From the Author
A note from Stu: People ask me why I wrote "Summers' Love." To be honest, it came about from a time in my life when I was going through some old letters and things I kept from high school and college. There were prom pictures with girls I loved and ticket stubs from concerts with girls I loved and notes passed in halls from girls I loved but who, it turns out, did not love me.
That started me thinking about love (or at least puppy love) and how each of the girls I knew had dented my soul in some way - and how I may have, in some way, dented theirs.
So I begin writing lines and verses and before long I had a mess or words. I think it's clear from the reviews that some readers share this opinion of my writing.
I've always been a half-decent sailor but I have never been able to "read the waters" of a woman. Women remain a complete mystery to me. Perhaps that is why I enjoy spending time around them so much. I find women enchanting. It is not a stretch to say that most of the women I dated in high school and college took my breath away - and my heart.
Anyway, I am rambling, which is never a good thing when you're a writer.
If "Summers' Love" seems far-fetched, off-balance, or implausible, it is. Only an idiot would write a story like this.
Or live it and write about it.

Wonderful Book! When she got attacked in the beginning. I thought, “that escalated quickly. I thought this was a romance book?” Turned out it was a demonstration to sell stun guns! Loved that starting scene. The dialogue is realistic not stiff. You can tell the relationship between Kate and her brother is real and hilarious! The sibling quibble was true! Red was ANNOYING! She did not respect the hustle.
Stu is a fraud which I didn’t see coming. He needed real life experience to write about instead of getting a ghostwriter to write his best selling books. Enter Kate. Kate just trying to make some cash needs Stu to sign her books to include them with her stun guns to some fans of his books.
Enjoyed the two of them trying to play each other. Each have their own agenda but fall for each other in the end.
Really enjoyed the witty banter and comedy. Made me laugh. I recommend this book!
Stu is an anti-hero, a bit of a jerk, and terribly dishonest - accustomed to using people to get ahead. In the beginning of the story, this made him fairly unlikeable. As the story progresses, the reader discovers his checkered past and grows to like the man behind the mask. Kate, on the other hand, is a strong, independent woman who is writhe with bad choices and has such an unforgiving nature to the male sex that she's virtually unbelievable. But combined, their romance works, although it will be a roller coaster, for sure. The breakneck speed at which their romance goes from just met - to friends - to I love you - was a bit too hurried for my taste.
How does this happen? The author takes a fairly saturated genre and ironically pokes fun at it while still giving the reader what they expect from a romance novel. Kate (the leading lady) talks about things she despises about romance novels...hunky guys with no brains sweeping smart independent women off their feet to just jump into bed...and turns out their love story, is actually NOTHING like what you’d typically expect. It’s like her own personal happily ever after catered specifically to her.
The book is smart and fun and sort of sucks you in without you even realizing it. 5/5
