    I am a fan of Theodora Taylor and have enjoyed her creative and unique approach to stories. One of my favorite books that I return to every so often is Taylor's HER VIKING WOLF because of it's uniqueness and the story is pure entertainment. I am mentioning this to soften the blow for myself and anyone who reads this review-so here it goes. I didn't particularly enjoy HIS FOR THE SUMMER. There I said it.

I am mentioning this to soften the blow for myself and anyone who reads this review-so here it goes. I didn't particularly enjoy HIS FOR THE SUMMER. There I said it. HIS FOR THE SUMMER is a very quick read which is fine because you do get a complete story; however I just didn't enjoy most of the story that I got. The story felt off somehow. Mostly I can't see anyone agreeing to belong to a man that they don't know at all even with real and urgent financial problems. That's so far into dangerous that I didn't want to accept it. Especially with what Cera has to do once she agrees. Yes, there is a twist to the story but at the time Cera has no idea who has her. She blindly submits herself to a stranger who could do anything to her and no one would be the wiser. I mean blindly literally. She has to wear a blindfold when she interacts with her 'benefactor'. WHAT? You have no idea who this man is and you wait naked and blindfolded for him to use your body as he sees fit? No one even knows where this poor girl has gone. No friends, no co-workers, no one. No ma'am. That should go against your natural sense of self preservation. Danger-danger Will Robinson! And of course Cera enjoys it and feels a connection to this stranger immediately. As for the stranger. The reader knows who he is and quickly gets a hint as to why he does what he does but it doesn't make much sense to me. What he asks of Cera is in no way his only option. He's wealthy, he's supposedly sincere, and he really hasn't done anything wrong against Cera so there is no real need for all of the cloak and dagger maneuvers. A simple direct approach could have been just as successful and more honest. If he really wanted to help her he could have paid off everything with or without her knowledge and she would have been unable to do anything about it. Once debts are paid it's not like Cera could go back and tell people to charge her again. This did not feel, to me, like a Theodora Taylor story. At least not what I have come to anticipate getting from her. I am sad to say that this was not a good read for me.

    As a Theodora Taylor work of Interracial Romance fiction, this book should have been a lot better than it was. Sad to say, but I found myself becoming seriously annoyed @ the 39% mark. Afterwards, I skipped through the book, just so I could find out what happened in the end (which left me feeling cheated in a major way). Since I still have a lot of mad love for this talented author, I'm going to end this review right here. Giving this one: 2 stars.

This is a must read, ladies and gents! It hot, sensual and the most erotic read in the series. Just flaming! Oh and our hero, Gus/Tavo/Gustavo Martinez aka Benton was just too much in this story. He was not perfect but he was obsessed with anything, all things Cera. 5 Sensual stars *****

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I loved the blurb and was very much excited to read this. But somewhere in Middle I lost enthusiasm. First of all I didn’t like how heroine gave in to the hero’s proposal so quick. No one was more surprised than me in this instance as I usually love a forced-blackmail love story. Second, hero claims he was in love with her all along.. yeah right! He was so in love with her that after he escaped he didn’t contact her for 15 years. Eventhough he could guess the situation she would be in. And their I loved the blurb and was very much excited to read this. But somewhere in Middle I lost enthusiasm.

I was also creeped out knowing he hit on his sister in law in past as heroine and sister in law was xerox copies. I even had problem with heroine being a 30 year old virgin! I have more complaints but lets stop. Recommended .

Fast forward 15 years, and he see's her again, but after all that happened so long ago, he doesn't think she would want to see him, so he watches her from a distance. When Gus finds out that she's in danger of losing her home, he takes drastic measures to not only makes sure she has somewhere to stay, but he also take the opportunity to be a part of her life again. When Cera realizes what Gus has done just to be near her, will she forgive him and give their love a chance, or will his secrets tear them apart for good? I enjoyed Cera and Gus's story. No matter how hard she tried, Cera just couldn't seem to recover from past issues that were not even her own. When she was offered the opportunity to start over with out having to worry money she took. I'm not so sure that the agreement she entered into was safe or smart, but when you're desperate you never know what you would do. Gus went to great lengths to hide his identity from Cera. I felt he went a little to far with some of the things he did especially since he was completely obsessed with her. Although I felt Cera gave in a little to easy to Gus, and I felt Gus was a control freak, I still felt the connection they had with one another. One of my favorite scenes in the book was after she found out who he really was and the make up scene between them. I was really looking forward to Gus's story and I wasn't disappointed.

    I live in Miami and won't hold it against the author the inaccurate description of our poor public transportation system. What I will hold against Taylor is the unrealistic nature of the plot and certainly so in our modern time. Yes, desperate people do desperate things, but not this desperate and so blindly.

