Book tour & giveaway: Swept into Love

NEW RELEASE….

The Ryders are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy passionate contemporary romance and women’s fiction.

In SWEPT INTO LOVE…

It’s been years since Sally Tuft’s husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she’d ever wanted that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been.

Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that’s simmered between them since the day they met. Tasked with opening a new youth center in Oak Falls, Virginia, Gage hopes the trip away is just what they need to finally come together.

Before Gage and Sally ever reach Oak Falls, one night at a conference changes everything, putting their friendship–and their love–on the line, and the two must decide if getting swept up in love is the beginning of forever, or the end of their friendship as they know it.

My Review:

I am so excited for my day on the book tour for Melissa Foster’s Swept into Love! Part of the Ryders series, this time it’s Gage’s story and it is so romantic!

Gage and Sally have been best friends for years, doing things that normal couples would do. They buy gifts for others together, share dinners, work together, and Gage has been like a father to Sally’s son Rusty. Sally’s husband Dave died in a skiing accident almost 6 years earlier, and both Sally and Gage have ignored their feelings for one another. But now that Rusty has been away at college for a few years, things definitely start to change between them. 

I loved Gage and Sally’s story for several reasons, but it was basically just the incredible chemistry, love, and respect between the two of them. They were practically the perfect couple already as best friends, but once they admit their true feelings, they are unstoppable. There are several other familiar characters interlaced in the story (Blue, Jake, Trish, etc), but overall, it’s all about Gage, Sally, and Rusty.

I won’t give any spoilers, of course, but get ready for a different kind of story this time, compared to a lot of Melissa’s other novels. This romance is written differently from the others, but also made it once of the sweetest and romantic novels of hers that I have read! This is a fast-paced novel that you should prepare to be sucked in to. You will want to finish Swept into Love in one sitting, so don’t start this one if you have to be somewhere in an hour! As always, I was left feeling romantic, smiling, and full of love after reading Melissa Foster, but something about Swept into Love stands out to me, easily making this one of my favorite novels she has written.

Now she’s ready to take her adventures in a new direction and sets her sights on roughing it in the wilderness.

Jake Ryder followed in his father’s footsteps as a top search and rescue professional. He spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. Just the way he likes it.

When Jake’s sister-in-law calls, concerned because she’s been unable to reach her best friend, it’s up to Jake to find her and bring her home. But Addison isn’t lost, and she sure as hell isn’t going to be told what to do by an ornery mountain man with whom she’d spent one torrid weekend after her best friend’s wedding. Jake has never left anyone behind–will Addison be his first failed rescue?

Title: Aim
Series: Circle of Justice
Author: LP Dover
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 7, 2017
Blurb
When someone asks
what I do for a living, I answer it plain and simple . . . I’m a hunter. I hunt
the dregs of society and I’m very damn good at it.
I’m Ian Chandler,
FBI agent and a member of the Circle of Justice, an organization of justice
seeking vigilantes. My mission is to solve a string of ‘accidental’ hiking
deaths occurring around my Wyoming town. When Grace Myers –a woman who’s been
missing for days –shows up on my land, it turns out she’s the key to it all.
Someone is hunting her, and I make it my duty to keep her safe.
However, the deeper
I get into the case, the more dangerous it becomes; especially, now that I’ve
fallen for the woman I have to protect. If hunting is the game, I won’t fail. I
always hit my mark. 

**My Review**

Aim is the latest in the Circle of Justice novels by L.P. Dover. I have not read any of the other novels, however, they are each standalone so it didn’t matter in the least!

Grace Myers is a young woman in her small Wyoming town that is a successful marketing and event planner for a hotel. She has been flirting with the secretive and sexy Ian Chandler and they’ve even shared a kiss, but she hasn’t heard from him in awhile. One night she is kidnapped while leaving the hotel and Ian is contacted by Grace’s Dad, Colton, a local police officer, requesting his help in finding her. When Grace turns up on Ian’s porch, they get busy trying to figure out who kidnapped Grace and why, while also falling for one another. 

Grace was an immediately likable character that was sweet, charming, beautiful, smart, and so on. Devoting most of her time to her career or spending time with her best friend Mya, Grace hadn’t had a lot of luck in the love department. Ian was such a charismatic character that drew me in immediately. Sexy, dangerous, mysterious – but such a big-hearted romantic! I thought that their romance was a little on the fast side, but then again, this is a fast-paced novel full of tension that spurred on their relationship and protectiveness for one another.

