Sky changed her life for a man once, and she has no intention of doing it again – even if he is a six foot, tattooed rock god who makes a mean bacon sandwich.

Sky Davis is fed up of boyfriend Grant taking her for granted and when she comes home to find him wearing a girl, Sky suspects the relationship is over. She takes an unscheduled holiday and leaves the life (and guy) she hates behind.

Rock star Dylan Morgan is struggling with fame and infamy, sick of his life being controlled by other people. Dylan cuts his hair and walks away from his role as lead singer of Blue Phoenix, leaving chaos and speculation behind.

Outside the English seaside town of Broadbeach their cars and worlds collide.

Sky decides Dylan is an arrogant guy with too many tattoos, and Dylan is amused by the smart-mouthed girl with no idea who he is. Dylan and Sky soon discover they’ve travelled to Broadbeach for the same reason – to escape from reality back to a place with happy childhood memories.

Losing themselves in a world where they know nothing about each other, Sky and Dylan begin a holiday romance that soon heats up their rainy English summer.

Fantasies can’t last forever and when reality crashes the party, Sky isn’t sure she wants to be more than his ‘summer Sky’.

Returning to the real world and public scrutiny isn’t their only problem. Blue Phoenix lead guitar player, Jem Jones, has a reason for wanting Sky out of Dylan’s life, and is determined to come between them. Some things won’t stay hidden, even when they’re paid to ‘go away’.

Summer Sky is a romance where occasionally more than the bacon sizzles. This is the first in the new ‘Blue Phoenix’ series of contemporary rock star romances.

My Thoughts

This from the few I read over the month of march was my absolute favorite. It was cute and different and at the end very sad. I was sad to see the story drop and end where it did but I am happy to have found a second book. This novel was about two very different people from opposite ends of life’s spectrum meeting by chance. They got to know each other in a world separate from their own. They had a brief whirlwind of a romance before their worlds came crashing down on them. Their worlds tore them apart when the truth of who the guy really was tore them apart.

I was kind of sad that Sky let what she learned and what other people were telling her influence her relationship with Dylan, when she herself got to know him and understand him, I understand it was probably overwhelming but after all they went through I believe she was a little naive in the end. I also think Dylan should have fought harder in the end. He fought like hell in the beginning but he kind of just gave up in the end.

My Rating: 5/5

  1. It’s been a while since I’ve read any contemporary. This one sounds like a good realistic fiction read, I tend to admire people more like me, but opposite attraction is real. Glad you enjoyed it, I hate how there was a sad ending though. I’m going to pick this one up!
