Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

Anna is dreading another tourist-filled summer on Dune Island that follows the same routine: beach, ice cream, friends, repeat. That is, until she locks eyes with Will, the gorgeous and sweet guy visiting from New York. Soon, her summer is filled with flirtatious fun as Anna falls head over heels in love.
But with every perfect afternoon, sweet kiss, and walk on the beach, Anna can’t ignore that the days are quickly growing shorter, and Will has to leave at the end of August. Anna’s never felt anything like this before, but when forever isn't even a possibility, one summer doesn’t feel worth the promise of her heart breaking….

This was a really sweet book. It took me only 2 days to read and I have to say I really enjoyed it.  The characters were likeable, the setting was perfect and it was just a perfect summer read. A little predictable at times but I like that from a romance.

Anna and Will's meeting has got to be one of my favourites ever. It was this instant attraction but it was so awkward. It felt so real and was really amusing to watch. Their romance, as it grew, was just as entertaining and I just wanted them to be happy.

Anna is a sweet girl that I really connected with. She was kind and nice and just sweet. That being said, she had flaws, like all good characters do. Will was a great love interest and they worked well together in a relationship.

Now, the ending. I rather liked it. To be honest I don't remember too much about the details but I remember being content with it. I felt it was fitting for the book and had been planned out by the author.

The book isn't amazing by any means. There is nothing hugely unique but that seems so irrelevant. It was a light, quick beach read and I got everything I wanted from it!


  1. Sounds like the perfect book to sit by the water with! Nice review :)

  2. I just got through 2 pretty heavy books and this seems like a light-hearted, sweet and funny novel I can chill out with!
