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.
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 sinfully sexy 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?
Bella Abbascia had a plan; and falling head over heels for sexy, single father and police officer Caden Grant, was definitely not in those plans.
Bella and Caden meet in a hilarious opening scene that had me doubling over with laughter and set the pace and the mood of the book perfectly.
Caden has not dated seriously since Evan’s mother left, and Foster nails his nervous and unpractised reactions to the sizzling heat between him and Bella perfectly – leaving you laughing out loud and giggling a few times…and then swooning and wishing you could go on a not-a-date with the hunky Caden. (I totally dig my husband as well now)
I love that he has a son, and it gives their story a unique angle and shows a side to both Caden and Bella that you might not have gotten to know otherwise.
Between the beautiful scenery descriptions and the wonderful, close-knit Seaside community, you really just wish you were there and a part of their inner circle – so excited about the rest of the Seaside Summers series…so much love for them! I’m packing my bags!
“You’ll fall so hard for me you’ll be wishing you met me ten years ago…” Foster just gets it right every time.