I was quickly intrigued by the overall plot surrounding several disappearances and deaths, but I wished that the author would have developed the actual crimes and reasons behind the crimes a bit further. Written from Grace and Ian’s points of view, I wonder if one of the “bad guys” would have had a voice if it would’ve added to the suspense of the novel? 

Anyone that is a romantic suspense fan and loves strong, sexy alpha-males will love Aim. Ian is the epitome of a sexy, protective man that makes your heart melt. There is a wonderful blend of steamy scenes, suspense, sweet moments, and fearful moments. It was absolutely my pleasure to read and review this novel and participate in the release blitz and giveaway!

Excerpt

My phone rang and I thought it’d be Bryce, but it wasn’t.
“What can I do for you, Chief?”
Colton Myers was the chief of police back in Wyoming. His
call wasn’t unusual, because they often called me and my brothers when there
were cases the local PD couldn’t solve. “I need your help,” he replied, his
voice shaking.
The cab driver pulled up to the airport entrance and I
passed him a wad of bills before getting out. “What’s going on? I’m about to
get on a flight to head home.”
“Good. I’ll drop these files off with Reed, so you can see
them when you get back.”
The din of the bustling city made it hard to hear him, but I
could tell he was distraught. “Files for what?”
He sighed heavily. “You know how there’ve been missing
hikers in Montana?”
“Yeah, I saw something about it before I left for New York.”
It wasn’t uncommon for tourists to sway from the hiking trails or test their
limits by doing stupid shit. Most of those people found themselves dead. I
liked to climb the cliffs, but I was good at it.
“We’re missing people here too,” Colton confessed.
“It happens every year. Why does this case shock you?” I’d
been gone for three weeks, so I hadn’t even paid attention to what was going on
in Wyoming.
He huffed angrily. “About three weeks ago, eight men
supposedly went missing in our mountains. Just this morning, I couldn’t get a
hold of Grace. Her boss also called me and said she never showed up at their
meeting last night. Her car is still at the hotel. It’s like she disappeared.”
“You’ve got to be shitting me,” I growled low.
Grace was his daughter and a good friend of mine. Hell, I’d
wanted to be more than that for quite some time. I only held back from pursuing
her out of respect for her father. She was one of the most beautiful women I’d
ever known.
“Please, Ian. I have to find her.”
Hurrying through the doors, impatience flooded through my
veins. “We’ll find her, if it’s the last thing I
do . . . I swear.”

ShapeOfMyHeart

Like a Phoenix from the Ashes, True Love Can Arise from Illness and Death.

An aspiring fashion designer, Amy’s life changes when her mother suddenly falls ill. Her mother needs life-saving surgery, and it’s up to Amy to acquire the funds.

A famous and highly valued football player, Josh has an incredible lifetime of excellence in his sport. His life crumbles when his mother and sister are killed in a car crash while on their way to see his last game of the season. Distraught with self-loathing and self-blame, Josh descends into a life of alcoholism and loose women that threatens to ruin his football career and possibly his life.

Mission Impossible?

A friend sets Amy up with a job as a PA at the LA PR Agency which represents Josh’s football team, the Gladiators. Her task is to whip Josh into shape mentally and physically for the next football season.

From Worst Person in the World to Love of a Lifetime?

Shocked to her core, Amy discovers that Josh is the worst person in the world. His daily protests, unsavory habits, and loose women are unbelievable. Josh is equally annoyed with Amy. As Amy gets Josh to see some hope, a spark is kindled…

Will that spark grow into a flaming romance? Or will they return to their regular lives?

Excerpt

A series of female giggles pierced the silence. She looked upstairs to where the sound resonated and saw two women in barely there bikini’s running down the steps. Behind them was Joshua Mancini himself wearing a pair of shorts and a black t-shirt. He was chasing the women.

Amy geared herself up to meet her new employer. Even if she was appalled at the state of the house she had to make that first impression a good one.

As he got closer she saw that he was truly handsome indeed with his sleek muscle and untamed pride. What she saw online was totally drool-worthy, but those images had nothing on the real-life Joshua Mancini who was six feet six, extremely well built with a rigid wall of a chest that bulged against the soft fabric of his t- shirt. He was breathtaking to look at with his black shiny, spiky hair, tanned skin and piercing eyes with an unusual mix of blue and green. Turquoise. That was the color. It was turquoise like the sea in somewhere like the Caribbean. Not that she’d ever been, but she’d seen enough pictures.

