Title: One Short Summer
Series: Brooksville #2/Standalone
Author: Jasmin Miller
Genre: Sweet Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Alyssa Garcia, Uplifting Designs
Release Date: July 31, 2019
A sweet, flirty, and heartfelt romance with two roommates that spend one enthralling summer together.
After her car accident, Monica believes her dance career is over, despite the positive outlook everyone else has. Instead of trying to get back on her feet, she works on perfecting the art of couch surfing.
Famous author, Gabe Mitchell, doesn’t fare much better. On top of watching his roommate letting her life pass by, he also suffers from a major bout of writer’s block.
Hoping a change of scenery will get them both out of their rut, Gabe takes matters into his own hands and whisks Monica away to his own personal haven.
What neither one of them expects is the attraction to each other to bloom even though Monica will leave Brooksville in a matter of weeks.
Their time together is filled with skimpy bathing suits, sexy fantasy book inspirations, hot tub make-out sessions, and new job prospects.
It’s plenty to reignite their creative flames, but will it be enough to turn their one short summer into something more?

Immediately after finishing Baking with a Rockstar, I knew I wanted Monica and Gabe's story. I love a good friends to lovers romance and these two aren't just friends, they're roommates. This was the sweetest and swooniest story and I adored it!
Monica has been staying with Gabe for a while now. After an injury left her unable to continue her career in dance, she's missing that direction for her life. Dance has always been that one thing she wanted to do and not knowing if she'll be able to do it in the future terrifies her. Gabe is trying to help her move on. He knows she has it in her to dance again and they go on a bit of a get away to motivate her.
“Monica, you will dance again. You know that, right?” His voice is strong and steady, so full of confidence that my heart skips a beat. I shrug my shoulders but don’t respond. I want to believe it. I want to believe him. But I’m afraid it’s too late.
Gabe is an author and he has it bad for Monica. This retreat they go on makes him realize it even more. The more time these two spend together isolated, the more Monica's feelings for Gabe start to develop. I loved watching these two fall for one another. Watching them fall in love was the best. Just as this is all happening, Monica finds it in herself starting to dance again. And as thrilling as it is for her, if she goes back to her dance company, it takes her away from Gabe which is a scary thought... what's a girl to do?
Gabe was seriously the best hero. He was kind, generous, and all around a great guy. I loved Monica as well. It was great to watch her find herself again after the rut she was in. I also loved getting to see some of the characters from the first book in this series. Even though this book can be read as a complete stand-alone, I would recommend checking out the first book. It will give you a bit of Monica and Gabe's back story, plus it's a great read!
If you're looking for something sexy, sweet, fun, and flirty pick this up! You'll be left with a big smile on your face. This is the perfect summer read!!
Pulling out the barstool beside her, I sit down, wanting to be on her eye level. It takes me bumping my knees into hers for her to look at me, but at least she finally does. “Hey! Remember it’s me you’re talking to. We’ve been sharing a house for most of the last year. That’s pretty much as close as anyone has ever been to me, not that I would do this for just anyone. You’re a very sweet, kind, caring, and talented person. You need to get it in your pretty head that you don’t owe me a thing. I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.”
My words don’t exactly trigger the response I intended as I watch the pink tinge travel up Monica’s neck and cheeks before she covers her face with her hands. “Oh gosh. Stop it already. I can't remember the last time I blushed. How embarrassing.”
I’m absolutely stunned she’s reacting this way.
It’s also interesting she can still surprise me after we’ve known each other all this time.
