Summer by Summer - Heather Burch

Book Description

A story about Summer and Bray, two college students trying to find their identities, overcoming differences, and realizing they aren’t so different after all.

A new contemporary romance YA novel from Heather Burch, perfect for summer reading.

When Summer took a job as a nanny for a couple vacationing in Belize, she imagined it would be a fresh start before starting college in the fall. And while she adores her charge, Josh, she can't say the same for her employers' oldest son, Bray. He's cocky, inconsiderate, and makes her feel she's a chore he has to put up with. In short, he's everything she dislikes in a guy.
Bray had a plan for the summer: party, hang out with friends, and forget all the responsibilities waiting for him back home. But every time he's forced to be around Summer, her dour, serious mood sets him off. Not to mention she has a habit of picking up on what he already knows is wrong with him.

Then the two find themselves on a dive trip gone wrong, stranded on a remote island. As they focus on survival, their differences melt away, and they find being together may be what both needed all along.

My Thoughts:

A long time ago in a previous life (ok, it was actually 20 years ago), I was a Nanny for 2 different families.  I am easily drawn to books that have a Nanny in them, or feature them.  This book was no different; my initial draw towards the story was due to the Nanny aspect.

But then I started reading it...and could not put it down (I know, I've said that about a few books lately, but I'm being more selective since I'm short on time, which in turn means I am only reading outstanding novels!).  There's adventure, romance, mystery; you name it, this novel has it!  I would highly recommend this for a quick summer read, for those looking for entertainment and fluff reading!
