Title: It Happened One Summer
Series: Bellinger Sisters #1
Author: Tessa Bailey
Piper Bellinger is fashionable, influential, and her reputation as a wild child means the paparazzi are constantly on her heels. When too much champagne and an out-of-control rooftop party lands Piper in the slammer, her stepfather decides enough is enough. So he cuts her off, and sends Piper and her sister to learn some responsibility running their late father’s dive bar… in Washington.
Piper hasn’t even been in Westport for five minutes when she meets big, bearded sea captain Brendan, who thinks she won’t last a week outside of Beverly Hills. So what if Piper can’t do math, and the idea of sleeping in a shabby apartment with bunk beds gives her hives. How bad could it really be? She’s determined to show her stepfather—and the hot, grumpy local—that she’s more than a pretty face.
Except it’s a small town and everywhere she turns, she bumps into Brendan. The fun-loving socialite and the gruff fisherman are polar opposites, but there’s an undeniable attraction simmering between them. Piper doesn’t want any distractions, especially feelings for a man who sails off into the sunset for weeks at a time. Yet as she reconnects with her past and begins to feel at home in Westport, Piper starts to wonder if the cold, glamorous life she knew is what she truly wants. LA is calling her name, but Brendan—and this town full of memories—may have already caught her heart.
It’s not often I get this hooked into a book and devour it but I did with this book!
Oh I absolutely loved this!!!!!
After making a monumental mistake, Piper’s stepdad sends her off to her deceased dad’s fisherman town and bar to sort herself out and her sister, Hannah, tags along too.
There she finds a dilapidated bar and apartment and bumps into fisherman, Brendan, who has lived in small town, Westport forever.
Piper is so sweet, I loved her and Brendan is a man I want to know!!!!!!
How their relationshop developed, their chemistry, the tension, their quiet banter made my heart bloom!
