Check out my stop on the blog tour for Kickflip Summer by Danielle Jacks!
by Danielle Jacks
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 15th 2020
All I want is one last summer of fun with my best friend, Toby.
Blue Oaks Theme Park seems like a perfect place to work while blowing off some steam. It’s our last summer before university and we want to make every day count. The thing I didn’t consider was being attracted to my new boss.
But it’s just one summer. One quick fling. What harm can it do?
Returning home is something I can’t avoid. My dad wants me to start getting serious about my future, while I want to spend the summer teaching kids skateboarding.
As always, he gets his own way, but when a cute brunette – literally – knocks me off my feet, I’m finding the theme park interesting in a whole new way.
A summer romance. Totally insubstantial. I can handle that. Right?
Two people brought together by chance. Both finding something they don’t know they need. A sweet romance about finding a home in the heart.
Bear’s point of view
“Do you ever think about taking something
that isn’t yours?” I ask.
I run my palm through my hair. Her eyes
meet mine briefly before she looks away. I don’t know what her deal is with
Toby. Are they misunderstood friends who eventually will become more? Isn’t
that how it goes in the movies? Kara isn’t mine, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting
her. Would it be so bad to give in to an
urge? Our eyes meet again and she takes hold of my shirt, pulling me
“Like a stolen kiss, you mean?”
Before I can answer,
her mouth comes crashing down on mine. Every nerve ending in my body comes
alive. Her lips are warm and soft. The taste of apple and honey fills my senses
as I drink her in. A kiss has never felt this good, and my hands stray up her
back and into her silky hair. I can’t get enough and I don’t want this to end.
She read my mind. This is exactly what I meant when I asked the question.
Kissing Kara is like nothing I’ve experienced before. She’s beautiful and
delicious. Her touch is sweet and addictive. Kissing her is my undoing. I
already want more. I already crave more.
