Loving Summer by Kailin Gow Review Tour Stop

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

I am not sure what to say about this book. It was not a book I intend to re-read, nor is it a book I absolutely hated. It is just a book that was a simple easy read for me.

One thing I liked about the book was that it was a quick read, I am a sucker for romance and though some of the scenarios were dramatic and cheesy, I still thought they were cute if unrealistic.

I didn't like that it was three "gorgeous" guys after one girl. And it seemed like their declarations of love came out of nowhere, as if they just suddenly found out what they liked. They couldn't even seem to lay it down straight what they liked about the girl.

I did like Rachel and although termed a 'Goth' a stereotype  I absolutely abhor when reading, she was still a sweet girl and my favorite of the quad

I didn't like Summer at all, she was actually that girl that I could see myself getting annoyed with really quickly. If she had been a real person she wouldn't be the type of person I hung out with or even associated with.

The ending also just happened, and while I enjoy a good cliff hanger because it pushes me to complete a series, I hated how this one just stopped as if pages had been ripped from the book. Nothing was resolved and nothing left me wanting more.

This would be the perfect summer read when just lazing about for the day and wanting something quick to take your mind off of things, the story was very sweet just not executed to my expectations.

3 Out of 5 Rating's.
