Summer Is For Lovers
By: Jennifer McQuiston
Avon Romance
Releasing September 24th, 2013

Blurb
David Cameron has been tricked. After bringing his supposedly ailing mother to Brighton to take the waters, he’s found himself bombarded with young ladies of marriageable age, while his mother has made a marked improvement. Seeking respite from the hordes, he retreats to a beach he hasn’t seen in years--and finds a woman he’s never quite been able to forget.

Caroline Tolbertson just wants to be left alone. But her mother is determined to see her married off, no matter Caroline’s protests--or her embarassing lack of suitors. Seeing David Cameron, her childhood crush, again sets her heart racing, but she’s older and wiser now. And no, that wasn’t her heart sinking when David suggested a faux courtship instead of the real thing.

But Caroline has never been very good at following the rules, and the fake attraction soon grows into the real thing. Now Caroline has more scandalous pursuits in mind and David is finding it very hard to say no to his gorgeous friend. Will giving in to temptation send them both down a path they each claim to abhor--straight to the altar?

My Review
David has had a bad experience with women in the past. His mother gets him to take her to Brighton were the waters are supposed to be good for healing her. What he doesn't know is his mother wants him to find a wife. Years ago as a child Caroline saved a man's life and has never forgot him. Now all grown up she along with her sister are not seen as marriage material. She knows she has to find a husband to help her sister and mother. What she doesn't expect is to meet the man from her past who was her childhood love. Now she wants him to be hers for all time but he doesn't want anything but friends. As they both teach other new skills considered scandalous they both have to see if they can move past friends or will Caroline have to marry a man she doesn't love.

Caroline doesn't fit in. She swims which woman shouldn't do and she has the wrong body type that is not the fashion. She is a very curious woman and feels a responsibility to take care of her family. David wants Caroline but will not allow his memories of the past go. He isn't a conventional man and believes Caroline can do anything. He tries his best to ignore his jealousy.

This is a great story as you get to see both main characters personalities and what makes them the way they are. They both want each other and David more so than Caroline fights it all the way. They belong together and while Caroline knows it David doesn't. It has several steamy scenes however you get a great story as well. The book has a nice plot and great characters that you want to see more of. I would love go see Pen get her own story as she is just as fascinating as Caroline. If you love romance books pick this one up. It is really great.
