Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery

Mitch Taylor and Rebecca Sorenson share a secret. 
Rebecca's job as secretary of Cascade Elementary, the same school she attended as a child, is rewarding. She has a great group of friends, many of whom are married now. And if sometimes she wished it were her up there in that sparkling white dress… 
Except, wait—she did get to wear bridal white. Granted, it was a slinky party dress and the justice of the peace was Elvis in a gold lame jacket, but still, the deed was done. 
She'd tied the knot. 
Mitch Taylor doesn't do regrets. It would be a waste of energy bemoaning the mistakes he'd made in his life. The end of his promising football career taught him nothing in life was a guarantee. 
Like love. 
What were the chances two people from the same po-dunk town in Washington would end up together in a nightclub in Las Vegas? A few too many drinks later, a hasty ceremony performed by the king of rock ‘n' roll, and they'd been hitched. The night that followed lived on in his dreams, but when he'd woken the next morning she was gone. 
Can these two mismatched lovers find a way past their mistakes, or will they keep their lonely hearts forever guarded?

SUMMER LOVIN' is novella length and the fifth story in the Wounded Hearts series by Jacquie Biggar. This author always entertains me with well written, heart-felt romances. I do feel that the reader should read the previous books in this series to really enjoy this novella.

I feel like I have a split personality writing this review. If you have read the previous Wounded Heart stories, this novella wraps up issues from the previous books and we have all been waiting for Mitch to go and claim Rebecca. For five long years, they have not let anyone know they were married on a whim in Vegas. They have returned to their small town and lived separate lives. If you have not read the previous stories, you will have many questions as to why they have been living separately for this long with no backstory.

It is always fun to find out how characters from previous books are progressing. I feel this novella though is too short for all the additional characters and if you haven't read the other stories, they are just confusing and not needed for Rebecca and Mitch's story.

I liked that they were brought together by their concern for the two small boys and Rebecca's safety. It was a very fast reunion and change in feelings. I really would have liked this to have been a longer book with more romantic elements.

This is a well written romantic suspense novella for all of us who love the Wounded Hearts world. I would not read it as a standalone. Start at the beginning and fall in love with the whole series.
