Boardwalk Summer is a heartfelt romantic novel, a perfect way to start off your summer reading! ~ Autry, Guilty Pleasures
Single mother Hope Thompson has built a happy life for herself and her twins in beautiful Tranquility Bay, Washington. She doesn t dwell on her painful past especially not on the man who broke her heart all those years ago. But when Hope s beloved son needs help, she takes a desperate chance and reaches out to her children s father.
Nick Fortune lives life in the spotlight as a champion race car driver. He s shocked to hear from Hope and even more surprised to learn that he s a father. He immediately heads to the Pacific Northwest to confront the past and the woman he once loved.
There, on the quiet lakeshore, Nick and Hope must work together to save their son even if it means facing their complicated past for a second chance as a family.”
Hope and Nick are forced to overcome many obstacles to try and help their son; it’s a life and death matter. Hope is a very private and guarded person, with her sons’ trouble Hope has been forced to become even more precautions and guarded about her life. Nick has always lived life in the fast lane; from absentee parents to fast cars and faster women, Nick are thrown a huge curve to find out he’s a dad.
Boardwalk Summer is a very hope filled novel. Hope that overcome a parents worse nightmare, hope to reconnect with a past love, hope to move past parental betrayal. I did feel a connection between Hope and Nick, their love is still burning strong after 17 years. Their relationship was a slow burn rekindling as opposed to an intense all consuming love. The secondary cast adding a great best friend paired along with an bitter old school mother. I would have liked to see more resolution to the mother daughter relationship, however I didn’t feel cheated out of anything. Watching the road to recovery for their children and a relationship become strong again was a great novel. If you are looking for a second chance romance, grab Boardwalk Summer, it will not leave you disappointed!
