Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.

“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.”
I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.”
A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?”

After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henders

Sean, Sean, Sean, Sean.... I loved that guy in the first book, more than anybody else. So I am super excited about this!!!!

Amy was fifteen in the first book and now she has returned to the Onslow at nineteen for the summer. She thought she would hang out like old times but her dad left the place to someone who has let it go downhill. It has many memories so she decides to work on fixing it up with the help of the Onslow boys. It is a special place for the town so everyone attempts to bring it back to it's glory days to prevent her dad from selling it.

I loved Sean Murphy in the first book! I think everyone loves Sean
HOLY BATMAN. Do I need to review this book? Will a just franking read it suffice? Oh my beating heart be still, I think I'm in lust. And I do not mind at all.

Read this book folks. It's the bomb.

There's not a lot I can say about An Endless Summer, except for how amazing it is. In which case this review may be rather short, because there's only so many words in the thesaurus that I can use to express my uttermost love for not just this book, but CJ herself, and the whole series to come.

It's hard w
An Endless Summer was a book I was immensely looking forward to after I literally devoured Boys of Summer at the end of last year. Duggan just had that knack to capture the essence of what summers should be about; having fun, blossoming friendships, a sweet lasting romance and making it a summer you will never forget. And once again Duggan has been able to do that with An Endless Summer.

With An Endless Summer we are given the story of Sean and Amy. I adored Sean in The Boys of Summer; he had tha

Ladies, brace yourselves!
Trouble just drove back into town and at six-foot-three with rock hard abs, a tight arse and a smile more cheeky than an entire zoo full of monkeys, it's the kind of trouble you really, really want to find yourself knee-deep in!
When I learned An Endless Summer was going to be Sean Murphy's novel I about jumped out of my skin with excitement. Toby Morrison was great, he's sweet and adorable (in a manly way, of course) and I have to say I was
3.5 Rating

What I liked:
1. Sean over coming his fear for Amy
2. The Onslow Boys are back
3. The whole Onslow gang of friends are back...adding in Tammy
4. Humor/banter with the characters
5. There were quite a few fun scenes with a bunch of the characters I liked.
6. What Sean does in the end.
7. The ending & Epilogue
8. The Rubiks Cube (last scene with it)
9. The gang pitching in to save the Onslow Hotel
10. Amy learning new things about herself & Sean for helping her.
11. The Dictionary scene.

Getting drunk and diving into the water inyour knickers was never really going to be a good ideaespecially when your main motive was to catch the eye of one of the Onslow boys (for your friend of course). So when Onslow boy Sean Murphy rescues Amy Henderson from drowning in her knickers Amy's parentspack heroff to boarding school as punishment for her reckless behaviour.

Amy hasn't been back to Onslow since that embarrassing night three years ago but finds on her return that things at the Onslow
Oh my.. C.J. Duggan you did it again. The simplicity in the setting of your contemporary novels (this one and The Boys of Summer) is what makes this series so appealing. I loved (actually loved is an understatement) The Boy of Summer when I read it last year. I raved and raved and raved about it to anyone who would listen to me and made all my friends read it (and they ended up loving it too!). So I was impatiently waiting for the release of An Endless Summer and I was over the moon when the aut ...more
This is a combined review (sort of.) of both the previous book and this one. So, be smart and avoid reading anything you don't want to read.

I'll award this series some serious credit for being able to capture the right essence and beauty of summer. It was bright, light and sunny....and it was kind of fun. So..YAY!

I've had crushes on older guys. I remember giggling 'mentally' (Yes, I was too cool.) after sneaking glances to see THAT hot senior guy or group of senior guys in my school. I'd walk by

I love the fictional town of Onslow and what it represents. The Summer series is beautifully brilliant and realistic. Set in a small town where they all know one another, the setting is realistic and anyone who has lived in a small town in Australia, knows that it can either be a blessing, or a curse. In Onslow, they share a sense of community, and genuine warmth towards one another.

