This Summer by Katlyn Duncan
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance
Before college, before responsibilities, Hadley
Beauman and best friend Lily are determined to
have a summer to remember. There will be all the usual dramas - ex-boyfriends who don't seem to know what 'ex' means, pesky younger brothers with unrequited crushes, but what Hadley didn't anticipate was the out-of-the-blue return of the seriously hot boy-next-door, Will Carson. The boy who broke her heart when he skipped town two years ago.
Will may have shot up a foot and filled out (oh yes), but inside he carries the weight of guilt - for leaving, for coming back... Now he's just passing through to tie up loose ends but it's clear the old chemistry still crackles between him and Hadley. Trouble is, it's built on two years of lies...
This summer might just be the best time of their lives, but is Hadley ready for everything to change - again?
Hadley and Will's story is one that I've read a lot in other contemporaries. But that didn't take away from it being enjoyable. I was very appreciate that the author allowed us to witness the relationship bloom instead of shoving it in our faces and brewing up insta-love.
Fans of contemporary romances will adore this one. Like I said, it's the perfect summer read. Fans of sweet romances and light reads will flock to cheer on Hadley and Will's romance blossom.