He was the kind of man that made you want to stare, even against your will. She quickly adjusted herself and her focus. It would do her no good to go all girlie weak-kneed and turn into some babbling buffoon in front of him. She had to look professional.

He looked her over with appreciation as he made his descent down the stairs and stopped a few paces away from her, making her feel like a dwarf even in her heels that added an extra two inches to her mere five feet and four inches. The women joined him and giggled as they tried to fix each other’s hair.

“Good, the stripper’s here,” he said with a wide smile that revealed super gorgeous dimples in his exotic high cheek bones. It took her a second or two to realize that he was referring to her.

“No, no I’m from the agency,” she replied quickly.
“I’m Amy, your new PA.” That was when he looked up at her and narrowed his eyes. “If you could just point me in the direction of the office I’ll get started.”

There, that was professional.

To her surprise, however, he started to laugh. It was the usual sort of off balanced laughter you’d expect from someone who was truly wasted and didn’t know what they were even laughing at. “Those people are jokers.”

“This is no joke. I’ll take care of all your paperwork and everything.” She offered a smile.

“Ha, ha. Everything? Well, you can start in there.” He set his square jaw in a firm line and pointed to the mess in the living room. “Clean that up will you.”

Her mouth dropped. She attempted to protest but he just walked away, leaving her there to gawk at the crazy mess.

My Review:

Who, What, When, Where

Forever Hearts is the story of Jesse and Riley that have been best friends since they were five years old and Jessie’s family had moved in across the street from Riley. Jesse is a very hot, popular, biracial young man who becomes one of the star basketball players in high school. Riley sticks to smaller groups of friends and works hard to make good grades, eventually leading to college and a career in design. But during their senior year and throughout college, they struggle with their feelings for one another that progress way beyond just friendship.

Thoughts and Reactions

I really loved this novel! I’ve started to realize that I’m a huge fan of best friends to lovers novels, but this one was amazing. They had such a close bond and a strong friendship making me feel the love and commitment between them. Jesse was somewhat of a player while in high school while Riley hadn’t even experienced her first kiss. The author walks the reader through their growing up, dealing with romantic and sexual feelings, as well as, challenges among friendships and romantic relationships.

Riley’s college roommate Liza was a fantastic secondary character in that she was fun, spunky, but also very supportive of Riley and her feelings for Jessie. Riley’s police officer father was definitely a challenge due to his being against Riley dating someone who was biracial, although Riley’s mother had absolutely no issue with it. Her Dad went above and beyond trying to keep them apart whether as friends or more, adding to the conflict that they already created for themselves. There was amazing chemistry and some very hot scenes between Riley and Jessie, however, their main problem was communication due to both of them struggling to be honest about their feelings. 

The plot definitely held my attention as it depicted Riley and Jessie growing up, experiencing relationships with others, and dealing with their underlying feelings for one another. There were funny moments, heartbreaking moments, and definitely sexy moments from beginning to end. I highly recommend this romantic and addictive novel!