C. J. Duggan is a romantic storyteller. She has not only created likeable characters, but an entire town to fall

was really excited for this installment in the Summer series by C.J Duggan because it features Sean. I sort of fell in love with him in the first book The Boys of Summer and was hoping he would get his own story, and here it was.

I'm going to start with what I did not like first. I have come to know Duggan as being able to write relationships where romance is so intense and yet subtle (I can't even explain it) that you are dra
After loving The Boys of Summer , I was excited to dive back into CJ Duggan's world of great friends and summers by the lake. An Endless Summer did not disappoint and honestly, I couldn't put it down while I was reading. I really do love this series.

Though this is book 2 in a series, it reads much more like an independent book than a series or companion novel. Along the lines of Sarah Dessen, it’s more a story where the same characters from other stories make an appearance, yet you don’t have to have read the first book to enjoy the second. It’s a wonderful story all on its own.

If I didn’t love the Onslow Boys enough after reading The Boys of Summer, I definitely love them plenty now. Getting a closer glimpse into the hotness that is Sean w

I felt like clutching my Kindle to my chest and twirling around in pure joy after I finished An Endless Summer . That sounds so unlike me, but that goes to show just how much I loved it. I just wanted to bask in the sweet, glorious book high for as long as possible. I absolutely loved The Boys of Summer , but this was even better!

An Endless Summer takes place four years after The Boys of Summer left off, but this time it's Amy and Sean's story. I loved Toby and Tess, but Sean is so much mor

*NOTE: We (The Readdicts) received a copy of An Endless Summer by author C.J. Duggan in exchange for an honest review. We thank C.J for the book!

Although I had many problems with the MC in the first book of the Summer series, The Boys of Summer, I really enjoyed the story as it was fun and flirty- an almost perfect summer read. You can find my review of it here.
When I started the second book, An Endless Summer, I had a feeling I won't quite enjoy it as much as the first one a
A review copy was provided for an honest review. If you were as blown away with the first novel as I was then you have to pick up An Endless Summer! An Endless Summer is irrefutably fun, sexy, summery and has exceptionally written characters. Smiling, laughing, and sighing—these are all things you'll be doing while reading. After Tess McGee I didn't think any other character would be as funny or as entertaining but I was SO wrong. Amy is hilarious, snarky, and indomitable. She meets every challe ...more
books are love
Another winner in the Summer Series by CJ Duggan. the onslow boys are back and in full heartthrobbing force. It's four years later and everyone has gone on to other things. Chris is in the city, Adam is in the army, Tess and Toby are still together (yay!), Sean has become a successful tradesman but the Onslow Hotel has taken a turn for the worse. So when Amy arrives thinking she will just be getting away from her lovey dovey parents she has a surprise.

I must say I loved Sean and his flirty fun

My Musings: Way back when, I was a part of the blog tour for the Boys of Summer by C.J Duggan, so I couldn’t pass it up when I got the email for the blog tour sign ups for this second, companion novel. I couldn’t wait to see what else C.J Duggan had in store.
An Endless Summer follows the life of Amy three years after
What I Thought: CJ Duggan had completely blew me away with The Boys of Summer, so she really had to make An Endless Summer on par to grab my attention - and she did. We have a new protagonist, but all of our favourite characters are back, four years on in the future! This time, we live the life of Amy, who has come back to stay in Onslow after years away in boarding school, but the Onslow hotel is not how she remembers leaving it. The place has become a bit of a wreck and now it's up to Amy to g ...more
In the same vein as The Boys of Summer, Duggan takes us back to Onslow where all the summer love of the hottie Onslow Boys takes place. An Endless Summer gives us Sean and Amy’s story.

