Loving Summer
by Kailin Gow
My Rating: 3 Stars 
Summer has always looked forward to spending her summers at her Aunt's beach house with the Donovans. To her, summers at Aunt Sookie's beach house was magical, especially getting to spend time with the Donovans - her best friend Rachel and Rachel's brothers Nathaniel, and Drew. Here at Aunt Sookie's beach house, they can be anyone and anything they dreamed. For Summer, she had always wished to become as pretty as Rachel and for her brothers to think of her as more than Rachel's friend. For Nat and Drew, summers at Aunt Sookie's beach house meant fun and escape, a place where they go to with their mom and sister for the summer, away from city life. They never thought this summer would be different. They never thought things would change as much as they did...and it all began with them falling for and loving Summer.
My Review:
Loving Summer was a good, short summer read.
I had a hard time getting into the book at the beginning, but I was determined to finish.  I am glad I did because the book did get a lot better for me (hence 3 stars instead of 1 LOL).  I think my main issue was sometimes love triangles bother me but having a love quadrilateral really was irritating at times.  She would kiss one guy while she was thinking of 2 others.  It felt like within the first week of summer she was already in "love" with 3 guys at one time.  About half way through I didn't mind the love quadrilateral so I was able to enjoy the story line much more.
I loved the idea of having almost a summer reunion at the beach house.  It was really great getting to know the supporting characters and the nostalgia that they shared.  I really enjoyed Rachel as a character. She knew who she was and really didn't care what anyone thought of that.  Aunt Sookie was awesome too.  She was that aunt that everyone would love to have and I thought it was really cool and different that she owned an acting school.
Overall I enjoyed the book.  I will definitely read the second one because even though there were some quirks that bothered me the main plot didn't.
