Summer is being chased by hidden dangers and it’s up to Evan to catch her. The question is . . . will he get to her in time?

My Review

Catching Summer is a wonderful second chance romance and it follows the story of Summer and Evan. For the past two years, Summer has been desperately trying to get her life back after tragically loosing her husband. Her loss has been a tough one, one that invades her dreams and has completely consumed her. But, now 2 years later, Summer has picked herself up and is living her life the way her husband would have wanted. And although the thought of moving on terrifies her, she knows that her husband would not have wanted her to be alone…Summer wasn’t ready or prepared for Evan, but when the two of them are forced together, they can’t deny the sparks that fly between them. Only not everyone is thrilled about Evan and Summer being together. Someone is trying to keep them apart and that someone will stop at nothing to achieve that goal….Will Summer get a second chance at love and life?

Catching Summer was well written and a really sweet second chance romance. One of the first things that drew me to this book was the cover. I love, love, love covers! After that, I had to read the synopsis. I really wanted a good, angsty read. And this book more than delivered on the angst and drama factor.

I loved Evan and Summer together. My heart ached for the way that Summer lost her husband and I just wanted her to find some happiness. She definitely deserved it. One of things I really loved and appreciated was how Evan was with Summer. He didn’t try to rush her. He was patient and understanding. You could tell that his feelings for Summer were genuine. Yes, he did have some alpha male/protective tendencies, but he was very swoon-worthy. And Summer….I can’t even imagine having to go through what she did. And after everything, she came out stronger than ever and determined to live her life. Evan was just what she needed.

Overall, I found Catching Summer to be a really great second chance romance. It was a quick and easy read for me. It was entertaining and definitely held my interest. It had just the right amount of angst, drama, romance and suspense. Yes, there was some suspense and mystery thrown into this love story. I really loved those twists and turns. They were very unexpected and really kept things interesting. This is the sixth book in the Second Chances series, but it can totally be read as a stand-alone.
