Our 4 Star Review
At 23 Lizzie is back home after her relationship of 5 years ends. When she meets sexy Irishman Teagan the attraction is instant but he has to go back home at the end of the summer, they decide on a summer fling and enjoy their sizzling chemistry. They know so little about each other's outside lives but Lizzie finds herself falling for him anyways. With a departure date looming and surprising secrets revealed will the two have more than a summer fling?
It took a bit to get into the story emotionally Lizzie is flighty and unsure what to do with her life, she enjoys drinking and makes no apologies for being herself. I loved how she was able to find happiness in any situation and just go with the flow. The Irish brood she befriends are great I enjoyed the banter between them and how they added to the story. Teagan is fun and carefree and seemed so open with himself but as we got on in the story I could tell that there was more to him than meets the eye.
As I read the story and it got more and more depth it became like I was right there with Lizzie feeling her emotions it added so much to the story. Excited to read the next book and see how things turn out.
