The Summer Deal (Wildstone, #5)
From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes a friends-to-frenemies-to-sisters story… And then add in a love story (okay, two love stories). Shake. Stir. Read on a lazy summer day at the beach.Brynn Turner desperately wishes she had it together, but her personal life is like a ping-pong match that’s left her scared and hurt after so many attempts to get it right. In search of a place to lick her wounds and get a fresh start, she heads back home to Wildstone.And then there’s Kinsey Davis, who after battling serious health issues her entire twenty-nine years of life, is tired of hoping for . . . well, anything. She's fierce, tough, and pretty much the opposite of Brynn except for one thing: they're half-sisters. Kinsey is keeping this bombshell, and a few others as well. Long time frenemies from summer camp, there’s no way she’s going to tell Brynn they’re related.But then Brynn runs into Kinsey's lifelong best friend, Eli, renewing a childhood crush. He’s still easy-going and funny and sexy as hell. When he gets her to agree to a summer-time deal to trust him to do right by her, no matter what, she never dreams it’ll result in finding a piece of herself she didn’t even know was missing. She could have a sister, love, and a future―if she can only learn to let go of the past.As the long days of summer wind down, the three of them must discover if forgiveness is enough to grasp the unconditional love that’s right in front of them.

I don't want to mislead you. I did enjoy the periphery characters, but the main characters did not do anything for me...at all. I really loved Deck. He was an incredible character. He made limited appearances, but he stole the show for me for real. I adored his and Kenzie's relationship.Now for what I didn't like...I feel like Brynn accepted the fact that Kinsey was her sister WAY too readily. She didn't ask for proof or even time to accept it. It didn't match with all of the previous interactions between the two.Also, Brynn was definitely a hypocrite. She went around telling everyone that they had to be honest and there could be no more secrets, no more lies, blah, blah, blah. Then when she was looking for their dad, she say, "Sometimes people keep secrets because it's easier than the hurt and disappointment that knowing those secrets will lead to." She was quick to judge everyone around her, but then ran to hide when people turned the table on her.And then there was Eli... he was a bit stale to me. He was very complacent and just a drab character and I didn't connect with him at all.Overall, it just wasn't what I'm used to from this author.Thank you to the publisher for providing an early copy of this book.

But Kinsey has a secret she’s been keeping for 15 years that concerns Brynn. When the two meet up again, a meeting orchestrated Kinsey’s BFF Eli, that secret gets harder and harder to keep, esp when Kinsey discovers how wonderful a person Brynn really is.I hate spoilers so I won’t tell you what the secret is, but just know – it’s a doozy.Told with her usual witty flare and exceptional instinct for showing emotions, this book was simply wonderful. I know it’s going to be another Shalvis best-seller, so thank you to Netgalley and HarperCollins for allowing me a sneak peek at one of 2020 summers’ best.5 well deserved stars from me.

I loved the relationship between Brynn and Kinsey reconnecting and then frenemies turned life-long sisters. Brynn realizes that there is more to life than what she knew from the past. She reconnects also with Eli and then childhood crush becomes new love but, Brynn is still resenting all of this just from a past experience involving Brynn and Eli. Once Brynn lets god of the past, she can have it all and still be happy. I love Jill Shalvis' books because the theme is an important life lesson that all can relate to and can reflect on and this time it's letting go of the past. I know her books have done very well at our library and I know this one will be no different.We will consider adding this title to our Adult Fiction collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

    Like a 4.5ish rating. I liked it (yep, totally pounced on a digital arc from the publisher!), but it didnt have the exact same vibe as the others in the series. Kinda closer to the Heartbreaker Bay series in the friend zone. Okay, well kind of the same vibe for the wildstone books (obviously the setting is what they are named for), in that the relationship between the sisters is at the center, and the romantic love is more secondary. I enjoyed this whole cast of characters though. Definitely Like a 4.5ish rating.

I’d like to say I will write a better review later (if I remember to come back), but Jill Shalvis books tend to lead me into reading past bedtime. The laugh out loud character drama is fantastic here. Loved the ending! 100% vote for reading them in order. There are nuances that tie together in her books. Also, great binge read books!

After her latest boyfriend scammed her and took off with almost everything, the contents of her bank accounts included, she needs some time to reset and get her life in order. When a panic attack lands her in the ER the last thing she needs is to bump into Eli, her childhood summer camp crush and friend of Kinsey Davis, summer camp mean girl. Kinsey Davis has spent her entire life in and out of the hospital, most of that time with her best friend Eli by her side. Kinsey's had a rough life and has learned to not get her hopes up or attached to people. Eli couldn't be more thrilled to see Brynn, realizing that time hasn't dulled his affections for her, he offers her a room for rent in his house. When secrets start to come out, Brynn questions everything she thought she knew about her new roommates. This is such a wonderfully written story. It's about much so more than just Brynn and Eli's relationship, we get a bit of Kinsey and Deck, and see all the characters work through some pretty tough issues. I really enjoyed that it was about more than one relationship, the plot wasn't confusing or overwhelming. Each character's voice and distinct personality stayed true to them until the end, which I feel not all authors do well. Despite her prickly exterior, I adored Kinsey, and the amount of love and fierce protectiveness she had for the people that she did let in. Brynn was so relatable to me, feeling like an all-around train wreck most of the time, I'm so glad she learned to fight for the important people in her life. Despite the heavier plot, there was definitely comic relief in the form of Brynn's moms, they brought some much-needed levity and had me cackling. This is such a great read about so much more than just romantic love, it's about found family, forgiveness, patience, honesty and fighting for those you love. Highly recommend

