You see there’s this boy.
He makes me smile, forces me to listen, serenades me out of tune and keeps me sane, all the while driving me insane. He's really talented like that. But for the first time in since, well, forever, things are about to change. The question is, how much am I willing to lose in order to potentially have it all?

Enter a world of sweltering Aussie summers

I must stop reading series out of order. I must stop reading series out of order. I must stop reading series out of order.

I had the pleasure of reading Forever Summer along with creating some graphics for the release and although I did buy the prior books in this series, I hadn’t yet had a chance to read them. So I went into the story of Adam and Ellie blindly.

I’ve really enjoyed the experience of reading CJ’s books. They have this sweet quality to them that just leaves you with a huge smile o

I've finished The Onslow Boys!!

Forever Summer wasn't my favourite, but I loved reading about how Adam and Ellie's relationship blossomed. They are good together, and it was lovely to see a friendship turned romance.

Finally the last of the series is released! This is the fourth full length novel or seventh in the series of the Summer series. I read the entire series last summer and have been anxiously waiting for this one to release to end the series. Then again, maybe there will be more but there has now been a story about all the key characters so I think this is the end.

It seems fitting to close the series with Adam and Ellie's story. They have been present throughout the entire series, often offering u

What did I think of the book!? What did I think!?

I'm not sure? maybe how perfect a finish it was to a very special series.

Stumbling across this book series is probably the happiest accident I've ever had. The worst part was having to wait an entire year, but alas we cannot live in book world constantly life does go on around us. In the end CJ gave it her all and by joe was it good enough! It makes having to wait seem like it was only yesterday I was Reading Chris' story.

4.5 Perfect Ending Stars

I feel like I was waiting for this book FOREVER!!! It was worth the wait... it was the perfect ending to a wonderful series. I absolutely love this series and I would recommend reading all the books (including this one). Forever Summer is a friends to lovers story and had a little angst and a lot of love. I adored it and I am sad it's over (please say it's not really over)!! Can I move to Australia and live in Onslow????

I really wanted to like this book. I expected to like it because Adam and Ellie were a highlight of the earlier books. But I was disappointed unfortunately.
I agreed with Ellie every time she called herself a bad friend. And every time she said she was going to be better ... she acted like a bad friend again. I flat out didn't like her in her own book.
There was not enough page time with Adam and Ellie together, which surprised me. I hated that she had moved away from her friends, family and Adam

Sooo, the first three books were out in a year, and now you're making me wait a full year to read the fourth book? Why?!?!

The Summer Series is one of my most loved contemporary romance series. I have been waiting forever for this book! Every time the release date got pushed back I wept inside so I was more than happy to finally get my hands on it! It was every bit as swoon-worthy as the other titles in the series.

The Onslow gang (boys) is honestly the best <3 The storyline might have been cheesy but I gobbled it all up. I was so on board with the friends-to-lovers trope. It worked out so beautifully.

Everything I wanted and more. I loved the way this story was written, showing how strong their relationship is and how they were always there for each other. I loved Ellie and Adam. I loved seeing Allie grow. I loved seeing all the other characters from past books. I just loved the whole book. I laughed and swooned and it left me with the biggest smile on my face. The book was perfect, although I wouldn't object to an epilogue ( or short story of a certain wedding). Its very bittersweet saying g ...more

I have been waiting on Forever Summer for quite some time. Obviously Ellie and Adam have both been pretty main characters since book 1, The Boys of Summer, as they are both best friends with Tess. In The Boys of Summer Ellie and Stan started dating. I was surprised to see them go their separate ways as the books progressed but was pleasantly surprised to see Ellie and Adam draw towards each other. I do so love a best friends-turned-more story.

Ellie is a party girl. She's been known to get trashe

Forever Summer  is the last of the Summer series. Lets all just take a moment of silence to grieve this wonderful world in a time and place where things where simpler.

Okay. So. Where to begin?

Ever since book one, Ellie and Adam have been my favourite relationship to read about. I was so excited when I found out their relationship was going to become something romantic! (I wonder what their ship name would be?

I love to read C.J. Duggan's books. They are comfort reads for me when I need a feel good sweet romantic story that I know will bring a smile to my face every time. There isn't a lot of depth to Forever Summer. You aren't going to find any deep issues or gripping character analysis here. But I thoroughly enjoyed this story of two lifelong friends who come to see that they are in love. I love the Aussie-ness of Duggan's characters. I love the banter between Adam and Ellie. It is obvious that thes ...more

I can hardly believe that this series is actually over. This was one of the first NA series that I truly loved – the first book had me hooked, and I’ve enjoyed them all! This final installment gave me what I’ve been waiting for since the very first book, though – Ellie and Adam. I’ve always loved their banter, the strength of their friendship and the pull between them (even when they were “only friends”). Best friends
I really liked this series. It was fun and really cute. I was really looking forward to this book. Adam and Ellie are two of my favorite characters of the series. I felt like I waited forever for this to come out!

The story was just as good as the others although there was a lot of angst. I would have preferred more romantic moments but hey, this is more like a guilty pleasure kind of book. I just wanted more Adam and Ellie; not Ellie constantly whining over Adam. That was the majority of the bo

Forever Summer (Summer, #4) by C.J. Duggan

I can't give this book anything else than five stars. I'm sad I went through this whole book in two days. It's over. It's really over. I'm never going to read about these characters again and I'm not going to lie: It hurts. I came to love these characters over the past year. All of them. They're all so different and have such great dynamics with each other. They're honestly a group of friends I wish I was a part of. This was the first new adult series I fell in love with and up until now the on

I honestly can't explain why I'm so attached to these characters (maybe because it's the 90s? Small town in Australia? Group friendship?) but reading the final book in the series left me with a bitter but nostalgic taste in my mouth.
This was a very Classic™ Summer Series installment. I've always loved Adam and Ellie's banter through the books and it was delightful to see them finally getting together.
I just wish we had 1. an epilogue or one last chapter to see all the characters in the future

Why are there always scenes where my heart hurts, it's like this author pulls on all my heartstrings, "I would have given anything for Adam to take my hand and drag me onto the dance floor, but the way he was looking at me, I knew that was not going to happen." Adam isn't a bashful boy, "Adam wandering into the bathroom, stark naked, grinning from ear to ear as he opened the glass shower door and stepped inside. I had instinctively covered my nakedness with my loofah and hands, staring wide-eyed
