Goodreads synopsis

Aiden Emerson is an all-star pitcher and the all-around golden boy of Riverton. Or at least he was, before he quit the team the last day of junior year without any explanation. How could he tell people he’s losing his vision at seventeen?

Straight-laced Olivia thought she had life all figured out. But when her dream internship falls apart, her estranged mother comes back into her life, and her long-time boyfriend ghosts her right before summer break, she’s starting to think fate has a weird sense of humor.

Each struggling to find a new direction, Aiden and Olivia decide to live summer by chance. Every fleeting adventure and stolen kiss is as fragile as a coin flip in this heartfelt journey to love and self-discovery from the author of Love Songs & Other Lies.

My thoughts

I absolutely Loved, loved this book! It was the perfect treat before the start of the summer and I’m sure it will bring joy to anyone who decides to pick it up, this was really a treat and it gave me all the perfect summer vibes.

When Summer ends was such an easy read, We follow both Olivia and Aiden who are both trying to figure out which path to take after everything they had planned for the future was changed.  I love their chemistry and the friendship in this story was all well done.  The setting was perfect and the story was easy to follow even thought it alternated between Aiden and Olivia’s POV.

This is the second book I read by Jessica Pennington and I have to say it did not disappoint at all, I loved it as much as I loved Love Songs & Other Lies I love the artistic aspect of the story and how decisions were made by a coin toss, that is living freely LOL.

My one and only complain about the story was the story with Olivia and her mom I just wish it wasn’t there at all or that it was resolved better than it did but other than that I loved this book.

Overall, this was a nice and easy summer read without heavy romantic drama and I liked it a lot!
