She was the light in my dark life. The sunshine that warmed me and made me smile.
We had one summer. One perfect summer, until the day it ended.
Years later, she walked back into my life. Older. Sadder. More beautiful than ever. 

How can I prove to her that summer was real?

How do I make her see that boy that loved her then, still loves her now?
How do we get back to the summer when we were us?


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
The Summer Of Us takes a misunderstood rich boy and the girl from the wrong side of the track, splits them up and then brings them back together ten years later, complete with a hint of revenge and a dash of true-love-never-dies. Linc and Sunny have been best friends from the time they shard a box of crayons as kindergarteners, and fell in love as teenagers. They hid their romance because Linc’s dad was an abusive, egotistical bastard, but even though dear old dad ripped Linc and Sunny apart that one summer when they were teenagers, true love prevails in this heartwarming romance.

The years they spent apart shaped Linc and Sunny into very different people than who they were as teenagers. She’s suffered so much loss, and his lonely life got even lonlier when he was sent away. Now Linc is stronger and richer than even his dad, and he’s set out to undo all the damage his father did in town. A chance meeting back in their hometown leads Linc and Sunny to explore another “summer of us” — but will his laser-focus on tearing down all that his dad was responsible for be the very thing that rips them apart?

From start to finish, The Summer Of Us is a brilliant story of love, loss, pain, betrayal and forgiveness. It is the start to a new series, and I was absolutely hooked on this crew of characters. I can’t wait to get my hands on Matt and Abby’s book when that comes out! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
