I really enjoyed this story. The Coles are a strong family and Ana is no different. She was determined to prove that she was in charge. Jacob was not one to take any crap. And he definitely was going to make Ana stay in line. In the end the closeness became about more than work as once the threat was closed love lived on.

I liked Summer Vows. However, I had some problems with this book; sometimes it was a bit cheesy with the language and romance, Ana being completely okay with the marriage arrangement, her weight loss and fatigue being caused by her homesickness, Jacob's ease and comfort with Ana choosing where they will live without concern and the most unbelievable the ending....Now that the bad brother is dead the good brother will now take over the Record Company and all will be well?..... too tidy!

I love, love, love Alers books. All of her books are so romantic. The sex scenes are not vulgar, but so ramantically written. The family is nothing to play with. I would like to read more about Ana and Jacob.

I normally read Rochelle's books in a day or 2 but for some reason this one was harder to finish. While I felt it had a great storyline, it was slow and a lot of repetitions. I found a lot of grammatical errors and the story just seemed a little bit slow and boring. I will try to finish the other 2 books in this Hideaway Wedding series and hopefully it will be better reading.

Summer Vows is another great book from the Cole Family Series. Ana Cole and Jacob Jones were both strong characters who did not let their financial status affect their love for each other. Looking forward to reading Jason's story next. A great read!

Summer Vows A Hideaway Wedding by Rochelle Alers
ISBN: 9780373534777
Family bet is who is to wed before New Years. Each has put up a million dollars, in their name, as an endowment in their alma mater.
The eligible ones would be Jason and Ana Cole, twins and their cousin Nicholas Cole Thomas. None even want to marry as they are so involved in their business careers, til they meet a very special person that will change their lives.
Although this is part of a series I felt the characters were well def

This book tell the story of Ana Cole and Jacob Jones. Ana is facing a threat and has even almost got killed. Her family is really worried about her. Her cousin, Diego seek Jacob's assistance to protect her while the authorities seek out for the killer and its hirer who wanted her dead. Jacob, who is on his vacation has reluctantly agreed. Ana, who after the incident of getting shot, was basically house bound.. and with Jacob around her most of the time, the attraction is definitely sizzle. Overa ...more
This was a great love story. I loved the relationship between Jacob and Ana. I loved the suspense and the way things turned out between the main characters. Ana was strong willed and stubborn. Jacob was just as stubborn as she was. So this made for a nice flowing story.

Rochelle Alers, never disappoints her readers. Her stories are always interesting.

Twins Jason and Ana Cole are at the top of the music world running the company started years ago by their father. Ana is nonsense and handles the business part of the company while Jason has an ear for a good voice together they work magic in the music world. Their world is turned up side down bu jealousy.
This was an okay read. It was not as good as the other books in the Hideaway Series but was enjoyable. It would have been a little better if there was a little more action in the ending like some of the other books in the series. I still look forward to reading the other books in the series.

Thank you Rochelle Allers for the romance of Ana and Jacob. I remained on the edge of my seat hoping the unlikely pair would find love in the mist of danger. I loved the writing style, the exotic locations and many of the supporting characters.

Ana and Jacobs romance story was delicious. Enjoyed the sexual tension they shared and the release of the tension was even more intense.
