Have you ever read a book that subverts all the tired tropes in one of your favorite genres, while also paying homage to everything that your trashy self absolutely loves about said genre? That's how I felt about FEELS LIKE SUMMER, a book I picked up on a whim because it was free in the Kindle store and because I'd liked the other book I'd read from this author (LOVE AND OTHER CHEMICAL REACTIONS). I wasn't sure how this book would be abl ...more
Jett is a great character: awkward, difficult, dragging herself out of a toxic relationship with a shitbag guy who tells her she's sexily broken so they belong together blah. In other b ...more

Feels Like Summer is achingly swoony, relatable, and authentic. I was squealing and fangirling over it while reading. It was a wondrous experience. Once again, Six de los Reyes delivers. If you love a well-balanced romance with a trope, “everything is fun and games until someone fall in love vibes,” you’re looking at the right book
The story follows Jett, who was roped into pretending to
The angst was a little suffocating, and honestly, if I were the heroine, so was the hero. The couple and the relationship just didn't feel like it had enough oxygen. But if I were the hero, it would feel like she were taking pieces of me. And he's all just waiting for her to show up. I foun ...more
FLS was a fast paced, fun and hot (really hot :P) read exactly what I want for my summer. It has all the music, the boys that make me fangirling, the steamy scenes, and the drama.
I really liked the MC (Jett), she was fierce and at the same time cool. She takes no shit from anyone and she has this confidence that I want. Haha. She feels so real and her experience rel ...more
Feels Like Summer brought me back to life. It's such a good romance book, you all. I literally recommend everyone to pick it up and read it. Six writes really great otps and the interactions between them are some of the best I have read in books in general. She drews them out and makes us hurt and be in pain but in the end it's so worth it. I can assure you this.
There are rock boy bands and it's glorious. I love the ...more
The Summer Storm series has unlikable heroines and chill heroes. It's a combo that I love.
In this book Jett is cynic extraordinaire and Adrian is just trying to move on from a breakup that broke more than a relationship. What I love about the book is that Jett is seriously an unsympathetic character and I almost feel there's no redemption arc for her. She's borderline, almost, too close to the line, nasty. She's cold, disagreeable and basically only thinks a ...more
Hands-down my Top 1 read of 2020! *LOL, jk. my brain isn't organized enough to properly rank books*
But this was really REALLY great, and again, I had to berate myself for waiting so long before I read this bec wow, I had been wasting time leaving something this good unread in my shelves!
It had ALL the things I want in a book: all the sex, all the love, banter, a complicated hero, an even more complicated heroine (I wanted to hug Jett s ...more
This story is narrated in the first person present POV by Jett, and she's a big part of why I loved it. I enjoy this author's writing--I've read one previous book of hers--and with Jett, she's created an irreverent, funny, sometimes sarcastic, often cynical, and entirely wonderful female prot ...more
Five-minute girlfriend. This is what Jett signs up for when she meets Adrian and his band Arabella at beach music festival Summer Storm. One kiss and the attraction is too electric to ignore, but Jett has no room for love and Adrian is Mr. Relationship who’s getting over his recent breakup. The solution? Keep it simple. Keep it casual. For three months (that’s the rule about breakups, right?), Jett helps Adrian move on and Adrian sh ...more

The first few pages made me crave for more. All throughout the book, I feel loved, happy, and angry. There are times that I, can relate to Jett especially on friendships and fears.
Overall, I love this book. It feels refreshing to read a unique love story that ...more
Feels Like Summer is funny, steamy, sexy, swoony, and fluffy all in one. I loved it, and I think you will, too. ❤

I wasn’t sure I was going to like this in the beginning but it was such a cute read? I honestly feel like there needs to be more to this story! Or I just want more! It was a short read, but the author was easily able to get character and relationship growth so well. Along with making every character their own with their own amazing characteristics. I’m honestly going to miss every character especially Adrian, Jett, and the band. Can I have more? I miss them already
it depicts a healthy relationship with a beta hero. the heroine is trying to cut off a dysfunctional and extremely toxic relationship which puts some obstacles in the couple's relationship to work through. there's a lot of nerdy fangirling over video games and bands which i loved. since i also have really painful menstrual cramps it was great to see how the hero organises pads, medicine and changes the sheets. <3 ...more
Right off i loved Jett and the Arabella band boys. They all had these very different personalities and yet meshed so well. Adrian my adorable son, Franklin i don't even know what to say about this guy he was pretty funny, Michael Brian (and his legendary abs) *praise hand emoji* lol, Kenny who shockingly had more pull as an intern than expected. All the guys so fun.
I loved ...more
Just to be clear - neither “fixes” the other. They both grow and open themselves to vulnerability but they also both put in the work to do so for themselves.
I do believe that with every new story, the author is challenging herself. And it is very apparent in this story because it's darker and steamier than her previous works. Still, Six is able to deliver.
What was the story about and what I liked about it:
Guy is recovering f ...more
1. Amazing character development in a mere 186 pages. (view spoiler)[Jett is still trying to remove herself completely from an emotionally abusive relationship, and seeing her finally believe that she deserves happiness and something more really struck the heart (hide spoiler)]
2. Adrian is such a sweetheart. Just the sweetest. I want him to stress clean my room, thanks.
3. Guest-starring Trainman!!! From Grumpy Kim appearances to Shinta Mori men ...more
I still liked the book though, it reminded me of "Atheists Who Kneel and Pray" by Tarryn Fisher, but this was way less messy. (And better, tbh). I've highlighted a lot of stuff, there are some really good quotes here and ...more
Fun start that led to something a bit more complicated with a prickly but wholly relateable heroine - but thanks to the steady, sweeeet hero, this remained fairly low angst and swoony.
I also loved the band dynamics and how they brought Jett into the fold and how there was no shaming of Adrian's ex by Jett.
This one is on KU and I know I'l be reading a lot more from this author! ...more
Also I just really love Jett. ...more
News flash: this damsel is not in distress. In this story, the damsel is the dragon.
"You don’t get to save your heart from breaking by pretending you don’t have one. That’s not how this works. You think you can control everything with your rules but that’s also not how this works."...more
There’s a lot to love about this book - STEM heroine with a fun job, cinnamon roll rock star hero with awesome band mates. But I didn’t quite love it for some reason. I wish there were more plot happening outside their relationship.
