Blog Tour, Review, and Giveaway: An Endless Summer by C.J. Duggan

An Endless Summer (Summer #2)
Release Date: 07/17/13

Summary from Goodreads:
Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.

“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.”
I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.”
A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?”

After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henderson – the Onslow publican’s only daughter – is sent away to suffer a fate far worse than any other punishment:

Boarding School.

Three years on, a now nineteen-year-old Amy returns to Onslow for the summer. What once was a cauldron of activity with live bands, hot meals and cold beers, the Onslow Hotel now lies dark, deserted and depressing. All fond childhood memories of loitering on the hotel stairs and eavesdropping on customers’ colourful conversations are in the distant past.

How had her dad let it come to this?

With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good.

In an endless summer, Amy soon realises that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.

My Review
I've so enjoyed another summer in Onslow. Hanging with The Onslow Boys again at the pub on the lake is just what my summer needed.  C.J. Duggan has written another light, fun, sexually charged, romantic summer read. 

This time around little Amy Henderson is all grown up. After spending the last three years away from Onslow, Amy decides to head back to escape her parents "honeymoon" phase. She is horrified by the state of her childhood home and becomes determined to bring it back to it's former glory. Luckily for her Sean Murphy has also returned to Onslow and he is just as determined to help Amy succeed. 

Things I loved About An Endless Summer:
  • The sexual tension between Amy and Sean is fabulous, and I found myself many times thinking "Just kiss already!!!!" I'll let you find out for yourself how that goes. 
  • So many of the wonderful characters from The Boys From Summer have returned.
  • Adam (I really love him)
  • The Onslow Hotel (I wish I had had a place like that to hang out in way back when I was a teen.
If you are looking for a happy, toe curling, summer read look no further!
