“School may be out, but class is still in session…
After a hectic school year with her classroom of first graders, Nova Grant is desperate for a break. So when her best friend invites her to spend the summer down in Miami, taking the vacation is a no-brainer. The only thing is, her best friend’s husband had the same idea, inviting his friend Guy Thompson to stay in the condo Nova was already guaranteed.
Set up or accidental… Fate or coincidental… the attraction between the two is undeniable from day one. But with their days under the sun numbered and plenty of lessons to learn between them, Guy and Nova still find themselves teetering the line of lust and love, even if it’s only for the summer…”
“I was wondering if you wanted to come down and visit me this summer. Well… for the summer.”
It is no secret that Alexandra Warren is one of my favorite “new to me” authors. I just discovered her this year and seriously, what took me so long? Anywho, I have been making it a point to make my way through some of her catalog.
” If Only for The Summer” introduces us to Nova and Guy. I devoured this book! The pacing was perfect, and it was very well developed. This was a very easy read. I’m an educator and found the characters very relatable. I did find myself wanting to call Nova up to tell her, “Girl, you are not the nanny. Enjoy that vacation!” lol. One thing that I wanted to highlight was how Warren shined a light on positive co-parenting. So often in books, co-parenting ( especially co-parenting while trying to date/ meet new people) is usually a touchy subject so Mariah was definitely a breath of fresh air.
The romance was super cute, steamy, and fun. I was smiling the entire time while reading! Overall, “If Only for The Summer” was the perfect summer read. I would love to see more from these characters in the future.
