Mallory Westbrook is ready to make her move on Jake Summerford, the boy – now man – she's been crushing on for years. Coming back to Magnolia Sound to celebrate her great-grandfather's birthday provides the perfect opportunity to show Jake that she's no longer a child.
The last thing Jake expected to do at his mentor's birthday party was to find himself kissing Mallory under the moonlight. Though he's known her for years, the thought of kissing her never crossed his mind. But the shy tomboy he once knew is gone, and in her place is a woman he can't resist.
They have one summer before they go their separate ways. Insecurity wars with the possibility of a future together, but it could all come to an end before it even has a chance to start.
**This book is the pre-quel to the Magnolia Sound series**
Sweet and charming read!
I originally read Sunkissed Days by Samantha Chase when she shared it in her newsletter and loved it. It was sweet, charming and enchanting. Mallory Westbrook has crushed on Jake for so long, but he never saw her as more than a friend. So, when she visits her grandfather for his birthday, she is determined to have him finally see her.
Jake never saw Mallory coming, much less finding himself kissing her. But Mallory is no longer the young girl he remembers, instead she is pulling all these unexpected feelings from him. Can he give in to temptation when she is the granddaughter of a man he respects and works for? I loved watching Jake and Mallory spend a summer exploring each other, but what will happen when the summer ends?
They both have dreams they want to accomplish, can they do it together or will they be walking away from each other? Sunkissked Days by Samantha Chase was such a sweet read. It was fun and sexy with great characters. I am excited to read more from this series!

A great story, clean romantic without being vulgar. I only get free books, so it will be a long time before I get to know the end of the story.
