Today I’m going to be talking about my most anticipated summer releases for 2017.
Lucky in Love by Kasie West - July 25
This first book I’m going to talk about is Lucky in Love by Kasie West. Her books are cute fluffy reads that I need when I am in a reading slump. I recommend reading her books to get you out of a slump. I love reading contemporary in the summer so it is perfect timing.

All Cassie wants is to get some solid ground under her feet following the shock of her parents' divorce so when she learns of her mom's plans to take Cassie and her brother, Drew, on a four-month sailing trip from Oregon to Mexico, she's stunned. There is absolutely nothing solid about the Pacific Ocean. Cassie is furious and nervous. It's been hard enough keeping Drew sheltered from what Cassie knows about her mother's role in breaking their family apart but living in such close quarters threatens to push her anger past its tipping point. Enter Jonah, a whip-smart deckhand who's as gorgeous as he is flirtatious. Cassie tries to keep him at a distance but the more time they spend together--wandering San Francisco, riding beachside roller coasters, and exploring the California coastline--the harder it is to fight the attraction. Cassie wants to let herself go but her parents' split has left her feeling adrift in a sea of questions she can't even begin to answer. Can she forgive her mom? Will home ever feel the same? Should she take a chance on Jonah? With life's unpredictable tides working against her, Cassie must decide whether to swim against them or dive right in.

But when a stranger sweeps in and knocks the world off-kilter for everyone in town, Sadie begins to think there might be more to life than being Roy’s wife.
