Just for the Summer


A sharp and scintillating summer novel that will make readers laugh out loud and cry happy tears.

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


Emma hadn’t planned that her next assignment would be in Minnesota, but dating Justin is too good of an opportunity to pass up. It’s supposed to be a quick fling. But when Emma’s toxic mother shows up and Justin assumes guardianship of his 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?
