Only This Summer~A Review

Only This Summer by Radclyffe is exactly what I wanted and expected from this author. Add in a “cops and docs” trope along with butch and femme main characters, and it’s a wonder I’m not doing a happy chair dance just thinking about it.

Dr. Lily Davenport is burned out. The last few years as an ER physician in the heart of New York City in the midst of the pandemic has done her in emotionally and physically. With the help of her best friend Sarah, she is going to take a few months off and work as a doctor at a summer camp for teens in the mountain woodlands. Lily plans to use this time to sort out her future. Then she meets Sarah’s younger sister, forest ranger Chase Fielder. Chase loves her work in this remote and beautiful land. She has no time for permanent relationships, and prefers to be alone in the woods to having people around. Then she almost literally runs into Lily.

This really is an awe inspiring love story. Both of the main characters are easy to fall in love with. The campers, (especially Marty) will also touch your heart. The setting is well described. The romantic narrative is exactly what you expect from a Radclyffe romance.

I’m so happy I had the chance to read this novel. If you are a Radclyffe fan like me, or just enjoy consuming great love stories, then you need to grab this book.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
