    Downloaded for free from Amazon.co.uk This was a YA contemporary romance novella. Bayleigh came across as quite immature and selfish in this book, and she constantly moaned about her sort-of boyfriend - Ian, and about her mobile phone being taken away from her, and didn’t seem to really care all that much about anyone else at all.

The storyline in this was about Bayleigh being sent to stay with her grandparents for the summer after behaving badly, and basically finding some other boy to fixate on instead. It was a little predictable in places, but it wasn’t a bad story, and the new guy, Jace, seemed fairly sweet. The ending to this was fairly happy, but I am interested to see what happens in the rest of the series. 6 out of 10

    Parts of this story were really cute. The writing isn't bad and could be improved with a little more polishing. I just couldn't really get into this because the main character was not very likable to me. Bayleigh was constantly complaining about not having her phone and how without it she had no life. I understand that she was used to having it, but her complaints were overboard. And she wasn't doing anything to try and improve her relationship with her mother.

She kept pushing, making trust impossible. Bayleigh and Jade were cute together, but it was a bit rushed aand kind of silly. I hope that in the next book there is more done to build the relationship. And Bayleigh really just needs to learn to be her own person. She did get a little better toward the end, but this book wasn't long enough for me to ever come to like her.

    What happens when your parent can't handle you anymore? For Bayleigh it means getting shipped off to her grandparent's farm in the middle of nowhere and worse without any form of communication. Bayleigh has pushed her mom far too many times from hanging out and getting serious with her boyfriend Ian who has been to juvie and is in and out of trouble, sneaking out to go to parties and plain old disobeying her mother. Her mother has had it up to here with her and has decided it's time for Plan B. What happens when your parent can't handle you anymore? For Bayleigh it means getting shipped off to her grandparent's farm in the middle of nowhere and worse without any form of communication. Bayleigh has pushed her mom far too many times from hanging out and getting serious with her boyfriend Ian who has been to juvie and is in and out of trouble, sneaking out to go to parties and plain old disobeying her mother. Her mother has had it up to here with her and has decided it's time for Plan B. This summer vacation, she has shipped Bayleigh off to spend time with her parents at their farm. During this time, Bayleigh meets the new next-door neighbor who is about her age or closer to Ian's. Jace is a professional Motocross rider and has been tearing up his new property which was left to him by his grandad. You see he is on a recovery break as well. As the novel goes along, we do read as Jace, and Bayleigh get close but what will happen when Ian decides to make a surprise visit to the farm and meets Jace? I have to admit; I found this YA novel a bit childish in parts as both Bayleigh and Ian both annoyed me as they were acting like spoilt brats. For Bayleigh, it's like seriously do you think you are that entitled that you can do whatever the heck you want ? and Ian, what sort of guy does it make you if you think you can play with people's feelings - seriously? Jace - do you think it's a good idea to get into the middle of another love triangle as that's what got you blacklisted from a few major Motocross sponsors, etc. Maybe it's my age, but this YA novel annoyed me. I think too that it is more suited to the age of 12-15+ years. So if you are looking for a good book for your tween to read, then Summer Unplugged series by Amy Sparling is a good place to start.

    I liked Summer Unplugged. Yes it was a short story that I felt would've connected me more to the characters had there been more length, but it was still interesting nonetheless. I mean, how many of us can disconnect ourselves from our cell phones or computer? Not many, I think. This story is a good representation of how attached one teenager is to technology and how naive some girls can be with unhealthy relationships, but how nice it is to finally have that wake up call.

This story is a good representation of how attached one teenager is to technology and how naive some girls can be with unhealthy relationships, but how nice it is to finally have that wake up call. Bayleigh was childish and complacent at times, even did silly things because she was blinded by her crush. Bayleigh is like most young girls her age and I thought the character depicted the right attitude. I wasn't expecting her to be super mature or anything that would have me wondering if I was reading about someone in her thirties. That to me was good in itself. Her reaction to the uncool request of her crush was realistic, because as much as we're reading and shaking our heads and calling her stupid, girls do that a lot in society and put themselves in bad situations. Thankfully, nothing like what I feared would happen to her from that mistake did, and I was happy she had an epitome while enduring her so-called punishment of spending the summer with her grandparents and away from all her gadgets. In comes this other guy who is by far more appealing and more deserving of any girl's interest. He basically helps Bayliegh to realize she's worth far more than what she settles for with her crush and I was beyond relief when she finally got it together. Though, there were times I wanted to slap her silly for actually considering to ignore his crappy personality and ill-treatments. Anyhoo, that aside, I'm happy she found happiness with the right kind of guy for her. Someone that will most definitely treat her right. Overall, it was a cute, fast-paced and enjoyable story. Again, it could've been lengthier, but I did like it and am so going to continue the series. If you're into YA contemporary with sweet romances you'll enjoy this one.

