It Happened One Summer By Tessa Bailey is an absolute charming read. It was engaging, incredibly sweet, and very sexy. I adored the Schitt’s Creek meets Deadliest Catch vibe in romantic comedy structure. I loved Piper and Brendan and liked the good and bad times of them meeting up. This was an absolute pleasure and I pretty much inhaled it. I had a big smile on my face practically the whole time I was reading and when I did not, it was on the grounds that I was swooning and fanning myself from the totally scorching chemistry among Brendan and Piper.

Overall, I cannot tell you the amount I enjoyed It Happened One Summer By Tessa Bailey. I wanted to live in this book world for a little longer. The chemistry among Brendan and Piper just added such a great amount to the story, and I felt that the pacing was totally awesome. Excited for the future book in the series.
