One spitfire graduate. One sexy, burned out billionaire. One small island.

Maya Summer thought it was supposed to be easy following the dream. Graduate, find a job, take over the world, and live happily ever after in a lovely Toronto penthouse. Not debt and unemployment.

Meanwhile, Connor MacKenzie is living the dream. He’s got the got the penthouse, the massive corporation, and wears the title of The King of Toronto as though he was born to it. But underneath it all, he’s struggling to keep his life together and make it still look easy.

When Connor’s doctor sends him deep into the Canadian Muskokas for much needed R&R, he ends up on Maya’s old cottage veranda. For Maya it’s a dream come true—two weeks to convince hottie Connor that she should be his new right-hand business gal while gaining some much needed income to save the family’s cottage. Only problem? Connor is on a strict no-work diet, and is dodging her flirtatious business advances like a Kung Fu Master.

Will Connor be able to resist a new project presented by Maya and stay on the path to personal recovery? Or will he—despite his best intentions—succumb to her charms both in and out of the boardroom?

This is the second beach reads book in the Summer Sisters contemporary romance series and includes summer love, a little bit of steam, and an alpha male who is seriously no match for the determination of the second born Summer sister.

***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***

I fell in love with the Summer sister’s when I read book 1 in the series and I fell even more in love with them after reading book 2! I recommend that you read book 1 before reading this one, but only because it is amazing, so why not?!?  You would be able to read book 2 without first reading book 1 but the characters are all a part of both books.

Author Jean Oram has created the most perfect summer read in this series! It is smooth flowing, fast paced, fun and exciting.  She has created a new group of friends for readers to love and spend time with!  The plot is quick, has a few twists and turns and is anything but predictable.

Nymph Island has been in the family for over a hundred years..but now they are coming down to the wire to save it or lose it to a tax sale. Maya is a recent graduate from college and is working on renting the cottage on Nymph Island and landing the perfect job at the same time.  Connor is on a mandated “vacation” and wants nothing to do with work, but Maya is spunky, persistent and unwilling to be the one who is responsible for losing the island.

There are sparks flying everywhere throughout the story – love, anger, and emotions run high – it is the perfect beach read, an afternoon read or a just because read! You won’t find a better series this summer, believe me I have read a lot and nothing comes close!  Make sure you add this and the other 3 books in this series to your TBR list – you won’t be sorry!!
