Sunny Shelly’s Review: Six Summers to Fall by C.W. Farnsworth

đź’– NEW RELEASE đź’–

SIX SUMMERS TO FALL  by C.W. Farnsworth is LIVE!!! Don’t miss this emotional reverse grumpy/sunshine, fake dating romance!!! 



Six summers. Six chances. One week spent pretending.

Ever since her younger sister’s engagement was announced, Harper Williams has been dreading the wedding. What should be a joyous, sun-drenched affair is sure to be filled with plenty of awkward moments, thanks to Harper’s strained relationship with her only sibling. Awkwardness enhanced by the wedding’s location—a lake in Maine swimming with painful memories of their late father.

Running into Drew Halifax—her childhood crush who grew up to be the golden boy of hockey—is a surprise. Not nearly as shocking as his offer to be her plus-one is, though.

She expects him to back out. He shows up. She’s looking for a distraction from the past. He’s killing time until his season starts and he can chase the championship. She’s guarded yet outgoing. He’s easygoing yet focused.

They hardly know each other. Until one week of sharing secrets, pretending to be in love, and sleeping in the same bed changes everything. Feelings that were supposed to be fake start to feel very real.

Problem is, neither of them are looking for a relationship. At most, they’re meant to be a summer fling. Definitely not a happy ever after.

But when it comes to falling? You have no control. Once you start, it’s impossible to stop. And sometimes…it takes six summers.



Drew and Harper knew each other growing up, and unbeknownst to each other, were crushing on one another hard back. The summer of her sister’s wedding, they embark on a no-strings fake relationship… but of course, feelings get involved and two people who didn’t want a commitment find themselves in a very real relationship and they aren’t sure what to do about it.

This book was cute, and a quick read. But I wish there was more backstory, especially considering the title. It took six summers for Drew and Harper to fall in love, but we barely got to see their relationship evolve over those years. I felt a bit let down by that because I thought the concept was great when I first read the title. I think I would have been shipping Harper and Drew more had I seen that progress of their relationship rather than the rush of that last summer.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
