Description

Ashtyn Moretti is ready for the best summer of her life. But her parents have other plans when they drop the bomb that her perfect summer will be spent…

Away from home.

Away from friends.

Away from half her family.

Armed with her Summer from Hell playlist and a Kindle full of book boyfriends, Ashtyn prepares to face what she is sure will be the worst summer of her life. Or will it be?

Flynn James has one thing on his mind—the success of his band Marlowe. He’s focused and doesn’t have time for any distractions, and that includes facing his past. But then a petite brunette comes walking into the pub where he works.

Neither Ashtyn or Flynn were looking for love but they can’t deny their obvious attraction. Ashtyn’s summer has been full of lies. The last thing she expects is for Flynn to be one of the liars too. Can she forgive his lies and turn her summer around? Can Flynn keep his secrets without losing everything? Or will this really be the Summer from Hell?

Review

Summer love mixed with lies -

Finding Flynn is a brisk introduction to debut author, Alexandria Bishop's, Marlowe series. I rarely read young adult these days, but I've been anticipating this book for awhile. Some of the pop culture references were unfamiliar, entirely my fault. Other than, the overdramatized 'secret' I enjoyed the story; I felt let down by the BIG reveal. Not sure what the author has planned for the rest of the band, but I am looking forward to finding out.
