It Happened One Summer pdf book is a romance novel by Tessa Bailey.

It Happened One Summer Summary
Piper Bellinger is fashionable, influential, and her reputation as a wild child means the paparazzi are constantly on her heels. When too much champagne and an out-of-control rooftop party lands Piper in the slammer, her stepfather decides enough is enough. So he cuts her off, and sends Piper and her sister to learn some responsibility running their late father’s dive bar… in Washington.
Piper hasn’t even been in Westport for five minutes when she meets big, bearded sea captain Brendan, who thinks she won’t last a week outside of Beverly Hills. So what if Piper can’t do math, and the idea of sleeping in a shabby apartment with bunk beds gives her hives. How bad could it really be? She’s determined to show her stepfather—and the hot, grumpy local—that she’s more than a pretty face.
Except it’s a small town and everywhere she turns, she bumps into Brendan. The fun-loving socialite and the gruff fisherman are polar opposites, but there’s an undeniable attraction simmering between them. Piper doesn’t want any distractions, especially feelings for a man who sails off into the sunset for weeks at a time. Yet as she reconnects with her past and begins to feel at home in Westport, Piper starts to wonder if the cold, glamorous life she knew is what she truly wants. LA is calling her name, but Brendan—and this town full of memories—may have already caught her heart.

You know that feeling you get when you are so in love with a book that you finish it in a day? This is my experience with this phenomenal read. I feel absolutely gobsmacked in the feels, and this may just be one of my favorites this year! I’ve never read Tessa Bailey before, and man do I need to fix that! This was pure joy that you could hold in your hands, and the audio—😘😘.
Brendan and Piper’s journey was delicious. I’m so in
Love with this sea captain I can see why Piper didn’t stand a chance. I believe this is my first fisherman hero ever!! So freakin perfect! A widower of seven years?! He didn’t know what hit him when Piper came to town. I loved seeing her transformation from flighty party girl socialite to someone that learned the value of money, hard work and what real love is.
“What he felt for Piper turned him into a young man in the throes of his first infatuation, while also calling on the deepest roots of his maturity.”
Once Brendan was finally able to take off his ring, and put it away this growly, possessive beast of a man was released and if he didn’t ring all my bells, and whistles making me squirm I don’t know what did. He. Was. Hot 🥵
Grumpy fisherman and a sunshine girl. Yes, please! I need so much more!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars A bubbly, laugh out loud, spicy romcom!

“You can be as high maintenance as you want, honey. But I’m the only one who does the maintenance. Understood?”
If you are in the mood for a quick, hot summer read, and you haven’t read It Happened One Summer, what 👏🏼 are 👏🏼 you 👏🏼 doing!
This story is like a mash up of Schitt’s Creek, Legally Blonde, and the tv show Deadliest Catch. Piper is a stereotypical LA “It Girl”. After landing in jail, her stepdad sends her to the small seaside town she was born to reconnect with her roots. There she meets Brendan, a gruff, grumpy fisherman who clearly doesn’t want her to stay, but soft boi can’t seem to stay away from her. Brendan learns that Piper is more than a pretty face with a bubbly personality and the two polar opposites embark on a turbulent course to destination HEA. Oh, I can’t forget Hannah, she joins Piper because that’s what the worlds best little sister does 😤 and they are my new fave sister, sister duo.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Schitt’s Creek
Reviewed in the United States on July 17, 2021
This book is essentially Shitt’s Creek fan fiction. The heroine is based on the Alexis character in that show. Alexis is the airhead daughter in the wealthy Rose family from NYC. The family lost all their money and ended up in the tiny backwater town of Schitt’s Creek. It’s an archetypal “fish out of water” story. It’s hilarious. But Alexis is actually the least compelling of all the characters.
In this book, the Alexis character is Piper Bellinger, the rather worthless stepdaughter of a wealthy Academy Award winning Hollywood producer. She is more of a modern day Paris Hilton, an insufferable social media influencer who is famous for being famous. It’s tough to get past the first few chapters because Piper is so insufferable.
After Piper’s arrest, her stepfather sends her to Westport in the Pacific Northwest. It’s not Schitt’s Creek. It’s way nicer. This is still a “fish out of water” story, almost literally because she meets Brendan, a sea captain. They are opposites, they fall in love, and Piper comes to terms with her shallow self-absorbed past. Her transformation is much like Alexis Rose.
Unfortunately, there was never a moment when I actually cared about Piper. She never evolves into more than a fan fiction version of Alexis. I’ve read all of Tessa Bailey’s books and I’m afraid this is not a very good one. I’m not sure why her book prices have more than doubled. In this case, it is not worth it,
