REVIEW by Bobbie Jo:  Wow!  That about sums up my feelings on CRUEL SUMMER and for the author KR Conway.  It didn’t take long for her to make it to my favorite author list.

I was given the opportunity to read an ARC of Cruel Summer.  I will tell you that when I first heard from the author that I would have to wait to get the book that comes after STORMFRONT (can you say cliffhanger) until after this prequel my first thought was “oh crap”.  But as I support how an author feels they need to share and tell the stories, I took a deep breath and waited for Cruel Summer.

This story is all about Ana and Kian (with some MJ who is really deep down my favorite).   I didn’t think I could love Ana anymore than I already did, but this girl is one amazing character.  She is tough and witty, and down right brilliant in how she handles Kian.  Kian – a Mortis, soul shark – is struck by Ana’s presence and moved to get to know her, protect her, be near her.  They change each other – they protect each other – their relationship is beautifully described and well written.  As a reader you feel right there with them – right in the cabin of Cerberus (which I would love to ride on one day).  I also liked seeing how the relationship between MJ and Kian grew – all in their shared love for Ana.  This trio is something else.

I am so glad that the author wrote this book before the last in the series.  Getting the opportunity to know Kian and Ana, see how their relationship blossomed and then fell apart – well it was PERFECT.  Having this story brings so much more to both UNDERTOW and STORMFRONT – although I would still recommend reading CRUEL SUMMER after those two books.

I give CRUEL SUMMER 5 Stars and completely recommend this book, this series, and this author.

Big thanks to ReadingDiva for allowing me to guest review, yet again!

Do I recommend this book? Yes, Yes, Yes, and YES!
