's chemistry and connection is undeniable and explosive. Jonathan is a self made man. Not following the footsteps his father wanted he became independently wealthy. He's sweet and sexy and always there for his brother and friends, Connie too. Connie told him she didn't want a relationship if he didn't have a plan when he decided to quit college. She seems to forget that when he appears back in town. She drove me a bit nuts insisting he left when she shoved him away. Though I did like her other than that. She's funny and loyal. The secondary characters keep the story flowing and woven like a beautiful tapestry. I can't wait for Emma's book. Dying. Yeppers, dying. If you enjoy a fun, steamy romance that keeps you engaged from beginning to end I recommend reading What Happens In Summer.

Another enjoyable, easy read in this series with a second-chance at love, some great friendships, and a totally adorable pup named Dudley! I just loved Jonathan. Despite being disowned by his father, he’s managed to become very successful, taking his own path in life and doing things his own way. This path has given him a bit of reputation as a playboy and wanderer, but now he’s ready to put down some roots, and coming face to face with the girl from his past, he knows just who he wants to create a future with – if only he can get her to realize he can be a sure thing. There were a lot of things about Connie that I loved, but boy she could get me a bit irritated. She’s struggled with relationships since her father abandoned her and her mother when she was young, and she’s determined to never put herself in the same position her mother found herself in, having to give up her dreams because of a man. I get that she was cautious but I really wanted her to just ask Jonathan what his plans were instead of assuming he wouldn’t want to commit…and don’t get me started on her dumping him when they had their first fling in college! What I did really like about her was watching her fight for her career, standing up for herself, and then being able to realize that reaching her dream didn’t necessarily mean giving anything up, it just meant having to adjust the path she was on to get to her destination. One of things I am really enjoying about this series is the relationships between the characters. There is family drama with some pretty big secrets, there is love and loss, and there are some awesome friendships that set the backdrop for this series. The friendship between Jon and his brother is so solid, and Connie has her group of friends that are so supportive but also keep things real for each other. This book happens during some of the same timeline as the first book in the series, One Summer Night, so although some of the storyline at parts is similar, it was fun to find out what was going on behind the scenes for Jon and Connie while Owen and Maggie were finding their own happy ever after. The author’s writing style and voice made this easy to read. The pacing was good – it did slow down a bit for me when they slowed the relationship down, I thought the “we need to make this relationship be more than about the great sex” got a bit overdone - but the few twists kept the pages turning and there was a sweetness to the romance that had me all-in when it came to Connie and Jon. Definitely worth grabbing and would make a great beach read!

I received an Advanced Reader Copy. I am voluntarily leaving a review. This is the second book of the At the Shore series. I doubly love the book because I am from the Jersey Shore and while the name of the town is fictional. many the places are based on real locations here. This story is about Connie and Jonathan, who had a summer fling while they were in college. Even though they were madly in love, their own baggage comes between them. Connie is friends with Maggie, who has a house at the and Jonathan and Owen, his brother have the summer house next door. This book happens in the same timeframe as book 1 so there are some spoilers. This is a beautiful second chance story.

So, there's that saying "opposites attract" that is demonstrated in real life and in fiction. Rich/poor. Fire/ice. Popular/nerdy. Free spirit/disciplined. Whatever pairing I have come across, whether in real life or in fiction, I have found that those differences are what makes for strong couples. It's not power play. It's not submission. It's balance. Yin and yang. A complemented pairing that works. Connie and Jonathan have been different since before now. She refused to be like her mother so she's overly cautious, suspicious even. It makes for a great lawyer mindset but not so for a relationship one. He refused to live by his dad's rules so he rebelled and made his own mark on the world. His young man rebellion brought him acclaim unimaginable but it's also keeping him from the one woman he wants. She's still the woman he longs for, but she doesn't see a man worth giving a second chance to because he walked away all those years ago. Time and experience have a way of changing people, and it was very obvious that Jonathan was not the same person now as he was then. It was just hard and slightly frustrating to watch Connie see it and doubt it. There were way too many moments when I was torn between wanting to throw something at her because she was that frustrating, and wanting to give her a hug because I wanted her to see the amazing man standing in front of her. Settling the past and making peace with it were essential for them to have a fighting chance for forever. When they did, it was definitely time for their future to begin. Ms. Pineiro did a lovely job wrapping up the loose ends so they could move forward. For Connie and Jonathan, it was a long time coming and their second chance was worth waiting for.

Connie Reyes and Jonathan Pierce meet and fall in love while on Summer break from college. They both want to continue their relationship past the summer, but when Jonathan let’s Connie know that he is quitting college to figure out what he wants to do with his life, she dumps him. Fast forward eight years and they are the maid of honor and best man in her best friend and his brothers wedding. Jonathan is a successful businessman (think Elon Musk) and Connie is working in a Manhattan law firm trying to make partner. Both still have feelings for each other, but need to work through their parental abandonment issues to work their way to their happily ever after. This is a nice second chance romance. I was given an ARC of this book for my honest review of this book.

This is a good classic love story. Jonathan nd Connie shared a summer together years ago. Connie has goals set as far as college, career and such. Jon is a dreamer a wanderer someone who just wanted to have life experiences. They fell in love on the Jersey Shore but she needed more commitment for their future so their love story ended..... or did it? I enjoyed this book. It was a typical love story. I enjoyed the complexity of the characters and the back story. I normally like a bit more bedroom scenes. I truly liked the characters and would like to read more about the Jersey Shore. Great Job Caridad! ** I received an ARC copy of this book for my honest review.

Many years ago Jonathan Pierce and Connie Reyes had a little teenage fling, they were madly in love one minute, and then they were not the next, and shortly after things fizzled out between them they went their separate ways and they haven't spoken since. But now they find themselves attending the same wedding, and Jonathon would love nothing more than to use the opportunity to show Connie he is a better man, one that will treat her the way he should have treated her back then... but Connie has her reservations about him. He broke her heart once, and she isn't so willing to put it back in his hands again... What Happens in Summer is a sweet, heartfelt, second chance romance that is sure to have romance readers swooning throughout! With it's drama filled story line, and shore side locale, it makes the perfect summer read! I am a sucker for second chance romances and I have to say this one definitely hit the mark, it was engaging, heartwarming, and left me smiling! Highly recommend!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
