Publisher's Summary

When tragedy strikes, best friends turn to insatiable lovers...but harsh realities may tear them apart. 

Harborside Nights is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real contemporary romance series featuring a group of friends who have known one another for years as "summer" friends and come together after college to build their lives. They're tough, edgy, and accepting - most of the time. 

Catching Cassidy is told in first-person POV and written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice people have come to love from New York Times best-seller Melissa Foster.  

In Catching Cassidy:

Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend, Cassidy Lowell, in tow to deal with his parents' death and to try to figure out his next step.

Six-foot-two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands - but that's what best friends are for, isn't it? Having each other's backs. There was never any doubt she would accompany him to his family's summer home - but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along?

It's impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt's past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn't want to lose the one woman who's shared his past and owns his heart.

Characters from the Love in Bloom series will appear in the Harborside Nights audiobooks. Wyatt is the cousin of Max Armstrong (Lovers at Heart, the Bradens).

My Thoughts: 

Audiobook Review:  I love listening to Melissa Foster’s books.  Her narrators are chosen to be perfect for the characters and stories.   Virginia Rose and Teddy Hamilton have the perfect voices to bring the story to life with the emotions that Melissa Foster writes.   I felt myself being pulled into the story with words I was hearing.  I was invested in Wyatt and Cassidy’s story and listened at every chance I could. 


eBook Review: Oh how I love these characters. They are more young adult than some of the other characters Melissa Foster usually writes about but they are just as wonderful. I felt like these could be my daughter's friends and I wanted them to be happy, safe, and successful.

I loved that Wyatt and Cassidy had been friends for so long, yet they never took their relationship to the next level. They both got jealous when the other was in a relationship but were afraid to lose each other. This goes to show that sometimes best friends make the best boyfriend/girlfriend. While they were both afraid to take that first step, I knew it was going to happen. How can sparks that bright and hot be ignored? But I do love that they talked about what would happen, they discussed if it was worth risking their friendship, and they didn't rush anything.

The other characters in this book were also wonderful. The friendships and relationships were real, fun, and something I look forward to learning more about. Every character is someone I would want to know and someone I want to know more about. This series is going to be amazing. I cannot wait for more.
