Landon's mother has given him clear instructions, he has to keep his distance from Chloe and Jenna. It's fine if they spend time together, but he's a guy and they are pretty girls, which is usually a dangerous situation. He's a gentleman and he thinks he can do it, but when he sees Chloe he isn't so sure anymore. They both have their secrets and opening up isn't easy. Plus they will be brother and sister in a few weeks. Will Landon be able to obey his mother or is it too difficult for him to follow her orders?
The Summer Before Forever is a beautiful sweet story. Chloe is a kindhearted girl. She's terribly shy, but she doesn't run away from a challenge. She knows what she wants and she's very talented. Landon is smart and he's a real gentleman. He's a guy many girls dream about, but this doesn't make him arrogant. He's insecure rather than cocky and that makes him adorable. I immediately loved Chloe and Landon's connection. They are absolutely wonderful together.
I like that Melissa Chambers mixes humor with serious topics.Read more ›
I seem to be addicted to forbidden romances at the moment, and I must admit it was what attracted me to request a review copy of The Summer Before Forever. However, to categorize this book as such would be doing it a massive injustice, because there is so much depth to this read and it is much more than just a story of two soon to be step-siblings who fall hard for each other.
This is a story about overcoming obstacles to follow your heart's desire.
Chloe undergoes massive character development throughout this book, bolstered by support from both Landon and Jenna. Jenna was an absolute hoot - a minor celebrity thanks to a stint on a TV show/competition, she clearly loves the spotlight. She is the polar opposite of shy Chloe in that regard. However, Jenna was such a fantastic friend to her, encouraging her to come out of her shell, and to deal with the issues as a result of a horrible assault she had endured.
Landon had my heart from the first time he made an appearance on my Kindle. What a complete and utter sweetheart. It's clear they are attracted to one another from the minute they meet but it takes a few weeks for them to act on it. I loved the build-up and getting to know both of them during that time. They really brought out the best in one another, and it epitomizes everything that is wonderful in a relationship when it's truly meant to be.
I've heard of dyslexia but I hadn't heard of dyscalculia until I read this book. Landon was following a different path in life rather than the one he desired because he felt the limitations of his disability. He never came across as weak even though he often felt like that on the inside.Read more ›
Chloe's dad has decided to re-marry giving him a new family and step-son. Chloe agrees to spend the summer with her new family with the understanding that her best friend will be there to help her enjoy a sun kissed beach summer.
Unfortunately just before she heads out for the vacation she gets into a sticky situation at home which leaves her lacking in social confidence. When she meets her future step-brother he is the perfect gentleman to help her over come her new fear. He is more than she ever could have imagined and they hit it off from the start, as the lines begin to blur she realises her feelings maybe less platonic and more lustful. Can she really have it all?
Landon has a secret of his own and his hardworking summer sounds less than fun but he has a good support system to help him through it. He welcomes Chloe as a distraction and realises there is more to life than avoiding the hard stuff.
This is a sweet step romance that ticks all the right boxes. 4.5 stars out of 5. I would recommend it to ages around 16 (uk) and those who are young at heart. This book offers a diverse look at teens struggle with accepting who you are and not caring about what others think.
*I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

Landon ... sigh... every girl should have a Landon in her life at some point. He's sweet but masculine, protective but not overbearing, perfect but not. Chloe seems musical and chill, especially when it comes to her best friend/reality star Jenna, but she's dealing with something no teenager should have to deal with, and she's doing the best she can. When these two meet, their mutual attraction is off the charts and as they get to know each other, remaining simply step-siblings poses a challenge that neither one will, or wants to, meet.
I can't wait for Book 2, which I anticipate focuses on Jenna, an outgoing, dynamic female character (the type I love to see in YA). I'm curious who she ends up with, and look forward to being with these characters again.
