Merritt and Her Childhood Crush


I said I’d never set foot on Oakley Island again. Not so long as HE lived there. But after my life implodes, I’m reconsidering EVERYTHING. Including my reasons for avoiding the first—and only—man I’ve ever loved.

I’m a high achiever. Driven. Maybe a little TOO driven.

So when my boyfriend confesses to cheating AND steals the promotion I’ve been working toward for years, I do the unthinkable for someone like me.

I break.

But the timing couldn’t be better for me to fall apart—I can escape to the idyllic Oakley Island and oversee the renovations on my late grandmother’s estate.

There’s just one tiny, massive, little problem: no one told me the contractor is the grown up version of the boy I fell in love with years ago.

He was my first love. My first kiss.

My first heartbreak.

Now, I’m faced with seeing Hunter daily. Being his boss. Forging a new dynamic that fits our adult selves.

Hunter is bigger. Bearded. Talks in grunts rather than words.

And has just as much hold on me as he ever did.

Trouble is, Hunter’s life is on Oakley. His daughter is on Oakley. And it was never my plan to stay here permanently.
Do I really want to risk having my heart broken a second time? More importantly, do I want to risk breaking his?

Merritt and Her Childhood Crush is a second chance at childhood first love romantic comedy. The Oakley Island Romcoms follow three very different sisters as they renovate the house they inherited and find love on the island along the way. The stories are standalone, but if you like continuous stories, we recommend reading them in order. Each book is closed door, with sizzling chemistry but no spice.

My thoughts: I enjoyed returning to Oakley Island with another sister in this fun series! I was curious how Merritt would do on the island, after living in New York City and climbing the corporate ladder. I enjoyed her re-adjusting to island life and trying to figure out who she is in the new chapter of her life, even when life throws her a curve ball and she finds out she will be working with her high school flame. I would have liked a bit more of an update on how the house remodel was coming along, since the first story had more. And, I will admit to feeling a little bad for Hunter's ex (though, she does get annoying). This is such a delightfully fun series! I look forward to returning with the last sister, Sadie, when her book comes out!

I received this book from the author. This is my honest review.
