Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols
Author: Jennifer Echols
Published: May 2010
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Two irresistible boys. One unforgettable summer.
Lori can't wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wake boarding and hanging with her friends--including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she's always been just one of the guys. Now that she's turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that's not going to happen--not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.
Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori's romantic summer melt into one hot mess?
Endless Summer is the sequel to The Boys Next Door. This edition includes The Boys Next Door & Endless Summer.
What an absolutely perfect book for summer. It was light, fun, compelling, and chock full of sizzling romance. I hadn't read The Boys Next Door previously, so it was all new to me, and I loved it! Endless Summer was basically just a continuation of The Boys Next Door, with an added element of every other chapter being from Adam's pov. I loved that, Adam is on the top of my literary crushes list now, and I don't know how anyone will ever top him.
I thought that Lori was kind of annoying and a lot clueless, but I definitely overlooked that in times of her awesome wit. I don't think that I've ever laughed so much while reading a book, and a lot of that was because of Lori. The other characters were funny too, and everyone played off of each other perfectly. It makes me want to find the lake in Alabama where the story is set just so that I could be around these awesome people. Too bad they're not real.
The story moved along at a good pace, though at times I felt like it was dragging a bit. That's okay though, just having the characters interact was awesome. The make out scenes were so hot, and I wish that there had been more of them. I was kinda disappointed that there were less in Enless Summer than in The Boys Next Door, because I figured that the only way to go was up, but then I guess that Jennifer Echols didn't think that anyone would read a book composed soley of kissing.
Basically this book cements Jennifer Echols as one of my favorite authors. I loved it and I'll definitely be rereading next summer!
Overall: 44/50 B+
Cover/Title Comments: I love love love this cover, it sets the mood perfectly! And the titles fit well also.
