First thoughts : Quick read for young adult readers. Story moved too fast. Not enough character development. Unrealistic elements to the story.

Synopsis; Our main character Ava is getting ready to go to her high school graduation with her best friend, her boyfriend and his twin. Ava is excited to get on with her life away from high school as she and the gang are planning to live together while attending the same college. However things turn for the worse when the gang get to graduation. Sudden

The Low Down: The four-year-long relationship between Ava and Jason is over. Breaking up with her right before their high school graduation ceremonies, Ava is shocked to discover that Cally, the girl that caused the on again/off again portion of their relationship, is back in town. This was supposed to be the best summer of their lives, and it has turned into something else completely.

Then Ava meets Adrian at a frat party. There is an undeniable connection between them, but he’s leaving for a dr

Wow. Definitely one of the weirdest books I've read in awhile. So, sooooo many things that I just didnt get. First, Ava's 18 and this guys 22? What on earth do a high school graduate and a college graduate have in common? They almost never spoke, and the book was mostly filled with Ava and Lilly's conversations. Also, she moves in with him after 2 dates? And her parents are all like "Whatevs" about it? I know for a fact, 18 or not, my parents would not let me move in with a dude I only knew for ...more

Since this book is about summer, reading this can be compared to a time when you first set your feet on a beach you've never been before. You don't know the people, the twists and turn of the place and how the waves on that part of the ocean would come to you.

Whenever I embark on a new reading that is always the exact feeling that I get but each experience is greatly different from the other. A Summer To Remember is a read that is filled with never ending unexpected turn of events. I know, I alr

Adrian doesn't waste any time in going after what he wants and I find that extremely attractive, "okay, this may sound strange since we just met, but I want you to know something. I like you. I don't know what happened the night we met, but something told me you were different than any girl I've ever met. There was just something I can't really explain, but I have to tell you because we leave tomorrow and I don't know if I'll get another chance. I knew I would regret it if I didn't.

I hate it when models on the cover don't represent the characters in the book:

"I always loved this top because it fit all my best features perfectly, but wasn’t too revealing in the chest. Not like I had much to show, anyway."

If Ava doesn't have big breasts, why does the model looks like she's a B or a even a C?

A model so thin with huge breasts, is out of proportion.
I'm not saying she isn't pretty it's just not reality.

Coming from a girl who has very small breasts

I have to say I loved this book!! I love Adrian he is just so perfect! and I love how Ava didn't just get stuck to Jason, I get annoyed with female characters who the male is trying to push away and they are like no I love him,can't love no one else. Not so real life! They are a lot fishes on the pond, lol. Can't wait for book 2!

It's a nice and fresh reading, a different story but it goes too fast, doesn't have an end and there is no book 2 yet, so it is a disappointment.

When the love of her life dumps her, and she moves in with her rebound guy two weeks later, something is wrong.

I understand that people jump into relationships, and I'm cool with that. Not judging here, but I don't buy it when she claims to already have a love of her life. This girl, Ava, claims that Jason is the love of her life, her safety net, her everything. He then dumps her graduation day. Then, the same evening, she runs into this Adrian guy. After knowing him for almost half an evening,

I was super excited to get the opportunity review A Summer to Remember! I couldn’t wait to dive in and read it.

As I was reading it I kept thinking, yep, it was what I was looking forward to! Ava was cute and sweet. She gets her heart broken graduation day and meets Adrian (cool name by the way!!!!) and they fall in love (yeah, not so much on the insta love, but I can deal with it. I was a little skeptical that her parents let her have as much freedom with Adrian (who had graduated college) as th

When I started reading this book there was no mention that it was part of a series so it was a bit of a shock when it just ended, I assume from the title having seasons in there that there'll be four books one for each season but it would have been nice to know that before I started.
I liked the blurb for this book even though the cover is a little weird, she looks so uncomfortable laying like that with her arms by her side, anyway I digress I actually didn't mind this book and if it wouldn't hav

I have mixed emotions about this book. It was decent. The writing was good and there weren't mistakes to distract.

That being said, there were a few spots that lulled but I liked the story. The romance was great. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters too. Jessica did a great job developing wonderful characters.

I wanted to know what was going to happen with Ava and Adrian so bad!!!! And then. The book just ended. The story didn't resolve any loose ends at all. I was so disappointed. O

Some parts are very unrealistic like whose parents would be so cool and open to someone your daughter just met. Mine would not! I can't even think I could ask my parents to move in with someone a month after my high school graduation!

