Seaside Dreams by Melissa Foster & GIVEAWAY

Voted Beck Valley Books Reviewers Favorite Mini Series from the Love in Bloom Series in 2014
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.

After working hard all day, creating his beautiful metal sculptures, sinfully sexy Hunter Lacroux likes to unwind with a hot, sexy babe--or two. But after spending a handful of naughty nights with seductive and beautiful Jana Garner, the woman who challenges everything he does and says, Hunter wants more.

As a dancer, boxer, actress, and waitress, Jana is tough, organized, and as dedicated as she is committed. She has to be to maintain her crazy schedule. But when it comes to men, Jana's had a string of bad relationships, and there's only thing she'll commit to--not committing.

White-hot passion ignites every time Jana and Hunter are together, but the closer Hunter gets, the faster Jana runs. When Hunter lays on the charm, Jana throws out a challenge she's sure he can't meet, and Hunter steps up to the plate, forcing her to face her hurtful past or let go of him forever.

SEASIDE EMBRACE is part of the SEASIDE SUMMERS series, and the newest addition to the "Love in Bloom" family. Each book may be read as a stand-alone novel, or as part of the series.

My Thoughts…

Oh My Gosh!!!    Let me introduce you to Hunter Lacroux.    Woo Wee… talk about steamy, sex, hot!   He is all that and more.      While he is a tough man on the outside he has the biggest, purest, sweetest (he’d hate that) heart of any of the Love in Bloom men.     That says a lot because there are a lot of amazing men in this series.    A few of them I have claimed as my own book crush but Hunter is the top dog(he’d love that).

Seaside Embrace starts a little different than the rest of this series as that the characters are already in a hot steamy relationship, well not a relationship that they would admit to, but a bed buddies relationship.     This threw me for a loop.  I had to stop and think about this before continuing reading.     It seemed odd that they had a relationship before the story even started.   But I loved it and was hooked before I finished the first page.   

Jana Garner is just as amazing of a character.   I absolutely love how strong she is.   She speaks her mind, holds her own, isn’t afraid to push for what she wants, and just never gives up.    Yet, she has this soft side, this side that is begging for someone to sweep in and take care of her.    Hunter is applying for that job of caretaker, lover, supporter, and #1 man.  

Of course, my favorite part of this book is the friendships.    The women of Seaside are amazing.    They love with their whole hearts, protect what and who is theirs, laugh, smile, and are just the best.     They accept new comers to their group without question.      Even now with babies and hubbies thrown into the mix they still have time to chunky-dunk and just be together.  

I recommend this entire series.   They are best read in order but each book is a standalone story also.
