Blog Tour: Last Summer review

Last Summer By Rebecca A. Rogers
Genre: New Adult
Rating: 3.5 stars/ B

Summary: All Chloe Sullivan wants to do is get through the summer. Her life has been in disarray for more than six months, and she knows the only reason her parents made one final trip to Sandy Shores is because of her. They are, after all, two seconds away from filing for divorce. When Chloe stumbles upon a boy in one of her childhood hangouts, she’s in for more than just a relaxing summer vacation.

Logan Andrews is exhausted, famished and, quite frankly, kaput. His parents kicked him out when he refused to attend a rehabilitation program for his drug addiction. Now, he wishes he would’ve listened; he’d be receiving appropriate medical care rather than living in a dingy, godforsaken shack, holing up from money-hungry drug dealers.

Logan’s godsend arrives in the form of Chloe, who can’t hold her tongue when it comes to matters of the heart. They’re both in for a rude awakening when Logan’s past catches up to them, though. Can they escape the drug dealers showing up at every twist and turn, or will things end much worse than they ever imagined?

WARNING: contains strong language, drug use, and sexual situations, including an explicit sex scene and a near-rape scene. Mature audiences only. 17+

This was probably the quickest book I've ever read. It took me just over four hours, which is extremley quick for me. But I must say I enjoyed those four hours quickly taking in everything that went on.

This book is based around drugs. Which I'm not used to reading much of. But when I do read books that use this topic I always like to see how its played out. You have the main character Chloe who happens to be going back to her lake house for the summer with her parents who cannot stand each other.  She feels the summers going to be terrible and tends to distance herself from her family and goes for a walk where she finds a cottage she used to hide out at when she was a little girl. Which is where Logan comes into the story. Straight away Chloe knows somethings off about Logan and when she sees him taking drugs she knows she has to do something about it.

The romance was quickly developed, so much that I wanted more to happen between them. I felt it was a little rushed and that they could of took a bit more time getting to know each other. I wanted more emotions between the two. But saying that - the characters were developed so well that I felt I didnt mind it all happeneing quick because the passion these two characters had was amazing. Of course because these feelings to Logan were new.

I liked what Rebecca was trying to get at her authors. There was a message to this story. And it was showing you how drugs can actually affect people. It can affect people who arent even taking it and how serious the issue really is. Logans addiction in this story was actually very mild to what some cases are actually like, so to get a feel to what it would be like if you knew someone who was doing drugs it brings you to reality that this story felt very real.
Overall I did enjoy this book. I liked the ending even though some of it seemed a little quickly developed but I guess choosing other options for this book to end could of given it a different view. The epilogue was cute and deffinetly gives you that summer feel to the book. Thankyou Rebecca for sending me the book and allowing me to read/review a deep meaning story.
