Summer He Came Home (Bad Boys of Crystal lake #1) by Juliana Stone Contemporary Romance April 2, 1013 Sourcebooks
Favorite Quote: “We were kings back then and didn’t even know it. We had no responsibility and the world at our feet.”
Cain Black, one of the original bad boys of Crystal Lake, shocked the town when he turned down a full ride football scholarship to college in order to chase his dreams of rock and roll stardom. Now, ten years later, he’s come back home to attend the funeral of a good friend. Fame and fortune has shined brightly on him but he finds himself at a crossroad-ready for something different in life. When he meets Maggie O’Rourke, he feels like he has finally come home.
Single mother Maggie O’Rourke came to Crystal Lake to start over and found a town more than willingly to embrace her and her son. Financially broke with a battered heart and a dark secret, love is not a luxury she can afford right now but Cain Black pushes all her buttons and she soon finds herself swept up in his orbit. While she enjoys the ride, she can’t help but wonder what’s going to happen when Cain goes back to the hot lights and even hotter women of L.A.
As Cain and Maggie find themselves falling deeper into a relationship they never planned on having, they both learn that fate has a way of giving us what we need when we least expect it.
Juliana Stone’s TheSummer He Came Home is a sensual romantic contemporary set in the small town of Crystal Lake. Part of a trilogy that follows the lives four childhood friends. I will admit, while reading this, I kept hearing the theme song from the Jason movies. Humor and angst run side by side as we slip effortlessly into the lives of these residents and the stories they have to tell us. While there are multiple story lines running abound, the main attraction is Cain Black and Maggie O’Rourke.
