An Endless Summer (Summer #2)

Publication Date: July 17th, 2013
Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.
“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.” I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.” A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?” After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henderson – the Onslow publican’s only daughter – is sent away to suffer a fate far worse than any other punishment:Boarding School. Three years on, a now nineteen-year-old Amy returns to Onslow for the summer. What once was a cauldron of activity with live bands, hot meals and cold beers, the Onslow Hotel now lies dark, deserted and depressing. All fond childhood memories of loitering on the hotel stairs and eavesdropping on customers’ colourful conversations are in the distant past. How had her dad let it come to this? With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good. In an endless summer, Amy soon realises that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.

ReviewI am completely and utterly in love with this season. I loved the first book, Boys of Summer, and this one definitely did not disappoint. If anything, I thought this one was better!! Sean and Amy were great main characters.
Lets start off with the Onslow. I so wish this was a real place where I live. The town just sounds fantastic and the hotel sounds like a fantastic place to hand out. It sounds so outrageously beautiful and it only makes me wish more and more that it was real.
I found myself completely rooting for Amy throughout the whole book. She goes through some tough trials in this book and even though she may be pigheaded and stubborn, she manages to pull through each of them. I was also rooting for Amy and Sean's relationship and just wanting them to get their act together and get together already! They were completely perfect for each other.
Sean is just freaking fantastic. I wish every single girl had a guy like Sean. He's witty, good looking, sarcastic sometimes, but just utterly perfect. He's the sweetest guy and did absolutely anything that Amy needed, and she needed a heck of a lot!
I cannot wait for the last installment in this series. Duggan is a fantastic author and makes every reader feel like they are experiencing exactly what the characters are. It's wonderful!
