Jenn McKinlay is back with another lighthearted and charming novel in SUMMER READING! Samantha Gale and her half-brother Tyler are in for an interesting summer at Martha’s Vineyard. Because Samantha isn’t a brainiac like Tyler, the idea of libraries and books doesn’t interest her. Until she meets a sexy bookworm that makes her change her mind about readers.

Interestingly, Bennett Reynolds is on the hunt to discover more about his father who he never met. For him, the island is a research spot where he hopes to find out more about who his mother spent her summer with.

SUMMER READING turned out to be sweeter than I expected it to be. The romance between Samantha and Bennett was fun and lighthearted, making me smile on more than one occasion. McKinlay infuses this book with her signature humor and charm, and it’s a wonderful read to take with you to the beach to enjoy. As I am a fan of summer-themed books, this one was right up my alley. On top of that, who can resist a hot bookworm? I know I can’t.

An enjoyable and fun read, SUMMER READING is definitely a book you want to put on your TBR this summer!

When a woman who’d rather do anything than read meets a swoon-worthy bookworm, sparks fly, making for one hot-summer fling in New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay's new rom-com.

For Samantha Gale, a summer on Martha’s Vineyard at her family’s tiny cottage was supposed to be about resurrecting her career as a chef, until she’s tasked with chaperoning her half-brother, Tyler. The teenage brainiac is spending his summer at the local library in a robotics competition, and there’s no place Sam, who has dyslexia, likes less than the library. And because the universe hates her, the library’s interim director turns out to be the hot-reader guy whose book she accidentally destroyed on the ferry ride to the island.

Bennett Reynolds is on a quest to find his father, whose identity he’s never known. He’s taken the temporary job on the island to research the summer his mother spent there when she got pregnant with him. Ben tells himself he isn't interested in a relationship right now. Yet as soon as Sam knocks his book into the ocean, he can’t stop thinking about her.

An irresistible attraction blossoms when Ben inspires Sam to create the cookbook she’s always dreamed about and she jumps all in on helping him find his father, and soon they realize their summer fling may heat up into a happily ever after.
