*Blog Tour Review & Giveaway] Suddenly Last Summer (O'Neil Brothers #2) by Sarah Morgan

Suddenly Last Summer (O'Neil Brothers, #2)
suddenly (2)


Bestselling author Sarah Morgan delivers another irresistible hero in her O'Neil Brothers series who's more tempting than dessert and twice as sinful!

Fiery French chef Élise Philippe is having a seriously bad day. Not only have the opening day plans for her beloved café fallen apart, but Sean O'Neil is back in town, and looking more delectable than ever. Last summer, they shared an electrifying night together…and the memories have Élise really struggling to stick to her one-night-only rule! Her head knows that eventually Sean will be leaving, so all she can do is try to ignore her heart before she spontaneously combusts with lust.

Being back in Vermont—even temporarily—is surgeon Sean O'Neil's worst nightmare. For Sean, returning home to the Snow Crystal Resort means being forced to confront the reasons and the guilt he feels about rejecting his family's rural lifestyle years ago. But discovering that Élise has settled in Vermont and still sets his blood racing is a very welcome distraction! Thinking he can persuade her into a replay of last summer is tempting, but remembering how good they are together is going to make walking away more difficult than he could imagine…

Why did I wait so long to try one of Sarah Morgan's books? WHY?!?! I'm so angry with myself since this habit of not trying out some wonderful authors sooner is starting to become a pattern. Thankfully though, it's summer and I can't wait to try out her other Harlequin titles because hey, I have the time.

I just loved this book to bits. It had everything I look for in a contemporary romance. There was a hunky surgeon, a spunky leading lady and a perfect setting. Plus as you can guess by the title, it had a perfect summer romance with a lovely small town setting.

Elise was a lovely main character. I loved her passion for her work and how she strove to be so good at her job. She was really spunky, and I liked her fire. She knew what she wanted from her life and she definitely wasn't a push over and I thought it was refreshing to see a female main character with a one night rule for once it added a touch of uniqueness to Elise, and the romance between her and Shawn.

Shawn was great, I really liked that when push came to shove I'm glad he came home when he heard about his grandfather collapsing even though he knew he'd get a bit of an icy welcome. He wasn't that arrogant, hot head who left the town years before and had his fair share of guilt going on about how he left and it was nice to see a softer, less arrogant edge to a male lead. I mean he wasn't a pushover, and could definitely be the boss but at the same time he was easier going than I expected.

As for how he and Elise were together, I loved them. They were so perfect together and while they were opposites in a lot of ways they did have things in common and those were the important things. The chemistry between them was sizzling and I loved it. Their romance was everything a summer romance is supposed to be. It was hot, and full of passion and I loved the love they had.

They did have some issues to work out and they had their fair share of fights but ultimately I saw this a romance for two people thinking they didn't deserve love, or need it until they found each other. It was well paced and just lovely.

While this was the second book in the O'Neil Brothers series I had no problem reading it on its own. Sure I'm curious about characters who were obviously in the first one but they didn't stop me from enjoying this one at all and it made me curious about the first book which I'll be reading soon, and the third book which comes out later this year.

I'd recommend Suddenly Last Summer to all contemporary romance fans. This would be the perfect book to pack for vacation reading or for a nice read in your backyard, the pool or the beach. The story will make you laugh, and get a little misty eyed and will take you for a mental vacation to rural Vermont.
