The Summer Remains by Seth King

Twenty-four-year-old Summer Johnson knows two things. The first is that due to a quickly worsening medical condition, she faces a risky surgery in three months’ time that may very well end in her death. The second is that she would like to fall in love before then.
As spring sinks into her namesake season on the Florida coastline, Summer plays the odds and downloads a new dating app – and after one intriguing message from a beautiful surfer named Cooper Nichols, it becomes clear that the story of what may be her last few months under the sun is about to be completely revised. All she has to do now is write something worth reading.

Tender, honest, devastating and triumphant, The Summer Remains explores a very human battle being waged in a very digital age: the search for a love that will outlast this temporary borrowing of bones. In an era when many feel compelled to share and re-share anything about everything, prepare to feel a love so special, you will want to hug it close and make it yours forever.

thesummerremains1AbbieD’s review:
This is not the story of boy meets girl, they fall in love, then live happily ever after. This is not the fairy tale of Snow White, where just one kiss from her prince will bring her back…

A love story set in this new age, where cell phones are always in one hand, and constantly checking Facebook is the new normalcy for this Millennial Generation we exist in, Seth King captures all of these elements and molds them into a story so unique, that I’m having a hard time even thinking about moving onto another book.

Reading Summer and Cooper’s story was not just a breath of fresh air, it was like breathing in a different kind of oxygen. I really felt their special moments together, their pain, their love. I can’t just summarize this book in one sentence, and it’s definitely not a story you’ve ever read before. First of all, the writing is unlike anything I’ve ever laid eyes upon; it’s captivating. From the very first line, this book had my full attention. I was completely invested and as I continued through the story, I experienced a unique combination of emotions.

Can I pick a favorite part of this book? Absolutely not. There are SO many moments that melted me and made me feel like I was truly one with story. Do you know those books where you want to just highlight a sentence on every other page? Well, try EVERY page with this book.

The Summer Remains will make you laugh, it will be make you cry and it will stay with you forever…. not just until summer. Seth’s writing is beyond superb. He has written a masterpiece. Keep your eyes peeled for more amazing things from Seth!

About Jennifer Ryan:
Jennifer Ryan, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Hunted and McBrides Series, writes romantic suspense and contemporary small-town romances.

Jennifer lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and three children. When she isn’t writing a book, she’s reading one. Her obsession with both is often revealed in the state of her home, and how late dinner is to the table. When she finally leaves those fictional worlds, you’ll find her in the garden, playing in the dirt and daydreaming about people who live only in her head, until she puts them on paper. 

“Tell me to go and leave you alone.”

“I don’t want to be alone. I want to be with you.” He wanted to ask her for how long, but stopped himself, because soon she’d leave and go back to that life she thought she’d outgrown, but would want back because it was familiar. She’d need it back to regain some of the normal from her past in her new life without her sister.

He let loose the reins on his need and pulled her close. He dipped his head, his gaze on her rosy lips. He pressed his mouth to hers for a deep kiss and held nothing back this time. He swept his tongue along hers, melding his mouth to hers. His fingers gripped her hips, let loose, and swept up inside her sweater and up her smooth spine. When his fingertips touched her skin, she sighed and pressed closer.

She rocked her hips against him and he groaned, breaking the kiss to move down her neck and kiss that sweet spot between her neck and shoulder. “God, you always smell so good.”

Her head fell back, and he kissed his way back up her throat to her lips again for another searing kiss.

“Don’t stop,” she said against his mouth. “Don’t ever stop.”

“I’m just getting started.”

Hooking up is only the beginning of the fun in this sexy and irresistible second installment of the thrilling New Adult series, Boomerang.

At Boomerang, one night can change everything…

Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-two, he’s fabulously wealthy, Ryan Gosling-hot and at the top of his game in the business world. His life is perfect, until a scandal from his past resurfaces and threatens to knock the tech wunderkind down and throw his company, Boomerang, a hook-up site for millennials, into chaos.

Alison Quick, the twenty-one-year-old daughter of a business tycoon—and the very ex-girlfriend of Boomerang’s former intern, Ethan—has a problem of her own. After nearly flunking out in her senior year of college, she has one chance to redeem herself to her father by proving that she deserves a place in his corporate empire. That means spearheading her father’s plan to sink big money into Adam’s company and launch it into the stratosphere—provided Adam has no skeletons in his closet.

When the two meet, their sizzling chemistry makes it tough to keep things strictly professional. But when Alison discovers Adam’s secret, she knows she should bring it right to her father, who’ll leverage it for his own gain and use it to ruin Adam. The only problem: she’s falling for Adam—hard.

Will earning her father’s approval come at the price of losing her first real love? Or can Adam and Alison leave behind past mistakes and conquer the world—together?
