ABOUT THE SUMMER DEAL (a standalone Wildstone novel)

Brynn Turner desperately wishes she had it together, but her personal life is like a ping-pong match that’s left her scared and hurt after so many attempts to get it right. In search of a place to lick her wounds and get a fresh start, she heads back home to Wildstone.

And then there’s Kinsey Davis, who after battling serious health issues her entire twenty-nine years of life, is tired of hoping for . . . well, anything. She’s fierce, tough, and she’s keeping more than one bombshell of a secret from Brynn — her long-time frenemy.

But then Brynn runs into Kinsey’s best friend, Eli, renewing her childhood crush. The good news: he’s still easy-going and funny and sexy as hell.

The bad news: when he gets her to agree to a summer-time deal to trust him to do right by her, no matter what, she never dreams it’ll result in finding a piece of herself she didn’t even know was missing. She could have real connections, possibly love, and a future—if she can only learn to let go of the past.

As the long days of summer wind down, the three of them must discover if forgiveness is enough to grasp the unconditional love that’s right in front of them.

The Summer Deal (Wildstone, #5)

The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I am a Jill Shalvis fan, so when I was given the opportunity to be a part of the blog tour for THE SUMMER DEAL, I jumped on the chance. This is the fifth novel in the Wildstone series, and like all the rest, I was sucked into the story and swept away to the California coast.
What I loved:
Brynn, the MC, has two moms. Delving into the family dynamics and the tight bond and protectiveness that they have for each other was heartwarming.
Brynn and Kinsey’s frenemies relationship. There’s a lot of history between them. Their unique relationship is not like any I’ve ever read in a novel.
Brynn and Eli = SWOON! Love them together.
Kinsey and Deck = Major Swoon!!!

What makes this book fascinating to read are all the interconnected relationships. The theme of family is also an important part, and we all know how messed up families can be.

In these difficult times, taking a break and getting lost in a wonderful summer romance is the perfect temporary escape. I highly recommend THE SUMMER DEAL for that along with any of Jill Shalvis’s other books!

Book Summary:

For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It’s the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she’s rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she’s ever laid hands on.

Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to “save” him. In fact, he’d like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He’s just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole’s heart, or will it be the end of Olivia’s days in little Lucky Harbor?

He's So Fine (Lucky Harbor, #11)My Review by Jill Shalvis

5 of 5 stars

Seriously, Jill Shalvis only gets better and better and better. I am completely addicted to this Lucky Harbor series. Every couple is so different. They have their own issues and challenges to overcome, but within their imperfections, they’re perfect for each other.

That’s exactly how how I felt about Olivia and Cole in HE’S SO FINE. When it comes to their pasts, Cole is an open book and Olivia is as closed as can be. But as they learn to trust and respect each other, they find new ways to be open and honest and to forgive.

Here’s some of the things I loved:

1. The differences between Olivia’s family and Cole’s family. Cole’s is an invasion and loving. Olivia’s is greedy and unloving. The contrast is striking and relatable.
2. Despite being afraid to open herself up to Cole, Olivia does so, and it changes her.
3. Cole embraces a new relationship, despite his fear of getting burned.
4. Cole is loyal and devoted to his family, even though they can be incredibly annoying.
5. Best friends – Cole has Tanner and Sam, who are loyal even when Cole pushes them away. Olivia has Becca, who doesn’t judge and has her back.
6. Challenges – Cole has to face past relationships and deal with the loss of his friend Gil. Plus he jumps at the flick of a lighter or a spark. Olivia hides her past, changed her identity and has to face it.
7. I love what Cole has in all his pockets! Handyman extraordinaire!
8. A swoon-worthy ending!

The entire Lucky Harbor series is a must read for anyone who loves romance novels! Don’t miss any of them!
