The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry Review

Hey guys, Sammi here!

I was provided a novel by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. (I feel much more professional when I say this.)

That novel was:

I just love pretty covers *swoons* Here is the synopsis:

All they have in common is that they're less than perfect. And all they're looking for is the perfect distraction.

Kate's dream boyfriend has just broken up with her and she's still reeling from her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes.  Aidan planned on being a lifer in the army and went to Afghanistan straight out of high school. Now he's a disabled young veteran struggling to embrace his new life. When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get  attached. But could they be right for each other after all?

I really enjoyed this novel! It was cute and gave me feels! I really felt for both characters immensely. But I think I fell in love with Aidan.

Aidan was so real to me. I could picture his struggles with one arm and I empithized with his feelings of helplessness. 

Kate was a very good character, but frustrating at times. Her denial of her disease had me wanting to wring her neck at some moments. I was glad she finally got some sense knocked into her at the end. 

The plot and the characters self discoveries were well played out and well written. The romance might have moved a bit too fast for me, but overall it was cute and heart warming.

I went into this book already thinking I'd like it, because I loved the novel Something Like Normal by Trish Doller. Something about soldiers after the war novels really get to me.

Overall I really enjoyed this novel and give it 5/5 stars.

Thanks for reading!

Ta-Ta for now!
