Between the cold weather and her boyfriendless existence in Minnesota, Summer is ready for sun, sand, and boys in the Florida Keys. And by the end of the first day, she has more than enough to keep her busy: Adam, the senator's son, has looks, power, and all the money in the world. Diver, the mystery man, is mellow, intriguing, and definitely unique. And Seth, the perfect guy...only he has a girlfriend. But with new friends, cute guys, and miles of hot white sand, Summer's in for more trouble than she thinks....show more

So this book was... long. I was pining for this book since the beginning of summer; it was the perfect summer read! Then I started reading it.. and the story never seemed to end. I feel like when I was 200 pages in, that nothing REALLY happened.. I guess that's the point of why it's a summer read right? It's still summer here, weather goes up to 35 celsius (HOT!) so its not the season, but I think its about what represents summer. In summer we have all the time in the world to do ANYTHING, while now, I'm scrambling to juggle my studies, going out, sleeping, reading, and updating our blog! So very stressful, takes the joy out of a summer read. Now let's get down to the actual reviewing. While this book was long, I did find it entertaining, atleast in some stories (with a book this long there had to be more side stories). It is told from almost 3 people's POVs, Summer, Marquez, and Diana. At first I found summer na�???�??�?�¯ve, Marquez great, and Diana just plain old depressing. But as the story progressed and Summer started falling for every guy alive (really?) and Marquez with her ex-boyfriend trouble (again enjoyable), and Diana finally getting out of her funk and standing up for herself (you go girl!) I started looking forward to Diana's chapters the most. I truly admired her resilience to finally stand up for herself, no matter how big and rich the opponent is. Summer honestly dragged the story, its first deciding who she loves out of all these guys, then keeping him at an arm's length because she's afraid of getting hurt (summer fling and all), then it's about her family issue (I don't want to post spoilers). I just feel like her story dragged a bit. All in all, I think I read this book at the wrong time so my review might have been different if say, I read it during my summer break, but I'm glad I finally got to read it and get it out of my system, no more pining!. The next book in this series is "Tan Lines". I probably wouldn't buy it, but if I could borrow it or find it online for a cheap price I might get it and save it for next summer. We always want those summer books at some point.show more

Summer Smith doesn't have the perfect life, or a life that anyone would want at all. She is a major klutz, always falling and bruising herself. And the guy of her dreams, Sean Valletti, not only doesn't notice her but has found someone else to be his potential girlfriend. After trudging home through the snow and cold weather, Summer gets hit with some excellent news. Her aunt had phoned her mother to see if Summer wanted to come to Florida and visit. From the cold, hard weather to the bright, warm sun, the answer is definitely obvious to Summer and she is whisked off on a plane on her way to Crab Claw Key. Even before she arrives, Summer receives some interesting news from a lady on the plane. The lady, who turns out to be a fortune teller, tells Summer that during her adventure in Crab Claw Key, three men will enter her life. Sure, it sounded pretty lame to Summer, since she couldn't even get Sean to notice her back home. But before she knows it, her life turns into The Bachelorette, with three guys, Adam, Diver, and Seth, all showing interest in her. One may not be trustworthy, Summer can't even begin to figure out another, and the last one is totally taken. Summer knows that this summer will definitely be interesting! Aside from the boy problems and the horrible living space she must occupy, Summer gets to experience the drama with her cousin, Diana, who she hopes to win over and Marquez, who of course has some troubles of her own. Three novels in one book, going through June, July, and August, will take not only Summer but also the reader on a journey full of heartache, mistakes, and endings that will surprise us all. BEACH BLONDES literally has "beach read" written all over it. The perfect book for some fun in the sun.show more
