The First Summer Lake Emerald Chronicles #1 AnnoyingOmg I couldn't get past the first few pages I rarely write bad reviews because I was raised believing that if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything I was just really annoyed with the characters from the beginning I am so sorry but it's a do not read for me Lake Emerald Chronicles The First Summer by Melissa Adams is a Reverse Harem Romance• 🌟 My review 🌟I saw this book of a Forbidden Love Story rather than a Reverse Harem Romance If you relate Reverse Harem with adult love I suggest you go into this book seeing it as a Forbidden Love This view is based on the age differences between the heroine and heros as well as the positions 3 of the heros hold as counselors of the camp and the heroine being a camper There is a lot of controversial topics and situations throughout this book so I do recommend you go into this book with an open mind There is underage drinking and sex throughout this novel and where I come from this is not uncommon Therefore I was able to see past these issues some would have problems with and focus on the love interests and stories that were being told The overall story does need work on but the characters were the highlight of this book for me•ConcernsI do want to share these with you so you are aware This novel does have some formatting issues due to how it transferred onto kindle format according to author and editing needed There is a recount of rape and is not addressed the way I would prefer when rape is involved The author has mentioned it will be addressed in following books I just wished it was addressed better in this book and taken seriously•OverallThis book has so much potential to grow in the following books as this is the authors first book 💝FREE on today 922018💝BlurbClary is 16 and she’s never been kissed Every summer she goes to Summer Camp at Lake Emerald where she reunites with her BFFs Brie and Hazel Camp gets her away from her super strict parents in LA and she can’t wait to see her epic crush Joel Joel doesn’t even know her name and she has been adoring him from afar for two summers But this year Clary has legit boobs and she’s all grown up so will Joel finally notice her?

Joel’s girlfriend mad southern belle Jemma? This will be a summer of love sex discovery fun and danger for Clary her boys and her friends MehSeriously I love RH novels One of my favorite sub genres even the teenyoung adult ones From slow medium burn to steamy I like it all However my number one rule is you have to have a well developed characters and plotThis was basically none of that just a teenage sex book The plot was underdeveloped and the writing sub par Clary was just annoying and most of the supporting characters were extreme and over the top The guys have insta lust to insta love Xander and Logan were fine in the beginning but became so underwhelming as the story progressed Joel was just a womanizer though a good sounding board I guess He ironically had the most depth out of all of the characters Now I did not mind that they were 18 and Clary 16 I did have an issue with Austin being a 20 year old college grad pining after some junior in high school I cannot get beyond that when they interact especially his childishness and moving so crazily fast into a sexual relationship with an obvious minor I mean had she been 18 or even 17 going on 18 soon This was just not even addressed as being an issue Must be a rich thing?Spoiler ALERT the rape was just swept under the rug? I mean it was barely brought up again and the girl bounced back so uickly Her BFF Brie just didn't bring it up at all How is this relatable? In what world does that am happen?Bullying assault underage drinking and sex all happening and not one adult does anything since they don't want a lawsuit or in Clary's and Hazel's case to be pulled from camp I mean they were all doing this guests and counselors alike with absolutely no FEAR of getting caught except for their reputation No fear of being kicked out arrested caught by any authority in the camp? NothingThis book just had too much happening and hardly any resolution to any of the tensionOverall this book was Meh and just hard to finish There is potential but needs an overhaul on some key areas I read the blurb for the next one and didn't see much difference Even added in guys moving next door Yeah shall not be continuing this series Trigger Warning Clary is 16 and she’s never been kissed Every summer she goes to Summer Camp at Lake Emerald where she reunites with her BFFs Brie and Hazel Camp gets her away from her super strict parents in LA and she can’t wait to see her epic crush Joel Joel doesn’t even know her name and she has been adoring him from afar for two summers But this year Clary has legit boobs and she’s all grown up so will Joel finally notice her She also meets annoying but hot Xander who is Joel’s best friend and loves embarrassing Clary with snide remarks and his unwavering sarcasm Logan is an old friend who is also all grown up and this year wants than being just friends So Clary finds herself involved with two boys and things are heating up from a first kiss to a first orgasm And if you add to the mix Xander’s older sexy cousin Austin Things are sure to get complicated Clary knows she has to make a choice and agonises about it while going from one heated exchange to another with her boys But what if the boys knew and she didn’t have to make a choice What if it was possible to love three or even four boys at once and they agreed to share What if someone else had noticed and started sending Clary malicious threatening notes with photos of her romantic encounters Add some random attacks in the woods surrounding camp and the suspicions start who is doing this The resident mean girls Lucy Hayley and Leah The bad boys Rob and Justin Joel’s girlfriend mad southern belle Jemma This will be a summer of love sex discovery fun and danger for Clary her boys and her friends DNF %17I don't understand the ratings of this book This was HORRIBLE They don't go to summer camp they go to sex camp Kids and kids supervisors and supervisors kids and supervisors The age doesn't matter at all everyone's only thinking about fing everyoneAnd let's not start with the heroine Superficial and only thinking about boys like everyone else Logan is a little blonde kid about a year younger than us who was following me everywhere last summer like a sick love puppy and wouldn't get the hint that I wasn't into future high school freshmenRemember that our heroine is 16 and Logan is 15 He's one of the harem guysLet's continue I almost choke I mean that smile I remember how annoying it was when he followed me everywhere last year but Logan was shorter than me and skinny and now this guy looks like a young Chad Michael Murray with a touch of Scott Eastwood just for a good measureThe first thing I am going to do as soon as I have any internet connection is to accept his friend reuests and stalk the hell out of him on all possible social media Yes now that he's hot I will not be embarrassed by being seen with himAnd those uotes sum up our heroineThis was freaking disappointing Fiction works when the writer takes us into a world we don’t know and we meet characters who appear full bloodied and step fully formed from the page Melissa Adams achieves this with a flourish as we travel to a teenage summer camp where Clary just sixteen has a crush on JoelWe can feel the teenage angst as Clary takes that thrilling journey from being a child to the world of adulthood with its intrigues irony and innuendo Is she ready? The tingling sensations running through her say yes – and the way Joel’s eyes now fall on her makes her realise she is not mistakenIt’s a truism that the ways of love never run smooth More so for the teenager who suddenly discovers that she has not one admirer – but two Joel and his best friend Xander Then there’s Austin older worldly – not a triangle but a four sided box from which Clary suddenly realises there is no escapeLake Emerald Chronicles takes a darker turn attacks in the woods the rivalries and hatreds of the other girls at camp – the sudden realisation that at the end of the journey of kissing and petting is another barrier that Rubicon of sex once crossed there is no turning backNicely paced well written a thoroughly enjoyable Well I’m not sure what I expected but I really enjoyed this book It did have moments where it felt a bit over the top in how the big focus of the relationships building was the very freuent physical interactions And than once I wanted to slap some of the female characters But the plot did thicken Not sure it answered some very big uestions Namely who specifically was sending the notes? And what exactly did the guys plan for the winter? They seemed pretty adamant they would see her but all we got in this book was “trust us” A bit frustrating Overall enjoyable though Loved itCouldn't put it down till I was done Have to see what happens next😀 Seriously hope the asshats and beioches get what's coming to them If you read it you will find out who I'm talking bout 😡 Wow Melissa Adams weaves a story of young love lust and intrigue while giving the readers everything they could ever want in a Reverse Harem book I can't wait to read the Second Book
