Elise Philippe was the chef and Snow Crystal and loved her job. She also loved the family that had taken her in, saved her from her past. Elise thought she was safe but she will be wrong as a one night stand will turn to more and that will have her scared.
Sean O’Neil did not do relationships. His job was his life and that was how he liked it. Sean will find himself being dragged back home when his grandfather falls ill. Though this time Sean will not find the task too difficult especially with Elise near.
Suddenly Last Summer is the second book to the series O’Neil Brothers by Sarah Morgan. I really liked this novel.
Elise I really loved. She was a character who lived life, had passion but behind those smiles was a very scared and damaged young woman. I hated what had happened to her and how it was effecting her still. I liked that she was able to live again with Sean as he tried to get past her barriers. Then there is Sean who was mister unavailable all the time. I liked how he started to change to be a man who cared for more than just his job.
Its funny with how the novel starts off with Elise and Sean are so alike with their personalities, both having a relationship phobia. They were the perfect couple as things were kept light and without complications, but then something changed and feelings started to intrude upon them. And I liked that Sarah Morgan did change them but it was not an overnight change, it was very much a gradual change.
The other characters of this O’Neil family were great. I loved the stubborn grandfather, Walter. All he wanted was the best for his family but he just couldn’t express his feelings that well.
I can’t wait to read about Tyler in the third and final book, which I will be reading next.
