About the Book



"Justin has a curse, and thanks to a Reddit thread, it's now all over the internet. Every woman he dates goes on to find their soul mate the second they break up. When a woman slides into his DMs with the same problem, they come up with a plan: They'll date each other and break up. Their curses will cancel each other's out, and they'll both go on to find the love of their lives. It's a bonkers idea... and it just might work. Emma hadn't planned that her next assignment as a traveling nurse would be in Minnesota, but she and her best friend agree that dating Justin is too good of an opportunity to pass up, especially when they get to rent an adorable cottage on a private island on Lake Minnetonka. It's supposed to be a quick fling, just for the summer. But when Emma's toxic mother shows up and Justin has to assume guardianship of his three siblings, they're suddenly navigating a lot more than they expected--including catching real feelings for each other. What if this time Fate has actually brought the perfect pair together?"--



Book Synopsis



Instant #1 New York Times bestseller and a Good Morning America Book Club Pick!
This witty, slow-burn rom-com is the "ideal beach read." --Elle

Justin has a curse, and thanks to a Reddit thread, it's now all over the internet. Every woman he dates goes on to find their soul mate the second they break up. When a woman slides into his DMs with the same problem, they come up with a plan: They'll date each other and break up. Their curses will cancel each other's out, and they'll both go on to find the love of their lives. It's a bonkers idea... and it just might work.

Emma hadn't planned that her next assignment as a traveling nurse would be in Minnesota, but she and her best friend agree that dating Justin is too good of an opportunity to pass up, especially when they get to rent an adorable cottage on a private island on Lake Minnetonka.

It's supposed to be a quick fling, just for the summer. But when Emma's toxic mother shows up and Justin has to assume guardianship of his three siblings, they're suddenly navigating a lot more than they expected--including catching real feelings for each other.

Review Quotes




"An emotional tour de force." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"With a perfect sense of literary aplomb and an abundance of deliciously sharp wit, Jimenez continues on an extraordinary upward trajectory with another gorgeously crafted contemporary romance. From moments of irresistible comic charm (a date with rescue kittens from the Bitty Kitty Brigade) to a compelling and compassionate story line that deftly and delicately deals with the impact of trauma on a person's emotional and physical well-being, Jimenez expertly balances humor and heart in this sublimely satisfying love story."--Booklist, starred review

This witty, emotion-filled novel from Jimenez isn't one to just read, it's one to sink into.--Library Journal, starred review

"The beloved Abby Jimenez gives 'it's just a fling!' a whole new meaning in this ideal beach read... Far more layered than its breezy, beautiful cover might suggest, JUST FOR THE SUMMER is yet another hit."--Elle

"Abby Jimenez has proven time and time again to be one of our must-read writers."--Cosmopolitan

"Jimenez is a true talent."--Emily Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read

Just for the Summer by Abby Jimenez. This was not only chosen at random, but also a blind read. I knew the author looked familiar, but I couldn’t place her right off. Then I read her bio and realized it was from Food Network! This book was absolutely brilliant! I couldn’t put it down! I laughed. I cried. I read it out loud to my mom. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style. I loved the attention to detail within the scenes and how easy it was to connect with the characters. Emma makes it easy to resonate with her character. Justin is the dream date we never get to have. Maddy is the friend we all under appreciate. I cannot wait to dive into another book by Abby. I also really can’t wait to go to Lake Minnetonka! #readmorebooks #justforthesummer #abbyjimenez

I loved this book, however, I purposely purchased from Target for the bonus chapter, but mine did not have it. Don’t buy online if you want the bonus.

Abby Jimenez is a masterclass in writing rom-coms. She writes gripping, funny romances that deal with difficult issues. The wonderful thing is that you know you are in good hands, Abby always acknowledges the medical experts she consults. Never have I ever wanted to move to Minnesota more, I craved it. I recommend starting with Part Of Your World, but it can totally be read as a standalone.
