THE ENDLESS SEASONFreelance graphic artist Caitlin McGraw is living the hipster life in San Francisco when a jury summons brings her home to North Carolina. But doing her civic duty wasn’t supposed to include a reunion with Seth Street, the celebrity Olympic medalist—and Caitlin’s teenage love. She fell hard for Seth at thirteen, only to lose him when he left in the middle of that third summer . . . when everything changed between them.
You never forget your first love, and a decade of fame and fortune as the face of professional snowboarding hasn’t dimmed Seth’s memory of seemingly endless, perfect summers. Now, sequestered with Caitlin on a high-profile case, could Seth have a chance to rekindle those feelings of the past? Amid family conflicts and hard-hitting revelations in and out of the courtroom, Seth and Caitlin face some tough hurdles. With so much at stake, can they trust in what they’ve reawakened in each other and turn this season of change into a lifetime of love?

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
To start with, I feel the need to mention that the cover of this book seems to suggest that the story is much steamier than it actually is. For the most part, this is a pretty clean read. While there is some sex scenes, they are few and far between and they skip the details that you would read in other stories.
The focal point of the story is actually the on the members of the jury and the complex relationship between Caitlin and Seth. It takes the reader back to the past when Caitlin was fifteen and Seth sixteen and the reader sees how their relationship developed over three summers. It then skips forward to the present and how they are trying to deal with these unresolved feelings as adults, mixed in with the complexity of serving on jury duty together. I liked this about the story.
For those who are not big fans of courtroom drama's, you need not fear. Everything is from the point of view of the jury members mainly when they are sequestered and the court case not does not play out within the pages (for the most part).
While I feel that the relationship between Caitlin and Seth was way more complex than it needed to be, I was still in their corner to see how their issues would be resolved.
This story was refreshingly different from a lot of other in the genre and I appreciated the change of pace. Overall a good read!
