The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.


Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

I don't know how Melissa Foster does it.  Everything she writes, including this book, always draws me in.  I couldn't put the book down.  In fact, I've learned to not start one of her books unless I know that I can devote enough time to read the whole thing.  Once you get started, you won't be able to put Seaside Hearts down.  Her books are so real, and really delve into what people think and feel.  You know those things that you think in your head and don't really voice or I guess it could be just be me.

It is so funny because this book reminded me so much of me and my husband.  I practically had to hit him over the head to let him know that I liked him.  It is always difficult when you are friends and start having more feelings for your friend.  You don't want to lose their friendship if they don't feel the same as you.  Melissa does a wonderful job of portraying this and also dealing with some of the difficulties that people face with their families.

Believe me, you will love this book and all of Melissa Foster's books.  While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone book.  However, this book is for mature audiences due to some of the adult situations.  It is hot and steamy and will leave you wanting for more.  Beware, though, her books are addictive.  I give this book 5 stars.
