Book Description

Jenna Shaw ran away to escape her past. In fact, she jumped on a plane and flew to Portugal to try and forget it. However, it turns out leaving everything behind isn’t as easy as it sounds.

She thought she could move on and break free of her fears—that if she had some space the pain would stop. But as memories resurface due to an ill-timed joke, the past crashes into her present once more and she didn’t see it coming.
Jenna’s plans for normality are derailed by the charismatic Ethan Brooks. She sees him as an annoyance; he sees her as a challenge. But as he tries every trick known to him to impress her, they only serve to push her further away. He’s never faced this problem before and Ethan has to work harder than he ever has if he wants to win over and help his mysterious girl.

A young adult romance, this novella would be a great book for teenagers or as a feel-good summer read.

About the Author

Mia Hoddell lives in the UK with her family and two cats. She spends most of her time writing or reading, loves anything paranormal and has an overactive imagination that keeps her up until the early hours of the morning. With three poems published before the age of sixteen, Mia moved on to short stories but finding she had too much to tell with too little space, Mia progressed to novels. She started her first series (The Wanderer Trilogy) at the age of fourteen and since then hasn’t stopped writing. Elemental Killers is her second series and with an ever growing list of ideas, Mia is trying to keep up with the speed at which her imagination generates them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh,the baggage we carry. March 1, 2014
By pswinn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jenna's boyfriend Zac died horribly and she blames herself. On vacation with her friend Amy to try and get rid of the demons that make her feel guilty Jenna meets Ethan and the adventure and the trip back from her guilt begin. This was a good read and I believe young adults will enjoy reading about people their own age and see that we all have similar stories of putting past baggage behind us so we can move on and enjoy our lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Summer Read July 18, 2014
Format:Paperback
Jenna has just lost her boyfriend. She blames herself for his death. He jumped off a cliff that Jenna egged him on to jump from. Except he didn’t make it and Jenna was also there to find him in the water and she froze when she saw his broken body and now doesn’t do well with water. So her friend takes her away to help her try to move on. Jenna isn’t moving on well at all. She is in the pool and some guy trying to vie for her attention turns over her float in the pool. Jenna’s friend jumps in to help her as she panics in the water. The man feels bad and does everything he can to help her overcome and maybe see him as well.

Slowly he, Ethan, and her friend help her to overcome her past and move on in the world of the living.

This is a novella. It is also written in the third person, which I don’t normally like but it worked here. The characters are believable and the setting beautiful and the story flows well. I was pulling for Ethan all the way hoping he would help her, but first she has to help herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel Good Summer Read June 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
'Summer Demons' is a young adult summer romance novella about a teenager who is struggling to get over a traumatic incident she blames herself for; she certainly isn't looking for a summer fling. However, she catches the attention of a guy who is determined to make her give him a chance and the story develops from there. I will admit romance is not my favourite genre but having read Hoddell's paranormal series and thoroughly enjoying it I decided to give this a try and I wasn't disappointed. It was more than just a girl-meets-boy kind of story, there was a lot of depth to it. It also has a dark twist to it as the main character has some awful things to let go of but in the end this is a feel good story. Great summer read. Highly recommended to fans of romance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Find June 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No one really knows another person's story. Jenna has a history that causes her to be afraid of water because it not only forces her to remember the lose of a love one, but also guilt. Jenna is on a holiday with her friend Amy who will do anything to cheer her friend's low spirits after the tragedy of Jenna's boyfriend dying. Yet, fate has another thing in mind for her, that includes a knee melting grin.

This was the first Mia Hoddell book that I have read, and I'm sure there will be more in the future. Her writing is flowing in a manner that allows the readers to be planted in the scene, but not too wordy. The characters even for a short story are very well developed so that the readers are still feeling the sorrow of Jenna. As Jenna tries to find herself, it is a believable progress of emotions for someone who went through what Jenna went through. Readers will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic easy read May 15, 2014
By Mika
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Summer Demons was the first work I read by Mia Hoddell and it certainly won't be the last. It's a YA contemporary novella and exactly what I was looking for. I read it in one sitting last night and it kept me wanting more.

I can't wait to read her other work. There is a sneak peek of her Elemental Killers series at the end of Summer Demons which prompt me to get the book.

I highly recommend Summer Demons to anyone looking for a laid back and enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and heartfelt April 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This young adult to romance was endearingly sweet, bringing me back to those days of first loves and young heartbreak. Chapter by chapter, my heart cried and soared for Jenna as she first struggled with grief and finally began to move past it. A lovely and easy read for adults and teens alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Summer Demons by Mia Hoddell is a great summer read August 18, 2014
By I. Ray
Format:Kindle Edition
Summer Demons by Mia Hoddell is a great summer read. Summer of Demons is a YA romance that is quick and easy to read. I enjoyed reading it. Summer Demons is a standalone in the A Season of Change series. It was the first book by this author that I have read and I look forward to reading more books by this author. Summer Demons was engaging and full of characters that you can easy care about.

Jenna had a good life. She had the perfect boyfriend and good friends and everything was as it should be. All of that was going to end soon. Her life was about to crash out of control and all because of a stupid dare. She has been carrying around the guilt of her boyfriend’s death since it happened. She just knows if she hadn’t of dared him to jump off the cliff he wouldn’t have. When her friend convinces her that they should go to Portugal she agrees to go to get away from everything. Everything seems to be going fine until she starts seeing the water turn red and at that moment Ethan plays a trick on her that almost sends her over the edge. After that she tries to avoid him but he is everywhere and he makes it a point to pursue her. She finally relents and gives him a try. Will she regret her choice? Or will it be just what she needed?

Ethan was just one of those guys that like to pull pranks on people. He always had fun and most of the time people didn’t freak out. That wasn’t the case with Jenna. She freaked out and her friend gave him a lecture until she was blue in the face. He doesn’t understand why one simple prank would cause so much drama. What he does know is that Jenna is a mystery and that she is a mystery that he would like to figure out. His advances not working he relishes the challenge of getting past all her boundaries.

I love the cover. It's colorful and and slightly haunting, meaning it matches its title, a little. Of course there is nothing eerie or creepy about the story at all. Read more
