Summer flings with no strings mean nobody gets hurt.
At least, that was the plan…

After putting the brakes on her dead-end relationship, local veterinarian Ivey Anders is ready to soak up this summer on her own terms. The way she sees it, no dating means no disappointment. Why complicate life with anything long-term? But when she meets Corbin Meyer—and his troubled young son, Justin—Ivey’s no-strings strategy threatens to unravel before she can put it into practice.

Trust doesn’t come easy for Ivey’s best friend, Hope Mage, a veterinary-clinic assistant who’s affected by an incident that’s colored every relationship she’s had. Though Hope’s happy for Ivey, she can’t quite open her own heart to the possibility of love. Not just yet… Maybe not ever. Soon, however, she’s faced with a dilemma—Corbin’s older brother, Lang. He’s charming, he’s kind…and he may just be the reason Hope needs to finally tear down her walls.

And as the sweet summer months unspool, the two friends discover love won’t give up on them so easily.


A fun and flirty beach read filled with delightful characters, emotional depth and more heart than you’ll know what to do with … I loved every minute of THE SUMMER OF NO ATTACHMENTS! Lori Foster is known for down-to-Earth relatable characters with solid hearts, family allegiance and overall goodness to the bone and when she throws an animal or two or three into a story, you might as well settle in and get comfy because you are not going to want to put that book down until the last page is turned!

There was so much to love about the characters in this story. We had a veterinarian who lovingly mothers her traumatized assistant and every animals who crosses her path. We had a single dad who uprooted his life to find a healing place to raise the preteen son he just discovered. And the supporting cast of an assistant and an older brother bring another dimension of friendship, family and love to the story.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a story rich with emotion and camaraderie as real issues are dealt with and true bonds are built on that road toward happily ever after.
