Book Review of “Summer Confessions” by Lynn Vroman


Blurb:

Macy Diaz has managed childhood friend Jeb Porter’s crush for years. However, his infatuation turns to obsession, even putting a kid in the hospital just for hitting on her. In the past, Macy brushed it off, explained his bizarre acts away. But now she harbors a secret. She’s in love…with Jeb’s sister, Rachel.

By some miracle, Rachel loves Macy back, and despite the small minds polluting their sleepy southern town, they’re sticking together. Unfortunately, making sure Jeb never grows suspicious proves harder every day—until everything falls apart.

As a sick, unstable Jeb starts to threaten all Macy values, she is reminded of what has always been perfectly clear. Macy belongs to him, only him, and he won’t let her go. Ever.

If only Macy could’ve loved Jeb, she wouldn’t have to worry about surviving him now.

Genre: Romance / Romantic Suspense / Lesbian love / Young Adult / Contemporary Romance
My Review:

Summer Confessions is about a couple of young girls who understand their orientation and come forth with it. The story does not go typically about the issues faced for couples of same-sex. It is more of a stalker kind of story.

The character building in the story is really nice. Macy is shown as a confused teenager who did not know she is a lesbian till she developed feelings for her then-boyfriend’s sister, Rachel. Her boyfriend Jeb did not take this transition positively. The story is about how deranged Jeb gets and what all he does to try to win Macy back.

Although it is a love story between two girls, it is more of a coming-of-age kind of story. The innocence and simplicity of the two girls when they realize their feelings for each other is sweet.
