Summary: Two irresistible boys. One unforgettable summer.  Lori can’t wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends—including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she's always been just one of the guys. Now that she’s turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that’s not going to happen—not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori’s romantic summer melt into one hot mess?

Review: Endless Summer contains 2 books: The boys next door and Endless summer. This book was intended for a much younger audience than expected and it took me awhile to realise that. I hated this book so much at first because the characters were really silly and did things without thinking it through. Then i realized that they were young teens that didn't know better. (I mean who goes around kissing any male in sight???) The book ended really well and left fuzzy feelings. I really wanted to like this book because of the gorgeous cover!

Endless Summer was a cute read but Lori really annoyed me with her stupidity and Adam's insecurities were a little too extreme. It was just hard for me to empathize and connect with the characters. They were illogical and impractical, I blame all these on me being a Virgo. But i just kept reading because I really enjoyed the first book (it was so funny!), The Boys Next Door and also because it was a really easy and light read. Endless Summer to me didn't match up to the first book but as i mentioned, the ending was really really sweet and cute!

To summarize this book: cheesy, cute, stupid, funny, sweet

My rating:

Recommended for young teens and anyone who can put up with teens doing stupid things or anyone looking for a light read with cute boys in it.
