I'm not in any position to pursue a relationship. The last one I was in almost destroyed me. But even though I know he's toxic, I can't stay away.

He has a dangerous smile and eyes that seem to see right through me. A kiss that makes me forget all the ways he could break me. And when he touches me, I become a wild thing that disregards all the walls I so carefully erected t

I wrote it :) I better think it's good, right?

4 stars! WOW....

I devoured this book in one sitting! Every damn chapter was engaging and I had a hard time putting it down! This is a well written story that would make you feel. I was frustrated with Emily- I just want to shake her and pick who she really wants, then laugh (specially when she got drunk!) and fell for Jack and Peter! I didn't know what to expect when I got this book so I was a little surprise with the love triangle thing going on and to be honest I hate.. hate love triangle spec

DNF @ 38%

I started out liking this book, it was fun and carefree, but after a while it started to morph and I had no clue what was going on. The guy I met in the beginning was nowhere near the guy now; I mean how could the sexy surfer guy possibly this man on his knees after one night? Still in my cloud of disbelief and not wanting to be left behind, I kept on reading but then it morphed again… I literally felt like I was missing some major parts of the story, maybe it will be explained later on

Ok read, with some twists and turns, it had potential to be really gripping!! Unfortunately, some parts are boring. I found the book to be a short story and it finished quickly. Some bits are unrealistic, like what happens in their teacher/student situation, I find that a lot of the chapters seemed rushed, with out depth put in to what is happening. Whats worse is; It is a cliff hanger ending and so far no indication if the next book release, not sure if I'd buy it, i hate it when a book is rele ...more

I really enjoyed this book... and nearing the end, I had a feeling that was coming.... but now I'm left hanging waiting for the sequel- which is something I try not to do. I prefer to read series back to back so everything is fresh in my mind and so I don't get upset with authors and tend not to finish or support them.

So although I know the end of the book and website have said late 2013, it's not 2014- how much longer do we have to wait?

I really enjoyed this book. Jack and Emily had strong chemistry right away, They had witty banter, funny dialogue all wrapped up in a sexy and fun read. I cant wait to read the sequel!! please hurrrrrrry!!!

The summer I said yes,,,, well when I got done with the story I'm saying No!! In the beginning it had some promise thinking this is going to be a really good story but, sorry to say it left me disappointed. The back and forth with the emotions of the characters was giving me crazy whiplash and it felt rushed to me. I couldn't wait to be done with the book sadly. The cliffhanger really? Did it really needed one. I'm not looking forward to the sequel. So over it.

This was yet another find on Goodreads, The Summer I Said Yes has a pretty decent rating and lots of very good reviews, so I decided to read it. I wish that I hadn't bothered. The synopsis clearly states that she ends up teaching her summer fling in a Freshman Art History lesson. I can never remember the American grades, so I had no idea when I started reading that Jack was only 18. Not such a big deal? Well, when Emily's 24 it kind of is. She's the TA in the lesson, it's forbidden for them to d ...more

It must be unfair to write a review when I didn't finish the book...but let me just say these 3 words to describe this book: Over the Top! Everything was over the top in this book, the characters were, the situations and the descriptions; from streaking in a party just to skinny dip in the freezing ocean? running over a raised bridge??and a marriage proposal the next day?? Can we be more real about this? I'd like to read a contemporary romance book that is not like fantasy...sigh
Oct 13, 2013 Amber rated it liked it
It was an okay book not a favorite. The book started out really well and I enjoyed where it was going until she went back to college. From there I just felt like some aspects were rushed. I can understand trying to rush a love life when your trying to forget another one but it just didn't sit well with me. At times Emily pissed me off, like me putting my nook down and taking a breather pissed. She was so worried about Jack and him being immature because of his age but she was so unbelievably imm ...more

This was a great read, I found myself being pulled in by the love triangle right along with Emily. Throughout the novel it was easy to become conflicted right along with Emily about who she should choose in the end. I predicted the end of the book, and I was annoyed with the clifhanger at the end. I really just wanted to read the next book right away. Peter is great and all but I think she will choose Jack in the end. I recoomend reading The Summer I Said Yes closer to the release of the second ...more

Wow can anyone say insane cliffhanger.. you seriously want us readers to jump out of our seats in frustration with an ending like that!

(view spoiler)

Need to meet this Nathan character though!

Great easy read, lots of gritty drama to sink your teeth into!! Only thing that annoyed me was the constant back and forth (can I say mixed signals anyone?)

When I read the title of this book and synopsis, I didn't think it would end with a cliffhanger. I thought it was a stand alone novel, but get a WHOOPING cliffhanger. The book started off really well, but then as it went along I got a little frustrated with it. I'm not quite sure where the author(s) are going with this book, but I will be looking out for the next book. I want to know how this is going to play out.

WOW what a great book. This is a book that must be read. I couldn't believe when she found out he was her student. But that wasn't even the biggest shocker. I don't think anyone say it coming at the end who Jack really was. Now I really want to read the next book. I really enjoyed this book and now she has a choice to make in the next book.

this story is silly, not in a bad way. it just, u know, silly silly.. in silly funny way (wth i'm talking about OTL )

Enjoyed this book!! Jack was really over the edge intense, but Peter is a doll! Surprised there weren't more reviews, especially because it was a steal for only $.99!! I wish there was more info available as to when the 2nd book is coming out!

Seriously, I loved this novel, even though it is a series. I laughed a lot throughout the novel at the quirky humor and then the cliffhanger ending nearly killed me, bring on the second novel to this series I say!

Good book. Not great. I got through the whole thing and then the dreaded cliffhanger!
I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS! I'm hoping Jack gets the girl...Although, the girl is super annoying.

Too many highs & lows for me in this book. Not really sure of my overall view. I'll follow through with second book & rate the series based on that.
