Caitlin was having the best first days of summer ever. She received the perfect position at her favorite water park, where the hottest guys were just a glance away, and she had a very cute co-worker, Tanner, who was a lifeguard in the pool right next to her.

Then everything changed when Caitlin saw the "available" Tanner kiss a souvenir shop girl at the employee party. And then her best friend confessed that she liked Sean, Cai
Another cute story. I love this little series. It really just makes you smile:)

I love the characters and this prove to me to be another good read to me. I can't believe her best friend dated Caitlin's brother and him, her brother kissing her friend in front of her, if you going to do PDA do it somewhere else because it could be really awkward for a sister to watch that. in the book, she meets Whitney and she doesn't like her towards the end. when she's like," no talking to the life guard." to him but does she realized that doesn't really work? cause he keep talking to her. ...more

So second book in the making a splash series and it gets finally to Caitlin side of the story telling us how she felt of her brother and her best friend. This book shows her worries, her thoughts and feelings especially about a new boy named Romeo.Feelings about the change in her group of friends expecailly the new girl who seems to have many, many secrets and a specifically big one.

Whats a girl to do when a guy you like is always around, seems to
Not as good as the first installment in this series (Making a Splash: Robyn) but good enough. In this novel we are reintroduced to Caitlin, the sister of Sean and the best friend of Robyn. In Robyn's book, Caitlin had been hurt when she found the boy she'd been dating kissing someone else. Consequently, she swears off boys for the rest of the summer. But can she really keep that promise to herself, especially while working as a lifeguard at the Tsunami wave pool? Like any girl she feels insecure ...more
Jade Parker is the psuedonym of Rachel Hawthorne who happens to be one of my favorite authors. As Parker, she has written a 3 book series that is about 3 friends who work at a water park for the summer. Caitlin is the second book and can be read without reading the first book. In this book, Caitlin has just gotten betrayed by the fellow lifegaurd that she finds kissing another employee. As a result she has sworn off cute jock boys and wants to date a geek. So when she has to blow the whistle at ...more
This was a fun break from all of the sci-fi, dystopias, and fairy tales that I've been so caught up in lately. It was fast paced, sweet, and just absolutely adorable! I love Parker's books and I intend to read the rest of this series as well! <3

Make a splash caitlin is about a girl who is a lifegard and she is work for the summer at paradise falls water park but she can't keep her eyes off this guy named romeo but she didnt know his real named but she do but she still call him romeo.I dont like how his ex girl friend keep jumping in there love story. But i like how her friends was trying to get them together,and i think that this book would be good for girl for they can know that love is still out there

All I can say is that I want a boy like Michael Romeo. He is sweet, giving, and, best of all, a self professed geek!
Caitlin is hilarious in her own right. She comes up with obscure holidays so she can eat sweets (she only does so on holidays). Once burned, twice shy seems to be her philosophy, but how about sticking around and seeing if Romeo can change that?
Maybe I am just getting tired of the teen age angst but this seemed to drag on towards the inevitable conclusion of young love getting together! I will read Book 3 so I hope it improves.
Still not disappointed in Jade Parker's writing. Caitlin is a little annoying at times but other than that another cute, fun book that made me smile while reading.
