    One thought on “An Endless Summer”

    1. HOLY BATMAN. Do I need to review this book? Will a just franking read it suffice? Oh my beating heart be still, I think I'm in lust. And I do not mind at all.Read this book folks. It's the bomb.There's not a lot I can say about An Endless Summer, except for how amazing it is. In which case this review may be rather short, because there's only so many words in the thesaurus that I can use to express my uttermost love for not just this book, but CJ herself, and the whole series to come.It's hard w [...]

    2. Amy was fifteen in the first book and now she has returned to the Onslow at nineteen for the summer. She thought she would hang out like old times but her dad left the place to someone who has let it go downhill. It has many memories so she decides to work on fixing it up with the help of the Onslow boys. It is a special place for the town so everyone attempts to bring it back to it's glory days to prevent her dad from selling it.I loved Sean Murphy in the first book! I think everyone loves Sean [...]

    3. An Endless Summer was a book I was immensely looking forward to after I literally devoured Boys of Summer at the end of last year. Duggan just had that knack to capture the essence of what summers should be about; having fun, blossoming friendships, a sweet lasting romance and making it a summer you will never forget. And once again Duggan has been able to do that with An Endless Summer.With An Endless Summer we are given the story of Sean and Amy. I adored Sean in The Boys of Summer; he had tha [...]

    4. 3.5 RatingWhat I liked:1. Sean over coming his fear for Amy2. The Onslow Boys are back3. The whole Onslow gang of friends are backding in Tammy4. Humor/banter with the characters5. There were quite a few fun scenes with a bunch of the characters I liked.6. What Sean does in the end.7. The ending & Epilogue8. The Rubiks Cube (last scene with it)9. The gang pitching in to save the Onslow Hotel10. Amy learning new things about herself & Sean for helping her.11. The Dictionary scene. What I [...]

    5. Getting drunk and diving into the water in your knickers was never really going to be a good idea especially when your main motive was to catch the eye of one of the Onslow boys (for your friend of course). So when Onslow boy Sean Murphy rescues Amy Henderson from drowning in her knickers Amy's parents pack her off to boarding school as punishment for her reckless behaviour. Amy hasn't been back to Onslow since that embarrassing night three years ago but finds on her return that things at th [...]

    6. This is a combined review (sort of.) of both the previous book and this one. So, be smart and avoid reading anything you don't want to read.I'll award this series some serious credit for being able to capture the right essence and beauty of summer. It was bright, light and sunnyd it was kind of fun. SoYAY!I've had crushes on older guys. I remember giggling 'mentally' (Yes, I was too cool.) after sneaking glances to see THAT hot senior guy or group of senior guys in my school. I'd walk by their c [...]

    7. This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea's Bookshelf.It is so good to be back in Onslow! I really liked the first book in the Summer series, The Boys of Summer, and I honestly don't know why it took me so long to finally read the second book, An Endless Summer. Just like with the first book, I loved this one, maybe even more.An Endless Summer is Amy and Sean's story and it begins 3 years after when Amy gets back into town. What she doesn't expect is to find Onslow Hotel almost in ruins. She [...]

    8. Oh my C.J. Duggan you did it again. The simplicity in the setting of your contemporary novels (this one and The Boys of Summer) is what makes this series so appealing. I loved (actually loved is an understatement) The Boy of Summer when I read it last year. I raved and raved and raved about it to anyone who would listen to me and made all my friends read it (and they ended up loving it too!). So I was impatiently waiting for the release of An Endless Summer and I was over the moon when the autho [...]

    9. Another winner in the Summer Series by CJ Duggan. the onslow boys are back and in full heartthrobbing force. It's four years later and everyone has gone on to other things. Chris is in the city, Adam is in the army, Tess and Toby are still together (yay!), Sean has become a successful tradesman but the Onslow Hotel has taken a turn for the worse. So when Amy arrives thinking she will just be getting away from her lovey dovey parents she has a surprise. I must say I loved Sean and his flirty fun [...]

    10. I love the fictional town of Onslow and what it represents. The Summer series is beautifully brilliant and realistic. Set in a small town where they all know one another, the setting is realistic and anyone who has lived in a small town in Australia, knows that it can either be a blessing, or a curse. In Onslow, they share a sense of community, and genuine warmth towards one another. C. J. Duggan is a romantic storyteller. She has not only created likeable characters, but an entire town to fall [...]

    11. After loving The Boys of Summer, I was excited to dive back into CJ Duggan's world of great friends and summers by the lake. An Endless Summer did not disappoint and honestly, I couldn't put it down while I was reading. I really do love this series. Once upon a time, Sean Murphy saved Amy Henderson from drowning. Then --Amy Henderson has been away for about four years now, after her parents felt she needed to calm down a bit and sent her to the city for school. She's excited for summer - she's e [...]

    12. Favorite Quote(s):“And just like Sean, without even knowing the reasons why, he just did. Without a word or a worry, he saved me.”Favorite Character: Amy.First Line:“‘There he is!’”My Musings: Way back when, I was a part of the blog tour for the Boys of Summer by C.J Duggan, so I couldn’t pass it up when I got the email for the blog tour sign ups for this second, companion novel. I couldn’t wait to see what else C.J Duggan had in store. An Endless Summer follows the life of Amy t [...]

