After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he’s misinterpreted their budding relationship.
Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn—and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the sinfully hot artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.
When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the heat sizzling between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, and late-night fantasies become passionate realities, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.
What better way to spend a hot summer day than visiting friends from Melissa Foster's Seaside Summers? As the heat rises, I'm sure we all wish we were chunky dunking with the girls. I know I was... Wishing, that is. I'm not brave enough to dunk anything, chunky or otherwise. As with all of my reviews on Melissa's wonderful books, I picked one word that I felt best describes Seaside Lovers. The word of the day is... Destiny. Although it can describe just about every book that Melissa has written, destiny and fate play a big role in this one. When you think about it, Parker was destined to meet Bert. Not only does he help a struggling 18 year old, it turns out that he guided her on a deeper level at the end of the book. Parker and Grayson were destined to meet. After months of emailing each other, it is obvious that they were meant to be together. I love that about Melissa's books. I love that each of her characters have a perfect mate in the world. Whether they've met them yet or not, you know that every one of them will have their moment to shine. It makes for a lot of reading, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Yet another fabulous book from an author that has definitely become one of my favorites.
