Voted Beck Valley Books Reviewers Favorite Mini Series from the Love in Bloom Series 

SEASIDE SUMMERS joins 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.


Fall in love with Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass in Seaside Nights, the fifth book in the Seaside Summers series!

Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She’s happy as can be, preparing the shop for its grand opening and renting a cottage in the Seaside community while renovations to her new apartment are being completed. The only thing missing is the one thing she longs for, and has no control over—love.

Sawyer Bass, a professional boxer, plays his guitar at a local bar to escape the painful reality of his father’s deteriorating health and a recent health warning of his own. But when he spots a stunning brunette across the room, escaping reality goes out the window, and the beautiful woman becomes the focus of his next song—and maybe even the rest of his life.

When Sawyer walks into Sky’s tattoo shop and sees the woman from the bar—Sky—the chemistry between them is instant. Sawyer is everything Sky could ever hope for in a man. He’s honest, loving, sensitive, and potently virile—but boxing goes against everything Sky believes in. The closer they become, the more she realizes that her alpha boxer is waging his own emotional battle—only the battle she thinks he’s waging isn’t the one that threatens to tear them apart.

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

I am a big fan of Melissa Foster’s Seaside Summer series and was happy to receive a copy of Seaside Nights in exchange for a honest review.  This is book #25 in the Love in Bloom series and book #5 in the Seaside Summer series and like its predecessor it can be read as a stand-alone.
What I like about this series and any book of Melissa Foster for that matter is that her stories are usually centered on real life issues. Her characters are easy to relate to as a result.  They each face challenges and issues that I am sure most readers can identify with.

Seaside Nights tells the story of Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass. I adore them both. Sky a professional tattoo artist is a free spirit and a lover of poetry. She is still reeling from the loss of her mother, which had some adverse effects on her and her family. She was able to overcome those effects and has now realized her dream that of owning her own tattoo parlour.  Sawyer is a professional boxer who writes and plays music.  His main focus was on winning his up and coming fight so that he would be able to pay his father’s medical expenses.  However, getting involved in one more fight may prove fatal.  Sawyer is faced with the difficult choice of fighting and winning to assist his father or not fighting at all.

“Now it’s like looking in a mirror, at what could happen to me if I get hit in the head again. Now I hear his slowed voice telling me to give it up and follow my heart to something else. Now I’m standing between two rivals playing Russian roulette. On one side is my father’s care and quality of life. On the other is something I haven’t thought about with any great significance- my own well-being.”

I believed that these two were perfect for each other. They were both caring and sensitive individuals. The attraction between them was evident from the start. The romance developed rather quickly, but it was evident that cared deeply for each other.  Things were going great until Sky discovered Sawyer’s real profession.  Sky hates fighting and as such was not comfortable with Sawyer’s profession. Will she be able to live with his career choice or will she force him to choose between her and his career?

This is a beautiful story of love, family and friendships. It shows how deep the bonds of family and friends can go.  It depicts the difficult choices that we are faced with on our journey through life and the impact that the decisions made have on our lives and those close to us.  It also shows that if we open our hearts and our minds, we will discover that there is usually more than one solution to problems we believe are unsolvable.

This was an engaging read from start to finish. It was well written and it’s sure to take you on an emotional ride.  I definitely would recommend this title to lovers of romance.  If you have never read a book by Melissa Foster then you can start here and then you will understand why I and others like myself enjoy her stories so much.
