Release Date: February 7, 2017
Everyone’s had a summer crush. One that’s etched into your memories so hard that it leaves an indelible mark, like a scar on your heart. For me, that crush is my first love, Carver Edwards. I met him at fifteen at summer camp, and for three perfect summers, he was mine. Until the blazing heat of the summer sun faded and reality crashed in. Carver went off to college, leaving me trapped in my small farming town, with no way of reaching him and a problem I needed solving.
As the senior captain of my college basketball team, all I’ve been focused on the past four years has been playing, school, getting drafted in the NBA, and steering clear of relationships. I didn’t want them. I had nothing to give another girl. I’d given it already. So, I built my rep as a player, and honed my natural ability to charm the pants off girls. It’s what I did. Who I was. Who I am.
Until March, when a lay-up during a tournament landed me in an emergency room, under the care of Logan Shaw – my first love. Of all the people I could run into, why did it have to be her? Not only did my face get split wide open, but so did the locks that held the pain I’d attempted to bury for so many years.
Now that she’s back in my life, we must face the truth and the consequences of our actions – even if it could destroy us. We must uncover the truths that have kept us shackled from moving forward. That could possibly set us free.
I loved this second chance romance story and found that this was different then I thought it would be. I was expecting a sweet romance story but was surprised with the many emotions that was written into this story making it such a great read. Sweet Summer Love had everything in that makes this an amazing romance read; there were laughs, angst, romance, heartache, hot moments and drama.
Logan was a fiercely independent woman that didn’t need a man to help her with anything after growing up with three older brothers and a father that didn’t show her any love. I loved her straight away in the story and enjoyed even more throughout the story. I felt my self-tearing up with the pain and devastation that she experienced.
Carver was the captain of his collage basketball team and was soon entering the NBA draft. He had a massive ego and new that he was very attractive to other females. However, the way that he treated was completely different then the rest of the girls. It was obvious that she treated to him differently to other people and this caused him to look at things in a different light. He was a fun character that at first I thought was just another cocky jock but found he was much more then that. He had his heart broken years ago by Logan in a misunderstanding and carried that around with him every day. I loved Craver so much throughout Sweet Summer Love.
From the age of fifteen Carver and Logan would spend the summer together at an elite camp together. Years later after something that tore them both apart they are reunited with each other.
This story captivated me from the start and was written very well by Sierra Hill. I’m a big fan of second chance romances and this would have to be in one of my top five reads. There was so many feels packed into this story that made me love so much. I recommend that everyone one clicks this story straight away or even one click the whole series and be introduce to the whole sweet series characters.
