I would give this book 3 for a review.
Sidney and Asher should have clicked. Two star swimmers forced to spend their summers on a lake together sounds like the perfect match. But it’s the same every year–in between cookouts and boat rides and family-imposed bonfires, Sidney and Asher spend the dog days of summer finding the ultimate ways to prank each other. And now, after their senior year, they’re determined to make it the most epic summer yet. But their plans are thrown in sudden jeopardy when their feud causes their families to be kicked out of their beloved lake houses. Once in their new accommodations, Sidney expects the prank war to continue as usual. But then she gets a note–Meet me at midnight. And Asher has a proposition for her: join forces for one last summer of epic pranks, against a shared enemy–the woman who kicked them out.
Their truce should make things simpler, but six years of tormenting one another isn’t so easy to ignore. Kind of like the undeniable attraction growing between them.
I did really enjoy the setting and the concept of this read. I thought this explored a realtionship that I have not often seen in YA literature. I really enjoyed the love to hate elements of the story. I really liked the setting that we saw in previous books in this series. I struggled a bit with the pacing of this book and the tension was not as “intense” or captivating as I wanted it to be. But it was super fun read and I would def read more by the author in the future.
