Review: One Short Summer by Jasmin Miller

one short summerTitle: One Short Summer

Author: Jasmin Miller

Year of publication: Out today! The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review

The heroine: Dancer Monica ?

The hero: Writer Gabe Mitchell

The blurb: A sweet, flirty, and heartfelt romance with two roommates that spend one enthralling summer together.

After her car accident, Monica believes her dance career is over, despite the positive outlook everyone else has. Instead of trying to get back on her feet, she works on perfecting the art of couch surfing.

Famous author, Gabe Mitchell, doesn’t fare much better. On top of watching his roommate letting her life pass by, he also suffers from a major bout of writer’s block. Hoping a change of scenery will get them both out of their rut, Gabe takes matters into his own hands and whisks Monica away to his own personal haven.

What neither one of them expects is the attraction to each other to bloom even though Monica will leave Brooksville in a matter of weeks. Their time together is filled with skimpy bathing suits, sexy fantasy book inspirations, hot tub make-out sessions, and new job prospects.

It’s plenty to reignite their creative flames, but will it be enough to turn their one short summer into something more?

Standalone or series: This is book two in the Brooksville series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: I enjoyed this book so much! Gabe and Monica have been roommates for a year after a serious injury puts Monica’s career as a dancer on hold. Gabe has been there all along, helping her through the dark times and lending support when she needs it.

When Gabe decides to get away to a vacation home he owns so he can try and work on his latest book, he persuades Monica to go with him. It’s while they’re holed up together that they finally take note of how in sync they are, how well they know each other, and how important the other has become in their lives. When they finally start to explore the slow burning desire that has been there for some time, they suddenly can’t get enough of each other.

But their summer romance threatens to be abruptly ended when Monica, who’s now recovered, finally gets the opportunity she’s been waiting for with her career… but it means leaving Gabe behind. Will she truly be able leave him? Will he be able to let her go? This is a well-written, sweet romance that draws you in and makes you want to read to the very end.
