The Summer I Found You - Jolene Perry

My first thought was, "How did I end up reading two romantic books about guys with one arm right next to each other?" Because I didn't plan that.


My second thought was, "Dude. I really, really like this book. Like really."


My third thought was, "I'm really pissed off because Deena's husband made that comment about how he wished she wasn't pregnant because he didn't want people to think they were like those 'weird people who don't believe in sex before marriage.'" Because things like that REALLY PISS ME OFF.


I'm still fuming a bit over that, because it was so stupid and unnecessary and dumb and ARGGGSJKFTHSDRJKBHYSJRBH, but I still really like this book. I think Aidan and Kate moved way too fast, and the book focuses more on physical attraction than emotional, which isn't really my cup of tea, but still. It's still rough around the edges, but I still like it.


(Also, this book isn't even set in the summer. Can someone explain that to me..?)
