Only This Summer by Radclyffe

A sweet and entertaining romance in typical Radclyffe style

A big city doctor meets a ranger at a summer camp near Lake George – a perfect setting for a summer love affair. But as it’s usually the case, things turn out differently than expected.


As an ER doctor, Lily is burned out and disillusioned after long years of the pandemic so she escapes to the summer camp run by her longtime friend Sarah. She hopes to recharge her batteries and deal with only minor health issues without stress.

Chase is Sarah’s younger sister, who must battle her own demons. She loves her job as a ranger. And she loves women, for short hot affairs and before it gets serious, she lets them go.

The story, as we have come to expect from Radclyffe, is fluidly written and very entertaining. A light romance without much drama. I liked the surrounding, the descriptions of camp life, and also about Chase’s work. The characters are exciting, interesting, and likable, not only the MCs but also some of the secondary characters. Sparks fly with Lily and Chase from the first moment, but the tension between them is built up for a few days before the first sex scene occurs. As always, it’s hot and much more emotional than the women realize or want to acknowledge. I liked that because I’m not a fan of insta-love.

What I personally missed is the depth of the story and also the characters. There is so much potential, not only with Chase and Lily’s story but also Sarah, Natalie, and the teenagers Marty and Ford who piqued my interest. I would have wanted to know more about their own stories and experiences. But who knows, maybe we’ll get to read more about them in a sequel.

Overall, a sweet and entertaining romance without angst and drama. 3.5⭐️
