The Bradshaws have owned a beach house down the coast from ours for as long as I can remember. Every summer since I was six, we’ve vacationed there.
Russell, their youngest son, was my best friend growing up. He taught me how to spit and punch like a boy. He gave me my first beer and first kiss, which was terrible by the way. We spent many days and nights commiserating together about how our parents knew nothing and were so uncool.
Casey Bradshaw, Russ’s older brother, was everything I thought I wanted in a boyfriend. He was cool, mature, and very hot. Each summer I tried and failed, to get him to notice me as more than Russ’s friend and the girl from down the beach. The last summer I was there, he broke my heart.
It’s been six years, and my best friend Aimee has decided we need a vacation. The last thing I expected was to be back at the beach. Sometimes we don’t realize what we need has been right under our nose all along, and sometimes it takes a little push and some alcohol to admit we were wrong.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I was given this book by the authors for an honest review.
When I was given this book, I was actually kinda surprised. Heather doesn’t do comedy. Full Stop. Heather does throw your kindle at the wall, angst inducing suspense. Not comedy. So, imagine my complete shock when I am reading this story and laughing my ass off….the tree scene…guys…I died!!!
This is a story about 2 kids who grew up at the beach together. They were besties. Willow and Russ. Like with most childhood summer friendships they lose touch. Life fast forwards and Willow is sad, broken and needing a change. What can cure the broken heart of being dumped by your boyfriend? A summer at the old beach house with your bestie.
Willow and Aimee are attacked by a wild dog on the beach and just who happened to be the owner of said dog? Russ her childhood bestie. They two start to pal around and Aimee leaves when the romance starts to sizzle……and crack you up at what all happens when they get drunk or have sexy times with taco…just read it ok.
I am a huge fan of Heather’s books. This one was super refreshing to read. It was light. It was sexy. It was just FUN! I mean so many “OMG YESSSS I remember that as a kid” moments in the book. I totally think if you need just something FUN to read this is the book for you.