Excerpt
I shower, get dressed, make it all the way to my car, before
I realize that I left my cell phone in my apartment. I pat my pockets, check my
purse, and glance at the dashboard to see if the Bluetooth symbol is
illuminated—it isn’t. I groan audibly as I switch off the ignition and rush
back into the cold. It’s mid-March, yet the thermometer has barely reached
thirty degrees this week, and with the wind whipping through the air, the “real
feel” is in the single digits.
Back inside my apartment I locate my phone on the kitchen
counter, still plugged into the charger. As I pick it up, my eyes scan over
several notifications, one of which is a text message from Bill.
Bill: Hi, Sweetie. Just got back from the airport with my
parents. Reservations are at seven. Are you on your way?
I glance at the clock. It’s five forty-five. I can make it
across town with plenty of time to spare—I think. Bill’s
perpetually early, as in if we do not arrive twenty minutes prior to the start
of any function—and I do mean any and every function—
he panics. He’s chronically early; I’m chronically late. We balance each other
out…in theory, anyway.
My thumb swipes the screen, but my fingers are too cold to
register the touch, so I drop the phone and blow into my hands in an attempt to
warm them up. A minute later, I type a quick message to Bill.
Riley: Omw. Left ten minutes ago.
This is an outright lie; I’m still standing in my
kitchen and I would never text and drive. He should know
that after nine months of dating, but he simply agrees.
Bill: Ok.
His response is simple. Quick. Efficient. Just like him.
I knock on Bill’s front door thirty minutes
later—traffic was heavier and slower than I anticipated. His mother and father
are seated on the sofa. It’s not the first time I’m meeting them, but every
time they visit I have the feeling I should be walking on eggshells. They’re
prim and proper, formal, refined—the exact opposite of me.
“Mr. and Mrs. Lewg.” I smile as I embrace first his father,
then his mother, in the world’s most awkward hug. “So good to see you.”
“Lovely to see you, dear.” Mrs. Lewg—Carole, though she’s
never told me to call her that—says. “Bill was just telling us he has a special
announcement before we leave for dinner.”
“Oh?” I raise my eyebrows as I turn toward Bill. My mind
quickly scans over our last few conversations. I can’t remember him talking
about any major deal specifically, apart from the new property, but that deal
closed weeks ago. All right, okay, I may not pay one hundred
percent attention when he blabs on and on about investment properties or the
price per square foot of Building A versus Building B, but can you blame me?
Commercial real estate is freaking boring. Take it from me, I should know; it’s
all Bill ever seems to talk about.
“Riley.” Bill makes no effort to move from in front of the
mantle where he stands, but he extends his hand and pulls me toward him. “Can
you come here for one second? There’s something I want to ask you. Something
I’ve wanted to ask you for a long time.”
The smiling face of my roommate pops to mind and her words
bounce around my brain. You’ll be engaged before me. But
surely that’s not what this is. We haven’t been together that long. I haven’t
even given him a key to my apartment yet. He just met my
family.
“Riley Ann Jones.” He takes both my hands, and I will myself
to close my mouth, which gapes open in the most unflattering way.
Oh, shit. Oh, no. Fuck. Please don’t let him be asking
what I think he’s going to—
“This past year…” —nine months, I
automatically correct in my head— “has been the happiest year of my life.
You’re everything that I want in a life partner: smart, beautiful, kind,
honest…”
I swallow. I’m not so honest.
He drops to one knee, looks up at me with caring brown eyes.
“Would you do me the honor of becoming my wife?”
My gaze darts around the room, heart beating wildly in my
chest, not from excitement, but from fear.
His mother smiles at me encouragingly, as Bill cracks open a
small, velvet jewelry box. “It was my grandmother’s. It’s been in our family
for generations. I asked my mother to bring it in with her.” He waves with his
free hand to where his parents sit. “It’s part of the reason why they flew in
early.” He smiles again. “So, will you? Will you be my wife?”
Holy fuck. Bill scrunches his nose and I press
my lips together, sending another silent prayer heavenward that I didn’t just
say fuck in front of his parents. In front of my (potential)
future in-laws.
“Kind of waiting on an answer here, Riley.” His voice jokes,
but I can see the tension around his eyes.
I squeeze my eyes tight, swallow a deep breath, and nod.
“Yes.” My voice is the faintest of whispers. “Yes, I’ll marry you.”
“Wonderful!” his mother exclaims, clapping her hands in
front of her chest. Bill pulls himself to his feet and slips the ring onto my
left finger. It’s delicate, a solitaire, round-cut stone, light and classy, but
it feels like a heavy anchor pulling me down. I’m suffocating. Sinking.
Drowning.
Mr. Lewg claps Bill on the back. “Congratulations, son.”
They shake hands as though they’re business associates rather than father and
son.
Bill locks eyes with me, the megawatt smile that is
plastered on every billboard within a thirty-mile radius beams at me. He mouths
“I love you,” but all I can do is nod because there’s only one thought looping
through my mind right now, and if I’m not careful, the words will escape and
topple the house of cards that I’ve struggled to build this entire year.
Those words are on my mind throughout our indulgent,
five-course meal.
They’re there later that night when Bill makes love to me
and tells me how happy he is.
And they’re still there long after his breath has slowed and
he has fallen asleep. Then, and only then, do I let the devastating truth fall
past my lips:
He’s not Jesse.

Synopsis:

There may be two sides to every story, but sometimes there’s only one way to set things right…

Music is Elijah’s life. His band plays loud and hard, and he’ll do anything to get them a big break. He needs that success to help take care of his sister, who has special needs. So he’d rather be practicing when his friends drag him to a musical in the next town…until the lead starts to sing.

Kristen dreams of a career on stage like her grandmother’s. She knows she needs an edge to get into a competitive theater program–and being the star in her high school musical isn’t going to cut it. The applause and the attention only encourage her to work harder.

