Summary from Goodreads:

Loving Chris Henderson would be wrong. Diabolically disastrous. I mean, what is there about him to love? He’s moody, bossy, brooding, a control freak, and that’s on a good day … but there was one achingly obvious fact that haunted my every thought, every minute of every day …

He sure could kiss.

As the countdown to the new millennium begins, there is one thing everyone agrees on: no one wants to be in Onslow for New Year’s Eve.

So that can only mean one thing: road trip!

No longer the mousey, invisible, shy girl from years ago, Tammy Maskala is finally making up for all those lost summers. A new year with new friends, which astoundingly includes the bossy boy behind the bar, Chris Henderson.

She likes her new friends (at least most of them), so why does she secretly feel so out of place?

After chickening out on the trip, a last-minute change of heart sees Tammy racing to the Onslow Hotel, fearing she’s missed her chance for a ride. The last thing she expected to meet was a less-than-happy Onslow Boy leaning against his black panel van.

Now the countdown begins to reach the others at Point Shank before the party is over and the new year has begun. Alone in a car with only the infuriating Chris Henderson, Tammy can’t help but feel this is a disastrous start to what could have been a great adventure. But when the awkward road trip takes an unexpected turn, Tammy soon discovers that the way her traitorous heart feels about Chris is the biggest disaster of all.

Fogged up windows, moonlight swimming, bad karaoke and unearthed secrets; after this one summer nothing will ever be the same again.

I fell in love with the Onslow boys the first time I met them in The Boys of Summer (book #1).  My favorite Onslow boy is still Toby, but I do have to say that Chris is my second. I loved Chris so much in the first book. Chris and Toby are so much alike. Both guys are moody, bossy and sexy as heck. But I think Chris is more broody than Toby. Chris is also a control freak, which despite how it sounds, can be good when it comes to the ladies. Just ask Tammy. ;) 

THAT ONE SUMMER is also my second favorite book in this series (at least at this time), because C.J. Duggan gives us more of Toby and Tess (from book #1), as a background story of Chris and Tammy’s beautiful love story. So this is an extra bonus to see where Toby and Tess are at in their relationship. 

I fell in love with Chris all over again and more so as I finally got to see who Chris is through his own insight, and yes, Chris is everything I’d hoped for as one of the Onslow boys. He is all alpha male, sexy Aussie, and gorgeous, who's just lost his control over his heart. I loved seeing Chris falling in love with Tammy. Chris lives up to that saying...The tougher they are, the harder they fall. And fall he did for Tammy, who's Amy’s best friend. Tammy is shy and a nervous kind of person. It was so right and so much fun watching these two to fall in love with each other.

THAT ONE SUMMER is Chris and Tammy's love story and one you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it as a must read as well as the whole Summer series by C.J. Duggan. Can't wait to read Adam and Ringer's story.


My Favorite Teaser Quotes

He was moody, bossy, a control freak, and that was on a good day. But there was one achingly obvious fact that haunted my every thought, every minute of the day... The man sure could kiss.


   Ringer grinned and nodded. "Yep! The one and only time you'll see Chris happy is when he's getting some; am I right or am I right?" He held up his hand to Sean.
    Sean just looked at him. "Mate. I'm not high fiving you."

     "Oh, Ringer found us in bed together." he said, brushing past me with a parting wink.
       My mouth dropped open. "No, he didn't," I insisted, quickly following him out into the hall to avoid their knowing smirks.
       "You may be ashamed of our love, Tammy, but sooner or later we must declare it to the world," Chris called over his shoulder as he headed down the hall.

 My Favorite Chris and Tammy Swoon

    Chris was sitting up in bed, reading a newspaper. I lay on my stomach, looking up at him, transfixed by the familiar crease between his brows as he concentration. So deep was his concentration that I doubted he even realised I was awake.
     And then he cleared his throat.
   "Man injured in Point Shank prank....Music Festival reaches record numbers...Coastal earthquake as woman endures multiple orgasms?"
    "Oh, stop it!" I sat bolt upright, pulling the paper out of his hands, my cheeks flaming.
    "That's not what you said last night." Chris smiled, broad and cheeky as he folded his hands behind his head.
