Just for the Summer

By Abby Jimenez
Just for the Summer by Abby Jimenez digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Instant #1 New York Times bestseller and a Good Morning America Book Club Pick!
This witty, slow-burn rom-com is the "ideal beach read." --Elle

Justin has a curse, and thanks to a Reddit thread, it's now all over the internet. Every woman he dates goes on to find their soul mate the second they break up. When a woman slides into his DMs with the same problem, they come up with a plan: They'll date each other and break up. Their curses will cancel each other’s out, and they’ll both go on to find the love of their lives. It’s a bonkers idea… and it just might work. 

Emma hadn't planned that her next assignment as a traveling nurse would be in Minnesota, but she and her best friend agree that dating Justin is too good of an opportunity to pass up, especially when they get to rent an adorable cottage on a private island on Lake Minnetonka.

It's supposed to be a quick fling, just for the summer. But when Emma's toxic mother shows up and Justin has to assume guardianship of his three siblings, they're suddenly navigating a lot more than they expected--including catching real feelings for each other. What if this time Fate has actually brought the perfect pair together?

“Honestly if you’re looking for a well-rounded review, stop reading now. I have 0 notes: had the absolute BEST time reading Just for the Summer. Sometimes I think there can be no new angles for a romcom; yet Jimenez did it with this one. I also love the way minor storylines and characters from other books are interwoven: it’s giving MCU. I plan to read every other book that’s connected and (I’m just hypothesizing here) have a great time doing it! One more thing - the integration of mental health throughout the plot? Chef’s kiss.”
