His temptation. Her secret. Their summer.

Dani Sullivan has come to Lake Bliss to write her latest cookbook and take a breather. After the year she’s had, she deserves a summer retreat to reevaluate priorities and make peace with past decisions. But from the moment single dad and sheriff Matt Reagan shows up, she has a hard time convincing herself that a life away from Lake Bliss could beat the life she might have here.

Recently divorced Matt is ready for a new relationship, but he doesn’t want short-term—his son needs permanence, and so does Matt’s heart. Unfortunately, it’s the smart-mouthed and sinfully sexy Ms. Sullivan who catches his eye. But when Matt learns Dani’s secrets, will he still want her to stay? Or will her chance for love last just for the summer?

The Review:

If you are looking for a quick read that is fun and flirty, then you should pick up a copy of Just for the Summer by Jenna Rutland. It is a super sweet romance but what really won me over was the deliciously suggestive banter between Dani Sullivan and Matt Reagan. Throw in an adorable kid and a lovable dog and you have an irresistible love story that is quite captivating.

Dani and Matt are well-developed and likable characters. Both of them are currently dealing with life changing events and emotional baggage from their respective pasts. Dani’s mother has recently passed away and Dani is trying to come to terms with a long ago decision that still weighs heavily on her mind. Matt is a divorced dad trying juggle single fatherhood with the demands of his new job as Sheriff. Unusual circumstances bring them together but a secret from Dani’s past jeopardizes their burgeoning relationship.

The relationship between Dani and Matt is light-hearted and quite flirtatious. They share a smoldering attraction for one another and Jenna Rutland keeps the sexual tension high with their outrageous flirting and delightfully sexy innuendo.

Just for the Summer is an absolutely charming romance that anyone who likes contemporary romances is sure to enjoy.
