It Happened One Summer By Tessa Bailey // Book Review

About the Book

Piper Bellinger is fashionable, influential, and her reputation as a wild child means the paparazzi are constantly on her heels. When too much champagne and an out-of-control rooftop party lands Piper in the slammer, her stepfather decides enough is enough. So he cuts her off, and sends Piper and her sister to learn some responsibility running their late father’s dive bar… in Washington

Piper hasn’t even been in Westport for five minutes when she meets big, bearded sea captain Brendan, who thinks she won’t last a week outside of Beverly Hills. So what if Piper can’t do math, and the idea of sleeping in a shabby apartment with bunk beds gives her hives. How bad could it really be? She’s determined to show her stepfather—and the hot, grumpy local—that she’s more than a pretty face.

Except it’s a small town and everywhere she turns, she bumps into Brendan. The fun-loving socialite and the gruff fisherman are polar opposites, but there’s an undeniable attraction simmering between them. Piper doesn’t want any distractions, especially feelings for a man who sails off into the sunset for weeks at a time. Yet as she reconnects with her past and begins to feel at home in Westport, Piper starts to wonder if the cold, glamorous life she knew is what she truly wants. LA is calling her name, but Brendan—and this town full of memories—may have already caught her heart.

My Thoughts // ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Five glowing stars for this book! I read this and just kept reading and I could not put it down. Tessa Bailey gives you a fantastic romcom with a heartfelt story line.

Piper is a wild child roaming around Los Angeles throwing parties. Brendan is the opposite. Settled in a small town working as a fisherman, he is stable and fixed in his life, that is until Piper comes splashing through and catching his eye.

There is nothing I can say that is negative about this book. I absolutely loved it. It reminded me of summer romance and cute romantic adventures. I absolutely adored this book.

Piper and Brendan were just adorable together. Brendan sees Piper for who she is and accepts her with everything she comes with. A story about a woman finding herself and falling in love.

This book has turned into my first 5 star of the year. Pure joy and absolutely adorable read. If you enjoy romcoms then splash right into this book. It will not let you down!