Elijah can’t take his eyes off of Kristen’s performance and snaps a photo of her in a costume that he posts online with a comment that everybody misunderstands. It goes viral. Suddenly, Elijah and Kristen are in a new spotlight as the online backlash spins out of control. And the consequences are bigger than they both could have ever imagined because these threats don’t stay online…they follow them into real life.

**My Review**

The Way it Hurts is an upcoming novel by author Patty Blount that addresses challenges of growing up, especially when social media is involved. 

Elijah and his best friends, Nick and Sam, have a hard rock/metal band named Ride Out. Music is Elijah’s life and all he wants is for the band to gain exposure and make it big. Despite problems at home with his special needs sister, Anna, Elijah devotes as much time and energy as he can to grow their band.

Kristen has an incredible singing voice and Elijah is hypnotized by it when he first hears her in a school play. Kristen dreams of studying acting, dance, and singing at a music conservatory and eventually being on stage in Broadway shows. When approached by Elijah about singing with their band, she isn’t sure, but her outgoing performer grandmother, Etta, encourages her to step out of her comfort zone. 

The problem? A series of posts on social media promote Ride Out and Kristen’s voice, but it all spirals out of control. Between problems at home, the tension between the band members, and social media chaos – Elijah and Kristen have feelings for each other even though everyone has warned them against trying getting involved. 

Author Patty Blount includes so many relevant issues and situations in this novel that make it not only important to read, but it’s also very engaging. First is the social media issue that is so often the culprit for problems with adolescents today. Elijah sends out a comment about Kristen that he meant specifically about her voice, but it soon goes viral and is misconstrued. Excited about all of the attention, Elijah plays it off as being o.k. and that it will eventually die down, however, it only gets worse and results in several scary and dangerous situations. 

The Way it Hurts also addresses the life of a family having a child with Autism. Elijah struggles to protect his sister, Anna, while her parents are looking for help with their daughter who is getting stronger and more explosive. There is so much love between them all, but there is also an extreme amount of guilt that you could practically feel coming off of them while reading. 

Kristen’s family is also tested in the novel dealing with an illness in the family. The author depicts a normally happy-go-lucky family as they suffer through the fear of a loved one being ill in a very realistic way and details what an impact it has on our lives. 

The characterization and plot development kept me interested in this novel from the first page to the last, however, I found myself frustrated with several characters throughout the novel, especially Elijah’s bandmate Sam. Although this further proves the author’s fantastic ability at building her characters, there were moments that I just wanted to yell at Sam and Elijah for the repetitive selfish and immature comments and behaviors. 

I highly recommend The Way it Hurts to young adult fiction fans that want a mix of topics in their novels. So many issues are addressed from a young romance to the dangers of social media that I feel this novel is relevant to almost any reader. I look forward to reading more from Patty Blount in the future and will continue thinking about this novel and characters for quite some time. 

Advanced Praise for The Way It Hurts:

“Blount writes authentically; both protagonists’ voices are distinct. The author explores the rapidly consuming world of social media and how it affects relationships online and in real life. A relevant read and must-have for all YA collections.” – School Library Journal

“THE WAY IT HURTS draws our attention to the joy, heartache and confusing contradictions that arise as we try to find our place in the real world and the virtual one.” – Kimberly Sabatini

Elijah and Kristen’s personal evolutions through the novel, along with their chemistry, feel as authentic as the conflicts they face. A genuine plot filled with steady tension that will keep readers hooked.” RT Book Reviews

“This book sensitively covers topics such as sexism, handicapping conditions, communication, and ageism. Agency is also shown when Kristen says she wants to pursue studies in a conservatory rather than continue in the band and the three young men acknowledge her wish. Talking about what bothers us rather than trying to guess another person’s feelings is demonstrated through the actions of the characters. The characters’ issues are eventually resolved through hard work and understanding, making this an interesting and informative read.” School Library Connection

Excerpt:

Elijah took my hands. “Okay, look. Maybe you’re right. Maybe these people are taking this whole battle thing way too seriously. If you’re scared, then we’ll stop. No more posts except for appearance information.”

“So no more battle of the sexes, no more make Kris scream?”

He held up his hand. “Swear to God.”

“Okay.” I sighed in relief. “You’d really do that?”

He leaned closer and repeated the vow. “I promise, Kris.”

And just like that, I forgot why I was mad at him. I couldn’t talk, couldn’t breathe, couldn’t even blink because I was afraid he’d let go. This was the part of him I adored. I clung to him for a long moment, and when his gaze drifted to my mouth, I wondered if—hoped—prayed—he’d finally kiss me.

