Well, I toughed it out and finished this thing. I have a serious problem with not being able to put a book down if I don't like it - I NEED to finish it, it's a compulsion. Before I hit 100 pages I knew I wanted to put this down, but no. Here we are.

This story started off as a cute 4 stars. I was enjoying it, it was easy and light. But then Sky started getting a little crazy. Then Dylan started going a little stalkerish. Then Sky got worse. Then Dylan. This was a whirlwind of messy, unnecessary

"Love isn't something predictable, Sky, and doesn't follow rules. You can’t decide who to fall in love with, or when. Love and logic don't go together, but when I'm with you, everything makes sense."

Summer Sky is the first book in the Blue Phoenix rock star romance series. Perfect for fans of captivating steamy romance, hot and brooding British rock stars, and strong, sassy heroines.

Sky changed her life for a man once, and she has no intention of doing so again -- even if he is a six-foot, tattooed rock god who makes a mean bacon sandwich.

Did I like this? Was there potential? Would I read another one? All of these questions I can’t answer. I’m underwhelmed. I think maybe because I’ve read this story before with more likable characters. It started out well. I liked the initial meet up & where it was going before Dylan went all 16 year old boy at the beach “crushing” on a girl. Then it started going downhill. I hoped it was going to get better when the second half switched to dual POV BUT nope no such luck. Also the endless pursuit ...more

I was extremely lucky to be a beta reader for this book, and feel as if I have followed the characters journey for quite a while, and have loved every part of it.
Sky Davis is the down to earth, straight talking girl from next door. She's naturally gorgeous and has an equally natural personality. After being cheated on by her lame and lacking boyfriend of 5 years, she decides it's time to take a break. Leaving her home, ex boyfriend and job.

This book totally sucked me in and I read it in two sittings. Apart from a couple of minor annoyances, I really enjoyed it. Love this author's writing style and will definitely continue the series.

The author brings you into the heart of the story from the get-go and straight away my interest was piqued. Sky is a likeable MC and I loved Dylan at the start; though later on I became more suspicious of his motives and wondered if he was trustworthy. A hot, troubled rock star god? Yeah, this was def

Sky Davis is heartbroken when she comes home to find her boyfriend of 5 years in bed with another girl. She needs some time away to clear her head, so she takes off to her grandmother's beach house. On the way, she gets rear-ended by a pretentious guy in a very expensive car. He doesn't want to share his contact information with her, which freaks her out, so she decides to flee the scene. Imagine her shock when

Sky Davis would totally be my friend in real life. She is naturally down to earth, a sweet and spunky type of fierce female that I love in a novel. She is totally, heartbreakingly gorgeous which is why I couldn't see anyone cheating on her. But, her jerk ex did after five years of being together. Sky just needed a getaway. She goes to her childhood cottage- where her grandmother lives- and rents out the place- or so she thinks. After getting into a little fender bender, with an extremely attract ...more

The most frustratingly good book I've read so far this year, a five star plus read ...

Summer Sky by Lisa Swallow is a rollercoaster ride of frustratingly good romance. The story follows Sky Davis and rock star God Dylan Morgan. They meet unexpectedly during a holiday at a beach house in Broadbeach where both are booked in to rent at the same time. They decide after a fair amount of banter to stay together and enjoy their holiday but of course romance ensues. As far as Sky is concerned it’s a sum

Well, first everyone should know that this is a cliffhanger book. I guess the second one is coming out in June, so blah! I knew that this was part of a series, but since it had to do with a band, I was hoping that book two would be about a different guy. Unfortunately, that's not the case. There comes a point...about 70% in, where I wanted to just flip through because the whole thing was so monotonous and boring. It was the same thing over and over. Dylan and sky meet at the beach, she learns he ...more

I loved this book, absolutely loved it, except for one thing…I have to wait for book two to see what happens. Dang Cliffhangers. Seriously, this is a wonderfully, exciting book that kept my emotions in turmoil from the first word to the last sentence. The humorous dialog in the opening chapters had tears rolling down my cheeks; then as the story progressed, the tears were pouring for other reasons. There were times in the story when I wanted to reach in the book and shake these young, confused, ...more

I liked the writing style, however it felt a little dragged out, and ended on a cliffhanger. I will be continuing on to the next in the series as overall I enjoyed it.