    Actual Rating - 2.5 Bayleigh really annoyed me at the start, and even though she got a bit better towards the end, I just couldn't warm to her enough to like her. This wasn't an awful read, but I felt bored quite a few times, so I didn't love it. I don't think I'll bother with the rest of the series.

    2.5 stars. This book wasn't as cheesy as I thought it would be. It was more just, I don't know, kind of pathetic? Or at least the main character was. I wasn't a big fan of Bayleigh. She did stupid stuff and then didn't understand why her mother was punishing her. She used, like, everyone to get what she wanted. She was pretty much just a no-personality bitch tbh. The romance was fast but it wasn't rushed, which is what I think I liked about this book. I mean, it wasn't very spectacular - there def 2.5 stars.

I mean, it wasn't very spectacular - there definitely could have been a lot more events building up to their relationship - but it wasn't super cliche or cheesy, just boring. It kind of reminded me of C.J. Duggan's 'Summer' series, (but like no where near as good) so maybe if you read that and you're kind of missing the feelings it gave you, you could start with this series? They're definitely quick and easy to read. This book left no impact on my life. That is all.

I do not feel like she learned anything by being grounded. Yes she went to stay with her grandparents in the middle of nowhere with no technology, but she still found time to hang out with a boy. And now, instead of being hung up on Ian, she is hung up on Jace, and I didn't really see any character development. Overall, it was a cute, fast-paced and enjoyable story.

    Alright. (view spoiler)[ As I can imagine anyone will tell you who's read this book, Bayleigh is extremely annoying at the beginning. Like almost enough so that I stopped reading.

She was still kind of annoying at the beginning of meeting him, like being WAY overly flirty and 'batting her eyelashes' at him (do girls actually still do that?). But as the book went on, she got less annoying and it was actually pretty good. Favorite part would be the carnival scene (cliche, I know). I will probably read the next one soon! 3/5 stars. :) (hide spoiler)]

    This is really short story. I loved the writing but what bothered me was how I couldn't connect with the characters at all. Bayleigh seemed too self-centered and obsessive. Jace was all OOC. And because it was so short, things happen quickly without reason. I don't like the ending. I wish it ended with a cliffhanger so that it build more tension between Jace and Bayleigh.

    I found that I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. I thought that the characters we're likeable, especially Jace:P. The relationship between Jace and Bayliegh was adorable!<3 Overall it was a light and easy read and just what I needed:)

    I listened to the audiobook and I love this narrator. She brought a lot of personality to this fun story. A cute beginning to what is just the beginning of Bayleigh's story. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment.

For someone who's life depends on her phone and facebook, the only way she can contact her friends and her sort-of boyfriend, this appears to be the most boring summer ever. But is it? Or maybe, the new neighbour next door is going to change this summer for her? My Views When I had just read the blurb, I started looking forward to this read. This past week, I finally started it as a buddy read in a group. This book was a fine read for me, not too good, neither too bad. It lacked all the excitement I hoped it'd have. And most importantly, the obsession of Bayleigh for her cellphone kind of gets on my nerve! Take this for example: "I have never been somewhere for so long without at least my cell phone to keep me company. With it, I could text my friends, check my email, play games. Without it I am truly, completely alone. I miss home. I even miss my brother." And according to my estimation, this was just three days after she had been sent away. I mean what?! I would've liked it better if the author had told us a bit more about Jace, the boy-next-door. We literally don't know any of his back story till we finish 59% of the story. The last chapter was really my favourite, as something was finally happening. Won't give away any spoilers, but according to me, that's when the real story begins. So that is why, despite all my problem with Bayleigh's cell phone obsession, I'll be reading the next books in the series. Just a one time read.

How could she assume that Ian was her boyfriend when their relationship just tip-toed along that line? How could she think that Jace was cute when she had not gotten over Ian if she was so attached to that imaginary boyfriend of hers? It only means that Bayleigh was fickle in her choice of boyfriends. Before she was grounded by her mother, she was with Ian. Next, when she moved to live with her grandparents, she was eyeing Jace. When summer was almost over and it was time for her to move back to her hometown, she wanted to go back to Ian even after she knew that Ian might not be true to her. After Ian showed up unexpectantly and she saw that Jace was coming with a flower in his hand, she shooed Ian away and turned back to Jace. The story was only acceptable overall; it can't be said to be a good one.

