Book Description

Twenty-six-year-old Tanya Reese Morgan should have moved to Florida with her parents and left Mick Leighton and the memories behind. That would have been the smart thing to do—and she is a smart woman. Smart enough to take charge of their Seaside family business and turn the dated bar and grill into a trendy pub. But that was the driven, hard-working, professional Tanya. The brokenhearted Tanya, full of secrets and stubborn pride, didn’t know what was good for her. If she did, she would have severed all ties with Mick, kissed her beloved Jersey Shore good-bye, and started a new life a thousand miles from the past. If she were that smart, she would have heeded her father’s warning long ago and steered clear of Mick Leighton in the first place. But how do you part ways with the man you still love even though he’s crushed all your dreams? At seventeen, it was easy for Tanya to believe that Mick was just waiting for her to grow up. It was even easier for her to defy her parents and spend a blissful summer in his arms. The hard part was discovering that her father had been right all along. As summers come and go, each one a bittersweet reminder of the love they once shared, Tanya Morgan and Mick Leighton—the man she can’t forgive—go on to lead separate lives in their small coastal community. Mick only wishes he knew why…

5.0 out of 5 stars Love is Alive at the Jersey Shore February 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I LOVED this book so much! For anyone who has ever been to the Jersey shore it is a must and for anyone who just loves a good romance it is a definite must. G.G. Lourie has a sensitivity that comes through clearly in the main players (Tanya and Mick) and the secondary players (Mick's friends, Tanya's friends and parents) adds such depth to the story. I will read this book over and over again as I do with all books that I love! Can hardly wait to read the next book by G.G. Lourie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for Summer October 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just read this wonderful story of life long love that had its ups and downs. G.G. Lourie wrote this story that entrapped me to the end. Mick and Tanya grew up on the New Jersey boardwalk. He was six years older than her. Their love was not without the bumps of life. The way the story was told drew me into the pages. I felt like I was the fly on the wall with them. I don't give many 5 star ratings but this deserves it. Can't wait for more from G.G. Lourie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Summer Romance! February 19, 2014
By Shawn
You won't be able to put the book down! Waiting for Summer had me captivated in the first chapter. G.G. Lourie has a way with words where the characters come to life and you become part of their story. The Jersey shore is close to my heart and is perfectly represented in this book. It was as if I was watching the troubled relationships, turmoil, unforgotten love and desired lust all come together from my own beach chair.

This book sets a new bar for classic romance novels...Eagerly 'waiting' for her next novel!

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked the second half more than the first January 11, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's just a personal thing of mine that I'm really tired of reading about women who fight their feelings for the perfect guy until the end of the book. Because of that, it took me a really long time to get into this book, and I almost put it down. It was the setting and the characters that helped me stick with it until Tanya "got over herself." I also wish the book had been divided into more chapters, because the scene would change almost in the middle of a least the way it was formatted on my kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could NOT put this book down!!! November 22, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved it! This is a phenomenal romance novel and one that you won't be able to put down. A MUST read for sure!
G.G.Lourie has such a beautiful way with words that draws the reader in immediately within the first chapter. The characters are so real and you fall in love with all of them. To be honest, I didn't want this book to end, that's how good it was. And... I will most definitely read it again. Looking forward to more romance novels from this wonderful author G.G. Lourie.

Didn't think I'd love this book so much actually thought it would be just something to pass the time while I waited to find a better read, turned out I was wrong! I absolutely loved it and finished it in one day. The characters were all so likeable and so real. I will be looking for more by GG Lourie

4.0 out of 5 stars four stars December 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book features a likable couple with a great back story. Their age difference and her fathers opposition kept them apart. Figuring out how to get past that pain is their challenge. Some bedroom scenes that skim over any detail.
