It's summer again, and the girls are back in Maine taking the beach by storm. Greer, Jessica, and Lara each have a goal for the summer.

Greer hooks up with a boy on the first night at a party, but she knows that he's a player. She walks away from him, but he keeps popping up - and not just in her thoughts. Will she attempt something more with him?

Jessica wants to become closer to her boyfriend from last summer. They're talking about taking the next step. Only he's turning down her offers and spending time with another girl. Could it be trouble in paradise?

Lara spent last summer hooking up with her step-cousin. She hasn't talked with him in a month and is shocked to discover he's not in Maine this year. Lara supposes it's his way of telling her he wants to break up. She mopes around a bit before another guy catches her eye. Suddenly, halfway through the summer, Drew is back - and wants to pick up where they left off.

GIRLS IN LOVE picks up a year after SUMMER GIRLS as the three girls spend their summer flirting with boys and worshiping the sun. They're happy to be back together chatting about fashion, family, and boys. I adore Hailey Abbott, and her books are the perfect summer read, either on the beach or just to get you in the mood for summer. They're romantic, adorable, and full of close friendships.

I have actually read a few of Abbott's books and I am not sure why I don't make a point of following all of her books - especially since anytime I do end up reading one, I thoroughly enjoy it.

Granted, Girls in Love is NOT high literature - rather, it is the perfect beach read. I opened this book feeling a little blah and ended up finishing it with a big smile on my face.

YA is always fun to read - especially since YA always seem so incredibly melodramatic - which, of course, immediately brings me back to my own "drama" days and Girls in Love is no different.

This book is actually a sequel, but you don't have to worry as you can pretty well pick it up without having read the previous ones.

Jessica, one of my favorite characters is the one that I identified the most with - with a relationship with Connor and lots of doubts - courtesy of Lily. Lara who thinks she has been dumped and is doing the "in between" dance and of course Greer who appears to have it all figured out.

All of the characters bring their own brand of humor and personality to the storyline to make it a fun read. This book is breezy, funny, cute and entertaining. Perfect.

Taken from my blog:

New York Times bestselling author, Hailey Abbott, is the Queen of the teenage romance beach read.

Sequel to Summer Girls, Girls in Love follows three Tuttle cousins--the Summer Girls of Pebble Beach.

Jessica, the sweet one with the huge heart, is set on spending the entire summer with her semi-new boyfriend, Connor. She wants to move their relationship to the next level, but why is Lily Fitzgerald writing flirty comments all over his Facebook wall?

Lara, the newest cousin, is trying to forget about her ex-boyfriend, Drew. He hasn't called in over three weeks, so does that mean they are dunzo? Marco, a Summer Boy, looks more delectable to Lara each and every day.

And finally, there's Greer--the dramatic one. She can spot a player when she sees one, and Hunter fits the bill. So why can't she stop kissing him?

This book is such an enjoyable read and I loved each character to pieces. Both books in the series are fantastic, and this one does not disappoint. The drama, the boys, and the sand all make for one hot summer.

It's another summer in Pebble Beach, Maine for the extended Tuttle family and particularly cousins Jessica, Lara, and Greer. With this summer come new goals. Jessica wants to get closer to her boyfriend Connor, Lara wants to be more honest with the people she cares about, and Greer wants to find a trustworthy guy. But it wouldn't be summer at Pebble Beach if there wasn't some kind of romantic trouble. Jessica and Connor are in love, but Connor seems to be spending a lot of time with another girl. Lara thought she and Drew were over and starts dating someone else, but when Drew shows up again, Lara realizes that she doesn't want to give either boy up. And lastly, Greer is having trouble trusting Hunter even though he vows he's not playing games. Can the Tuttle cousins solve their drama in time for some summer fun?

Girls in Love has all of the romance, friendship spats, and overall drama of its prequel Summer Girls. However, while it's still in good fun, it's also starting to get old. I usually enjoy Abbott's summery books as quick beach reads, but Girls in Love just wasn't as good. Jessica, Lara, and Greer make such classic, clichéd, and stupid relationship mistakes, like dating multiple boys at once, not communicating, and being overly jealous and suspicious. It was just so obvious to me, as I'm sure it will be to other readers, that it was going to fall apart for each Tuttle girl. And then, once the main drama was all said and done, the round of forgiveness was too sickly sweet for my taste. The whole story of the Tuttle cousins having relationship woes, fighting amongst themselves, and them becoming BFFs again really isn't that interesting the second time around.

I only recommend Girls in Love to readers who really enjoyed its prequel Summer Girls or need a quick guilty pleasure for a lazy day by the pool.
