Be ready for an emotional ride....,
This review is from: A Special Summer (Paperback)
This is a story about an emotional growth experience of two people that had to learn to really trust and to trust again. One fought it every step of the way and the other one had to relearn it. This author takes us the roller-coastered, battleground journey with Summer and Nick and by the book's end you have been on an extremely emotional ride. I LOVED THIS STORY....by the end that is. But during it I found myself disgusted, angry, frustrated and tense as these character developed and blossomed. That said, this book ended up taking me on a roller coaster emotionally and at points I did not have appreciate the characteristics of the these two people but it is real and does exist and thus I appreciated it immensely. Well done Mrs. Victoria Wells, well done.
Nick is the type of man that does not believe in commitment and fights to stay that way. Summer falls in love with him early on and as the story unfolds, she has extreme choices to make based on that love and what she knows of the man. You have to appreciate where her fears came from as well as his anger....YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIKE IT, BUT IT WAS REAL and for that this author gets kudos from me as she told it you were there in the middle of it, experiencing it. Both of these character grew in this book as they started being honest with their feelings and and fears. Because of that, this is a good book that gets you engaged while evoking a sundry of emotions in you that sometimes allows you to inflict your own emotions/fellings into the story. However, if you allow the story to unfold as told, by journey's end you will not throw it across the room again....as I did several times when I incorporated/projected my own feelings into the story. I read it last week and since that time have told others of this story and they have brought this book as well. Can't wait for her next one!!
