Summer is left to care for sisters, Amber and Raven when their mother suddenly leaves. She must find a better means of support even if it means accepting a marriage proposal.
Alex McAllister does not believe in love, only business. Unfortunately his grandmother, Virginia wants grandchildren. Turning the cards, he looks for the unsuitable bride.
Summer always puts her sister’s needs before hers. It is a hard life often living inside their car or cheap apartments on such limited income. After she has a vehicle run-in with Alex, he offers her a promising compromise that could benefit her sisters. Virginia Elaine McAllister runs McAllister Enterprises. After the deaths of her husband, her son, and son’s wife, she suddenly became aggressive and head CEO of the company, as well as an instant mother to Alex, who was only three at the time. Virginia thinks Alex takes life for granted, not appreciating anything. She informs him he has one month to marry or she will sell the company to strangers. Alex believes running into Summer is the perfect solution to his problem. Of course neither realized they would find a rare family love.
From the moment I started reading Summer’s Love, I fell in love with the spirited characters. Summer and her sisters have been cast a hard life and know too well the real value of love and appreciation of the littlest things. Alex lost his family when he was young and really does not remember any family closeness even though his grandmother raised him. Newcomer Natasha Usher paints a very moving read that reaches into the reader’s heart. I was hooked from page one until the end and deeply moved by this extraordinary story that really delivers a superb read! The splendid characters really make this one worthwhile read.