Summer Sky is a story of two people meeting at a time when they were escaping from reality and hoping to find themselves in the process.

Sky seemed to think too much of sleeping with Dylan, or obsessed about his body. Granted, Dylan was hot and I would probably be thinking the same thing (lol), but I just felt like all her inner ramblings were about that topic alone. Despite wanting him, she didn't want to be in a relationship with him. She wanted him but not his life. It was frustrating how all

Ms. Swallow is a fabulous writer who has the ability to write riveting dialog and create strong visual imagery. I was sucked into Summer Sky from page one...

Sky Davis' life has just flipped upside down. A five year long relationship ends (with a snort out loud comment), leaving her heading to the beach house her grandmother owns in Cornwall to sort out her life. She's more than a little surprised to find a handsome and enigmatic man occupying her refuge.

Thanks to her grandmothers inattention, Sk

I enjoyed this read, was a good in between book I was able to put down and get things done but was still interested to pick it up and continue when I had the time. First half is only Sky's pov then second its both hers and Dylan's.

This is about a Famous band member Dylan getting away from the life he is struggling with and Sky escaping to put her life back together. When their paths collide Sky has no idea who Dylan Morgan really is, he does tell her he is famous but just not how famous.

The books starts off with a Sky and Dylan meeting because they have a little fender bender and it was an obvious fore shadowing of their chance encounter that would lead to a future romance. I actually loved this book. It was not hard for me to get into and it was a very quick read. They meet and fall in love in such a short time but it really didn’t feel unrealistic. It is sort of the fairytale type that all ladies love to have. Boy meets girl, boy falls for girl minus the happily ever after..b ...more

I downloaded this book for free not expecting much but I actually enjoyed it. The author is British and it's set in the UK although it did read like an American book but as that's mainly what I read anyway, it wasn't a problem. I like the theme of the story which is a famous person falling for an ordinary girl.

There is a bit of angst in the story as things do not go smoothly for Dylan and Sky due to the pressures of his fame etc. Dylan has been in a band since he was a teenager but now he is not

I really enjoyed reading this story! Sky, is taking some time off after breaking up with her boyfriend of five years, when she meets Dylan on the way to the little beach house that belongs to her grandma. She has no idea who he is, and doesn't really care, all she wants is some time on her own. Turns out Dylan is a huge deal and he's also taking some time off from the 'real' world.
They get to spend time together and realise their lives intertwined a long time ago. Sky didn't take crap from Dylan

A very good read! I have already started the next (2nd) book (even though the 2nd book cost me $3.99). I was so invested in the 1st book that I felt blackmailed into buying the next book because the first book just kind of ended in mid sentence. I have fallen victim to the "whole" listed amazon sale of $0.99 for a limited time deal. The advertisement didn't state that this book has a as^hol# ending that requires you to buy the next book to get some kind of result. I liked the book but the ending ...more

I was lucky to be given the chance to beta read this novel, and I'm so glad I did.

I love Lisa's writing, and once again she's delivered. You'll fall in love with these characters instantly and a Although this is a romance novel, the plot is rich enough to satisfy anyone. The story moves along at a nice pace, there are moments where you can truly feel the characters' struggle and times when you'll laugh out loud. It has a little bit of everything.

Definitely recommended.

He clearly needs psychiatric help for being that dependent on another person. She acts like every little thing is the end of the world. This is true love, clearly. The end of the book seems to be thrown in for shock value and cliff hangers but will probably end up being a misunderstanding in the next book. I will read the next two since I got them as a boxed set so I certainly hope they're better than this one.

Skimmed this. Didn't like it. The girl was so dramatic and whiny ugh she was like a middle schooler. No gracias.
And the plot was dumb. Rock star over the rock life runs away from it all and falls madly in love in 3 days. So much so he is forever changed. But will jealous band mates let them love in peace? Will all the groupies get the hint. So cheesy and cliche. It's been done before and done better.

4.5 Stars!! MUST READ Series! I am loving it. Dylan is a yummy tattooed rockstar and Sky is headstrong and hilarious heroine! This story starts out as two people literaly crashing into each others lives and its a fantastic ride seeing their story play out through out the book. The twist at the end had me screaming at my kindle but I luckily had book 2 ready to go.
