Holly Hayes is a realist, if nothing else. She's going to be Maid of Honor at her best friend, Emma's wedding in Summer Lake. Pete Hemming, self made millionaire, powerful CEO, all around good guy, is going to be the Best Man. If they're going to be able to get through their official duties, there's one thing they'll need to deal with first. Sex!
He may be out of her league socially and financially, but one thing is clear. He wants her. She wants him. What's the harm in one night of passion? It's inevitable they're going to end up naked together. So it's best to get it out of the way early, right? So they can get on with organizing the wedding.
Pete Hemming is a man with a plan. He's lived his life by the plan, built his business by it. The plan doesn't allow for a woman in his life, only in his bed. Trouble is, once he gets Holly into his bed, he can't get her out of his mind. But he can't let her into his life, can he?
The Summer Lake series follows a group of friends from a small lakeside town in the California hills. They have kept in touch over the years and now, in their early thirties, their lives are drawing them back to Summer Lake and to each other.

I love these people reminds me of my younger years up in northern Michigan.
Work Like You Dont Need The Money
Another awesome story from the Summer Lake series!!
I love how the story is told and how we get points of view from different characters. Also, this books is HOT!! And sweet at the same time!!
I knew I would love it after I read Love Like You've Never Been Hurt (Emma and Jack's story) and couldn't put it down!! If possible, I think this one was even better! I felt like Holly was a little more relatable, and Pete felt like a stronger character. I also enjoyed knowing a little bit more about Emma and Jack after the ending of the last book.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a romantic novel and stories about friends who have kept in touch a very long time.
I really enjoyed this book. Just couldn't put it down.
