Until Summer Ends by Elana Johnson + Kindle Giveaway!

Sophie Newton is determined to prove herself to her father, who insists she could never run a successful business. She opens a beachside taco stand called The Sandy Tortilla and plans to make her own way, one burrito at a time.

When she loses her summer help, Sophie rushes to find somebody to help take orders. She finds that somebody in Montgomery Winters, a struggling actor from LA. Mont takes the job; the money's useful, though he finds that his curvy boss is what really keeps him around.

As Sophie and Mont work together, they discover an intense attraction between them. But when Mont's agent calls him about a career-making audition, he decides he must pursue the opportunity, even though he can't get Sophie out of his head. Now, Sophie must choose between chasing after the man she's falling in love with and the business she's fought so hard to build.

This book was perfect for the end of summer.  Set in a cozy beach town, I could practically hear the waves breaking and smell the ocean in the air.

Sophie and Mont are two very strong characters.  I just loved Sophie's determination and desire to make her taco stand a success.  Mont is equally determined to succeed with his acting career.  They were also so insecure in what they were doing- trying to prove themselves.  It made them seem real and vulnerable.

Watching Sophie and Mont dance around the growing attraction between them was so entertaining.  As they get to know each other, you could see and feel their minds shifting a bit to include the other person.  Choices that were so obvious before didn't seem so clear anymore.  

I thought this book was a lot of fun.  I enjoyed it from beginning to end and I'll be on the watch for more from this author!

Content:  Intimacy before marriage, no details- fade to black.  Innuendo.
