At the End of the Summer
Joshua’s life as a rock guitarist seems like a dream come true. Sold out concerts, red carpet events and wild nights portray him as a confident young man with the world at his feet. Only few friends know the scars he carries.
When freelance photographer Caroline meets the rock band Burning Ruins at the after party, an irresistible chemistry of attraction between her and the sexy rock guitarist is clearly seen to everybody. However, after a forced conversation from Joshua’s side, Caroline’s convinced the attraction is not mutual.
Waking up the next morning, Caroline has no idea what happened. She flees out of the hotel room mortified, convinced she’d become another of the band’s trophies. Determined never to meet anyone from Burning Ruins ever again, she has no clue people around her have different ideas.
In a summer that takes them from London to Wales and to the sultry heat of Rome, they’re desperately fighting their demons from the past, while trying to protect their broken hearts. Will they ever let each other mend their broken hearts or will they try to heal them alone?

Thank you to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
‘At the end of Summer’ is a great contemporary romance book with a bit of family drama and personal secrets thrown into the mix. The story flicks between the characters of Caroline and Josh as they begin their summer (which ended up being in Italy which I love) and ultimately their journey together.
Now it did take me a little bit of time to fully become emersed in this book and this is pretty much the only reason why I have rated this as a four star instead of a five-star read but once I got into it I didn’t want to put it down! I found it also really helped that each chapter wasn’t all that long making it way to easy to justify ‘just one more chapter’!
Both Caroline and Josh are really well written complex characters, each trying to deal with past hurts as they look on to how they could possibly have a future together. The romance aspect also took a little longer to start and at the start, I did have some questions about their initial attraction but as the book progressed I was rooting for them all the way! As I mentioned there is also a bit of family drama, secrets are thrown into the mix and I really felt that this worked to bring the book together. I also have to say I absolutely adore the cover of this book and even though I know I’m not supposed to judge a book by the cover I probably would have picked it up to read by the cover alone! A truly great four star read.
Would I read again: Maybe
Would I Recommend: Yes
Would I read another book from this author: Yes

About the Author
June was born in June and she always loved the moon. Born and raised in Slovenia, she studied economics, and quickly realised she hated it.
However, later she found herself working in mainly male-dominated businesses. She can choose the best steel for your project, but don’t, please don’t, ask her which lipstick brand you should use.
Although her writing was constantly criticised by her teacher that didn’t stop her. Under different pen names, she had stories published in magazines, and then went on to publish three books under pen name Eri Krt.
After having two children, and learning that her second child has autism, she married their father and carried on working. Work and family life left her with little free time. But the desire to write didn’t die.
Always looking for something new, she challenged herself to write a novel in English and all her three novels:
All that the Heart Desires
Caught Between Two Worlds
And At the End of the Summer
are a result of that continuous challenge …
