Some summers will stay with you forever…
Callie Weaver and best friend Olivia Dixon have finally done it: put their life savings into the beach house they admired through childhood summers, on the dazzling white sand of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. They’re going to buff the salt from its windows, paint its sun-bleached sidings, and open it as a bed and breakfast.
Callie’s too busy to think about her love life, but when she catches the attention of local heartthrob Luke Sullivan, his blue eyes and easy smile make it hard to say no. He’s heir to his father’s property empire, and the papers say he’s just another playboy, but as they laugh in the ocean waves, Callie realizes there’s more to this man than money and good looks.
Just when true happiness seems within reach, Callie and Olivia find a diary full of secrets… secrets that stretch across the island, and have the power to turn lives upside down. As Callie reads, she unravels a mystery that makes her heart drop through the floor.
Will Callie and Luke be pulled apart by the storm it unleashes, or can true love save them?
Callie is fixing up a beach with the intent to make it a bed and breakfast with her friend Olivia . She has always dreamed of owning this beach house . She heads into town and unexpectedly runs in to rich man Luke Sullivan . He surprises her and offers her launch and a drink. They meet again a few more time this book so definitely a slow burn romance. This story is full of surprises and ups and downs as both main characters discover some truths about themselves.
I have enjoyed the surprises and slow burn romance in this book. This book is very young adult event though it is about adults finding love on the beach. They weren’t exactly looking for it but it happens up on them anyway. The author did a great job with the timing of the book and it moving along frm one interaction to the next. I really enjoyed the discovery of love in this book and the honesty of the characters.
