Review: Forever Summer (Summer #4) by CJ Duggan

You see there’s this boy.
He makes me smile, forces me to listen, serenades me out of tune and keeps me sane, all the while driving me insane. He's really talented like that. But for the first time in since, well, forever, things are about to change. The question is, how much am I willing to lose in order to potentially have it all?

Enter a world of sweltering Aussie summers, fabulously addictive characters and sweet intoxicating romance in C.J Duggan’s
Adam and Ellie’s Story

Kindle Edition, 204 pages

Published December 29th 2015

Terri's Thoughts

Finally the last of the series is released!  This is the fourth full length novel or seventh in the series of the Summer series.  I read the entire series last summer and have been anxiously waiting for this one to release to end the series.  Then again, maybe there will be more but there has now been a story about all the key characters so I think this is the end.

It seems fitting to close the series with Adam and Ellie's story.  They have been present throughout the entire series, often offering us comic relief.  It was inevitable that these two would come together.

At first it took me a while to get back in to the series and I was thinking that perhaps after all these books the story had no spark left.  This was mainly due to the flashback scenes via Ellie's diary.  As soon as Ellie and Adam were face to face my fears subsided and I was along for the ride.

What I liked about their chemistry is that it was not riddled with as much obvious angst as some of the others.  Due to their existing relationship, the connection was based on a history of understanding and hijinx.  Yes there is still some of the angst you expect from Duggan but you also see the deep rooted friendship that starts it all.

Whenever a series comes to an end it is hard to say goodbye to the characters.  I will miss Onslow, the Onslow boys and endless stream of romance that has occurred.  I can only hope Duggan has some more small towns with hot boys to write about so that I can partake in the future.
