This was a fun, quirky little book. I first heard about it from author Ruthie Knox's comments on

"My favorite wonky hero is Aaron Barksdale, the hero of Kathleen O’Reilly’s Long Summer Nights. Aaron is a very crabby, snobby, not at all romantic novelist who lives in a cabin in the north woods and hates people. After he meets the heroine, the only sign that she’s getting to him is that he keeps killing the female character in his novel, over and over again. And then the heroi
So I'm cruising the e-book library desperately hoping for a cute little story to occupy my insomnia-filled night, and I hit on a collection of Harlequin romances. I don't usually read contemporaries, but there must be one book in there I can spend a few hours on, right? I started and quickly passed on a few, then in honor of my own Long Summer Night, I tried this one. And I was bowled over.

Kathleen O'Reilly should be writing literary fiction. No Kathleen O'Reilly is writing literary fiction disg
An excellent book that doesn't pull any punches. I adored the hero, he was so dark, tortured and Byronic. Definitely a book worth reading if you are into romances. I was not expecting anything this good and I was blown away by their relationship and the indept character analysis. This is what a romance should be. I do hope Blaze publishes more like this instead of some of the mediocre tripe they generally put out.
Kathleen O'Reilly is going on my 'buy list'. The hero in this book was in such need of a heroine, someone to prove that relationships are worth the risk. Because Long Summer Nights is a Blaze it's very, very hot... but the heart strings really pull and if you took all the 'hot' out of this book you'd still have one amazing read. Well done, Kathleen.

Dawn ♥ romance
I just couldn't get into this book. It didn't seem to be developing much of a plot. Mostly the characters were thinking about their situation or projecting what could be. I gave up and didn't finish. Journalist Jennifer takes a cabin at the same place as writer Aaron.
The second half of this book is so good! I almost gave up on it because the first half was so pedestrian and I didn't even really like the characters but I'm so glad I stuck with it.

I loved Didi. I kept hearing Edna Mode's voice in my head.
Best contemporary series romance I've read in ages. Dialogue and characterization just blew me away.

“Aaron looked hastily away. One innocent smile, and in his mind, he’d kissed her, stripped her and had her whispering his name between frenzied moans.” 0 likes
“Do you know what frustrates me?” he asked.


“How badly I want to kiss you. I hate your mouth. I love your mouth. When you talk all that blather, it’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever heard.”
