Blog Tour For “THE SUMMER OF ’98” By Tay Marley @SmithPublicity @wattpad @tayxwriter

Before Drayton and Dallas, there was Ellie and Leroy . . .

With the prequel to her smash hit The QB Bad Boy and Me, rising star Tay Marley returns to tell the story of Drayton’s parents and the summer that changed everything . . .

Sometimes home isn’t a place, it’s a person. From the moment their eyes met, Ellie knew he would be her destiny. Handsome and ripped, there’s just something about Leroy Lehay, Baylor University’s soon-to-be star quarterback, that makes him impossible to resist.

Consumed by a passion neither one of them can quite understand, Leroy and Ellie spend the summer together. Left senseless and overwhelmed by his touch, Ellie experiences a world of desire she could never have imagined.

Safe in Leroy’s arms, Ellie begins to see a life beyond high school: going to college, starting her own business, having a family. But when life-altering news shakes them to their cores, Leroy and Ellie must discover if their passion is enough to help them get through what might possibly be the greatest challenge of their lives. 

Thank you to Smith Publicity for gifting me this book. All opinions are my own.

Welcome to my stop on THE SUMMER OF ’98 Blog Tour.

I have started to gravitate away from the star rating system, and basically just rate based on my general feelings’s. .

I enjoyed this book, I am new to this genre, and really haven’t read a lot of romance or contemporary, so my review might not be the greatest.

I enjoyed this book, a lot. I have not read the book that this was a prequel to, but now I want to.

I was a highschool student in 1998 so in that aspect this book was already relatable. For me, it was kind of reminiscent of Pretty In Pink, or a trope that was in a lot of books and movies in the 90’s.

Ellie was very naive, very sweet, Leroy was very protective, very strong. They both brought out things in each other that I liked. Their love story was sweet.

Overall, I was impressed with this book and I found myself really enjoying it.
