Ashley watched her sisters struggle after marrying young, so she impulsively created The List of twenty-five things she must complete before she ties herself down with marriage and kids. She thinks a summer with her cousins in California would be a great way to cross a few things off her list before she goes to grad school, but when she chooses Matt as her surfing instructor and potential summer fling, she gets more than she bargained for.
This book is a light, funny read that is perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon or a day at the beach. Ashley is a bit annoying at first, and since the book is from her point of view I also felt like we didn’t get to know Matt as much as I would have liked to, but it’s fun to watch Ashley change her mind about love. The ending is very satisfying and this book almost convinced me to go to California and try my luck with surfing lessons.
