Publisher's Summary

When Ben invites his best friend, Jesse, for a weeklong getaway to his family’s beachside vacation home, Jesse is thrilled! It’ll be the perfect way to spend some quality bro time together, away from jobs, chores, and Ben’s nagging mother, who is always asking him when he’s going to find a nice girl and settle down. He’ll settle down later - when he finds the perfect girl. 

The boys settle in for a fun week, but things start to get weird when Jesse finds an old mirror that begins to change him in small ways. Longer hair. Softer skin. More curves. The more he changes, the more he starts to look like a girl...like Ben’s perfect girl. And the more he looks like Ben’s perfect girl, the harder it is for Ben to resist his confusing, newfound attraction to his friend.

Can Jesse figure out a way to reverse the spell and resist Ben’s advances before he’s changed all the way into a woman? Or will he give in to his own increasingly confusing feelings about Ben? Being stuck as Ben’s perfect dream girl for the rest of his life would be awful...wouldn’t it?

Title tells the story

As the title says, this is a slow change gender swap romance. That said, I quite enjoyed it. It's a well written story, and the slower pace gives you a chance to really get into the characters and the story line.

It's a romance, with the slower pace giving the protagonist the time to express the uncertainties and angst that accompanies the changes taking place, gradually, to his body.

The narrator did a fine job giving voice to the male and female characters. Well done all around.

I received a free audible credit from the author, in exchange for an honest review.of one of her titles. I'm glad I chose this one. If you try it, I think you'll enjoy it.

A slow paced but well structured story

While I normally prefer a more fast paced story "Summer Loving" was a relaxing listen untill the very last little bit when the pace picked up.

I’ll never find another story this good!

This is the third audiobook and fifth book by Alyson Belle that I’ve read and they are all incredible. But Summer Loving is far and beyond the best one yet! The writing was eloquent and captivating and the performance was outstanding. I wish there were hundreds more just like it!

More a very slow romance than steamy

So if you're reading Alyson Belle's work, you're probably not into it for the romance... Which is why I'm not rating this one as high as, for instance, her Swapped by the Witch Queen omnibus. For this is mostly a very slow and even a little boring buildup to what in the final chapters leads to somewhat of a romance. It all has a YA feel about it (hence the boring I guess), except for the one steamy scene at the very end - which makes it adults only after all.

The main character, a young man, was written very effeminately from the start, which I wasn't into. I get there is some gender swapping to be done, but it's hardly a gender swap fantasy if he's acting and reacting femininely all the time anyway. It would have been cooler if he'd started out very masculine and then surprising himself by enjoying the unexpected swap. In her other novels Belle is doing a much better job there. Like the protagonist in Fantasy Swap Online, that was awesomely done!

So imho it's a nice jumping on point to Belle's complete body of work, if you'd like a slow and careful start that is. If you're looking for some restlessness, better skip this one and move on to her other books. Like Fantasy Swap Online, her Space Swapped novels or the aforementioned Witch Queen series.

Narration is fine, with some nice voice acting here and there, including the steamy scene.

a well paced decent romance.

the pacing is awesome and the characters reaction to the situation is believable enough, i found the trigger for the change is a bit ill explained and it could use an epilogue but for the length it is a good tail.

i got a free credit to review one of the authors books and this is defiantly a good use of a credit.
