Fall in love with Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass in Seaside Nights, the fifth book in the Seaside Summers series by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster! 

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.

If you've seen my previous reviews for the many Melissa Foster books I've read (and loved), then you'll know that I like to pick one word that I think best describes the book I'm reviewing. I love Melissa's writing. Her book are always a win for me, so by picking the one word changes it up for each review. With Seaside Nights, there was actually a word that appeared early on in the book and it stuck with me throughout. I felt it perfectly described the different relationships that appear. The word for Seaside Nights is ethereal. Seaside Nights was exquisite. The budding relationship between Sawyer and Sky was delicate. At times, it was gentle and romantic. When their love was going strong, it was also raw and powerful. As with a lot of Melissa's couples, fate played a large role in their meeting. It was kismet and their hearts don't take long to fall so much in love. Sky was a mixture of carefree and strong minded. She's artistic and loves Sawyer's beautifully written words. She is devoted to her family and friends. What is perfect about her being with Sawyer is that he is the same, yet different where it counts. He too is devoted to his family and his relationship with his father nearly broke my heart. He's artistic, but it is his growing love for Sky that brings out his carefree nature. In return, Sawyer helps Sky toughen up a bit. Seaside Nights was an amazing addition to the world that Melissa has created and I'm so excited that Sky's brothers will be getting their own books in the future.
