Books from the Backlog - Summer at the Shore

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Summer at the Shore by V.K. Sykes

Blurb: Morgan Merrifield sacrificed her teaching career to try to save her family's bed-and-breakfast and care for her younger sister. She can't let herself get distracted by Ryan Butler. After all, the rugged ex-Special Forces soldier is only in Seashell Bay for the summer. But her longtime crush soon flares into real desire—and with one irresistible kiss, she's swept away.
Ryan values his freedom. As much as he wants Morgan, he's not ready to settle down with anyone, much less in sleepy Seashell Bay. But his code of honor doesn't allow him to leave a woman in distress—and she's in desperate need of help to fix the inn. It only takes one day working under the same roof and Ryan is already hoping for a lifetime of hot summer nights...

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I can never resist a "saving the family home or business" trope and this looks delightfully beachy.  Plus it's been on my NetGalley shelf for years.


  1. A summery read like this one sounds especially good right now...we're in another week of very cold temps where I live.

  2. I love a good second chance romance, and add in an old inn and summertime and it looks like a recipe for fun!

  3. I like reading these tropes as well. This sounds very promising! I hope you enjoy it whne you read it!

  4. I thought that this one looked familiar and it turns out that I have read it. I liked it but not as much as the first book in the series. I hope that you enjoy this one when you get the chance to read it!
