Summer Sky: A Blue Phoenix Book by Lisa Swallow

Ok, so in between all of the cover reveals and blog tours that I have been participating in recently, I have managed to read a few other books. the only problem is that I fall behind on reviewing them, because it takes me a while to process them. But since I have a few minutes while children are quiet, I thought I would catch up by doing at least one regular blog post. This book is called Summer Sky:A Blue Phoenix Book, (you know, in case you didn't get that from the blog title) and it was REALLY good. Here's the cover, synopsis, and purchase links before I launch into my actual review.

**LIMITED TIME PRICE DROP** Originally $2.99 

Falling Sky (Blue Phoenix #2) now available

Sky changed her life for a man once, and she has no intention of doing it again - even if he is a six-foot, tattooed rock god who makes a mean bacon sandwich.

Sky Davis is fed up of boyfriend Grant taking her for granted, and when she comes home to find him wearing a girl, Sky suspects the relationship is over. She takes an unscheduled vacation and leaves the life (and guy) she hates behind.

Rock star Dylan Morgan is struggling with fame and infamy, sick of his life being controlled by other people. Dylan cuts his hair and walks away from his role as lead singer of Blue Phoenix, leaving behind chaos and speculation.

Outside the English seaside town of Broadbeach, their cars and worlds collide.

Sky decides Dylan is an arrogant guy with too many tattoos, and Dylan is amused by the smart-mouthed girl with no idea who he is. Dylan and Sky soon discover they've travelled to Broadbeach for the same reason - to escape from reality and head back to a place with happy childhood memories. Losing themselves in a world where they know nothing about each other, Sky and Dylan begin a holiday romance that soon heats up their rainy English summer.

Fantasies can't last forever, and when reality crashes the party, Sky isn't sure she wants to be more than his 'summer Sky' but Dylan doesn't want to let her go.

Returning to the real world, public scrutiny isn't their only problem. Blue Phoenix lead guitarist, Jem Jones, has a reason for wanting Sky out of Dylan's life, and is determined to come between them. Some things won't stay hidden, even when they're paid to 'go away'.

Summer Sky is a contemporary romance with a rock star flavour where occasionally more than the bacon sizzles. It is the first in the Blue Phoenix series.

The Blue Phoenix books are a series of contemporary romance novels and novellas centred on the fictional rock band Blue Phoenix.

Please note: This is written in UK English and includes English idiom and spelling.

So here's my summary: There's not a whole lot to say without giving a lot of what happens in the book away, and I hate when I read reviews that tell you almost every little thing that happens. So I am going to try not to do that. Basically, Sky is headed to the one place she has always felt safe due to some unforeseen problems that have come up in the last few days. All she wants to do is clear her head and get back to the girl she use to be.

Dylan Morgan is also running from his past and decides to go back to the one place his family always seemed to have a great time. No one else knows where it is so it is the perfect way to escape from him every day life. What he doesn't expect on his way there is to literally crash into a beautiful woman with a feisty mouth. especially one who doesn't seem to know who he is. but what makes it even more interesting is that the place he rented for a month is the place that she is staying because it's owned by her family.

They figure out arrangements and agree that their lives outside of this place stay that way. It happens a little at a time, but they actually start to like each other once they get to know each other. But that all comes to an end when reality crashes in not even a week later. Sky does what she feels she needs to do and plans to get on with her life. but Dylan has other ideas because he wants the feisty mouth woman with him.

Things get a little heated and crazy for both of them trying to figure out what those few days meant to themselves and each other, but that's not the only thing that is going on. Someone is out to destroy their chances before they ever really start. Can they work through things or is one of them going to run? 

There, I think that was interesting enough to get people to read it, but vague enough that they don't feel like they have already read the book. Anyways I LOVED this book! There was just the right amount of drama, hot guy mystery, and steamy scenes to keep me satisfied. And while I normally don't like cliffhangers, the second book is ready immediately, so I got started on that already! So if this sounds like a book you could really get into, go help an author out and pick it up because it's on sale right now for $0.99!
