    One thought on “Catching Summer”

    1. Title: Catching SummerSeries:Second Chances #6 Author: L.P. DoverRelease date:April 5, 2016Cliffhanger: NoHEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]This is one of those books that looked like a decent read, something easy to pass the time. I suppose it fulfilled those expectations, however I didn't really connect to the writing in the way that I was hoping. The storyline itself was a lot like many others I've read so in that way I found it hard to become invested or interested in the characters. I wa [...]

    2. 3.5 starsI do love a good sports romance and one with some angst, so when I read the blurb for Catching Summer it had read me written all over it. And not only have I discovered a new author in L.P Dover, but I discovered an enjoyable story encompassing love, loss, discovery and suspense.Summer's husband was murdered in front of her, and though time has moved on and she's beginning to see parts of her return that she thought had died along with Austin, she still doubts she can ever open her hear [...]

    3. 3.5 starsCatching Summer was a good read. I enjoyed watching the relationship develop between Evan and summer, they had great chemistry and both were likable/entertaining characters.Some of the drama I didn't care for but it didn't take away from my overall enjoyment. Overall a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon, I highly recommend this book. Thank you Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept via NetGalley for the advance copy.

    4. Catching Summer by LP Dover is the sixth entry in the Second Chances Series and it was absolutely fabulous. Sometimes, the contemporary romance genre can become saturated with so many similar works and the reader starts to expect the predictability. Though I started the series at book six I quickly caught on to who was who and once I started reading, I absolutely did not want to put it down. Of course the book was romantic but it was those other suspenseful elements that made the story hard to p [...]

    5. Honestly, it took me a while to get into this book. The first 64% was kind of boring and pretty standard so I wasn't really feeling it to be honest. At 65% it got interesting. That event seemed to change the book altogether. It honestly read like an entirely different novel. The latter part I enjoyed. Summer experienced tragedy. Evan liked her but was cautious and conscientious of her situation, waiting for the right time. That time comes and we get to see it all play out. I found Evan to be thi [...]

    6. Watching her husband lose his life in front of her, and not being able to do anything about it completely devastated Summer Jacobs and left her permanently scarred and doubtful that she would ever experience love again. Going through all that pain left her a shell of the woman she use to be, but after some much needed therapy and support from her family she started to see glimpses of her old stuff return. With her life somewhat returning to normal, she decides to open a restaurant with her husba [...]

    7. Published:April 5, 2016 Genre:Contemporary Romance (Sports & Suspense):: 4.5 Pretty Little Stars :: I really loved this novel. In all honesty, I have been skirting around it for awhile because I am not too familiar with the author and, after trying to read like 5 books, I finally decided to give this one a chance. Woah. I am so glad I did! It's a great mix of emotions, angst, sweetness, and suspense. It's also a love after loss novel (which always tugs at my heart). I loved the characters, I [...]

    8. There's not much I can really say about this, I couldn't connect to the writing or the characters.mething just felt off for me but I'm not sure why. I think the chemistry between Summer and Evan felt forced, and I thought a lot of the action parts were ridiculously dramatic. I haven't read any of the others in this series so maybe I'm better starting from book 1 because there was a ton of side characters that I felt disconnected from because I didn't know their full storyAn arc was provided via [...]

    9. In the prologue we learn that our heroine, Summer, has suffered through a horrifying tragedy that some may never have recovered from. Her husband, Austin, is killed right in front of her and while her tormentors have her blindfolded she can hear his every bone breaking and his pleas to make these ruthless men let his wife go. Two years later Summer is still having nightmares despite being treated by Dr. Philip Parker. She has come a long way though and is moving on with her life through her work [...]

    10. ***3.5 Stars***I try very hard to not pick up a book in the middle of a series, even when it has been noted that said book can be read as a standalone, but sometimes the blurb to a book just causes a spike in my curiosity and I just have to go for it and that’s exactly what happened with Catching Summer. It is the sixth book in the Second Chances series, but I didn’t feel as if I was missing out on anything by not reading the previous books in the series, and I found it to be a sweet, sexy a [...]

    11. I enjoy a book that involves a different twist than what you normally see in a romance novel. This one involves some dark activities and a little bit of suspense.I was a little worried when this book started out. I was actually somewhat taken aback with the darkness and in-depth description of a murder. Where I can understand the author setting it up the plot, some of the description is a bit harsh for a romance.However, the first part of the book was the best part of the book in my opinion. Whi [...]

    12. This was a sweet friends to lovers story that has the makings of a great Hallmark channel movie (just enough angst). Summer's husband was killed in an underground MMA fight two years ago and it left her in a very bad place emotionally, her sister never thought she would recover from Austin's death especially since she had witnessed it. Since his passing Summer opened a restaurant, it was something he had always dreamed of doing it and it was a way to keep his memory alive. With the help of her s [...]

    13. Catching Summer is a wonderful second chance romance and it follows the story of Summer and Evan. For the past two years, Summer has been desperately trying to get her life back after tragically loosing her husband. Her loss has been a tough one, one that invades her dreams and has completely consumed her. But, now 2 years later, Summer has picked herself up and is living her life the way her husband would have wanted. And although the thought of moving on terrifies her, she knows that her husba [...]

