It could be nostalgia but this book spoke to me. Sirena goes to a beach town in Rhode Island for the summer while her parents get divorced. She is not sure how she will handle going back to a new life when she has to return to Texas. What she doesn't know is that she's beginning her new life in Rh...

I bought this on a whim as Amazon was having a Kindle e-book sale and I was trying to find a new swoony boy. (Laughing at Kassiah.) I was hoping for a sunny, beach-centered teen romance. What we have here instead is different. There were hints of the paranormal in the summary and I was thinking "a...

As I was headed to Burlington, Vermont for vacation, I thought bringing The Lifeguard would be the perfect light hearted summer read. It is a perfect summer read, but it is anything but light hearted. Sirena is being shipped off to her Aunt Ellie’s house for the summer because her parents back in...

Rating: 2/5 I went into this book expecting something rather different than what I encountered. It could be a good thing or a bad thing. Or it could be both. It was bad in this case but not because it wasn’t what I expected, but because it was not pull well together to make me believe Sirena’s, ou...

The Lifeguard started off as the perfect contemporary I just needed. A troubled girl because of her parents divorce, a cute, actually perfect, lifeguard she meets at the beach, and the setting is the beach! THE BEACH! The problem is it kind of started to slow pace in the middle, which bored me fo...

When I first read the synopsis for this book, I was expecting a run of the mill story about a sad girl who goes off to the beach, meets a cute boy and they fall in “love” with each other. I generally enjoy books with that typical story line because they are cute and easy to read. That was not wha...

The Lifeguard by Deborah Blumenthal ISBN: 9781453247334 This book first appealed to me because of the water scene and then the words Rhode Island in the summary of the book. I am from there and wanted to read this to find out if I knew of any place they spoke of. Love the water and the shells so th...

I've recently read a whole plethora of paranormals so I fancied a nice light romance for my next read. To fit the picture I chose The Lifeguard. A summer romance about a hot lifeguard. What could go wrong? The background of the story is that Sirena has to move away for the summer while her parents...

This book was definitely way different than I was thinking it would be. Not to say that it was misleading, just different. Right off the bat we're introduced to a plain old teen who moves to Rhode Island to start anew after a family break-up. Being in a new surrounding she meets Pilot, a quiet lif...

It's an unsettled summer for Sirena. Back in Texas, her family's splitting apart, but here in Rhode Island, at the cottage of her free-spirited aunt, it's a different world. There are long days at the beach and intriguing encounters with him. Pilot. He's the lifeguard with shamanic skills. He bot...

Torn between 2 and 3 stars. I was expecting a summer-of-my-youth romance, which I got but...it took a turn for the supernatural with Brazilian/Amazonian hand wavy-primitive-mystical hoo-haa that...I just couldn't buy into. I like my magic more "scientific", if that makes sense...though I can appr...

Arrive the same. Leave different. Back in Texas, Sirena's summer was unsettled so he parents who are getting a divorce planned on shipping her to Rhode Island and spend the summer with her aunt. She easily begins settling in Rhode Island with new friends and new surroundings. She spends most of h...

I'm only a few chapters in and already, I'm super excited, like bad-things-will-happen-if-I-put-this-book-down kind of excitement. The last time I got this crazy about a romance is when I read Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles or maybe when I read Beautiful Disaster, possibly when I read The Ir...

I honestly don't know why I like this book so much. You'll see in my more detailed parts of the review that the book is lacking quite a bit of stuff, but for some reason, I really, really like it. Back-Story: I purchased this as a nookbook during the Cyber Monday sales on a whim. It looked interes...

Adorable, semi chaotic and obsessed, this book was a quick and really good read. It made you think about things, why they happen and how history keeps repeating itself without even knowing it. We meet Sirena, who was just shipped off to Rhode Island as her parents are at home dealing with their d...

http://freak-ya-tastic.blogspot.com/2... This book is a one shot I had the opportunity to read thanks to the publisher and Netgalley. I don't really know how to qualify this book. Yes, it's a young-adult story that can easily be read by adults, yes there's a little romance in it and yes the main ch...

My Thoughts: I received this book from the publisher from Netgalley in exchange for review. This book really surprised me! I wasn't quite sure what I was going to get when I saw this one, thinking it would be a great read for the summer, I decided to check it out. I really enjoyed it, it was quick...

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: First off I'd like to thank netgalley and the publisher of this book for giving me a chance to review this. I went into this book after simply having read the cover and...

I received an ARC of this book through the publisher on Netgalley. The recommended age for The Lifeguard is thirteen and up, I must agree that this is a perfect book for that age group. It was really cute, super sweet, but ultimately a little too young for me. Sirena is a sixteen year old girl, an...

What a great setting, A 16 year old girl spending the summer with her aunt in Rhode Island on the beach. Sirena’s parents back in Texas are preparing to sell the house and move into two different homes. You feel empathy for Sirena and her depression is understandable as she faces a hard reality o...