    Very weird situation. I would say 3.5 stars Ok, this situation started out really weird. He pays her to be his for the summer. And she agrees. Smh. Definitely spoilers below. But the deep emotional stuff and their past makes it a more compelling story. He just went about it the wrong way.

I like how dedicated Cera is to her autistic sister. But I don't understand how she was ok with this situation. I don't get it. It just seems weird to me that she would accept his offer. Other than the strangeness of the situation and how controlling and obsessed Gus is, the book is very hot! Wow! Very smoking hot. But weird situation. And he really really really needed to learn that you can't buy people like that. Not everyone is out for money. Sometimes you just need to be honest.

    Loved it! Loved this book, this series has had me hooked from the very beginning. Gus and Cera where just awesome. The story was well written and quite unique in my opinion. The development of there relationship coupled with their past history was nothing like I have read before,to agree to the terms Cera did ,blind? Wow! I just knew I was not going to like Gus,but leave it to Ms. Taylor to have me rooting for him even if he was a bit of an a-hole. What I love most about this series is each story Loved it!

    Hmmm I am normally a fan of Theodora Taylor's books and enjoy reading them. I don't like to give mediocre reviews or bad reviews but sometimes you have to do it. However, this one was a bit of a let down. You have a male lead that comes off as weirdo and a female lead that is weak and unbelievable.

    This is Cera and Gus' story. I think book 11 in the 50 States series by this author. I actually enjoyed this story, the mystery of it all for Cera and knowing that Gus had a secret he was hiding from her. I loved the whole not speaking and blindfolding part and just getting to know each other by their senses. I also loved the texting they did to speak to each. I also enjoyed that the focus of story was mainly on the couple. This one may not be everyone's cup of tea. This is Cera and Gus' story. I think book 11 in the 50 States series by this author.

    This is really 2.5 stars for me. It was a bit stronger than an ok read but I can't say I really liked it. My issue isn't with the characters - they are interesting - but that the story feels thin and also hurried. I would love it if she one day revised this story to add some more weight to it. I look forward to her next release, regardless. This is really 2.5 stars for me. It was a bit stronger than an ok read but I can't say I really liked it.

    This book left me feeling incredibly...sad. It's a romance with supposed-to-be steamy scenes; they were written well enough, but it all just made me feel forlorn. Cera's life of struggle, to Gus's cruel manipulation, to the months spent in his house - none of it was romantic. Even Gus, in spite of his ignorant cruelty in the way he treated her, garnered little more than sadness out of me. This book left me feeling incredibly...sad.

    I am surprised but I really got into this book. Cera and Gus had a strong connection since they were teens but tragedy struck and they were torn apart before anything romantic could have been explored but Gus never forgot Cera. Fast forward 15 years and as if by destiny, their paths cross again and end up engaging in some pretty hot passionate and intimate moments, only she doesn't know it's him! Anyway, I'll let you read the story so you find how this is possible. Only thing I didn't like was i I am surprised but I really got into this book.

    Twists and turns but a HEA This story was so thrilling. I found myself so engrossed in the book that I was on pins and needles wondering if Gus and Cera would work out. I love the references to NOLA being a NOLA native myself. The love story was pretty effed up in how it started but with all the emotional baggage that each character was carrying, you, as the reader, had no choice but to empathize with them. Loved this story. The author did a good job!

    Least favorite I don't know why, but I couldn't really enjoy this book. 9 times out of 10 Taylor's books always get me. For some particular reason, this one didnt capture my attention. There was really no build up. It was like. Day one she loses her job, day 2 she's accepting a check from him, day 6, she's been flown out to his apartment where she agrees to sex. Everything was through blindfold or text messages. Least favorite I don't know why, but I couldn't really enjoy this book. 9 times out of 10 Taylor's books always get me.

    Good book! This was a good book. The chemistry between Gus and Cera was smoking hot! But Gus should have come clean with Cera instead of fooling her. Would have lived a little mire background on Cera but it was still a good book. Love how it tied in with the other characters from Ms Taylor's other books. Good stroyline with a happy ending.

    This was a sweet interesting story. GUS was hopelessly in Love with Cera. Poor girl had it hard but like most of us Strong Black Women she didn’t let it break her. I see Ms Taylor loves to include other characters from other books. This had me researching the other books that i must read and learn their backstories. So far i have 6 others i have to read.☺️☺️

    Great read Hard to sum this story up. I enjoyed Cera and Gus's story. It was full of mystery and has a beautiful ending. His love for her was at a slow summer until a chance sighting at the bus stop. I loved the update on Tasha and Auto Nakamura also. Great read Hard to sum this story up.

    Great! Three step brothers find each other, then each of those brothers fall in love with women who resembles each other are striking. To the point that they could be related. One odd way to fall in love and old characters meshing well with new ones. That makes for a great T. Taylor.
