Top Ten Tuesday… Books that Give Off Summer Vibes

Top Ten Books that Give Off Summer Vibes

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to
bring bookish friends together.


This is probably going to see me trawl through my contemporary romance reads, since dark romance and sci-fi doesn’t lend itself to the topic that well. I’m looking for books with blue skies, wide open plains, heat, beaches, lakes or the ocean.

Title – Darcy Comes First For A Change (Life is a Beach)
Author – Lilliana Anderson
Genre – Romantic Comedy/ Contemporary Romance
Goodreads – https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/52509134-darcy-comes-first-for-a-change

As he presses a sweet, tender kiss to my lips, my tears fall harder as I wonder if we can survive this when this already feels like dying. It’s one thing to say you’ll wait for someone. It’s another to actually do it. My father didn’t stick around. My husband didn’t stick around or even fight for us. And Leo? He could have any woman he wants, why wait an indefinite amount of time for me?

Title – Fool’s Paradise (Cartwright Brothers #5)
Author – Lilliana Anderson

“I want my soul back.”
There was such utter desolation in his expression that it took every morsel of strength within me not to cry.
This man bleeds goodness. Alongside his misery.

So I sadly don’t have a quote for this one. My bad because this was just such a wonderful second-chance romance with ALL the feels and the most swoon worthy hero!

Title – Big Sky

She wanted him. She wanted to live out every filthy fantasy she’d ever had with him, but she couldn’t get past he fact that she hadn’t come here freely.

Title – Her Montana Master

Again I have no quote and no idea, given I live in the UK, what the weather in Montana is like. However the cover makes me think of hot summer days”

  1. Darcy comes first and Cupid’s Anonymous look like fun reads! I’m currently in the Southern Hem so it’s winter and I’m keen to read all the summery-vibes books I can get my hands on 🙂 I hadn’t heard of these books so thanks for sharing them Lousie!
