May contain spoilers.

If you are reading this book or even thinking about reading this book then you have probably read the other books in this series. I’m not going to lie, I was ecstatic to get a chance to read this book. Why you ask? Nat. Nat Donovan. I was promised that there would be more Nat and let me tell you…Yes there was. In my head I was hearing Justin Timberlake’s song “bringing sexy back”. Nat brought the sexy. Now this doesn't mean that Drew is out of the game. Oh no, he’s still in

I have loved this series by Kailin Gow from the very beginning!! And it just keeps getting better!!

Perfect Summer definitely had some surprises in store for me. There was a lot more mature scenes in this and I loved that. The characters are growing up and so is the series! Nat, Drew, and Astor are all still vying for Summer's attention as more than just friends. And Summer is moving towards one of them but still has deep rooted feelings for another one. But Summer has to deal with taking over th

This book starts off where the last book ends, with Drew finding Summer and Nat in bed together. From there it goes into the love triangle where summer is trying very hard to figure out her confusing feelings for the two and Drew is trying unsuccessfully to stand back and let her be with Nat. Not only that but she has feelings for Aster as well which are more a friendship than romantic love but Aster wants more. Not only is there a love triangle of sorts but there's also a lot more mystery invol ...more

I'm very disappointed in this book. First off, I waited for this book to be release and dealt with 5 different release dates. Secondly, it felt like the book was rushed and not edited.

Ok now to the story; Summer grew up with the Donovan's family. Nat the older brother and the twins Drew and Rachel. Summer has had a crush on Nat most of her life. One summer Drew showed his true feelings for Summer and she ended up having feelings for him. In this story it seems to me she is very confused about h

Nat and Summer are trying at the relationship and Drew is trying to be there as a friend (even though he loves her). Astor is still Summer's friend and hopes that there will be a future for them one day. I think Summer wants them all a little and can't decide on which one. Each time she is alone with one - she forgets about the other. Love - I don't think so - maybe LUST!!! Can't blame her though - from the description, I would be lusting after them too. It is not far to them though - like her s ...more

So I enjoyed the book. Was it one if my favorites? No, but having invested time in the series I will continue to read them. I just wish Summer would choose already, as she is still continuing to lead Nat, Drew, and Astor on and is playing games with each of their hearts! However, I do have a soft spot for Drew and have from the beginning.
Not sure if others have noticed, or if it is the teacher in me, but the grammar and editing throughout not just this book, but the entire series is atrocious
May 05, 2013 Dalene rated it it was amazing
One word: Pick already! Yes I will continue this series until the end. Yes I love this series more than words can express. Summer? Pick a guy though. I love Nat and Drew both so much, but I would personally go with Drew. Why? Because he has loved you from the beginning and didn't play with your heart like Nat. Movie star boy? Gone!!! I love him, but you already have enough trouble with two guys, why bring in a third? Katilin Gow has been able to write another amazingly addicting read to her Lovi ...more
May 05, 2014 Tammy rated it it was amazing
After such a huge loss Summer feels kind of lost into herself. The love triangle continues between herself, Nat and Drew. Summer seems wishy washy between the two brothers- Nat she has loved all her life and Drew suddenly is so appealing to her and both in love with her.
Interesting where the writer takes us on this journey leading us right into the next book.
Secretly Adorkable Readers
I just love these series & can't get enough of the Donovan brothers, Astor and Summer!! Another cliffhanger and looks like 2 more books to go. Will have to read them all at once by the last one that comes around.
Actual rating: 3.5 - 3.75

Can't help but fall in love with the ever responsible and considerate Nat but then again Drew is reliable and oh so hot too... I can totally understand Summer...its really hard to choose

I finished it. I think Summer is a tramp. You don't come b/w two brothers. WTH? Will I read the next one, I really don't know.

Hate the main character. What she is doing to these 2 bothers just turned me right off. She doesn't deserve either of them. Officially stopped reading series.

Book 2 was all over the place and just as bad as Book 1... Too many different plots going on and the story was jumping all over the place. Very disappointed......again!!!

Can't believe one girl can play with the lives and emotions of three guys, especially as two are brothers. Is this how the girls of today behave?

“It’s one way or another, Summer. For me, it’s black and white. You’re either in the friend zone or the lover zone. And with you…Gosh, Summer, you’re in my danger zone. My rip-my-heart-out and change-me-forever zone. I have to tread lightly with you. Because if I don’t, I may never be able to find my way back.” 8 likes
“But why do you have to keep your distance from me, why can’t you see me, talk to me like a real person…like Drew, not some kind of distant non-friend.”
“Non-friend?” Drew smiled drily at my choice of words. “I like the sound of that better than ‘friends’, Summer. It probably describes us best.” - Perfect Summer”
