Synopsis

Summer by Summer by Heather Burch

When Summer took a job as a nanny for a couple vacationing in Belize, she imagined it would be a fresh start before starting college in the fall. And while she adores her charge, Josh, she can't say the same for her employers' oldest son, Bray. He's cocky, inconsiderate, and makes her feel she's a chore he has to put up with. In short, he's everything she dislikes in a guy.Bray had a plan for the summer: party, hang out with friends, and forget all the responsibilities waiting for him back home. But every time he's forced to be around Summer, her dour, serious mood sets him off. Not to mention she has a habit of picking up on what he already knows is wrong with him.Then the two find themselves on a dive trip gone wrong, stranded on a remote island. As they focus on survival, their differences melt away, and they find being together may be what both needed all along.

Reviews

Summer by Summer by Heather Burch is a fast-paced book that you'll have no trouble devouring while hanging out on the beach just a few steps from the ocean. The tension between Summer and Bray picks up within the first few chapters, and you immediately get a feel for both of them. They each have their flaws, but they also each have their own compelling reasons for why they act the way they do.

The opening of the book is actually a snippet of the ending, and that uncertain moment will be in the back of your mind throughout the entire novel, giving you yet another reason to fly through the pages.

Summer's charge, Joshie, is wonderful, and she gets along great with her employers. Unfortunately, she can't say the same for their older son, spoiled party-boy Bray. At the urging of his parents, Bray agrees to take Summer out as part of a tourist dive group, but things go horribly wrong.

Heather Burch's novel Summer By Summer is a new take on a classic survivor story. Despite its lackluster beginning-the animosity between Summer and Bray comes across as forced and without any real motivation-this book develops into a sweet romance without ignoring the overarching survival story.
