Peek Inside The Summer of Jake

Life is just dandy for aspiring fashion designer Annalise Farley. She'll have a great job once her designs are discovered, and she knows that will happen soon. There's nothing more she wants...until Jake Maxwell, the guy who broke her heart at sixteen, saunters back into her life needing her help. Helping Jake land his next girlfriend is the last thing Annalise wants to do, but Jake's a shrewd businessman and makes her an offer she can't refuse. Now Annalise has to decide if having her designs in Jake's surf shops is worth having her heart broken again.

Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan…

Life is just dandy for aspiring fashion designer Annalise Farley. She has a great job (or she will once her designs are discovered), parents who only slightly disapprove, a cat that thinks she’s a dog, and a best friend…even if she hasn’t seen her in a while.

But then Jake Maxwell saunters back into her life. Jake, the love god. Jake, her best friend’s older brother. Jake, who broke her heart at sixteen without realizing it, then left to become a pro surfer. Now he’s back, having taken the surfing and business worlds by storm, and he’s ready for a new challenge—catching the eye of another girl. And he wants Annalise’s help.

Helping Jake land his next girlfriend is too fraught with emotional danger for her liking, but then Jake offers to put her designs in his shops. Is that the sound of her life cracking at the seams? It’s hard to tell with Jake smiling at her like she’s the only thing that makes him happy…

I've been a BIG fan of Rachel Bailey's books for a long time so when I heard she had her first New Adult title out I was very excited. 'The Summer of Jake' has all the things I love in Rachel's books - kicker story, stacks of emotion and a great romance - but the best part of this one for me was... ...more

Most people will tell you that falling in love is never part of the grand master plan of their lives. Most plan their careers, their vacations, the car they want to buy but planning on falling in love is just never as easy , nor is it what everyone plans on doing.

Yet it is exactly what Annalise... ...more

This is SUCH a fun read, even if you don’t read it in your head using an Australian accent like I did. The inside of Annalise’s head is a brilliant place to be (I imagine the inside of her cat/dog’s head is pretty entertaining, as well). Between raising a cat that thinks it’s a dog, speaking to h... ...more

I don't think Jake can help himself it's in his nature to flirt, "nope. I like jeans. Don't you like me in jeans?" He gave me a mischievous grin." He's also not dumb, especially when it comes to Annalise, "you sometimes look at me with sadness in your eyes, and I wondered if someone had hurt you.... ...more

I will admit, when I first read the title for this book it didn't really capture my attention. However, I'm quickly growing to love books by this publisher so I decided to give it a go as combined with the cover it looked like a feel-good read.

This was a great summer...

Her books have hit the USA Today bestseller list, are published in over twenty-six countries and have been translated into sixteen languages. She lives on a piece of paradise (ten acres of native trees on the side of a hill, within driving distance to the beach) on Australia's east coast with her own personal hero. She loves to sit with a dog or two, overlooking the trees and read books from her ever-growing to-be-read pile.
