Blog Tour: My POV Last Summer by Rebecca A. Rogers

Paperback
Expected publication: July 20th 2012 
All Chloe wants to do is get through the summer with her parents. Her life has been in disarray for more than six months, and she knows the only reason her parents made one final trip to Sandy Shores is because of her. They are, after all, two seconds away from filing for divorce. When Chloe stumbles upon a boy in one of her childhood hangouts, she’s in for more than just a relaxing summer vacation.

Logan is exhausted, famished and, quite frankly, kaput. His parents kicked him out when he refused to attend a rehabilitation program for his drug addiction. Now, he wishes he would’ve listened; he’d be receiving appropriate medical care rather than living in a dingy, godforsaken shack, holing up from money-hungry drug dealers.

Logan’s godsend arrives in the form of Chloe, who can’t hold her tongue when it comes to matters of the heart. They’re both in for a rude awakening when Logan’s past catches up to them, though. Can they escape the drug dealers showing up at every twist and turn, or will things end much worse than they ever imagined?

My POV
This book deals with real life complicated issues and that is one thing I can never get enough of. Edgy, dramatic, and passionate are three words I would use to describe this book.

In Last Summer you get to see a powerful story through the eyes of Chloe Sullivan and Logan Andrews. Chloe is young woman who is spending her last summer at her fathers lake house with her parent who are essentially at the end of their relationship. On one of her runs she finds Logan in an abandoned cottage that she use to play in when she was younger. Logan is a young man on the run from his suppliers and is not wanted at home in his condition. It seems these two find each other right when they need someone the most.

One needs something to look forward to and the other needs a way out. While working together a passionate and caring relationships brews between them. One full of hope of a better future and determination to over coming mistakes. 

I have to say that the writing could be a little better but I definitely connected with the story and it's characters. If you are looking for something a little different and edgier you may want to pick this one up.
