It Happened One Summer: A Novel: 1 (Bellinger Sisters, 1)
About this deal
She has always spoken my love language, and with this Bellinger Sisters series, I feel like she's really hit the top of her game. Now while i am wholly obsessed and will rave about this book forever, I will say i found that ending to be a littttle bit lackluster. When she gets turned on, she doesn’t get wet: “feminine pleasure turned to slickness between her thighs. This isn’t even all my issues with the book, as I also found it incredibly weird that Piper and Hannah’s mother told them nothing about their father and his family.
As if that's not complicated enough, her mother has decided to hold a kind of competition between the siblings to see who should inherit Tredower once she meets her demise! But throughout it all, Piper discovers herself and her duality and her many complexities and that she’s allowed her presence on social media to rule her life. Helping her flirt with another guy is pure torture, but maybe if Fox can tackle his inner demons and show Hannah he’s all in, she'll choose him instead? When Piper and her sister Hannah arrive in Westport, they run into sea captain Brendan Taggart, who thinks they won’t last a week outside LA.It's at a later line where she learns her true self, and finds that finding love and having a bond relationship with her sister is much more then having so many followers on social media.
Now as a punishment Piper will spend three months at this town, taking over the bar she inherited from her father and live in a dilapidated apartment. When you read a book by Bailey, there are two things you can always count on: sexy, rapid-fire dialogue and scorching love scenes. I was hoping It Happened One Summer would be a great escape, but unfortunately, it didn’t work well for me. I liked how he was working on making her fall in love with him even when she kept promising him nothing serious.
Another thing is the sibling relationship between Piper and Hannah, it was definitely the highlight of the book. It started alright but in the second chapter another person came it did not tell you who it was and what connection she had with the main characters in the book until the end . If you loved the lighthearted nonsense of ‘The Love Hypothesis’ then this book is sure to give you a similar giggly. I read it in one long, luxurious sitting, reading each page twice, not wanting to miss a moment, and dreading The End.
We don’t get to see her change herself or her personality for someone, but instead we get to see her find her true self? She thinks she could get away with this scandal but her rich stepfather Daniel who is highly achieved Hollywood producer thinks otherwise. So he cuts her off, and sends Piper and her sister to learn some responsibility running their late father's dive bar.this book had my back arching, toes curling, neck cracking, bed sheet gripping, knee trembling, and ass smacking. This is the first Polly Williams book I have read and although I did enjoy it I found it abit slow possibly an ideal holiday/beach read. I hate books where the conflict is all based on the characters’ failure to communicate, and that’s exactly what this was. The story is very heartfelt and entertaining, I cried and laughed at how diverting this book has been.
Tessa Bailey tells the story of Piper, a wild child who loves the LA lifestyle of attending parties and celebrating life. Except now she’s walking around in a towel, sleeping right across the hall, and Fox is fantasizing about waking up next to her for the rest of his life and… and… man overboard! Being dumbed at a party in front of the crowds and public humiliation on social media trigger her to make a foolish mistake. The author of Hook, Line and Sinker delivers another irresistible maritime-inflected romcom as a Hollywood It Girl is forced to relocate to a Washington beach town - where she experiences sparks fly with a surly fisherman.Now she -an impulsive party girl- is stranded with a huge, bearded fisherman obsessed with routine and constant brooding, in a town full of people so unlike her usual crowd. She’s shallow and vapid, and nothing about her supposed maturing as the novel progresses or her coming to terms with her biological father’s death rings true or is developed enough.
