Jenna Shaw ran away to escape her past. In fact, she jumped on a plane and flew to Portugal to try and forget it. However, it turns out leaving everything behind isn't as easy as it sounds.
She thought she could move on and break free of her fears--that if she had some space the pain would stop. But as memories resurface due to an ill-timed joke, the past crashes into her present once more and she didn't see it coming.
Jenna's plans for normality are derailed by the charismatic Ethan Brooks. She sees him as an annoyance; he sees her as a challenge. But as he tries every trick known to him to impress her, they only serve to push her further away. He's never faced this problem before and Ethan has to work harder than he ever has if he wants to win over and help his mysterious girl.
A young adult romance, this novella would be a great book for teenagers or as a feel-good summer read.
I really enjoyed Summer Demons, and devoured it in a little amount of time. It’s a perfect, short read that gives you a little bit of romance, heart ache, and hope.
There are dark events that plague Jenna, and it’s hard for her to get past them. She tries, and I think that definitely shows a lot about her personality. She also holds guilt that isn’t hers to bear. I adored Ethan. He comes off as cocky at first, but you can definitely tell he has a soft side to him.
I think the progression of the story was great. Everyone wants summer romance when they are young. Summer Demons is a perfect portrayal of that. I can’t wait to see what the next book in this novella series is about.
