The Boys Next Door/Endless Summer By Jennifer Echols


Lori can't wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends--including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she's always been just one of the guys. Now that she's turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that's not going to happen--not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.

Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori's romantic summer melt into one hot mess?

My thoughts: When I bought this book, I got so scared because of its size, but I read the first part in two days!!! I just loved it! Part 1 is really fun and dynamic. We are presented to Lori, a distracted girl that has been hooking up with her neighbors since she was a little girl. Now that she has sixteen and a crush on Sean – one of the guys – she will try everything to get him, even date his younger brother, Adam, who has been her friend for her entire life. But Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the reading goes on, you realize that Adam is a very sweet guy and you start cheering for him.
                Lori really got on my nerve! Geez, how can she be so blind about a hot guy like Adam? If I were her, I would have definitely fainted when he kissed me! They were a really cute couple. The only thing that I didn’t like a little was the fact that he forgives her too fast. I would have tortured her a little(hehehe). But the rose path that he made for her was sooo adorable that I totally forgave him.
                The second part of the book, I liked it, but not as much as I liked the first. It seemed to me that Lori didn’t like Adam that much, otherwise she wouldn’t keep kissing all the boys in the neighborhood. Besides they were so complicated… It was much easier to go to Lori’s dad, say that they love each other and be done with it! If there is going to be a third, I hope that it’ll show us a much deeper relationship between Lori and Adam.
