College student Cassie is spending the summer in the quaint beach town of Avalon Bay, SC, helping her grandmother pack up and sell the historic family home and business, the Beacon Hotel. Pulled between her narcissistic mother and her father’s new family, Cassie decides her best escape would be in the arms of a summer fling—something both fun and temporary. And who does Cassie spy right outside her bedroom window? The hot and naked Tate Bartlett, house-sitting next door for the summer. Close proximity leads to intimate encounters as Tate discovers he is stunned by Cassie, finding more than just a killer body and a pretty face. As the summer comes to an end, Cassie and Tate start to wonder if a summer fling could ever become forever after. Fans of the “Avalon Bay” series will enjoy familiar faces and places in this third installment after Bad Girl Reputation.
VERDICT Young love, sizzling nights, and the welcoming characters of Avalon Bay make this a perfect beach read for anyone needing a sexy summer escape.
