One Perfect Summer by UK-resident author Paige Toon, perhaps best known for her chick-lit, is her standalone f/m contemporary romance, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Simon & Schuster UK.
The story is a second chance reunion romance set in England, starring two young people who meet and hit it off during a pre-university summer, but abruptly break things off and many years later find each other again, so distant and changed that starting over again from that perfect summer seems impossible… or is it?
Offered in the UK only, available at multiple retailers.
Free for a limited time @ Amazon Kobo, Google Play, iTunes (this appeared to only be free in the UK only, but not anywhere else that I spot-checked, though YMMV for your own locale at assorted stores)
DISCOVER THE PERFECT SUMMER READ FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE LAST PIECE OF MY HEART.
A Dorset summer, a chance meeting, and Joe and Alice, both 18, fall into step as if they have known each other forever. But their idyll is shattered as quickly as it began. Joe leaves without warning; Alice heads off to Cambridge University and slowly picks up the pieces of her broken heart.
Years later, when she catches the attention of gorgeous, gifted, rich boy Lukas, Alice is carried along by his charm and swept up in his ambitious plans for a future together.
Until news of Joe reaches her once more, but he’s out of reach in a way that Alice could never have imagined. Life has moved on, the divide between them is now so great. Surely it is far too late to relive those perfect summer days of long ago?
