Blog Tour! A Book Review of An Endless Summer by C.J. Duggan

An Endless Summer (Summer #2) by C.J. Duggan
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: July 11, 2013
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.

“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.”
I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.”
A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?”

After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henderson – the Onslow publican’s only daughter – is sent away to suffer a fate far worse than any other punishment:

Boarding School.

Three years on, a now nineteen-year-old Amy returns to Onslow for the summer. What once was a cauldron of activity with live bands, hot meals and cold beers, the Onslow Hotel now lies dark, deserted and depressing. All fond childhood memories of loitering on the hotel stairs and eavesdropping on customers’ colourful conversations are in the distant past.

How had her dad let it come to this?

With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good.

In an endless summer, Amy soon realizes that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.

My Review:
An Endless Summer is the second book in the Summer Series by Australian author, C.J. Duggan. You don't have to read The Boys of Summer first, but I highly recommend that you do, because it gives you a better understanding of who all the characters are, plus it's just too darn good to pass up. Check out my review of Boys of Summer!

C.J. Duggan has done it again! She has once more transported me to Onslow among the Onslow Boys, and I just want to dive into this book and live there forever. In An Endless Summer we see how Amy and Sean meet when she is a young teenager, and then meet again once she is nineteen. Sean was a favorite of mine from book one, so I was so excited to finally read more about him. While reading An Endless Summer, Sean gave me more stomach flips than any fictional man has the right to. He's just that good. He's funny, he's smart, and he's intense. I loved the bantering between him and Amy. They were so cute and hilarious, even when they were mad. Everything about this book reeled me in: the writing style, the sarcasm, the setting, the characters, the subplots, the anticipation... and so much more. I was in love with this series and this author after reading the first book, and this one was even better. For me, An Endless Summer is the perfect romance. It has just enough of everything, but not too much of anything. It can't get much better than this. If you only pick up one series to read this summer, this is the one you much choose! This is definitely my favorite book of 2013!
