REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Seaside Hearts by Melissa Foster

Seaside Hearts
Seaside Summers # 2
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing October, 2014


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 damn sexy and so 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 powerless 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 sexiest, most passionate 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?
SEASIDE SUMMERS is the newest addition to 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. COMING SUMMER 2014.

Sarah's Review:
Thanks again to Tasty Book Tours and Melissa Foster for continuing to keep me hooked on these books and this amazing author!  I love these books, the characters, the settings, and the author who makes these characters come to life. 

I have been waiting for Jenna and Pete's story to happen since Leanne and Kurt's story.  I am so glad that I was able to read this story.  There has always been something about Jenna and Pete that I really wanted to see what would happen between them.  I was not disappointed at all with their romance! 

When you spend years around a person and you come to realize that you want to be something other than friends, what do you do?  Jenna decides that she is going to move one and try to forget Pete.  Pete realizes that he better figure out what he wants with Jenna before he loses her completely.

Jenna and Pete are both dealing issues involving their parents that needed to be addressed and acknowledged before they could really get to be together as a couple.  The parental issues were holding them both back to some degree.  I love how each one was there for the other one. 

I can't wait to see what happens next!  Amy and Tony need to come quick because I really want to know what happens there.