    13. Actual rating- 3.5*NOTE: We (The Readdicts) received a copy of An Endless Summer by author C.J. Duggan in exchange for an honest review. We thank C.J for the book! Although I had many problems with the MC in the first book of the Summer series, The Boys of Summer, I really enjoyed the story as it was fun and flirty- an almost perfect summer read. You can find my review of it here. When I started the second book, An Endless Summer, I had a feeling I won't quite enjoy it as much as the first one a [...]

    14. A review copy was provided for an honest review. If you were as blown away with the first novel as I was then you have to pick up An Endless Summer! An Endless Summer is irrefutably fun, sexy, summery and has exceptionally written characters. Smiling, laughing, and sighing—these are all things you'll be doing while reading. After Tess McGee I didn't think any other character would be as funny or as entertaining but I was SO wrong. Amy is hilarious, snarky, and indomitable. She meets every chal [...]

    15. I felt like clutching my Kindle to my chest and twirling around in pure joy after I finished An Endless Summer. That sounds so unlike me, but that goes to show just how much I loved it. I just wanted to bask in the sweet, glorious book high for as long as possible. I absolutely loved The Boys of Summer, but this was even better! An Endless Summer takes place four years after The Boys of Summer left off, but this time it's Amy and Sean's story. I loved Toby and Tess, but Sean is so much more my k [...]

    16. Though this is book 2 in a series, it reads much more like an independent book than a series or companion novel. Along the lines of Sarah Dessen, it’s more a story where the same characters from other stories make an appearance, yet you don’t have to have read the first book to enjoy the second. It’s a wonderful story all on its own.If I didn’t love the Onslow Boys enough after reading The Boys of Summer, I definitely love them plenty now. Getting a closer glimpse into the hotness that i [...]

    17. In the same vein as The Boys of Summer, Duggan takes us back to Onslow where all the summer love of the hottie Onslow Boys takes place. An Endless Summer gives us Sean and Amy’s story.Their story is a nice one with less angst than The Boys of Summer. Set a few years after The Boys of Summer, Amy Henderson has grown up a bit and heads back to Onslow. When I say ‘grown up a bit’, she is 19 years old, but does still have bouts of Princess Syndrome, which she at least is able to point out hers [...]

    18. What I Thought: CJ Duggan had completely blew me away with The Boys of Summer, so she really had to make An Endless Summer on par to grab my attention - and she did. We have a new protagonist, but all of our favourite characters are back, four years on in the future! This time, we live the life of Amy, who has come back to stay in Onslow after years away in boarding school, but the Onslow hotel is not how she remembers leaving it. The place has become a bit of a wreck and now it's up to Amy to g [...]

    19. Review also found at kristineandterri/23.5 stars was really excited for this installment in the Summer series by C.J Duggan because it features Sean. I sort of fell in love with him in the first book The Boys of Summer and was hoping he would get his own story, and here it was.I'm going to start with what I did not like first. I have come to know Duggan as being able to write relationships where romance is so intense and yet subtle (I can't even explain it) that you are drawn in to see if it wil [...]

    20. So, I am kind of embarrassed that it took me THIS long to review this book. See, I got this book as an ARC, before it was released even. And I kind of stayed up until two in the morning and read it, and then emailed CJ as soon as I was done. CJ laughed at me. I loved it. But that is beside the point. I was a huge fan of the first book in the series, you can read my review of book #1 here if you are interested!I was so excited to get back to Onslow! But I was cringing along with Amy. Selling the [...]

    21. WOW C.J I don't know what to say but you have written yet another AMAZING book. Sean I am so in love with him. I love everything about him and especially the lake house. OMG!!!I couldn't stop laughing at the personalities of each character, what they got up to and who they are as a person. You have visualised on what true friends and family are about and everyone get together and help each other and no one gets left behind no matter what!!! This here is very important to me and I like what you h [...]

    22. *Before reading* whaaaaat. this book is about Amy? ugh. I was excited to read about the same characters in the first book. awesome. we'll see how this goes.*after reading*OMFG THERE'S ANOTHER ONE OMG MY LIFE IS COMPLETE THANK YOU C.J. DUGGAN! I LOVE YOU. But omg this book made me love Sean even more! I didn't even know that was possible! I almost cried until I found out who actually bought the Onslow. Which made me incredibly happy. Wow. I love this series so much. I'm going to read The Boys of [...]

    23. LOVE this series, very good book and i liked the fact that it wasn't just about Sean and Amy , it was also saving the Onslow! Very good book ! x

    24. Review taken from our Book Blog The Three BookateersFor those of you who have not yet heard of An Endless Summer, I will let you know that it is the second book in the “Summer Series”. This series was written by the talented Australian writer: C.J Duggan.The first book in the Summer Series is called The Boys Of Summer. Reading the first book, I felt like it was definitely a cutesy romance, and that is what originally drew me in to signing up for the Endless Summer Blog Tour. BOY OH BOY am I [...]
