All they have in common is that they’re less than perfect. And all they’re looking for is the perfect distraction.

Kate’s dream boyfriend has just broken up with her and she’s still reeling from her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. Aidan planned on being a lifer in the army and went to Afghanistan straight out of high school. Now he’s a disabled young veteran struggling to embrace his new life. When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get attached. But could they be right for each other after all?


Some people might find it disturbing but I actually find it funny (okay I’m also disturbed by it) that nothing about the title or the cover of this book – as in nothing– about it connects with the story itself. The cover was pretty and it was eye-catching but it doesn’t really match the story. Also, the title and please correct me if I’m wrong there is not a summer part there right? I don’t actually know what happened.

A diabetic girl heroine and a crippled army veteran.
They are both dealing with things that can affect them forever.

Kate and Aidan used each other to forget their incapability and problems. It was an okay story tackling the story of two people struggling with things that will be forever etched on their lives. It was nice seeing them interacting with one another and getting to know each other. They’re both okay but I can’t actually think of things to say more about them because the story was okay however I find nothing too significant about it. I’m a firm believer of ’Happily Ever Afters’ and stuffs similar to that but this story gave me an insight that not everything that is “forever” is a good thing.