And then, Etta’s voice suddenly spoke inside my head. “Well, my God, darling, it’s the twenty-first century. What on earth are you waiting for? You can kiss him.”

I could. Yes. Yes, I could just lift my head and lean in and kiss Elijah Hamilton like it was a normal, ordinary occurrence.

Right. Like kissing Elijah Hamilton would ever be ordinary?

I’d watched him kiss that girl at the mall and was sure I’d memorized all the steps in his routine. He’d move in, grip my face between his hands, run his thumb along my jaw, and finally, glide his arm down around my body, pulling me against his own, all the while, peeking through his lashes to see if I enjoyed it.

I wasn’t sure when I decided—even what made me decide. I just touched my lips to his and waited.

It took a second or two. But then there was a sudden, tiny squeak from him, and I felt the pulse in his wrist leap under my fingertips.

And then, his hands were in my hair, angling my head just the way he liked it, his tongue brushing against mine, so soft it might have been my imagination…except imaginary kisses were never so intense. He kissed me like I was a song he wrote, lips wrapped around every word until it hummed with hidden meaning and promise, and his hands held me the way they held his guitar—like the music would stop if he let me go.

Native New Yorker Patty Blount is the award-winning author of several critically acclaimed internet issues novels for teens as well as a few adult contemporary romances. She is inspired to write by such greats as Judy Blume, JK Rowling, and Gayle Forman. In fact, Judy Blume is the reason Patty elected to write under her real name…so she’d appear on shelves next to her idol.

When not crushing on actors Gilles Marini or Sam Heughan, Patty can be found sitting in traffic somewhere on the Long Island Expressway, listening to audio books or talking wildly to herself about plots and characters. Prone to falling madly in love with fictional characters, Patty suffers frequent broken hearts when they all invariably prefer the heroine to her… go figure. When she’s not writing, Patty loves to watch bad sci-fi movies and live tweet the hilarity, and scour Pinterest for ideas on awesome bookcases. Patty lives on Long Island with her family in a house that, sadly, lacks bookcases.

Blog tour, review, & giveaway: Hearts at Seaside

NEW RELEASE…

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you’ll be begging to enter their circle of friends! All books can be read as stand-alone novels.

Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster’s steamy romance novel Seaside Hearts. The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

In HEARTS at SEASIDE…

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

Hearts at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Hearts by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

My Review:

I’m so excited for my day on the Hearts at Seaside tour! Like the others in this series, I loved the characters and the romance!

Hearts at Seaside is all about the funny, outgoing Jenna, who has had a crush on Pete forever (although he hasn’t noticed her). Jenna starts out a new season at the Cape ready to move past her longtime feelings for Pete and decides to walk up to a sexy construction worker and ask him out. Little does she know that while Pete watches her approach the guy and exchange numbers, she awakens Pete’s true feelings. As the summer goes on, Jenna realizes that there is so much more to Pete than she ever knew!

I’ve loved Jenna’s character since the beginning of the Seaside Summer series. Between being funny and quirky, she’s just always been a great, outgoing woman. It was great to see her so empowered as she decided it was time to give up on Pete, but it was still obvious that she loved him and had loved him for years.

I learned a lot more about Pete in this novel, especially the private struggles he’s endured with his family. But I also learned about Pete’s sexy, jealous, adorable side that made me fall in love with yet another book character!

Addison Cole’s Seaside Summer series is described as “sweet with heat,” but once again I can assure you that there is plenty of heat in Hearts at Seaside and the chemistry between Pete and Jenna is incredible. 

Besides being a romance, this novel is also based on friendship, family, and overcoming struggles with the help of those we love and trust. The friendship between Leanna, Jenna, Bella, and Amy is amazing and inspiring, reminding you of the importance of friends. And the way the men accept and love all of these women despite their crazy bond and crazy ways, is fantastic. 

Hearts at Seaside is written beautifully with the characters perfectly balanced between simple and complex. Although the main story is Jenna and Pete, there are several subplots that just enhance the beauty of this novel. Addison Cole has once again blown me away and I cannot wait to read the next installment in the series!

**Many thanks to Addison Cole and Beck Valley Tours for providing this ARC in exchange for my honest review!

Read, Write, Love at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 1)
Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he’s come to finish his latest thriller — that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt’s best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt’s as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn’t even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna’s come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can’t get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she’s just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

Dreaming at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 2)
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

Sunsets at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 4)
Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his plans.

From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sweet, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.
