Note: This version of Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols has both The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols and the sequel: Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols. Since I have already reviewed The Boys Next Door, this review will only be about the sequel and if you have not yet read the first in the series, this review may contain spoilers.
Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols
Publication Date: May 25, 2010
Summary (from Jennifer Echol's blog post):
Lori should have known better than to date a pirate.
After finally getting together and going out on their first real date, only Lori and Adam could manage to fall asleep—and wake up seven hours past Lori’s curfew. Their parents forbid them to see each other. So Lori takes it upon herself to date boys scarier than Adam until her dad gives in.
But Adam won’t play along. He’s afraid Lori might fall for these scary boys. And when she goes out with the scariest boy of all—Adam’s own brother and her ex-crush—even the threat of being sent away to military school can’t keep Adam from swashbuckling his way back into Lori’s heart.
Can this forbidden love stay afloat, or will it sink in the watery deep?
I recently read and reviewed The Boys Next Door (you can see my review here) and I really enjoyed it. I loved all Jennifer Echol's characters and couldn't wait to continue on with Lori and Adam's story. Endless Summer starts off with Lori and Adam finally together but then they end up falling asleep in Adam's car until around six in the morning. They hurry up and get home, but Lori's dad is furious and forbids the two of them to date. Adam and Lori refuse to listen to their parents so they find ways to sneak away, but maybe their parents are right about them.
Adam is such a cute character, from the way he looks to the way he acts around Lori which is so lovingly. He makes some horrible decisions throughoiut the book but seems to redeem himself. Lori and Adam make one of the best couples and this book is sure to make your stomach flip.
Will I reread it?
Yes, I absolutely adored this sequel. And hopefully Jennifer Echols will continue on with Lori and Adam's story-I am crossing my fingers. Endless Summer is a great summer read!
