Summary from Goodreads:


Straight-laced, veterinary surgeon, Summer Wynters is ready to break the rules. And who better to break them with than the most irreverent of all men, mega rock star Malcolm Angel? With one last summer free from work obligations, Summer moves to New York City, and at the coaxing of her friend, pretends to be a model so she can spend one wild night with Malcolm.

Rock star, Malcolm Angel, tortured by a dark past, may be the poet laureate of romance, but he, like science-minded Summer, has never believed in romantic love. How could he? With his history, he doesn’t deserve to be loved.

When Summer’s honesty, kindness, and exuberance for life changes his perspective, the two discover they are in deeper than either dreamed possible. But when Malcolm discovers Summer’s been perpetuating a lie, will he forgive her? Even if forgiveness is possible, can a man immune to love teach someone else to believe in it?

My Review:

Summer of Irreverence is a very sweet read. I loved every page and I loved the characters and their story.  It’s the kind of book that offers distraction and a good time J

Summer is looking for some time for herself before starting her career, before acting like a responsible person.  She did not have in mind any romantic implication on the long term when meeting Malcolm Angel – a rock star with a bad reputation. As any love story, he has a secret of his own. Can a relationship that started based on a lie overcome the differences between the two? Can Malcolm fully trust Summer? Or is she able to understand his past?  You’ll see…

I can say overall that the story was quite ok, maybe a little rushed when Malcolm’s issues were set on the table and probably the characters could have been a little more defined. Other than that, I can’t find anything that I did not like. It’s good we have both sides of the story, even if Malcolm’s thought are not as predominant as summer’s. This goes well with his character and his mysterious angle.

So enjoy the book, it’s quite a nice way to spend some free time. Hope you like it and come back and share your experience !
