Book Review: Summer's Temptation

Summer's Temptation (Vandeveer University, #1) by Ashley Lynn Willis:
If there are only three truths in life, they are these. Women will always try to change a man. Men will always say anything to get a girl in bed. Tyler Mason will always have a long line of girls trying to domesticate him, and none will succeed. If one of these ceases to be true, the world will cease to exist.

These are the rules as college student Cassie Faye knows them, so when she gives up on dating in favor of a man who can satisfy her without tempting her heart, her next-door neighbor Tyler tops the list. Tyler isn’t the type of boy Cassie would fall for, but he’s the perfect guy to teach her how to claim her sexual independence without losing her heart in the process. Too late, Cassie finds out that under his womanizing exterior is an attentive, considerate lover who brings out passions in her that she'd barely glimpsed before.

What if she’s wrong about the third truth? What if the world as she knows it is about to cease to exist?

Lisa's thoughts: Cassie is a good Texas girl attending a good Texas university. She is recovering from heartbreak as her long time boyfriend Wyatt left her for another girl. Cassie has given up on relationships so she can put her studies first. The problem is she still has physical needs she wants met. We meet Cassie and her two best friends Liz and Hannah when they go vibrator shopping.

Liz tries to convince Cassie a vibrator is not what she needs and she should find a man to be her ‘hug buddy’. Hannah is totally against the idea and tells Cassie to stick with the vibrator. After much debate Cassie finally asks Tyler, the boy next door, to be her hug buddy.

This book is written in the first person, from Cassies point of view. This limits the reader getting to know Tyler.

The setting is rather innocent and predictable. It is that or a university campus where most of the students are rich and Cassie is the only one who needs to worry about her scholarship.

For those choosing to read this story stick with it until chapter ten before you decide to give up on it.

I gave the book three hearts because it is a sweet love story that made for a nice weekend read. The first ten chapters dragged on a bit and I nearly gave up but I’m glad I didn’t because after that the character development is both charming and funny.
