The Summer of Jake
Racheal Bailey




New Adult, Romance




A new adult title from Entangled's Embrace imprint… Falling in love wasn't part of the plan…

Life is just dandy for aspiring fashion designer Annalise Farley. She has a great job (or she will once her designs are discovered), parents who only slightly disapprove, a cat that thinks she's a dog, and a best friend…even if she hasn't seen her in a while. But then Jake Maxwell saunters back into her life. Jake, the love god. Jake, her best friend's older brother. Jake, who broke her heart at sixteen without realizing it, then left to become a pro surfer. Now he's back, having taken the surfing and business worlds by storm, and he's ready for a new challenge—catching the eye of another girl. And he wants Annalise's help. Helping Jake land his next girlfriend is too fraught with emotional danger for her liking, but then Jake offers to put her designs in his shops. Is that the sound of her life cracking at the seams? It's hard to tell with Jake smiling at her like she's the only thing that makes him happy…




I have to start by saying this was the first time I have read anything by this author and I was not disappointed. The writing is so well done and the characters jump off the page. I wasn't sure what to think when I picked up this book but I am very glad I did. The main lead male Jake is so funny and flirty you can't help but like him with his cocky ways. Annalise seems to be the complete opposite of him. Annalise is so in love with Jake but he isn't ready to love or be loved and has a lot of growing up to do. This book is full of romance, heartache, it has a serious side as well. So it seems to have everything well done to the author on a fantastic read