Also, how can someone jump into a serious relationship that quick after a very tiring, on-off 4-year relationship? Hmmm. Don't you want to relive the easy-going single life first?

Am I too old for this kind of romance??? I used to love reading young love but the way

This is a great book and I really hope there is going to be another one. On the day of her high school graduation, Ava is broken up with by her boyfriend of 4 years. She goes to a Frat Party that night and meets Adrian, he just graduated from college. Adrian goes after what he wants with Ava. Adrian is a great boyfriend and he really loves Ava and tries to be as sweet as he can be and supportive to her. I'm really looking forward to the next book because it has to continue with the way it ended.

All I can say is that this girl moves on fast! Ava breaks up with her guy before summer can even begin. By the end of the same night she's halfway to being head over heels for a guy she meets at a frat party. A frat party! She shacks up with him soon after that. And when I say soon I'm talking like a week. I think the book is supposed to take place over a two month period but it really feels like two weeks. Everything about this book is shallow. the characters aren't even likable. I'm not sure w ...more

Seriously? This was the worst written book I've ever read. So amateur-like and a lot of cliches.
"i felt like a little kid on Christmas." Who writes that in books nowadays? Is that how it ends or is there a next book 'cause that was not good closure. Ava just met the guy and suddenly she's moving in with him? She doesn't come home for a few days and when she does she want's to move in with a guy she went on only two dates with and all her parents say is "we thought you were already living with hi

a pretty short book about first loves and broken hearts, bee relationships and super fast advancement (ie. moving in together, sleeping together, saying I love you)...very good as far as plot and drama, story could have been a little longer to drag out the "milestones" in the new relationship. I enjoyed both Ava and Adrian even Ava and Adrian's friends were alright....I felt the passion between Ava and Adrian even if they didn't really have a converstaion and get to know each other....I gave it ...more

Ummm ok what the hell did I read?

Ok first off there were a few mistakes in the book that annoyed me.

2. Filled with Ava and Lily talking about their relationships but not off having one.

3.this bok moved super fast that summer was over before I turned the page. Adrian had no development who is he? What kinda of man is he?

Did it bother anyone else that his parents were just random. The author needs to work on this book make it a little longer, Ava needs to develop as well

Summer Love

I had just finished Reasonable Doubt 2 yesterday and was looking for something to read. I had purchased this book when it was free I loved the cover of the book. So I decided to go ahead and read it. I loved it. I also finished it in one day. I am a little disappointed that it end ed in a cliff hanger. I went to buy the second book but it isn't available yet. Loved Ava and Adrian's romance. He is a keeper. I love the summer romance books.

Meh. it was okay
it had a lot of good points - it wasn't overly sexual or laced with crazy erotic scenes (for which I'm very grateful)

but....not a lot happened. Two people met, two people got to know each other. There was a little drama but it went really smoothly - as did everything else.

and then it was over....just...meh....just a few months in a new relationship. Nothing to really make this one stand out to me.

The was a very cute story, waiting for part 2. Your on/off again boyfriend of 4 years dumps you right before graduation. He dumps you for the same reason he always does, yep time to move on. I would so have done what she did, party yep I'm there who wouldn't be. If some hot dude you felt a connection with followed me around, hell ya bring it on. Taking chances is what life is about. Good book

I loved this story!

Despite Ava having had a very recent bad breakup, Ava and Adrian have an instant connection to each other that they both want to pursue.

They are so lovely together, but they still have their ups and downs and jealous moments like any other couple.

I am really looking forward to reading the next book (view spoiler)

This was an interesting short story about loss and love. I didn't really like it that much.The story moved too fast. So many different things took place in like 100 pages. The story also felt like it was incomplete, like there wasn't really an ending. I feel like there could have been more to it. It just wasn't as good as i expected.

I won this book through a giveaway and was not sure I would like it at first. Boy was I wrong! I couldn't stop listening to it! Caught up in the characters, I found myself laughing and enjoying every minute of it. I was disappointed that it was such a short listen though. I wanted more and was not please that it ended so quickly. Now, I'm anticipating the sequel Seasons, #2!

Meh... not a fan. This was just too immature for me. Didn't care for the writing style and the pacing was way too fast. I've read love at first sight type books before but I just couldn't get into this.

Loved this book. It was a really sweet story. It was a little sad towards the end considering they had to separate with hardly any time being together. Can't wait to see what comes next. Def one you want to read.
