Every Summer After

Pub Date- 5/10/22
I love stories that go from the past to now. Going back and forth until you get to where the conflict happened. You get all the emotions slowly unraveling and you try to guess what it is and I usually guess the wrong thing or guess the right thing as it’s happening so that doesn’t count.
So I just finished and I totally guessed wrong and I have all the feels.
This had all the summer romance feels to it from age 13 to 30. A story of first love, heartaches, betrayals, absence, grief and second chances.
I just loved all 3 main characters it was mostly Sam and Percy (Persephone, P) but also Charlie.
I just have that warm new romance mixed with seasoned romance feel. There was a lot of pain not quite miscommunication but missed chances and not the right times.
But when you’ve met your soulmate at 13 how long will you wait for them?
This book is all over right now. Totally recommend! Def a summer read!

❓ Have you been swimming in a lake?
🌻 This is bay side from my trip and a great restaurant. I hope to go on a lake trip soon. This water is too cold to swim in.
Thank you berkleypub and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Six summers to fall in love. One moment to fall apart. A weekend to get it right.
They say you can never go home again, and for Persephone Fraser, ever since she made the biggest mistake of her life a decade ago, that has felt too true. Instead of glittering summers on the lakeshore of her childhood, she spends them in a stylish apartment in the city, going out with friends, and keeping everyone a safe distance from her heart.
Until she receives the call that sends her racing back to Barry’s Bay and into the orbit of Sam Florek—the man she never thought she’d have to live without.
For six summers, through hazy afternoons on the water and warm summer nights working in his family’s restaurant and curling up together with books—medical textbooks for him and work-in-progress horror short stories for her—Percy and Sam had been inseparable. Eventually that friendship turned into something breathtakingly more, before it fell spectacularly apart.
When Percy returns to the lake for Sam’s mother’s funeral, their connection is as undeniable as it had always been. But until Percy can confront the decisions she made and the years she’s spent punishing herself for them, they’ll never know whether their love might be bigger than the biggest mistakes of their past.
Told over the course of six years and one weekend, Every Summer After is a big, sweeping nostalgic look at love and the people and choices that mark us forever.
