Seaside Nights Book Review and Giveaway

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
**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My thoughts:

Sky Lacroux has been through a lot in her life, with the death of her mother and her father's alcoholism. Sky is finally getting her feet under her and her life on track. She's purchased her own tattoo parlor and is staying at one the Seaside cottages until the renovations on her apartment are complete.

Sky is a very sensitive soul, who has been VERY protected by her brothers through her life. So when she meets a soulful singer and songwriter, Sawyer Bass seems like the perfect man for Sky. Until she finds out he's a professional boxer. Sky can't believe that her cat would kill a mouse, let alone one human fighting another. Is Sawyer's boxing a deal-breaker?

I love getting updates on the Seaside gang (and their pregnancies!) and I love the updates to the pranks between Bella and Theresa. The group at Seaside is such an amazing group of friends, and the addition of their loved ones makes their stories so much better!

While I love all of Melissa Foster's books, this story is one of my favorites. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Laguna Nights Book Review and Giveaway

New Release....
Madison Alcott was back in her hometown, caring for her sick mom and working long hours at the best resort in Laguna Beach. She never imagined she'd return to the place where she became famous on the hit reality TV show Laguna Nights, and the place where she was humiliated on national television. Fortunately, the past had stayed tucked away until her old high school boyfriend appeared in the lobby.

Josh Welsh was a superstar by age eighteen, the bad boy break-out star of Laguna Nights. Since then, his star had lost its shine and he barely was holding onto his Hollywood status. When he was asked to host a new reality travel show, he jumped at the chance. The only problem was the first episode was shooting in Laguna Beach. Of all the reasons Josh didn't want to return home, he hadn't even imagined the worst scenario: running into Madison "Holly" Alcott.

Josh's connection to Madison was still as strong as her anger at his betrayal. When the new reality series forces them together, they must face Laguna Nights past and present, and navigate a journey where nothing is as it seems.

My thoughts:

Madison and Josh had a magical love story with a horrible ending in high school, with the whole world (at least those that watch reality TV) watching. Since then, Madison has traveled the world and moved back to her hometown to take care of her sick mother. Josh has struggled in Hollywood and has become a washed up actor. So when Josh has a chance to star in a new travel TV show, he jumps at the chance, even though it takes him back to Laguna Beach.

Little did he know that he would run into Madison, and their past would be pushed front and center again, with a new reality TV show. Can Madison get over her feelings of betrayal and see Josh as the boy he was? Do these two former lovers have a chance at happiness?

I love Ms. Rouda's storytelling, and the reality TV twist is a very fun one. It definitely made me happy to never be on a reality TV show! I also loved meeting a lot of the peripheral characters, and I'm looking forward to reading those stories in the future.
