Seaside Sunsets + Giveaway

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.

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, and 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 sensual, 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 blond 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.

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series
**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

Melissa Foster did an excellent job of painting a vivid image in the reader's mind about what the Cape seemed like. The characters were also well done. Each individual personality stood out without overpowering another. 
Jessica Ayers is a 27 year old professional cellist looking to experience and have a "normal" life for the summer. Her mom has been micromanaging her life and getting her to focus on her orchestra career. She's lived a sheltered life and had very little for a social life. Being in the Cape and the people who reside there, Jessica experiences many first in her life. 
Jamie Reed happens to be a billionaire computer geek. He programmed his own search engine and built his empire from the ground up. He's taking the summer off from work to spend time with his matchmaking grandma, Vera. He lost his parents at an early age and was raised by his grandparents. He spent a lot of time burying his feelings behind his work.  
Jessica and Jamie are an adorable couple. Their relationship starts out fast. Jamie tries to spend as much time as he can with Jessica, with the help of his grandma Vera. Jamie helps Jessica learn more about herself and who she truly is. They're both playful, hard working, and values friendship, something Jessica didn't realize she was missing before. Just like most couples, Jamie and Jessica have their ups and downs.  
Now, Jessica has been welcomed into the Seaside Sisters. The Seaside Sisters are always finding ways to get into trouble. They're a fun loving group who support each other.
The Seaside Sister keep the story very amusing and you never know what to expect with them. The Seaside Sisters reminded me a lot of many of the friends I've made through high school and college. 
Seaside Sunsets can be slightly confusing as a stand alone because you don't have the back history of who all the characters are.
