Simone needed a miracle.
She needed him. Simone St. James was a librarian from the tourist town of Bandon, Oregon. Two summers ago - before all hell broke loose - she met Sam. He was everything she ever wanted in a man: smart, funny, and jaw-droopingly gorgeous. But after eight perfect weeks together, he left without leaving a note. She hadn't heard from him. For nearly two freaking years there'd been nothing. Not a word. Until he sent her an email asking her to meet so he could explain. Seeing him might be a mistake. It probably was, but Simone had to one last time, even it was just to say goodbye.
I've read RaShelle Workman's teen books and audios but this is my first contemporary romance story that I've listened to. I will be honest and just throw it out there that I don't care for contemporary or historical romance stories but I really enjoyed Workman's story. I found myself engrossed in this story and its one of those I found myself engrossed in this story and its one those stories that you can connect to. This could've been a true story because in reality, finding happiness like Simone and Sam really happen in real life. I believe this is why I found myself glued to this story. It doesn't sound fake, nor feel fake. Stories like this, no matter how short, or even simple is what makes a talented author. This story just feels right, I felt happy at times, sad, and I laughed, and I even cried. This story has touched me and RaShelle, if you thought I was a fan before, I must say that this story has won me over, and now I can honestly say, I'm a HUGE fan now.
Narrator Stacy Hinkle did a wonderful with her telling of Summer Love. I was surprised at how good she was with distinguishing each characters voice and accents. It was easy to identify each character throughout this story. Stacy brought this story to life and I was glued to Summer Love from start to finish. Overall, I give it a perfect 5 star rating!

A good short story that reminds me of a good Hallmark movie. A couple meets and instantly are sexually attracted to each other. All seems wonderful until one day he just disappears out of her life. He never knew she had become pregnant and gave birth to his daughter. She goes on with her life and is a great mom. However, she finds out she is sick and may not have long to live. Suddenly she gets an email from him and he wants to see her again. At first she is very angry but soon realizes she still loves him and he deserves to know about his daughter. I don't want to spoil the rest of the story so I won't divulge any more but I totally enjoyed this story. I was giving this book in exchange for an honest review and I really appreciate it. The narrator is wonderful ! Enjoy this book for yourself !!
This book is full of emotions, every kind you can imagine. I loved it!
