Summer Desires by Emily King is the type of book that people might take with them on vacation. It is a fairly short and easy read with beautiful characters set in sunny South Beach, California.
The plot involves a lifeguard who also happens to come from a wealthy and prominent family meeting a young middle school teacher on the beach. After a rocky start, the romance builds between them over the summer vacation months. Amy, the lifeguard, also has to make some decisions about her employment that could cause problems between her and her family.
This is a very light, fluffy, and rather shallow read with little angst, clichéd Southern California styled characters and setting, and some okay sex scenes. The best I can say about this book is that it is a fluff piece that might keep you entertained for a little while.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bella Books for an honest review.
