***I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ****
Danny and Aryn have become a recognized couple, and the growing pains of their relationship are touching reminders that not every match made in heaven is perfect every day. There will be days when you have ups, and there will be days when you have downs. Summer Shade does a wonderful job examining both sides of this coin.
Once again Jena makes quick work of establishing where everyone is, and bringing their individual settings to life. While the description mentions trips - plural - there is one that this installment focuses on almost exclusively. As such, there's a very little outside of the new setting that needs to be established, so the actual world building doesn't factor heavily into this story.
The character development continues, and from my perspective, does an honest job of deconstructing a teen's crush-to-love relationship shift. It also does a good job at highlighting the good, and not-so-good, parts of a long distance relationship. Despite the difficulties, Jena does a wonderful job keeping both "casts" alive. Too many times, I've seen authors have a story split like this, and either one set of characters becomes an after thought, or they become stagnant. That does not happen here, and the troubles help highlight the very humanness of the characters.
Once again, the story is a tightly woven, rich tapestry of emotions, personality, events, and places that is well paced and made the short read feel much longer. The only question it really left me asking when I emerged from the story was: "How does she manage to pack so much into such a short space?"
