Love, Lucy ~Review

"Lucy looked away, over to the sun-drenched piazza, 
then back into Jesse's smiling face, 
into hi warm, searching eyes,
and the words came to her. "

Back of Book:
While backpacking through Florence, Italy, during the summer before she heads off to college, Lucy Sommersworth finds herself falling in love with the culture, the architecture, the food...and Jesse Palladino, a handsome street musician. After a whirlwind romance, Lucy returns home, determined to move on from her "vacation flirtation." But just because summer is over doesn't mean Lucy and Jesse have to be, does it?

In this stunning novel, April Lindner perfectly captures the highs and lows of a summer love that might just be meant to last beyond the season.

Vacation Flirtation is probably one of my favorite book genres. Yes, I think I just names my own genre, but you all know what kind of books fall into this one, the main character goes off on vacation or travels somewhere new and they mean someone along the way and BAM, a quick little relationship that may or may not continue on past the arrival home. Yes.... THOSE books.

Anyway, I kinda have a special place in my heart for those books. This one falls into that spot. I loved Lucy. LOVED her. She was sweet and relatable. She is far more adventurous than I could ever be. But frankly, she sucks at negotiating. The Europe trip was at the expense of something she loved which was BS.

Her father wasn't really someone I liked. I mean, I understood his points, but I did not agree with them. Moving on.....

Lucy meets this guy Jesse and OMG, I loved him! He was perfect. A gentleman that I couldn't help but adore. I feel like this book did a great job of showing the beauty and culture of Europe and I couldn't help but wish to go one day.
What I like and dislike at the same time about Vacation Flirtation books, it they half it. Half the book is in the vacation spot and the second half is back home. I HATE that they have to leave the magical vacation destination. But then I kinda love seeing the in their every day lives.

I enjoyed following Lucy around and going through the love and heartbreak and love that she goes through. The ending made me smile the most. this was a pretty cute summer romance book to get you out of a book slump.
