Sky Davis is fed up with boyfriend Grant taking her for granted, and when she comes home to find him wearing a girl, Sky suspects the relationship is over. She takes an unscheduled vacation and leaves the life (and guy) she hates behind.

Rock star Dylan Morgan is struggling with fame and infamy, sick of his life being controlled by other people. Dylan cuts his hair and walks away from his role as lead singer of Blue Phoenix, leaving behind chaos and speculation.

Outside the English seaside town of Broadbeach, their cars and worlds collide.

Sky decides Dylan is an arrogant guy with too many tattoos, and Dylan is amused by the smart-mouthed girl with no idea who he is. Dylan and Sky soon discover they've travelled to Broadbeach for the same reason - to escape from reality and head back to a place with happy childhood memories. Losing themselves in a world where they know nothing about each other, Sky and Dylan begin a holiday romance that soon heats up their rainy English summer.

Fantasies can't last forever, and when reality crashes the party, Sky isn't sure she wants to be more than his 'summer Sky' but Dylan doesn't want to let her go.

Returning to the real world, public scrutiny isn't their only problem. Blue Phoenix lead guitarist, Jem Jones, has a reason for wanting Sky out of Dylan's life, and is determined to come between them. Some things won't stay hidden, even when they're paid to 'go away'. 

In Summer Sky by Lisa Swallow, Sky Davis ventures out to her grandmother’s rental house to forget about her now EX-boyfriend Grant. The last thing she wanted was romance. Rock star Dylan Morgan wants to leave fame behind, escape the paparazzi and his controlling agent by hiding away in the same rental house as Sky. Two completely different worlds and personalities collide under one roof. What good could come from falling for a rock star?
I loved the different personalities Lisa Swallow wrote about in her book and how they interact with one another. Each emotional conflict that arose deepened the plot, having the characters walk a fine line since both are from different lifestyles. The author did a great job showing the difference between the character’s lifestyles and true problems that could arise and threaten to tear apart a relationship.
