The Summer Dare
Summers in Seaside meant time with Nana, my sisters and an entire season at the beach.
Nana always took care of everything far in advance, so it shouldn’t be surprising that she’d planned renovations for after she passed.
However she failed to mention said plans to anyone.
So imagine my surprise, when I’m awoken by the blasting sound of a saw practically coming through my wall, the first official morning of summer break.
Not only did I come flying out of bed swinging, but I gave Ryan, the unsuspecting carpenter the surprise of his life, when I came wielding my killer coat hanger and all. Too bad, I was only in a tank and undies and it wasn’t nearly as effective as I’d hoped.
Of course, Ryan insists Nana paid for this project in full and he’s only doing his job.
But my sisters and I must make this summer memorable without Nana. It was her final request. I refuse to let a tall, pesky, sexy as sin, know-it-all get in our way. Nope – not a chance.
For the next few weeks, I do my best to pretend I ignore Ryan – until my youngest sister throws down a dare I can’t back down from.
Kiss the next single guy who walks up to the bonfire – or explain to my sisters why I get riled up over Ryan.
When Ryan suddenly appears, I know I’m screwed in more ways than one.
Not only will my sisters find I’ve been keeping a secret, but from the determined look on Ryan’s face, I’m afraid he’s eager to reveal it to the world as well.
What have I gotten myself into?
As I walk toward him, one thing is certain – this summer dare will either make or break me.
The Summer Ultimatum
Watching my sister fall in love last summer gave me something I hadn’t expected—hope. It gave me hope that there might be someone out there for me and hope that I might get past my misguided fears and finally let someone in.
With my help, Ryan’s planning the most epic proposal. I just have to get the know-it-all musician I work with to fall in line to make it work.
Jax is wicked smart, extremely talented, and sexy as sin. But he can’t see the forest for the trees when it comes to his potential. He’d rather keep playing in dive bars along the coast than take a real shot at success.
When the Seaside festival has a music competition, I present Jax with an ultimatum that will either make or break both our careers.
I’ve laid it all on the line, but can he?
The Summer Proposal
My sisters are dropping like flies.
They’re falling in love and having the time of their lives.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m ecstatic for them. I love seeing them happy.
But I’m not ready for that type of commitment.
I can’t even keep a plant alive, let alone find someone worthy of getting past a third date.
As the only sister done with school and single as a pringle, I have to do something fast, or I’ll be my match-making aunt’s next victim.
When Jax’s drummer joins him for the summer and needs some help with his image, I make him a deal he can’t refuse.
All is perfect—until I realize my summer proposal has one minor flaw.
Our relationship may be a sham, but there’s nothing fake about my feelings for Finn.
