Also by this author: Summer's Temptation

If there are only three truths in life, they are these. Women will always try to change a man. Men will always say anything to get a girl in bed. Tyler Mason will always have a long line of girls trying to domesticate him, and none will succeed. If one of these ceases to be true, the world will cease to exist.

These are the rules as college student Cassie Faye knows them, so when she gives up on dating in favor of a man who can satisfy her without tempting her heart, her next-door neighbor Tyler tops the list. Tyler isn’t the type of boy Cassie would fall for, but he’s the perfect guy to teach her how to claim her sexual independence without losing her heart in the process. Too late, Cassie finds out that under his womanizing exterior is an attentive, considerate lover who brings out passions in her that she'd barely glimpsed before.

What if she’s wrong about the third truth? What if the world as she knows it is about to cease to exist?

3.5 Stars

Happy now, Stephanie? I read and I loved it. Though it may not be that original, I enjoyed this book quite a bit. But it’s not perfect and I did have a few issues with it.

Normally I give a short summary, but I don’t feel like doing that because it’s practically the same as any other NA book. And that’s also the first thing that is starting to bother me. And that’s not just this book, it’s every NA book these days. After a while I grow tired of this formula. Hot girl, who doesn’t know how hot she is supposedly, doesn’t want to fall in love but does with a very hot guy who’s also sweet and caring and bla bla bla. Come on people, if I looked like the girls in these books, I wouldn’t have so many problems with self-esteem. Seriously. From now on, every book that does this, loses a half star.

The other thing I didn’t like was that the story of Tyler and Cassie didn’t end. It goes on in the next book while it could have easily ended in this book. Just a few more chapters would’ve been enough and the book wouldn’t have been too long. Because while my ebook version is 298 pages, the last thirty or so were a preview for the next book. The author could’ve just closed their storyline and started a new one in the next book. Because I’m afraid another book about the two of them will lead to some very unnecessary conflict. And I don’t like that.

Don’t get me wrong, this is still a good book. And I’m eternally grateful it converted my best friend to contemporary books. I did like the chemistry between Tyler and Cassie and I liked all the other characters. I would’ve loved to see more Freddy! (See, if you’d finished T&C story in this book, the next could’ve been about Freddy!) And the erotic scenes were very good, so I have nothing to complain about on that account.

Summer’s Temptation is a good, enjoyable New Adult book. It’s a great summer read and I recommend it to mainly newbies in the New Adult genre. Even if you’re not a contemporary fan, you should read it. I already know one person who was converted with this book, maybe you will be too.
