Publisher's Summary

If suntans, saltwater, and a stubbornly cute guy can’t save Hadley’s summer, nothing will. 

Hadley Parrish is having the worst luck ever. Her boyfriend dumped her for social media fame, her stepsister got into Harvard the day Hadley failed chemistry, and now she’s been blamed for a crime she didn’t do. As punishment, she’s sent to Sterling Beach for the summer to learn some “work ethic” and “manners” from her grumpy grandfather who she barely knows. 

The beautiful beach is no match for Hadley’s epically bad mood, and she’s determined to spend every second of the summer locked in her room brooding. Her grandfather’s only rule is that she has to come out once a week, for Friday night poker. Hadley wants to protest, but then she meets her grandfather’s favorite poker player, Jeremy, the unbelievably cute guy who lives next door. Jeremy sees things differently after being granted a miraculous second chance at life. He’s not about to let Hadley’s bad mood ruin the best years of her life. In fact, he’s going to make it his mission to save her this summer. Even if it’s the hardest thing he’ll ever do. 

Saving Hadley is a Boys of Summer novella. If you like enemies-to-lovers, flirty banter, and pause-resisting sweet romance, this story is for you.

a cute story with a meaningful punch!

Such a cute novella with lots of meaning packed within the pages. I found myself devouring it in one sitting and smiling ear to ear when it ended.

I loved Hadley and felt so bad what she goes through. Im glad she found what she needed in the places she didnt expect.

If you are wanting a heartwarming story with a dash of romance, family love, and emotions then you are in the right spot. Grab you a warm beverage and curl up to this sweet YA novella and be left with a warmth in your heart and a smile on your face.

Short & Sweet

This was another amazing installment to The Boys of Summer series! Hadley is a decent person who happens to have horrible luck and sucks at chemistry. She recently found out that she has to do summer school, got dumped by her boyfriend live on social media, happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, and has a pretty crappy family due to the toxicity of her step mother’s influence. As her punishment, she’s sent to Sterling Beach to stay with her grandfather. His only rule is that she has to play weekly poker with him, his neighbor who is her age, and his possible love interest. Jeremy and Hadley’s romance was sweet even though they both had to learn to open up to one another to make things work. I love that this book deals with real life issues that teens go through such as family issues, humiliation, break ups, living up to others expectations, moving in, and toxic relationships. This book had a Cinderella vibe to it and it fit the story perfectly!
Brittany did a great job with this narration! She gave each character depth and brought Hadley’s emotions to life.

Sweet YA Love Story

While this is a short story, it is beautifully done. The overall story by Amy Sparling was wonderful, a story of a young girl who is shipped off to her grandfather's house for the summer by a father and step-mother who seem not to like her. She builds a sweet relationship with him as well as finding someone special. I loved the narration by Brittany Goodwin, who added a lot of life and feeling into her reading. A very enjoyable listen.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
