Goodreads: Anna is dreading another tourist-filled summer on Dune Island that follows the same routine: beach, ice cream, friends, repeat. That is, until she locks eyes with Will, the gorgeous and sweet guy visiting from New York. Soon, her summer is filled with flirtatious fun as Anna falls head over heels in love.
But with every perfect afternoon, sweet kiss, and walk on the beach, Anna can’t ignore that the days are quickly growing shorter, and Will has to leave at the end of August. Anna’s never felt anything like this before, but when forever isn’t even a possibility, one summer doesn’t feel worth the promise of her heart breaking…
Ope’s Opinion: I decided to go on my Goodreads and read the first book I added to my TBR list. This cute young adult book popped up. It was the perfect read for me. I needed something light, easy and quick to read.
I really liked: Anna ( the main character ) and Will ( her love interest ) had their families involved in the story, Anna had a job – for her parents shop, but she did work, Will and Anna actually wanted to get to know each other – they were attracted to each other, but it wasn’t all just physical.
This isn’t a book that will change your life, but it sure added a smile to my face. It is one I would give to a young girl, for a summer read, to pass the time. There isn’t a lot of drama, just summer fun.
