Summer Crush

sumercrush-editedTitle: Summer Crush
Published by: Six de los Reyes, Tara Frejas, Jay E. Tria
Release Date: April 8, 2017
Genre: ,
Pages: 163

When life, love, and rock and roll come together on the sandy beaches of La Union for music festival Summer Crush, expect nothing less than the crashing of lips, bodies, and waves against the shore, against each other, and against your soul.

Allow these three tales of love to take you away for an unforgettable weekend.

Ana’s life as a corporate warrior, graduate student, and girlfriend to indie rock band boy Miki starts to spin out of control, and she wonders if it is love that has to give. (You Only Need Reminding, Jay E. Tria)

Newly reinstated EG Project roadie Filipina Legaspi flies with her band back to the Philippines for Summer Crush, unaware of the emotional waves that engulf her when she sets foot in the beaches of San Juan, La Union. (Almost There, Tara Frejas)

Rhys has three problems: Arabella, the theme song with the Trainguy, and singing live for the first time—and now also on that list is Isaiah, sea-sweet Mango Rum kisses, and long overdue decisions she’s intent on avoiding. (Ocean Eyes, Six de los Reyes)

Great read that made me long for wild beachside revels as though they were true memories (IDK about you but my youthful beach parties ended with regrets and a wicked hangover and aren't things I remember too fondly.) Each story has a different tone and character but all three blend so seamlessly together that I could almost taste the salt in the air, listen to the waves on the shore and maybe fall in love with a handsome rock star.

Bianca Mori, author of One Night

I call this collab 'The Powerhouse Trio'. Yep, I'm calling this that. Jay, Tara and Six just have mad skills in writing, peeps! And for them to come up with one music festival where all their music/band-related characters meet is just mind-blowing.

Miel, author and #romanceclass reader

Summer Crush is a stand-alone, but I've read all the recommended reading for this - Songs to Get Over You (and the whole playlist series), Scandalized, Feels Like Summer, and Just For The Record - and I believe that made this more enjoyable for me. You get the full experience when you read all those other books, and you'll be awestruck at how these three authors made their universes collide. You'll appreciate all the cameos and the inside jokes more. They've put so much work into making their characters believable that sometimes I forget they don't really exist.

Veron, editor and book blogger

This is one of my recent reads and I love this bec its literally three of my favorite authors merging universes together for this amazing beach music festival weekend, and I NEED some getaway time for myself, even if it’s just through fiction! Hah!

H. Bentham, author of The Other Story (from Start Here)

What if they didn't work well together? What if I didn't like these authors' universes being connected to one another? What if this anthology made me 'see' which author I liked best? They do, I did, it didn't. The authors know their strengths and their limits, and work their way around them and with one another quite flawlessly. I enjoyed each story individually, and the anthology as a whole.

Second Wave Summer

Title: Second Wave Summer
Published by: Six de los Reyes, Tara Frejas, Jay E. Tria
Release Date: May 19, 2018
Genre: ,
Pages: 107

All roads lead back to beachside music festival Summer Crush for another weekend of high waves, rock & roll, and the promise of summer romance. 

On any given day, Michael Brian doesn’t need to do much to hit the right notes with a girl, but there’s something about this day—and something about this girl—that’s got him out of tune. (A Taste of Summer, Six delos Reyes)

Indie filmmaker Datu puts on his dusty event videographer hat for Summer Crush. But memories of a love he let slip away resurface from every corner of this surf town. Now what he thought would be an easy job just isn't so easy anymore. (Rushes, Tara Frejas)

Corporate-highflyer-on-vacation Ringo has a question to which cookie bar boss woman Kris has the answer, if only they’d stop getting in each other’s way. (Ask Me Nicely, Jay E. Tria)

I love that Six, Tara and Jay are able to make their universes and characters collide into this one fun and exciting series. I'm very much looking forward to more "Summer Crush" festivals to come in the next 5-10 years!

Mabel, book blogger


What I loved the most about this was its setting and how the setting was cleverly maximized. I haven’t gone to La Union in ages, but reading this book really made me feel like I was there, enjoying my own plate of delicious bagnet (yep, I’m more of a bagnet girl than a champorado fan, sorry), listening to the soothing sounds of waves kissing the shoreline, and enjoying the summer wind in my hair.

Shealea, book blogger

A Taste of Summer is a love story waiting to happen.

Rushes is braving the currents of reality to claim a love worth fighting for.

Ask Me Nicely is love winning over the technicalities that make a relationship complicated.

Love finds you when you least expect it. Love makes a way for two people to meet again. Love hears the truth in your heart and lets you grow.

Second Wave Summer is love doing its magic.

Fay, book blogger and author of All About That Bass (from Summer Feels)

Food is history and culture. It’s home and where we’ve traveled. Food can be the catalyst for character reveals and plot shenanigans. We thought we’d make it easier for everyone and set our stories in a food park—the perfect place to hang out, eat the best food, and find HEA.

What If We Fall In Love?

Cover for What If We Fall In Love?Title: What If We Fall In Love?
Published by: Tara Frejas
Release Date: December 31, 2022
Genre: , ,
Pages: 180

What If We Fall In Love? is a collection of stories about what ifs that get answered, what ifs that end with happy ever after.

What if you had a chance at love?

Let it be known that Manuel La Rosa had always found Jamia Damiles beautiful, and not only in a breathtaking, how-are-you-even-real kind of way. He also found her smart, competent, and funny—you know, completely out of his league.

But when she agrees to be his fake girlfriend for his cousin’s wedding, Manuel slowly realizes Jamia might be within his reach after all.

What if you took the first step?

Starting a food truck business isn’t easy—just ask Paz Laban, who almost burned down her truck on opening day. Thankfully, help was nearby, and it came to save the day wearing a tight shirt and a familiar face.

They call him Coby now, but to her, he will always be Jako: the shy and lanky son of the Galarosas, who lived across their street in her hometown in Bicol. Little does she know that to him, she’s the unattainable crush…and now he’s ready to shoot his shot.

What if you choose to be brave?

Five years ago, college friends Aki Buenaventura and Bonnie Salvador made an unwritten pact to get married if they find themselves single at thirty-five. It all seemed like a forgotten promise until an ISP fail leads work-from-home employee Bonnie to knocking on Aki’s door and asking to spend a few days at his apartment.

When proximity and the rush of fond memories force Aki to confront his long repressed feelings, will he finally muster the courage to take the leap?
