Jenna Brennan doesn't believe in love. She doesn't believe in marriage, and she's learned to only count on herself. At her Uncle Walter's insistence, and a little emotional blackmail, she returns to Misty Harbor Cottages to help him for one last summer in a place that's really the only home she's ever known.
Cole Zamora has worked at Misty Harbor for more than half of his twenty-three years, and imagined someday owning the place. He met Jenna when they were ten-years-old, and his young heart fell hard for her, relishing every summer she came back. That is, until two years ago, when she broke his heart and never returned.
Uncle Walter proposes a challenge between the two, with the winner becoming the new owner of Misty Harbor. Now, there's a real chance Cole could lose his heart and his home. Jenna isn't sure which worries her more-a summer of rivalry or romance?
Misty Harbors Cottages is where Jenna heads to each summer to work. Her first summer there she meets Cole and they become best friends. They are excited to see each other each year. They both had tough childhoods and needed each other to lean on. It was a cute, clean story and their friendship was very natural. They like to compete with each other and have fun. They are competing with each other to see who will own the Cottages after the summer. The ending is cute and leaves you smiling. It was a quick read about friendship that is on its way to becoming a romantic relationship. There was a couple times I had to reread a part to understand who was talking but I really liked this book. This was a new author to me and I'm excited to read more of their books.
