Kailin Gow – Perfect Summer Reads
“There are so many things that I love about this novel. The first novel of the series is just amazing. I honestly don’t know how Kailin Gow can make it anymore amazing, but I bet she can. When reading the description my first thought was “oh another romance story”. Man I was wrong! I do love my romance stories, but sometimes they can be repetitive. “Loving Summer” was anything but!” – DKolb

PRAISE for LOVING SUMMER
“The perfect summer read” – Michelle, Book Briefs Reviews
“Not only did it keep me in suspense of what was happening, but the character’s responses were believable. Gow really impressed me with this book and I am looking forward to reading her other books.” – YA Fiction Book Reviews
“I love the romance, but there are bigger issues the author tackles in this book that is appropriate for older teens and young adults and felt realistic.” – Constance
“When I think of my summers spent at Aunt Sookie’s Malibu “pad” as she called it, I think about first kisses, first love, and first heartbreak. I think about my friendship with Rachel Donovan and her brothers Nathaniel (Nat) and Drew. I think of all the sunsets, dawns, and first attempts. And then there was this summer, the summer I grew up, in more ways than one, and everyone noticed, especially the boys, especially Nat.” – Summer Jones
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.
A new adult contemporary romance with an edge.

There isn’t anything cookie-cutter or simple about Loving Summer. – Lovey Dovey Books

Love hits you when you least expect it, grabs you, sucks you in whole, and twists you around until you could hardly breathe. Love hurts like a sucker punch, that’s both glorious and beautiful. Falling for Summer was like that for me, every time. – Nat Donovan

Now Summer is all grown up, gorgeous, and scorchingly sexy without even knowing it. Responsible older brother Nat, who had always tried to keep their friendship platonic, now can’t stop thinking of her and wanting more. Carefree Drew, who had always had a crush on Summer, but knew Summer’s heart was already taken, can only fall further for her.
