An Endless Summer (Summer #2)
Release Date: 07/17/13

Summary from Goodreads:
Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.”
I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.”
A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?”

After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henderson – the Onslow publican’s only daughter – is sent away to suffer a fate far worse than any other punishment:
Boarding School.

Three years on, a now nineteen-year-old Amy returns to Onslow for the summer. What once was a cauldron of activity with live bands, hot meals and cold beers, the Onslow Hotel now lies dark, deserted and depressing. All fond childhood memories of loitering on the hotel stairs and eavesdropping on customers’ colourful conversations are in the distant past.

How had her dad let it come to this?

With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good.

In an endless summer, Amy soon realises that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.

I love the SUMMER series! This is a fabulous follow up to book 1, The Boys of Summer, and it makes me want to take a trip down under. This is definitely an Australian beauty of a book. Does that sound corny? I don't care! I absolutely love every single one of C.J.'s characters. They are heartfelt and realistic and relatable.

An Endless Summer follows Amy, who was a minor character in book 1, and this story happens about 4 years after The Boys of Summer. All the wonderful characters from book 1 are back, and Sean Murphy, who was probably my favorite minor character from book 1, plays the leading heart throb in this exciting and romantically suspenseful  follow up. The friendships, relationships, and overall heart of this book will amaze you and you will be completely draw in to the life that these characters live. Trust me, you will fall in love with each of them and beg for more.

You can read An Endless Summer without having read The Boys of Summer, but book one introduces the reader to the group dubbed "The Onslow Boys" and in my opinion, you will totally be missing out if you don't read Toby and Tess's story. I'm certainly looking forward to book 3! I can't wait to see who this one will follow. I have some pretty high hopes, and so far C.J. hasn't let me down one bit. So check it out guys! You won't be sorry!
