this went about as well as i expected. but at least i finished a book?

this is the meh-est thing of all time. bad, unrealistic dialogue, bland writing, boring characters, zero chemistry of either a romantic or platonic variety. an all-around snoozefest.

going to give this a hard no and move on.

this is as much of a review as i'll ever write / 1 star

“Wishing was futile. Wishing was non action.”

This was a YA contemporary romance about a girl following a recent break-up.

Cassidy was an okay character, but she did come across as running away to avoid Gavin her ex. Bryan was a bit of a stronger character, and seemed to deal well with his recent accident which had left him wheelchair bound.

I love Robin's other books, so I was beyond excited to get my hands on this one.

I loved Cassidy and Bryan. They're both struggling with something and although their situations are different, it's similar. I loved reading their first meeting turn into a work relationship turn into friendship turn into a relationship. Of course there are some snags, but it's angst-lite.

I really enjoyed this cast of characters and the camp kids were adorable. My only complaint {if you could call it that} is that I

Robin Constantine writes such charming summer YA contemporary romances. Every time I finish a book by her, I'm filled with a certain lightness that comes from grinning hard all throughout. The Season of You and Me was no different. It's a heartwarming book about love, family and friendship and a book that I think is worth everyone's while.

After a painful breakup, Cass runs away for the summer to her dad's bed & breakfast, hoping to get over her first love. I adored Cass' character because she ca
This book is such a sweet and endearing read!! I really liked Bryan a lot, with his laid-back, cheery personality and dark sense of humour. Also, it is hilarious when he jokingly deems certain privileges as 'wheelchair perks', showing that he has come to terms with his constrains and attempts to make the best out of it. His relationship between Cass is just so cute and sweet, especially those pool and beach moments. I like Cass too, with her friendly disposition and also how she realistically de ...more

Actual rating: 3.5 stars

The Season of You and Me is the perfect beach read - it's a light, fluffy and quick read. Everything screams at me that I should be loving this book because I am a sucker for light contemporary beach reads, but the thing is, I just couldn't connect with the characters and the story. Maybe it's because it reminds me too much of Summer of Sloane, although I know that it wasn't any of the authors' intention. Or maybe it's because I am annoyed by the repeated use of #wheelcha
A cute summer read. This needs a sequel soo bad. I need to know if Bryan and Cass stay together after the summer.
Super light, super sweet, super forgettable contemporary read.

Thank you Edelweiss and Harper Collins for the eARC!

okay I have to say that I loved this book so much that it pains me to say there was two things that bugged me. I want to start with these two things first before I go into my review because I mean it really bothered me. This is a story about two teens looking for a change before senior year. For Cassidy she is looking to get over her breakup with her boyfriend and for Bryan he is trying to move on with his life after his accident caused him to be a paraplegic stuck in a wheelchair.

Cassidy Emmerich's boyfriend, Gavin, cheated on her and she is devastated. She was supposed to spend the summer with him, but obviously, plans have changed. Cassidy, or Cass, wants to get away from it all, so she decides to spend the summer with her father's family at the Jersey Shore. She couldn't think of a better place to heal her heart. She gets a job working as a camp counselor and in turn, meets a lot of new people, including Bryan Lakewood. Bryan isn't your average teenager though. Due to ...more

Despite owning all three of Robin's books I've half-read one of them and haven't even looked to read the other one. But when TSOYAM arrived I couldn't wait to start it partly because the summary and what Bryan's character has to deal with sounded like a great diverse YA novel with some great potential. Although at points the story worked but at other points not so much. The novel is told in dual PoV and I just wanted to scream at Cassidy to get over her ex-boyfriend and see Bryan who was right i ...more

Another great romance novel that I thoroughly enjoyed.

This was about a girl named Cassidy who is going to live with her dad for the summer to try to move on from her ex, Gavin. She meets a guy named Bryan who has to live the rest of his life in a wheelchair because he is paralyzed from the waist down after an accident. Of course, there's some summer love ;)

This book switched perspectives every other chapter between Cass and Bryan and I really liked that. I personally enjoyed re
Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! The Season of You & Me was a novel that spoke of heart and healing, and potentially finding love in the least expected moments. It was a beach-y summer book perfect for beach-y summer weather. A quick read filled with equal parts fluff and angst that I read all in one sitting, complete with a smile on my face at the end.

Review: Told in alternating dual perspectives, we learn the story of two young teens and the summer they discovered their strength of char

More depth with her relationship with her parents, and info about her life outside of boys. Like. Her nana said she and Emma needed to get some hobbies and that's spot on. Who was she before Gavin? How did their relationship and breakup change her? It seemed like it did, but since we didn't see her before Gavin, even in flashbacks, so it's hard to say. But I liked the story and I l ...more

Robin Constantine, you continue to raise the bar for all of your books.

There’s a reason why all of her books will end up on my shelf, an insta-buy that no reader could ever regret. The Season of You & Me might be my favorite of hers yet. Prepare yourself for a serious book hangover, because I didn’t want this one to end. I wanted more of Bryan, more of Cassidy, and more of a small island town on th

Fairly quick read. Overall it's a decent book but I did have a few issues.

This is a book that mostly skims the surface of issues and doesn't really dive very deeply into any of them. There are people and situations that are presented that would have made for very interesting exploration that never happens. For instance, Cassidy has slight disconnect at first with her father and his family that could have been explored and developed. It barely scratches the surface and left me wanting more. On th

I thought this had been recommended to me, but I guess not. This had some good elements, for sure. I loved Cass' relationship with her half-brother, Hunter. I liked the relationships among her and her family, even with a divorce and re-marriage, it was refreshing in that not everyone hated one another or there was constant angst and drama and oooooh. I liked that Bryan is a quadriplegic, and yeah, he has his bad days and he's not happy about the situation, but he doesn't want t

Everybody knows that finding a good book that keeps you interested throughout the whole book is really hard to find at times. The Season of You & Me written by Robin Constantine is one of those very rare books. This isn’t just one of those cliche teen romance books that make you lose interest right after you start it. Some books don’t give enough detail about what exactly is going on and leave you second guessing on where the character stand with each other. After reading this book I am satisfi ...more

Personal Response: I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked how the author showed both sides of the story and went between the two main characters. The story was told from Cassidy and Bryan’s point of view, which helped the reader understand each person’s feelings. The characters developed throughout the entire book. They made each other see things differently and gave each other hope. I was able to relate to some situations in this book which made it easier to read. Overall, this book was ve ...more

I had a hard time getting into this book, but that was more my issue than the book. The book I read right before this one was so amazing and I couldn't get it out of my head, and it hindered my enjoyment of this for the first little bit. But once I got into it, I really loved it. And Bryan, oh my God, I loved Bryan! His chapters were by-far more enjoyable than Cassidy's. I love his dialogue and his thoughts. He was real about what he was thinking and how he was feeling. I didn't get that reading ...more

After the first few chapters I wasn't sure if I was going to like this or not. However, I ended up thinking this was a decent book. Bryan was a nice guy. I was glad that he was able to handle being a in a wheelchair. I'm not sure I would have been that okay. I was glad that Cassidy was okay with it too. I was also glad that she was able to get closer to her dad and his family over the summer. If you're looking for a nice summer read this is one I would recommend. ...more
