Brynn Turner desperately wishes she had it together, but her personal life is like a ping-pong match that’s left her scared and hurt after so many attempts to get it right. In search of a place to lick her wounds and get a fresh start, she heads back home to Wildstone.

And then there’s Kinsey Davis, who after battling serious health issues her entire twenty-nine years of life, is tired of hoping for . . . well, anything. She’s fierce, tough, and she’s keeping more than one bombshell of a secret from Brynn — her long-time frenemy.

But then Brynn runs into Kinsey’s best friend, Eli, renewing her childhood crush. The good news: he’s still easy-going and funny and sexy as hell.

The bad news: when he gets her to agree to a summer-time deal to trust him to do right by her, no matter what, she never dreams it’ll result in finding a piece of herself she didn’t even know was missing. She could have real connections, possibly love, and a future—if she can only learn to let go of the past.

As the long days of summer wind down, the three of them must discover if forgiveness is enough to grasp the unconditional love that’s right in front of them.

Review of The Summer Deal

Review (5 Stars):  The Summer Deal was a wonderful story about finding love by letting go of the past.  Brynn has had a lot of heartache and returns home to make a fresh start in her life.  She never imagined running into the two people that she had shared a love/hate relationship from her childhood.  Brynn always had a crush on Eli but she knew that they could never have more with him because he was close friends with her mortal enemy, Kinsey.  By agreeing to be roommates with Eli, she finds out that she had everything all wrong and Kinsey had a tragic secret that she was afraid to share. Especially with Brynn, the one person that might be able to change everything.

I loved The Summer Deal and I absolutely got sucked into this amazing story.  Brynn, Eli and Kinsey were able to make amends of the past and help each other have a bright future just by being around one another.  Brynn and Eli were perfect for one another and sometimes you just have to give love a chance.  The secret that Kinsey kept from Brynn was a big one but one that almost made me cry because of everything they had been through. One of my favorites from Ms. Shalvis and I’m ready for her next amazing story.