    14. ***ARC Provided by the Publisher and NetGalley***I wanted to like this one more than I did. The story was good, for the most part, and held my mild curiosity (hence the 2 stars which may be more than it actually deserves). The characters had potential, but unfortunately, there were some issues both with the plot and the actual construction of the novel that kept me from being able to fully engage.1. The dialog- it was stiff and unnatural and I could not see real people making the statements. The [...]

    15. WARNING: You must have plenty of tissues—no, strike that—just grab a bucket to hang your head in and let the ugly cry pour, because L.P. Dover is going to totally rip your heart out and then shred it to pieces. The prologue had me crying big ugly tears. At least Dover just rips the Band-Aid right off at the beginning with Summer and her husband Austin, so for that, I guess I’m thankful. But Dover did put my heart back together with sexy, gorgeous NFL football player, Evan Townsend, comes i [...]

    16. *ARC received from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*This was a tear jerker, for sure. The beginning sucks you in and keeps you therewaiting. Waiting for the break down and waiting for the happily ever after. Just when you have it figured out, there's another twist. And then another. Argh!Summer had a horrible past. A past that brought nightmares, memories-both good and bad, guilt and anger that she needed to work through. How could she ever move on with her life after som [...]

    17. Catching Summer is the sixth book in L.P. Dover's Second Chance series. Each book can be read as a standalone. This is also the first book I've read by this author and I will definitely read more!Summer Jacobs is just beginning to think that she can move past the trauma of losing her husband and the violence around his death. With the help of those close to her, Summer has been able to build a successful restaurant with her sister and brother-in-law. She also wants to keep her nursing certificat [...]

    18. Original review can be found at kristineandterri/22.5 stars** I received an advanced readers copy from Random House- Loveswept via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**Catching Summer is the 6th book in the Second Chances series. It can be read as a stand alone as each book is about different characters.I felt a little disconnected from this story and I'm not really sure why. Perhaps it was because I didn't read the books that came before it and I wasn't familiar with the seco [...]

    19. Received from Netgalley. There will be spoilers. Don't read if you don't want to know. I really wanted to like this book. And there were things I did like. I liked Summer, and I liked that a lot of the soapy sorts of plot turns didn't go down the cliche roads. Evan was a good guy. But. I didn't feel Summer's and Evan's chemistry. Their sex was described as fucking half the time and just didn't feel like they really cared. I mean, they said it, but for me, it didn't come across. I didn't buy a lo [...]

    20. **Copy provided by author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**I started this book without having read any of the rest of the series. I realized about halfway through that it actually was in a series, but that they could each be read as standalones.I liked the whole of this book. I liked the characters, even though some of it was over the top dramatic, it was still well written. The heartache that Summer went through and is still experiencing during the book were awful, and sad (yes, [...]

    21. 3 stars. It showed promise but there was no chemistry between Summer and Evan. Absolutely none. Plus, when she finally does fall in love with Evan she is quick to tell her sister than maybe what she felt for her dead husband wasn't true love. That her feelings for Evan are so much deeper. Or something to that effect. What??? That is just a no-no. She came across as insensitive and insecure after that. Another thing, she really made poor Evan work for it. Anyway, I liked Evan and this book probab [...]

    22. What a heart wrenching story of a terrible, heinous crime, that you survived. But now need to learn how to live. Now add in a very patient, sexy, specimen, who only has eyes set on you. Throw in a whole bunch of craziness and friends, and it's hard to put this story down. Will the new life you want to try to lead prevail?Read this story to find out.

    23. Love this author! Love how she brings in characters from previous series to her new books. Makes me happy as a reader to catch up and see them again. Balanced amount of suspense and romance in this one. Great job!*ARC received via Netgalley for an honest review

    24. Link: collectorofbookboyfriends/Only one fact can describe accurately my experience and feelings about this book without needing many words: I finished Catching Summer in less than 10 hours.It sounds crazy, right? Ha! Tell me about it! But this is how it took place. I started reading around 2pm and when I finished it and looked at the clock it was around 10:30pm. Honestly, I did a double take because I hadn’t even realized how sucked-deep in the story I was and how fast the time went away. But [...]

    26. Catching Summer is my third read from L.P. Dover and I have to say each book makes me love her storytelling more and more! This is part of her Second Chances series, which are all interconnected standalones. I love this type of series because you can jump in and read any of the books and still feel like you aren't missing things. Plus a second chance romance is one of my absolute favorite types of reads! I have to say I LOVED this story!! Evan and Summer were magical and sweet and I adored them! [...]

    27. I have really loved this series and was looking forward to Summer's story but this really disappointed me. My heart connected with Summer and her pain but I just felt there was something missing in the relationship between her and Evan. And even though they do talk about Austin, I felt as though that despite the fact Summer states she opens up to Evan she never discussed what she went through, not just Austin's death, with Evan. That is a pretty traumatic event that other than the very beginning [...]

    28. It is hard to move on with life after losing someone you love but witnessing their death is even worse.Summer is doing what she can to survive. With the help of her twin sister, her brother in law and her therapist, she is slowly coming out of the darkness. Taking a break in her nursing career, she paid tribute to her late husband by opening a restaurant, one that is successful. It was a dream of his and she made that dream a reality. Her good friend Kate is getting ready to go on maternity leav [...]
