This book is Full of Summer Romances! me and my friend were at a book store and we decide to read the same book. She got to pick the book and pick this one, at first when i read the back i was like gosh this going to be like every other summer book, but then when i started to read it i found it really interesting. I liked this book so much that i read it in less than a week. if you don't like books with romances don't read this book.It talks about a lot of things teens go through and i can relate to some of these things. Over all this is an awesome book and if you have read it and love it, or you like books with a sequel let me tell you that there is a 2nd on called tan lines and the three is going to be out very soon!

I really enjoyed this book. It had some unexpected plot twists and the characters had enough depth to make the story interesting. I usually don't like books that are written with different characters viewpoints, but this one was excellently written. A great read!

Summer Smith doesn't have the perfect life, or a life that anyone would want at all. She is a major klutz, always falling and bruising herself. And the guy of her dreams, Sean Valletti, not only doesn't notice her but has found someone else to be his potential girlfriend.

After trudging home through the snow and cold weather, Summer gets hit with some excellent news. Her aunt had phoned her mother to see if Summer wanted to come to Florida and visit. From the cold, hard weather to the bright, warm sun, the answer is definitely obvious to Summer and she is whisked off on a plane on her way to Crab Claw Key.

Even before she arrives, Summer receives some interesting news from a lady on the plane. The lady, who turns out to be a fortune teller, tells Summer that during her adventure in Crab Claw Key, three men will enter her life. Sure, it sounded pretty lame to Summer, since she couldn't even get Sean to notice her back home. But before she knows it, her life turns into The Bachelorette, with three guys, Adam, Diver, and Seth, all showing interest in her. One may not be trustworthy, Summer can't even begin to figure out another, and the last one is totally taken.

Summer knows that this summer will definitely be interesting!

Aside from the boy problems and the horrible living space she must occupy, Summer gets to experience the drama with her cousin, Diana, who she hopes to win over and Marquez, who of course has some troubles of her own.

Three novels in one book, going through June, July, and August, will take not only Summer but also the reader on a journey full of heartache, mistakes, and endings that will surprise us all. BEACH BLONDES literally has "beach read" written all over it. The perfect book for some fun in the sun.
