This was the summer that would change my life.
No more being what everyone expected. No more doing what everyone else wanted.
So when Luke came into my life, I decided to keep him a secret. Maybe he as a dead–ringer for notorious Hollywood bad boy Trent Yves. And it was possible that everything he told me was a lie. And yes, I was probably asking for trouble. But all I saw was Luke—sweet, funny, caring—someone who would let me be the real me.
But which was the real him?
When I read the premise behind The Summer of No Regrets I was expecting a cute little fluffy contemporary. The cover didn’t improve that any. it was that but it’s also the sort of book that should top your “to reads” list. I say this so often I’m fearing it’s becoming cliche, but there was a depth to this book that I didn’t expect.
Brigitta’s grandparents passed away and since then she’s been somewhat misplaced. She has a blog in which she talks about her life and does a bit of celebrity gushing/commentary. (That is reason enough for me to pick this title up! Anything with a blogger and I’m there.) When a celebrity bad-boy lookalike shows up living next door, Brigitta tries to keep her distance. Then in a rare cougar attack, she saves his life and they slowly become friends. The Summer of No Regrets follows Brigitta as she matures and becomes one with herself.
I love Luke, he’s sweet and thoughtful. But he’s so sketchy. If I was interested in a guy who disappeared often with little to no excuse, I’d lose interest pretty quick. I don’t care how hot he is. I also love that there is a bit of a “nature” lesson thrown in. That gives the book a few extra layers that made it completely enjoyable for me.
