Book Blurb:
Jewel has always been able to get the guy she wanted. The starting jock on the football team, the team captain on the basketball team, and the lead swimmer on the swim team. Problem is, she didn't find them the least bit exciting. Was she cold or a she-wolf for guys? Colin thought so, and he'd do anything to bring her down a peg or two. When these two collide on the sandy beach during their mixed up summer vacation, sparks fly, making this a summer neither will forget. 

My Review: Remember that first kiss that made you buckle at the knees, never wanting to say good bye, and wishing your first love would last forever? I do and it was the best feeling in the world the spark of new love! That's what Thundering Luv reminded me of as I read it. I sat reading this story with a huge grin on my face as it had me remembering how all of that felt. Jewel has it all going for her the most popular girl in school boys flock to her like flies to honey but, she doesn't want any of it, all Jewel has ever really wanted is to be in love totally and completely. In stumbles Collin and he is in so deep from the first look that he can think of nothing else. Will Jewel finally find the love she wants or will he turn out to be like all the others? Is Collin willing to give up his heart for Jewel the girl everyone calls the queen of hearts? I am glad I vested the time in reading this book as it made me remember all of those firsts. I hope that L. M. Preston continues this series as I would love to continue my thoughts down memory lane as I read about new and first loves.

 Excerpt #1 -

“I mean, how does your mom do it? Most ladies can’t even find a guy to marry them – my mom is still ‘dating’ my dad and can’t get him to commit. But your mom,” Amy inhaled loudly, “she’s like…hum, like a husband whisperer or something,” Amy laughed.
Jewel lifted her shades to peek out at Amy, “So are you saying guys and dogs are the same?” she jumped up and plopped down on Amy’s butt to tickle Amy’s feet, “You calling my mom a dog trainer,” she giggled.
            Whack! The volleyball hit Jewel on the forehead with such force, she fell backwards. Jewel’s foot hit’s Meg’s drink and red juice splattered all over her white bikini. Amy’s butt went upward to knock Jewel onto the hard deck. Falling back, Jewel’s head hit the wood floor knocking her shades off.
            Jewel tried to catch her breath. Pain and anger became one as she blinked against the glare of the sun. Her eyes meet the dark brown ones of a laughing boy standing above her. A gorgeous guy, but who cared, he’d hit her so hard with his dumb ball, she was seeing stars.
            “You! You! Stupid, don’t you know how to hit a ball?” Jewel struggled to get up, and pushed the boys tanned hand away from her. His unruly long black hair, dark eyes, and full lips cocked up in a smirk made her angrier.
            “I’m trying to help you,” his baritone voice sounded like he was fighting against laughter, and he grasped her hand. His firm muscular shaped arm flexed as he bent to help her.
            Jewel slapped it away, “I don’t want your help you ruined my bathing suit and,” she touched her forehead where a small lump was forming, “put a knot on my head!” She pushed at him and stood up, grabbing the volleyball off the ground. His yummy face taunted her when his eyebrow went up questioning her motive. Then she aimed the ball at his head and missed.
            He ducked, “What was that for?” His laughing eyes turned stormy.
            Waving her hand at him, she stepped forward. “Idiots that hit girls with their,” Jewel slipped back, and tried to get her balance, but the last thing she remembered was him smirking at her as her head hit the floor again.
