Summary

Ashleigh McAllister’s life is a total disaster. Her ex dumped her for a guy, and she can’t seem to stop bumping into them in their suddenly way too small Brooklyn neighborhood. At least Mother Nature is on her side. Summer is here and the forecast is all sun. Ashleigh needs a little excitement, and things get exponentially hotter when Kellan Dwyer walks into her life. 

Fresh out of the army, Kellan is killing time apartment sitting before returning home to a scripted future in Colorado. Her itinerary consists solely of having a blast. 

Ashleigh and Kellan decide friends with benefits is hot, and fun, and sexy as hell, but romance? Terrible idea. 

With the New York City skyline as their backdrop, the summer heats up fast. They just have to keep their feelings in check before someone gets hurt. When opposites attract, can a summer of passion lead to a lifetime of love?

Brilliant

I absolutely loved this book. It is a story of Ash a teacher, who is recently divorced and still lives near her ex, who is now with a man. During her summer holiday she decides to visit all the sights in New York City. She is accompanied on her sightseeing by a friend of a friend Kellan. Kellan is just out of the army and is flat sitting for her aunt during the summer holidays. They are attracted to each other, but their attraction is slow moving, with lots of flirtation. Very well written with great descriptions of NYC sights, which made me want to visit. It is a lovely, feel good book and I would highly recommend.

Perfect summer listen

Brooklyn Summer is exactly the kind of book where Lori Prince excels: light, sexy and relatively angst-free. Ms Prince is one of my favourite narrators and I’ll listen to her in any lesfic genres and never be disappointed, but she’s really at her best in stories like this one. I loved the book, I loved the audiobook just as much: Lori Prince brings the characters to life perfectly, Ashley and Kellan are still sweet, they still have fantastic chemistry and their story is heartwarming and sunny. It’s a perfect summer read and/or listen.

Great Listen!

I loved this audiobook! it took me only 3 days to finish. I loved both main characters and nobody was trying to start drama or break them up, so that's a bonus. great narration! I wish there were more Maggie Cummings audiobooks on audible...

A great book for isolation

What do you do when you don’t remotely teach? You listen to audio books and this was a pleasure. Well written great well developed characters and Lori Prince is good as always.

Great book

As a gay woman from Brooklyn... the backdrop to this story resonates with me. These characters are beautifully flawed and went through life’s’ curveballs. Great story Cummings and expert narration Prince ❤️

er kinda boring

Awesome narrator but the book is pretty slow. This book is what made me learn that audible has an in app return limit. I'm frustrated with the lack of a plot so far. Is there a problem in this story? Oh my god then they talk about pronouns. Can there just be woman lesbians who accept themselves as a singular person and not a group. Who is this book for?

Boring and irratating

First of all I didn't like Ashley. She plucked my last nerve . I found myself forwarding faster. Now I don't care what you say, her ex wouldn't have gotten the time of day. I would have been polite like hello bye. I don't care how the author tried too clean it up. Oh it was my fault. If it hurt you every time you saw them, you might as get on your knees and say beat me. I can't stand a person whose a glutton for punishment. I don't need to conversate with you. It irritated the heck out of me. And that's why I don't like it. Please you lesbian authors stop making us look so weak.

Loved everything about it

I read this first and let me tell you having Lori prince read it too me was the icing on the cake.... I feel that this book is some of Cummings best work yet. the romance that she built between Ashleigh and Kellan is some of the best I have read . I loved how the storyline between the two mains took us through the city of New York and the surrounding burrows, It was the slow burn buildup of the romance between the two mains that kept me invested in this book. This story filled my heart so full I couldn’t get enough of it, the faster I turned the pages the deeper I fell into this amazing romance. The chemistry between Ash and Kell was off the charts hot, the sexy time was so hot some of it made me blush. Trust me you will want to read this book as soon as you can.

Great!

I loved Brooklyn Summer. I loved meeting Kellen and Ashleigh. I was happy with the ending, trying not to give anything away. Lori Prince did a great job with the narration.
