Last Summer Blog Tour Stop



Hello lovelies!  I am overjoyed to have Rebecca A. Rogers stop by the blog today.  I have a simple review for you today, but I hope you'll still stick around and read it.  Also, at the bottom of the page, is the tour schedule so make sure you go check out the other blogs participating!!!!! :)



Last Summer
by Rebecca A. Rogers
Release Date: July 18, 2012

Purchase / Goodreads
All Chloe Sullivan wants to do is get through the summer. Her life has been in disarray for more than six months, and she knows the only reason her parents made one final trip to Sandy Shores is because of her. They are, after all, two seconds away from filing for divorce. When Chloe stumbles upon a boy in one of her childhood hangouts, she’s in for more than just a relaxing summer vacation.

Logan Andrews is exhausted, famished and, quite frankly, kaput. His parents kicked him out when he refused to attend a rehabilitation program for his drug addiction. Now, he wishes he would’ve listened; he’d be receiving appropriate medical care rather than living in a dingy, godforsaken shack, holing up from money-hungry drug dealers.

Logan’s godsend arrives in the form of Chloe, who can’t hold her tongue when it comes to matters of the heart. They’re both in for a rude awakening when Logan’s past catches up to them, though. Can they escape the drug dealers showing up at every twist and turn, or will things end much worse than they ever imagined?

I can safely say that I have never read a book like this before. What with the main characters’ issues and the story line and the setting, it’s in a class of its own.

From page one, I couldn’t put down this book. It was exciting, fast-paced, and interesting, and the writing was bordering on really good. It’s kind of an inspirational story, what with Chloe helping Taylor deal with his addiction. I loved how the point-of-view kept switching between Chloe and Taylor; it helped complete the story. And I loved the ending too. It was really exciting, and I just love happy endings :p

Even though he was a drug addict, I still really liked Taylor. He was funny, cute, sexy, and totally swoon-worthy. I’m just trying to ignore the whole drug part, but, to be fair, he did fix it.
I also really liked Chloe. I liked how she was nice, smart, and didn’t give up on Taylor. They make a perfect couple.

This book is definitely for older young adults (very descriptive adult content) but I thoroughly enjoyed it! :)

Growing up, I pretended to be characters from books, movies, and TV shows (especially Xena). Now, though I don’t run around my backyard and freak out the neighbors with Xena calls and invisible weapons, I still live inside my imagination, and it’s better than reality.

Me in a nutshell: I'm an avid gamer, daydreamer, chocoholic, coffee addict, animal lover, and own way too many books and shoes.