Their story is a nice one with less angst than The Boys of Summer. Set a few years after The Boys of Summer, Amy Henderson has grown up a bit and heads back to Onslow. When I say ‘grown up a bit’, she is 19 years old, but does still have bouts of Princess Syndrome, which she at least is able to point out herself. W
So, I am kind of embarrassed that it took me THIS long to review this book. See, I got this book as an ARC, before it was released even. And I kind of stayed up until two in the morning and read it, and then emailed CJ as soon as I was done. CJ laughed at me. I loved it. But that is beside the point. I was a huge fan of the first book in the series, you can read my review of book #1 here if you are interested!

I was so excited to get back to Onslow! But I was cringing along with Amy. Selling the
WOW C.J I don't know what to say but you have written yet another AMAZING book. Sean I am so in love with him. I love everything about him and especially the lake house. OMG!!!

I couldn't stop laughing at the personalities of each character, what they got up to and who they are as a person. You have visualised on what true friends and family are about and everyone get together and help each other and no one gets left behind no matter what!!! This here is very important to me and I like what you h

whaaaaat. this book is about Amy? ugh. I was excited to read about the same characters in the first book. awesome. we'll see how this goes.

OMFG THERE'S ANOTHER ONE OMG MY LIFE IS COMPLETE THANK YOU C.J. DUGGAN! I LOVE YOU. But omg this book made me love Sean even more! I didn't even know that was possible! I almost cried until I found out who actually bought the Onslow. Which made me incredibly happy. Wow. I love this series so much. I'm going to read The Boys of

OMG is all I have to say to this book it was the most entertaining and gut wrenching book I think I’ve ever read, it made me laugh but it nearly also brought me to tears, the idea of the beloved Onslow Hotel being sold is heart breaking, but relax my darlings all will be well.
Amy Henderson is back in Onslow after being banished to the city and is disgusted to find the beloved Onslow hotel rub down and forgotten, she takes it upon herself to refurbish it. With the help of the old Onslow crew, co

Oh those Onslow boys are smokin hot! In this book we get to learn more about the sexy Sean Murphey. With each book of this series that I read, I get to fall for a new Onslow boy. Boys they are not though. Sean is a hard working, self made wealthy man in his mid twenties. When Amy Henderson comes back to town, back to the Onslow hotel that her parents own, she is very distressed about the state of the hotel. It’s been run down to the ground and business in almost non existent. But Amy is determin ...more
3 1/2....I loved the first book on the series, I totally feel for the story and the two main characters, Sean came in third and stole all our hearts with his easy going ways and charisma....the his book came and I was...Wow! Sean's story but it was so far from the previous one that I didn't really enjoy it as much...Amy was so annoying and so self centered that I could have slapped her beautiful face more than once, she was a spoilt brat who didn't learn a thing about the first few chapters, she ...more
I came into this review thinking of all the positive things I would say about it. Such as how much I relate to both Amy's sarcastic and sensitive side, or how much I enjoyed the little and big gestures Sean made. But honestly, making a list of those plusses wouldn't do An Endless Summer the justice it deserves.
So I will just say how this book made me feel and hopefully that will be encouraging enough to make you want to read it as well. When I met Amy, I instantly liked her. She's a girl on a m

She didn't want anyone to rescue her, but he did, Sean Murphy rescued her! <3

Actual Rating: 3.5
I would've given it 4 stars, but in the end, I couldn't. It was a sweet story. I liked it, and I liked its characters (well, the main female, Amy, got on my nerves at times, but she was overall likeable). Sean was actually a combination of sweet and infuriating (so immature at times, yet so mature on other occasions. The bantering and bickering was nice; I liked it (and I usually do in a story).

The plot was predictable, especially towards the ending, but there were a few feat
The second novel in the series is a continuation from Book 1. Fast foward about three years and a lot has changed. Amy (her dad is the owner of the Onslow) is back in town after having been sent away to boarding school when she was 16. Things have changed, though, and she's come home to the pub having been mismanaged and basically run to the ground by a barkeep her father had entrusted the Onslow with. With no other ideas, Amy reluctantly turns to Sean (one of the old Onslow boys!!) to help her ...more
