For these two workplace opposites, attraction caught them by surprise.
Summer Graham’s life is just how she likes it—surrounded by people in both her personal life and in her work life as an admissions recruiter at a university. Want to go on an adventure? She’s your gal. Want a serious relationship? She can probably introduce you to someone who does, but it’s not her.
Brock McMillan spends his time striving for perfection, being a good older brother, and enjoying his job helping students get college scholarships. Oh, and disagreeing with Summer on pretty much everything that goes on in the office.
Not that it’s purposeful. Their ideas are just kind of like their office spaces—Brock’s is minimalist and logical (but Summer will tell you it’s where ideas go to die) and Summer’s is lively, fun, and creative (but Brock will tell you it’s chaotic).
They’re unwillingly teamed up to run Aquamoose Tracks together—the big overnight event put on by the Welcome Center at the university where they both work. And even though the event is literally all fun and games (and, okay, a healthy dose of info), neither of them thinks they’ll survive working together so closely.
And they definitely never expect to fall in love.
Rating: Mild. Mild kissing.
It Started With a Sunset is a wonderful story of a realistic opposites attract that gives you all of the feels. I have never desired to work in an admission office, until this book, and now oh my goodness it makes me rethink my college years (okay not truly, but still). Both Summer and Brock had such polar opposite personalities that both have positives and negatives. I loved how author Meg Easton was able to show their personalities, interest, etc. In ways that made the story even more enjoyable.
This book is a quick read you’ll have a difficult time putting down. So grab a cup of tea, a cozy blanket, and if you’re like me and cry like a baby at happy endings…grab a few tissues haha.
I absolutely recommend this book along with all others by Meg Easton. They are clean, fun, sweet, and have adorable laugh out loud moments that you are sure to see tiny bits of yourself in each character and relate to.
Cute contemporary romance. Both of these characters are strong, and complete opposites. You’d think they could never be a couple but it is a case of opposites attract. And could these two be any more opposite of each other? I don’t think so. Summer is fun, impulsive and not a rule follower. Brock is more somber, maker of lists and a big rule follower. Both of them are capable of finding a happy medium to function in their work but anywhere else in life they are happy in their extremes. I think I am more like Brock than Summer though not quite so extreme. I would go crazy in a close relationship with someone like Summer. Not that I wouldn’t like her but I am too much of a rule follower and would just go nuts. Still, I believed that Brock would be happy with her. She really does have a delightful personality.
I love that Summer’s dad worked so hard to improve his father skills and that he was wise when needed. And I loved the bit of craziness in Brock’s family.
It was an enjoyable read. I look forward to reading Avery’s story.
