Fantastic!!!! I coud not put this book down once I picked it up. Yet another must read by Jennifer Echols. I loved Adam in this book. Could not get enough I hope there is a 3rd book to this (first one was the boys next door). I would love to read more about Adam & Lori!!!

This bind-up edition contains THE BOYS NEXT DOOR and its long-awaited sequel, ENDLESS SUMMER.

In THE BOYS NEXT DOOR, Lori will do anything to get Sean, one of the three brothers next door, to notice her. Lori's plan? To date Sean's twin brother, Adam, and get him JEALOUS! Wakeboarding moves, mixed emotions, and a few bryozoa later, Lori discovers that she might be pining for the wrong person!

(SPOILER ALERT! For those who have yet to read THE BOYS NEXT DOOR, do not read the following...)

ENDLESS SUMMER continues where we last left Lori and Adam. Lori has finally figured out that Adam is the right one for her ever since she was a little kid, literally, and that he always had a crush on her.

Happily together, their dating was bound to hit a rough patch, and that patch just happened to be Lori's dad. Although you can't blame him, as Lori and Adam accidentally fell asleep in Adam's truck. This incident not only caused Lori to miss her curfew but also gave her dad the chance to embed it in his mind that something else might have happened between the couple.

Unfortunately, countless of pleas and explanations only lead to Lori's dad forbidding her to see Adam. However, staying away from each other is not as easy as it sounds, especially since they work together. If Adam doesn't stay away from Lori though, it's off to military school.

With the right opportunity, Lori is given another chance to strike up a horrible plan - date guys way worse than Adam - so that her dad will see that Adam just isn't so bad. From bad boys to brothers, Lori is taking all the chances she can to get Adam back as her boyfriend, even if it ends up making Adam jealous. Will Lori's plan work, or will it just tear apart their relationship?

Told in alternate narrations, ENDLESS SUMMER does not disappoint. Lori and Adam will join the ranks of the greatest couples in history (including Ross & Rachel). The love they have for one another is just so palpable that readers will cheer them on in hopes that they end up together once again.

Jennifer Echols does a fantastic job writing through the minds of two teens (which is the scariest place to be). Lori continues to be that strong-willed character, with ideas that aren't the greatest, and Adam the loveable boy next door, who knew one day he would get the girl of his dreams.
