R E V I E W ➠ The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis
Brynn Turner desperately wishes she had it together, but her personal life is like a ping-pong match that’s left her scared and hurt after so many attempts to get it right. In search of a place to lick her wounds and get a fresh start, she heads back home to Wildstone.
And then there’s Kinsey Davis, who after battling serious health issues her entire twenty-nine years of life, is tired of hoping for . . . well, anything. She’s fierce, tough, and pretty much the opposite of Brynn except for one thing: they’re half-sisters. Kinsey is keeping this bombshell, and a few others as well. Long time frenemies from summer camp, there’s no way she’s going to tell Brynn they’re related.
But then Brynn runs into Kinsey’s lifelong best friend, Eli, renewing a childhood crush. He’s still easy-going and funny and sexy as hell. When he gets her to agree to a summer-time deal to trust him to do right by her, no matter what, she never dreams it’ll result in finding a piece of herself she didn’t even know was missing. She could have a sister, love, and a future―if she can only learn to let go of the past.
As the long days of summer wind down, the three of them must discover if forgiveness is enough to grasp the unconditional love that’s right in front of them.

Not my first read by the author and I was so happy when I got the chance to review this. I adore Jill’s books, it’s more woman’s fiction at times but the way she writes is with contemporary romance intertwined, works really well. Her characters are always realistic, and this also featured another 2 romances into one book so you are getting a lot.
This really was a sweet and refreshing read. The sisters here are what true sisters are to be, what they go through might be separate but intertwined. This brings out two childhood enemies, twist, turns and one big bang if you will. This really has to be lived through, the secret…I was not ready for that.
