Silvana Reyes is a Mexican book blogger. She enjoys all types of sub-genres, but loves a good love story. Romance fiction is her heart and joy and you might find her screaming about book releases on her Twitter account.
Put on your sunscreen and grab a book, because summer is finally here. The sun is out and here to stay; you might experience some light rain, but the summer weather inspires romances and stories and happily ever afters even in the darkest days.
Sometimes it’s great to live in a place where the weather pretty much never changes. Some cities have ice-y winters, some other cities have 24/7 showers. We all know the weather will never be consistent. But somehow whenever summer arrives, we know it’s the season for the sea, the sand, and some frozen margaritas.
If you are going on holidays or spending some time on the beach close to home this summer, this list of books will make you enjoy it even more. Take out your sunglasses, find a comfortable position to read and open your book. You will want summer to never end so the aesthetic of these books will continue all year long.

A Summer for Scandal by Lydia San Andres

Years later, Nathan wants to win the girl back for good.

Boracay Vows by Maida Malby
Summer romances always entail a due date. It might be a summer fling or characters agreeing on casual dating, no strings attached.
