Fiction Tuesday - Rules of Summer

Beaches. Bonfires. Boys. It’s summertime in the Hamptons.

 First in series.
When seventeen-year-old Rory McShane steps off the train in East Hampton, it’s as if she has entered another universe, one populated by impossibly beautiful people wearing designer clothes and driving expensive cars. She’s signed on to be the summer errand girl for the Rules - a wealthy family with an enormous beachfront mansion. Upon arrival, she’s warned by other staff members to avoid socializing with the family, but Rory soon learns that may be easier said than done.
Stifled by her friends and her family’s country club scene, seventeen-year-old Isabel Rule, the youngest of the family, embarks on a breathless romance with a guy whom her parents would never approve of. It’s the summer for taking chances, and Isabel is bringing Rory along for the ride.
But will Rory’s own summer romance jeopardize her friendship with Isabel? And, after long-hidden family secrets surface, will the Rules’ picture-perfect world ever be the same?

Now doesn't sound like the best pool-side read ever? True there is a lot of cliche in it, but if you're a Pretty Little Liars fan or somewhere along that list, then the story just might make you smile..a little.

Told from Rory and Isabel's pov's, we might learn that its friendship that counts the most, but there is lots of romance to spice up the story.

Of course, do these girls ever fall for the right guy? 

Oh well, it is a summer read.

You never lose points in life by telling people how you feel.
