I admired how all four authors were able to write individual stories, yet link them together at the same time. Joss, Sydney, Darby, and Avery felt like girls who were great friends, yet were able to have their own adventures while still connecting with each other. Not unlike friendships in the real world, they grow separately yet together. Somehow it works.
Likewise the cute and the happy and the adorable are....I mean, these guys? These guys are keepers. They know how to make their ladies swoon, yet support and comfort in the tough moments. Because lest you think these are only fluffy, happy, shallow fantasies, I should note that each of the girls have hard and not-so-fluffy things to deal with. Their struggles are part of who they are becoming and it's a wonderful thing to see each one grow stronger by the end.
When you're in the mood for a few laughs, a few sweet moments, a few heart-melting moments, a few swoony moments, and a lot of happy grinning, then you should definitely check these stories out. Delightful summer reading just like the title suggests!

"You sure about this?"
"Yes," I say. "Mostly. Pretty much. Minus a few areas of doubt. But the good kind. So, back to yes. Absolutely. At least ninety-percent."
