Thoughts from a Bookworm: Your next beach read

Emma Bulman
The Tiger is looking for what to read this summer!

The Lion’s Den’ by Katherine St. John: ★★★★★

“The Lion’s Den” entertained me from its first page to its last. Katherine St. John takes readers through a story filled with betrayal, tension and extreme wealth. The book follows the main character, Belle, as she accompanies her best friend, Summer, aboard a giant yacht belonging to Summer’s older billionaire boyfriend.

With a stalled acting career and a once-in-a-lifetime vacation, Belle cannot refuse her best friend’s offer. But once the private jet takes off, Belle realizes the vacation promised is far from her and her fellow guests’ new reality. “The Lion’s Den” will have you racing to the last page.

‘Meant to Be’ by Emily Griffin: ★★★★

Loosely inspired by the Kennedy family’s alleged “curse,” Emily Griffin’s “Meant To Be” takes readers on a journey that’s historical, cinematic and timeless all at once.

Readers will be captivated by the story between Joe Kingsley, a handsome bachelor from one of America’s most affluent families, and Cate Cooper, a rising supermodel who had a tumultuous childhood. While Joe struggles to find the line between freedom and recklessness, Cate has to deal with an intense case of imposter syndrome. Their love for each other is instant and intense, but can it survive the publicity and issues accompanying the Kingsley name?

‘Good Girl Complex’ by Elle Kennedy: ★★★★★

“Good Girl Complex” provides readers with a story of romantic longing and the strength required to defy the status quo. At fictional beachside Garnet College, tension arises between town locals and college students.

Twenty-year-old Garnet student and people-pleaser Mac Cabot realizes that she has been living her life according to other people’s desires when she meets Cooper Hartley, a local boy with a bad reputation and a disdain for the trust fund students who take over the town during the school year. Mac challenges Cooper’s perception of Garnet’s students, while Cooper is the first major disruptor of Mac’s orderly life. The two want to be together despite their challenges and differences, but Cooper’s secrets threaten the harmony they’ve created in Avalon Bay.
