Amy was fifteen in the first book and now she has returned to the Onslow at nineteen for the summer. She thought she would hang out like old times but her dad left the place to someone who has let it go downhill. It has many memories so she decides to work on fixing it up with the help of the Onslow boys. It is a special place for the town so everyone attempts to bring it back to it's glory days to prevent her dad from selling it.
I loved Sean Murphy in the first book! I think everyone loves Sean. ;-) He has a bit of a playboy reputation but he can't help that he is a rich, handsome, and also a nice guy. Sean goes to a lot of trouble to help Amy in any way he can. Amy is quite stubborn though. I like that she wants to work and not just let a man take care of her but after awhile it was a little frustrating. Sean wants to help her and help the Onslow, which holds lots of great memories for him, so if he wants to buy some paint let him buy you some paint! They do seem to play well of each other and I enjoyed their flirty interactions to the fullest. Although at times I was like why do you not have Sean naked yet?! LOL
The rest of the gang from the first book returns as well. Tess, Toby, Ellie, Stan, Adam, Chris, Ringer all were willing to help Amy. I love the group dynamic between all these friends and how supportive they are. They are so hilarious. I had many laugh out loud moments. Anyone would want to hang with the Onslow boys. A big part of the book was also just Amy figuring herself out and what she wanted to do. In the end I was happy with the way her attitude changed. I'm already excited for the next book and very curious who the main couple of the story will be! This is the perfect summer read!
"Mmm, I overheard some horny housewives in the supermarket, and apparently you, Mr. Murphy, can leave your drill piece under their pillow any day of the week."
"I can't exactly walk the publican's daughter home."
"You can always walk me to my bedroom."
"I understand why you're spoilt within an inch of your life." I frowned puzzled. "Who could help but want to give you the world."
