Sweet Kiss of Summer by Sophie Gunn {Review}

Sweet Kiss of Summer
by Sophie Gunn

Mass Market Paperback, 320 pages
Published August 1st 2011

by Grand Central Publishing

Nina Stokes's life is far from picture perfect. For years the small-town artist has waited for the day she'd be able to fulfill her late brother's wishes and hand over his rambling house to its new owner. Yet when a sexy stranger arrives on her doorstep, key in hand, Nina realizes she's not ready to let go of the house and all its memories-not until she gets some answers to what really happened to her brother.
Mick Rivers may be a hard-as-nails soldier, but throwing a woman out of her house isn't his style. Neither is dredging up memories of the past-a past he is struggling to remember. He desperately needs to sell the house, but he finds the brown-eyed beauty with the open heart and warm smile impossible to resist. So instead of moving on, Mick moves in. As sweet summer days lead to sizzling summer nights, Mick must finally face his fears. But can he tell Nina the secrets haunting his heart, without breaking hers?

First Line: Dearest Nina,

You don't recognize this handwritting because a beautiful army nurse named Sally is writting this letter for me.

My Review: Sweet Kiss of Summer, a contemporary romance novel was a fast and decent read. Nina and Mick were fun believable characters, and their romance was sweet. I also really liked how Sophie Gunn continues to weave smaller stories in about the other supporting characters in hopes that we as readers get to re-visit the Frenemies in a future book.

Although I preferred How Sweet It Is to Sweet Kiss of Summer I feel Sophie Gunn has made a strong foundation with her characters in this series and I will be picking up any future books she puts out.
If your looking for a quick, witty and fun new series this is a great one to pick up!

My Rating:Photobucket

Until next time...Happy Reading!

Thanks for the review! I haven't tried anything by Sophie Gunn yet. Is this part of a series?
