Never say never. Especially not to a determined bad boy.
Zander Minelli is exactly the wrong kind of man. He’s dark, dangerous, and knows far too much about sawed-off shotguns.
Faith Davidson finds him irresistible. The widowed single mother knows she should dip her toe back in the dating pool with someone solid and dependable. Definitely no tattoos. But every time she looks up, the brooding soldier is watching her, and she can’t help but wonder what it would be like to let herself have a taste…
Small town summer nights have never been hotter—and one transplanted city-girl’s heart has never been more fragile.

Standard Zoe York with a little bit more edge.
Zoe York is known for signature stories that are sensitive, passionate and emotion charged. All of those words describe Love On a Summer Night. This novel is standard Zoe York with a little bit more edge. Zander is more tense, moody and has a lot more baggage than the average hero in one of Ms. York's reads. The twists and turns he has traveled may have something to do with that. The heroine Faith is a nurturer that is floundering and trying to find a new direction. I received an ARC of Love on A Summer Night in exchange for an honest review. It surprised me how well this couple worked. So different but so perfect for each other. Zander provided Faith with the courage to give love another try and Faith gave Zander the guidance, protection and understanding he needed to get past his tumultuous memories. Shouldn't have worked but it somehow did.
Love me some Zander
Love on a Summer Night is Zander's much anticipated story and the author doesn't disappoint. I wasn't sure what to expect from Zander when we were teased with him previously, but he's not what you'd expect from a leather-clad motorcycle-riding soldier. And that's what Faith discovers quickly as well. She forms an early opinion of him and spends the rest of the story trying to reconcile her heart and her mind regarding Zander.
Zander is just, well, I'm not sure how to describe Zander except to say "I want me one". He's an alpha hero but extremely sensitive, patient, and understanding. He's incredibly sexy and confident and knows what he wants and makes no bones about it. But he understands where Faith is coming from with her perceptions and ideas of love and relationships and is patient with her, but makes his intentions known. He's great with Faith's son and sensitive to not usurping Faith's relationship with her son as his develops.
Love on a Summer Night is well written and well paced. The relationship between Zander and Faith is well developed and very realistic and the intimacy scenes are well written and very sexy. A great addition to the Pine Harbour series. You don't need to have read the previous books in order to enjoy Love on a Summer Night, but you'll want to read them because they are all equally fantastic.
I definitely think every woman needs a Zander in her life. All tatted up, motorcycle riding bad boy on the outside. Heart of gold, kind, loving, and a hell of a cook on the outside. *sigh*
Zander's been out of Pine Harbour for a while, but he's ready to say goodbye to military life and settle down in his hometown. Just 6 months to go, but now he's home for a two week visit and to try and figure out what he wants to do with the rest of his life. Meeting someone as wonderful as Faith was never in the plan but now that he has, any future without her seems unbearable.
Faith had her one love but he's gone now, so she devotes her time to her young son and mother. Dating isn't something she's ready for. Well until Zander happens. But he's all wrong for her. At least she thinks so.....right??
This is a wonderful love story. One that proves that the heart wants what the heart wants regardless of what the brain says. I definitely recommend this one.
