It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey Book Summary


Tessa Bailey is back with a Schitt’s Creek-inspired rom-com about a Hollywood “It Girl” who’s cut off from her wealthy family and exiled to a small Pacific Northwest beach town... where she butts heads with a surly, sexy local who thinks she doesn’t belong. 

As seen on E!Online, PopSugar, CNN, EliteDaily, Vulture, Buzzfeed, Bustle, the Nerd Daily, PARADE, LA Magazine, Country Living, USA Today, and more!

Piper Bellinger is fashionable, influential, and her reputation as a wild child means the paparazzi are constantly on her heels. When too much champagne and an out-of-control rooftop party lands Piper in the slammer, her stepfather decides enough is enough. So he cuts her off, and sends Piper and her sister to learn some responsibility running their late father’s dive bar... in Washington.

Piper hasn’t even been in Westport for five minutes when she meets big, bearded sea captain Brendan, who thinks she won’t last a week outside of Beverly Hills. So what if Piper can’t do math, and the idea of sleeping in a shabby apartment with bunk beds gives her hives. How bad could it really be? She’s determined to show her stepfather—and the hot, grumpy local—that she’s more than a pretty face.

Except it’s a small town and everywhere she turns, she bumps into Brendan. The fun-loving socialite and the gruff fisherman are polar opposites, but there’s an undeniable attraction simmering between them. Piper doesn’t want any distractions, especially feelings for a man who sails off into the sunset for weeks at a time. Yet as she reconnects with her past and begins to feel at home in Westport, Piper starts to wonder if the cold, glamorous life she knew is what she truly wants. LA is calling her name, but Brendan—and this town full of memories—may have already caught her heart.

Great first book of Duology…I think that’s the word for a two book series lolIt was good. I really enjoyed this one. Felt like their romance gradually deepened. Main girl Piper was alright. I think I got annoyed at Hollywood lifestyle and behavior but she grew on me throughout the book. Brendan is hot but I felt he was lacking. Really grumpy to Piper’s sunshine. But he was fine overall. I gave it 4 stars out of 5..Score: 4/5

Such an AMAZING raw love story!This has been one of my favorite books I’ve read! I actually finished it and then read it again it was so good. I can not wait for the second book to come out to find out about Hannah’s story ☺️.Score: 5/5

Favorite read of 2021 so far!Hysterical, steamy, and heartfelt enemies to lovers. I was hooked from the very start, and the chemistry between Piper and Brendan was off the charts! I really loved the character development and how both Piper and Brendan grew on their own and together through the book. Highly recommend this one! *I was sent an ARC prior to release in exchange for my honest review..Score: 5/5

Just So GoodThat’s the whole review. It was just SO good..Score: 5/5

👍 Excellent!I can’t say enough good things about this book. Sweet, funny, hot, sentimental, witty and romantic are just a few of the adjectives I would use to describe it. The storyline (a seemingly spoiled and shallow socialite is forced to spend three months in the hometown of her long deceased father, and she finds love there while discovering herself) is heads above what is typically found in this genre. All of the main and supporting characters are uniformly interesting and capture our hearts. Tessa Bailey, keep writing them like this..Score: 5/5

I couldn’t put it down!This book is literally so amazing! It was almost as if I was reading a dirty Hallmark😂 But seriously, I read this book all in one day and I will probably do it many more times. It kept my attention, my emotions, and my heart for the short few hours it was in my hand. You won’t regret reading this!.Score: 4/5

Growly hero!This book was such a surprise for me. I admit to judging the first couple chapters to be the typical enemies to lovers trope. I've read so many lately that sometimes they just blend into one book. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that while it started out that way, there was nothing typical about Piper and Brendan. It didn't take long for these two to stand out and make me love them. For a spoiled rich girl, Piper was extremely likable. I really enjoyed that she wasn't typical for the roll she was slated too. Yes she had a superficial lifestyle, but when she was put the to the test, she excelled better than I would have. She had spunk. She was kind. She drew strangers and made them feel special. She's exactly the kind of heroine I can root for. Brendan started out very growly, gruff, and even rude at first. And I loved every bit of his fall to Piper. The moment he decided he wasn't going to fight it, she didn't have a chance. No woman would. I adored how he pursued her. These two shouldn't have fit so well but they were perfect for each other. This is one of those books that had me smiling so big when I finished it. I really enjoyed it and I hope the sisters book will be just as good..Score: 5/5

PerfectionIm literally left with a giant gaping hole in my heart. I finished this and hook line and sinker in two days. I feel empty, and I NEED more. These were hands down the best books ive ever read. I could fully read them every day for the rest of my life. Ten out of Ten..Score: 5/5
