BLOG TOUR: Summer of Sloane

 Author: Erin L. Schneider
Goodreads Rating: 4.06 Stars

Warm Hawaiian sun. Lazy beach days. Flirty texts with her boyfriend back in Seattle.

These are the things seventeen-year-old Sloane McIntyre pictured when she imagined the summer she’d be spending at her mom’s home in Hawaii with her twin brother, Penn. Instead, after learning an unthinkable secret about her boyfriend, Tyler, and best friend, Mick, all she has is a fractured hand and a completely shattered heart.

Once she arrives in Honolulu, though, Sloane hopes that Hawaii might just be the escape she needs. With beach bonfires, old friends, exotic food, and the wonders of a waterproof cast, there’s no reason Sloane shouldn’t enjoy her summer. And when she meets Finn McAllister, the handsome son of a hotel magnate who doesn’t always play by the rules, she knows he’s the perfect distraction from everything that’s so wrong back home.

But it turns out a measly ocean isn’t nearly enough to stop all the emails, texts, and voice mails from her ex-boyfriend and ex-best friend, desperate to explain away their betrayal. And as her casual connection with Finn grows deeper, Sloane’s carefree summer might not be as easy to find as she’d hoped. Weighing years of history with Mick and Tyler against their deception, and the delicate possibility of new love, Sloane must decide when to forgive, and when to live for herself.

Top 10 Activities to heal a broken heart

10. Shopping – it’s amazing what a little retail therapy can do, even if it’s something small like buying a good book or downloading a few new tunes.
9. Swimming, running, or any form of exercise is a great way to burn off all the feels you’re having.
8. Hang out with friends.
7. Talk about it. It may seem as if no one else knows what you’re going through, but believe me, some actually do. And talking with them can lift a great weight off your shoulders.
6. Try to get away – maybe a road trip or even just a day spent away from home.
5. Get outside and take pictures…sometimes focusing a camera on something other than what’s going on, can make all the difference.
4. Spend time at an animal shelter. Animals never judge and they always love unconditionally.
3. Learn / do something new – take a cooking class, write, go skydiving, learn how to play a new sport. Whatever it is, you’ll not only feel better, but it will take your mind off everything else…even if just for a moment.
2. Surround yourself with those who love you.
1. Always put yourself first, no matter what.
