He swore to never come back. She promised to hold him to his word.

After years of living the life his oppressive parents wanted for him, Cameron Blake is ready to pursue his dreams of being a reclusive artist. Pleasing the faithful baseball fans of the New York Emperors has been rewarding, but now all he wants is peace and quiet. That and an irreversible vasectomy. Because there’s no way he’s passing on the heavy burden of the Blake genes to an innocent child. But Cameron never gets what he wants. Ever.

The last thing Adrianna Arenas needs is for her ex to slide back into her life. Not when she can throw a nine-year-old curve ball that will change his game. Not when his father could tear her world apart with a simple phone call. Especially not when, despite everything that stands between them, her insides go wild when Cameron walks into a room. But Adri never gets to keep things the way she needs them. Ever.

After ten years, fate brings Cameron face-to-face with Adrianna, the woman he never forgot, and the little girl that ties them forever.

It all goes back to the secrets, jealousy, and heartache that destroyed the magical summer when they loved each other madly, broke each other’s hearts, and changed each other’s lives.

Read this second chance romance and find out if Adri and Cam’s story goes on the win column for love.




The Summer I Loved You will take you on an emotional journey that is full of tears, heart ache and love. This is the first installment in the new series, A Love for All Seasons.

Cameron Blake grew up with some overbearing and manipulating parents. They were just awful, they used their children for their own benefits. But somehow, Cam didn’t turn out to bad at all. He is a very successful artist with a background in Pro-Baseball. His love life kinda took a back to seat to it all, and never really had a good relationship since that summer with Adrianna.

Adrianna Arenas loved and loved hard that summer with Cam. But after having a falling out, he left and didn’t come back just like he promised her. It was just awful! Her heart was broken, but she had a reason to keep moving on from the heartache. And a wonderful one at that, Bronwyn, her little girl.

From the start I just adored these two flawed characters. With so many issues and so many things left unsaid all those years ago it took a while to let one another in. Their time together wasn’t without some problems, but they needed to find some kind of peace between them. Let me tell you, when they do the chemistry was off the charts! Together they faced fear and interfering family, it made for quite an emotional journey for these two and us the reader. Tissues were need a couple time, frustrations along the way too. But it was written so well, J.L. Lora wrote some amazing characters and wonderful romance story.

I am curious to see what the next installment in the A Love for All Season will bring us next. The Summer I Loved You with leave you with so many emotions once your done, but they’re so worth it. Fans of contemporary romances will eat this one up. It’s truly a fabulous read!
