About this deal

As all fans of Abby know, we can count on her books for A+ banter and comedic relief and JFTS absolutely delivers in this regard.

She NEVER complained about Emma's selfishness; she was fiercely protective, patient, and endlessly selfless. Just One Summer is a 2012 Filipino romance- drama film directed by Mac Alejandre, starring Julie Anne San Jose and Elmo Magalona. Abby’s mental health representation is so wonderful and I’m happy to see that made another appearance here.

This pulled at my heart strings in all the right ways with the most wholesome dynamic between Emma and Justin woven into themes of family wounds and healing past traumas. An English teacher bumps into her childhood sweetheart, who is still as handsome and charming as ever. You never know what you're gonna get when you open an Abby Jimenez book, but you will always be smiling regardless. I honestly didn't give AF about the romance, I was on edge the entire time waiting to see how the dynamic between Emma and her ain't shit womb donor (mom) shook out. The chemistry between the two main characters is undeniable, and the teasing/banter will make you sweat.

the romance made me all giddy and I legit felt like I was falling in love alongside Emma and Justin, while the second half of the book literally ripped my heart out of my chest and I cried so hard I was shaking.Justin and Emma were such relatable characters and it was exciting and easy to watch their relationship unfold. Emma needed to work on herself and I was beyond proud of her for realizing that she’d only become the person she hated the most (Amber) to Justin’s siblings if she stayed. This is a delightful read filled with passion, resilience, and unexpected turns that keep the reader engaged until the last page. I think this is her most tender piece of writing to date - the emotions will have you wound tight in a way that makes it impossible to put the book down. Thank you to NetGalley, Abby Jimenez and Forever Publishing for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.