    As soon as I started reading Summer Unplugged, I was like “holy crap, I am in teenager hell!” Bayleigh (horrible spelling) most definitely sounds like an authentic teen who thinks the world is out to get her and believes that her cellphone is her lifeline to….well, life.

Even after her mom catches her sending a half-naked photo to her kind of boyfriend, Bayleigh just cannot stand to be without that phone! But her mom sends her off to her Grandparent’s for the summer, where there is nothing around but crops and cattle. And a hottie named Jace. Summer Unplugged was okay. I did find Bayleigh annoying, even if I found her completely realistic. But she really does mention missing her phone on practically every other page. It’s not like I expected her to do a 180 in these 120 pages, but it was a bit much. I was glad that she did find better ways to spend her time, but the romance felt really rushed. Especially with that cliffhanger ending. I don’t think I care enough about Bayleigh to want to know what comes next for her upon returning home. Hopefully not more sexting though.

I gave it 2 stars because the plot had potential and if it was developed the right way ,without rushing everything and using too many simple sentences , and to be honest the main character reminded me of myself when I was thirteen to early fourteen(though she,as far as I understood was 16).It sounded extremely familiar .All the negative comes from the fact that the so called romance was undeveloped to the point that at one moment they were talking about their ex-es and at the other they were like in love . Do not recommend this book just because I doubt that its shortness can bring any emotion (maybe other that frustration with the main character but that wasn't a big problem for me as I said) and joy to the reader.

Bayleigh, at times I connected with her but most of the time I was annoyed by her teenage obsession of a boy who wouldn't commit at home but maybe because I'm no longer a teenager. Jace was a sweet character, a reformed isolated almost bad boy who knew how respect and treat women. Overall a quick lighthearted easy read

Her “sort of” boyfriend Ian never treated her the way Jace treats her and she keeps wondering how this relationship will work and will it last by the time summer is over. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the story. It was very light read with adorable kiss scenes that made me wish I was a teenager again. This novella wasn’t perfect but for a freebie, it was worth it.

    I liked Summer Unplugged, it was an easy read, but that was it really. Bayleigh could be quite annoying at times which put me off.

    I had a hard time enjoying this book, since I found Bayleigh very annoying. Towards the very end of the story I started to like her a little bit, but it was a little too late for me. Jace was surprisingly nice and I liked him. I think he's what saved my interest in this book. I'm not sure if I'll continue with this series, but if the next one goes free I might give it a read.

    It was quite short but an easy read. I didn't really like the main character at first, because she was a bit self-centered but I could definitely see a change in her after she was shipped to her grandparents house. She was kinder and finally realized what a jackass Ian was (at last I hope). I really liked Jace. He was charming :)

    Two teens, met as a punishment. Sent from all she knows, the main character is forced to live with her Grandparents with no electronics. Out of her control, she loses her boyfriend back home and picks up a new one, one who treats her as a Queen, instead of a Begger.

    Up until I read chapter 3, I truly thought I was going to hate this book. I made it to chapter 5 and was like, okay, I’m going to read a little more, there may be some hope here. After chapter 6, I was hooked. What I love about this is that even though it’s almost your boy next door kind of book, the author gets to the point. There’s not 10 chapters dragging out one thing, another 7 dragging out an explanation for the previous chapters, and then the good stuff happens in the last 2 chapters.

I could not put this book down. I literally read it while getting my car serviced, in my kids carpool line, and then finished it in bed. At times, you I wanted to reach through the book and just shake some sense into the MC, Bayleigh. There was enough in the book to wear you can sort of guess what’s gong to happen but enough mystery that you don’t know HOW it’s going to happen. I am definitely going to read the remaining 6-7 books in the series and was excited to hear one of the books is from Jace’s POV!! Very good and quick read!!

Bayleigh totally thinks her life is gonna suck the summer at her grandparents house until she meets the boy next door, Jace. Once Bayleigh and Jace start to hang out they begin to fall in love with each other. Jace was a professional motorcross racer until he was arrested. Jace gets an offer to train young racers at a town called Mixon, 30 minutes away front Bayleighs hometown. I have absolutely loved this book series. It's always a quick go to book to read while out of town or on a trip somewhere. I love how they placed Jace at a town near her home after the summer. I can not wait to continue reading this series. Even though the book is written for the age group of 12-18 year olds, i've seen adults shared the same joy as I do towards this book.
