An Endless Summer (Summer #2)
by C. J. Duggan 

Goodreads synopsis:
Sean looked out over the lake, squinting against the sunlight. He turned to me, his expression sobering as his eyes flicked over my face in a silent study.

“Come on Amy, I saved you once, I’ll save you again.” I met his stare unflinchingly. “I don’t need saving.” A wicked grin formed slowly. “Don’t you?”

After a rebellious summer night that almost claimed her life, Amy Henderson – the Onslow publican’s only daughter – is sent away to suffer a fate far worse than any other punishment:

Boarding School.

Three years on, a now nineteen-year-old Amy returns to Onslow for the summer. What once was a cauldron of activity with live bands, hot meals and cold beers, the Onslow Hotel now lies dark, deserted and depressing. All fond childhood memories of loitering on the hotel stairs and eavesdropping on customers’ colourful conversations are in the distant past.

How had her dad let it come to this?

With the new threat of putting the Onslow up for sale, Amy reluctantly turns to a local tradesman for help: Sean Murphy, the very same Onslow boy who saved her life all those years ago. With his help and that of some old friends, the task is clear: spend the summer building the hotel back up to its former glory or lose it for good.

In an endless summer, Amy soon realises that sometimes in order to save your future, you have to face your past, even if it’s in the form of a smug, gorgeous Onslow boy.

I've just finished the first book in this series, The Boys of Summer, and I really enjoyed it (don't worry, there are no spoilers in this synopsis for the first book -  they can easily stand alone). Set in sunny Australia, during the summer months, the first book is a really nice, light-hearted and sometimes steamy YA contemporary romance, and it was exactly what I needed to read when I picked it up.
I've enjoyed it so much that I'm already looking forward to getting my hands on this sequel!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I'm not really a romance fan, but this sounds like a nice summer read. I'll see if I can find this as an ebook to take along on holiday. Thanks for sharing.
