Product description

Product Description

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.

The Summer Series:
Book 1: The Boys of Summer
Book 2: An Endless Summer
Book 3: That One Summer
Book 3.5: Ringer (Novella)

I hadn't read any of the Summer series yet, but had them on my TBR list. I am a big fan of Australian authors and when the tour invite came through I just had to be involved. I read book three in the series, That One Summer without reading books one or two. I don't think it mattered in the least, although I didn't know the other characters, the story was surrounding Tammy and Chris. I loved Ms Duggan's writing style and all the characters are fabulous, varied, funny and typical Australian teenagers.

That One Summer is set during the summer of 1999-2000 with the big unknown of the new millennium. The summer that everything changes for Tammy Maskala and Chris Henderson. The story begins with Tammy hanging out with her friends at the Onslow Hotel one night and they decide to play MURDER IN THE DARK. Ringer has to do the searching and Tammy takes off, she opens the first door she finds. Someone grabs her and they both hide in the closet, using her hands she has to discover which Henderson boy she is hiding out with and it's Chris.

Chris is known for his moody irritable attitude and serious behaviour, running the local pub is stressful and busy, but it does have its benefits. There seems to be an electrical charge between Tammy and Chris whenever they accidentally touch, what is that about?

Down by Sean's lake house, the boys decide so go camping for New Years and the girls invite themselves along. Tammy isn't sure she really wants to go, but Amy (her BFF) is pushing for her to go.

At the last minute Tammy goes, but the others have already left. Chris offered to drive Tammy to catch up with everyone and it gives them a chance to get to know each other. Slowly they relax and start to enjoy themselves.

I have been absolutely enjoying this series. The Boys of Summer was such a pleasant surprise, and was followed up by an equally enjoyable An Endless Summer. I wasn’t as excited to see That One Summer was going to be about Chris or Tammy. Even though they’re reasonably likable side characters in the previous two books, there were other characters that I’d like to know their stories a bit more. But once I started getting into That One Summer Chris and Tammy became some of my favorites. Or at least Chris did.

Tammy is a little high strung. She obviously has some confidence issues. She’s anxious almost at all times. And she doesn’t feel like she fits in, but I felt like that was more in her own head than actually not fitting in. I can relate to Tammy a lot actually. Plus she’s made some lifestyle adjustments so that physical exercise is a big part of her life. I liked how CJ Duggan used that in places throughout That One Summer yet didn’t make the book feel like the entire story or all of Tammy’s changes were due to her physical exercise changes.

Chris didn’t come off to me as the description suggests. I guess there are times when he seems broody and moody, but mostly I think Chris is just a serious and quiet guy. He’s not the life of the party, but that’s totally fine with him. Not everyone can be. He felt genuine and honest. I still don’t have Chris completely figured out. I couldn’t predict his actions or his responses, but that didn’t matter. I enjoyed them anyway.

As happens from time to time, I feel like the description above is a bit misleading. Starting off the description with talking about how "loving Chris would be wrong but oh he can kiss" gave me the impression that Tammy experienced this knowledge prior to the start of the events within That One Summer and that’s not true. Tammy and Chris find themselves in a few situations together that start to spark some romantic tension. And so when they get stuck riding together to the group’s camping trip, it is to be expected that they both learn more about the other and begin to develop an attraction as well as a bond.

There was a section of this book that had Tammy jumping to some conclusions which caused her much mental stress. Obviously we all know what assumptions tend to do. This section wasn’t my favorite part because as an avid reader I know that any assumptions made without absolute fact or proof usually turn out false. But I did have a slight panic attack of “what if” going on at the same time.

Favorite quotes:
-Sometimes I wished I could just let go, just stress less and enjoy myself like the others, but I was always plagued with doubt, with worry. Afraid of not fitting in, which was ironic as I sabotaged every chance of fitting in by constantly stepping aside from everyone.

-I wanted to get to know him, the real him. I didn’t want to dismiss him in petty anger because he didn’t make a move last night…

-“You’re not as invisible as you think.”

That One Summer was an enjoyable read for me. I can’t wait to continue the series. I’m not happy that Stan and Ringer only have novellas, but I do hope to read those at some point. I had a few small frustrations, but I could relate to Tammy and Chris was simply a loveable character once I got to know him better. That One Summer gets 4 Stars from me. Have you read That One Summer? What did you think? Let me know!

