TresSugarSource: Summer Romance Movies to Stream on Netflix
Ah, Summer love. It seems the hotter the season, the steamier the romance. There are all kinds of Summer-set romances, and most of us have experienced one kind or another. It could be a coming-of-age Summer camp crush, a hot and heavy vacation fling, a forbidden post-college relationship, or a breezy beachside hookup. Many of these Summer romances have also been portrayed on screen in films and are available to watch whenever you want to relive the thrill of Summer love. If you're looking to cool off at home with a movie about these seasonal relationships - which sometimes last past the sunny days of Summer - then check out these films available on Netflix streaming.
