Publisher's Summary

My name is Ian Memmer, and I've been keeping something from my best friend Summer Quinn for years. I'm in love with her. She breaks my heart over and over, day after day, but I love her. We grew up next door to one another. She's kind and beautifully broken, and she has no idea how I feel. 

Because of her depression, and since she never showed any signs she felt the same, I've kept silent. Tormented. Wanting her. Becoming the playboy everyone views. I'm her rock. She needs me. I fear she's keeping secrets from me, too. Then a passionate moment between us changes everything and gives me hope. 

Yet the guy she's been dating wants to take their relationship to the next level. If I don't make a move soon, I could lose her. But telling her the truth could rip us apart forever.

Summer’s Road

This book leads from childhood friendships and pain to adults learning their way through life and finding their own strength to find happiness. I really enjoyed this book and the narration matches the writing really well. Very good southern accents.

A Lot of Drama

This story is full of drama. I'm not saying that's a bad thing and for the most part I enjoyed listening to it. However, towards the end I found myself rolling my eyes and getting annoyed with Summer. Where my experiences with family wasn't quite like hers, it was enough for me to force myself to finish the book. I just had a hard time with Summer's decisions and indecision, I'm not as forgiving as she is, especially as an adult. Anyway, drama aside, this is a well written story with nicely developed characters. The narration was excellently done by Julie Walters and Gene Branson. They brought the story to life and really helped me to finish listening to the end. Not all duel narrations work well but these two really do. Nicely done! You'll definitely need to enjoy dramas to enjoy this one.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

outstanding story line

I received a free code to listen to this book and I did so willingly.

Summer's Road was a truly wonderful story. I could relate to so many things that happened in her life. Ian is the gentlest of souls and they made a lifelong fan out of me.

very well narrated by Julie Walters and Gene Branson

Friends to lovers trope that is heart wrenching

Summer's Road is about the path Summer takes in her love life. Ian has been her friend, her rock and her secret admirer. Ian quietly loves Summer and is always there to pick up the pieces during her falls and there to celebrate her triumphs. Summer has paced him in the friend category and never sees Ian as more than that. But when the fine line is crossed, Summer begins to question her feelings for Ian. Although this story is about Summer, Ian is telling his story. My heart broke for Ian. We can all relate to having that friend that you do not want to lose, but we love so dearly. I found myself routing for Ian to tell Summer the truth. This story tugged at all of my heart strings. The love was so real. I wanted to shake Summer and make her realize what she had. I love when a writer can make me get lost in the book and Kelly Moran does just that.

Julie Waters and Gene Branson narrate this story. They make a great team. Ian is an intricate character. Mr. Branson really brings him to life. Through Mr. Branson's narration, I could feel everything that Ian was feeling or struggling with. Ms. Waters brought out the best and the worst of Summer. This was my first listen to these narrators and I look forward to hearing more from them.
