The Boys of Summer (The Summer Series) (Volume 1)

It seemed only natural to nickname them the ‘Onslow Boys’. Every time they swaggered in the front door of the Onslow Hotel after a hard week’s work, their laughter was loud and genuine as they settled onto their bar stools. I peeked through the restaurant partition, a flimsy divider between my world and theirs. I couldn’t help but smile whenever I saw them, saw him ... Toby Morrison. More

What it's about: Tess has scored herself a summer job - and it's going to be one summer she won't ever forget! From sneaking out to hang out with the Onslow boys, to working in the local hotel, the summer fun is just beginning! But wait, there's more! Just add a drop of drama and a few slashes of comedy and I present to you - The Boys of Summer.

What I thought: This book kept me up until the wee hours of the morning because I literally could not force myself to put it down - I just had to know what happened. Everything about The Boys of Summer absolutely blew me away. Firstly, how gorgeous is that cover? Yes, very eye-catching. Can't wait to have that baby on my book shelf! Next, C.J. Duggan has created this fantastic little town called Onslow - which I desperately want to exist because its sounds awesome! Then there are the Onslow boys which you will have absolutely no choice but to fall in love with - it's a given everyone. Toby, Sean, Stan and Ringer. Toby we get to know quite well and believe me guys, he's the fictional character of your dreams. Read it and weep girls - you've found him. Sean is a strong second runner up for me - I almost loved him as much as Toby, it's true. Stan and Ringer we don't really get to know too well, which is a shame, but we know them enough to know we'd want them as friends. This story is about Tess, but the Onslow boys really do steal the show away. But what I really love the most, is watching Tess go from wallflower extraoidanaire to super-hot babe flirting with all the boys, sneaking out of home. Watching Tess go on this life-changing journey is extremely touching and you just can't help cheer for her. Of course she couldn't have done it without a bit of help from her best friends Ellie and Adam!

I will be recommending this book to anyone who listen basically. Do yourself a favour and go grab a copy now!

The Good: Can I just say everything? Yep. Everything.

The Bad: The next book, isn't released for, like, forever. *Sigh*
