"Anna is dreading another tourist-filled summer on Dune Island that follows the same routine: beach, ice cream, friends, repeat. That is, until she locks eyes with Will, the gorgeous and sweet guy visiting from New York. Soon, her summer is filled with flirtatious fun as Anna falls head over heels in love. But with every perfect afternoon, sweet kiss, and walk on the beach, Anna can’t ignore that the days are quickly growing shorter, and Will has to leave at the end of August. Anna’s never felt anything like this before, but when forever isn’t even a possibility, one summer doesn’t feel worth the promise of her heart breaking…."

As I have said before I am a totally romance junkie. Nothing can make my heart melt more then reading about two people falling in love. This story is very simple. Two people falling in love over summer and dreading the ending of summer in which one must leave back home.

From the very beginning of this book I smiled, a lot! I love watching both Will and Anna meet and be all nervous. I love reading their feelings and seeing them go on first dates. It made me want to fall in love over and over again. Anna and Will have a great summer with passionate love that you never want to end. It will always be something that they will remember the rest of their life.

The thing about summer love is the ending. I knew it was coming because nothing broke these two up. The fear crawled into Anna like a disease and she started to pull away. I understood her fear. I felt the fear for her. I was glad that she was able to see past that and spend as much time as she can with Will. I loved the way the book end. It was a bittersweet ending that had so much love in it, it was overflowing the pages. The love was strong and never ending.

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy  Reading!
