Just Finished Reactions & Progress Post: Slow Summer Kisses by Shannon Stacey

Slow Summer Kisses - Shannon Stacey


At first, I was reading this and rolling my eyes. The beginning just put a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe it's the fact that I haven't read a contemporary in years, but it was rubbing me wrong. Then the story settled into itself, and I began to enjoy it for what it was: a lazy (in a good way) summer novella. 






Progress Notes: 

07/11/2012     5.0% "So far I am not enchanted with the book. It's a bit trope filled... but that is kind of what I wanted. Just a mindless summer fling. And I think this would live up to that.... thus far."
