Named One of the Hottest Reads of Summer 2022 by Today ∙ Parade ∙ PopSugar ∙ USA Today ∙ SheReads ∙ BuzzFeed ∙ BookBub ∙ Bustle and more!

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 story of love and the people and choices that mark us forever.

    By jaelyn1101
    Soooo I am sucker for romance. With that being said this hit the spot nail on by providing a little mix of PG/R-rated scenes with a mix of fun, and making me reminisce the summer days when I was younger. I would definitely recommend this book!
  • Meh

    By KarleNol
    Sophomoric. Good for 20 something’s. Won’t engage mature readers at all. I can’t fathom the high review marks other than their age was blatant.

  • Too good to be true.

    By jookbunkie
    My favorite style of writing. Witty, down-to-earth, emotional… Would actually love a sequel about Charlie. I found myself growing so curious about his character along the way. Glad to have been transported into this wonderful, word world for a few hours!
