Named One of the Hottest Reads of Summer 2022 by Today ∙ Parade ∙ PopSugar ∙ USA Today ∙ SheReads ∙ BuzzFeed ∙ BookBub ∙ Bustle and more!

Six summers to fall in love. One moment to fall apart. A weekend to get it right.
They say you can never go home again, and for Persephone Fraser, ever since she made the biggest mistake of her life a decade ago, that has felt too true. Instead of glittering summers on the lakeshore of her childhood, she spends them in a stylish apartment in the city, going out with friends, and keeping everyone a safe distance from her heart.

Until she receives the call that sends her racing back to Barry’s Bay and into the orbit of Sam Florek—the man she never thought she’d have to live without.

For six summers, through hazy afternoons on the water and warm summer nights working in his family’s restaurant and curling up together with books—medical textbooks for him and work-in-progress horror short stories for her—Percy and Sam had been inseparable. Eventually that friendship turned into something breathtakingly more, before it fell spectacularly apart.
When Percy returns to the lake for Sam’s mother’s funeral, their connection is as undeniable as it had always been. But until Percy can confront the decisions she made and the years she’s spent punishing herself for them, they’ll never know whether their love might be bigger than the biggest mistakes of their past. 

Told over the course of six years and one weekend, Every Summer After is a big, sweeping nostalgic story of love and the people and choices that mark us forever.


  • OMG

    By Calli-bean
    This has been one of the best books I’ve read in a while. The drama, the plot, the characters, all of it was amazing!!! I literally could not put the book down. If you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover books imagine that but 10x better.
  • Great book

    I love this book, it was an easy read and really enjoyable; the storyline and characters was great.
  • Yeahhhh no

    By Mih_Hall
    First off this book is such a ripoff of Christina Lauren’s Love and Other Words, and secondly, yeah no. In no way shape or form is anyone getting past what Percy did. Booooooo Percy! Like the “secret” ruined what was a decent knockoff book.

    By EllleGee
    I legitimately have never stayed up so late, for so many consecutive days in a row, absolutely captivated by a book. I absolutely LOVE this book. I wish I could rewind time to feel it all again reading it for the first time.
