Summer, boys, and friendships gone sour. This new series has everything that perfect beach reads are made of!

Gemma just got dumped and is devastated. She finds herself back in the Hamptons for the summer—which puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friend that she wronged five years earlier. Do people hold grudges that long?

When a small case of mistaken identity causes everyone, including Hallie and her dreamy brother Josh, to think she’s someone else, Gemma decides to go along with it.

Gemma’s plan is working (she’s finding it hard to resist Josh), but she’s finding herself in embarrassing situations (how could a bathing suit fall apart like that!?). Is it coincidence or is someone trying to expose her true identity? And how will Josh react if he finds out who she is?

I actually just received an ARC of this, but I won’t have time to read it until I read a couple of other ARCs first. I like all the seasons in real life, but when it comes to reading you can’t beat a summer, beach novel. I’m really curious to find out how Hallie and Josh mistake Gemma, someone it seems like they would have known pretty well, for another person.




  1. This one sounds so good. I can’t wait to read it either. Great pick.
