THE SUMMER OF NO ATTACHMENTS is a wonderful read that will pull you in from the very first page and never let you go. Lori Foster grabs the reader by the heart strings and reminds us all that you never really knows what goes on behind closed doors. Once I started reading, it was very hard to stop. I was flipping the pages like a woman on a mission. I had to know what was going to happen to these women! I can’t believe I’ve never read Lori Foster before! If you need a cute summer read as a pick me up then THE SUMMER OF NO ATTACHMENTS is a good one to read! This has a couple of my favorite tropes: single dad and small town romance.

THE SUMMER OF NO ATTACHMENTS starts with a heck of a hook! THE SUMMER OF NO ATTACHMENTS is a charming book with a very sweet love story between Ivey and Corbin. It was primary, but there was also a love interest for Hope in Corbin’s brother, Lang. Hope and Ivey are great friends. They support each other and even are able to give a push to each other when needed. I like that both of them end up in a relationship at the same time. It allows them time to chat and work through issues. Ivey and Corbin are great characters, as are Hope and Lang, but young Justin completely steals the show! He is delightful. 

If you are in a reading slump, THE SUMMER OF NO ATTACHMENTS will pull you right out! My emotions were all over the place and I had a very hard time liking one of the characters. He is very selfish and behaves like an idiot most of the time. THE SUMMER OF NO ATTACHMENTS is insanely good! More like a train wreck where you know that looking at it isn’t going to be good but you can’t tear your eyes away! I love romances that aren’t just about the relationship between the main characters but also the relationships between family and friends.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Harlequin through Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.


Summer flings with no strings mean nobody gets hurt.
At least, that was the plan…

After putting the brakes on her dead-end relationship, local veterinarian Ivey Anders is ready to soak up this summer on her own terms. The way she sees it, no dating means no disappointment. Why complicate life with anything long-term? But when she meets Corbin Meyer—and his troubled young son, Justin—Ivey’s no-strings strategy threatens to unravel before she can put it into practice.

Trust doesn’t come easy for Ivey’s best friend, Hope Mage, a veterinary-clinic assistant who’s affected by an incident that’s colored every relationship she’s had. Though Hope’s happy for Ivey, she can’t quite open her own heart to the possibility of love. Not just yet… Maybe not ever. Soon, however, she’s faced with a dilemma—Corbin’s older brother, Lang. He’s charming, he’s kind…and he may just be the reason Hope needs to finally tear down her walls.

And as the sweet summer months unspool, the two friends discover love won’t give up on them so easily.
