“The day Brigitta accidentally flings herself into the lap of a guy she’s never met, her friend Natalie is convinced he’s Trent Yves, egotistical heartthrob-in-hiding. When the boy, who calls himself Luke, is nearly eaten by a cougar, Brigitta finds herself saving his life, being swept into his spectacular embrace and wondering if she wants Natalie’s fantasy to be true.
As the two spend the summer together raising orphaned cougar cubs, Brigitta still can’t be sure of his true identity. But then again, since her grandparents’ death, her father’s sudden urge to give away all their possessions and become a shaman, and her own awkward transition from girlhood into a young woman, she isn’t sure of anything. What is the truth? More importantly, can she accept it?”
This book is not what I expected, yet it took me by surprise.
When I got this book off of netgalley, I thought I was in a summer beach romance. Nope. Not at all. Instead, it’s about a movie star who is looking for peace and finds it in a small town. I loved this plot. A movie star in hiding? Unexpected love? Yes, please.
I love the tag of the book. “What happen when you fall in love with a lie?” Cause that is what has happened. Brigitta runs into the new kid and friendship forms right away. I liked that they bond over simple things. Like taking care of animals. The small moments they had together without everyone around them really is what made me fall in love with the characters.
The beginning of the book was slow for me. It took me till about 100 pages in to finally get into the book. I am glad that I stuck through it and finally got into the characters emotions. The emotions flowed nicely between the characters.
Now, the love interest. The best part for me is the whole revealing part. I was so dying to get to that part!!! It went down as I thought it went but with so much more. There is so many emotions flowing and the search for “was this love real” that it kept me reading till the last page.
The Summer Of No Regrets is a surprising and delightful romance! The meaningful relationship that is created only makes you want more. The Summer Of No Regrets is a great read!
I give it 3 BITES!