Chris and Tammy's story was absolutely wonderful. Everyone else's reviews are spot on. He's broody, she's not really thinking she fits in. Then she thinks she learns about Ellie and Toby. (Not really what she thinks.) But, she has trouble with knowing what she thinks she know. On the road trip with Chris, she tries to tell him, but he doesn't want to know. They have some very intimate moments but have been derailed because the only condom is no longer where Chris put it (in Toby's shoe that Tammy borrowed and then flung in a tree back at the old campsite). Believe me, the angst was truly something. Finally they reach the end of the road, Chris pulls up to a 5 star resort teasing Tammy that he thinks he'll be able to get a massage here after the long trip. Tammy says no way. They go in and Chris asks at the desk if he can get one. The clerks says only for paying guests. Tammy feels vindicated. but lo and behold, Chris pulls out a piece of paper and says that the reservation was made by Sean Murray. Tammy's jaw drops. She kind of squeals to find out that they will be staying here after all. The rooms are divided up, but Tammy has a problem with Ellie staying in the same suite as she is. She asks Chris to move her and he does. As they are dressing for the party, Ellie fixes Tammy's make-up and Tammy blasts her about her "secret". Ellie is very upset and Tammy doesn't think she'll be able to enjoy the party. The men have all worn suits for the New Year's Eve they are surprised by being let up to a roof top just for them. They get a prime viewing and listening place to watch the festivities. When Toby gets down on one knee in front of Tess, Tammy is super surprised. Everyone thought they were having trouble but Toby was quiet because he was scared that she would say no. Tammy is crying, Tammy says yes. Then Tammy realizes that Ellie wasn't causing trouble. And she goes to find her and ask her forgiveness. Ellie tells her why she was talking with Toby and Tammy is surprised by her admission. All in all, it was a wonderful read. I can't wait for more.

I love the boys of summer series. CJ Duggan is just amazing. I fell in love with Tess and Toby, then Amy and Sean in the second but now I am truly in love with Tammy and Chris.
The story takes place in 1999 before new years. The Onslow boys are planning a camping trip for new years but the girls decided to tag along for the camping trip. Tammy feels like she doesn't belong in the group, the only reason she's included is because she's friends with Amy but that's not it. After battling herself for a day about if she's going on the trip or not she decides at last minute that she's going to go, but when she gets to the Onslow hotel she discovers that everyone has already left. Well, Everyone but one. Chris. Chris and Tammy are forced together riding in a van to meet there friends at a camping ground. As they spend more time together they cant help but feel an attraction for each other.

I loved Chis and Tammy, they are perfect for each other. Chris may seem like such a control freak who doesn't want to have fun or anything but its not the case. Chris loves Tammy deeply, he cares for her in every way. He truly is a caring boyfriend. Chris would be the boyfriend that buys his girlfriend Tampons and chocolates. I love him. He's so sweet.

I also loved seeing Tess and Toby as well as Amy and Sean again. I fell in love with Ringer again. He's hilarious. I found myself smiling whenever I read a part with him. I love Ellie and Adam. I have been waiting for those two to get together. There perfect. I cant wait for there story to come out soon.

This is my favorite one yet! Yeah I know I’ve said that about each one, but I really mean it. These books just keep getting better! That one Summer features Chris Henderson and Tammy Malsaka. Their crazy mixed signals and road trip from hell make for one entertaining read! Their story was the best yet. All the angst. All the matchmaking and the heat that these two generated...WOW.
I seriously love this series! If you’re about my age ( 30 something) then it will mean even more for you to be whisked back to the nineties. These steamy love stories are set in the mid to late 90s. I love the pop culture reference and the music references. It reminds me of my younger days and that just makes these books all the more appealing. You should go out and buy all the books in this series and binge read them the way I have. It’s the best kind of escape. I give That One Summer 5 stars!

Okay, I am all about the brooding bloke, Chris! Definitely Team Chris! I found the chemistry between Tammy and Chris questionable at first, but they grew on me. There was a lot of worry about Toby and Tess on Tammy's part that I think took away from her own love story a bit, but I understand the need for it. I loved this third installment of The Boys of Summer, with the 90's setting, song references, and comical Aussie-infused banter. There is something to be said for an author that can make you laugh out loud...brilliant! I also liked the change in scenery, taking you out of Onslow for this book.
