Named One of the Hottest Reads of Summer 2022 by Today ∙ Parade ∙ PopSugar ∙ USA Today ∙ SheReads ∙ BuzzFeed ∙ BookBub ∙ Bustle and more!

Six summers to fall in love. One moment to fall apart. A weekend to get it right.
They say you can never go home again, and for Persephone Fraser, ever since she made the biggest mistake of her life a decade ago, that has felt too true. Instead of glittering summers on the lakeshore of her childhood, she spends them in a stylish apartment in the city, going out with friends, and keeping everyone a safe distance from her heart.

Until she receives the call that sends her racing back to Barry’s Bay and into the orbit of Sam Florek—the man she never thought she’d have to live without.

For six summers, through hazy afternoons on the water and warm summer nights working in his family’s restaurant and curling up together with books—medical textbooks for him and work-in-progress horror short stories for her—Percy and Sam had been inseparable. Eventually that friendship turned into something breathtakingly more, before it fell spectacularly apart.
When Percy returns to the lake for Sam’s mother’s funeral, their connection is as undeniable as it had always been. But until Percy can confront the decisions she made and the years she’s spent punishing herself for them, they’ll never know whether their love might be bigger than the biggest mistakes of their past. 

Told over the course of six years and one weekend, Every Summer After is a big, sweeping nostalgic story of love and the people and choices that mark us forever.

    The chemistry between Sam and Percy is truly undeniable. The way they lost and found each other again was meant to be and a beautiful love story. It’s a bit predictable but honestly in the best ways possible. One of my fav reads ever. Wish I could read this again for the first time.
  • Very cute

    Entertaining and fun summer love. What everyone want’s their first love to be (for the most part 😉) good, and fast read.

    An adult version of The Summer I Turned Pretty. Easy read, but kept you captivated the entire time.
  • Anticipation

    While the book kept me wanting more, wanting to find out what happened, If they’d end up together, I felt like it dragged in a little too long. Worth the read though!

    I have to say for someone on the younger side(minor) this book was everything. And while it was a little spicy it was just the right amount. The CHILDHOOD friends to lovers was just everything on its own level. I could not put this book down, it was a must finish straight from the start. I gave this a 5 star review for its shown of love and second chances. While I wish I got to see every part of there summers when they were only thirteen, I loved that we got to see BOTH past and present sam and percy relationships. I could go on and on about this book, but I just want to say the childhood love made me kick my feet the whole time. Totally worth it and would totally recommend for anyone whole loves a book with maybe 3/5 spice level and 5/5 wholesome. Mind blown. 💗💗💗💗💗
