Summer Seduction

Book 2, Cruel Summer

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


I wanted revenge. 
And I got it in the best way possible. 

Ray has always driven me insane, now that we’re older, all I want is to make her feel the pain she put me through for four years. 

And then suddenly, everything shifts and I realize I just want her, 
It’s bad enough that I’m the camp director-her boss. 

Our love is equal to our hate for one another and the burning tension between us refuses to relent. If anything its gotten worse. 

I push her. 
She pushes back. 
Passion whether it be born out of love or hate—is a powerful beast, one I’m refusing to tame. 

Marlo and Ray’s story continues…

Second Chance Romance by Rachel Van Dyken
Cruel Summer Series (book 2 of 3) is an iBooks exclusive
This series is more of a trilogy - one story separated into 3 books. The first, Summer Heat, and the second book, Summer Seduction is is out now. The third book, Summer Nights, is set to come out September 27th. This means you won’t be left wanting for long.
I have to preface this review by saying that these stats may change as I read the rest of the series. I feel like I got to know the characters a lot more in this book than the first.
Book Boyfriend: 💋💋💋💋
Marlon or Marlo is a certified beef cake that is really good at performance - acting, singing, dancing, etc. He, unfortunately, lives with a chip on his shoulder. Marlo was adopted and he grew up always thinking he wasn’t good enough or worthy of love because of being abandoned by his birth parents. Marlo and Ray had a special moment in high school but she too, rejected him and made him feel like he wasn’t good enough. He’s always remembered that and strived to prove to himself and others that he was worth it.
Strong Female Lead: 💋💋💋💋
Ray is perfect but looks can be deceiving. On the outside, it looks like she has everything. She is beautiful, smart, talented and her family is wealth. She never wants for anything except love. Her brother died when she was very young and it changed the dynamic of her family. Her parents no longer showed her love. The bought whatever she wanted or didn’t want but never truly showed they cared. They missed many important events in her life which left her feeling unworthy, lonely and rejected. She has to work at performance art because her parents won’t support that life choice. She wants to prove to her parents and herself that she can accomplish the things she wants in life.
Plot: 💋💋💋.5
This book was much better than the first. I felt like I got to know the characters more and what demons they were fighting. I also felt like I saw Marlo and Ray’s connection more… the hate turned to love/hate. I’m still thrown off by the summer camp because some parts of the book don’t make sense to me and how I think of camp. These aspects of the book make me stop and wonder but doesn’t really take away from the storyline which is all about the characters - their back story, their connection, and overcoming their fears. The book does end in a cliffhanger and I about died.
Steamy Factor: 💋💋💋
There were definitely some spicy scenes in this segment. Nothing over the top - true RVD fashion but enough to get your blood pumping.
Overall: 💋💋💋.5
Again, parts of the camp story line and dialogue weren’t what I was hoping for and what I’ve come to expect from her books. I do, however, really like getting to know the characters. This segment does a great job providing insight into why they’ve turned out the way they did and building that connection between each other. I’m all about character development and making connections with them. My biggest need in a book is connection to characters and wanting to root for them. I feel like toward the end of the book I was feeling this way. I am REALLY looking forward to the third and final book and hope the stats go up again.

It gets better and better

The story picks up from where it ended in the first book. This book has more depth and was more of a roller coaster ride . Nevertheless its captivating and keeps the readers fully engrossed in this entertaining journey of Marlo and Ray .
