Audio: What happens in Summer - Caridad Pineiro

She knows the kind of man he is;
The kind who breaks hearts.
But a hot summer at the Jersey Shore
Might be just what they need to light up their lives . . .

As the only daughter of a single mom, Connie Reyes swore she would never put herself or her child in a similar position. But when she runs into oh so tempting Jonathan Pierce at a wedding, she knows she must stay away. She'll fall for him—hard. And he's not the type to stick around.

Ever since he left town after their teenage fling, Jonathan hasn't been able to forget about Connie. He can't wait for the wedding—to show her the man he's become. And when the night finally comes, their mutual desire will lead to unexpected consequences neither of them were prepared for . . .

For review

MY thoughts:
Oh Connie! I get that your dad left, but that does not mean that Jonathan is just like him. Walking out on your family is not the same as travelling the world and finding your passion. But hey a book needs drama so let us begin.

Connie and Jonathan shared a summer long ago. But he dropped out of College and she went on to become a lawyer cos she wanted stability.

But they always meet again since her BFF is neighbor to his family, and cos her BFF Maggie and Owen, J's brother hooked up in book 1. 

They banter, they want each other. I want her to let loose and forget about her big plan. I like how he does not give up because he know they are meant to be. I do like a man who gives chase and is not the one running away.

The book actually takes place at the same time as book 1 did. So the big thing I already guessed there. It makes me wonder if book 3 takes place at the same time too since they seem to be doing a dance around too.

But cute and nice

Narrator Veronica Worthington
I was not totally on board with book 1, I felt like her voices blended together and everyone sounded the same. But here they do not. Maybe she got better. Cos here everything fits and i like her narration and voices

  5. Good to see a narrator develop and make the experience better. Sounds like a nice romance although not sure if I like matching timelines for a series.

    1. It is so weird cos I was not sure I wanted to get this one cos of the narrator but I thought they had changed narrator so I did anyway

  11. Yes, need the drama, I guess. I read book one and I do remember a couple moments when I thought something was going on between side characters. This explains it with them all happening at the same time. :)

    Good that the narrator worked out.

    1. Which made me wondering, is the 3rd story taking place now too, cos in this one you get to see that Emma and her man seems to be doing their dance too

  12. The summary kind of makes me think both characters need a quick smack on the head to wake them up, but oh well. This does look like the perfect beach book :P

  13. Sounds cute. I notice that usually I rate a narrator higher each book in a series. I think it's because they settle into a good pattern and I grow used to them.

  14. Jen: She truly improved, by so much

  15. Narration can make or break a story.
