Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, and determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his plans.

From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sensual, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the blond beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down.

In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

Sorry Kurt and Leanna... Move over Bella and Caden... Nice try Pete and Jenna... Jamie and Jessica are now my favorite Seaside couple. That may or may not still be true after Amy and Tony's book, but for now, they are my favorite. As with every Melissa Foster book, I was madly in love with this story. From the moment Jessica conked Jamie over the head with her phone, I was right there with them on their journey towards romance. Well, not literally right there with them because that would just be awkward in the bedroom... You know what I mean. To me, the best thing about these books is how accepting and inviting Melissa's characters are. We see it with the Bradens whenever they welcome a new family member into their fold. In Seaside Sunsets, we see it with the girls. At first, Jessica is afraid that they won't accept her, that she'll always be an outsider. Not only do they prove her wrong, but Jessica becomes an honorary Seaside Sister the moment Jamie shows interest. I loved that Jessica is brave. She has no problem wearing a thong bikini in public, a fact that forces Jamie to his knees. She's all for chunky dunking in the middle of the night. In fact, she's pretty much up for anything the girls come up with. In Bella's eyes, Jessica is corruptible. As for Jamie, he's just a flat out sweetheart. He's the quiet one of the group, but he's all for risque and he just can't seem to keep his hands off Jessica. I love that he goes all out to make her happy and make her realize that she's loved. They were just perfect together. *swoon*

Can I just live in a Melissa Foster book? Please? Melissa...there must be a Braden for me. I was having so much fun being inside Melissa's world, that I dived right into Seaside Sunsets the moment I finished the latest Braden book. I can't get enough of her books. After watching poor Amy dance around Tony for the previous Seaside books, I am so looking forward to their story next. I just better get caught up on my sleep first... *grin*
