Darby hates her life. Her father had a mid-life crisis and quit his job on Wall Street to move the family to Coconut Grove, Florida, to run the Seabreeze Hotel. His family always vacationed there, and when he wanted a change, he convinced the owners that he wanted to keep it the way it was, and sold it to him. Now Darby spends her senior year with only one new friend, Kate, and having to work a couple of nights a week in the hotel's restaurant.

This book is about a girl who falls in love just like everyone else. She goes through a lot with all her friends and also with the boy she "loves" she is crazy and falls deeply in love. Thats how they got the name sea of love. She is blinded by his imperfections and also loves him for who he is, but in the end its just all about her and him not her surrowndings.

I can make a text to world connection because right when you staret to like someone you have that feeling where you can never leave t

I choose to Sea of Love as an independent reading book. This book is about a girl named Darby and she moved from New York to Florida. Her father quit her job and sold there house and used it to run a hotel. Meanwhile she meets a boy that seems to know nothing about love. To find out more read the book. She has a internal conflict which she is trying to figure out if she should stay wit him.

Sea of Love is a cute Simon Pulse RomCom. Darby's parents move her family to Florida for her senior year of high school, and for the first six months she hates living there because she's a New York City girl. On New Years Eve, Darby spies a surfer boy, and wonders if she might like him.

Darby starts to be more open minded about living in Florida, all awhile trying to interpret the signals coming from the surfer she saw on New Years.

Sea of Love wasn't one of my favorites that I've read so far, bu

Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies are always a fun read. These books are not necessarily the best written novels but the stories are always fun and you know you will get a happy ending. I think some adult romances could take a note from these books b/c they are characterized well which is much of the battle in writing any novel since you want your characters, for the most part, to be endearing and relatable.

Recommends it for: love birds!
I though "In the Stars" was really cute! I really liked Darby's charactor because of how much she changed and embraced the beach life. I live in the middle of Canada, so I really like that the story took place by the beach. There were a few parts that I cringed at because of how cheesy it was, but it's deffinately one of my favorite romantic comedies!! :D

i think that this book is really good. it was about a girl who has to leave her boyfriend soon and move, but then she has to help decorate for a party and then she meets a guy from the beach. she starts falling for him and doesnt know who to tell her boyfriend now. i thought this book was really good and it moves at a really good pace.
not my favorite of the Simon pulse romantic comedies however still enjoyable. I found that there was not much romantic tension and the main complication just fell a little short for me. this may be because i couldn't identify so much with the main characters of it could just be because i am finally growing out of these books ... which would be a shame

This was a really cute and quick read. The relationship between the characters is what really sets this book apart and makes it so adorable. The personal growth in Darby is great. A quick read with lots of laughs.

I loved the personal growth that Darby goes through. The author does a great job of portraying that growth when her ex (or so she thought) comes to see her.

It's a quick read that keeps you laughing.

What a cute book! I loved the book because of the relationship she had with her mom and dad. Also I just loved Kate, and Darby's mom and dad. Her mom and dad were both so different but both completely adorable, likable, and wonderful parents!

Very formulaic, but a light teen-based summer read.

I liked how this book was all about how Darby changed from being the person that wore all black and hated Florida, to a local person who was happy, wore bright colors, and had school spirit.

Interesting teenage romance. A light read - just the right thing when you don't want to think too much or worry about a book that might have bad stuff in it. This one doesn't.
