*Book Review & GIVEAWAY!* Seaside Hearts by Melissa Foster (Seaside Summers Book 2)


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

I swear, I went from being a newbie to the world of Melissa Foster books to a fast mega fan in the course of a few books. This is the second book in the Seaside Summers series and I was so excited to read it!

Melissa has a way of getting you to absolutely fall in love with the characters. They all bring something unique and special to the story and they all compliment each other so well. They make you feel like you could be right there with them.

This book delves into the relationship between Jenna the confident spitfire (unless she's around Pete) and Pete the handyman hunk (aka my new Book Boyfriend). I really REALLY enjoyed seeing Pete's "dark side" come out. It made for some very hot reading! I loved watching the Jenna/Pete story unfold.

As with the other Melissa Foster books I've read I had a hard time putting it down. I can't wait to see what's next for the Seaside girls!
