Review: The Boys of Summer (Summer #1)

The Boys of Summer (Summer #1) by C.J Duggan

Publisher:  C.J Duggan
Source: Free from Amazon
Genre: Young Adult, New Adult, Romance, Contemporary, Chick Lit

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
It seemed only natural to nickname them the ‘Onslow Boys’. Every time they swaggered in the front door of the Onslow Hotel after a hard week’s work, their laughter was loud and genuine as they settled onto their bar stools. I peeked through the restaurant partition, a flimsy divider between my world and theirs. I couldn’t help but smile whenever I saw them, saw him... Toby Morrison.

Quiet seventeen-year-old Tess doesn’t relish the thought of a summertime job. She wants nothing more than to forget the past haunts of high school and have fun with her best friends before the dreaded Year Twelve begins.

To Tess, summer is when everything happens: riding bikes down to the lake, watching the fireworks at the Onslow Show and water bomb fights at the sweltering Sunday markets.

How did she let her friends talk her into working?

After first-shift disasters, rude, wealthy tourists and a taunting ex-boyfriend, Tess is convinced nothing good can come of working her summer away. However, Tess finds unlikely allies in a group of locals dubbed ‘The Onslow Boys’, who are old enough to drive cars, drink beer and not worry about curfews. Tess’s summer of working expands her world with a series of first times with new friends, forbidden love and heartbreaking chaos.

All with the one boy she has never been able to forget.

It will be a summer she will always remember.

My Review:
This book is the first in its series. We meet loads of characters, while reading it you'll pick your favorite characters and the worst character of all time. 3 Best friends Adam, Tess and Ellie are year 11 students getting to finish for the year and start an amazing summer. Adam convinces Tess and Ellie to work with him at his uncles hotel/pub and get this its the in place to be (also known as the Onslow) for the entire summer. Adam made a promise to them that it will be the best summer of their lives before they start their last of school. Ellie agree without a second thought, but its Tess that is reluctant to agree it takes some persuading from her 2 besties.

The onslow is the center hub of all that is on in the small town the hotel is everyone's hang out it is where everything is happening, its also home base for Adam's brother and his mates Toby, Sean Stan and Ringer, these group of boys are very popular and very very attractive, sexy and hot, you name it they have it. And they have been dubbed "The Onslow Boys" by the town teens within the female population, they have their undivided attention and everyone of them are irresistable in their own right. This story is Toby and Tess's, Toby is the older hot guy with the already beautiful hot girlfriend. Tess on the other hand is the quite, naive and insecure girl with no idea what she has going for her. She has had a crush on Toby since before she rocked into her first year of high school and he had no idea that she even existed until this summer that changed everything. What is a girl to do?
