Two irresistible boys. One unforgettable summer. Lori can’t wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends—including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she's always been just one of the guys. Now that she’s turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that’s not going to happen—not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori’s romantic summer melt into one hot mess?
Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols stars clueless Lori McGuillicudy who gets in romantic entanglements with the boys next door. The cool thing about Endless Summer is that it is two books in one. The first book is The Boys Next Door, and the second book is the sequel, Endless Summer.
Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols was an exceptionally quick read for me. I read all 587 pages in one day. I found this to be captivating. It absolutely captures the essence of summer fun. I especially enjoyed the marina/lake setting. I feel that isn’t something I get enough. I like books where there is a water setting. Also, the male characters were a lot of fun. The interaction between the Vader brothers is hilarious.
I found Lori to be incredibly annoying. It is hard for me to believe anyone could be so dumb. Yes, let’s date one boy to make the other one want me. In real life, he’d get jealous for like a day and then move on, at least that is my experience. It’s hard for me to get past that.
I’ve seen great reviews for Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols, but ultimately, I thought it was okay, not terrible, not perfect. I will try some of Echols‘ more serious works, hopefully I will enjoy them more.
