“I can’t have me out here, holding your hand, with only half of your body next to me!” he slides his hand into the back of my hair and kisses me. “Anytime you want all of me, you let me know.”
Thank you Jillian Dodd and her team for my copy of That Summer, which officially releases tomorrow!!!!!
Well… I lived my high school experience totally wrong….
That Summer takes place on a joint family vacation in the Ozarks with the Mackenzies and the Diamonds. Athletes, rich, and happy families ready to spend a summer full of making memories and lots of sunshine.
Chase has loved his best friend since he can remember, and Davaney has loved him as her best friend and the person she leaned on for everything…. or is it more?
With a little jealous and some sneaking glances in bathing suits, these two may be facing their feelings A LOT sooner than they thought. This will be the summer they won’t forget, the one they fell in love….
But will Chase and Dani be able to have more outside of the Ozarks… with age difference and the world outside as a high schooler seeming to stand in the way for Dani…
Jillian knows how to write a book that sucks you in and makes you find a little bit of yourself lost in the stories she creates between two love birds.
This is your first love.
The one you didn’t know how to hold on to….
Beware… JD is QUEEN OF CLIFFHANGERS.
Yes… 2020 is full of them for me and I will be being for the next book.
This is the 6th book in That Boy series but can be read as a standalone. The author does a great job explaining the back story, it just may spoil the beginning of the series.
What I loved:
-The family activities and memories created
-Chase and Dani’s summer romance
-Damon and Chase’s friendship
– getting a throwback to being young
– I’m from Nebraska originally so the references were heartwarming for me
What I struggled with:
– some of the conversations with parent to Dani were cringy for me. I was just thinking “If an adult said these things to be at 16 I would have thrown myself off a boat 😂.
-the beginning stages of denial with Dani… I know I know she’s young… we will give her a pass on her teenage emotions weighed by hormones and the desire to be popular
-the fact that its cold out, my tan has faded and a bikini is a no go for me.
Romance- first love
Steam-there is only way to say this….🐰🐰
