Quiet seventeen-year-old Tess doesn’t relish the thought of a summertime job. She wants nothing more than to forget the past haunts of high school and have fun with her best friends before the dreaded Year Twelve begins.

To Tess, summer is when everything happens: riding bikes down to the lake, watching the fireworks at the Onslow Show and water bomb fights at the sweltering Sunday markets.

How did she let her friends talk her into working?

After first-shift disasters, rude, wealthy tourists and a taunting ex-boyfriend, Tess is convinced nothing good can come of working her summer away. However, Tess finds unlikely allies in a group of locals dubbed ‘The Onslow Boys’, who are old enough to drive cars, drink beer and not worry about curfews. Tess’s summer of working expands her world with a series of first times with new friends, forbidden love and heartbreaking chaos.

All with the one boy she has never been able to forget.

It will be a summer she will always remember.

Warning: sexual references, and occasional coarse language.

    I truly love these series. The dipper you get into the books the better they get. I fell in love with the first book thinking the next ones won’t be as good because usually they aren’t but I was so wrong everyone of them are so great. They just have something special about them that want you to be like “ Man! I want this to happen during my summer !!” I simply love these books and the author is such an amazing writing I love their work.
  • Great Read 😊

  • Adorable Read

    By L. Swan
    This was an amusing cute read that I liked more than I thought I would. The storyline and characters everything fell together very nicely, I enjoyed the interactions with all the characters not such a long one voice monologue. Would of appreciated different points of views, hearing from the other characters but this book was so nicely done that it didn't bother me for I loved the epic reveals that are placed perfectly throughout to keep the reader on edge. The concept is adorable, summer love, first job and such; getting the emotions all rallied up for the adventure. The male lead is handsome sounding would of liked to hear from his side more to gage his reactions and thoughts for a more better understanding of who he was, the female lead was crazy obsessive and represents every 17 year old that's gone through that awkward stage of life at that age but with more flare. The supporting characters were awesome they had the enough voice time that they weren't forgotten giving the reader an impression of who they are.
  • I loved it!
