After her car accident, Monica believes her dance career is over, despite the positive outlook everyone else has. Instead of trying to get back on her feet, she works on perfecting the art of couch surfing.
Famous author, Gabe Mitchell, doesn’t fare much better. On top of watching his roommate letting her life pass by, he also suffers from a major bout of writer’s block.
Hoping a change of scenery will get them both out of their rut, Gabe takes matters into his own hands and whisks Monica away to his own personal haven.
What neither one of them expects is the attraction to each other to bloom even though Monica will leave Brooksville in a matter of weeks.
Their time together is filled with skimpy bathing suits, sexy fantasy book inspirations, hot tub make-out sessions, and new job prospects.
It’s plenty to reignite their creative flames, but will it be enough to turn their one short summer into something more?
This is the second book in the Brooksville series, following the first book, Baking with the Rockstar. And while it contains spoilers for the first book, One Short Summer can be read as a standalone.
I really loved Gabe and the easy relationship he’s fallen into with Monica — the short-term house guest who turned into a roommate. Though sparks flew between them from their very first meeting (back in Baking with the Rockstar), life has thrown Monica enough curve balls to keep her playing things close to the vest. For the same reasons, Gabe keeps his distance and tries to squash his growing attraction.
But of course, as any reader of romance will tell you — that only works for so long. When Gabe and Monica finally give in to their attraction, both of them keep lying to themselves. This will only be temporary … oh sure, sure.
The romance between these two is super sweet, and if you don’t swoon for Gabe, something is seriously wrong with you. (A hot, nerdy fantasy author? Yup.) I wish the story itself had held a little more tension to get me more invested, but if you’re after something sweet and easy to read, this will certainly do the trick.
One Short Summer is available NOW!
