The Summer He Came Home - Juliana Stone
Maggie O'Rourke
Cain Black

Michael O'Rourke, Raine Edwards, Jake Edwards, Mackenzie "Mac" Draper


A very good start to a new series. I'm emotionally invested in all these characters and while I was interested in Cain and Maggie's story what I really what to know are the demons that plague Jake and Mac. While Cain and Maggie were really likable and had chemistry off the charts Cain seemed like the less conflicted character in the book. Though in retrospect not knowing where your career is going and how to get the woman you love to trust you are not exactly small tasks. Maggie's back story was intense yet predictable once it was fully flushed out. But even that didn't detract from me wanting to finish the book. I think a good word to describe this book overall would be Intense. The characters were strong and so are their bonds. I can't wait to see what else Crystal Lake has in store for us in the future. 4 Stars
