Fiction. Literature. Romance. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:A sharp and scintillating summer novel that will make readers laugh out loud and cry happy tears from the New York Times bestselling author of Yours Truly.

Justin has a curse, and thanks to a Reddit thread, it's now all over the internet. Every woman he dates goes on to find their soul mate the second they break up. When a woman slides into his DMs with the same problem, they come up with a plan: They'll date each other and break up. Their curses will cancel each other's out, and they'll both go on to find the love of their lives. It's a bonkers idea... and it just might work.

Emma hadn't planned that her next assignment as a traveling nurse would be in Minnesota, but she and her best friend agree that dating Justin is too good of an opportunity to pass up, especially when they get to rent an adorable cottage on a private island on Lake Minnetonka.
It's supposed to be a quick fling, just for the summer. But when Emma's toxic mother shows up and Justin has to assume guardianship of his three siblings, they're suddenly navigating a lot more than they expectedincluding catching real feelings for each other. What if this time Fate has actually brought the perfect pair together?

Emma and her best friend Maddy are travel nurses: they work somewhere for three months, then choose somewhere new. But they change their plans from Maddy's next pick (Hawaii) to go to Minnesota when Emma gets in touch with Justin through reddit: both Emma and Justin seem to be "good luck charms," in that whoever they date finds their soulmate right after they break up. To break the curse, Emma and Justin decide to date each other: then, they'll each meet the love of their lives when they break up with each other.

Instead, Emma and Justin fall in love - but there are a few wrinkles. Like, Justin is about to get custody of his three younger siblings when their mom goes to prison for embezzling, and Emma is afraid to actually get close to anyone because her mom Amber repeatedly abandoned and neglected her when she was a child. And Amber surfaces - not to see Emma, but to date Emma's landlord and boss (Neil is a surgeon at Royaume, where Emma and Maddy are working). Maddy predicts that it's only a matter of time before Amber does her usual Amber thing and leaves them in a mess, but Emma refuses to warn Neil about Amber, hoping she has turned a corner.

Through the heavy family drama on both sides, Emma and Justin keep showing up for each other, taking comfort in each other's presence, and falling in love. But when Emma discovers the depth of Amber's lies and deception, they have a huge fight, and Emma flees, her anger finally overpowering her empathy.

Less steamy than many romances, but compulsively readable. An epilogue six months after the fact ties up most loose ends. Alexis and Daniel (Part of Your World) make an appearance, and Justin wears a Jaxon Waters (The Happy Ever After Playlist) t-shirt, in a nod to main characters in Jimenez' other books. Nadia Cakes is mentioned once as well.

Quotes

"You know how when something bad happens to someone you love, and you wish you could take it from them instead? ...What if the universe listened?" (95)

"I've had a lot of bad things happen to me...I think sometimes the key to happiness is framing those things a different way." (95)

It was like there was no peaceful place to exist, no emotional safe space. I could have chaos, or I could have worry. I could be in the tornado, or I could be in the eye. But I could never be out of the storm. (Emma, 103)

It's funny how when you find someone you like as much as I liked her, the destination is suddenly wherever they are. Even if there's someplace better, you wouldn't go if they couldn't come. (Justin, 205)

Not everything that comes out of a crisis is bad. Sometimes your traumas are the reason you know how to help. (Emma, 245)

"You deserve to be appreciated, Emma."
"I think I'm just used to feeling like I'm asking too much when I need something." (337)

"You are not what happened to you. You are what you do next." (Maddy to Emma, 368) ( )

The cover of this book beings to mind a light beach read. What a surprise when you read the book and find it a romance between two people who seem to be cursed. Each time they break their ex finds the love of their life. They meet online and an attraction develops.The girl, Emma is a traveling nurse so arrange to work near the boy, Justin.

As the story develops the reader finds out that Emma was frequently abandoned by her mother. As the book develops the reader finds her Mother is mentally ill and how has effects Emma. This book is worth your read. ( )

I absolutely loved this book!!
First and foremost, I am lucky enough to have a best friendship like the one between Maddy and Emma, so I love them and their relationship.
Secondly, I was a counselor for many years and I think the author did a beautiful job in tackling really really tough issues without judgment and heaviness, but with empathy and love. Thirdly, this is just a super sweet love story and a great summer read and I think you might really enjoy it too! ( )

Abby Jimenez is amazing. Somehow her books keep getting better and better. How is it possible?! Just for the Summer was so good. I didn't expect to feel all the feelings and start crying during it - but boy oh boy I was in for a treat. This book was soo good. These characters will stick with me and boy I wish they were real. Abby knows how to write real and flawed people. They are aren't two dimensional - they are wonderful. In Just for the Summer Emma and Justin meet through a Reddit thread. They are both convinced they have a curse. A curse that all their exes find "The One" after they break up. They decide to meet up in real life. Emma and her best friend Maddy travel all over the United States as travel nurses. They take turns picking locations. Emma decides to pick Minnesota so she can meet the Reddit guy. Initially they decide to meet so they can break each other's curses - but it quickly turns into so much more. They both have some heavy baggage and Abby deals with that brilliantly. Wonderful, emotional read! ( )

Just for the Summer by Abby Jimenez
Part of Your World series #3. Contemporary romance. Can be read as a stand-alone.
Justin is cursed. Every woman he dates finds their sole mate after breaking up with him. Emma is cursed the same as Jason. Since both want to find love, they come up with a plan to date each other, thus assuring they will both meet their true love when they stage their break up. Justin and Emma find themselves strangely compatible. Even with their lives getting crazy with her mother showing up and Justin assuming guardianship of his three siblings, they are making things work. Is it possible they have found their future?

You knew that answer already!
The house on the island that Emma and her roommate rent is unique but I’m not sure I would have been up for the adventure of only being able to boat off the island. Justin needs to get to Emma when she’s sick and nothing will stop him. I fell in love with him at that point.
All the feels in this book. You will be cheering them on too. I’ve come to love this author’s stories so much. She’s become an auto-buy. ( )

This book successfully captures the essence of a light, summer romance, radiating warmth and joy.
The specificity of the descriptions and the authenticity of the characters make it easy to sink into the story and share in the lives of the characters..............
