In this sizzling novel of Renita Pizzitola’s Crush series, Felicity knows that “Summer Boys” are only good for one thing. But what if hooking up with the right guy could lead to a fresh start?
Like most of the residents of her dead-end beach town, Felicity Daniels doesn’t know what she wants from her future. Instead of college, she’s waiting tables at the local grille where she’s more likely to run into the guy who was the love of her life—until one decision changed everything. Now as this year’s tourist season kicks in to high gear, Felicity realizes that whatever she wants isn't going to be found here.
Mason Hayes is the quintessential Summer Boy: hot, impulsive, and born without strings attached. While in town helping with the family fishing charter, he plans to have a little fun—and hopefully get over a certain girl. He’s never had a long-term relationship, but when he meets Felicity, he wonders if he’s found the girl who could change that.
With her heart still in repair, Felicity’s happy to have a distraction like Mason, but her best friend thinks he could also be her ticket out of this town. What’s the harm in using him to escape more than just her boredom? After all, he is just a Summer Boy, and they never stick around. But after one kiss, Felicity wonders if only one summer with Mason will ever really be enough.
Advance praise for Just a Little Kiss
“In the tradition of new adults everywhere, Felicity and Mason stumble through their new relationship as it transitions from a summer sweetness to autumnal angst . . . [with] charming secondary relationships and [a] beautifully detailed setting.”—Publishers Weekly
Praise for Just a Little Crush
“Brinley and Ryder are the perfect combination of sweet and hot. They’ll have you pulling for second chances.”—USA Today bestselling author Lisa Desrochers
“Be prepared to swoon hard over Ryder in Just a Little Crush, Renita Pizzitola’s impressive New Adult debut. Brinley and Ryder are drawn together in an almost hypnotic way and I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the utterly sexy, sweet, romantic, and scorching moments between them. I loved it!”—Christina Lee, author of the Between Breaths series
Young love and turmoil reign in Pizzitola's flimsy third Crush contemporary (after Just a Little Flirt). Felicity is 19 and mature for her age, living on her grandfather's houseboat and working as a waitress in her tiny hometown of Port Lucia, on an unspecified American coast. Her hobbies include spending time with friends, avoiding her ex, taking photos, and keeping her eyes on all of the "Summer Boys" who invade the town each year. Mason is helping with his uncle's charter fishing company during his summer off from college, and he expects to pass the time with a local girl or three, but nothing prepared him for the passionate, sparkling Felicity his cousin's best friend. In the tradition of new adults everywhere, Felicity and Mason stumble through their new relationship as it transitions from a summer sweetness to autumnal angst. Occasional respites from the shallow clich s can be found in the charming secondary relationships and beautifully detailed setting.
