REVIEW: Summer by Summer by Heather Birch

REVIEW: Summer by Summer by Heather Burch

{About the Book}

When Summer took a job as a nanny for a couple vacationing in Belize, she imagined it would be a fresh start before starting college in the fall. And while she adores her charge, Josh, she can’t say the same for her employers’ oldest son, Bray. He’s cocky, inconsiderate, and makes her feel she’s a chore he has to put up with. In short, he’s everything she dislikes in a guy.

Bray had a plan for the summer: party, hang out with friends, and forget all the responsibilities waiting for him back home. But every time he’s forced to be around Summer, her dour, serious mood sets him off. Not to mention she has a habit of picking up on what he already knows is wrong with him.

Then the two find themselves on a dive trip gone wrong, stranded on a remote island. As they focus on survival, their differences melt away, and they find being together may be what both needed all along.

{My Review}

Summer by Summer by Heather Burch

Blink YA

Release Date: April 7, 2015

288 pages

Rating: 5 stars.

A story set in tropical paradise with starry skies. This statement alone made me want to read this book. 18 year old Summer gets a job hoping that it will be a new beginning for her life. She's been through a lot, which has scarred her. What she didn't count on was meeting the son of her employers, Bray. She says he's everything she doesn't like, but we know it won't be that way for very long. Soon they make truce, but it will be tested when the become stranded when an adventure goes awry. They end up having to survive...together.

This was an absolutely perfect Summer read. I had not read any of Heather's previous books, so I had no idea what I was getting into, but it was fantastic. The writing was flowery and beautiful, prose lovely. The suspense and romance was heart-pounding, just what the doctor ordered. 

Highly recommended!