Her best friend Eli is there as well, worried. He decides to go to the vending machine for snacks and runs into Brynn. They are surprised to see each other, she pretends to not remember him. These three went to summer camp together when they were kids. What Brynn doesn't know is a family secret that her and Kinsey share. While Eli is still as sexy as he was when they were younger.Kinsey thinks she is a walking expiation date and doesn't want anyone to get close. She's is seeing Deck but she won't let him stay over. Deck is head over heels, and is always there for her. It takes Kinsey awhile to realize that being loved is a gift and to enjoy and cherish it while she has it. In the end everything works out for everyone and the girls are more than they seem.I loved these characters they were going through a hard time and did the best they could. Brynn irritated me, everytime someone screwed up, kept something from her even when she was doing the same, she bailed. Kinsey keeps something from Brynn, and because Eli knows, Brynn takes her anger out on him too. Brynn cannot have it both ways and needs to work on that. I highly recommend this book, and a box of tissues, i have no idea how many times I cried. Who couldn't love a tall, sexy, mellow, caring, marine biologist in Eli?

Brynn is the girl who is just trying to find her home and her way after various jobs and choices she's made. Kinsey is battling a failing liver transplant and, while she comes across as cranky and mean, is really one of the strongest people in this story. Eli....a sexy, nerdy marine biologist, is the calming presence despite having demons of his own. Add in fun, spirited brother Max and...possibly my favorite....Kinsey's friend-with-benefits, Deck, and this group just got to me. I loved watching them interact with one another and how they all really become a family by the end. The Summer Deal is part of Shalvis's Wildstone women's fiction series. She has always been a top favorite of mine and this book truly continues that trend. I loved everything about this read and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a warm, funny, uplifting read.I received and ARC from NetGalley. The opinions here are my own.

While each of these two main characters certainly had their own issues, I enjoyed reading their story and flew through this book. I've enjoyed all the Wildstone books and this one was no exception. Though I do have to say that there were a few issues here. The author didn't really research the whole kidney thing well. I don't claim to know a whole lot, but a male can't donate a kidney to a female (and vice versa) in a direct match. There were also issues with the timeline for the last journal entry. Kinsey previously said she met her dad when she was 15 when she got the kidney. The last diary entry said she was 17. Also, I could NOT get why Kinsey wouldn't just tell Brynn the 3rd thing, especially once they were on their way.

She'll have to fight her impulse to push everyone away if she wants to keep her sister, her best friend, and her not-boyfriend.This book is another winner from Jill Shalvis. I'm a fan of her work, but this book felt different from some of her other novels. Perhaps it was the alternating POVs of Kinsey and Brynn, or the fact that Kinsey was an asshole (but a lovable asshole) when many of her characters are similar to Brynn, in that they are overly nice. This may be one of my favorite Jill Shalvis novels - kidney transplants are near and dear to me, and while there was steamy romance, there was also a lot of story and heart.

    The entire plot of the book is revealed by reading the back cover and first two chapters. What follows is a trip from point A to point Z stopping only at a few letters and bypassing the rest. It centers on two lifelong frenemies who are also half-sisters (only one of them knows this at the beginning of the book).

What follows is a trip from point A to point Z stopping only at a few letters and bypassing the rest. It centers on two lifelong “frenemies” who are also half-sisters (only one of them knows this at the beginning of the book). Despite brief flashbacks to the women’s childhoods, it’s never explained exactly why they hate each other so much. The feud comes off more like normal kid stuff, not the sort of full-on bullying that would justify the obnoxious behavior of these grown adults. And let me be clear: these women are AWFUL. And there is no clear reason why anyone endures their dramatics for the sake of friendship. There’s a lot of telling the reader how wonderful the two actually are, but all we see is selfish, immature behavior. There is a millimeter of personal growth from Kinsey, but alas we see Brynn pulling the same secretive nonsense in the epilogue that she does in the first chapter. I wish the book had done more showing than telling, and that it had left a few plot twists hidden for a bit. Overall, not an enjoyable read.

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. This is the first book I have read from Jills Shalvis and absolutely loved her writing style. I cant wait to read more by her. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

    The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis is a book that definitely provides all of the feels. It will make you laugh and it will make you cry. One thing it wont do? Disappoint you. I really enjoyed it.

    Brynn and Kinsey spent summer camp together throughout most of their childhoods. They were not friends and now as adults, they find themselves roommates. ARC from NetGalley.
