Seaside Secrets Review & 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.

Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

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

From previous Seaside Summer stories, I had been itching to know more about Tony and Amy. Their relationship had always made me curious. Book 4, Seaside Secrets, helped me get inside their heads and understand them more. 
 I loved reading the Seaside Secrets book. There were times it took me on an emotional ride due to the losses they both faced. One summer could change your life and those around you. 
Amy seems like the good girl of the Seaside Sisters. The one who is more responsible and laid-back, yet she's been hiding a secret from her friends and family. One that only Tony knows. The way Amy seemed to have acted in her youth in this story frustrated me. She pushed the one person who knew the secret and could help her cope with the loss away. She caused both of them to suffer alone. Tony has always loved and protected Amy, but he also frustrated me in the story. He didn't fight harder for Amy when she went off to college. Tony and Amy both pinned for each other for 14 years due to their stubbornness. 
In youth, we all do foolish things. Sometimes time away from those we love help us grow to realize how important they truly are. Seaside Secrets helps show that.
